Ultra Brows Before and After-Care Instructions
Before your appointment
• Avoid alcohol, caffeine, Aspirin or Ibuprofen for 24 hours before the procedure.
• Because Botox can alter the position of your brows, it should be performed no later than at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
• Thoroughly read all the forms given to you at the time of your appointment and ask any questions you may have.
• Be sure to advise me of any allergies, medical conditions, prior permanent eyebrow make-up and prescriptions you take prior to your appointment.
After-Care - It usually takes around 10 days for the skin to heal. However, you should follow the After Care until you skin is completely healed. Your skin is healed when all flaking and/or scabbing is gone.
Apply coconut oil on your brows gently every few hours. Careful not to get into eyes.
Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with warm water. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.
Apply a light amount of coconut oil on them gently after cleansing in the morning and night. Freely apply coconut oil throughout the day. Or if itching occurs.
Important reminders for the healing period:
• Do not rub or pick at your brows. This can cause scarring, blurring, and/or infection. Should there be any scabbing, let them fall off naturally. • Aside from your daily gentle washes as noted above, do not soak your brows in water (ex. bath tub, sauna, pool, or hot tub). When washing your face, wash around the brow area. Showers are fine, but limit them to five minutes to prevent too much steam around the brow area. • Avoid facials, chemical treatments, Botox. • Do not allow makeup, lotions, or other products to come into contact with the treated area.
• Stay out of direct sunlight and tanning booths. You can go outside of course! I just suggest avoiding laying out at the pool or a beach until your brows are healed. If you are going to the beach or pool wear a hat that shields your brows from the sun until you're healed, like a visor or baseball cap. • Consult a physician if you have ANY signs of infection, which could include redness in the brow area (aside from the first few hours after your appointment), foul smell, green or yellow discharge, and/or fever. • Should you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 843-209-9416.
Long-term After-care - After your skin has healed
• Inform your technician of your semi-permanent brows at the time of any laser procedures or MRIs.
• Always use a good sunscreen to protect your brows from fading caused by sun exposure. Extreme sun exposure can and will fade your pigment. This can be minimized by applying a good sunscreen of at least SPF25. • Be aware that the use of chemical peels, exfoliants, and bleaching agents in the forehead region can expedite the fading of your semi-permanent brows.
