HEALING PROCESS

 

Immediately following your appointment, your eyeliner may look harsh and painted on. This will soften up and look a lot more natural as it heals…please be patient! The outer layer of color will appear crusty and start to flake off. Do not pick, scratch, or rub the treated area or attempt to remove the crusty material. As your lash enhancement heals, you may notice that the color appears lighter and/or softer.

 

AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

 

Day 1 of Treatment:

·      After your appointment, do not touch your eyes. Before bed you can ice your eyes by placing it on top of a fresh paper towel or tissue. Do not put ice directly on skin.

·      Do not wash eyes and try to keep them dry.

·      If your eyes are swollen, you may take Tylenol.

·      Remember, dry healing is best; however, if you are extremely itchy and uncomfortable you may apply a rice grain amount of Aquaphor with a Q-tip. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

·      Gently rinse your eyes each morning and night with water and a gentle soap (ex. Dial, baby shampoo, Cetaphil). With a very light touch, use your clean fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 5-10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue or let air dry. Do not use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants. Do not use soap, cleanser, or shampoo on the treated area for 7-10 days. All cleansing should be done with a clean Q-tip dipped in cool water and gently dabbed on the treated area. Do not rub the treated area.

·      Stay out of direct sunlight and tanning booths. You can go outside of course! Avoid 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 eyes from the sun until you're healed, like a visor or baseball cap.

·      Aside from your daily gentle washes as noted above, do not soak your eyes in water until healed (ex. bath tub, sauna, pool, or hot tub). When washing your face, wash around the eye area. Showers are fine but limit them to five minutes to prevent too much steam around the eye area.

·      Avoid facials, chemical treatments, and Botox until your eyes are healed.

·      Do not allow makeup, lotions, or other products to touch the treated area. No eye makeup until healed!

 

Day 2-10 of Treatment:

·      You can resume wearing eye makeup after day 7. New mascara is recommended to prevent old bacteria being introduced to procedure area.

·      You can resume using lash serum or getting new eyelash extensions 4 weeks after your touchup appointment. Do not use in between appointments.
