NANO BROWS- WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER PROCEDURE
This phase lasts for the first few hours following the treatment. You may experience redness, swelling, skin sensitivity and oozing plasma (clear body fluid). These symptoms usually settle down within a few hours and should not last more than 24 hours. At this stage, eyebrows will look thicker and darker than the final result. *Its important to blot dry the oozing plasma with a clean cotton ball on the first day (if instructed), as it may cause thicken scabs that could affect color retention*
Your eyebrows will still look darker and thicker during the first four days following the Nano brow procedure. You will begin to feel the treated area drying out. The upper layer of skin starts to build a scab preparing to flake off. *Moisturize your eyebrows 2-3 times per day with after care product provided. ONLY USE A “RICE GRAIN” SIZED AMOUNT. *Too much product WILL PROLONG HEALING AND AFFECT COLOR*
This phase consists mainly of flaking and peeling off of the top layer of the treated area which usually starts at day 5 and lasts for 3-5 days. The top layer of skin should peel off in fine sections (if client is correctly following aftercare instructions) Please note, some skin types tend to prolong this phase. The eyebrows tend to be itchy during this phase, Do not scratch or pick. keep them moisturized with the aftercare ointment provided as directed and lightly tap if needed.
This phase is called the milky film and usually happens in the 2nd week after all peeling is complete. In this phase, brow color appears light, grayish and if you had hair strokes done, they will seem cloudy and dull. This happens because a fine layer of dead skin is still covering the color underneath, but this will naturally flake away within a few days and the color starts to bloom.
This is the last phase of the healing process of your Digital (Nano) brows which usually lasts 3-6 weeks. In this stage, color becomes more vibrant and the hairline strokes look more clean and crisp. This is a very important phase for your skin to fully heal and repair itself. A minimal touchup session may be needed for any patchy spots or fading. Correctly following aftercare instructions is key to optimal results.
Eyebrow Aftercare instructions
No water on the eyebrows until ALL OF THE SCABS HAVE FALLEN OFF. When washing your face, clean around your brows. Please apply THIN LAYER of aftercare gel 3 times daily as instructed.
DO NOT apply any eyebrow make up or powder after treatment.
NO heavy sweating, saunas or gym workouts until after all scabs have flaked off.
Eyebrows will begin to peel and fade after day 5, Please DO NOT peel brows off or pick dry skin. (The eyebrow area may be sensitive, itchy and patchy during the healing process)
The color intensity will decrease 30-40% during the peeling and healing process (PLEASE DO NOT BE ALARMED, THIS IS NORMAL)
After all scabs have completely flaked off, you may resume all normal facial routines and apply make up.
Permanent Makeup is almost always a two or more step process to achieve optimal results. During the healing process, the treated area is trying to heal and repair itself and the lymphatic system is trying to push out all external particles to prevent contamination. This explains why the color implanted the first time is not perfect after healing. In many cases, the area treated may fade unevenly, may be very pale or hairline strokes may not be visible. It takes AT LEAST 4 weeks for the skin cells to regenerate, settle in and pigment to reappear. *All skin is different and can respond differently during healing and retaining the pigment.
Once the treated area is completely healed, any changes or additions that need to be made will be done at your touchup appointment. Proper care following your procedure will ensure the best results and your investment in YOU will bear long lasting, beautiful results.
