PRE-CARE FOR ALL MICROBLADING AND PERMANENT MAKEUP PROCEDURES ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO LIMIT BLEEDING AND SKIN SENSITIVITIES DURING THE SERVICE.  eXCESSIVE BLEEDING CAN CAUSE DILUTION OF THE PIGMENT AND LEAD TO POOR HEALING AND RESULTS.

  • Pregnant or Breastfeeding

  • Diabetic

  • Viral infections and/or diseases

  • Pacemaker or heart conditions

  • NO alcohol or caffeine 48 hours before procedure.

  • Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure.

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure. These medications will thin out the blood and therefore cause more bleeding during the procedure.

  • Discontinue Retin-A, Chemical and Laser Peels, microdermabrasions, and Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) at least 4 weeks before the procedure (and avoid on eyebrow area after procedure to prevent premature fading).

  • No waxing, tinting, or threading one week prior to appointment.  Threading is included during procedure.

  • Botox and filler on the forehead, temple, and eye area should be avoided 2 months prior to procedure for those who do not regularly receive injections.

  • Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

** There are no implied or written guarantees by BEAUTY MARK if you do not follow these pre-care instructions

EYEBROW TATTOO POST-CARE

 CLEANSING & IMMEDIATE AFTERCARE

  • 24 HOURS AFTER PROCEDURE: Blot brows with tissue to absorb lymphatic fluid **

  • With clean hands, gently cleanse your eyebrows morning and night with lukewarm water and a mild, fragrance-free soap ONLY

  • Allow eyebrows to completely dry before applying ointment (only use gentle patting motion and use a paper towel)

  • Once brows have dried, apply a THIN layer of the provided ointment on each brow with clean fingertips

  • Avoid sweating (such as from vigorous exercise) for 24 hours.

DRY HEAL (AFTER DAY 3)

  • Continue apply a tiny amount of ointment to keep the scabs a little soft for better retention.

  • DO NOT PICK, PEEL, OR PULL ON ANY SKIN THAT IS DRY OR HANGS FROM THE TATTOO AREA. It is extremely important to allow these skin cells to shed on their own naturally. Pulling on the skin or on a scab will warp and pull the ink from the tattoo.for at least one week post-procedure or until healing is complete

  • Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the affected area

  • Do not scrub or pick at treated areas.

  • Do not use peroxide or Neosporin on treated areas.

  • Do not expose area to direct sun or to tanning beds.

  • Avoid exposing the area excessive moisture or humidity, such as:

    • facials, swimming, whirlpools (hot tubs), saunas, steam rooms, and extremely hot showers.

  • Avoid Retin-A, moisturizers, glycolic acids, exfoliants and anti-aging products at all times (not just during healing) on all tattooed areas. These can cause pigments to fade and lighten prematurely.

  • Avoid tanning beds, sun, chlorine spas and pools, soap and chemicals (including skin cleansers, makeup removers, alpha hydroxyl creams)

​​LONG TERM CARE

  • Use a good sunblock over your eyebrows.  Sun exposure will fade your permanent makeup.  Tanning beds are extremely harsh on permanent makeup.

  • If you are planning for a chemical peel, laser procedure or any type of work by a professional around your permanent makeup site  always inform the practitioner as it may alter the color of the brows.

  • The use of Retin-A/Tretinoin or any other rapid skin exfoliation products used regularly around the eyebrow area will cause premature fading.  Any type of "acids" or chemical peels used regularly around the eyebrow area will cause premature fading.  

  • The time you may consider coming in for a color enhancement  is when you feel the need to add more color to your brows.  Rather than picking up the pencil, pick up the phone to schedule your maintenance appointment!

** ALL SEMI-PERMANENT COSMETIC PROCEDURES ARE MULTI-SESSION PROCESSES ** 

An initial application is incomplete until after a follow-up appointment, which must be scheduled approximately 6-8 weeks after your initial appointment. There is no additional charge for the first touch-up appointment after your initial application as long as it is performed up to 8 weeks of the initial application. See our policies for further details.

** Following the proper post-care is necessary to achieve the best results. Mature age, poor diet, stress, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, age, general health, sleep/fatigue can affect your healing process.
