It is crucial that aftercare instructions are followed during the healing process. Failure to do so may affect results.


  1. Permanent Cosmetics area will begin to oxidize and gradually get darker.  The darkest will be the following day.

  2. Area will begin to scab/flake with the healing time consisting of 7-10 days but this solely depends on the person and their body. Some women may heal in 4 days, but some in 2 weeks. Do not compare yourself to others.  Please try to schedule your events accordingly.

  3. When they start to peel DO NOT pick at them, as the area that has been picked at will be lighter than the rest once healing is finished. When the peeling is completed, you are able to proceed with your regular routine.

  4. Always sleep on your back; generally side and stomach sleepers tend to have the worst retention as the scabs are removed in their sleep from the surrounding areas.

  5. Working out is not recommended as it produces sweat and may cause pre-mature lifting of the scabs.  This include swimming, hot yoga, and sauna.  If any of this is done, it can cause your scabs to peel prematurely and can even lose pigment.

  6. The healing process is very similar to a tattoo on your body. Nothing should be touching the permanent makeup area during healing. This includes shampoo, cleansers, makeup etc. From the moment you walk out with your new brows they will become significantly darker and will begin to scab.

  7. If you would like to cleanse the area, water is acceptable.  Always PAT dry with PAPER TOWEL.

  8. Apply balm that is provided at the time of the appointment once per day for seven days in the mornings.  With oilier skin clients, apply balm for five days. This acts as a protective barrier.  ONLY ADD A PAPER THIN AMOUNT.  Gently apply onto area in a TAPPING MOTION. 

  9. Never expect your permanent cosmetics to be perfect the very first time.  There can be times where scabs come off too early and poor retention is caused.  This is why there is always a free touch up appointment to fix any areas.


Depending on your body, skin type, and lifestyle, your permanent cosmetic area can last anywhere from 1 to 2 years. Most ladies like to come back for a touch up after every year at a smaller cost. If you are a very active individual and are exposed to the sun often, your brows may fade quicker.  You can maximize the length of your new brows by applying sunscreen to protecting them from fading.
