The day of the treatment: Absorb
Days 1-7: Wash
Wash daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, and dead skin. (Don’t worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!) Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena. 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 with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.
Days 1-7 Moisturize
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
AWM should have you covered, but here are some extra tips to help with a smooth and easy recovery:
•Use a fresh pillowcase while you sleep.
•Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color.
•No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
•Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week.
•Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after the procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors.
•Avoid long, hot showers for the first 10 days.
•Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
•Avoid face-down swimming, lakes, and hot tubs for the first 10 days
•Avoid topical makeup and sunscreen on the area.
•DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area.
