PMU (Eyebrows) Aftercare

General Instructions for ALL Permanent Cosmetic Make-up Applications

For 7 days following application of Permanent cosmetics:

  • Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingers, they may have bacteria on them and create an infection.

  • The first day keep them dry and clean. Do quick shower in the next 3-4 days.

  • Apply your favorite antibiotic ointment, A & D or Vaseline 2-3 times daily for 7 days

  •  Always use a clean cotton swab and not your fingertips. We suggest Vaseline, as it is non-reactive in most clients.

  • No make-up, tinting or lashes or brows, sun, soap, sauna, Jacuzzi, swimming in chlorine pools or in the recreational bodies of water, contact with animals, gardening for 7-10 days, (until area is completely healed) post procedure and after all touch-ups.

  • Before bathing, gently apply a light coating of Vaseline on the procedure area using a clean cotton swab. Continue this regime until the procedure area has completely healed.

  • Do not rub or traumatize the procedure area while it is healing (pigment may be removed along with crusting tissue).

  • Use a “total sun block” after the procedure area has healed to prevent future fading of pigment color.

  • Do not use products that contain AHA’s on the procedure area. (Example: Glycolic, Lactic Acids. Always check your product labeling) it will fade your pigment color.

  • Try to sleep on a satin pillowcase while the procedure area is healing.

  • If you have any questions or concerns please notify your technician immediately.

  • If you are a blood donor, you may not give blood for 1 year following your Permanent Make-up application (per Red Cross).

  • Touch-up visits should be scheduled between 4-8 weeks post procedure. All Permanent Make-up procedures are a two-step process. Results are not determined until touch-up application is completed.

  • If you experience any itching, swelling, blistering or any other complications post-procedure, stop using product and call your technician immediately. You may be allergic to the after care product you are using!

  • If you have excessive redness, swelling or tenderness or any red streaks going from the procedure site toward the heart, elevated temperature, or purulent drainage from the procedure site, contact your physician as the area may be infected and you may need to seek medical care.

  • Failure to follow these instructions may result in pigment color loss!

  • All permanent make-up procedures are a two-step process.

  • We suggest a yearly ‘Color Refresher’ to maintain your procedure color integrity.
