EYEBROW TATTOO MELBOURNE
Tattooed Eyebrows Healing Process
The healing process is a significant and fascinating part of your permanent makeup procedure. It differs from person to person and relies on several variables. Here is what to expect in three phases of your eyebrow tattoo healing process.
Phase 1: First Two Weeks
As soon as you finish your eyebrow tattoo procedure, the healing process starts. You may experience redness, swelling, skin sensitivity, and perhaps some minor bruising. All are standard side effects pertaining to tattoo eyebrows, but this doesn’t last more than two (2) days. A great over the counter pain reliever should help the eyebrow tattoo healing time. The great news is, that unlike other decorative tattoo improvements (such as eyeliner and lips), tattoo eyebrows are least influenced by swelling and bruising. Remember, if bruising or swelling lasts more than a day or two, it could be an indication of illness.
The look of your new long-term eyebrows will be thicker and darker than you may anticipate. Generally after about a week or so of the semi permanent make up healing process, the region and top layer begins to scab and “shed” away in sections. The new open pigment will finally soften into an appropriate natural look. To help aid in the healing process of your new tattooed eyebrows in this time, apply aquaphor or antibiotic ointment during the night prior to going to sleep. This can help cut back on the chance of infection. Additionally, take care to restrict any excessive physical activity or exposure to direct sun. This first interval should take about two (2) weeks for your tattooed eyebrows to completely cure and place.
Phase 2: Second Two Weeks
During this phase of the healing procedure, as eyebrow tattoo shedding and scabbing happens, you might feel tempted to dab your eyebrows with something cold. It’s possible for you to use anything from a cold compress to damp tea bags to dab the eyebrows. You only have to make sure you only add light pressure when putting them onto the eyebrows. After about two (2) weeks, your eyebrows will have largely recovered during the “shedding” procedure.
Phase 3: Touch Up Procedure
About four (4) weeks following your initial eyebrow tattoo appointment, you need to schedule a “touch up” with your accredited long-term cosmetic professional. Your specialist will examine the tattoo again, repair, and fill to darken the pigment in almost any areas needing adjustment or correction. Also, in the next visit, if your eyebrow color has settled into an unwanted tone, it may be fixed after several weeks following the general semi permanent makeup aftercare.
Many people at times have an invulnerable skin type. If you’re among the few that fall within this group, you may want more than one touch up. This really is an exceptional situation that may require you to work out a payment program that is specific with your long-term eyebrow tech. After a couple more weeks of continued ointment application, the tattooed eyebrow healing procedure ought to be complete.
What to expect immediately after the eyebrow tattoo treatment?
First, the color of your eyebrows will be considerably darker than what you may expect, but don’t panic as this is completely normal. Over the following four to ten days it will begin to fade and may take up to four to six weeks for the true color to come through. Also don’t be alarmed if the color seems to disappear during the healing process, this is due to layers of skin forming and is only temporary.
After the procedure is complete you may experience a little discomfort around the eyebrow area which can be reduced by applying an ice pack. This will also help with any minor swelling that you may experience.
Eyebrow Tattoo Aftercare
Following your treatment (on the same day), you should also clean the area with a damp cotton wool pad every two hours. Then apply the cream provided. Remember to wash your hands before and after each application and to use a new cotton wool pad to avoid infection.
The day after your treatment and for the next four days, just apply the cream three times a day. Only apply a thin layer of cream to allow the skin to breathe. Keep your hair away from your face in the first two days to avoid infection.
The treated area may experience the following symptoms for two to seven days after the treatment, which is completely normal. These symptoms are flaking, tenderness, dryness and itching, swelling and redness.
Don’t be tempted to remove any scabs by force that may form on the treated area as this may remove the pigment along with the crust.
Things you should avoid for 1-2 weeks
- Soaps, facial cleansers, water on pigmented areas
• Washing pigmented area
• Chlorine pools
• Retin-A on pigmented areas
• Makeup on pigmented area for 5 days, including non-allergenic
• Hot, steamy, long showers
• Sun on pigmented areas
• Jacuzzis or saunas
• Terry towels on pigmented areas
Ideally you should avoid water for at least one week, but that isn’t always possible. So, shower with your back to the water to avoid the water to directly wash the treated part, shampoo and conditioner from getting into the pigmented areas. Make sure you wash your hair with your head tilted backwards to stop water running down your face. Cover the pigmented area with a sufficient amount of the cream provided. If the area does get wet, pat dry very gently with a clean towel or tissue.
