Use a good sunscreen, sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics
If you are planning a chemical peel, laser procedure or an MRI scan, please inform the technician of your permanent cosmetics

The use of RetinA/Tretinoin or any other rapid skin exfoliation products used regularly on the forehead area will cause the permanent makeup to the eyebrow area to fade prematurely.

The use of chemical peels and acid peels regularly on the forehead region can also cause eyebrow tattoos to fade prematurely.  


         Antacids, thyroid and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either by affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. Remember, everything we eat and drink have their own chemical structure and the electron ends that are unattached or free, may get attached to others compounds inside the body forming a new molecule that may show a different color spectrum. With that info, an educated client may have better expectation and know that she / he may need more frequent adjustments that others. The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks healing for the final results to appear. The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.

Approximate Daily Healing Schedule for Permanent Eyebrows
 * DAY 1-2:
 Your brows are approximately 20-40% darker, bolder and more solid than your healed result. Under the pigment, the skin is red and pigment has been deposited into the layer of skin containing dead skin cells; combined giving the appearance of darker color. There may be minimal swelling but because typically the eyebrow area does not retain much fluid, swelling will be limited. The top layers of skin will begin to shed on about day 3-5, and you will see a loss of color. This is normal. Do not scratch/ pick!

* DAY 3:  Your eyebrows may begin to itch and the pigment may appear somewhat raised. Do not scratch/ pick!

 * DAY 4-6:  The skin is now rapidly exfoliating and will shed evenly if left alone. The color under the exfoliating skin will continue to appear light until the epidermis takes on its more transparent characteristics.

* DAY 30 - 40:  Now is the time to critique your brows, the tattoo has now become apart of the dermis, seen under the epidermis
