Looking after your combination brows
Kseniia gives all her clients thorough aftercare advice following their treatment and a complimentary post-treatment aftercare kit to take home.
⠀⠀⠀ Keep the area as dry as possible for 10 days post-treatment – avoid cleaning the area after treatment and if you do have a shower, keep it quick and ensure your brows are kept dry. Kseniia gives all her clients a shower shield in her aftercare kit to keep your brows protected.
⠀ Avoid sweating – when you shower, be quick and use cooler water than usual and keep the bathroom well ventilated. Avoid saunas or swimming, and any activity that may cause you to perspire.
⠀⠀ ⠀Avoid using makeup around your brow area. Take extra care when applying foundation to your forehead as this can slide during wear.
⠀You will notice your brows progressively darken after treatment. This does not reflect the final outcome. Your brows may also look larger than you anticipated. Again, this is completely normal and a result of some residual swelling in the area. The final look will shrink down and look completely natural, once healed.
⠀After a few days, you may notice the pigment beginning to scab and peel. It is extremely important to not pick at the scabs and to let them heal and fall of their own accord. The healing process may feel occasionally itchy, but please do refrain from scratching your beautiful new brows. In your aftercare kit, you will find wipes, cream and applicators to keep your brows at their best and to safely remove any flaking that is ready to drop from your brows.
⠀⠀ ⠀Try and keep your hair away from your brows if possible. If you have a fringe, clip it back and tie long hair away from your face, to avoid strands from catching in your brows.
⠀⠀ ⠀After around 7-10 days, you will find your skin has mostly healed. At this stage, you may notice your brows start to fade – almost like they are about to disappear. Don't worry – again, this is part of the natural healing process. It will take around four weeks before the skin is fully healed and your beautiful new brows will be at their best.
⠀⠀ ⠀At this stage, you may notice some inconsistencies in the pigment – this is completely usual and due to the natural inconsistencies in everyone's skin. This is what your follow up appointment will deal with, by topping up any unevenness and perfecting your beautiful brows.
