Not following the aftercare instructions will affect your healed results.

Permanent makeup is a two-step procedure, the initial procedure and the following touch-up 6 to 8 weeks after. A yearly touch-up is recommended.

Long Term Care:

- Use a good sunscreen after 10 days. Wear sunglasses outdoors. Sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics.

- If you are planning a chemical peel, laser procedure, or MRI scan, please inform the technician/physician of your permanent cosmetics.

- The use of RetinA/Tretinoin, chemical peels and acid peels, or any other rapid skin exfoliation products used on the forehead area will cause the permanent makeup of the eyebrow area to fade prematurely.

- If you are planning a chemical peel, laser procedure, or MRI scan, please inform the technician/physician of your permanent cosmetics.
