30 mins after procedure: Collect the lymphatic fluid with a clean cotton round every 10 min for 2 hours.
Before Bedtime after procedure:Do a gentle quick wash on your eyebrows.

Give brows 2 mins to air-dry. Apply a thin "rice-grain" size amount of ointment. And that's it for the next 7-10 days.
Other than the quick wash the night of the procedure, NO: water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 10 days
Do NOT let your brows dry out. Apply a THIN LAYER of ointment 3x per day - every 6-8 hours for 10 Days. No more than a rice-grain size of ointment per brow at a time (use a q-tip to apply).
Do NOT pick or scratch brows, instead apply brow ointment for relief if they feel itchy. Its a sign your brows are getting dry.

After the procedure, the area treated will be darker and more intense, this is normal. This will last a few days until the skin heals and peels and naturally exfoliates and the true color emerges.
During the healing process, you may develop dry, or flaky and itchy skin around the treated area. This is completely normal. It is important not to rub, pick or scratch this area. It is also important to note that even with proper aftercare, your brows can result in patches or fading spots. This is also completely normal as your body is trying to recover and reject this foreign object from your face. This is what your 12 week touch up is intended for. To replace any hair stokes lost during your initial healing process. There are a few factors that determine how your body heals such as age, skin type, and lifestyle. However, the typical healing time ranges between 6-8 weeks.
