Factors Influencing Cosmetic Brow Tattoo Healing
Individual Variation in Healing Processes
Cosmetic Brow tattoo aftercare is not a fixed outline of perfect healing because the skin is a living organ that can react differently based on various factors. While specific aftercare instructions are provided to promote optimal healing, it's important to understand that individual healing processes can vary.
Impact of Skin's Natural Processes and External Factors
Factors such as the client's skin type, overall health, lifestyle, and adherence to aftercare instructions can influence the outcome of your brow tattoo. Some clients may experience faster healing and better retention of pigment, while others may take longer or have different results.
The skin's natural regenerative processes, including cell turnover and pigment retention, can be affected by factors such as sun exposure, skincare products, genetics, and individual body chemistry. These variables can impact how the pigment settles and how long the results last.
Therefore, while proper aftercare is essential for successful healing, the outcome can still vary due to the uniqueness of each individual's skin and their specific circumstances. It's important for clients to manage their expectations and understand that perfect healing cannot be guaranteed due to these inherent variables.
While I will provide a general outline here, please note that on the day of your procedure, I will create a personalized aftercare plan tailored specifically for you and your brows.
Don´t touch your brows! I will apply a special sealant on your brows to protect them and keep them hydrated. If needed- gently pat the treated area dry with a clean tissue to absorb excess lymphatic fluid. -That's it.
Clean with sterile water or antibacterial soap by dabbing with cotton or gauze, once a day or as needed. Do this daily.
(clean the area well making sure that there are no soap residue by dabbing with a damp cotton or gauze using sterile water)
Next apply a small dose of any ointment of your choice, (Vitamin A & D, Coconut oil , Aquaphor, etc) spread it over the treated area.
Only use ointment as needed! Do not overdo it, it would not allow your skin to breathe and it would delay the healing process. The exact amount would be that which is barely noticeable on the skin. Never apply the ointment to a wet tattoo.
Note: If you have oily skin. Skip the ointment!!!
During this process do not use any facial cleansing product that contains acids (glycolic, lactic or AHA) and no facial scrub.
In addition to these two essential points, here are some extra tips for good healing:
o Use clean towels on your pillow cases (as you can stain your pillows)
o Don't touch the scabs on your skin, let them fall off on their own. Scratching or rubbing the treated area can cause scarring or pigment loss.
o Avoid facials, Botox, chemical or microdermabrasion treatments during the first month.
o Avoid exercise that causes excessive sweating - 7 days.
o Showers with a lot of steam and very hot water. 7 days
o Sleeping on your stomach. 7 days
o Swimming (beach, pool, lake ...) and jacuzzis.14 days
o Non-specific cosmetics, including sunscreen. 14 days
Avoid Direct sun or tanning booths - 14 days
o But above all: don't rub the treated area!
Important information about the shower: Limit your daily shower to 5 minutes and try not to create too much steam. While you lather your body, try not to get your face wet. I recommend washing your hair at the end of the shower and, when you rinse it, avoid wetting the treated area as much as possible.
This aftercare routine is very easy to follow and will ensure you better results.
