Women with scanty eyebrows and those without a good eyebrow shape are increasingly opting for a permanent eyebrow solution with the help of micropigmentation. The procedure is quite effective and requires less time. The technique includes the use of needles to achieve the desired result similar to that of tattooing. The needles are used to deposit color pigments into the skin in the eyebrow region to give you thicker, darker, and shapely appearance to the eyebrow.
In order to achieve the perfect look you need to carry out the aftercare of the permanent eyebrows procedure as part of the entire process. This will prevent any chances of infection and also help retain your pigmentation colors.
Some aftercare tips
The micropigmentation procedure for permanent eyebrows makes use of needles to insert the tiny particles of ink and so there is naturally some amount of pain, discomfort, and swelling involved. Here are some of the preventive measures you need to take to ensure you have a comfortable and infection free recovery.
- Instead of applying ice directly onto the eyebrow area, use a cold compress or a cold towel instead. Gel compresses, hand towels and wet tea bags work best. This will relieve pain and also help reduce swelling.
- For 10 to 12 days after the permanent eyebrows procedure, avoid rubbing the area around the eyebrow with a towel after washing up.
- Avoid rubbing and scratching the eyebrows. Also avoid waxing or tweezing your eyebrows.
- If you experience any itching in the area, use a non-comedogenic gel or eye cream that will help relieve the itching.
- Keep the skin around the treated area free from dirt. Do not use harsh soaps to wash up. Use baby oil or topical vitamin E to keep the area lubricated.
- Do not swim in chlorinated water for up to 3 weeks after the procedure.
- Do not apply makeup over the treated area for until 3 to 4 weeks after the procedure. Beauty products containing retinol, hyaluronic acids, hydroxyl acids and beta hydroxyl acids can remove the outer layer of the skin. The eyebrow pigment can also be removed due to this.
- In case you notice any sign of infection like yellow discharge coupled with blisters, consult your doctor without further delay.
- Use an approved sunscreen with SPF to prevent the colors from fading.
When you make sure the aftercare instructions are carefully followed, you can resume your regular activities like makeup application, swimming, and others as soon as a month after the treatment. This will ensure your pigmentation colors last for a long time and avoid further discomfort from possible infections.
