TAbout Semi Permanent Eyebrows Aftercare
Are you considering a semi permanent eyebrow treatment, but are worried about the aftercare? Don’t be. The aftercare for semi permanent makeup eyebrows is straightforward and easy to fit into your daily routine.
TFollowing any beauty treatment or procedure, it’s highly recommended that you follow the aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible results. And semi permanent makeup eyebrows are no different.
TWhat to expect immediately after the semi permanent eyebrow treatment
Firstly, the depth of colour of your eyebrows will be considerably darker than you may expect, but don’t panic as this is completely normal. Over the following four to ten days it will begin to fade and may take up to four to six weeks for the true colour to come through. Also don’t be alarmed if the colour seems to disappear during the healing process, this is due to layers of skin forming and is only temporary.
TAfter the procedure is complete you may experience a little discomfort around the eyebrow area which can be reduced by applying an ice pack. This will also help with any minor swelling that you may experience.
THow to care for your semi permanent eyebrows immediately after treatment
Following your treatment (on the same day), you should also clean the area with a damp cotton wool pad every two hours. Then apply the cream provided. Remember to wash your hands before and after each application and to use a new cotton wool pad to avoid infection.
TOngoing aftercare for semi permanent makeup eyebrows
The day after your treatment and for the next four days, just apply the cream three times a day. Only apply a thin layer of cream to allow the skin to breathe.
TKeep your hair away from your face in the first two days to avoid infection.
TThe treated area may experience the following symptoms for two to seven days after the treatment, which is completely normal:
• Dryness and itching
TDon’t be tempted to remove any scabs by force that may form on the treated area as this may remove the pigment along with the crust.
TThings you should avoid for 1-2 weeks:
• Soaps, facial cleansers, water on pigmented areas
• Washing pigmented area
• Chlorine pools
• Retin-A on pigmented areas
• Makeup on pigmented area for 5 days, including non-allergenic
• Hot, steamy, long showers
• Sun on pigmented areas
• Jacuzzis or saunas
• Terry towels on pigmented areas
TIdeally you should avoid water for at least one week, but that isn’t always possible. So, shower with your back to the water to avoid water, shampoo and conditioner from getting into the pigmented areas. Make sure you wash your hair with your head tilted backwards to stop water running down you face. Cover the pigmented area with a sufficient amount of the cream provided. If the area does get wet, pat dry very gently with a clean towel or tissue.
How to care for your semi permanent eyebrows long term

Introduction to Semi Permanent Make Up
Semi-Permanent Cosmetics, also known as Permanent Make-up, Derma Graphics or Cosmetic Tattooing, is a cutting edge aesthetic treatment for men and women which employs the latest techniques to achieve lasting colour or definition.
What can be achieved with Semi Permanent Make Up?
The treatment which is technically known as Micro-pigmentation, is a process of pigment implantation which produces flawless makeup for eyebrows, lashes, lips or the eye-line that will last between 1 and 3 years.
Well filled out eyebrows and a perfectly drawn eye-liner can take years off of the face and semi permanent makeup doesn’t carry the risks associated with invasive cosmetic surgery.
For many people this new revolutionary treatment can also be used to camouflage scars after surgery.
Most treatments start with a consultation and colour analysis to discover what the best makeup look for each individual is. Pharmaceutical grade pigments will then be custom mixed to suit their colouring. An airbrush type gun is used to add pigments to the top layer of the skin (the dermal layer) and often a numbing cream will be applied to the area before this happens. For the first couple of days the pigment may appear darker than it will eventually look. The surrounding area may also be slightly red but scabbing is infrequent. A retouch might be scheduled for a few weeks time to achieve a perfect result.
