Pre Procedure Advice

  • PMU procedure normally requires multiple treatment sessions. For best results clients will be required to return for at least one retouch appointment. This will take place 4 -6 weeks after the initial procedure. Those with oily skin may require an additional touch up. Please be aware that color intensity will be significantly darker and sharper immediately and a few days after the initial procedure but the color will reduce by 30-50%. 
     

  • Although numbing cream is used during the procedure sensitivity or discomfort may still be felt. Skin may be red and/or swollen after the procedure. 
     

  • Please wear your normal make up on the day of your procedure. 
     

  • Please DO NOT drink alcohol 24 hours prior to the treatment. 
     

  • Where possible try to avoid the following herbs and spices prior to your appointment: Black pepper Cardamom any member of the Zingiberaceae (Ginger) family Cayenne Cinnamon Garlic Horseradish Mustard. 
     

  • Please DO NOT shape or wax your brows before the procedure. Your technician will shape brows during the procedure. 
     

  • Botox AHA products and retinoids should be avoided for 2 weeks prior to the procedure. 
     

  • Exfoliating treatments such as microdermabrasion should not be performed within 2 weeks prior to procedure. 
     

  • Chemical and laser peels should be avoided no less than 6 weeks prior to procedure. 
     

  • Patients prone to cold sores/fever blisters should take an antiviral prior to treatment.

Post Procedure Advice

Please follow these instructions for 10-14 days after the procedure to improve and prolong the results. If you don’t follow these instructions, it could greatly affect your PMU results.

  • Avoid getting anything on the brows including water except for cleansing as directed. You may blot for the first few hours with sterile gauze to remove any excess fluids if necessary. 
     

  • Cleansing: In 2-3 hours wash lightly with slightly damp Q-tips and antibacterial or green soap (non-scented orange Dial soap is a great option). Repeat this very gently during days 1-4. When washing it should be very gentle and with hardly any water. Do not attempt to remove the barrier film if it was applied. Allow it to come off naturally in its own time. Please avoid saturating brows with water. After the initial 3 days of washing you may very sparingly apply balm to hydrate your brow area for dryness relief. 
     

  • Do not pick scratch or rub the brows. The flakes must fall off on their own or you will risk removing the colour and possibly scarring. You may tap them to alleviate any itch. 
     

  • Do not soak the treated area in the bath pool or hot tub. For 30 days refrain from swimming in salt water or chlorinated pools saunas hot yoga steam rooms or sun beds. 
     

  • No exercise for 14 days. After 14 days – when exercising wear a sweatband to avoid sweat on brow area. 
     

  • Do not expose treated area to direct sunlight. After healed (30 days) use a sunscreen to avoid fading from the sun. 
     

  • No makeup should be applied directly on the brows during the healing process. 
     

  • If your eyebrows get wet during the healing process pat them dry with a towel DO NOT RUB. 
     

  • Avoid using daily skincare products directly on the eyebrows. 
     

  • If you are planning a chemical peel or any other medical procedure please inform therapist of the procedure you have had. Procedure should only be done once the healing process is complete. 
     

  • If you are due to give blood after the procedure please inform your nurse about the PMU treatment you have had as this might alter the results.

Topical Anaesthetic Advice

Allergic reactions can occur from any anaesthetics used during the procedure. If you do suffer from an allergic reaction, you should contact your doctor immediately. Allergic reaction response may show through redness, swelling, rash, blistering, dryness or any other symptoms associated with an allergic reaction.
Numbness – We cannot accept responsibility if the area to be treated does not respond to the numbing cream. Each individual is different according to skin type. Some clients report the area to be completely numb, while others may experience some discomfort.
Procedure – For PMU, a numbing cream/gel is used. The products are formulated to be perfectly safe and can be purchased over the counter from any pharmacy/chemist. The anaesthetic is placed over the treatment area for 20-30 minutes then carefully removed prior to treatment. As a result of the treatment, combined with the use of the anaesthetic, you can expect to experience some redness/swelling that can last 1-4 days. You should always follow your post procedure advice and after care for the best results.
