Seeing your eyebrows after getting them embroidered may take a little bit of getting used to at first. You may feel self-conscious that your eyebrows are looking darker than usual and may even wonder if you’ve made the right decision. Trust us, you have! If you need more reminders, check out our earlier blog post on why guys should get their brows embroidered.
Anyway, if you’ve just completed your first eyebrow embroidery procedure, it’s important to look after the skin surrounding your eyebrows. Following these after-care instructions below will ensure that your skin heals properly after the procedure, giving you the best brow results and longevity possible.
What to expect after your first eyebrow embroidery procedure
First and foremost, you should be aware of the following:
1. It’s typical for the pigment (in your brows) to seem blacker just after the eyebrow embroidery.
2. After the eyebrow embroidery procedure, the skin around your brows may become slightly red (depending on your skin sensitivity). This is also quite typical.
3. It’s possible that your brows could stay darker for a few days longer, and some scabbing will appear. As the scar heals, the colour of the brows will lighten naturally.
4. After the eyebrow embroidery, there is no need for recovery time. Your eyebrows will heal in 7-14 days, and the colour takes about a month to properly set.
When you have understood what is to be expected following an eyebrow embroidery procedure, you’ll need to know what steps you may take to guarantee that your skin and brows heal properly.
How to maintain your eyebrow embroidery for longer
Following your brow embroidery session, here are some tips to keep in mind:
1. It’s best not to get the eyebrow region wet if possible. For the first few days, keep them as dry as possible.
2. For at least one week, refrain from visiting a sauna, swimming, or sun tanning.
3. For at least 5-7 days, apply a little coating of healing cream to your brows twice a day.
4. For at least two weeks, avoid applying any cosmetics or skin care products on your brows, as the embroidered area is still an open wound that can still get easily infected.
5. As the region around your brow heals, it will become slightly itchy, and mild scabbing will emerge. Refrain from picking or peeling the scabs no matter how itchy they get.
Basically, the newly embroidered areas will require special TLC (tender loving care) for the first week or so. Following that, your skin will feel less sensitive and you will also get used to your new look! Luck and wealth, too, will start growing as your Feng Shui is enhanced by your neat-looking brows.
While how fast your eyebrows heal differs from person to person (because of factors such as skin type and skin sensitivity), following the above recommendations will help you achieve the best outcome and make your eyebrow embroidery last longer. Remember to return for a touch-up session after 4 – 6 weeks so that pigment colour and brow thickness can be retouched, and more strokes can be added. We ensure that your eyebrows are also embroidered with natural strokes that will compliment your facial features and at the same time, improve your relationship with people around you for better Feng Shui.
