Can I still have laser hair removal treatments after this lip blush procedure?2021-06-24T06:31:12+00:00

What are the after care instructions?2022-06-07T13:37:19+00:00
You will receive customised instructions on the day of your procedure along with important tips. You MUST read and follow the instructions to get the best possible retention.

Right after the procedure:

• Using a clean tissue, gently blot your brows every 10 minutes to remove any excess lymph fluid.
• Ensuring you have clean hands, rinse your brows with water every hour in a gentle, circular motion. Alternatively, wet a cotton pad and gently wipe over your brows. Pat dry with a clean tissue. Repeat this step until you go to sleep.

Day 2 until flaking stage has finished – 2x a day morning and night:

• Blot off any aftercare cream residue using a clean tissue.
• Using a clean cotton tip, gently dab on a small amount (half a rice grain per brow) of the aftercream cream. Note: Using too much cream will over moisturise your brows, which will result in flakes coming off prematurely = poor retention. For clients with oily skin, you may skip applying the aftercare cream as your natural oils will keep the area moisturised.
• Repeat the process above morning and night until the flaking of your eyebrows have naturally finished (usually 1-2 weeks).

Are there any pre-appointment restrictions?2021-06-24T06:23:08+00:00

No. Only the hairs outside of the outline will be removed to ensure a clean and defined mapping of the brow.

Will this effect my hair growth?2021-06-24T06:22:06+00:00

No. This will not affect the hair growth on your eyebrow area as the procedure only requires the artist to use the blade through the first layer of the skin, the epidermis, where as the hair follicle sits two layers below the epidermis.

How long is the healing time?2022-06-07T13:41:08+00:00
Immediately after the procedure and in the first 5 days, your brows will look significantly darker. Don’t worry though, this is not an accurate indication of what it will look like once healed. From days 5-10 your brows may form a scab, which will eventually heal and flake off. Once this happens your brows will be 30-50% lighter.

From the time the scab has flaked off, your skin is still healing from underneath. This is why the complete healing process can take up to 8 weeks.
Is there any downtime?2021-06-24T06:21:05+00:00

No, there is no downtime required for this procedure. However, you will need to have access to running water every hour for 4 hours to wash off any excess lymph from your brows.

No. If eyelash extensions are properly applied, they should not hurt neither during the application or after.

Can I get my eyelash extensions wet?2021-06-24T06:15:22+00:00

Yes, you definitely can, especially because you need to cleanse your lashes for maximum retention. The adhesive used is waterproof, however please keep in mind that the heat and steam from showering, spas and saunas can make the glue particles break down quicker. This may result in your lash extensions falling out faster than usual.

Can you do an infill over somebody else’s work?2021-06-24T06:14:48+00:00

Usually no. Why? This is often due to the difference of quality of lash extensions and technique used. If you believe the other person’s work is of good quality, please feel free to contact me for a consultation.

Lash extensions should not damage your natural lashes. As long as the applied extension is of the right length, weight and thickness, your natural lashes will continue to grow normally.
