First step in the healing procedure: 30 minutes after the treatment gently cleanse your eyebrows using Phi Wipes (you will be given these at your appointment) without stretching the skin. Cleanse the skin up until you find traces of pigment or coloured lymph on the wipes. This means the excess lymph is removed in order to prevent formation of scabbing. Having cleansed the skin, you should apply skin candy cream which will also be given to you at your appointment. During the day this process should be repeated 3-5 times. If the treatment was done in the afternoon and you do not have time to repeat the procedure 3-5 times, before going to bed and after the last rinsing and applying the cream on the eyebrows, it is necessary to cover your brows and sleep with them covered. In the next 6 days, rinsing will no longer be needed, however, applying the cream is necessary 3-5 times daily. The eyebrows must not get wet while washing your face or having a shower. If you have extremely oily skin, the aftercare (rinsing and applying the cream) is only recommended on the first day, while in the following days you should not apply any ointment or cream.
Please avoid the following 7 days after your Phi Brows appointment:
Itching is normal but please do not pick or scratch the area as this can cause the pigments to heal uneven and may even cause infection and scarring.
Creams (except protective ones) and makeup
Direct shower spray
Please avoid the following 30 days after your Phi Brows appointment:
Light (laser) therapy
Chemical peels, fruit acids
Creams that contain regeneration factors.
You should always avoid laser treatments over the treated area during the healing period (Fraxel laser, IPL) because they can destroy the pigment and cause inflammation. Faster fading out of pigment can happen if you use antibiotics or hormonal therapy. Always protect your eyebrows from the sun by using sun protection cream.
