After Care for Eyebrow Embroidery

Updated: Aug 15, 2020

Aftercare is critical, and it is one of the essential factors for a successful treatment. The rest of the factor includes skin quality, post-treatment flow & exposure to different external factors. All of these factors are out of the artist’s control, so any possibility to provide guarantees for the treatment is not possible.

Heavy alcohol use can slow healing and increase the risk of infection and complications after treatment. Smoking can also delay healing after treatment.
