Day 1 (Day of treatment):2-3 hours after treatment, gently clean the area with a very small amount of sterile water on a cotton pad, just barely damp, NOT wet. Do this 2 to 4 times today to avoid build-up of blood/lymph on the area.
Day 2 & 3:When you wake up, gently wipe the area with a small amount of sterile water on a cotton pad. Be extra careful not to rub the brows hard, tug or scrub the brows.
Do this 2 to 4 more times today to avoid any build-up of blood/lymph.
Using a cotton swab, you may apply a very small amount of Ointment to brows (very small amount-like half the size of a grain of rice for both brows). This is just to add a small amount of moisture – brows should not appear greasy, glossy or shiny, if they do, you used too much. Do not use aggressive movement/manipulation of the skin- be gentle. Make sure your hands are clean before touching your brows.
Day 4-14: Gently clean the brow area with a damp cotton pad, you may use a drop or 2 of alcohol-free witch hazel (added to the damp pad) to clean the brows 2-4 times a day. If your brows feel tight or dry, you may apply an extremely thin layer of Ointment after cleansing (brows should not be greasy, glossy, or shiny – if so, you used too much).
