Eyebrow Embroidery post-care

If you are like most women in Singapore, you know that having a fuller eyebrow can improve your looks. If you aren’t among the lucky few blessed with a full eyebrow, you may have opted for an eyebrow embroidery procedure.

After the procedure, you are likely going to see some swellings and redness in the area. Don’t fret when this happens, as the redness and swelling will naturally disappear the next day.

To ensure that the result of the procedure lasts as long as possible, there are some practical things you must do days, weeks, and even months after the procedure.

In this article, we are going to be taking a close look at some of them.

What to avoid during the first seven days after the procedure

Do not apply lotion, water, makeup, and soap to the area.

When taking your bath, carefully wash around your eyebrow. Be careful when doing this so that water and soap won’t enter the treated area.

During the first seven days after the procedure, the affected area is going to appear flaked. Do your best to resist the urge to pull off the scabs or scratch the area, as it may result in scarring or an uneven result.

Four days after the treatment, use your hand to apply post-care ointment on the treated area. Make sure you clean your hands before applying the ointment. To ensure that traces of dirt from your hand don’t enter the treated area, use a cotton swab.

Apply the ointment sparingly twice daily (morning and night). Note that over-applying the ointment on the treated area will not speed up the healing process and help you get a better result.

Activities to avoid during the first 14 days after the procedure

  • Swimming
  • Touching the treated area
  • Over drinking alcohol (Alcohol can slow down the healing process)
  • Driving motorcycles, convertibles, boats, and open-air vehicles
  • Picking and scratching your eyebrow
  • Using chemical peels and creams that contain Glycolic acid and Retin-A
  • Exposing your face to direct sunlight (This can cause premature fading)
  • Hot bath
  • Intense household cleaning (Cleaning areas like your basement or garage where there is a lot of dirt and dust)
  • Intense exercise

If the treated area isn’t healing properly, you should visit the center where you got the treatment done.

Contact your doctor if you experience any of the following symptoms days or weeks after the procedure.

  • High body temperature
  • Green, yellow, or red discharge from the procedure site
  • Swelling
  • Intense redness and tenderness of the site
  • Fever

How long will it take for the treated area to heal?

The time it takes for the treated area to heal depends on factors like the regeneration rate of your body and your age. On average, it may take between 4-6 weeks for the procedure site to heal totally.

Can I start applying SPF?

Only apply SPF 30 or SPF 50 when you are sure that the treated area is totally healed.

Final note

Note that it may take up to a month for allthe redness to vanish and for your eyebrow to heal totally. To get the best result, you have to ensure that you follow the post-care instructions discussed in this article to the letter.

If you aren’t satisfiedwith the results, you should ask the technician for a touch-up or adjustment.

What to expect during a therapeutic treatment session in Singapore

Talking to a therapist is one of the best ways to overcome depression, trauma, substance abuse, and even relationship issues.

If it is your first time having a session with a therapist, you will likely be worried or anxious about how the session will turn out and if the therapist will be able to address your issue.

Well, it may surprise you to know that a therapy session is somewhat similar to a doctor’s appointment. So you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

In this article, we will be looking at a few things to expect during your first therapeutic treatment session in Singapore.

Warm welcome

When you get to the therapist’s office, you will be asked to sit in a waiting area until your name is called or it is your turn to see the therapist.

While you are waiting, you may be asked to fill out the following paperwork.

  • Medical history
  • The details of your symptoms
  • Your insurance information
  • Service agreement
  • HIPPA forms
  • Record release form

Note that you have an option to answer the questions orally; if you feel uncomfortable to pen them down on paper.

Your first session

Many people have the notion that their issues will magically disappear after their first session with their therapist. What they don’t know is that the details of their issues may not be discussed during their first visit.

Your therapist’s goal during your first session is to get to know more about you to establish a friendly relationship with you.

On your second visit, your therapist is going to dive into the symptoms or issues you mentioned in your first session with them.

Most therapists will ask you are a series of questions to get a picture of the nature of your issue and to narrow down the best approach to address your problem. Below are some questions you are likely going to be asked during your first session.

  • What are some things you feel are wrong in your life?
  • What are your symptoms?
  • How have you been coping with your issue?
  • What are your expectations? 

You may also be asked questions about your childhood, career, educational background, and your relationships.

After you have answered these questions, your therapist will fill you in on the method he or she is going to employ, the duration of your treatment, and the details of patient confidentiality.

What to ask your therapist during your first visit

At some point during your discussion with your therapist, he or she is going to ask you if you have questions. Feel free to air what is on your mind as clearly as possible. You can also ask questions about the details of your therapy.

Below are some potential questions you can ask.

  • Can you briefly explain what will happen in my sessions?
  • What is the duration of each session?
  • How long will it take to resolve my issue?

Final note

During your first therapeutic treatment for health, it may be difficult for you to tell if your therapist is right for you. But after a few visits, you may be able to know if you are making progress or not.

If you are not sure if you are getting the best care from your therapist, you should ask yourself the following questions.

  • Are they helping me achieve my goals?
  • Do they show compassion?
  • Do they check-in with me regularly?
  • Do they push me out of my comfort zone?
  • Do they help me learn new things?
  • Do they treat me with respect?

If you answered no to any of the above questions, you should consider changing your therapist.
