AFTERCARE TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

 

Do Not rub, pick, scratch, or peel the skin or the pigment at any time during the healing process.

Strictly use only the provided aftercare ointment

 

After your permanent cosmetics procedure, slight redness and irritation of the area should be expected. Depending on your skin sensitivity, swelling of the area may persist. This can be remedied by applying a clean ice pack or bag of ice over the area in 10-minute intervals. Keep the area clean, free from dirt and oil.

Wash your hands with an antibacterial soap before tending to the area.

 

  • For Eyebrows:

Post-care is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new permanent makeup. 

Apply a thin layer of aftercare ointment.

Pat dry the area after each time your shower or wash your face to remove any possible water on the area or excess of ointment.

It is obligatory to apply the thinnest possible layer of the ointment 3 to 5 times within the following seven days.

Do not let any water, lotion, or makeup touch your eyebrow area during 7 days after your procedure.

Make sure your hands are completely clean and gently apply the post-care ointment with a cotton swab. 

Be sure to use the ointment sparingly as your skin needs to heal itself.  

 

  • For eyes and Lips:

Wash the area, twice a day, with cool water and a mild, fragrance-free soap. 

Do not use an exfoliator or any acid base product. 

Gently pat the area dry with a clean paper towel, and apply a very thin layer of after care ointment. Reapply the after care ointment 3-4 times throughout the day, maintaining a thin, moist barrier protecting the area at all times. 

Repeat this for 5-7 days following the procedure.

Applying an excess amount of after care ointment may cause an infection.

 

To prevent infection: Use Bacitracin. If discharge emits from the area, wipe it off with sterilized cotton, clean and dry it, and then reapply antibiotic.  “DO NOT” use antibiotic ointment if there is not infection on the area. Antibiotic will ruin the pigment on the skin.

 

Do Not apply any healing agents to the area, as they may strip the applied pigment. 

If scaring or peeling occurs, do not pick or peel the scab.

Do Not apply makeup directly on top of the treated area for at least two weeks.

If you wear makeup around the area, remove it with water, a mild, fragrance-free soap or petroleum jelly. Avoid makeup removers and harsh cleansers. 

Keep your fingers and hair away from the pigmented area. 

Do not drink excessive amounts of water before bedtime, which may cause additional swelling.

Avoid eating salty foods. 

Do not peel protective scab that forms on healing area or perform activities that will cause excessive sweating, which may cause scab to leave a scar.  

Avoid outdoor gardening.

Avoid contact with soil and animals.

Stay away from excessive steam and heat (e.g., steam baths, facials) and heat (e.g., sun, hot liquids).

What to expect

 

After the first application, your permanent makeup will fade. A touch up needs to be performed between 6 to 12 weeks for Only $100.00. If the touch up is performed too soon there is a greater risk for scarring, and the skin will be more sensitive. If the touch up is after the 12 weeks an extra charge will be applied.

 

  • Swelling

Your skin’s reaction will depend on how sensitive your skin is and on your health condition. A good indication of how your skin will react to permanent makeup is to compare it with what your skin normally looks like after you receive a shot, a bug bite, a hit or cut, or have a skin irritation. Water retention or salt intake on the day of or the day before the procedure also may affect how much swelling you have. 

 

  • Excessive Swelling

Although rare, excessive swelling or an allergic reaction may occur. If excessive swellingoccurs, you should consult your doctor. If an allergic reaction causes difficulty in breathing and/or swallowing, call 911 or go to the emergency room immediately!  **Do not discard these Aftercare Treatment Instructions until after the area has completely healed.*

 

  • After an eyeliner procedure

Immediately following your procedure and for the first few days, the liner will appear very dark and prominent. The area will begin to peel lightly in about 3-6 days. After the area peels, the liner will appear light or faded. This is due to excess pigment peeling off leaving behind a layer of new granular skin cells over the pigment. The color will reappear in about 2-3 weeks as it heals. Depending on the skin sensitivity, we may not be able to make the liner as thick s you desire in the first sitting. All adjustments will be made during the touch up procedure.  Eyelid may be puffy or have a “roll” where the needle was used, similar to what you have after a good cry.  

 

  • After an eyebrow procedure

Immediately following your procedure and for the first few days you will feel very tight and have a heavy feeling or a slight headache, the strokes will appear very dark and prominent. The area will begin to peel lightly in about 3-6 days. After the area peels, the strokes will appear light or faded. This is due to excess pigment peeling off and leaving behind a layer of new granular skin cells over the pigment. The color will reappear in about 2-3 weeks as it heals. Eyebrows are never perfectly symmetrical; however, color and shape adjustments can be made during the touch up procedure. 

 

  • Lip Enhancement

Immediately following your procedure and for the first few days, the lips will appear very dark and prominent. The area will begin to peel lightly in about 3-6 days. After the area peels, the lips will appear light or faded. This is due to excess pigment peeling off and leaving behind a layer of new granular skin cells over the pigment. the color will reappear in about 2-3 weeks as it heals. Lip lines are never perfectly symmetrical, however, color and shape adjustments can be made during the touch up procedure.

 

Healing

It is normal for approximately 25%-50% of the pigment to slough off during the first 10-20 days of the healing process. Although the area will appear to be healed, it will not be fully healed for 4-6 weeks. Continue to use aftercare products until you are completely healed.  

 

 

Lighter color pigments tend to fade sooner than darker pigments. Permanent cosmetics are applied to the face, which is naturally exposed to sunlight all year round. Sunlight will face the pigment, and direct sunlight will fade the pigment more rapidly.

Therefore, a touch up procedure is recommended 2 to 4 years after the preliminary procedure.
