AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Your permanent makeup may look distorted and/or darker when initially applied! This is very normal, you will have a peeling phase for 1-2 days where the scab falls. This is normal, once scab has fallen your permanent makeup may look very light or barely there. This is normal, the color will darken up over the next few day and the shape/color will arise to surface. Your permanent makeup may feel dry and itchy for up to 4 weeks. This is normal.

Apply aquaphore with clean qtip 3-5 times a day. You do not need to suffocate the brow just use a rice sized layer of aquaphore. Continue this for the next 7-10 days. Do not pick, scratch or pull at the brow. Avoid sun exposure to the brow. Avoid large bodies of water or direct water pressure to the eyebrow area for the next 7-10 days.

Eyes may be swollen, itchy and tender for a few days. This is normal. Use an ice pack protected with a wet barrier of a paper towel. Please do not ice for more than 10 minutes a sitting. Icing is most effective the first 24 hours. Sleeping slightly elevated can also reduce any residual swelling of the eyes.

You may soil your pillowcase with some residual pigment from eyes, so think about using an old, clean case. In the morning if eyes are stuck together, use a wet Q-tip to gently separate. Do not rub, pick or peel. Keep the area clean and use only the aftercare given for 3 to 4 days. Apply once in the am and once in the pm. Use a fresh Q-tip for every application and do not let the eyeliner become dry in the first 72 hours.

Avoid sun, any bodies of water and direct water pressure and all creams around eye area. If ointment is a problem please do not use or rinse with eyewash but seek medical attention for an antibiotic steroid eye drop. Please use a new tube of mascara after each procedure. Do not wear makeup for 72 hours post.

Lips will feel very dry and swollen after. Apply aquaphore/shea butter on lips 2-3 times a day. Do not rub into skin just tap using a Q-tip. This should be done for about 7-10 days post treatment. Do not allow lips to become dry. This may interfere with healed color. Always use a clean Q-tip It is advised to sleep on an old pillowcase. There will be residual pigment coming off the lips for several days, which could stain.After lips are no longer tender to the touch they may become flaky. This is normal and is expected. Please do not pick or scratch at them. This may significantly reduce the amount of pigment uptake. Avoid the sun and tanning beds pre and post procedure. Be sure to use sun block once lips are healed. Avoid direct water pressure, pools and other bodies of water, until healed. Please be advised it is a good idea to brush your teeth with just water for three days after treatment. You can resume wearing lipstick once lips are healed. It is advised to use new lipstick after all lip treatments. Redness, swelling, tenderness, dryness are all common post treatment side effects and will dissipate in a short period of time. Avoid oily, salty, acidic foods and alcohol while healing.

Lips especially are very unpredictable. Some clients will have a very strong uptake in healed color and others a very slight uptake.

Fever Blisters are a known side effect of all lip procedures. Follow all before instructions and it is less likely to become an issue.

One more thing to add to before your appointment section- under the all procedures:

  • Avoid sun or tanning 7 days pre-appointment.
  • *FIRST 3 DAYS FOLLOWING PROCEDURE- Before showering : Always make sure your hands are very clean when touching around your breasts. For the first few days, use a cotton swab, gently cover areolas with a very thin coat of ointment, using grape seed oil or aquaphor. * When showering , Keep your back to the shower spray , do not let hot water spray directly on to your tattooed breasts (using your hands no cloth) with mild soap such as cetaphil, baby shampoo or dial antimicrobial soap. DO NOT USE ANYTHING ASTRINGENT. Continue to rinse until all surface blood, ointment and soap have been removed.
    *DRY around the tattoo by blotting very gently with a white paper towel. continue to air dry for 15 to 30 minutes ( or use a hair dryer on a low or cool setting) until tattoo is dry (tattoo will feel taut or tight when it is thoroughly dry)
    2. APPLY After inked ointment in a thin, (grain of rice to a small pea amount) light coat by gently spreading it onto the areola with a cotton swab TWICE A DAY. Cover with foam dressing or equate ultra absorbent wound dressing pads.
    * VERY IMPORTANT: Tattoo should feel moistened but not heavily coated. Use the ointment provided. If the ointment burns or hurts in any way , stop using it immediately and call technician.
    3. All tattoos weep body fluids and it is important to blot these fluids off periodically. The foam dressings and wound dressings will help wick the moisture from the tattoo, twice a day, use the gauze pads or white paper towel dampened with an antiseptic wash (Band- Aid brand hurt-free antiseptic wash) to blot the areolas. Be careful not to use allot if pressure.
    * REBANDAGE with non-stick pads whenever you have to wear clothing over your tattoo (such as bra) Avoid tight clothing if possible.
    NOTE: IF AT ANYTIME THE NON-STICK BANDAGE APPEARS TO STICK TO THE AREOLA , !DO NOT! CONTINUE TO REMOVE! !WAIT! UNTIL YOU CANGET IN THE SHOWER , SOAKING THE PADS UNTIL THEY FALL OFF ON THEIR OWN. OTHERWISE THE PIGMENT CAN BE PULLED RIGHT OUT.
    * VERY IMPORTANT : WHILE YOUR TATTOO IS COVERED IT IS HEALING AT A MUCH SLOWER RATE, SO WHENEVER POSSIBLE, EXPOSE THE TATTOO TO THE AIR OR COVER WITH A LOOSE FITTING CLOTHING LIKE A LARGE WHITE T-SHIRT WITH NO OINTMENT.
    4. At night wear a large, loose fitting white cotton T-shirt with no pads or ointments, allowing air to get to your areolas.
    5. After day 7, let your breasts dry out to continue healing on their own. No more ointments. Still gently blot them with a paper towel periodically if you notice they still appear to be weeping. Let them completely dry heal now.
    *DAY 3 AFTERCARE OPTION: Only if your skin is NOT sesitive to adhesives, you may consider using tagaderm or saniderm waterproof transparent wound dressing.
    *Shower and thoroughly clean and completely dry breast. *Cut a piece of film large enough to allow at least an inch around the areola.
    *Apply a thin coat of after inked ointment on the areola.
    *Then apply the film directly over your areola, pressing out any air bubbles and making sure edges are sealed , not allowing water to build up against your tattoos. You can shower normally, no need for pads. Some fluid may build up and puddle under the film and that is normal. We just dont want excessive amounts of fluid. Be prepared, it will feel removing a band-aid. Let your breasts continue to dry heal.
