Precare

Aftercare

It is normal for the treated areas to appear darker, larger, and more saturated up to 7 days following your session. Do not pick at or aggressively rub your permanent makeup. Doing so can result in less than desirable results such as loss of pigment, scar tissue, or infection. Avoid tanning of any kind, swimming, saunas, sweating, or exfoliating for 10 days following your service. This is essentially considered an open wound. Please follow and take seriously the aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and lessen the risk of infection. Please do not use anything on your permanent makeup that was not provided or approved by your technician during the healing process. Please note: These services are considered tattoos so although numbing is applied throughout each service, discomfort/tenderness, redness, swelling, and sensitivity is a normal part of healing. 

EYEBROWS 

Wait 6 hours to allow the wound to close, lock in pigment and let tissue repair naturally initiate. Then, lightly dampen a cotton round or pad with lukewarm water and pat brows. You should do this the night of, the next morning and the second evening. After lightly washing, pat dry your brows with a clean tissue to prevent build-up of bacteria which can cause infection. After washing the first three times, you should avoid wetting brows in excess. That means  you should stay away from the beach, pool, lakes, rivers...etc. When washing your face or hair, you should avoid getting a lot of water on your brows. Water may trickle on your brows, and that is ok, but you should pat dry once you finish washing your face and/or hair.

 

OPTIONAL: Apply a thin layer (size of a grain) of post-care ointment to the treated area only if needed - If brows become too itchy or too dry during the healing process. If you need to apply the balm, you should only leave it on for a few hours then blot it off. 

LIPS 

Use a q-tip to apply a thin layer of the provided aftercare to your lips. Reapply several times daily. It is essential to keep your lips well hydrated during the healing process. Wash twice a day with antibacterial soap and lukewarm water. Gently pat dry with a paper towel, and reapply aftercare balm. Swelling, bruising, discomfort/tenderness, bleeding, and pain are normal reactions to the service. Please keep lips hydrated with provided balm or Aquaphor. Allowing lips to dry out will result in extreme loss of pigmentation and undesired results. Applying a cold compress or ice wrapped in a small towel or paper towel as needed can help.​

EYELINER 

Cleanse treatment area with antibacterial soap and rinse well with lukewarm water twice a day. Always pat dry with a towel or paper towel. Use a q-tip to apply a thin layer of the provided aftercare balm after every cleanse. Keep area well hydrated. Light flaking or patchiness is to be expected within the first week.

Extreme redness, soreness/tenderness, bruising, swelling, heavy lids, discomfort/irritation, pain, light sensitivity, possibly bloodshot eyes​, and/or seepage/tearing are all normal reactions to the service. It’s advisable to sleep in an elevated position to help reduce swelling at night.

Day 1: Eyes will be swollen and perhaps a bit ‘crusty’ upon waking. The swelling will reduce after being in an upright position and from blinking and increased circulation to the area. Avoid heavy lifting, physical exertion, and crying.​ It usually subsides within 24 hours but can take up to 1-3 days as every person experiences different healing. Please do not wear contacts until discomfort has minimized. Please keep treatment area hydrated with a rice grain size of provided balm or Aquaphor​. Applying a cold compress or ice wrapped in a small towel or paper towel as needed can help.

AVOID WITHIN FIRST 10 DAYS

  • Increased sweating or intense physical activities. Salt is a natural saline solution that pushes the pigment out and lessens the retention

  • Swimming

  • Sauna/jacuzzi/tanning

  • Laser or chemical treatments/peels

  • Retin-A or Glycolic Acid

  • Heavy cleaning with dust or debris

  • Spicy foods

  • Smoking/Alcohol (slows down healing)

  • Driving in open air vehicles (convertibles, boats, bikes, motorcycles)

  • Excessively touching treated area other than to clean or apply balm

  • Do NOT apply ANY MAKEUP on or around treated area

MORE TIPS

  • Do not take long or super hot showers within the first 10 days. It can cause perspiration and push the pigment out.

  • Do not scratch or pick the treated area when it starts to itch or become patchy while healing. Pat instead. This will avoid scarring and pigment loss.

  • Do not pick at the area during peeling stage. It is part of the natural healing process. Your permanent makeup will appear softer and greyer until the color clarifies. Your new permanent makeup will go through several phases during the healing cycle.

  • It is normal for clients to lose original hair strokes or pigmentation. Everyone’s skin is different! It is absolutely normal and possible to heal unevenly. This is why a touch up session is required to add more strokes or pigmentation and perfect the shape if needed.

  • Keep your face away from the shower head while healing.

  • No makeup on treated area until peeling is finished. No exceptions.

  • Avoid sleeping positions that will rub your treated area while healing. Try sleeping on your side or wearing a silk or satin face mask to avoid friction

  • Cover your brows or treated area with a hat if you’re in the sun. The sun will cause the area to fade, resulting in an undesired color. Always wear sunscreen on the treated area after they heal if you aren’t wearing makeup.

  • For lips, avoid kissing for the first 7 days
