After The Procedure

Care

EYEBROWS

Your permanent cosmetic procedure was performed using a sterile single-use needle and high quality pigments. The end result of your procedure depends greatly on following this aftercare protocol. Please follow the instructions below unless otherwise instructed by a physician.

Immediately after the procedure your eyebrows will appear to be too dark, too thick and will have an unnatural appearance. Relax! And don’t worry, within one to two weeks the color will fade and they will become more natural looking. It is only after healing is complete that you will be able to fully appreciate your new eyebrows. At that time you may even think they are too light, if that is the case we will correct it during your “touch-up” session. On average you will lose 20% to 40% of the initial color.

Brows may oxidize and actually get slightly darker before the color softens in the healing process. Don’t worry, this is normal, they will lighten!

Apply the aftercare ointment two to three times a day for 7 to 10 days, do not let your brows get dry & crusty. It is absolutely imperative that you do not let the brow area dry out as this will create dryness and scabbing, resulting in the loss of color and shading. It is best to apply the ointment approximately 3-4 times a day for 7 to 10 days. Always use a fresh Q-tip with each application of ointment; this will reduce the risk of a secondary infection. Be sure to put ointment on right before you go to bed at night, first thing when you wake up in the morning and one to two more times during the day. Itching is also common but do not rub your eyebrow area or pick at it if it starts to peel and flake, if you notice a little lifting of color, apply ointment again and let it fall off
naturally.

Some swelling, redness, tenderness and itching is normal and is to be expected. Keep clean and avoid tanning beds, sun, pools, hot tubs, any bodies of water, direct water pressure and all creams around the for brow two weeks. Do not pick or rub the area.

Do not wear any makeup for at least 5 days on or around your brow area.

Do not use Retin A, Retinol A, Renova or products that contain AHA’s, or similar lightening products on the procedure area (Glycolic, Lactic Acids etc). These products will fade your pigment color prematurely.

Always wear a powerful sunscreen when in the sun, use a SPF30 or higher, on your brows. Hair strokes and lighter colors will fade faster than a solid brow fill. Fading is also dependent on your aftercare, your skin’s age and its ability to retain color. Although it is permanent, your color will fade over time. You must do your part to ensure long lasting results by proper follow up and care.

VERY IMPORTANT REMINDER - the most important thing to remember is to constantly keep the ointment on your brows for at least 5 days, you WILL lose a lot of your color if you don’t do this!

LIPS

Your permanent cosmetic procedure was performed using a sterile single-use needle and high quality pigments. The end result of your procedure depends greatly on following this aftercare protocol. If you allow your lips to dry out during the first two weeks you stand the chance of losing all or much of your new lip color. Please follow the instructions below unless otherwise instructed by a physician.

Don’t be alarmed at how dark the color looks right after the application. The final result will be much lighter than it first appears. During the first two weeks you will lose about 40% of your color. After that point your permanent make-up will look perfectly natural. However with permanent cosmetics for lips it will require at least two more touch-ups to achieve the desired look and even color distribution.

If you started taking prescription antiviral medication before the procedure, continue taking it for 7 days following the procedure, or as directed by your physician. If you don’t take the medication, you will almost certainly develop very painful cold sores around your lips.

Immediately after the procedure your lips will feel very dry, swollen and tender, they may also appear to be uneven or crooked due to the swelling. Please do not be concerned, the swelling will diminish within 24 to 48 hours and your lips will become evenly shaped.

Apply the supplied Bacitracin ointment on your lips several times a day for the first four days. Always use a clean Q-tip to apply ointment to the lip area, this will reduce the risk of a secondary infection. After the first 4 days, apply the supplied ointment (in the small jar) several times a day for another 10 days. It is absolutely imperative that you do not let your lips become dry as this will create dryness and scabbing, resulting in the loss of color and shading. Anytime your lips begin to feel dry, apply a liberal amount of ointment. Gently dab it on your lips but do not rub in.

It is best to brush your teeth with water only for 72 hours, post treatment.

Your lips will begin to exfoliate in approximately 4 days, resulting in a soft natural color. Occasionally the color may seem to have completely disappeared. After 3-4 weeks you will notice the color reappearing. It takes two to three applications of the pigment to achieve optimal color and desired results.

After lips are no longer tender to the touch they may become chapped and flaky. This is normal and to be expected. Please do not pick or scratch at them. Doing so may significantly reduce the amount of pigment retained. Avoid tanning beds, the sun, pools, hot tubs, any bodies of water and direct water pressure for two weeks. Be sure to always use a sun block once lips are healed. Do not use any Glycolic, Hydroxy or fruit acid products on lips. Avoid oily, salty and acidic foods and alcohol while healing. You can resume wearing lipstick and other lip products once lips are healed. When resuming with your makeup replace all old lip products with new products to reduce the chance of infection. It is advised to use a new lipstick after all lip treatments.

TOUCH-UPS

EYELINER & BROWS

In some cases, a touch-up procedure is needed, depending on your preferences of darkness, fullness and how well your eyes or brows took the pigment during the first procedure. All detail work and finishing touches will be done during your “touch-up” session (if needed). You may return in 30 to 60 days after your initial application to get your desired look. You will receive one touch-up appointment free as long as you make your appointment within the first 60 days of you initial appointment. If you miss the initial touch-up time frame there will then be a fee for touch-ups. For any touch-ups done after the first 60 days, but still within the first year, the fee will be $75.

LIPS

Lips sometimes take a little more effort to get them to retain the color well. You will receive two touch-up appointments free as long as you make your first appointment within the first 60 days & the second appointment within 60 days of the first touch-up. If you miss the initial touch-up time frame there will then be a fee for touch-ups. For any touch-ups done after the allotted time frame, but still within the first year, the fee will be $100.

EYELINER

Your permanent cosmetic procedure was performed using a sterile single-use needle and high quality pigments. The end result of your procedure depends greatly on following this aftercare protocol. If you allow your eyeliner to dry out during the first few days you stand the chance of losing all or much of your eyeliner color. Please follow the instructions below unless otherwise instructed by a physician.

Don’t be alarmed at how dark the color looks right after the application. The final result will be lighter than it first appears. During the first two weeks you will lose about 20% to 40% of your color. After that point your permanent make-up will look perfectly natural.

Do not wear contact lenses for at least 48 hours following the procedure.

Eyes may be swollen and tender for a few days. They will be the most swollen the morning after the procedure. Don’t worry about the swelling, your eyes will become much less swollen within a couple of hours, with normal activity. You may want to place a cold compress on your eyes for a few minutes when you first wake up in the morning or any other time you feel discomfort or swelling.

During the first 48 hours put ointment on eyeliner area right before you shower or wash your face to help protect the area from soap and water. Then put ointment on again after you dry your face. Don’t use soap or cleansing products around your eyes for the first 48 hours. After the first 48 hours you may wash your eyes with a mild soap, but do so very gently with your finger tips, not a wash cloth.

It’s very important to keep your eyes moist at all times with the aftercare ointment. It is absolutely imperative that you do not let the eyeliner area dry out as this will create dryness and scabbing, resulting in the loss of color and shading. It is best to apply the ointment approximately 3-4 times a day for 5-7 days. Always use a fresh Q-tip with each application of ointment; this will reduce the risk of a secondary infection. Be sure to put ointment on right before you go to bed at night, first thing when you wake up in the morning and one to two more times during the day. Itching is also common but do not rub your eyes or pick at the eyeliner, if you notice a little lifting of color, let it fall off naturally.

Do wear sunglasses when in the sun in order to protect the fresh color for the first two weeks. Avoid tanning beds, the sun, pools, hot tubs, and any bodies of water, direct water pressure and all creams around the eye for two weeks. Do not use any eye makeup for four to five days. When resuming with your makeup replace old eye makeup with new product to reduce the chance of infection. Do not dye, perm, or use an eyelash curler for 2 weeks.
