What is the post treatment care?
Post treatment care for permanent makeup is extremely important! You must follow it properly!
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN FULL LOSS/UNEVENNESS OF PIGMENT OR INFECTION.
DAY 1 (day of procedure): Please wash your hands with antibacterial soap every time before you touch your eyebrows. Then gently but thoroughly wipe your eyebrows with damp cotton pad every few hours to prevent possible appearing plasma from drying on your brows. Do not rub or wipe hard! Blot dry with a clean tissue. Right before going to bed wipe again.
DAY 2: In the morning gently wipe your eyebrows with damp cotton pad, blot dry with a clean tissue.
Skin will start to flake around day 5-10, can be earlier or later than that. Until it fully flaked off avoid any water, moisture and steam not to soak the flakes prematurely. If water accidentally gets on the area - blot dry quickly. If you still experience flaking at 2 and a half weeks after the appointment - most likely it is just dryness and your epidermis needs some help to finish shedding dead skin layers. You can start getting the brows wet and may wash your face as normal (but no excessive scrubbing of the tattooed area).
During the first two weeks (usual superficial healing period):
1. Avoid using makeup wipes, face wash, any skincare products directly on the brow area.
2. Avoid touching your brows too much especially with unwashed hands. Your brows might get a little itchy. Try to ignore the urge to scratch.
3. Do not use any Retin-A products, acids, peels, Peroxide, Neosporin, harsh skin care near the area while healing.
4. Do not scrub or pick your eyebrows, it can cause pigment loss, scarring or infection! Let all the flakes fall off naturally.
5. Do not expose the area to the sun or tanning beds! Must use hat and sunglasses if in the sun.
6. Avoid any facials, body massage, eyelash extensions, brow waxing, threading, tweezing, tinting.
7. Avoid workouts or any activity that causes heavy sweating, sauna, hot showers, steaming (inhalation).
8. Avoid swimming, whirlpools.
9. No makeup is allowed on the eyebrows and eyebrow area!
10. Try to sleep on your back if possible.
In the future:
To be avoided on the eyebrow area: direct sun exposure, solarium, light therapies, chemical peels, fruit acids (glycolic, etc.), microdermabrasion, any skin care that contains regeneration factors.
Always avoid laser treatments over the treated area (fraxel, IPL) because they can destroy the pigments and might cause burns.
Frequent use of antibiotics and hormonal therapy can lead to a faster pigment fading.
Always protect the eyebrows from the sun with cream containing SPF (except the first two weeks after procedure).
EYELASH ENHANCEMENT/SHADED EYELINER
Please wash your hands with antibacterial soap before you touch your eyes. Wash your eyes well but gentle with lukewarm water only once few hours after the procedure. Blot dry with clean tissue. Superficial healing typically takes up to 7-14 days. During that time do not touch or rub the area. Avoid water and don`t introduce any moisture to the area until you see that flaking is done. Moisture includes tears too. Do not pick the flakes. Do not put any makeup on and around the area (eyeliner, eyeshadow, mascara, etc.). Do not use any creams or ointments. For contact lenses wearers: be careful putting the contacts in and taking them out. Try to sleep on your back if possible. To clean your eyes in the mornings you can carefully use a damp q-tip (just around and not in the area of procedure).
DAY 1 (day of procedure): Please wash your hands with antibacterial soap every time before you touch your lips. Then wipe your lips with damp cotton pad every few hours to prevent possible appearing plasma from drying on your lips. Be gentle, but make sure you wiped good enough till you can`t see any pigment on the cotton pad. Blot dry with a clean tissue. Right before going to bed wipe well again and apply a VERY THIN layer of provided ointment using a clean q-tip.
DAY 2: In the morning wipe your lips gently but thoroughly with damp cotton pad, blot dry with clean tissue. Apply a VERY THIN layer of ointment.
After that for the rest of the healing try to avoid getting water on the area, if it happened - blot dry quickly. Be careful while eating and brushing your teeth. Drink through the straw, especially hot drinks. Don`t let lips stay too tight or dry, apply a very thin layer of ointment when necessary, but don’t overuse.
Do NOT use any other chapsticks, lipsticks or lip oils.
When flaking starts, let it peel off naturally, do not pick or scrub.
Do not expose the area to the sun or tanning beds!
