AFTERCARE

FOR PERMANENT MAKEUP AND EYELASHES

Microblading/Powder Brow takes between 4-6 weeks to fully heal. After this time you may receive your 1 touch-up if color hasn't retained, or if you would simply like to add more definition to your eyebrow tattoo. Touch up is not included in the price.

 

After the topical numbing wears off you may feel some tenderness on and around the eyebrow area. You may also experience slight swelling and redness the day of your procedure; this is normal and typically goes away within 24-48 hours. At this point you may take Tylenol if you feel any pain, but avoid Aspirin or Ibuprofen as it can cause blood thinning, which could interfere with pigment retention.

 

At first your eyebrows will appear darker and bolder immediately after the procedure, but will soften and fade as your skin heals in the coming days. The color will be changing throughout next couple of weeks. This is 100% normal. As with anything new on our faces, you will need time to adjust to new eyebrow design. 

Within a few days (typically 5-10) you will notice some scabbing or flaking on the tattooed area, do not pick any scab!!! Doing so can result in loss of pigment in those areas. Brows may appear uneven or patchy until the entire brow has finished exfoliating. You may notice that some areas may appear very light or even to have lost pigment entirely after they have peeled, the epidermis will be thicker causing muting, hiding or diffusing of pigment underneath. The epidermis will normalize over the next 4-6 weeks and softened pigment will resurface and "bloom" back into the surface of the skin.

 

At 4-6 weeks your brows will be fully healed. If you’d prefer darker, bolder brows we can always add more color or dimension during your follow-up appointment! 

 

Aftercare Steps:

Day 1- The day of the treatment.

Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5-10 minutes for the full day until oozing has stopped.  Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph- scabbing. 

Days 2-10

Wash daily to remove bacteria and dead skin. (Don't worry....THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)

Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil or Neutrogena. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.  


Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare oil with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area after washing. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.


Important Reminders:​

  • Use a fresh pillowcase

  • Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color

  • No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks

  • Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week

  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after procedure.  Wear a hat when outdoors.

  • Avoid heavy sweating and long hot showers for the first 10 days.

  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days

  • Avoid swimming, lakes, hot tubs for the first 10 days

  • Avoid topical makeup including sunscreen on the area while healing

  • DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area.

 

Important note about showering:
Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower.  Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.

It is extremely important that you follow our aftercare instructions.

Lip Tint

  • Proper care after your procedure is crucial to achieve the best results. Keep in mind that in many cases, some unevenness of color is to be expected. That is why it is recommended to schedule touch-up visit. After 3-4 hours from your procedure use damp cotton gauze to wipe the affected area. Keep your lips moist at all times. Aquaphor is recommended. Avoid spicy foods, direct contact with foods or drinks on the treated area for the first 2 days. Example: Use a straw when drinking liquids or using a fork when eating food.

  • Disposable Ice packs may be applied if necessary to reduce swelling.

  • Please remember to always wash your hands before touching treated area. Some itching is normal. DO NOT PICK, PEEL, OR SCRATCH the treated area or your color may heal unevenly. You may also risk scarring and infection.

  • No makeup is to be applied until all the scabs are gone. Only Aquaphor is allowed on your lips during healing process.

  • If using herpes medication, continue as prescribed. Do not use teeth bleaching products until fully healed.

  • Botox and Fillers can be done 2 months after Lip Tint.

  • The outcome of permanent cosmetic procedures vary per individual. The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be. Dry, sun damaged skin and lips are very difficult to achieve a beautiful even result. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks healing for the final results to appear as healing process takes longer. The better care you are taking of your skin to protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.

What to expect during healing process day by day.

  • 1    Lips will be swollen, feel tender and hot. You can apply disposable ice packs to reduce swelling.The lips will appear quite dark, just like wearing a bright or dark vivid lipstick. The color may appear warmer than ultimately desired.  They will feel very dry and you will feel a need to continually apply your aftercare product.

  • 2    Lips will usually be less swollen but still tight and dry.

  • 3    Even less swollen, still vibrant and might still feel hot.

  • 4    Skin begins to peel; you will see much pigment coming off. Do not pick or peel. Lip color under peeling skin will appear very light in color.

  • 5    Lips will appear and feel very chapped and dry. Peeling should be complete.

  • 6-7 Color appears very soft in color. Keep well moisturized with non-petroleum product. Color may seem to disappear and almost become ‘frosty’ in appearance.

  • 14  Color begins to ‘bloom’ little by little each day. Keep well moisturized.

  • 21-28     Healing is complete. The color you see is the color you will retain. Keep moisturized.

Eyelash Extensions

  • Avoid getting your lashes wet within the first 24 hours after your application.

  • For the first 48 hours after application it is suggested to avoid swimming, saunas, or steam rooms.

  • Avoid oil based eye products as they will weaken the bond of your adhesive.

  • Do not pick, pull or rub your lashes.

  • Avoid using mascaras.

  • Do not use an eyelash curler, perm, or tint your lashes.
