Aftercare Instructions 

  • Do not rub the procedure area.  This may cause pigment color to be removed along with the crusting.  

  • Do not touch the area with your fingers, they may have bacteria on them and can cause an infection. 

  • No makeup, lash tinting (for eyeliner and lash enhancement) avoid sun, soap, sauna, steam, exercise (this includes hot yoga), jacuzzi, swimming in chlorinated pools or swimming in the ocean for 7-10 days (until the area is completely healed) This includes any touch ups. 

  • Use a sunblock after the procedure area has healed to prevent fading of the pigment color. 

  • Touchup visits should always be scheduled 8 weeks 6 months minimum post procedure.  It is recommended to schedule your touchup at the same time you schedule your initial appointment. 

  • If you have any questions or concerns please notify me immediately (623) 451-9395

  • clients must follow all aftercare instructions for maximum results

  • Vaseline, Aloe Vera and homeopathic/natural products can pull color out of the skin. 

  • The procedure area will go through several healing phases. Do not rub, scratch or pick at the area. The procedure must heal, peel and fade this takes up to 10 days. 

  • The color will look 15-25% darker for the first 10 days as the procedure has blood and lymph in it.  After the procedure area is healed, it will appear much softer.  

  • Retin-A or Retinols, AHA's, Vitamin A or any similar lightening, anti-aging and peeling products (chemical peels) should be avoided at least 1 week prior to your appointment and you should avoid using them near your procedure area for a minimum of 30 days post procedure.  If you use these products prior to the procedure it could blur the strokes. Not sure if your products contain any of these ingredients on the back label. Skincare products can migrate under the skin 2-3 inches, hitting your eyebrows and compromising the results.  

 

EYEBROW AFTERCARE 

  • Avoid getting your eyebrows wet for the first 24 hours. 

  • Day of procedure blot with a dry tissue through out the day to remove lymph fluids from the treated area.

  • Days 1-2: Your skin will be red underneath where the pigment has been implanted.  Your brows will be 15-25% darker, more solid and more bold than your actual healed result.  You may experience some swelling. Gently cleanse brows blot dry 2 x a day morning and night

  • Day 3-7: The top layers of your skin underneath your brows will start to shed.  At this time you will start seeing some color loss.  This is completely normal and expected during the healing process.  If they begin to itch, avoid scratching or picking at them or you may experience less than desired results. 

       Continue to cleanse brows  2 x a day apply a very thin layer (rice grain size) of ointment 2 x a day. 

  • Days 5-10: Your skin is now exfoliating at a faster rate.  Pigment color will finish flaking off and will appear much softer for about 4 weeks until the color clarifies. 

  • Days 30-40: Your brows are finished shedding.  They have went through a healing process and the color is now planted underneath the epidermis. 

EYELINER  AFTERCARE 

  • ​ Eyelids tend to easily swell and can alter vision.  If you want someone to drive you to and from your appointment. 

  • 4-5 hours after treatment, gently clean the area with water and a cotton pad or tissue and allow to air dry (squeeze out excess water from pad prior to blotting your eyelids so that they are not completely saturated). You will want to avoid getting your eyelids wet for 10 days. 

  • Do not use mascara for 7 days post-procedure. When you do resume the use of mascara, purchase a new tube.  The old tube may have bacteria in it.  This includes all eye makeup. 

  • Do not use your eyelash curler for a few days pre and post procedure.  Clean your eyelash curler with alcohol prior to reusing it. 

  • Do not wear contacts for 24 hours post-procedure. Wear glasses instead.  If eyes are irritated do not use contacts until the eyes feel back to normal. 

  • Do not scratch or rub your eyes.  Use a saline solution if your eyes itch.  Scratching or itching your eyes may cause a corneal abrasion. 

  • Sleep on a clean pillowcase if you tend to be a face or side sleeper. 

  • If  you need to touch your eyes, use a clean cotton swab and gently do so. 

  • Touching your eyes with your fingers, unclean cotton swabs or old products may result in an eye infection, corneal abrasion or conjunctivitis. 

  • Apply a thin layer of the product you are given at your procedure within 24-48 hours to your fresh eyeliner.  You will want to use a clean cotton swab to apply it every time. Do not reinsert your cotton swab into the product after it has already touch your eyes.  Doing so can transfer bacteria and result in infection. You will want to apply the product morning and night.​

 

 SALINE REMOVAL AFTERCARE 

  • Keep the area clean and open to the air.  Do not cover the area with anything.  Keeping it in open air will provide the area with better and faster healing.  Avoid touching the area to prevent infection.

  • Do not soak the treated area in water or any other type of liquid.  You may shower as normal but try to keep the area out of direct water contact.  You do not want it wet for more than a couple minutes.  If the area does get wet, pat it dry (do not wipe). 

  • No bathing, swimming, saunas, hot tubs, exercise or tanning during healing process.  

  • When the scar appear, do not pick at them or scratch them.  Scabs must fall of naturally.  Keeping the scabs on as long as possible will help you achieve better results.
