Before Care For All Procedures

  • Do not work out the day of the procedure or plan to do heavy workouts for 7 days after.
  • Sweat is made of saline and removes the pigment that we have just implanted into your skin.
  • Do not tan or have sunburned face.
  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil or IBUprofen 24 hours before procedure.
  • No alcohol or caffeine 1 day before the procedure or the day of the procedure. (after is okay)
  • No waxing or tinting 3 days before the procedure.
  • Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
  • No tweezing/ waxing at least 48 hours before procedure; electrolysis no less than five days before. Do not resume any method of hair removal for at least two weeks.
  • Eyelash or eyebrow tinting or eyelash curling should be done no sooner than 48 hours before, or two weeks after the procedure.
  • Do not wear contact lenses during or immediately following the eyeliner procedure. Remember to bring your glasses. You may resume wearing your contact lenses a day or two after your procedure when the swelling has gone done or as soon as your eyes return to their pre-tattooed condition.
  • If you have lash extensions and want eyeliner done you will need to remove the lash extensions until the 2nd procedure is completed 30 days later. (Eyeliner takes 2 procedures 30-45 days apart)
  • If you have EVER had a cold sore on your mouth at ANY time of your life, you will need to be on medication from your doctor 2 days before the procedure, the day of your procedure and 2 days after your procedure.Each time you get a lip procedure done you will need to be on the medication those 5 days.

 
After Care Eyebrows for Microbladed Eyebrows

  • Within 4-5 hours after procedure – boil water, let cool to room temperature, and carefully wipe the area until any fluids are wiped clean. Reapply ointment on area – thin coat
  • Apply the ointment as needed the first 5 days for comfort and healing
  • No showers directly on face for 7 days
  • Wash hands thoroughly when petting pets.
  • NO water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 10 days.
  • DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 3-4 weeks after procedure.
  • Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days.
  • NO facials, botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.


Aftercare Eyebrows for Nano Needle Eyebrows

  • No tanning 30 days before or 30 days after your eyebrow procedure.
  • No working out for 10 days after your procedure as the sweat can cause the lines to blur.
  • A cream will be applied right after the procedure and it will protect the area for the 1st 3 days.
  • After 72 hrs. apply GRAPESEED OIL (a very thin layer) to the brows in the (1 x a day) morning OR evening for the remaining 11 days.
  • If you should experience any scabbing, crusting, or flaking, please let it exfoliate naturally. This will prevent any unnecessary infections or additional pigment loss.
  • If the area is still dry and flaky after the 14 days you can continue the Grapeseed Oil.It is OK to wash the brows after the 2 weeks, avoid scrubbing them.
  • It is standard procedure in our office to see our clients back 3 MONTHS after their original procedure for their 1st touch up.This is necessary to fine-tune the treated area.After the 1st touch up, it is recommended to schedule an 18 month touch up to maintain the color.All aftercare rules apply to all subsequent appointments as well.

  • No makeup around eye area for 5-7 days (including mascara)
  • Get a new mascara for use after the 5-7 days
  • Use green tea bags the day of and the day after to reduce swelling

 Longterm care

  • Use a good sunscreen, sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics
  • If you are planning a chemical peel, laser procedure or an MRI scan, please inform the technician of your permanent cosmetics
  • The use of Retin­A/Tretinoin or any other rapid skin exfoliation products used regularly on the forehead area will cause the permanent makeup to the eyebrow area to fade prematurely.
  • The use of chemical peels and acid peels regularly on the forehead region can also cause eyebrow tattoos to fade prematurely.


 Additional Information
               Antacids, thyroid and anxiety medications have been reported as interfering with permanent makeup either by affecting retention or shifting the pigment to an undesirable tone. Remember, everything we eat and drink have their own chemical structure and the electron ends that are unattached or free, may get attached to others compounds inside the body forming a new molecule that may show a different color spectrum. With that info, an educated client may have better expectation and know that she / he may need more frequent adjustments that others.

              As the area around the eye is a sensitive swelling or reddening may occur; you may want to postpone social plans for a few days. Please avoid these procedures at least a months prior to important life events such as weddings; procedures may take longer than expected to be complete under some circumstances.    The better condition your skin is in, the better the final result will be. Mature clients may need an additional one to two weeks healing for the final results to appear. The better you take care of your skin and protect it from UV rays, the better the outcome and lifespan of the permanent cosmetic procedures.

 Approximate Daily Healing Schedule for Permanent Cosmetics
Eyebrows        

Day 1-2        Your brows are approximately 20-40% darker, bolder and more solid than your healed result. Under the pigment, the skin is red and pigment has been deposited into the layer of skin containing dead skin cells; combined giving the appearance of darker color. There may be minimal swelling but because typically the eyebrow area does not retain much fluid, swelling will be limited. The top layers of skin will begin to shed on about day 3-5, and you will see a loss of color. This is normal. Do not scratch/ pick!
Day 3          Your eyebrows may begin to itch and the pigment may appear somewhat raised. Do not scratch/ pick!
Day 4-6        The skin is now rapidly exfoliating and will shed evenly if left alone. The color under the exfoliating skin will continue to appear light until the

                     epidermis takes on its more transparent characteristics.
Days 30-40    Now is the time to critique your brows, the tattoo has now become part of the dermis, seen under the epidermis.

 Eyeliner

Day 1          You may experience slightly puffy to swollen eyes, heavy lids,  light sensitivity and bloodshot pupils. You eyes may feel more swollen than they appear.  Please try to sleep in an elevated position to help reduce swelling at night. You may not want to use your best pillowcase the first two nights.  Use the green tea bags with the instructions you are given to reduce the swelling on the eyes.  Use the ointment you are given to keep the eyes moist.
Day 2          Eyes will be swollen and perhaps 'crusty' upon waking. The swelling will disappear from being in an upright position and increasing circulation to the

                    area. Avoid heavy lifting, physical exertion and crying.
Day 3          Eyes will be less swollen, but still tight. The lash area will feel sore if touched.
Day 4          Pigment within the epidermis will begin to flake off in little stitch looking lines, although some people do not notice the exfoliation at all. Do not

                   scratch/ pick!
Day 5          Blinking helps to eliminate the small pieces of pigment and epidermis which has detached. Do not scratch/ pick!
Day 7          All shedding should be complete. You're safe to put your face back in the shower spray.


Lips


Day 1              Lips will be very vivid (no matter the color) and dark and swollen.  We will give you an ointment to keep on it for the next month. Nothing

                       should touch your lips for 3 days.  (no kissing either) Use a straw or your teeth to eat and drink.

Day 2-7          Your lips will exfoliate rapidly, peeling and shedding the top layer of your skin. (This is normal) At the end of the week it will appear there is no                                color left on your lips. (there is) Keep putting the ointment on and keep them clear of any makeup, cleansers, etc. 

Day 14-16      A little color will come back and a week later more color will come back

Day 30-40      This is the true color that your lips will be.  You should have an appointment made for 45 days out to perfect and add to the color on your lips.

                       It will be lighter than you expect.  (it is common you lose 50% of the color from the day of your procedure)
