Eyebrows will be tender immediately after (Tylenol will help), but you are able to go back to work or continue your daily routines with some exceptions that are listed below. Eyebrows will appear too dark immediately after the procedure. This is temporary. The color will progressively lighten each day as it heals. If you love the color and darkness when you leave your first session, then you will be unhappy in 5-10 days when your brows lighten and heal.
Eyeliners you will need a few days afterward without any social plans or strenuous activity. Eyeliner immediately after will appear extremely bold in color and thicker due to any swelling. The day of the procedure is usually a down day, I recommend going home and cooling down the eyes. Keep yourself elevated as to not promote swelling and bruising. Sometimes the following day can be worse than the first so plan on taking an extra day off just in case you fall in that category. Everyone heals differently, alot depends on the condition of your skin and the thickness of the liner you choose.
Lip color is extremely bright and vivid along with some moderate swelling for the first 24-48 hours. You will want 1- 2 days before going out on the town. Most clients lose approximately 60% of the initial implanted color within the first couple of days. Full lip color just puts pigment back into the lips for a more youthful looking appearance.
Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (this thins the blood)
If you have had any type of eye surgery, consult with your physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent eyeliner procedure.Usually two months is sufficient with most physicians after lasik,cataract, and blepharoplasty.
It is important to pamper your new makeup and keep a protective veil of Aquaphor over the treated area. This prevents scab formation and drying, which can “lift out” the newly implanted color. If your planning on being outside, sunglasses and a visor are a must! You do not want a sunburn on freshly tattooed skin.
Gently blot the area with a clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 10-15 min for the first day until the weeping/oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.
Apply a rice grain amount of Aquaphor ointment with a cotton swab or thoroughly cleansed fingertips and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and hinder the healing process.The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the Aquaphor ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
Apply the compresses for no more than one hour in 10 minute intervals (10 min on….10 min off ….10min on…and so forth)
After 5 days you can start wearing mascara again but a new tube is required ( dont want infection)
Keep all makeups and moisturizers including sunscreen away from the treated area, the only thing that should touch the treated area is the Aquaphor ointment while healing.
Avoid swimming, lakes, hot tubs for 10 days
TOUCH-UP VISIT : This is exactly what the name implies. Your permanent makeup will more likely than not need to be touched up.The goal of this visit is to fill in any areas that need enhancement. Whether it is adding a few lines to the eyebrow or adding more thickness to an eyeliner the touchup is when we put in more perfection!
My goal is to ensure that you recieve the best results from your procedure. To achieve the best results, your skin must be healthy, strong, and non-irritated. Unfortunately, not all clients are good candidates for permanent makeup due to their compromised skin condition or pre-existing medical conditions.
