GENERAL AFTERCARE FOR ALL SERVICES
1. Immediately after procedure, the pigment will look darker and more dramatic than final color. When healed the color is subtle and soft. With a Follow-up appointment the color can be adjusted, deepened, or darkened to desired results. Keep in mind After-care is crucial in the healing process and can determine how much of a touch-up you will need.
2. Every 30 min dry blot area until you reach 3 hours after procedure. Thengently blot area with filtered water to remove any loose pigment, blood, and lymph fluid. After cleaning let air dry and discontinue soaking, rubbing and washing pigmented area up to 10 days. DO NOT submerge face in water. AVOID steam room, jacuzzis. saunas and activities such as gardening, swimming, and pet exposure to procedure site. Swelling and redness may occur around the treated areas for 1-3 days. Bruising may occur around the eye areas when eyeliner is performed. Any symptoms or signs of infection including but not limited to, increased redness and swelling, tenderness of the procedure area, red streaks going from the procedure side towards the heart, elevated body temperature or purulent drainage from the procedure site should be checked by a physician. You should begin to notice your skin beginning to peel and flake on or around day 3 and continue to shed until day 10. By then you will have a better glimpse of your healed color. Expect for the first couple weeks a fresh layer of new skin covering the pigment which may give it a different look. Final color will not show until around the fourth week. Eyebrows- swell the least and have little to no down time. They appear more 3D like for the first few days. Eyes- have a tendency for a little more swelling and irritation therefore, contacts should not be worn until the following day(s). Lips- will swell the most giving a drier, more tender, and chapped feeling. With the lips you may apply Chapstick or Aquaphor daily for extra hydration. DO NOT SATURATE! Let the lips breathe and your body will naturally heal them as well. Take the recommended antiviral prescription with all lip procedures to prevent cold sores. The pigment will dry, scab, and flake within 7 days.
4. Relief- to relieve any discomfort felt, you may use a cold compress as needed,(Not frozen stick with something cool and refreshing), avoiding long periods of time. You may take Tylenol or Ibuprofen for temporary pain relief if needed.
