Post Procedure Care of Eyeliner Permanent Cosmetics

IMMEDIATE (POST-PROCEDURE CARE):

  • Dip a tissue in cold water, squeeze out excess, and pat, pat, pat to the treated area once an hour for 5 hours following the treatment. If discomfort and swelling is present you may use ice for 5 minutes on & 5 minutes off, as desired for comfort (this is optional not mandatory).
  • Change your pillowcase when you get home, to a clean pillowcase. We don’t want any previous body oils or cosmetics to rub into your new permanent cosmetics. Do Not allow pets to sleep near your face for at least 7 days. Avoid tasks that involve dust and bacteria.
  •  DO NOT sleep on your face, as this disrupts healing and loss of pigment will occur. If area is swollen the morning after the treatment, apply ice packs. Due to sleeping in a horizontal position, swelling will be its most obvious first thing the morning after your procedure. So during your morning ice routine, try to be vertical in a seated or standing position.
  • If area is swollen the morning after the treatment, avoid wearing contact lenses. DO NOT rub your eyes for at least 24 hours.

THE MORNING AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE:

  • Use lubricating eye drops as needed. Apply ice packs (if desired). Ice packs are not mandatory.

 FOR 5 DAYS (POST PROCEDURE CARE):

  • Gently clean treated area morning and evening with tepid clear water and your clean fingertips. Pat Dry. DO NOT SCRUB OR RUB!
  • Absolutely NO soaps, cleansing creams, or chemicals may be applied to the pigmented area(s)!
  • Apply a THIN veil of  the provided aftercare, Aquaphor, A & D Ointment or Vaseline at least 2 to 3 times daily (More IS NOT better with after care ointments!). It is especially important to apply the thin veil after cleaning the area each morning and at bedtime.IF you start to notice increased redness 1 to 2 days following treatment DISCONTINUE the ointment and contact us.
  • DO NOT wear mascara for at least 5 days. If you purchase a new tube of mascara, you may begin wearing it after 3 full days (instead of 5 days). DO NOT wear any type of “Waterproof” mascara for 30 days (1 month).
  • DO NOT soak the treated area(s) in a bathtub, hot tub, or swimming pool.
  • DO NOT expose treated areas to the sun or tanning beds.
  • DO NOT scratch or pick any crusted or scabbed area(s). Rather, allow it to slough off naturally.

FOR 30 DAYS (POST-PROCEDURE CARE) all month:

  • DO NOT use ANY type of makeup remover. DO NOT USE BABY OIL AS A MAKE UP REMOVER THIS MONTH!
  • Absolutely NO soaps, cleansing creams, lotions, moisturizers or chemicals may be applied to the pigmented area(s)! Doing so within the first 30 days will only strip out some of the color before your skin has had a chance to heal totally. Keep these items at least ½” away from your eyeliner during this first month.
  • DO NOT use ANY type “Saline” solution for your contacts. Saline is a salt product and will lighten your eyeliner if used during the 30 day healing process. Instead, you may use an eye irrigation solution as a substitute until your eyeliner is fully healed.

LIFETIME (POST-PROCEDURE CARE):

  • The use of ANY type of “Make-Up Remover” (Name-Brand does not matter) may jeopardize the longevity of your permanent eyeliner!!!
  • Avoid exposure of treated area(s) to the sun or UV rays of a tanning bed.
  • Avoid using chemical peels & exfoliating scrubs to treated areas.
  • The use of Retin A, Glycolic Acid, and Alpha-Hydroxy Acids can jeopardize the integrity of your permanent cosmetics. Please keep these products ½” away from your eyeliner at all times!

REMEMBER:

  • The treated area(s) will appear very exact, dark, intense, bright, and more sharply defined immediately after the procedure. It may appear to be too dark on your initial saturation visit, however when the healing progresses, the colors will soften and blend. A perfection visit appointment to refine and finish your permanent makeup may be made four weeks following the initial procedure. There is no charge for this “perfection visit” if done within 90 days of the initial procedure.

Post Procedure Care of Lips Permanent Cosmetics

WHAT EVERY CLIENT NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT LIP PROCEDURES:

Unlike other parts of the face, lips are a muscle, without hair follicles. Lips also have a very large supply of blood. The ratio of pigment retention taking on the vermilion border verses the vermilion tissue of the lip is very different. Lip liner will have a much greater retention of color. The vermilion tissue of the lips will be far less. Lip pigments tend to be translucent and need to be layered. This means a full lip may take 1 to 3 sessions, depending on the desired results, along with the natural lip color. In many cases a client will lose from up to 70% of the initial lip pigment application. They will get a much greater uptake of color on the second session, and third if warranted. This is the reality of lip procedures.

LIP SPECIFIC AFTER CARE INSTRUCTION:

      Change your pillowcase when you get home. We don’t want any previous body oils or cosmetics to rub into your new permanent cosmetics. Please be advised that any pigment residue could stain your pillowcase for at least 1-week after your appointment.

 

 Lips will feel swollen and very dry after your treatment. Pat lips gently with  cotton balls dipped in water each hour the day of your lip procedure. For several days following the procedure, rinse with tepid water 2-3 times per day to moisten and loosen body fluids from forming a crust. Then allow lips to dry for 5 minutes prior to applying your provided aftercare ointment. Apply supplied after care ointment on lips several times a day. This should be done for at least 14 days post treatment. Do not allow lips to become dry, it may interfere with healed color if dryness is permitted. Tap ointment on skin do not rub. Always use a clean Q-tip, not fingers to apply ointment to the lips; this will reduce the risk of secondary infection.

After lips are no longer tender to the touch they may become flaky. This is normal and is expected. Please do not pick or scratch at them, doing so may significantly reduce the amount of pigment uptake. Avoid the sun and tanning beds pre & post procedure. Be sure to use a sun block once lips are healed. Do not use any Glycolic, Hydroxy, Carmex or Fruit Acid products on lips. Avoid direct water pressure and submerged swimming until healed. Try to keep toothpaste off your lips for 72 hours, post treatment. You can resume wearing lipstick once lips are healed. Rule of thumb: if your personal lip-gloss or lip treatment products sting or burn your lips, toss it back in your drawer for another week. Rinse it off your lips and apply provided aftercare ointment. A lot of commercial lip products contain acids in them as a preservative; this could burn you if used prematurely. Redness, swelling, tenderness, dryness are all common post treatment side effects and will dissipate in a short period of time. Also avoid any friction to lip area until healed.

Fever Blisters are a known side effect of all lip procedures. Clients are asked to go to their doctor or dentist for an anti-viral medication prior to any lip procedure, to help avoid an outbreak (Valtrex or Zovirax are commonly prescribed by physicians, however we ask that you follow your doctors recommendations).

Lips heal in three stages

  1. Too bright (immediately post-procedure)
  2. Too light (after sloughing)
  3. Just Right (in about 28 days)

The older the client is, the longer the healing period will take. Waiting an extra week before any retouches is advisable for clients over 50 years of age. This extra week will allow the restoration of the natural collagen to the lip tissue.

THE PROGRESSION OF THE HEALING LIP:

Why do lips appear pale after the first week? Simple, there is extra pigment trapped in the epidermis that will shed and slough off in the first week, then actual healing begins. As skin encapsulates the pigmented area, it may appear very opaque. This is normal and to be expected. Pigment is now being viewed under the skin. As the natural healing proceeds, dead skin cells will slough off in about 4-6 weeks. Then you will see a nice color healed through the skin.

It is not realistic for a client to expect a true lipstick look. Lipstick is worn topically on the skin. Permanent lip procedure pigment (color) is viewed under the skin surface. During the healing process the lip pigments used will revert back to their original state, which is a powder. Clients need to understand that lip procedures do not replace makeup. In fact, it is advised to wear some type of lip-gloss to enrich the color of the pigment that has been implanted. Lips will vary in color on a daily basis, and change color during any given day. These changes in a healed lip color will occur for various reasons; when we are hot or cold, or if we are well hydrated vs. dehydrated are a few of the more common reasons.

If you are informed, follow post-care instructions, and have realistic expectations about your final lip color, you can enjoy the remarkable benefits of what a Permanent Lip Procedure can offer.

 

 

LIPS

DAY

EFFECT

Day 1

Swelling, tender, heavy thick lipstick look .

Day 2

Slight swelling, reddish and tender with a slight metallic flavor.

Day 3

Less swelling, thicker texture, sore, hot feeling before exfoliation with an orange color effect.

Day 4

Exfoliation begins, very chapped lips. Still tender.

Day 5

Very chapped but almost finished with first chapping stage.

Day 6

A soft, rich color begins to appear.

Days 7-13

Lip color disappears and the "frosty" (2nd chapping) stage begins as a whitish/grayish haze on the lips.

Day 14

Color "blooms" from within more and more each day until day 21 (3 weeks post procedure).

Day 21

Healing complete. The color you see is the color you have. However, lips remain a bit dry for a month or two. Use a good lip balm and they will return to normal but with color! Do not use Carmex!

 

EYELINER

DAY

EFFECT

Day 1

Swollen, like you've been crying, with a heavier eye makeup look

Day 2

Swollen, usually for a few hours after waking up, with the heavier eye makeup look continuing.

Day 3

Swelling decreases with a tight feeling. The pigment begins to lift away from the skin.

Day 4

There is a "pinching" feeling. Some itching is normal as the skin begins to flake. DO NOT PICK AT IT.

Day 5

Blinking movements of the eye usually removes all pigment by this day. Color is somewhat grayish and will take a few more days to clarify to full color.

 

 

EYEBROWS

DAY

EFFECT

Day 1

The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in width than they will be when healed. Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result. Now skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don't be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.

Day 2

Conditions remain the same.

Day 3

Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.

Day 4

The skin begins to flake - peeling from the outside edges first.

Day 5

Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until color clarifies.

Post Procedure Care of Areola Permanent Cosmetics

Your Permanent Cosmetics have been applied with sterile single service needles, using the finest colors available. The end result of this procedure depends greatly on your follow up with proper care during the healing process! If you have any questions, please call (727) 656-3935.

Do not take hot, steamy showers for at least one week. Warm, tepid showers are okay. Do not scrub the tattooed area. For best results apply a layer of Vaseline or A & D Ointment over the tattooed area to protect it from water and soap. Do this for the next 3 to 4 days.

  • For Best Results: Do not wear a bra or tight clothing and keep moist with Vaseline or A & D Ointment for 4 to 5 days. Try to prevent your Areola from sticking to your shirt or blouse. Loose garments are recommended.
  • Second Best Aftercare Instructions: If you feel it is necessary to wear a bra, then keep your areola(s) moist with a dressing over the area (4” x 4” gauze dressing), and lubricate with Vaseline or A & D Ointment for 4 to 5 days. If the dressing sticks, apply water to loosen. Change dressing a minimum of once per day.

Residual pigment may stain clothing or sheets. No heavy exercising for 48 hours.

Scabbing is normal. Do not pick at scabbed area.

Pigment will fade within 5 days.

Call the office if you experience any inflammation or any oozing.

If you want to schedule a revision or touch-up appointment, please wait 45 to 60 days.
