brows

AFTERCARE SCHEDULE

day 1
Your brows will “weep” a little bit throughout the day. Use the provided water wipes to gently wipe the brows every 30-60 minutes for the remainder of the day.

days 1-10
Beginning the first night, gently wipe your brows with the provided water wipes and carefully dry your brows by pressing with a clean paper towel. (Please do not use a cloth towel as these can harbor bacteria.) Only once your brows are completely dry, apply a rice grain size amount of the provided healing cream. Repeat this process every morning and night until the flaking stops.

 

REMINDERS

  • Avoid swimming, lakes, and hot tubs for the first week.

  • Avoid moist environments (sweaty exercise, saunas, long showers) for the first week.

  • Avoid getting anything but water and antibacterial soap on your brows for the first week. This means no anti-acne (Salicylic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide) or anti-aging skincare products (Lactic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Retinol), no makeup, no sunscreen, and no petroleum based products (Vaseline, Neosporin).

  • Let any scabbing or dry skin exfoliate naturally. It's VERY important that you do NOT scratch or pick at your brows.

  • Please wait until the healing process is complete (6-weeks) before waxing or threading your eyebrows or getting a facial.

  • As the scabs are healing, your skin will cover the pigment. Once the scabs fall off, your brows may appear lighter, as if the pigment has faded or fallen out. This is normal! As you heal, the skin will thin and you should see your final color by week 6.

AFTER HEALING

  • Sun exposure will cause your tattoos to fade. Once your tattoos are completely healed, you can apply sunscreen to the area.

  • Use of chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and anti-aging acids should be avoided in the tattooed area as these will cause your tattoos to fade.

  • If you are having any laser facial treatments, please inform the technician that you have eyebrow tattoos.

 

 

lips

AFTERCARE SCHEDULE

days 1-3
Lips will “weep” for a couple of days. Blot with paper towels and reapply the provided ointment.

days 3-7
Lips will start to peel. Apply a thick layer of ointment and use one (clean) finger to gently massage in circular motions. This will gently loosen skin that is ready to come off. You may repeat every few hours as needed. The edges or lip liner will fall off last.

 

REMINDERS

  • Lips will be tender. Use a straw to drink and carefully place food in your mouth using your fork.

  • Place a clean towel over your pillowcase to protect it.

  • Keep toothpaste off of your lips while healing.

  • If you have pain or yellow oozing past day 3, contact your Doctor as this could indicate infection.

  • As you’re healing, it may look as as if the pigment has faded or fallen out. This is normal! As you heal, the skin will thin and you will begin to see your color again around week 3, with final color by week 8.

Reminders

Infections are incredibly rare, but they are always a possibility. If you experience any of the following symptoms, consult a physician immediately.

Swelling: a slight amount of swelling is typical for a fresh tattoo. If swelling becomes excessive, uncomfortable and you feel the pain radiating beyond the site of the tattoo, then this is a sign of infection.

Fever: Fever is a symptom of an underlying condition, which is most often an infection. Please contact a medical provider if you think you may have a possible infection.

Removal

AFTERCARE SCHEDULE

days 1-3
Brightness or darkness of the tattoo, as well as bleeding & bruising are expected. Keep the area as dry as possible. Do not apply anything to the treated area.


days 3-14
Do NOT pick, peel, or scratch the treated area as it could cause scarring or changes to your natural skin color. Prematurely removing scabs will also increase healing time.

REMINDERS

  • Ice packs protected with a cloth may be applied as necessary to reduce swelling. Do not put ice directly on area, make sure there is a towel or cloth between the ice and your skin.

  • Do not expose your healing skin to direct sunlight, tanning beds, pools, salt water, saunas, or skincare products for 2 weeks.

  • If color is not completely faded after the procedure, the process may be repeated after skin has fully healed (8-12 weeks.) The skin may also be re-tattooed at this time.
