My work is only as good as the canvas I have to work on. It is important that you follow aftercare instructions, short and longterm to maintain the shape, color and longevity of the Permanent Makeup
Following Cosmetic Tattoo Procedure:
- Apply very little Vaseline on the treated area twice a day for 3 days. This is especially important after cleansing in the morning and before bedtime.
- You may apply makeup around the treated area after 72 hours, but remove only with Vaseline. To keep the area sanitary make-up has to be brand new. On the eyes apply make up only after 7 days.
- Avoid sleeping on the treated area. Try to sleep on the back, not the side or on the face.
- Absolutely no cleansing crèmes or chemicals on the treated area.
- Absolutely no scrubbing. Do not pick at the epithelial crust; allow it to flake off on its own.
- Do not soak treated area in bath, swimming pool or hot tub. Do not swim in fresh, salt or chlorinated pool water for at least 5 days.
- Do not expose treated area to full pressure of the water in the shower for at least 5 days.
- Do not to touch the treated area with your hands until healing is complete.
- Do not expose the treated area to a room with a lot of debris, smoke or steam.
- Thicker eyeliner and all full lip color will require more than one session.
- Colors appear brighter and more sharply defined immediately following the procedure. As the healing progresses color will soften. This will take approximately 5-10 days.
- After the skin is healing the top color flakes off, your permanent make up will appear spot like and uneven as your skin does not shed the color evenly and all at once. The color my also appear to be “gone” as you go through the frosting stage. Do not worry color will reappear after your skin is completely healed, which can take up to 3 weeks.
- It is normal to lose up to 20% of the color in the initial procedure.
- If a touch up is required an appointment cannot be scheduled sooner than 4 weeks after the procedure.
- Touch ups scheduled later than 8 weeks after the initial procedure are considered a boost for an additional charge.
Failure to follow post-treatment instructions may cause loss of pigment discoloration or infection.
