Aftercare

  • NO water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 10 days.
  • DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 3-4 weeks after procedure.
  • Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days.
  • NO facials, botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
  • You may experience slightly puffy to swollen eyes, heavy lids, light sensitivity and bloodshot pupils. Your eyes may feel more swollen than they appear. Please try to sleep in an elevated position to help reduce swelling at night. You may not want to use your best pillowcase the first two nights.
  • Eyes will be swollen and perhaps ‘crusty’ upon waking. The swelling will disappear from being in an upright position and increasing circulation to the area. Avoid heavy lifting, physical exertion and crying.
  • Pigment within the epidermis will begin to flake off in little stitch looking lines, although some people do not notice the exfoliation at all. Do not scratch/ pick!
  • Blinking helps to eliminate the small pieces of pigment and epidermis which has detached. Do not scratch/ pick!
  • All shedding should be complete. You’re safe to put your face back in the shower spray.

Long-term Care

  • Use a good sunscreen, sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics

  • If you are planning a chemical peel, laser procedure or an MRI scan, please inform the technician of your permanent cosmetics

IMPORTANT: The color will become lighter as the epidermis sloughs off and the skin heals over the pigment. During this time the color may seem to disappear, as the skin is opaque during this healing time. After a couple of weeks, the skin becomes translucent and the color will bloom. It is not uncommon to lose the color on the first application.
