POST PROCEDURE

Post Procedure

 

Going Home

  • Procedure areas will appear very vivid in color for the first few days after the procedure.  This will last for 2-5 days while the ink pigment naturally flakes off.
  • Do not pick or peel at the dried ink.  It has to absorb into the dermal layer.
  • Brows, eyeliner or lips will appear crusty after first week. Pigment will be much lighter, returning during the 4 weeks of healing.
  • Have an ice bag in the refrigerator to apply to the procedure site when you get home.
  • It is advisable not to make social plans for the same day and day following.
  • You must heal for 4 weeks between visits. (6 weeks for lips)

Homecare Procedure

On the first day…

  • Don’t dust or vacuum.
  • You may wish to relax with ice over your eyes or lips in the evening.
  • If needed use an OTC pain reliever after the numbing agent has worn off.
  • Use a FRESH PILLOW CASE.
  • A gentle cleanser is recommended daily.
  • Use provided cotton tipped applicators and T-RELIEF OINTMENT AM and PM till gone.
  • Lips will be very dry for 2 weeks post procedure. Use Aquaphor and provided lip balm on lips and keep well hydrated.
  • No pool swimming for one week post-procedure.

The first week…

  • Brow, eyeliner, and lip pigment will be very vivid in color!
  • Don’t be alarmed… you will lose at least 50% of color.
  • You will then have concern that the color has now ALL come off.
  • Don’t worry… the color enhancement will be subtle, youthful and natural looking after 4 weeks of healing.

After the first week

  • Excess sloughing of healed skin and excess pigment is expected.
  • Procedure will appear much lighter.
  • SPF 15 or 30 is required daily and consistently (winter too!).
  • Color boosts for lips are recommended 1-7 years.
  • Remember… 4 WEEKS of healing is usual before full color can be judged on eyes. Lip procedures require 6 WEEKS of healing before color can be judged.
