Pre+Aftercare

for Permanent Makeup

STEP 1: 1 HOUR AFTER YOUR TREATMENT rinse very gently with a neutral PH unscented soap (Cetaphil) and warm water. Remove all the lymph. Dab the area dry with a clean cotton pad and reapply a very thin layer of the aftercare ointment. Avoid getting the area wet for additional 7 days other than the normal required post-care cleansing process (i.e. swimming, sauna, etc). Repeat this step every 3-4 hours for the first day of your procedure until you go to sleep.

STEP 2: FOR THE FOLLOWING 3 DAYS, REPEAT STEP 1, 3-5 TIMES A DAY. 
For Normal/Oily/Combination Skin: Apply ointment 3 times a day

  • Eye surgery needs a min of 6 months before tattoo

  • Surgery on the actual eye itself needs a note from doctor

After Care

We recommend a dry healing method (until the scabs are gone - usually it takes about one week, might be longer for some, but generally about that time)

Day 1- may be some swelling by end of day. Clients may apply ice over a clean cloth, but not directly on skin.

Day 2- may be some swelling, but should go down by the end of this day or the next.

Day 3- skin may feel dry, this is normal. Light layer of coconut/grapeseed oil may be applied, but very carefully and not in excess.

Day 4+- continue to keep area dry and free of makeup/products until scabs are gone (no sauna, pools, sunbathing, do not peel scabs)

Between appointments, be careful not to use creams/products that contain acids or ingredients that will lighten or exfoliate the skin.

Freckles

Clean the application area 24 hours after the appointment. Then twice a day (morning and night) for 2 weeks.

Cleanse the area using a liquid, mild, fragrance free soap using only your hands. Do not use a rag or any other kind of facial cleaning tool/brush. These contain bacteria and can cause infection and they can reduce pigment retention. Be sure to rinse all of the soap off and then pat dry with a clean dry paper towel.



Apply a thin layer of the provided ointment after cleansing. This will soothe the area and protect against infection. Do not use anything else on your healing tattoo!

You may apply a gentle moisturizer or sunscreen after 1 week.

Be sure to have clean hands when touching the application area. Please ensure that any item that comes in contact with the application area is sanitary.

Avoid the following for 2 weeks:​

  • Acne products (Salicylic acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, Anti-Aging products (Retinol and Retinoids), Topical prescriptions, Oils or acids. Basically do not apply anything additional to your skin that was not provided to you.

  • Pick, pull or scratch, this will affect your overall results.

  • Submersion of the application area. Do not soak face in shower or bath. Avoid swimming (pool, lake, ocean).

  • Excessive sweating (exercise, sauna).

  • Direct sun exposure (tanning bed, sun bathing), try to shade the face when enjoying the outdoors.
