Eye Liner- After Care
Eyes may be swollen and tender for a few days. This is normal and will dissipate quickly. Itching is also common. An ice pack protected with a wet barrier film of a paper towel can very nice. Please do not ice for more than 10 minutes a sitting. Icing is most effective, the first 24 hours. Sleeping slightly elevated can also reduce any residual swelling of eyes. The most swelling is usually an issue the following morning after your procedure. You may soil your pillowcase with some residual pigment on eyes. In the morning if eyes are stuck together, use a wet Q-tip and gently separate. Do not rub. Peel or pick. Keep the area clean and only use the after care given for 3 to 4 days. Apply once in the am and once in pm. Use a fresh Q-tip for every application. Do not let the eyeliner become dry in the first 72 hours.
Avoid sun, pools, hot tubs and all creams around eye area. Eyes heal very well. However, they are exposed to the possibility of a secondary infection like conjunctivitis. If ointment is a problem, please do not use and rinse with buffered eyewash and seek medical attention for an antibiotic steroid eye drop. Eyes are sensitive to pet dander, gardening, dust and dirty hands. Sunglasses add wonderful protection to sun. Please use a new tube of mascara after each procedure. Do not wear makeup for 72 hours post.
Eyebrow- After Care
Please apply after care ointment for 7 to 10 days. Do not let the brows get dry and crusty. Some swelling, redness or itching is normal and to be expected. Only apply ointment twice a day with a clean Q-tip. Only a small amount is needed to occlude the eyebrow area. Keep clean and avoid sun, pools, direct water pressure. Do not pick or rub the area. Brows will oxidize and get darker before they soften in healing. This is normal! Do not wear any makeup for 72 hours on brow area.
Lip Liner and Full Lip- After Care
Lips will feel swollen and very dry after your treatment. Apply supplied after care ointment on lips several times a day. This should be done for at least 14 days post treatment. Do not allow lips to become dry. This may interfere with healed color. During the day if lips feel dry, apply a liberal amount of ointment. Just tap on skin and do not rub in.
Always use a clean Q-tip, not fingers to apply ointment to the lips area. This will reduce the risk of secondary infection. It is advised to sleep on an old pillowcase. There will be residual pigment coming off the lips for several days that can stain linens.
After lips are no longer tender to the touch they may become flaky. This is normal and is expected. Please do not pick or scratch at them. This may significantly reduce the amount pigment uptake. Avoid the sun and tanning beds pre and post procedure. Be sure to use a sun block once lips are healed. Do not use any Glycolic, Hydroxy or fruit acid products on lips. Avoid direct water pressure, pools and other bodies of water, until healed. Please be advised it is a good idea to brush your teeth with just water for 72 hours, post treatment. You can resume wearing lipstick once lips are healed. It is advised to use a new lipstick after all lip treatments. Redness, swelling, tenderness, dryness are all common post treatment side effects and will dissipate in a short period of time. Avoid oily, salty, acidic foods and alcohol while healing.
Lips are a muscle and will need 1 to 3 sessions to complete the process of this procedure. Lips are unpredictable. Some clients will yield very strong healed lip color. Others will only heal with slight color uptake. This will vary on an individual basis. Clients with sun damage, scar tissue (from injury or fever blisters) and clients with implants may not have strong results. Hyperpigmentation can happen on any lip client without warning. Fever Blisters are a known side effect of all lip procedures. Clients are asked to go to their doctor or dentist for an anti-viral medication prior to any lip procedure, to help avoid an outbreak. Follow all before and after instructions after all lip treatments. Lip retouch must be scheduled 45 days apart from initial season to help with color retention.
