Proper care following your procedure is necessary to achieve the best results. Keep in mind that in many cases during the initial healing there is some pigmentation loss or an uneven color. This is completely normal and will be corrected during your follow up appointment. Please review the following care directions. If you have any questions or concerns during your healing process you may either email me at the link below or you may call the studio at 781-598-8282 and Brit will be able to assist you. Some of the instructions are procedure specific. Happy Healing.
1) After the procedure there will be some swelling that will vanish as it begins to heal. Ice packs protected with a clean cloth may be applied to reduce this swelling.
2) Wash your hands before touching the treated area. For eyeliner clients, cotton tipped applicators may be used to gently cleanse the eye area. Do not expose the treated area to dirty or unsanitary conditions. Wearing glasses out doors is a good way to protect new eyeliner tattoos from dust etc.
3) Some itching is normal. This is part of the healing process. You may be tempted but DO NOT PICK, PEEL, OR SCRATCH the treated area or it may heal unevenly and will risk scarring or infection.
4) No makeup is to be applied for 72 hours after the procedure and any cosmetics you use on treated areas (such as mascara) should be brand new to prevent any bacteria entering your treated area. Do not use an eyelash curler for two week after the procedure.
5) Do not expose your healing skin to direct sun, tanning beds, hot tubs, pools, saunas, yoga mats, salt water, skin creams or lotions (other than used for after care). You may shower but do not have the shower spray hit the area directly. After your shower, dry by gently patting the area. Do not rub the area with a towel. After two weeks, you are able to return to swimming, hot tubbing or soaking in a warm bath.
6) After lip procedure, keep your lips moist at all times. Avoid spicy or salty foods. If using herpes medication, continue as prescribed.
7) If you are planning a chemical peel, MRI or other medical procedures, please inform your physician of your cosmetic tattoo.
