For Brows: Following the aftercare instructions is extremely important in order to ensure good retention of color during the healing process.
Aftercare accounts for over 60% of the healed results.
Avoid getting the area brow area wet for up to 7 days, which includes keeping your face dry during a shower.
Use a damp face cloth or face wipe to clean your face.
Don’t pick at scabs, tug, or itch the eyebrow area.
This will increase the chance of infection and possibly cause skin damage and scarring.
Use a damp cotton pad to gently wipe the area for the first day.
This will reduce the build up of lymph fluid as the brows heal and reduce the chances of scabbing.
For Lips: Apply any medicated cream or healing balm as recommended by your technician.
The cream should be applied for up to 7 days.
Do not let the lips dry out - they should always have some form of aftercare balm or healing balm on at all times.
Do not eat spicy food or drink from a straw. You want to keep the lips dry.
Avoid kissing while the lips are healing. SORRY!
Don’t put makeup on your lips for at least 10 days.
This is because the skin is still healing. Applying makeup to the lips will increase the chance of infection.
Avoid saunas, swimming, and excessive sweating until all services are completely healed, which may take up to two weeks.
Long Term Aftercare: Wear lip balm that has at least SPF 15+ in it! Sun exposure over a prolonged period of time will fade the tattoo. Do not use strong chemical acids/ peels (salicylic, glycolic, lactic acids), IPL or laser on the healed cosmetic tattoo, as these will fade the tattoo over time.
