Post Procedural Care

Eyeliner

Expect light to moderate swelling and redness.  Tea bags or ice packs may be used to minimize swelling the day of and the day after the procedure.  Use A&D Ointment or Vaseline around the treated area for two to three days following the procedure.  You must use NEW mascara to avoid contamination.

Eyebrows

Expect slight swelling, thickness, and /or redness for one to two days following the procedure.  Keep lightly glossed with A&D Ointment or Vaseline for three to four days.  Wash with water and pat dry.

Lipliner/Lipcolor

Expect moderate swelling, usually one to two days following the procedure.  Applying ice for the first two hours is most important.  Continue throughout the day.  Keep moist with A&D Ointment, Vaseline or Liprotek for the next five to seven days, then switch to Chapstick or lipstick with an SPF of 15 or greater, as the sun tends to fade lip color quickly.  After the procedure, the lips may appear to have too much color.  You may add makeup to soften the color.  After three to four days, the color will become lighter as the epidermis sloughs off.  It will appear that you have lost all your color;, however, when your lips have healed completely, the dermal layer will gradually become darker.  Two or three applications may be required to achieve the desired results.  It is not uncommon to lose up to 70% of the color on the first application.

Scar Camouflage/Areola Restoration

Keep area away from water for 24 hours.  Keep moist with A&D Ointment or Xeroform for three to five days.  No vigorous exercise for 24 hours.

 

  1. Do not use any Retin-A or Glycolic Acids while healing!
  2. Do not use Peroxide or Neosporin on ANY areas!
  3. Do not scrub or pick treated areas!
  4. Do not expose area to sun or tanning beds!
  5. Avoid facials, swimming, and/or whirlpools for at least five days!

FAILURE TO FOLLOW POST-PROCEDURE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN LOSS OR DISCOLORATION OF PIGMENT.

The known possible complications from micropigmentation are: -redness -swelling -puffiness -bruising -dry patches -tenderness

 

  • It is normal to lose approximately 1/3 of the color during the healing process
  • After initial procedure, the color may be a shade too dark; in six days it will appear too light.  After ten days, the color will show more.
  • It will appear softer when completely healed because the color will come from the dermal layer of the skin to the epidermal layer of the skin.
