POST PROCEDURE 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. Do NOT apply eye makeup for one week. Use lubricating eye drops immediately after prodecure. Do NOT get them wet for one week.

EYEBROWS
Expect slight swelling, thickness and/or redness for 1-2 days following the procedure. 2 hours after the procedure apply a tissue that is soaked in ice water for 5 minutes, then wash them gently with anti-bacterial soap, pat dry, then apply ointment that I give you. Apply ointment for one week 1 time a day(thin).Do not get them wet for one week.

LIPLINER / LIPCOLOR

Expect moderate swelling, usually 1 - 2 days following the procedure. Applying ice for the first 2 hours is most important and continue throughout the day. Use a straw for the first 24 hours. Keep moist with ointment for two weeks. Then use chap stick 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 make-up to soften the color. After 3 to 4 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 3 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.


Remember:
Do not use any Retin-A or Glycolic Acids while healing!
Do not use Peroxide or Neosporin on ANY areas!
Do not scrub or pick treated areas!
Do not expose area to sun or tanning beds!
Avoid facials, swimming and/or whirlpools for at least 5 days!
Do not dye or tweeze eyebrows one week before and after procedure!

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

THE KNOWN POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS FROM DERMAPIGMENTATION ARE:
REDNESS; SWELLING; PUFFINESS; BRUISING; DRY PATCHES; TENDERNESS; IT IS NORMAL TO LOSE APPROXIMATELY 1/3 OF THE COLOR DURING THE HEALING PROCESS.

*AFTER ALL PROCEDURES, THE COLOR MAY BE A SHADE TOO DARK; IN SIX DAYS IT WILL APPEAR TOO LIGHT. AFTER 10 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.
