TREATMENT CARE

 

•Pre-Care​

  • PRIOR TO YOUR PERMANENT COSMETIC ENHANCEMENT THINK ABOUT THE LOOK THAT YOU WISH TO ACHIEVE. 

  • PERMANENT COSMETIC ENHANCEMENTS NORMALLY REQUIRE MULTIPLE APPLICATION SESSIONS. 

  • BE PREPARED FOR THE COLOR INTENSITY TO BE SIGNIFICANTLY SHARPER AND DARKER IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PROCEDURE. THIS WILL SUBSIDE AND BECOME SOFTER AS THE SKIN HEALS ABOUT 14 DAYS. 

  • AVOID TANNING 4 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT.

  • DO NOT COME TO YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH A SUNBURN OR FLARING SKIN AROUND WHERE YOUR TREATMENT WILL BE PERFORMED. IN THIS CASE, EMAIL ME AT LEAST 48 HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT TO RESCHEDULE.

  • AVOID CHEMICAL PEELS, IPL LASERS AT LEAST 4 WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT.

  • AVOID ALCOHOL, IBUPROFEN OR ANY MEDICATION THAT THINS THE BLOOD 24 HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT.

  • MICROBLADING: ​IF YOU NORMALLY GET YOUR EYEBROWS WAXED OR THREADED TO MAINTAIN THE SHAPE, YOU MAY GET THEM SHAPED 3 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR MICROBLADING APPOINTMENT. IF YOU NORMALLY TINT YOUR BROWS, MAKE SURE AND TINT THEM 3-5 DAYS BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT. 

  • Aftercare

  • IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING YOUR PROCEDURE, THE TATTOOED AREA WILL APPEAR TO BE DARKER AND BOLDER IN COLOR AND MORE SHARPLY DEFINED. THIS WILL HAPPEN FOR THE 2-3 DAYS AFTER THE FIRST APPOINTMENT.

  • SWELLING AND REDNESS IS MINIMAL WITH MOST CLIENTS, AND WILL DISAPPEAR WITHIN 24 HOURS.  THE TREATED AREA MAY FEEL A BIT LIKE A SUNBURN AFTERWARDS BUT THERE SHOULD ONLY BE MINIMAL DISCOMFORT. ITCHING AND SCABBING MAY OCCUR. PLEASE APPLY THE AFTERCARE CREAM TO HELP SOOTH THIS DISCOMFORTS.

  • YOU MAY SHOWER OR BATHE NORMALLY, BUT AVOID USING ANY SOAPS OR CLEANSERS ON THE TREATED AREA FOR THE FIRST WEEK AS THEY CAN BE DETRIMENTAL TO THE BONDING PROCESS THAT MUST TAKE PLACE FOR THE PIGMENT TO STABILIZE IN THE DERMIS.

  • DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR HEALING SKIN TO DIRECT SUN, TANNING BEDS, HOT TUBS,SAUNAS, SALT WATER FOR 2 WEEKS FOLLOWING YOUR PROCEDURE.

  • WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY BEFORE TOUCHING THE TATTOOED AREA.

  • KEEP THE TATTOOED AREA CLEAN BY RINSING WITH LUKEWARM WATER AND PATTING DRY WITH A DISPOSABLE PAPER TOWEL 3 TIMES A DAY.

  • AVOID ANY KIND OF MOISTURIZER, OIL AND VASELINE FOR THE FIRST TWO WEEKS. ONLY APPLY A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF THE PROVIDED OINTMENT IN THE MORNING AFTER CLEANING THE GOAL IS TO HAVE YOUR TATTOO FLAKE OFF NATURALLY, RATHER THAN FORM INTO LARGE SCABS. YOU MAY USE THE OINTMENT FOR THE FIRST 7 TO 14 DAYS.

  • DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH AT THE DRY SKIN/FLAKINESS; LET THE SKIN FALL OFF NATURALLY. PICKING CAN CAUSE SCARRING AND PREMATURE LOSS OF PIGMENT. 

  • DO NOT APPLY MAKE-UP TO THE TATTOOED AREA FOR THE FIRST 2 WEEKS. CHEMICALS OF ANY KIND MAY INTERFERE WITH THE HEALING AND COLOR OF YOUR TATTOO.

  • ONCE THE TREATED AREA IS COMPLETELY HEALED, ANY CHANGES OR ADDITIONS THAT NEED TO BE MADE CAN BE DONE AT YOUR FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENT.

  • THE COMPLETE HEALING PROCESS TAKES ABOUT 4-6 WEEKS, AT WHICH TIME THE TRUE COLOR OF THE TATTOO IS EVIDENT. DURING THIS PROCESS, YOUR TATTOO WILL SOFTEN AND LIGHTEN. BE PATIENT, EVEN IF YOU THINK TOO MUCH COLOR HAS BEEN LOST, AS YOUR SKIN IS STILL REGENERATING AND NATURALLY EXFOLIATING. WAIT AT LEAST 6 WEEKS TO SEE THE TRUE COLOR, AS IT SEEMS TO TAKE ON NEW STRENGTH, AND IT IS ONLY AFTER 6 WEEKS THAT YOUR TOUCH-UP/PERFECTING SESSION CAN BE DONE. KEEP IN MIND THAT MICROBLADED BROWS AND PERMANENT MAKEUP HEALS UP TO 30% SOFTER THAN THE INITIAL COLOR.

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR MICROBLADED BROWS: ONCE THE FLAKES HAVE FALLEN OFF, A SHINY LAYER OF HEALING SKIN WILL COMPLETELY COVER THE HAIR STROKES. IT WILL APPEAR AS THOUGH THE EYEBROWS ARE GONE. WITHIN 1-2 WEEKS, THE HAIR STROKES WILL SLOWLY REAPPEAR AT A LIGHTER SHADE AS YOUR SKIN REGENERATES. 

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PERMANENT MAKEUP: A TOUCH UP MAY BE NEEDED 1 TO 5 YEARS AFTER THE PERFECTIONS SESSION DEPENDING ON YOUR SKIN, MEDICATIONS AND SUN EXPOSURE . I RECOMMEND TOUCHING UP EVERY FEW YEARS TO KEEP YOUR TREATMENTS LOOKING FRESH AND BEAUTIFUL. 

  • IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR MICRONEEDLING: USE ONLY A GENTLE CLEANSER AND LUKEWARM WATER TO CLEANSER YOUR FACE FOR 72 POST-TREATMENT.

  • FAILURE TO FOLLOW AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN INFECTIONS, PIGMENT LOSS OR DISCOLORATION. 

  • Once Healed

  • EXPOSURE TO THE SUN OVER TIME CAN CAUSE FADING AND DISCOLORATION OF THE PIGMENT. ONCE COMPLETELY HEALED, YOU MAY APPLY SUNSCREEN ON THE TREATED AREA. WEAR LARGE SUNGLASSES AND A HAT FOR FURTHER PROTECTION. RINSE AND DRY THE AREA THOROUGHLY WHEN IN CONTACT WITH CHLORINE.

  • GLYCOLIC ACID, RETIN-A, FACE PEELS AND EXFOLIATION MUST BE KEPT AWAY FROM THE TATTOOED AREA AS CONTINUED USE COULD LIGHTEN THE PIGMENT.

  • IF YOU ARE HAVING LASER RESURFACING OR LASER HAIR REMOVAL AFTER YOUR TATTOO HAS HEALED, PLEASE INFORM THE LASER TECHNICIAN.  LASER PROCEDURES MAY DARKEN, LIGHTEN, OR DISCOLOR THE TATTOOED AREA.
