For the first 7 days, CLEAN 2-4 TIMES DAILY as instructed:
Gently apply 2 pumps of Blue Green Foam Soap (*water for eyeliner*), and remove with a soft and clean paper towel or gauze. Let air dry.
Apply a very thin layer of Aquatat ointment (*natural, moisturizing lip balm for lips*). DO NOT OVERSATURATE, as this will affect proper healing.
You may apply ice, in a paper towel or sandwich bag, for the first 2 days.
(10 minutes on, and 45 minutes off for the first 3-4 hours on Day 1)
Avoid the gym, sauna, sweating, chlorine, and prolonged sun exposure.
Change your pillow case the first 2 nights.
Avoid blood thinners such as: alcoholic beverages, aspirin, Vitamin E, and Fish oil, as these affect healing.
Avoid wearing makeup on the tattooed area, until healed.
Brows will peel. DO NOT PICK OR PEEL, as this will result in color loss or scarring.
After the first week:
Color will begin to look softer.
(You may fill in brows at this time, as they may “disappear” for a few weeks)
Use sunscreen, to protect your brows.
Keep/ book your touch-up appointment!
Signs and symptoms of infection including, but not limited to, redness, swelling, tenderness, and oozing/ drainage at the procedure site, as well as elevated temperature, indicate the need to seek medical care.
Healing varies per client. The original color will soften 30-40% (or more). The touchup appointment is where we perfect any areas that did not retain as much pigment. Touch-ups are CRITICAL, not optional!
No creams, makeup or mascara, or any other products on the treated area for 5 days.
Apply a sparse layer of organic coconut oil/grape seed oil/aquaphor with a clean finger or q-tip several times a day to keep liner moist. DO NOT let eyeliner dry out or scab.
NO Saline eyewash maybe used until eyes are completely healed. It will remove pigment.
Following the procedure, the area may be puffy for the first few mornings. A few options that may help/speed up healing are as follows: ice eyes often especially before bed and first thing in the morning, sleep somewhat propped up on your back, and avoid food high in sodium while the eyeliner heals.
Clean contacts can be worn 72 hours after the procedure.

The treatment area can be re-pigmented after a good recovery period of at least 3 months for cosmetic tattoo removal, and up to 6 months for body tattoo removal. However, the skin recovery process will vary from person to person.
If any unexpected problems arise during the healing process, even after you have followed all of the aftercare instructions, please contact a doctor.
You can return for another tattoo removal session every 2 weeks.
Please leave plaster on for 7 days, plasters are shower proof.
If you get a fluid buildup like a blister, remove plaster in the shower and allow the water to wash over the artwork, pat dry and then apply the cream given and then apply a new plaster to the area. Do not let the air get to the tattooing for more than 15 mins.
Remove plaster in the shower on a day 7 then apply the cream morning and night for a further 7 days. If the skin is still a little sore you can place cling film over the tattooing to protect against your clothing.
Some redness and tenderness for 48 hours is normal. It is normal to see redness around the skin, however if this last more than 48 hours please either contact me or your doctors.
No swimming, saunas, long showers or baths for 14 days.
For 7 Days:
Boil the kettle, allow to cool and bathe the areola morning and night. After bathing the areola apply ointment and cover with food wrap/clingfilm (this stops areola from drying out).
Apply vaseline when washing or showering, remove with tissue and re apply the ointment.
Do not pick or pull at the color, it may heal patchy.
For 2 weeks avoid:
Soaps, cleaners and water wash around the area.
Moisturizers, skin cream, and makeup
Picking at art and tanning beds
Chlorine pools, Jacuzzis and saunas
Hot, steamy, long showers
All aloe products
Keep using your healing cream to stop the area drying out.
*Don't be alarmed by the color of the areola. The final color cannot be judged for at least 4 weeks. Don't be alarmed by color coming off when applying ointment. Seek medical attention if you see signs of extreme redness or puss.
Permanent make-up procedures are affected by the canvas (your skin) that they are preformed on, if your skin is sun damaged, thick and uneven in texture, or excessively dry or oily you will not get perfect results after the initial procedure.
Scars on the lips from fever blisters cause pigment removal. Lifestyle medications, smoking, facial surgery, and age of skin all contribute to the fading of pigment.
