Days 1-4 (Clean 3 times daily as instructed below):
Gently apply 2 pumps of Blue Green Foam Soap to the brows and gently remove with a soft, clean paper towel or gauze. Let brows air dry.
Apply a tiny amount of Aquatat ointment to brows. Blot away the excess. DO NOT OVERSATURATE.
Place ice packs in a sandwich bag or paper towel and apply to brows 10 minutes on/45 minutes off for the first 3-4 hours on Day 1.
Change pillow cases the first 2 nights of healing.
Avoid gyms, sweating, saunas, chlorine, and prolonged sun exposure for 7 days.
Keep hair away from brows and avoid touching the tattooed skin.
Avoid blood thinners such as: alcoholic beverages, aspirin, vitamin E, and fish oil for 7 days.
Days 5-7 (Clean 2 times daily as instructed below):
Continue to clean twice daily, then apply a tiny amount of Aquatat ointment after each cleanse. Blot away excess.
The brows will begin to peel. DO NOT PICK OR PULL THE SKIN. Picking will result in color loss or cause scarring.
After the peeling has subsided, the color will start looking softer.
Introduce the use of sunscreen after Day 7 to protect your tattoo.
Keep your scheduled touchup appointment.
Do not expect perfection after your initial procedure. Adjustments can be made during your touchup appointment.
In 1-3 days, the swelling should subside and color will still appear dark.
**PLEASE NOTE: Healing is specific to each client. Color WILL fade/soften anywhere from 30-40%. At the time of your touchup procedure, we will perfect any areas that may not have retained as much pigment. This is why touchups are CRITICAL.
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.

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).

*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.
