COSMETIC TATTOO

First 3 Days

  • There will be an epithelial crust that forms in the days following the procedure. This crust is a combination of dried pigment and plasma that forms externally. It is important that you do not pick on the crust as it will result in the loss of pigment. The crust will fall off naturally within a few days.

  • For the first few days following the procedure, the area will feel like a sunburn. To remove any excess lymph clean the eyebrows with the wet wipes provided or any non-alcohol wipes very gently every 2 to 3 hours and then apply topical ointment (provided in aftercare pack). This will soothe the area, keeping it clean and moist and assist in healing.

  • If swelling has occurred (lips) ice pack can be applied in the first 24 hours and the swelling will settle overnight.

First 7 Days

Follow This Daily Regime

  • Do not touch the treated area unless applying ointment. No scratching, rubbing, or picking on the treated area

  • Be cautious around the area (such as pulling clothing over your head)

  • Do not come into contact with water for at least 3 days (therefore, No swimming, spas, saunas or excessively hot showers.)

  • Do not apply makeup on treated area until healed

  • Apply ointment every 2 to 3 hours on treated area until peeling comes off; normally 5 to 7 days. (Do not peel the area, let this fall off naturally)

  • Avoid exercise or activities that may cause excessive sweating. This will dilute the pigment and increase the chance of infection.

  • No makeup near the treated area. (Powders and brushes are full of bacteria)

  • No other creams, cleansers or oils near the area as this can remove pigment and may change the pigment tone.

  • Keep out of the sun.

  • Touch ups can be done after 4 to 6 weeks.

Ongoing

  • There should not be any chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or light (laser) therapy near the eyebrow area.
  • Do not use skin care that contains Vitamin A, bleach or acids as this will peel off the colour.

Please Note:

  • Please note in accordance to world-wide health regulations, no blood can be donated for 4 months following any cosmetic tattoo procedure.
