After care

PERMANENT MAKE UP AFTERCARE

Please note that you may experience some swelling for several days after the procedure. A small scab can form after the treatment but will fall off in a few days. You should apply Vitamin A&D ointment to prevent dryness. Do not use anything else to accelerate the healing process. Stay out of chlorinated pools, saunas and sun beds until area has healed.

YOU MUST FOLLOW THIS REGIMEN OF DAILY CARE:

  1. Do not touch the treated area unless applying ointment. No scratching, rubbing or picking of the treated area.
  2. Do not apply makeup around the treated area until healed.
  3. If your lashes are sticking together, moisten with distilled water and remove residue.
  4. Apply ointment many times a day (I think it is best keeping it moist all of the time) on a treated area until peeling or sloughing occurs: brows three days, eyeliner 3 to 5 days, lips until healed.
  5. If you wear hard contact lenses you may then one day after procedure.
  6. Artificial tears may be used.
  7. Touch ups may be done no sooner than 30-40 days after the procedure.
  8. Always wear a sunblock (30 or stronger) when outdoors
