COSMETIC TATTOO AFTERCARE GUIDE
ICE ALL TREATMENT AREAS ONCE ON THE FIRST DAY!
APPLY OINTMENT BEFORE ALL CONTACT WITH WATER!
What to expect:
Slight swelling with varying degrees of redness. Fairer complexions will tend to be more pink/red. Skin should gradually flake. Use icepack if uncomfortable for first day. Color fades ~15%
How to care for your eyebrows:
Day of procedure: Pat lightly with CLEAN soft tissue to remove any fluid. Apply ice pack 1-2X on first day over clean plastic on skin. Wash face 2X per day with mild soap and lukewarm water. Pat dry, then air dry. Apply a rice grain size of ointment with CLEAN Q tip. Remove excess ointment.
What to avoid:
FOR 10 DAYS: Avoid placing face directly under hot water or hard shower stream. Avoid all acids (glycolic, retinoid, etc.), anti-aging and acne creams, lotions and cleansers on treated areas. DO NOT PICK brows.
What to notice:
Brows might weep for first few days. Change pillowcase DAILY for first week. Infections are extremely rare, however, if redness persists or pus appears, SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION.
*CONSULT PHYSICIAN IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE AN INFECTION!*
Follow-up for all procedures: A touch-up procedure is required in 6-8 weeks.
AVOID makeup and acids (such as HLA, Glycolic, all anti-aging and anti-wrinkle) on treated areas while healing (two weeks minimum).
Avoid touching treated areas, sunscreen, tanning beds, direct sun, and self tanning lotions.
Avoid all swimming (face submersion) and steam to face as well as heavy perspiring and exercise.
Don’t be alarmed if pigment comes off onto Q-tip when applying aftercare ointment.
Don’t be alarmed by color fading after first application.
Final color cannot be judged until 4-6 weeks after procedure.
If planning laser hair removal or Photo Facial using IPL, notify specialist as lasers may cause pigment to turn black.
