Before And After Cosmetic Tattoo Treatment
Before And After Cosmetic Tattoo Treatment
Before your treatment
Prior to your permanent cosmetic enhancement think about the look that you wish to achieve. As experts in the field of color analysis and makeovers, we ensure that the correct colors and styles are chosen for you, however you are part of the decision making process.
Permanent cosmetic enhancements normally require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results, you will be required to return for at least one control procedure six to eight weeks after the initial application.
Be prepared for the color intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become softer as the skin heals. This process can take up to fourteen days.
-Do not work out the day of the procedure.
-Do not tan or have sunburned face.
-Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, you are advised not to make social plans on the day of your enhancement.
-Please wear your normal make-up to your enhancement appointment.
-Do not take aspirin or Ibuprofen 2 days prior to and after your enhancement.
-A sensitivity test will be performed unless waived upon request.
-Do not use Retin-A skincare products close to the enhancement area 2 weeks prior to and after your procedure.
-Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
-As with electrolysis the National Blood Service does not accept donations of blood for 1 year after a permanent cosmetic enhancement.
-Waxing treatments should be performed no less than 3 days prior to your enhancement.
-IPL laser hair removal should be performed no less than 2 weeks prior to your enhancement.
-Electrolysis treatments should be performed no less than 5 days prior to your enhancement.
-Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your enhancement.
After your treatment
-No water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 10 days.
-4-5 hours after the procedure clean the area with sterile water and cotton pad, gauze or Q-tip and allow to air dry.
-DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring.
-Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 3-4 weeks after procedure.
-Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days.
-NO facials, Botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
-Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
PLEASE NOTE: EYEBROWS WILL APPEAR DARKER AND BOLDER DUE TO NATURAL SCABBING AND HEALING FOR THE FIRST 10 DAYS. THIS IS VERY COMMON FOR ALL PERMANENT COSMETIC PROCEDURES.
Permanent makeup is NOT recommended for any clients who are or have:
-Pregnant or nursing
-Undergoing Chemotherapy (consult your doctor)
-Viral infections and/or diseases
-A Pacemaker or major heart problems
-Had a organ transplant
-Skin irritations near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)
-Sick (cold, flu, etc.)
-Had Botox in the past 2 months
-Used Accutane in the past year
For any additional questions or concerns please call or message us! The area treated may show redness and swelling and that the color looks dark and intense—this is quite normal.
Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area has completely healed. A 6/8 weeks healing time is required before any more work can be undertaken.
In order to let your brows heal well, avoid water on the brow area; make up to the brow area, the gym, sauna or pool for 7 days.
Once the area has healed completely, approximately one week, consider using a waterproof total sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the color fading.
Strong chemicals or glycolic acid/peels of any kind may cause the pigment to lighten. Always telephone and check with your consultant if in any doubt.
Do not pick or pull at the treated area, as it will result in pigment loss. You will go through three healing phases: 1-healing, 2-peeling, and 3-fading.
You may notice whiteness or blanching around the area, this is quite normal and will subside within 12 hours.
The day of the procedure you might find any lymphatic fluid or blood on treated area, if so you should gently clean the area with saline, cool boiled water and gauze, blotting gently dry to remove any moisture.
With clean hands and Q-tip apply a fine layer of aftercare balm to the treated area (if treated area feels dry and itchy). You might repeat this procedure up to 3 times a day if the area feels tight.
After the fine scabbing has sloughed away you will see a different hue to the color implanted.
Giving Blood- The Red Cross has suggested that you do not give blood for 6 months following treatment.
