After Care Instructions for Common Procedures

Permanent Makeup, Eyebrows, Lips, and Eyes Aftercare

  1. Do not expose the treated area to the sun or tanning bed.
  2. You may gently wash your face with a mild facial wash and pat dry.
  3. Do not apply topical creams or antibiotics to the procedure site.
  4. Do not soak in a hot tub or swimming pool.
  5. As the procedure is healing, it may feel extremely tight. Use moisturizer after the first day to minimize dryness. Lips respond especially well to a heavy lip balm with sunblock or sun screen.
  6. Do not pick at your procedure site as it exfoliates.


The treated areas (brows, eyes, lips) will appear very exact, dark, and intense for approximately three to six days. What appears to be too dark on your initial saturation visit, in most cases, will exfoliate (peel or slough) in approximately one week. As healing progresses, the color will soften (however, in very unusual cases “settling” can still be taking place for up to 60 to 90 days). The treated area may then be too light in color. This completes your initial saturation visit and is the ground floor for your focus visit.

Tattoo Removal Aftercare

  1. Keep the treated area clean and dry, the healing period may take 4-6 weeks.
  2. Do not apply topical makeup to the treated area as it is healing.
  3. The intent is to allow the area to dry and produce a slight scab/crust.
  4. After 24 hours, a CORTISONE CREAM may be used to reduce excessive itching; except around the eye area.
  5. DO NOT APPLY ANY OTHER OINTMENTS as they moisten and soften the crust of the skin. These products do not allow the ink to continue to move to the surface of the skin.
  6. For the removal of facial tattoos, rinse the area three times daily with sterile saline solution to continue to “draw” pigment to the surface of the skin. After the third day, the healing process normally precludes absorption and the client should then discontinue the saline treatment. For removals on all other body parts mix Epsom salt according to manufacturer’s directions in a bath and soaking a minimum of 20 -30 minutes at least twice the day of your removal.
  7. DO NOT expose the treated area to the sun or tanning beds during or immediately after your removal procedure. IF YOU USE TANNING BEDS COVER THE REMOVAL SITE WITH A BANDAGE that seals the site on all four sides.
  8. USE SUN BLOCK on the removal site after your skin has healed for a minimum of SIX months. The appearance of the skin may be slightly pink for up to one year following the removal process. In addition, the lymphatic system will continue the removal process internally, and thus changes will be noted for up to one year after the procedure has ended.
