PERMANENT MAKE UP
Proper care following your procedure is necessary to achieve the best results. Keep in mind that in many cases, some unevenness of colour is to be expected. This is the purpose of the re-touch visit. Please review the following directions and refer to them as necessary. If during the healing process you have any questions or concerns, please contact your technician.
Daily Care to follow for at least one week or until your procedure has fully healed
- Always wash your hands before applying the aftercare healing balm. Apply a minimum of 3 times daily, using a cotton bud.
- Prevent cross-contamination of your healing balm by using a clean cotton bud for each eye.
- We recommend you use a gentle facial cleanser to clean the face during the healing period.
- Keep hair away from the procedure site to prevent any infection. Some itching is normal. DO NOT PICK, PEEL OR SCRATCH the treated area or the colour may heal unevenly and you risk scarring and infection. Allow the wound to flake on its own. No makeup should be applied for 72 hours after the procedure. New mascara must be used after this 72 hour period.
- Do not expose the healing skin to direct sunlight, tanning beds, Jacuzzis, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, direct shower spray, hot water, skin creams or ointments other than what you have been instructed to use for two weeks following your procedure.
- If the area gets wet, gently pat dry using a clean tissue.
- Remember, your selected colour will be stronger and more sharply defined immediately after treatment but as the healing process occurs the colour will soften and lighten.
Long Term Care
- Use a good sunscreen. Sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics.
- If you are planning a chemical peel, MRI scan or other medical procedure, please inform your doctor of your permanent cosmetics.
Please inform the National Blood Service if you donate blood, as you may not be eligible to give blood for a year post procedure although this has recently been reduced to 4 months.
