- Your Permanent makeup will look amazing following your procedure. The color may be a little darker than desired; you may notice that the color will lighten about 30% during the first week of healing and about 10% during the second week of healing.
- You will need to apply a thin film of healing ointment (which we will provide) over your permanent makeup for 4 days, post procedure. Use Vitamin A & D the next 4 days.
- You will take a fresh cotton makeup remover pad, dampen it with water, gently squeeze it, and clean your permanent makeup gently but firmly by tapping the area. NEVER RUB OR SCRATCH YOUR TATTOO. Then take a fresh swab with a very small amount of ointment, and roll the swab over your permanent makeup, three times a day for 4 days.
- After you apply the ointment, you may take another swab or piece of tissue and wipe off excess ointment. Your permanent makeup only needs to remain moist, nor greasy, during the first healing week.
- During the week that your permanent makeup heals and lightens in color, you may notice some flaking. Do not pick at your new makeup. Allow the color to naturally exfoliate off on its own. If you pick or rub your new makeup you will have excess color loss.
- The reason you have color loss is because the top layer of our skin goes through a sloughing cycle, and when this happens, it will pull off the top layer of pigment with it. If you lose too much color, you may use conventional makeup pencils/powder to fill in with more color, as needed until you come back for a touch up application of color.
- The second color application is scheduled 4 to 8 weeks following your initial appointment.
**Schedule your follow up or touch up appointment 4 to 8 weeks following your initial procedure. After this period of time, the fee for the touch up (normally$70) will increase to $150.
- To help your permanent make up last longer, always wear sun protector over your new makeup. If you go swimming, wear a thin layer of Vaseline to protect it from chlorine and come back for a color boost every two years.
