Post-Procedure Guidelines for Permanent Makeup
1. Do not pick, scratch or peel the treated area. You can cause an infection or pull the pigment from the skin.
2. Apply the provided ointment to the treated area 3-5 times a day until it has healed. Always use a clean cotton swab and apply the ointment sparingly.
3. Ice packs or Benadryl (with your physician's approval) can be used to control swelling.
4. Do not use harsh soap to cleanse the area. We recommend a mild pure soap with no additives.
5. Do not expose the area to direct sunlight, tanning beds, hot tubs, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, hot water, skin creams, ointments, or lotions other than what you have been instructed to use for 2 weeks following the procedure.
6. Do not apply makeup for 5 days following the procedure, then start with new makeup. Do not use your old makeup after the procedure.
7. Do not dye your lashes or brows for 7 days post-procedure.
8. Do not resume any type of hair removal in the treated areas for 5 days post-procedure.
9. Do not use chemical peels, tretinoin (Retin-A), topical steroids, or products that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) or other acids on the treated area, as this will cause the color to fade. Use a good sunblock on the treated areas for the same reason.
10. After a lip procedure, avoid hot or spicy foods, drink through a straw, and cut your food into bite-sized pieces for 7 days.
11. Do not use whitening toothpaste for 7 days following a lip procedure, as this can cause pigment loss.
12. Sleep with your head slightly elevated for 48 hours after the procedure. 1

Additioanl Post Procedure Advice and After Care Instructions
Proper care following your intradermal cosmetic enhancement is necessary to achieve the best results. Keep in mind that in many cases some unevenness of color is to be expected. This is the purpose of the touchup visit. Continue to follow your Pre-Procedure Advise and Treatment Instructions for the next few days or up to a week.
Day 1 Swelling, tender. heavy, thick. lipstick look-red brick color effect.
Day 2 Slight swelling, reddish, tender, slight metallic flavor.
Day 3 Less swelling. thicker texture, sore hot feeling before exfoliation.
Day 4 Exfoliation — Very chapped feeling .
Day 5 Very chapped but almost finished with ill chapping stage.
Day 6 See soft rich color.
7 Lip color will almost or totally disappear- frosty stage begins. 2nd chapping stage begins, a whitish, grayish haze appears.
Day 14 Color "blooms" from within more and more each day until day 21.
Day 21 The healing process is complete. The color you see is the color you have. However, lips remain dry for a month or two. Use a good lip balm and they will return to normal.
Day 1 Swollen. like you've been crying, heavy eye makeup look.
Day 2 Swollen. usually for a few hours after waking up, still heavy eye makeup look.
Day 3 Less Swollen- tight- pigment begins to lift away from skin.
Day 4 Pinching- some itching is normal- skin will begin to flake. DO NOT pick at it.
Day 5 Blinking movement of the eye usually removes all sloughed tissue and pigment by this day. Color is somewhat grayish — will take a few more days to clarify color.
Day 1 The brows are approximately 20-25% darker and bolder in width than they will be healed. Your skin is red under the pigment. which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the brow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days will cause excess pigment surrounding the pigment to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result. New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don't be concerned that your brows initially appear darker and heavier in size and shape that the size you desire. This is part of the healing process.
Day 2 Condition remains the same
Day 3 Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.
Day 4 The skin begins to flake peeling from the outside edges first.
Day 5 Color finishes flaking off and the appears softer and a greyer effect for a few days until the color clarifies.
LONG TERM CARE AND ADVICE

3. If you donate blood, it is recommended by the American Red Cross to not donate for one year following the completion of any cosmetic intradernial enhancement.
