Lip Blush After Care Instructions:
The color of your permanent makeup procedure will be 50% darker immediately after the treatment. Do not worry it will start to get lighter between 4-10 days this is perfectly normal and the true healed colour will take about 4-6 weeks to come through.
In some cases, it can look like the permanent makeup pigment colour has disappeared which is due to the healing layers of the skin obscuring the colour temporarily. At this point, you just have to let it develop and certainly do not have any further permanent cosmetics work carried out during the 4- 6 weeks period.
Your skin will be temporarily sensitized after the treatment and you should adhere to the following instructions for the next seven (7) days. This will help avoid infection and will allow time for the skin to recover.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
• If you apply makeup during the 7 days following the treatment, you do so at your own risk.
• You can cleanse the treatment area two or three times a day if needed, using warm water, and a lint free wipe.
• Clients who have been prescribed an antibiotic cream should follow the instructions of their medical practitioner.
• Apply aftercare ointment with a cotton swab only (no fingers) for the first 2-3 days.
• Keep moist at all times with a good lip balm (Blistex, Burts Bees, Chapstick) during the healing process.
• Healing will take up to four weeks and it is perfectly normal for the treated area to scab. These scabs will fall off within a few days.
• It is normal for the color to fade during the two weeks following the treatment.
WHAT NOT TO DO:
During the post treatment period, please try to avoid the following:
• Spicy and salty food
• Using soaps, cleansers, creams or makeup on the treated area.
• Facial treatments, waxing and using any form of bleach.
• Any abrasive products, rough towels or similar.
• DO NOT TOUCH or PICK the small scabs that may appear after the treatments. Let them slough off naturally, otherwise you may disrupt the pigment retention.
• Taking hot baths, saunas, steam, swimming pools, salt water, and any direct shower spray on the treated area. If area does get wet, just pat dry with a Kleenex.
• Sunbathing, and tanning beds.
• You may shower or bathe normally, but avoid getting any soaps, shampoos or other cleansers on the treated area for the first five days as they can be detrimental to the bonding process that must take place for the pigment to stabilize in the dermis.
• Exposure to the sun over time can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment. Once completely healed, you may apply lip care with SPF on the treated area.
• Glycolic acid, microdermabrasion, and chemical face peel products must be kept away from the tattooed area as continued use could lighten the pigment.
• If you are having laser resurfacing or laser hair removal after your tattoo has healed, please inform the laser technician. Continue at your own discretion. Laser procedures may darken, lighten, or discolor the tattooed area.
• Once the treated area is completely healed, any changes or additions that need to be made can be done at your follow-up appointment no sooner than 6-8 weeks later.
• Should an infection occur, seek medical attention.
