I cannot stress enough how important this part of the overall process is! How well you take care of your permanent makeup following your service will play a HUGE role in color retention.
Before your leave my studio, I will provide you with an aftercare instruction card and goodie bag, with everything you need to care for your new brows, lips, or eyeliner. I understand that the healing process can be a bit confusing and scary. During this time your treated area may be tender, appear faded, or be a little flaky.
I recommend “hydrated healing” for all permanent makeup services. This means washing the treated area morning and night, then applying ointment, for 7 days after your service.
In addition to the hydrated healing routine, there some things you should avoid post-treatment - please find that list below. Remember that your treated area is essentially an open wound, and you want to protect it from bacteria.
│ FOR 14 DAYS POST-PROCEDURE AVOID│
Direct sun exposure
Makeup on the treated area
Facial cleansers and lotions on the treated area
Heavy exercise and excessive sweating
Soaking in shower, pools, hot tubs, saunas, and lakes
Facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and regenerative/anti-aging creams
