POST CARE LIPS:  Please read carefully

 

FIRST DAY- Use Ice cubes to ease any swelling, if necessary. With your aftercare cleansing solution, pat gently once a day. Use Coconut oil or Aquifer to keep lips moisturized during healing.

-Do not wear mascara on the day of the procedure.

-Have your eyes free of makeup and moisturizer.

-Do bring sunglasses to wear home. Eyes may be light sensitive.

-If you wear eyeglasses, please bring those to your appointment

-No botox injections 2 weeks prior to procedure in eye area only. 

-The skin must be free of all irritations including blemishes, eczema, and psoriasis.

AFTER CARE:

DAY 1 - The first 4 hours to clean the eye area in a padding motion, this is to absorb excess lymph fluid. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of any blood/lymphatic fluids and lessens the chance of scabbing.

DO NOT APPLY OINTMENT!

Eyes may vary from slightly puffy to swollen, ice packs can be applied for 10 minutes each hour for the first 4-8 hours following the procedure.

Day 2Wash your eyes gently in the morning and evening with lukewarm water. (Do not use rubbing motions, use dabbing motions)

Dry the area: Allow to air dry, before applying ointment. Apply the provided aftercare ointment on the treated area with a clean Q-tip or clean fingertips.

Day 3-6: The top layer of skin will begin to flake off in little stitch looking lines, although some people do not notice the exfoliation. DO NOT PICK THEM – you will pull pigment out and end up with uneven color. You may use small amounts of the aftercare moisturizer, however keep to a minimum. Less is more (once a day). 

When taking a shower, do not over steam your shower, tilt your head back when washing hair. 

After Day 7 - Any flaking that may occur should be complete. After pigment may appear light. Over the next few days pigment will settle and look more contrasted.
