After-Care

After-Care

– PERMANENT COSMETICS/MICROBLADING/PARAMEDICAL TATTOOING/REJUVAPEN –

Permanent Cosmetics and Micro Pigment Implantation is a two or more step process. The results cannot be determined until after the touch up applications. We perform this service to the best of our ability, and to achieve the desired results, your cooperation is required by following our after-care procedures that are provided to you after your procedure.

After your treatment more than likely there will be some swelling. You may use an ice pack as needed but no more than 10-15 minutes at a time.

The tattooed area will be dark for the first several days and will fade. Your Permanent Makeup will look much darker, the lines much “thicker,” and overall a bit more dramatic for the first 3-7 days following your procedure. This is very normal and very temporary.

Your Permanent Makeup may also fade more than you expected after your procedure. You may wonder if this is normal. I would not classify it as “normal” per se, but it can and does happen. Remember that Permanent Makeup is an additive process, requiring two and sometimes even three sessions to perfect. DO NOT be alarmed by fading after the first application. The final color cannot be judged until at least 3 weeks after the touch-up applications are completed. This is the reason touch-ups are required!

All Permanent Cosmetics, Microblading, and Paramedical Tattoo Procedures

– Very Important – Please Read Carefully –

DO NOT:

  • Rub skin when washing your face for at least 10 days.
  • Pick or scratch tattooed area.
  • Wash, scrub, pick, or get any chemicals on the area until it is healed.
  • Wear makeup on tattooed area until the area has healed completely.
  • Wear sunscreen, put harsh chemicals, or apply Retin-A on the tattooed area. Doing so will cause your color to fade and discolor.
  • Put anything at all on the tattooed area except the specified moisturized your technician has approved for you for your particular procedure! That includes lotions, tanning creams, makeup, and antibiotic ointment, Retin-A, water, or terry cloth towels.
  • Submerge in water.

  • Inform your doctor if you plan on having any kind of laser procedure on your skin after you have had Permanent Cosmetics so that he/she can cover the tattooed area and it will not be affected. Lasers will damage Permanent Cosmetics and possibly remove portions of it.

  • An ice bag should be applied for the first few hours, 10 minutes on and 10 minutes off following the procedure.
  • You may find the area slightly puffy for the first few mornings. Either thinly sliced cucumbers or an ice bag placed on the eyelid on the second day for a few minutes in the morning along with sleeping somewhat propped up on your back will make a difference if you know that you have a tendency to swell.

XILED INK® TATTOO FADING AND REMOVAL SYSTEM AFTER-CARE:

Be sure to follow the complete after-care instructions provide to you by your Permanent Cosmetic Professional after your treatment.

A scab will form and must retain intact until it falls off naturally. If the scab is removed prematurely it may affect the outcome of the procedure. Until the scab exfoliates naturally, we recommend an appropriate bandage on areas of the body where clothing contact is unavoidable. Do not soak the scab in water; bathing can be conducted as normal, but do not scrub or vigorously wipe the scab to dry. It is very important not to touch or pick at the area after treatment. The scab absolutely must exfoliate naturally. After the scab exfoliates, you will need to apply the vitamin E that your provider gives you.

REJUVAPEN AFTER-CARE:

Be certain to adhere to the following post-treatment instructions provided to you by your Permanent Cosmetic Professional.

72 HOURS AFTER TREATMENT:

It is recommended that you use the Rejuvapen Post Treatment Kit for 72 hours for best results.

  • Clean: Use a gentle cleanse and tepid water to cleanse the face for the following 72 hours and gently dry the treated skin. Always make sure that your hands are clean when touching the treated area.
  • Heal: Serum antioxidants are recommended post-treatment as the properties are ideal to help heal the skin. These products can help soothe the skin and lessen irritation.
  • Hydrate: Following your Rejuvapen treatment, your skin may feel drier than normal. Hyaluronic Acid is an ideal ingredient to hydrate and restore the skin back to perfect balance.
  • Stimulate: In the days following your Rejuvapen treatment, and as the skin starts to regenerate, collagen stimulating peptides are ideal to continue the stimulation.
  • Makeup: It is recommended that makeup should not be applied for 24 to 72 hours after the procedure. Do not apply any makeup with a makeup brush, especially if it is not clean.
  • Protect: Immediately after the procedure, apply a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen.

AVOID THE FOLLOWING FOR 3-7 DAYS AFTER TREATMENT:

It also dramatically improves the appearance of aging, damaged, and post-procedure skin with a highly concentrated formula that transforms skin cells to a younger state and fortifies the skin’s ability to repair DNA damage that causes signs of aging. Recovery Serum enhances the skin’s natural process of regeneration and repair. It stimulates collagen production, healthy circulation, antioxidant activity, and cellular renewal. With regular use, fine lines and wrinkles will be diminished, and skin will look and feel softer and firmer. The soothing formula helps relieve irritation from bruising after cosmetic procedures, reduces the appearance of broken capillaries, and greatly decreases post-procedure redness.

Daily use of Active Serum will produce a firmer, smoother complexion with brighter, more even skin tone, diminished fine lines and wrinkles, and reduced or eliminated sun/age spots and hyperpigmentation.
