Post Care Instructions

Lip Blushing Aftercare Instructions

  1. Your clients should apply aftercare ointment on their lips several times a day. My favorite balm is blistex medicated chapstick. It is readily available and has healing properties that I have found help cut healing time in almost half. 
  2. Follow the white t-shirt diet for at least 4-5 days. If it stains a white shirt, it can stain and change the color of your lips. So no yellow mustard, red wine, spaghetti sauce etc. Coffee through a straw is the safest bet. 
  3. Abstain from using soaps on or around the lips. Take care when washing the face to avoid the lip area, it is safest to use a washcloth for at least 10 days. This includes toothpastes and mouthwash so please tell your clients to apply aftercare balm liberally before and to use caution. 
  4. DO NOT PICK SCABS. If you pull scabs off your lips prematurely it risks pulling the newly implanted pigment with it. Your clients will return with uneven patches of color. 
  5. If your client is prone to cold sores, they must finish their antiviral medication regimen in order to reduce the chances of getting a cold sore. Although we can’t guarantee your client won’t get a cold sore, this will help cut the chances down dramatically. 
  6. Keep the area clean, this is an open wound. Do not touch with dirty fingers or allow animals to lick your lips. Avoid public swimming pools until fully healed. Avoid kissing until scabs have completely healed and flaked off. 
  7. Although it is difficult to keep the lips dry, try to drink through a straw and avoid direct water to the lips until they have completed their initial peel. 
  8. Clients should avoid using lipstick, gloss or previously used products on the lips. No tint, glitter or scent until the lips have completely healed. 
  9. Clients’ lips will be tender after the procedure, advising them to avoid overstretching their lips. Small bites of food for the first few days will be much more comfortable for them. Avoid spicy or salty foods as they can cause discomfort on the open wound. 
  10. Do not bleach your teeth for at least 2-3 weeks after treatment. 
  11. Avoid sunlight and tanning beds for at least 4 weeks. 

Microblading Aftercare Instructions

The better you follow these instructions the greater the likelihood your new brows will stay beautiful longer. Keep in mind these are not suggestions but rules to follow during the healing process. 

What to expect: Your brows will be extra dark the first day or two. They will start to fade and will fade up to 50%. You may notice swelling, this should only last 24-48 hours. On about day 3 you may start to notice flaking or fading of the ahir stroke or pigment. Don’t freak out! This is normal and why the touch up is so important. 

  • Do not pick or scratch brows for 7 days
  • Do not sleep directly on your brows for 7 days
  • Do not swim (pools, hot tubs, lakes or oceans) for 7 days
  • Do not exercise for 24 hours
  • Do not receive chemical peels or microdermabrasion in the brow area
  • Do not apply make up to the brows for 7 days. Keep the area around your brows clean!
    • Wearing makeup is totally fine, but you will want to make sure bacteria isn’t getting into your healing brows. Just be careful around the brow area. 
  • Do not allow heavy sun exposure for at least 2 weeks. 
  • Do not schedule a botox appointment for at least 7 days

The best way to retain clean hair strokes and pigment is to leave them alone as best you can. Rinse your brows lightly with baby shampoo morning and night and apply the aftercare very sparingly after each rinse. If you run out of the precis balm, I would use A&D ointment or neosporin. Lightly apply ointment with a clean cotton swab to the brow area (dab, don’t rub)

When the brows start to scab, don’t pick at them, if you pick at them the color can come off with the scab. Once in the morning and once at night, use a baby wipe to gently wipe (don’t rub) across each brow. 

Exfoliate before you come to your touch up. 

REMEMBER this is a 2 session process. Do not expect that your brows will be perfect after one session. This is why touching them up is so important. Some clients will require a 3rd appointment depending on their individual needs. This will need to be done no later than 12 weeks from your initial appointment.

Tattoo Removal Aftercare Instructions

It is critical to follow all aftercare instructions to prevent complications, scarring and to achieve optimum results. Please read carefully. 

  1. KEEP AREA CLEAN and open to the air. Do not cover with a band-aid or anything else, leave open to air. Air/oxygen provides good and faster healing. CLEANSE THE AREA 4x a day with saline. Dampen a paper towel or cotton round with saline and blot the area 4x daily. Make sure you wash your hands directly before cleansing the area. 
  2. DO NOT SOAK the treated area in water. You can shower as normal but keep the area out of the shower spray the best you can and do not let the area stay wet for more than a few minutes. It is best to keep it dry but if you do get it wet gently pat dry. 
  3. NO BATHING, SWIMMING, SAUNAS, HOT TUBS, TANNING, OR EXERCISE. NO EXCEPTIONS. 
  4. DO NOT disrupt the scabbing process (i.e., no picking, scratching, etc.) All scabbing needs to fall off naturally. If you force or pick a scab off you will disrupt the process and possibly cause scarring. It is critical to keep the scabs on as long as possible to achieve optimum results. 
  5. TREAT AREA WITH TLC. DO NOT DO ANYTHING THAT COULD CAUSE ISSUES OR PROBLEMS TO THE TREATED AREA. 
  6. ONCE ALL SCABBING HAS NATURALLY FALLEN OFF, apply one drop of Li-FT Heal Care Oil 3 to 4 times throughout the day for a minimum of 4 weeks, or until lightning session. DO NOT start applying the Li-FT Heal Care Oil UNTIL all scabbing has naturally and completely fallen off. It is our goal to keep the area as dry as possible until all scabs have naturally fallen off. If you do not have Li-FT Heal Care Oil, you can substitute with Vitamin E Oil. 
  7. LIPS please drink all liquids with a straw until all scabbing has naturally fallen off. Brush with Toms of Maine or Classic Crest (no whitening, no peroxide toothpastes. Cut food into small bites… no biting into a sandwich. Try to keep mouth expressions to a minimum.
  • It is important to the process and integrity of the skin that 8 full weeks of healing take place before another lightening session can be done. No exceptions. 
  • Lightening unwanted pigment can be a long process and patience is required. This is true whether you are choosing a saline lightening product or laser. Please be patient and give the process a fair chance to work. Expect visible and wanted results in 2 to 5 sessions. How many sessions needed will depend on how saturated the pigment is, how deep it was implanted, the location, the skin type and how much needs to be lightened for the desired result. In many cases only a percentage of the pigment needs to be lightened and then we can continue the correction process by color correcting or color shifting. In those cases where we have pigment continue the correction process by color correcting or color shifting. In those cases where we have pigment misplaced or in an unwanted area, color correcting will not be an option and lightening as much of the pigment as possible will be our ultimate goal. 
  • Results cannot be foreseen, predicted or guaranteed. 
  • If you have any questions or concerns please call us. If at any time you have any green or yellow pus in the area of the lightening procedure, or any concerns at all during the healing process please call us immediately.
