*Avoid moisture to the lips such as Hot Soup, Hot Cocoa, or Hot Coffee for 5 days. Drink everything through a straw until lips completely peel. DO NOT stretch the lips.
THIS IS A MUST. TANNING WILL LIGHTEN ANY PIGMENTED AREA OVER TIME, SO USE A SUNBLOCK WHEN TANNING. FAILURE TO FOLLOW PRE OR POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS MAY CAUSE LOSS OF PIGMENT, DISCOLORATION OR INFECTION.
Remember, colors appear brighter, darker, and more sharply defined immediately following the procedure. As the area flakes off, the color will soften. Some lips will not see good color until the 14th-21st day or so, be patient. Lips heal in approximately 4 weeks
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What does 'Peel' mean?
Your lips have been punctured with a needle thousands of times and are now wounded. There can be redness, swelling, and/or bruising to the lips. As your lips heal they will peel or slough off dead skin.
Average healing is 4-7 days. The next day can have the most swelling. If you know you swell easily, plan for 3 days of swelling. Each day swelling will be less. The older you are the longer it takes to heal. Add a few days if you know you are a slow healer or diabetic. The following will affect how quickly or slowly you heal. Diet, stress, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, age, general health, sleep/fatigue. The more fatigued you are the lower your immune system is and infection is more likely to occur.
Ice can be applied around the area but not directly on the area. No ice directly on lips. Sleeping slightly elevated will also help prevent swelling.
WHAT WILL IT FEEL LIKE?
Seal lips with ointment first. Put cottonballs in gum areas so toothbrush will not rub against the lips. No whitening toothpaste (during the healing process). Use a small amount of toothpaste. Take a straw with you to the bathroom to retrieve water to swish with.
Sun exposure and tanning beds fade your color. After lips have healed, use a lip balm with an SPF of at least 30.
You have six months from the initial procedure date to have your free spot touch-up for each area or to purchase full touch-ups for lips $75.

IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING PERMANENT MAKEUP PROCEDURE:
You will need to flush the eyes with your eyewash a MINIMUM of 2 to 3 times the day of the procedure and 2 to 3 times the day after the procedure. Make sure you have your ointment on your eyes when you flush.
After the procedure, apply pressure to the brows for one hour to stop any bleeding you may have (twenty (20) seconds pressure every fifteen (15) minutes).
No ice directly on the eyes or brows. (pulls pigment from the area), just around the eye and brow area.
Extra strength Tylenol can be used for the sunburn feeling (as directed).
Keep a thin layer of Bacitracin ointment on the eyes, brows until they completely flake/peel. Apply the ointment morning, noon and night.
Absolutely NO SCRUBBING the area. Allow it to flake off on its own.Absolutely no soaps, cleansing creams, or chemicals on the area. Wash your face carefully avoiding the area or areas for 5 days. Avoid the sun and tanning beds for seven (7) days.
Do not stand in front of a hot shower and let the water hit your face. Avoid water on the new pigmented areas as much as possible, the five days days. (when showering, washing face, etc. have ointment on the pigmented area to protect the from water).
After the brows and eyeliner flake/peel you may start applying your make-up to the brow and eye areas.
You have six months from the initial procedure date to have your free spot touch-up for each area or to purchase full eyeliner/brow touch-ups for $50.
