Brows● Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before procedure● Do not tan two weeks prior or have sunburned face● Do not have any type of facial/peel 2 weeks prior to treatment● Discontinue Vitamin A/Retinol products ASAP● Do not work out the day of the procedure.● Do not have neuromodulators 3 weeks prior● Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior (natural blood thinners)● Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days before the procedure.
Day 0● Blot the area with the saline wipe that was given to you every 10 minutes to removelymphatic fluid.
Day 1-3 Repeat these steps 2 times daily AM & PM● Wash in small circles with Gentle cleanser provided in the CLEAR container● Pat dry with paper towel. (DO NOT use a towel as it harbors bacteria)● Apply a very thin coat of the gel in the TEAL container
Day 4-10● Continue washing 2x Daily Am & PM○ it is very important not to PICK, SCRATCH, OR REMOVE any scabbingthat may occur● Pat dry with paper towel● Apply VERY thin later of Aquaphor in the BLACK container.●If a crust/scab appears on the pigmented surface, DO NOT FORCE THE REMOVAL BYPICKING, SCRATCHING, OR WASHING!!! PIGMENT MAY BE REMOVED ALONG WITHTHE CRUST!!! The brows will start off dark and will flake over the ten days. Once the browshave flaked, it takes another few weeks for the colored area to heal. The area cansometimes be pink or hazy during the healing process. I call this the Ghost phase. It takesat least one follow-up for desired results. Yearly touch-ups are normally required dependingon how well your skin holds ink.
ShoweringShower with your back to the water to keep water, shampoo, and conditioner from gettinginto the pigmented areas. Have a light application of lubrication on the pigmented areaduring showers. Limit your shower time 5-10 minutes.
What to expect?These are just estimates on when they will happen considering everyones skin is different,But the expectations are the same.
Day 1-3The eyebrows are approximately 20-25% bolder and darker in width than they will be whenhealed. Expect light to moderate swelling and redness. The skin’s redness causes the colorof the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually seedue to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, whichbegins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow to flake awayand a more narrow appearance will result. New skin will heal over the pigmented area andresult in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrowsinitially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.
Week 1Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.
Week 2The skin begins to flake, peeling from the outside edges first.
Week 3Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until color clarifies.#GhostPhase
Week 4The color has lightened from its initial overly-dark appearance. For the next few days, thecolor may now be lighter than what the final color will be.Week 5-8The final color begins to stabilize and show through. The color will continue to soften as thehealing process completes
Day 0● Apply ice for the first 2-24 hours to reduce swelling.● Week 1+○ Keep moist with Aquaphor for the next 3-4 days, and then switch to lip balmor lipstick with an SPF of 15 or greater as the sun tends to fade lip colorquickly.○ Lips may appear to have too much color in the days following theprocedure.○ You may add makeup to soften the color.○ Scars on the lips from fever blisters cause pigment removal.○ Be careful as you pull on shirts or other garments over your face that youdon’t brush the new tattoo accidentally. Also, don’t put any makeup on aftertreatment. You might cause an infection or otherwise damage the tattoo.○ Avoid biting or licking your lips as much as possible, and make sure no foodor drink stays on there.○ Avoid Contact with Clothing, Makeup, Food and Sunlight.○ Drink out of Straws○ Take care not to expose your face to the sun for about two weeks after youget your tattoo. The sun will fade the pigment, which is still settling into yourskin. Even after the tattoos have healed, be consistent with applyingsunscreen to those areas of your face, to avoid fading.○ If you get cold sores or have ever had one in the past, you will need anantiviral prescription from your doctor before a lip procedure. Or Lysinewhich is sold over the counter. I suggest starting it As soon as you book,unless its months out.○ Lips can take 1-3 treatments for desired depth of color.○ Keeping lips moist daily will lengthen the time the pigment willlast…everyone heals different.
What to expect During Healing (Lips)● Day 1○ Swelling, tender, heavy thick lipstick look with a reddish brick coloraffect.For the first few days, the color is darker than it will appear whenhealed.● Day 2○ Slight swelling, reddish and tender with a slight metallic flavor.● Day 3○ Less swelling, thicker texture, sore, hot feeling before exfoliation with anorange color affect.● Day 4○ Exfoliation begins, very chapped lips. The color will become lighter as theepidermis sloughs off. It will appear that you have lost all of your color,however, when your lips have healed completely, the dermal layer willgradually become darker.● Day 5○ Very chapped but almost finished with first chapping stage.● Day 6○ A soft rich color begins to appear.● Days 7-13○ Lip color disappears and the “frosty” chapping stage begins as awhitish/grayish haze on the lips.● Day 14○ Color blooms from within more and more each day until day 21.(3 weeks)● Day 21○ Healing complete; the color you see is the color you have. Your lips willremain a bit dry for a month or two, use a good lip balm and they will returnto normal, but with full color!○ If a crust/scab appears on the pigmented surface,

One of the mostcommon questions we’re asked is what to expect during the healing process. While everyperson is different and some heal more quickly or slowly than others, here’s generally whatto expect. Temporary side effects from micro-pigmentation include but are not limited to:redness, swelling, puffiness, bruising, dry patches and tenderness. You should expect tolose approximately 1/3 of the initial color during the healing process. We have selected theoptimal pigments for you with this in mind. In approximately six days it may appear too light.After about 10 days, the color will show more. It will appear softer when completely healed.Day 1The eyes will be swollen and sore, like you have been crying, with a heavier eye makeuplook. For the first 3-4 days, the color is darker than it will appear when healed. Apply a verythin layer of the BLACK container sparingly to the treated areas with a clean Q-tip. Toomuch ointment makes the swollen area too wet. Use the ointment in the morning andevening. A third application is fine if needed, but don’t over use. Clean the eyes In theevening with clean water and a tissue.Day 2The eyelids are swollen for a few hours after waking up, still with heavier makeup look.When you wake up, refresh the treated area with cool water. Tissue dry and re-applyointment. The eyes will be swollen and sore but will get better throughout the day. In theevening, gently cleanse with cool water, tissue dry, and re-apply ointmentDay 3Swelling decreases but is not gone entirely. There is a tight feeling. The top layers of skinbegin to lift away. The soreness will become less as the treated area begins to exfoliate. Arough texture appears on the skin. Use a small amount of ointment if neededDay 4There is a pinching feeling. Some itching is normal as the skin begins to flake. When theeyeliner area begins toexfoliate, do not pick at it! Discontinue ointment. It will flake off with the movement of theeyeDay 5Color is somewhat grayish and will take a few more days to clarify to full color. Thepigmented area begins to shrink and soften in size and color over the next few days.Exfoliation completes. The color will appear a bit “frosty,” but will clarify in a few days#GhostPhase The color has lightened from its initial overly-dark appearance. For the nextfew days, the color may now be lighter than what the final color will be.Day 6The color has lightened from its initial overly-dark appearance. For the next few days, thecolor may now be lighter than what the final color will be.Day 10+The final color begins to stabilize and show through. The color will continue to soften as thehealing process completes
