AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

(PERMANENT EYELINER)

Always wash your hands before touching the treatment area.

Days 1-2:  Do not touch your eyeliner! If there seems to be a crust forming, you may use a dampened cotton pad to dab gently.

Days 3-7: Dab your eyeliner gently with a damp cotton pad, then allow it to dry completely before using a Q-tip to apply the ointment. Continue this regimen twice daily for 7 days.

For the first two days, you can gently apply disposable ice packs (or reusable ice packs covered with clean tissue) for 15 minutes at a time to reduce swelling. Sleeping with your head elevated will keep swelling to a minimum.

You can use a gentle cleanser on your face during the first week, but do not splash your face with water. Only clean the treated area with dampened cotton pads or cotton balls. If the area gets wet accidentally, dab it dry gently with a tissue.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE HEALING PROCESS:

  • Your enhancement will appear darker and sharper for 10-14 days, but will soften upon healing.

  • It is normal to experience swelling, redness, and itching, and/or eyelashes sticking together in the first few days.

  • Peeling and flaking is normal. DO NOT PICK, as this may cause scarring or infection.

  • Keep your hair, hands and pillow away from the eye area during the first week.

  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from sunlight and wind.

  • No contact lenses for 24 hours.

  • No eye makeup for 7 days.

  • Gentle moisturizer or eye cream is fine, but not directly on the treated area.

  • Loss of some eyelashes possible, but the lashes will return.

 

The following must be avoided for 14 days post-procedure:

  • Lasers, chemical peels, facial treatments or use of creams containing retinoids or acids

  • Hot sauna, hot baths, lengthy showers or jacuzzi use

  • Picking, peeling, or scratching the pigmented area

  • Heavy household tasks that involve a lot of airborne debris

  • Smoking or drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing

  • Touching the eyeliner except when cleaning it

  • Swimming (submerging or splashing the treated area)

  • Direct sun exposure and salon tanning

  • Eyelash tinting, perming, extensions, or lash growth serums

 

If you have any unexpected problems with the healing process, please contact your artist to discuss further instructions.
