Cosmetic Tattooing Care and Information
Proper care following your procedure is important and required to achieve optimum results. Keep in mind that some intensity of color
will be lost, and /or the color may heal unevenly. This is normal for some procedures, especially after the initial application. This is the
reason for the follow up appointment, to fill in any light areas, to go a little darker or thicker if desired, and to adjust shape or color if
needed. Please read and follow the directions provided.
1. Wash your hands before touching any treated area.
2. Cool packs (not frozen) may be used to help reduce swelling. Dampen paper towels or cotton pads with filtered/bottled water and
place in the fridge for 30 minutes..
..10 minutes on and 10 minutes off. Cooling the area is most beneficial the first 24 hours. Sleeping
slightly elevated may also help in the reduction of swelling.
3. Blotting your procedure.
We have created a wound and all wounds weep body fluids (some will weep more and for a longer
period than others). Blotting off these fluids and excess pigment is critical to a good result and optimum color retention. If these fluids
are allowed remain on the tattooed area and accumulate, you will get heavier scabbing. Heavy scabbing can pull out the pigment
which will result in light spots and unevenness of color. Dampen a paper towel with bottle or filtered water...may use sterile water or
sterile eyewash as well. Blot your new procedure every 15 minutes upon leaving. Continue until weeping has subsided. The
following three days please blot the area periodically throughout the day. If you have eyebrow hair please make sure you are getting
beyond the hair and actually blotting the tattooed skin. It can be a tender area to blot but it is important that you do.
4. Washing your procedure. Use a mild cleanser on and around the procedure area. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing
acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliates. Dial Soap, Cataphyll, and Neutrogena are good choices. Use a very light touch
cleansing your procedure twice a day. Make sure you rinse off all cleanser. Pat dry. Wait 15 minutes before applying ointment after
getting the procedure wet. Never put ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.
Showering- Do not take an exceptionally hot shower and
keep bathroom doors open as to NOT cause a steam effect. Keep your face/procedure out of the water while you do your other shower
"stuff* first. At the very end of your shower wash your hair and rinse back away from your face. Wash your face either avoiding
procedure area or over procedure area with a very light touch Do not let the shower spray hit you directly in the face.
face/procedure will only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower.
5. Ointment. ONLY USE THE OINTMENT I PROVIDE FOR YOU ...NOTHING ELSE!!! Eyebrows, no ointment for the first 24
hours. Apply a thin, light coat of ointment 3 or 4 times a day for the remaining of the healing process (6-7 days). Always blot of any
of the prior ointment and area before applying new layer of ointment….this applies to all areas. Although it is important to use
ointment, using it excessively can starve the skin of air and can result in pigment loss during the healing period. So use it but use
sparingly, just enough to moisten. ALLERGIC REACTION IS EXTREMELY RARE BUT POSSIBLE. IF YOU NOTICE ANY
BUMPS OR RASH OR THINK YOU MAY BE HAVING A REACTION...STOP USING OINTMENT IMMEDIATELY, CLEANSE
AREA AND CALL THE STUDIO.
6 . Absolutely NO pet grooming, gardening, dusting, or anything that causes dust, dirt and dander for a minimum of 72 hours. Waiting
5 full days is best. Wearing glasses outdoors is a good way to protect healing eyeliner. NO EXERCISING FOR 10 DAYS..NO
EXCEPTIONS. DO NOT DO ANY ACTIVITY THAT CAUSES SWEAT IN THE AREA OF THE PROCEDURE OR YOUR
FACE TO HEAT UP AND TURN RED. ABSOLUTLY NO LAKE ACTIVITIES. DO NOT GO TO THE LAKE OR BEACH.
NO HORSEBACK RIDING, NO CAMPING OR RIDING ATVS. NO NOTHING OF THIS SORT. DON'T' DO IT! STAY
OUT OF THE SUN! KEEP IT PROTECTED AND KEEP IT CLEAN! TLC FOR YOUR NEW PROCEDURE.
7. During your healing process DO NOT expose your new procedures to chemicals, hot tubs, saunas, direct shower spray, hot water,
salt water, chlorinated pools, lakes, or ponds. Direct sun exposure and tanning beds should be avoided indefinitely ....both are
counterproductive to the cosmetic procedure.
8. Absolutely NO topical makeup on the healing procedure(s) for a minimum of 5 days. Topical makeup is bacterial and your new
procedures(s) need adequate time to heal to avoid irritation and/or infection. No makeup while scabbing is still seen. You may apply
your makeup around the new procedure area but avoid applying ON the healing areas. No tweezing or waxing the eyebrows for 10
full days. NO FACIAL, PEELS OR ANY OF THAT FACE STUFF FOR TWO FULL WEEKS!
Some tenderness, puffiness (even bruising), redness, and itching is quite normal for the tattoo healing process. DO NOT PICK,
PEEL, OR SCRATCH the treated area as this could result in your color healing uneven, as well as the risk of scarring and infection.
10. Lastly....relax. Don't worry about a thing. It's just a tattoo that will lighten, soften and heal in a matter of days. Do exactly as I
have advised you to do OR not to do and all heals well. Complications are extremely rare.
EYELASH EXTENSION TIPS AND CARE
Prior to Your Appointment
•If you have extremely fair eyelashes we recommend you have them tinted before your eyelash extension appointment
•Please remove any mascara.
•Do not perm or curl your eyelashes before your eyelash extension appointment
•If you wear contact lenses please bring your contact lens case as your lenses will need to be removed.
After Your Appointment
•When drying your face do not rub instead blot your face and apply gentle pressure to your closed eyes then allow the extensions to dry naturally. Do not dry with towel or hair dryer.
•Do not perm or curl the extensions using clamp eyelash curlers
•Avoid wearing mascara since this will lessen the life of your extensionss
•Do not use eye make-up remover that contains oil products.
•Keep the area around your eyes clean. Do not avoid normal cleaning, just be gentle
•Use cotton swabs to remove make up by working gently around your eyelashes
•Be gentle with your new lashes, do not get them wet for the first 24 hours after application, refrain from touching or rubbing them. The golden rule is: look but don’t touch.
•Avoid swimming, steam rooms, saunas, or extreme heat for 48 hours after application.
•Do not use an eyelash curler on the lash extensions or try to perm or tint them. This will break the bond on the extensions and might damage your natural lashes.
•Avoid rubbing your eyes roughly when cleaning your face and avoid running water directly on your lashes
•Avoid sleeping face down to prevent pressing against your eyelashes.
•Be very careful when removing makeup in the eye area. Gently go over the eye area, sweep up and away from the lash extensions.
•Using mascara on eyelash extensions is not recommended. If you must wear mascara, only use water-based mascara, please do not use waterproof or oil-based mascara as removing this is difficult to do without damaging your natural eyelashes.
•Keep an eyelash comb handy to straighten out any loose, stray lashes. Comb them carefully and very gently only when needed.
•Do not pull on any loose extensions or you risk plucking out your natural eyelashes. Do not attempt to remove the lash extensions yourself; allow the extensions to fall off naturally or schedule an appointment to have them professionally removed.
