Eyeliner - Aftercare
Lacey will provide you with ointment at the end of your appointment.
Swelling and redness is to be expected immediately after the procedure as the skin is very thin in this area (it will give off the appearance of as you have been crying). Itching is also normal. The length of time it takes to heal varies from person to person. The swelling shall subside in a few hours. It takes an average about 4-5 days for the scabs to naturally fall off. Your true color will not be apparent until the 4-6 week mark.
• Appointment (Day 1)
After the procedure, cleansing should be done by compresses with the water wipes provided for the first 4 hours to clean the eye area in a padding motion, this is to absorb excess lymph fluid. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of any blood/lymphatic fluids and lessens the chance of scabbing. DO NOT APPLY OINTMENT.
Evening: Wash your eyes gently with lukewarm water before bedtime (Do not use rubbing motions, use dabbing motions)
Dry the area: Allow to air dry, or dry with a paper towel. DO NOT APPLY OINTMENT.
Eyes may vary from slightly puffy to swollen, heavy lids; light sensitive and possibly bloodshot eyes. Sleeping in a slightly elevated position can also reduce any residual swelling of the eyes.
Ice packs can be applied for 10 minutes each hour for the first 4-8 hours following the procedure. The ice is used to reduce swelling and provide comfort. If you experience any residual swelling the following day, you may ice them again. After the first 24 hours the use of ice is no longer beneficial.
•(Days 1 - 7)
The treated area may experience the following symptoms for 1 to 10 days after the treatment, which are all common and will dissipate in a short period of time.
Dryness and Itching
• Day 2
Clean: Wash your eyes gently in the morning and evening with lukewarm water. (Do not use rubbing motions, use dabbing motions)
Dry the area: Allow to air dry, or dry with a paper towel before applying ointment. Apply the provided ointment on the treated area with a clean q-tip or clean fingertips.
• Day 3 - 7
DO NOT WASH
Apply Ointment: Apply ointment sparingly 2 to 3 times a day. Use the Q-tip in a gentle dabbing motion as not to disrupt the pigmentation bonding process. This will keep the area moist and accelerate the healing. If scabs form, keep ointment on them at all times. Do not rub the area in any way.
• Day 1-2: Eyes will be swollen and perhaps a bit ‘crusty’ upon waking. The swelling will reduce after being in an upright position and from blinking and increased circulation to the area. Avoid heavy lifting, physical exertion, and crying.
• Day 2: Eyes will be less swollen, but will feel tight. The lash area will feel sore if touched.
• Day 3-4: The top layer of skin will begin to flake off in little stitch looking lines, although some people do not notice the exfoliation. DO NOT PICK THEM – you will pull pigment out and end up with uneven color. Blinking helps eliminate the small pieces of pigment that have detached. It is important not to pick at it or rub the eyes.
• Day 7-9: All shedding should be complete. You are safe to shower facing the shower head. During this time, the pigment may appear to have vanished, this is a normal part of the healing process, and the pigment will re-emerge.
• Day 10: Pigment, if it faded, should have returned. What you see now is very close to the healed result. If it is not as you like, please wait the final 8 weeks and return for a touch-up procedure.
Healing usually takes 5 to 7 days to heal
The following must be avoided during healing process:
Direct water on the eyeliner and the use of cleaners, soaps and heavy creams. (makeup wipes will be your go to this week.)
Do not use contact lenses for 48 hours.
Do not use mascara until outer healing is complete. Do not use old tubes of mascara. Replace old with new.
Application of any makeup directly for 10 days.
Do not use a eyelash curler the day of the procedure.
Do not use saline eye drops/wash or mascara until healed
Do not rub, pick or scratch, as the color may heal unevenly and you could risk infection, which in turn could lead to scarring. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away.
Avoid direct sun exposure/tanning or tanning beds for 4 weeks after procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors and/or big sunglasses.
Eyes are sensitive to pet dander, gardening, dust and dirty hands. Sunglasses add wonderful protection to sun.
Avoid heavy sweating, exercise, sports, sauna, swimming, steam rooms, jacuzzi, and long hot showers for 10 days. Eyes heal very well. However, they are exposed to the possibility of a secondary infection like conjunctivitis. Seek medical attention if needed.
Avoid use of skincare or cosmetics on the treated area.
Avoid using exfoliants, acids such as glycolic acid, alpha hydroxy acids lactic acid, salicylic acid, and Vitamin A on or around the tattooed area for 30 days. (Causes premature fading)
Use a fresh pillowcase. Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.
Do not schedule any facials, microdermabrasion, microneedling, peels or laser treatments for at least 4 weeks. They can darken/lighten or distort the pigment.
Avoid drinking alcohol in excess, as it may lead to slow healing of wounds.
Avoid driving in open air vehicles such as convertibles, boats, bicycles, or motorcycles.
Do not performing tasks related to heavy household cleaning such as garage or storage cleaning where there is a lot of airborne debris–now is not the time!. Care must be taken to keep the eyes clean and free of bacteria.
If needed, over-the-counter Tylenol is recommended for temporary relief of pain.
After the healing process your eyeliner will appear lighter in color because of natural skin regeneration. Often, even with proper care, some areas may look uneven or patchy. It is normal because your natural skin regeneration is not a process that your artist can control. That’s why a complimentary follow up is included after 6-12 weeks from the initial session to fine tune your investment and assure that richness of color, symmetry, density in the shape and desired effect is achieved.
Healed results vary per individual client. We have no control over what occurs during the healing process. After the second session (touch-up) additional sessions may be required to obtain optimal results. Additional charges may apply.
Following the proper post-care is necessary to achieve the best results. When scheduling an appointment for a cosmetic tattoo keep in mind the healing time of the procedure will depend on your body’s regeneration, age, immune system and lifestyle.
Long Term Care
You’ll find that your cosmetic tattoo will last between 3 - 5 years after their complimentary touch up session.
Future touch-up appointments are required to maintain their shape and depth of color. If you do not maintain, the color will lighten over time. Fading greatly depends on your skin type, lifestyle, sun exposure, pigment color used, broken capillaries, and iron deficiency. We suggest that if you want to maintain your eyeliner looking its best, that you plan on scheduling a touch up once a year for best results.
The regular use of eye drops or other preparations instilled in the eyes will cause premature fading of permanent eyeliner.
Exposure to the sun and tanning beds can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment.
Avoid using chemical exfoliants or heavy creams on the eyes, as it will cause fading.
Do not laser near your eye are (IPL). Some lasers distort the color causing it to darken or lighten.
Additional eye makeup application may still be required post tattoo to achieve your desired look.
If you are planning a laser procedure or MRI scan, inform the technician of your cosmetic tattoo.
The use of Retin-A/Tretinoin, hydroquinone, or any other rapid skin exfoliation used regularly on any area surrounding the eye area will cause your cosmetic tattoo to fade prematurely.
The use of chemical peels, acid peels, lightening or any brightening product that targets hyper-pigmentation used regularly near the eye area can cause permanent eyebrows to fade prematurely.
The use of exfoliating cleansers, scrubs, cleansers with acne fighting ingredients or “acid” in the name will cause rapid exfoliation of the skin containing the pigment and will increase odds of premature fading.
