COSMETIC TATTOO AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS
Cosmetic tattooing is a tattoo procedure that causes a mild wound to the skin that heals rather quickly when the proper aftercare is followed.
After the procedure, a layer of ointment will be applied - a thick enough layer to protect the newly tattooed area for the first 3 hours. This is important...it will keep the tattoo from drying out during the first few hours when it may be weeping. DO NOT TOUCH FOR 3 HOURS
After 3 hours gently wash the brows/eyeliner with a gentle soap or mild cleanser to remove the ointment. Pat Dry...gently...with a paper towel and apply a thin layer of the ointment given to you at your appointment. The point is to not let the area dry out completely and to let the body begin the healing process.
After the 3 hour beginning step: Wash the area morning and night and keep moist with the aftercare provided throughout the day...a thin layer. Do not let the area dry out. Keep the skin moisturized but not suffocated. Keep doing this until your brows/eyeliner are healed. (soft to touch and no flaking)
DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color.
No facials, Botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion/microneedling for 4 weeks.
Avoid direct sun exposure for 4 weeks after your procedure.
Avoid heavy sweating, hot showers, swimming and sauna for the first 10 days
