Avoid direct contact with water on the treated area for 10 DAYS.
No working out or sweating for 10 days. Sweat is salty and it can fade or discolor the treated area.
For the first 10 days apply a generous layer of petroleum jelly to the area prior to showering with clean fingers or a clean q-tip to prevent moisture, soaps, or shampoos from penetrating the skin.
After showering, gently remove the petroleum jelly by blotting with a clean, dry tissue or soft terry towel. DO NOT rub or otherwise exfoliate the area.
Absolutely nothing is to be applied to the treated area for 10 days following the procedure. NO moisturizer, NO makeup, NO eyebrow pencils, etc.
For the first 10 days it is extremely important to touch the area minimally and with squeaky clean hands. It is crucial that you do your job during aftercare to prevent infection, and for a natural-looking healed result.
Absolutely NO rubbing, scratching, or picking at the treated area. Let any scabbing or flaking exfoliate naturally. Picking can cause scarring and as you pull healing skin away you may also remove pigment in the process resulting in an uneven, patchy healed result.
Avoid scrubbing the area for 30 days after the procedure. After 10 days you may gently wash the area with clean fingers and you may apply makeup and eyebrow products if desired.
NO swimming until the area is completely healed. Salt water and chlorine can cause pigment to fade or change color. We recommend applying petroleum jelly to the area prior to swimming even after the area is completely healed to help prevent salt water or chlorine from penetrating the skin.
It takes 2 appointments to achieve the finished product. Please plan on scheduling your touch-up appointment within the first 6 months following the initial procedure.
