Precision Pout Aftercare
For 10 days following the tattoo procedure:
-Wash the site gently and apply Beauty Brew multiple times per day.
-Wash the site gently with liquid soap and water using your hands only.
-Blot the area dry. Do not rub.
-Massage Beauty Brew in gently for 15 seconds
-Sleep slightly elevated for the first few nights to reduce swelling
-After initial healing (7-10days) use chapstick with sun block over the tattooed area to preserve color.
The continued use of at least SPF 30 sunblock with UVA and UVB protection will help to prevent fading.
-Schedule and go to your complimentary touch up appointment, which should be scheduled to occur between 4 and 8 weeks after the initial procedure. The touch up procedure ensures good color saturation and provides an opportunity to fine tune the final shape and color.
*If you are prone to cold sores, lip tattooing can cause outbreaks. If this occurs the following actions may help:
-Read more about cold sores:
-Contact your doctor and get an anti-viral medication.
-Use L-lysine natural amino acid.
-Use Abreva cream.
-Do not pick at the tattoo site at any time during healing
-Do not let the area dry out completely, since this can cause scabbing and cracking of skin surface.
*Products to Not Use on the tattooed area:
-No Neosporin, Vaseline or other petroleum products while the site is healing.
-No anti-acne products (e.g. Benzoyl Peroxide, Pro-active) or lightening creams (bleach creams) hydroquinone around any permanent makeup site, since they will cause rapid fading
-No anti-aging products or facial products containing Alpha Hydroxyls (AHAs), Retin-A, Lactic or Glycolic Acids. -These will fade permanent makeup, since creams do not have assigned seating and travel in the skin.
-Do not scrub, scratch or pick tattooed areas or you will lose color that may not be repairable.
-Do not expose tattooed area to sun or tanning beds without using sun block
-Be careful to avoid infection of the tattooed area for 15 days after the procedure:
-Always wash your hands before touching the tattooed areas and your ointments.
-Do not share your aftercare product (Beauty Brew) with anyone.
-No facials or masks for 15 days, and avoid them in the permanent makeup area indefinitely.
-No swimming pools, Jacuzzis or other bodies of water for 15 days
-Do not soak your face underwater in a bathtub or allow the shower to spray directly in your face for 15 days
-Laser procedures done within 3 inches of permanent makeup can cause fading
-Face peels, even mild ones, may cause permanent makeup to lighten
-Microdermabrasion in the permanent makeup area can fade permanent makeup.
-Any removal of dead cells on permanent makeup area can cause pre-mature fading.
-No exercising for 24 hours, avoid direct contact with animals and no gardening for a week.
What to Expect:
-There may be moderate swelling, redness and bruising for the first 5 days. Apply a Ziploc bag filled with water and ice for no more than 15 minutes at a time to reduce swelling.
-During the initial healing period, there should be minimal scabbing or flaking of the skin. If there is some scabbing or flaking, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own.
-Expect the color to eventually lighten by up to 40% once the healing process is complete
-Semi-Permanent Lip Color is in the skin rather than on top of it like lipstick, so it will have a matte finish unless you apply lip gloss or lipstick on top of the permanent makeup.
-Color may appear sketchy at different stages of healing. Be patient. This is a process that does not yield immediate results.
-Semi-Permanent makeup ink is not the same as body art ink, and by design it does not last as long as body art ink.
-Semi-Permanent Makeup does fade and is expected to last 2 to 5 years before requiring a touch-up.
-If you develop excessive redness, itchiness, or white pimple-like spots in the tattooed area, you may be having a reaction to the Carmex. If this occurs, wash the area, and stop using Carmex or any other product on the area.
-Allow the reaction to settle down, which it should do in 24-72 hours.
