AFTERCARE TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

What you should do

To reduce swelling and help healing: Use Bacitracin as an aftercare antibiotic every 20-30 minutes. It provides pain relief, moisturizes, and helps retain color of the pigmented area on eyebrows, eyeliner and lips. Apply a clean ice pad to the area for no more than 15 minutes at a time, and repeat as needed. (Put sterilized Bacitracin on the area and place gauze between the area and ice, be careful not to get skin ice burn)

To prevent fading or loss of color: Stay away from excessive steam and heat (e.g., steam baths, facials) and heat (e.g., sun, hot liquids).

To prevent infection: Use Bacitracin. If discharge emits from the area, wipe it off with sterilized cotton, clean and dry it, and then reapply Antibiotic.

  • For eyes:

Gentle Rinse eyes with eye wash daily for 5 days.

  • For lips:

To prevent infection: After each meal, rinse your lips with cool water and dry the area. Apply sterilized bacitracin Ointment or Carmex with a clean, sterilized cotton-tipped applicator in the morning and at night to the pigmented area.

To prevent fever blisters: Use Carmex to prevent fever blisters. Apply on lips every 30 to 60 minutes. Or, use L-Lysine Tablets (a non-prescription vitamin).

To treat fever blisters: Use Carmex on lips every 30 to 60 minutes. Use Laciness Tablets or Granules (nonprescription, kept in pharmacy refrigerator) to decrease the blister’s effects and promote faster healing.


What you should NOT do

  • Do not use any cosmetics on the procedure area.
  • Keep your fingers and hair away from the pigmented area. (Germs may be transmitted to the newly treated area and cause infection.)

  • Avoid eating salty foods.
  • Do not peel protective scab that forms on healing area or perform activities that will cause excessive sweating, which may cause scab to leave a scar.

Healing: It is normal for approximately 25%-50% of the pigment to slough off during the first 10-20 days of the healing process. Although the area will appear to be healed, it will not be fully healed for 4-6 weeks. Continue to use aftercare products until you are completely healed
