Permanent Make Up After Care

What to expect and important instructions.

For Lips:

If you are fever blister prone, you have to take anti viral tablets to prevent fever blister formation. Examples : Virohexal / Lovire. Script needed from GP to get from pharmacy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to prevent fading where blister comes out.

Day 1-3:

Treated area looks too dark and too big. This is due to the pigment crust / scab formation. All colours scab 70% DARKER and THICKER. Lips will fade 70%. Apply a THIN layer of BACITRACIN to treated area in morning & evening with an ear bud for 3 days only. Keep area moist with Vaseline/ Vit A & D ointment / preparation H, you will start applying any one of these moisturizers immediately after your procedure.

DO NOT APPLY Bactroban or Zambuk as it will draw out the ink. Anti-inflammatory tablets / painkillers can be taken to subside burn sensation. 2 x Arnica homeopathic tablets can be chewed every 2 hrs to reduce swelling and bruising (if any). Wash your face as normal but around treated area, Do not wash the treated area with soap or chemicals. Pat dry. No rubbing. The less you agitate the treated area, the better result you will have.

Smoking can cause infection, so use plastic filters. Ignore any yellow/mustard/green/ pink undertones in first 5 days. These are pigment toners/stabilizers that will disappear after scabs have shed. Make-up can be applied over treated area after 8 hours to soften the appearance. Remove make up with Vaseline.

Day 3-5:

Scabs / crusts may start to detach/flake. Colour will look completely vanished. This is normal. You have 7 layers of skin, and it takes 6-8 weeks for all the colour to surface through the 7 layers and become complete and even everywhere. Be patient, the colour might only start showing after 6 weeks but it WILL SHOW ☺ Do not pick off the scabs. Let it heal on its own. Picking may lead to fading. Touch ups are an additional fee of R500 if and when needed.

Day 10 on wards:

Treated area will start to look really nice but still uneven in solidness, colour and undertone. Every week for a total of 8 weeks the colour will mature and even out and become more visible and solid. Dryness is normal since 7 layers of skin are rejuvenating weekly. The benefit of the dryness is that the lips generate more collagen and will appear naturally more plumped after 6-8 weeks.

For Brows:

Before your appointment:

Please try to avoid taking medication the day of your appointment as it can interfere with the anesthetics and thin the blood. Please arrive at your appointment with your make up applied they way you like it.
