In order for your cosmetic permanent makeup to heal properly and look it’s best, Pre and Post Care instructions found below are of the utmost importance! Pre-Care instructions are designed to limit bleeding and skin sensitivities during the service. Excessive bleeding during the procedure will dilute the pigment color and lead to poor results.
All permanent cosmetic procedures are a multi-session process. You are required to come back for at least one touch-up visit before it can be determined that your work is complete. Be prepared for the initial color intensity of your procedure to be significantly sharper, brighter, or darker than what is expected for the final outcome. It will take time for the transition based upon how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates.
While these tattooed colors may initially stimulate the exact color and tone desired, they will not always remain a perfect match. Tattooed colors are constant, while your own skin color will vary depending on exposure to cold, heat, sun and circulatory changes.

- If you have had any type of eye surgery, including cataract, Lasik, and blepharoplasty, you must consult your physician and get clearance. Most physicians require 2-9 months before you can have your eyeliner done. This is because there is slight pressure on the eye during this procedure.

- If taking antibiotics, must wait one month
- If you wear contacts, please do not wear them to your appointment and refrain from wearing them for a minimum of 4 hours after procedure is finished
Please note: You will be most sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
EYELINER POST CARE
- Swelling: Moderate to severe swelling, depending on how you respond to crying. If you swell after crying, expect some swelling following procedure, generally for the first few mornings.
- Sleep propped up or on your back to reduce swelling.
- A sealed ice bag can be lightly applied for the first 2 days. DO NOT PRESS ICE BAG AGAINST EYES!
- Day After Procedure: Wash eyes the first morning following the procedure with mild soap and water. Rinse well and pat dry lightly. After which eye area should avoid contact with water for 5-7 days.
- On the 4 th day from the date of the procedure, use a Q-tip to apply a tiny amount of Vaseline, once daily for 4 days. Wipe any excess with a clean Q-tip. If you can see it, you have applied too much!
- Avoid Until Healed: Avoid eye creams, night creams, moisturizers, Retin-A, lash tinting, lash extensions and false lashes for 8 weeks. Avoid getting Vaseline in your eye as this can invite an infection.
- Symptoms or Signs of Infection: Eyelid may have a slight pink or redness above eyeliner immediately following the procedure.
- Eyeball should not be red! You must seek medical attention immediately if you see signs of bloodshot eyes or puss in the corners of your eye/eyes. This may be an infection, requiring a physician and prescribed medication.
Tanning will lighten any pigmented area over time, so use a sunblock 30+ when tanning. It is best to fully cover your cosmetic tattoo with a hat once you have healed to avoid premature fading. Failure to follow pre and post-treatment may cause loss of pigment, discoloration or infection.
