Tattoo Removal Aftercare

Tattoo Removal Aftercare Instructions

KEEP THE TREATED AREA CLEAN AND DRY. Any moisture to the treated area may result in an infection or an undesirable result.

TIPS TO KEEP DRY:

1. KEEP THE TREATED AREA CLEAN AND DRY. Any moisture to the treated area may result in an infection or an undesirable result. Do not cover the area with a Band-Aid or anything else, leave open to air. Air/oxygen provides good and faster healing. You should not be touching the area at all but if you find yourself needing to please make sure your hands are exceptionally clean.

2. DO NOT SOAK. Do not soak the treated area in water. You may shower as normal but keep the area out of the shower spray the best that you can and not let the area stay wet from more than a few seconds. NO soaking in water of the scab will be destroyed.

3. NO BATHING. No swimming, saunas, hot tubs, tanning or intense exercise.

4. DO NOT disrupt the scabbing process (i.e. no picking, scratching, etc.) All scabbing needs to fall off naturally/ If you force or pick a scab off, you will disrupt the process and possibly cause scarring.

5. TREAT AREA WITH TLC. The edges can be wiped clean from any dripping blood, the site should be left alone and not get wet for 24 hours. Once the scab is formed, bathing is normal but wash the area gently with the fingers and soap and rinse. Keep the area clean and absolutely no creams, nothing applied. Leave it alone. If it itches and it is a safe area other than around the eyes, dab with a little bit of alcohol.

6. ONCE ALL SCABBING HAS NATURALLY FALLEN OFF, apply one drop of APO Aftercare or Vitamin E Oil three times per day, throughout the day, every day, for a minimum of 4 weeks, or until next removal session. DO NOT start applying the Vitamin E oil UNTIL all scabbing has completely fallen off. It is our goal to keep the area as dry as possible, until all scabs have naturally fallen off.

7. LIPS (Liner Only) please drink all liquids with a straw until all scabbing has naturally fallen off. No whitening or peroxide toothpastes should get on the scab. Cut food into small bites, try not to bite directly into a sandwich. Try to keep mouth expressions to a minimum. It is important to the process and the integrity of the skin that 4 full weeks of healing take place before another removal session can be done. No exceptions! Tattoo Removal is long process and patience is required. Please be patient and give the process a fair chance to work. Expect visible and wanted results in 3 – 6 sessions. The number of sessions needs will depend on how saturated the ink is, how deep it was implanted and how much needs to be removed for the desired result.

Aftercare for Additional Services

Permanent Eyeliner Aftercare
Immediately following your procedure, your technician will apply a layer of balm in order to protect your freshly opened layer of skin from debris and bacteria while you leave the office. Within a few hours, your skin will begin to regenerate itself, so there will be no need to reapply another layer of balm.

Wash area after two hours with ice cold water and cotton balls for the first 24 hours.

No makeup on area until the cosmetic tattoo is completely healed, average time is 7-14 days.

Apply ice if needed for 20 mins on and absolutely no more. You can use after a 20 min break if needed but do not exceed 20mins per icing session.

Microneedling Aftercare
Once you have had the procedure done, do the following

DO NOT EXPOSE YOURSELF TO THE SUN
After you have undergone your microneedling procedure, stay out of the sun and do not apply any sunscreen, due to the toxins that may be contained in the lotion. Post procedure, the skin channels are completely open, and any toxins contained in topical applicants may be harmful to you.

DO NOT USE ANY “ACTIVE INGREDIENT” SKIN PRODUCTS
Post procedure, avoid any skin care product that has active ingredients. These commonly include things like Alpha Hydroxyl Acids, Retinol and other similar agents. The skin will be highly sensitive and these products will only irritate the it further.

AVOID THE USE OF MAKEUP AFTER TREATMENT
It is imperative that you let your skin “breathe” and recover for 24 hours after the procedure. The skin channels are open, and using a makeup brush can penetrate the pores, especially if they are very thin, causing further irritation. Using a makeup brush that has been used before can contaminate the skin and, consequently, lead to infections. Wait 24 to 48 hours before you apply face makeup to give your skin the necessary recovery time.

AVOID SWEATING
As you sweat the pores of your skin will reopen, and the bacteria on your skin may enter the skin punctures. This can lead to a either a reaction or infection.

DRINK WATER
It is important to stay hydrated before and after your procedure to help your skin heal and rejuvenate faster.

Microblading Aftercare

Gently blot the area with clean tissue to absorb excess lymph fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the lymph.

Days 1-7: Wash
Wash daily to remove bacteria and dead skin. (Don’t worry….THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)

Gently wash your eyebrows each morning and night with water and an antibacterial soap like Dial Soap, Cetaphil or Neutrogena. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.

Days 1-7 Moisturize
Apply a rice grain amount of aftercare ointment that we provide you with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing or even pull the ink out. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

Important Reminders

– Avoid hot, sweaty exercise for one week
– Use a fresh pillowcase
– Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate away. Picking can cause scarring or loss of color
– No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks
– Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 4 weeks after procedure. Wear a hat when outdoors.
– Avoid heavy sweating and long hot showers for the first 10 days.
– Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days
– Avoid swimming, lakes, hot tubs for the first 10 days
– Avoid topical makeup including sunscreen on the area
– DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area

Important note about showering:
**Limit your showers to 5 minutes so you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet at the very last end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.

Remember, with the proper prep and aftercare routine you will have much better results with your microblading procedure!**
