LIP LINER / LIP COLOR
Expect moderate swelling, usually 1 to 2 days following the procedure. Applying a cool pack for the first 2 hours is most important, and should be continued throughout the day. Wash with cold water and pat dry. Keep moist with A & D Ointment for the next 7 days, and then switch to lip balm or lipstick with an SPF of 15 or greater, as the sun tends to fade lip color quickly.
After the procedure the lips will appear to have too much color. After 3 to 4 days, the epidermis sloughs off. It will appear you have lost all color; however, when your lips have healed completely, the dermal layer will gradually become darker. Two applications may be required to achieve the desired results. It is not uncommon to lose up to 70% of the color after the first application.
SCAR CAMOUFLAGE / AREOLA RESTORATION
Keep area away from water for 24 hours. Keep moist with A & D Ointment.
REMEMBER FOR ALL PROCEDURES:
EYELINER (Day & Effects)
Day 1: Swollen, like you have been crying, with a heavier eye makeup look.
Day 2: Swollen, usually for only a few hours after waking up, and the heavier eye makeup look
Day 3: Swelling decreases with a tight feeling. The pigment begins to lift away from the skin.
Day 4: There is a slight “pinching” feeling. Some itching is normal as the skin begins to flake.
DO NOT PICK AT IT.
Day 5: Blinking movement of the eye usually remove all of the pigment be this day. Color is somewhat grayish and it will take a few more days to clarify to your full color.
EYEBROWS (Day & Effects)
Day 1 & 2: The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% darker and bolder in width than when when
fully healed. Your skin is red under the pigment, which causes the color of the pigment to
appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which will begin in a few days, will cause excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a narrower appearance will result. New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.
Day 3: Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.
Day 4: The skin begins to flake, peeling from the outside edges first.
Day 5: Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until the color clarifies.
LIPS (Day & Effects)
Day 1: Swelling, tender, heavy thick lipstick look with an orange/brick color effect.
Day 2: Slight swelling, intense color.
Day 3: Less swelling, thicker texture, sore, hot feeling before exfoliation with an orange color effect.
Day 4: Exfoliation begins, very chapped lips. Sloughing off, peeling of dry skin with pigment.
Day 5: Very chapped, almost finished with first chapping stage. Appears like most of the color has
Day 6: A soft color begins to appear.
Day 7 to 13: Lip color disappears and the “frosty” (2nd chapping stage) begins as a whitish/gray haze
on the lips.
Day 14: Color “blooms” from within more and more each day, as the new skin heals completely.
Day 21: Healing is now complete. The color you see is the color you have. Your lips will remain a bit
dry for a month or two. Use a good lip balm to assist them in returning to normal, with full color.
