This is your pilot speaking, you're currently a few errors away from loosing your eyebrows. Here's how you're going to save them with great after-care.
One of the key's to great results in any permanent makeup procedure is after-care. To provide you with a an effective care routine, we're going to single out all the mistakes you're probably making.
|Cold packs have not shown to make a noticeable difference in reducing permanent makeup swelling. Although it may feel good on the skin, the traumatized tissue is already in a delicate condition and can get frost damages.
|Avoid any blood pressure increasing activities, this can cause swelling and oozing.
|Do not lay your face directly on your pillow. The compressed skin does not get adequate flow of blood and oxygen. The skin will ooze more and loose color.
|Do not dye, wax, tweeze, or use electrolysis for 2 weeks in the performed area.
|Lips will ooze for a couple of days. Blot and reapply recommended ointment. After sleeping, crust will have dried on the lips. Rinse with water or put more ointment on to loosen crust, blot and reapply ointment. Most tissues like the ones you blow your nose with will leave lint on the lips. Use something stronger and lint-free like Bounty hand towels. A soaking wet cloth feels good to blot with.
|Try to keep toothpaste off lips while healing & do not have teeth bleached while healing.
After the lips are healed over and all is well, they still feel more chapped than normal. The chapped feeling subsides over a period of weeks to months. Certain lip balms create the problem. Do not use anything made for cold sores or blisters (carmex, blistex) because although they initially feel moisturizing, they turn around and dry the lips out. Some do more damage than that, especially if applied on broken lip tissue during the healing process. Applying grapeseed will usually help.
