- Do not wear contact lenses during or immediately
following the eyeliner procedure. Remember to bring

- Apply ice to the treated area for 10-minute increments
during the first few hours after your procedure.
- You may experience the following for a few days
after the procedure:
Edema: There may be a moderate or large amount
of swelling for eyeliner and lips for the first 24 hours.
Bruising: Light bruising may occur although it
is rare – concealer or foundation may be used to cover
Lashes or Brows: “Sticking together” in the morning,
or small amounts of pigment “coming off” with skin conditioning
- Apply a lubricating product lightly
to the pigmented area at least twice a day for 2 days.
The use of antibiotic ointments should be avoided due
to the higher incidences of allergies to these products.
- The use of soaps, facial cleansers or makeup removal
products for 5 days.
- Applying makeup to the pigmented area for 7 days.
- Rubbing the pigmented area vigorously when washing
your face for the first month after a procedure.
- Scratching or picking away any crust on pigmented
area until fully healed – early removal of any crust
may result in areas with insufficient pigment.
- Sunbathing or tanning booths that result in direct
exposure to the pigmented area.
- Swimming in chlorinated pools or hot tubs until
- Exposure to the full pressure of the water in a
shower for 1 week.
- Using Retin A or other chemical peels over the pigmented
are in the future.
- Lips tend to be very dry after the procedure for
the first few days and a “chap lip feeling” occurs.
Please keep them very moist with the skin
conditioning oil until complete healing has occurred. At day
2 to 3 of the healing phases, a “pealing” occurs. Do
not peel off the pigment – let it naturally come off.
The lipliner will take longer to “peel” than the full
lip color. The color will appear lighter and almost
“disappears” during this phase.
During the next few weeks the color will intensify and
complete retention realized at 1 month.
Helpful Hints for long term care of your procedure:
- The use of a good sunscreen product is highly recommended
for all procedures due to fading factors of the sun,
especially for lips due to the potential photosensitivity
of red pigment.
- If the pigmented area becomes infected or painful,
or if you develop a fever soon after the pigmentation
procedure, please seek medical attention immediately
and notify us at your earliest convenience.
Before your procedure, you will be required to complete
this disclaimer similar to the above.
