Post Care : What do I do now?
First let me congratulate you ! In about 4 weeks you will wonder what took you so long to make your decision?????? (I know some of the answers…) The after care is just as important as the actual procedure, so please follow the instructions so you can enjoy your cosmetic procedure for years to come.Immediately after any of the procedures, the area tattooed will be much darker and bolder for 1 to 2 weeks, the design will look very bold, and you may experience some dryness, flakiness and if you have been bleeding some scabbing.
Please do not pick the area, you will impair the result and will only have to blame yourself!
For the lips and the eyeliner there will be some swelling and using antihistamines will help keeping the swelling to a minimum
Please purchase a small tube of BEPANTHEN CREAM (BLUE BOX) from your chemist and bring it to your appointment.
I will show you how to take care of your tattoo and how to apply the Bepanthen cream, you will also need some make up remover pads and some cotton tips.
The after care is very simple but must be done 5 times daily until the area is completely healed (from 5 to 10 days), only a smear of BEPANTHEN is needed, more is not better.
A follow up appointment will be scheduled for you between 4 and 8 weeks from the day of the treatment, so that you are fully satisfied with the results.
A stick of Liprotek can be purchased from me (it retails for $25 ) to be used after full lip tattooing , it will keep your lips anesthetised and it will also beneficial against cold sores.
Once healed the result will be softer in colour, less bold, and the shine will have disappeared (you will loose between 20 and 60% of the colour implanted)
The longevity of the tattoo is impossible to predict, the lighter the colour the less it will last, also it will depend on your skin type, your lifestyle .
You should not schedule any social appointments the day of the treatment.
You can resume wearing contact lenses in 2 days.
A more detailed after care information leaflet will be given to you immediately after the procedure.
