Eyebrows

  1.  Gently TAP the antibiotic ointment on the eyebrow area a minimum of 3 times a day.  The purpose of the ointment is to create a barrier to prevent dirt, dust and water from getting to the treated area.  This barrier will keep them clean and aid in preventing infection. This will also keep them moist and keep the itching to a minimum and to ensure good healing.  Be sure to keep all make-up, cleansers, soaps, moisturizers away from the area.

  2. After the 4th day reduce applying the ointment to twice a day.  Be sure to TAP when applying.  Morning and night makes the most sense because that is usually when we wash our face.  This will continue to protect them from the water.

  3. Bacitracin is not the same as Neosporin.  DO NOT substitute.

  4. Eventually the area will begin to flake.  Do not attempt to scratch or pick away any crusts.  Early removal of the pigment crusts (or flakes) will result in areas with insufficient color.

  5. Some blood spotting is normal.

  6. Avoid sun exposure and keep activity to a minimum as to not sweat.

  7. The healing time is around a week.  Keep in mind that this is an average and that healing times vary.

  8. When you are completely healed you can go back to your usual routine.  

  9. I encourage you to use sunscreen to  protect the area from the sun.

  10. Call Diane if you have any questions.

  11. If a touch up appointment is needed you must schedule it within a 3 month period.  After such time there will be a fee.

Eyeliner

Lip liner/ Lip Shading

  1. Gently TAP the antibiotic ointment to the lip and vermillion area constantly until the area is healed.  The purpose of the ointment is to create a protective barrier.  This barrier keeps dirt, dust and water from the area. This  barrier will keep them clean and aid in preventing infection.  This will also keep them moist to ensure good healing.

  2. Be sure to put a thick coat on your lips before you are going to wet your face.  This will create a barrier and keep water from reaching the tattooed area. 

  3. Some blood spotting is normal.

  4. Bacitracin is not the same as Neosporin.  DO NOT substitute.

  5. Be sure to keep all make-up, cleansers, soaps, moisturizers away from your lips. 

  6. Minimal exposure to all forms of water and sun is advisable.

  7. Do not attempt to pick away any of the flaking.  Early removal of the pigment will result in insufficient  color.

  8. The average healing time is about 5 days.  

  9. Although you can eat what ever you want, it is a good idea to be mindful of what you eat. For example, any type of vinaigrette might sting.  Be sure that whatever you eat does not scrape against your lips.  For example, pizza or spaghetti would not be a good choice, whereas chicken or steak that you can cut up and eat with a fork and pass through your lips would be a better choice. 

  10. Drink with a straw.

  11. Generally after the lip area is healed you will not see much color on your lips.  However, in a week or two you will  begin to see some color come in and at the end of 6 weeks you will see full color retention.

  12. I encourage you to use sunscreen to protect the area from the sun.

  13. Call Diane if you have any questions.

  14. If a touch up appointment is needed you must schedule it within a 3 month period.  After such time there will be a fee.

Nipple/ Areola

  1. Gently TAP on the antibiotic ointment to the areola area until healing is complete.  The purpose of the ointment is to create a protective barrier.  This barrier will keep the area clean and moist to promote good healing.

  2. This barrier also keeps them dry.  Be sure to  coat the area with the ointment before you get in the shower to keep the water off of them

  3. Some blood spotting is normal.

  4. After putting the ointment on the areola place a non stick gauze between your breast and your bra.

  5. The Bacitracin provided for you is not the same as Neosporin.  DO NOT substitute.

  6. As the area begins to heal it will begin to get flakey .  DO NOT pick at the flakes.  Early removal of  the flakes means early removal of pigment and will result in insufficient color.

  7. Healing time is around a week.  Keep in mind that this is an average and that healing times vary.

  8. When you are completely healed you can go back to your usual routine.
