Pre-treatment Care

Pre-treatment Care

Very Important

  • The usage of Retinol and Vitamin A should be discontinue one month prior to the procedure.
  • It is recommended to eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the procedure.
  • No excessive alcohol or caffeine consumption 24 hours before your procedure. Alcohol and caffeine can thin the blood, which causes the skin to be hypersensitive, and bleed/bruise more easily.
  • Avoid sun tanning one week prior to the procedure.
  • Avoid blood thinning medications for 24 hours before the procedure. This includes Aspirin, Niacin (Vitamin B3), Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen, fish oils tablets. Please consult your physician if this is an issue.
  • Eyelash extensions should be removed 3 days prior to the procedure.
  • No eyelash perm and/or tinting at least 3 days prior.
  • Discontinue Retin-A one week prior to the procedure.
  • No Botox around the eye area 2 weeks prior.
  • Eyelash growth serums like Latisse bring extra circulation to the lash line area which results in more growth of hair/lashes. This can cause the skin to be hypersensitive and bleed easily. It is recommended to discontinue the use of these products at least 3-6 months before your treatment.
  • Do not wear any eye makeup on the day of your appointment.
  • If you wear contact lenses, please wear glasses on the day of your appointment.

Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
Aftercare

Aftercare

Very Important

  • Splash your eyes with water and wash off any pigment residue immediately after the procedure. Pat dry gently with a clean tissue.
  • Wash the skin around the eyes twice a day (morning & night) using a gentle, unscented soap (Cetaphil or baby shampoo). Use your fingertips to cleanse gently and pat dry with a clean tissue.
  • No ointment needed for the lash line enhancement.
  • Scabs will take about 7 -10 days to peel off. Do not pick at the scabs or peel them off prematurely.
  • Swelling and redness is normal for the first few days.
  • Slight stinging sensation in the first few days is also normal.
  • The color will fade approximately 30-50% lighter when the scabs fall off. This is completely normal. Do not feel discouraged if the fading is more than you expected.
  • To achieve the perfect eyeliner, we need to see how your skin accepts the initial application and a touch-up appointment is where we will perfect the shape and color (6 weeks after).
  • No eye makeup is allowed until the scabs completely fall off.
  • Avoid sweaty exercises such as hot saunas, hot yoga, and swimming until the scabbing comes off.
Healing process

Healing Process

Very Important

  • The eyeliner will start to form scabs and they might look dark and thick. As the skin heals, the scabs will fall off in random pieces and might look patchy.
  • Flaking and crusting on the tattoo area may occur.
  • Avoid pulling off the scabs that are dried on the lashes.
  • When you try to pull off the scabs that are hanging on your lashes, ensure the scabs are soft enough to slide off from the lashes. Use a mascara brush to help remove the scabs.
  • Swelling occurs up to 3 days after the procedure, especially in the morning.
  • Exercising the eyes can help reduce swelling and puffiness. Try blinking actively for 2 minutes in the morning.
  • To relieve swelling, you can ice the area with soft gel ice packs.
