Proper care following your enhancement is necessary to achieve the best results. Please review these cosmetic tattoo aftercare instructions and refer to them as necessary. You may contact us if you have further questions or concerns.
The treated area will be darker and bolder in color and more defined. This can last up to a week after the treatment while the initial healing process takes place. It may feel a bit like sunburn afterwards but there should be minimal discomfort. Redness and swelling are minimal.
There should be minimal scabbing or flaking of the skin. The complete healing process takes about 4-6 weeks, at which time the true color of the tattoo is evident. During this process, your tattoo will soften and lighten. You may think you have lost too much color. Be patient, your skin is still regenerating and exfoliating. Wait at least 6 weeks to see the true color, as it seems to take on new strength.
Most clients need more than one treatment. New procedures take at least two appointments to complete. We check how your skin has taken the color and make necessary adjustments. Older clients or those with previous cosmetic tattoos may need to come back more than once. Most of our clients’ cosmetic tattoos stay true to color as they lighten. If ever this does not happen, we have a special formula to fix the problem.
Permanent eyebrows last anywhere from one to three years. How long depends on different factors affecting the procedure. Many clients get a touch up once every 12-18 months to maintain the shape and saturation of pigment. As with any tattoo, sun exposure will make the color soften faster. Wearing sunscreen will keep it from happening so fast. But, you should not wear it before everything is completely healed. Apply it carefully to avoid affecting the tattooed area. Skin type, lifestyle, color choice, capillary health and chemical peels are also factors.
IMPORTANT: Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the treated area. It may appear as though the tattooed area has completely disappeared. Within 1-2 weeks, the pigment will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.
If you are having laser resurfacing or laser hair removal after your tattoo has healed, please inform the laser technician. Continue at your own discretion. Laser procedures may darken, lighten, or discolor the tattooed area.
If you deliberately violate any of our terms and conditions, including our aftercare suggestions, we will be excluded from liability and we have the right to cancel any complementary treatment in the future.
