Please take the time to read this and follow the simple steps:

  • To get the best post procedure results, this way your skin will heal within the minimum time and without any complications.

  • You will be provided a small container of A&D ointment to get you started, this is an antiseptic and moisturizing cream. It is advised that you obtain a tube of A&D ointment.

  • Before doing the Cosmetic Tattoo Aftercare wash your han before and after with Anti-microbial Soap.

  • Always use a fresh cotton tip every time you dip into the cream and never re-use them.

  • The idea is to keep the area that has been tattooed clean and moist, this will help with the healing process.

  • With all Cosmetic Tattoo's the color will appear 20-30% darker for the first five days, and due to slight swelling your lips and eyeliner may not look straight. It will take about a week for the color to settle in and for the swelling to go down too.

  • Any adjustment to the color and shape are made on your second session.

  • With all Cosmetic Tattoo treatment for the first week NO: cleanser, make-up, swimming, spa, direct running water on the area.

  • Use a soft face washer to wash your face and dab at the tattooed area gently, no rubbing.

  • Cold pads can be applied to reduce any swelling. Your usual moisturizer can be applied.

  • If you are concerned that there are signs of post-procedure or infection for example unusual swelling, pain, discharge, inflamed or irritated skin.

  • See your doctor as soon as possible.


  • EYEBROWS

  • It takes 7 to 10 days to heal.

  • You cannot speed up this process. Apply a thin layer of A&D ointment to the eyebrows 5 -6 times a day.

  • Before applying new cream gently wipe off any remaining cream.

  • If the skin feels itchy you are not applying enough cream so apply more frequently, as your skin becomes flaky or scaly.

  • Do not pull or scratch the skin to avoid ripping or tearing it up (this could cause scarring).

  • If your skin appears to be dry apply the cream more often.


  • EYELINER

  • Eyeliner will normally heal within 4 days.

  • If a light color eyeliner has been used it may fade up to 50% (it is possible to make it little darker on your next session. Do not use mascara nor rub your eyes until it fully healed).

  • Apply the Bepanthen cream to the eyeliner with a cotton tip 3 - 4 times a day, keep the area moist.

  • For the first two days your eyes may appear swallen, apply clean cold pads to the eye area several times during the day to reduce any swelling.

  • Do not rub or wipe your eyes with neither tissues nor towels.


  • LIPS

    After the procedure your lips will appear swollen and much darker than the color that was decided upon during consultation, the color will subside over the next week, your lips will feel very tender and may have a tingling feeling for a week.

  • Full lip treatment, heal quite quickly in 3 - 4 days or up to a week.

  • Apply enough A&D ointment to keep it moist so it won't dry and become flaky.

  • Avoid peeling your dry skin, let your lips exfoliate naturally.
