2. POST PROCEDURAL GENERAL DIRECTIONS
Remember for optimal results proper care must be followed after every procedure. Also, remember that it is normal to experience some intensity and/or unevenness of color, especially after the initial application of pigment. These experiences will be addressed in your follow-up appointment. However, if you have any questions or concerns, contact me at any time. As with all procedures, there is low-risk of infection due to bacteria in the environment. In the event you should develop an infection please contact your physician immediately and advise me at your earliest convenience. After every procedure please review and follow the directions provided below.
· Use an ice pack protected by some barrier to reduce swelling. Do one 15-minute interval per hour for 12 hours following the procedure (12 total sessions). Do NOT ice for more than 15 minutes.
· Sleep slightly elevated to assist in the reduction of swelling (Sometimes there is oozing, so do not use your best pillowcases).
· Wash your hands before touching any treated area.
· Cotton-tipped applicators may be used to gently cleanse the eye area with eyewash.
· Do not expose your treated area to unsanitary conditions.
· Wear glasses outdoors to protect new eyeliner from the environment.
· Clean the treated area with the recommended products and apply aftercare ointment 3-5 times daily, up to 10 days, or as needed.
· Do NOT use an antibiotic ointment on the eyes!
· Some tenderness, puffiness, dryness and itching are quite normal to the treatment and healing process.
· DO NOT SCRATCH the treated area. It may cause your color to heal unevenly and you risk scarring and infection.
· DO NOT PICK OR PEEL ANY SCABS OR PIGMENT THAT MAY BE FLAKING OFF.
· Do not apply makeup on the treated area for 5 days after the procedure.
· It’s recommended not to use old mascara. (Your old mascara may be infected with bacteria that is detrimental to the healing process and may cause infections.)
· DO NOT USE an eyelash curler for two weeks. This instrument pulls the eyelashes and the tissue containing your eyeliner pigment that surrounds the lashes.
· Use artificial tears if needed. (Not saline.)
· During the healing process, do not expose your healing skin to hot tubs, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, direct shower spray, hot water or chemicals.
· You may gently wash your face with a mild cleanser, no scrubbing.
· Direct sun exposure and tanning beds should be avoided indefinitely.
· Do not do any heavy exercise or anything that will cause sweating for 24 hours. Both are counter-productive to the Permanent Makeup procedure you have received.

3.HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PERMANENT MAKEUP
· Apply an ice pack to reduce swelling as required.
· Always put a barrier between the skin and the ice pack.
· In the event the treated area feels dry, blot the area and apply ointment as required to remain clean and moist.
· Remember that the body’s fluids will dry very quickly and develop into a scab. Scabbing results in uneven color distribution in the treated area.
· After 3 days you can blotting discontinue blotting and only apply ointment to skin that has been cleaned with a mild skin cleanser or just water, (Do not use any cleansing products that contain acids such as glycolic or lactic.)
· After blotting off the body fluids on the treated area, immediately use a clean cotton swab to apply a very light film of ointment to the treated area.
· Apply the post treatment ointment at least 3-5 times daily. The ointment helps to trap the color into the skin and begins the healing process immediately.
· If you wish you may apply a general purpose ointment of your choice (Vaseline, A&D Ointment, etc). Avoid an antibiotic ointment because it may cause an allergic reaction. Continue to apply ointment to the treated area up to 10 days.
· The eyes are very sensitive to ointments so do not allow the ointment to come in contact with the eye itself, and use ointments very sparingly. Never allow the ointment past the top and bottom eyelashes going towards your eye.
· Discomfort within the eye itself is not normal and you should immediately see an eye doctor if your experiencing this discomfort.
Long Term Maintenance
Use a sunscreen daily and avoid exposure to abrasive or acid based facial products.
Procedures are conducted in accordance with the sanitation and sterilization standards set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards. Remember to avoid complications it is the responsibility of every client to follow the after care instructions. Tenderness in the treated area is expected, because this is a wound that must heal. In addition, there is always a possibility of environmental bacteria affecting the procedural area. If for whatever reason your conditions are not consistent with the healing agenda described above, please contact your physician or eye doctor for treatment and advise me as soon as possible at 248-648-5848.
