What to expect after procedure

 

  • There will be some swelling, itching, scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness for 1 to 2 weeks. Aloe Vera Gel will help soothe the area and allow it to heal faster. Ice packs are a nice relief for the  itching and swelling. To ease discomfort you may take a pain killer (Tylenol). These symptoms will subside within 2 to 4 weeks, depending on how sensitive your skin is.

 

  • Colors may appear dark straight after the procedure. Do NOT be alarmed as the darkness will lighten after 2 weeks once all of the scabs have fallen off.

 

After care instructions

 

The following instructions must be carefully followed for at least two weeks post procedure to ensure pigment retention, prevention of infection and successful results:

  • Apply Aloe vera Gel with a Q-tip on small areas or use freshly washed clean hands/fingers for larger areas to avoid infection.  Never touch the treated area without washing your hands.

 

  • Do not scrub, scratch, rub or pick at the crust/scab that forms.  Allow it to flake off by itself.  If the crust/ scabs are removed before it is completely healed, the pigment underneath can be pulled out and lost.

 

  • Avoid salty foods, alcohol and coffee during the recovery period as it slows down the healing process. Smoking can also cause infections so avoid if possible.

 

  • Avoid the gym and saunas until the area is fully healed. Swimming should be avoided if possible as the chemicals in the pool will fade the pigments.

 

  • Keep area clean by washing gently with a mild or hypo allergenic cleanser/ gel.

 

  • Be cautious when sleeping at night as excessive rubbing can pull off the scabs or make the area sore.

 

  • For procedures on the face:  Avoid using any makeup on the procedure area until it is fully healed.  Purchase new mascara and makeup once area is healed to avoid contamination or bacterial infection.

 

  • Always use a sun block SPF30+  to protect the area from fading the sun. Wear proper sun protection each time you are in the sun to preserve the pigments, such as, caps, hats.

 

  • NOTE: It is crucial to return to the clinic for a touch-up 4 weeks from the initial procedure. Touch-ups are to correct and perfect color and unevenness.  Please remember to call the clinic within the 4 weeks to schedule a touch up session; otherwise, it is no longer valid and the normal touch up fee applies.
