AFTERCARE FOR ALL PMU PROCEDURES
Careful attention needs to be taken when caring for your pmu post procedure. It will take up to 48 hours for the area to create a protective barrier. Do not panic, it is normal that the treated area swells and the colour looks dark and more intense than required. It will fade away up to 40%. During the next 7- 10 days your treated area will scab over then slough away. Remember you will have to go through three phases: 1) heal, 2) peel, 3) fade. Do not RUB, PICK, SCRATCH the area while it is healing, as the pigment may be removed along with crusting tissue!!! After that period some clients think that they have lost their colour or it has lightened too much. Please, wait 4 weeks to see the true result. A retouch cannot in any circumstances take place until 4 weeks as scarring may occur. So, touch up after initial treatment must be scheduled between 4-8 weeks.
Permanent makeup always leads to the skin injury. It is client responsibility to follow an aftercare to avoid risk of infection, what allow the skin heal without complications, and to have a good result.
Do not touch or pick at the treated area! Redness and swelling may appear in the next 24 hours but will be minimal. Apply a fine film of aftercare with cotton bud twice a day for up to a week. To prevent possible infections or allergic reactions ensure no makeup, creams, cleansers, soap, tinting, tweezing until the epidermis is healed.
1. On the day after tattooing:
•After the procedure, gently wipe the area with a clean damp cotton pad to remove excess lymph ﬂuid.
•Do this every 20-30 minutes for 2-3 hours until the oozing has stopped.
•Removing this ﬂuid prevents hardening of the lymphatic ﬂuids.
•Make sure that your brows is absolutely dry and lymph stopped oozing before you go to sleep.
2. 2-10 days until scabs fall of:
•Gently wash the area each morning and night with water and gentle antibacterial soap. With a very light touch, use your ﬁngertips to gently cleanse the area.
•Rub the area in a smooth motion for a few seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away.
•To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.
•After cleansing apply a tiny, rice grain amount of ointment with a cotton swab and spread it across the treated area.
•Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The product should be barely noticeable on the skin. •NEVER put the product on a wet or damp tattoo.
•Scabs usually fall of after 7-10 days.
Apply a fine film of aftercare cream with a cotton wool bud 3 times a day for up to 1 week. Avoid spicy or citrus foods for 7 days. Be careful when brushing your teeth, as toothpaste can fade colour during the healing process. Try to avoid food and drinks with bright colorants and it is very good idea to use a straw. Nicotine can change pigment colour, also cigarettes might leave faded area on the lip, so please, be aware and careful.
From day 3 your lips will start to flake away and usually takes up to 5-7 days. In any way do not scratch or remove the scabs! Do not be alarmed if lips colour has faded or disappeared, this is usual in the lip healing process. Due to the lips being membrane by day 10 you might see the colour start to reappear and the colour brighten up to 3 months.
From waking the day after this procedure, the area may appear swollen or puffy. The reason for this is lymphatic fluid flows to the area to heal where the skin has been broken. When you are up and about the puffiness will reduce as lymphatic drainage will occur. If you experience any discomfort in the next 24 hours a cold compress may be applied to the area.
Do not apply any aftercare creams to eyeliners; do not wear makeup of any kind for at least 5-7 days. Do not pick at the area as this will cause gaps in the eyeliner. Water or tears will wash pigment away within the next week, please be aware.
Do not RUB, PICK, SCRATCH the area!!!
First 2 weeks after the treatment avoid swimming, bathing, sauna, spa, direct sun exposure, tanning salon, beauty treatments, intense training, sport activities accompanied by sweating, dusty environment, contact area with chemicals.
Any products that contain AHA's, acid peels, micro abrasion, acid peels, acne treatments, vitamin A retinol, hair growing products as Revitalash, Latisse, etc. may lighten the area. Check your product labeling.
Limit your showers to 5 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. Keep your face/procedure area out of the water while you wash your body, then, at the end of your shower, wash your hair. Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area. Use cotton disk or tissue very gently to blot dry.
Once the area has fully healed, please use a sunscreen to prevent pigment fading.
The Red Cross has advised not to give blood for 6 months following pmu procedure.
Do not have any form of laser in the direct area of pmu as the pigment will alter due and may turn black.
For MRI scans inform the operator of your pmu procedure. You may feel a slight tingling sensation in the area. Pmu shows as an artifact through these scanners.
Botox or fillers can be done 2- 4 weeks before or after pmu but consult the specialist before considering this procedure.
Please, get in touch If you have any questions or concerns.
If you experience anything out of ordinary contact your technician or seek for medical advice.
Avoid laser treatments on or near tattooed area and inform your laser technician, as the pigment can drastically change the colour.
