cosmetic Tattoo | after Care

 

 
 
 
 
 
As with all tattoos, cosmetic tattoo procedures require after care in order to heal correctly and to maintain their vibrancy in colour and appearance. At On Point Cosmetic Tattoo Studio we are committed to providing you with the information and ongoing care you need to take care of your skin following any of our treatments.

To achieve best results following your procedure we recommend you follow an after-care regime. You will be given information following your treatment, however if you do have questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact your consultant for advice.

 
 
 
 
 
 

BEFORE & AFTER CARE

 
Pre-Procedure:

  • Tweezing, tinting and waxing should not be done within 48 hours of your procedure. For eyeliner treatments, lash extensions will need to be removed.
  • Please allow for some swelling and redness in the area following treatment due to the delicate skin and sensitivity. Where possible, keep social plans to a minimum for the first 2 days after your procedure.
  • Contact lenses cannot be worn during or immediately after Eyeliner treatments.
  • If prone to Cold Sores, it is recommended that you obtain a prescription for antiviral tablets to prevent an outbreak when undergoing Lip treatments.
  • Refrain from using aspirin, ibuprofen, alcohol and other blood thinning medications for at least 7 days prior to your treatment (unless specifically prescribed by your doctor). If you are unsure, please consult your GP.
  • A skin patch test is offered on request; however, allergic reactions are rare.

Post Procedure:

In the four days following treatment you may experience the following. These are normal and part of the healing process:

  • Minor swelling or redness
  • Mild tenderness in the area
  • Itchiness in the area
  • Dry flaky skin

After Care:

  • Apply Bepanthen Antiseptic cream to your brows twice daily to aid in healing for the first 10-14 days. Hydration and Protection is key to the healing process.
  • No excessive exercise for the first 3-4 days.
  • No Saunas, Spas or steam rooms for 7-10 days.
  • No Swimming for 10-14 days.
  • No retinol or vitamin A products on the forehead for 30 days (brow treatments).
  • Do not expose your healing skin to direct sunlight, wind, tanning beds or water for at least 10-14 days.
  • Do not pick, peel or scratch your skin during the healing process to avoid scarring, uneven pigment and infection.
  • Refrain from using aspirin, ibuprofen, alcohol and other blood thinning medications for at least 2 days after to your treatment (unless specifically prescribed by your doctor). If you are unsure, please consult your GP.
  • For lip treatments, the use of Zovirax cream is recommended to avoid infection and cold sore breakouts.
  • For eyeliner treatments it is recommended to avoid the use of contact lenses until your eyes return to their pre-tattoo condition.

Important Notes:

Cosmetic Tattoo procedures require touch up and adjustments in multiple sessions. You will be required to attend a follow up Perfection Visit, approximately 6 weeks after your first appointment.

It will take time for your cosmetic tattoo to settle following the procedure. The intensity of the colour will be much darker or brighter than the expected outcome immediately following your procedure.

We recommend brows be maintained approximately every 18 months to keep them On Point.
