Microblading

Aftercare treatment

Apply a thin layer of ointment to 2x a day to prevent excessive dryness, and use a clean cotton swab for each dip into the ointment, no double dipping! Apply aftercare product sparingly for one week following the procedure (or until scabs have completely healed) this will allow the tissue to heal more quickly. The after care product is used to prevent infection and minimise crusting.

 

For best results, avoid:

  • Direct Sun - If you must be outside, wear a hat and sunglasses. After the procedure heals, use sunscreen to prevent fading of pigment colour.

  • Makeup/Facial Treatments - Avoid makeup, lash/brow tints, and other facial treatments until the procedure heals (5-7 days). Very gentle facial washes and treatments are acceptable after 24 hours as long as the procedure area is avoided.

  • Water - Avoid the procedure area getting in contact with water until the procedure area heals.

  • Rubbing - Avoid touching or rubbing while the procedure area is healing, as it may remove pigment and/or crusting tissue.

  • Sweating - Avoid exercise that causes sweating until the area heals.

  • Irritating Clothing - Avoid any clothing that may irritate the area.

  • Anti-aging and or acne products that actively stimulate, lighten or brighten the skin, on your new micro-bladed eyebrows.

Pigment Intensity

Colour intensity is very high immediately after the procedure. Over the next 2-3 weeks, the colour may lighten up by 30%. Your permanent cosmetics will begin to turn darker immediately and for the next 3-4 days. After this, the colour will settle back to the original colour you chose. It is normal for some people to have pigment scab or flake off. It is also normal if it does not. Fading or loss of pigment may occur during the healing. There should be pigment under the skin where the pigment has flaked off. If there is no pigment underneath, you may need a touchup.

 

Pigment may come off on your pillow while you sleep, and may stain linens. Use a clean cover that you won’t mind staining if this happens.

 

Infection Symptoms

Symptoms of infection or adverse reaction are very rare.

They include: excessive redness, swelling, tenderness of procedure site, elevated body temperature, rash, or purulent drainage from the procedure site. If you experience symptoms of infection or adverse reaction, seek medical attention immediately. Please note that some redness, swelling, and tenderness is normal.

 

Touch-ups should be scheduled about 4-5 weeks post-procedure. All permanent cosmetic procedures are a two-step process. Results are not determined until a touch-up application is completed.

Micro-needling

Immediately after the treatment, the Practitioner/Technician applies the PhiFace After Treatment Mask and provides the client with Ultimate Skin Cocktail with detailed instructions for use.

After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in a similar way to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness, tingling and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. These effects will diminish greatly a few hours following treatment and after 3 days most visible erythema will be absolved.

Ultimate Skin Cocktail gel is to be applied on a treated skin area three times a day (morning, afternoon and night), starting from the evening after the treatment. This procedure is to be followed for next 4-5 days.

After that period, we recommend you to use facial cream for hydration. 

After the treatment, do not:

  • wash your face for 12 hours

  • expose the skin to direct sun light for 24 hours with strict recommendation to wear hat

  • apply make up for 24 hours

  • use foundations and powders for 48 hours

  • use sauna, pools & public bathing, tanning salons for 5 days

  • expose yourself to physical exertion and sport activities accompanied by excessive sweating for 5 days

  • use Botox or fillers for next 3 weeks

Lash Lift

Do not get your lashes wet for the first 24 hours - take caution while showering and please no swimming during this first period.

No other facial beauty treatments for 24 hours.

Use of Sauna/Steam is possible after 24 hours but may weaken the effect of the lift. 

No eye make up for 24 hours.

Do not use eyelash curlers. (You won't need to!) 

Eyelash Extensions

Avoid touching your lashes for at least 3 hours.

Avoid steam from showers, saunas, steam irons, cooking and any other steam producing situations for the first 24 hours.

Do not use a lash curler. It will crimp the lash extension.

Do not put your face directly into the shower stream.

Never wear waterproof mascara, applying mascara will contribute to lash loss.

Be extra careful with your lashes. No rubbing or pulling. 

Be careful when pulling clothing over your head.

After sleeping, you need to brush your lashes with the disposable mascara wand provided to you.

Do NOT Use OIL/LANOLIN based eye make up removers. Also keep moisturiser and sunscreen away from lashes.

To clean eye makeup off and clean your lashes we advise to purchase a lash shampoo that is specifically for lash extensions to achieve a long lasting lashes.

Do not perm or tint lashes.

Brow Lamination

If you have eye allergies or feel sensitivity purchase an allergy based eye drop from the chemist. This assists in your eyes getting used to the product.  An allergic reaction is rare and generally occurs after sleeping or after 12 hours (which ever is first). In the rare event that you experience an allergic reaction, which is easily identified by severe swelling and redness. Please contact the salon, as removal of lashes is necessary. It takes ½ hour with a gentle glue remover to avoid any damage to your natural lashes and is, of course, free of charge.

Try to avoid any contact with your lashes for the first 24 hours.

Maintenance / Refill Information

Refills of your eyelash extensions are usually required within 2-4 weeks depending on your natural lash cycle and also how well you take care of your lashes. Any Set that is over 4 weeks old will be charge as a new set.

For the first 24 hours, you must not:

- Wet or rub your brows

- Apply any cream or oils around the area

- Apply any make up on the brows

- Take a sauna, steamy showers or sweat excessively

- Sleep on your face 

Lip Blush Tattoo

Immediately following the procedure, lips may feel dry, chapped, tight and tender to the touch. 

 

Complete your antiviral medication to prevent an outbreak.

 

Apply Vaseline on lips several times a day. This should be done for at least 10 days post treatment.  Do not allow lips to become dry. This may interfere with healed color. During the day if lips feel dry, apply a light layer of Vaseline. Make sure to dab/press onto skin, do not rub it in.

 

Itching is normal, DO NOT PICK!

 

No soaps, cleansing creams, or chemicals on lips. Wash your face carefully avoiding the lip area for 10 days.

 

Avoid moisture to the lips such as hot soups and hot coffee for 10 days. Drink everything through a straw until lips completely peel. 

 

DO NOT stretch the lips. Avoid biting into large sandwiches, etc.  Cut food into tiny bites.

 

Do not bite into greasy, oily, salty or spicy foods, rather cut them up and place them into your mouth. 

 

While eating, do not constantly wipe your lips with a napkin or keep licking your lips at this will impede the healing process. DO NOT PICK dry healing tissue or you WILL remove the pigment color!

 

Avoid water on the new pigmented areas as much as possible, the first 7 days. (when showering, washing face, etc. have ointment on the pigmented area to protect lips from water). Do not stand in front of shower head when showering.

Avoid underwater swimming and batching for a minimum of 4 weeks to avoid bacterial infection.

Before brushing your teeth, seal lips with Vaseline first. Put cotton balls in gum areas so toothbrush will not rub against the lips. No whitening toothpaste (during the healing process). Use a small amount of toothpaste. Take a straw with you to the bathroom to retrieve water to swish with. Do not bleach/whiten your teeth while your lips are healing (about 2 weeks).

You may apply an ice pack (which must be protected with a wet barrier film of paper toweling, towel or cloth) for 10-minute intervals for the first 48 hours. Ice may be applied every hour or so, if desired. Do not put ice directly on area.

Do not expose the lips to direct sunlight or tanning beds for 4 weeks. This is new skin and will sunburn easily and direct sun prematurely may also cause scarring and alter pigment color.

 

You may wear lipstick, lipgloss, and chapstick after 10 days, make sure the tube of lip product is new.

Sleeping slightly elevated will help prevent swelling. It’s recommended to sleep on your back on a satin pillow case. If the pillowcase is not satin, you may also wrap your pillowcase at night and replace with a fresh wrap in the morning. This keeps pigment from sticking to the pillowcase at night.

 

No smoking while lips are healing (10 days minimum).

 

No kissing, rubbing or friction on your newly tattooed lips until after 10 days or you may lose pigment.

 

Lips may be dry for 3 to 6 months depending on the body reaction.

 

Expect moderate swelling, usually one to three days following the procedure. Scabbing may make the lips feel thick. Lips will fade up to 50% after the first 5 days. While healing, the tattoo will look patchy. This is due to skin regeneration and healing. Two or three sessions may be required to achieve the desired results. Please be patient.  Cosmetic tattooing is a multiple-step appointment process with a healing time of approximately 6 weeks in between touch up appointments.

 

The above Pre and Post-Care for lips will affect how quickly or slowly you heal. Mature age, poor diet, stress, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, age, general health, sleep/fatigue. The more fatigued you are the lower your immune system is and infection is more likely to occur. Please get plenty of rest and drink lots of water to hydrate prior to procedure.
