Permanent Makeup Eyeliner Aftercare
Please remember that like any cosmetic procedure this is a process. Do not expect immediate results and please be patient. It will be a few weeks before you can fully appreciate the final results.
You may experience minor swelling and redness after the procedure. You will also experience oozing and skin peeling (scabbing) during the first week. The color will look darker and the shape might be sharp.
After about a week, the color and edges will soften. While healing treated area will gently exfoliate and you will lose some color (20%-50%). This is a normal process.
Usually, the exfoliation (peeling) process occurs about 4-5 days and will be complete at about 7-10 days. At that point, the contrast between the initial intense color and the new lighter color may be such that you may be disappointed. Do not worry. It is normal you will receive a second pigment application in a few weeks. At that time shape and color will be adjusted to your liking.
The final result of the first treatment will be visible after 3-4 weeks when pigment will stabilize in the skin.
Outer healing completes in about 7-10 days for the eyes.
Inner healing completes in 1-2 months.
Permanent Eyeliner Healing Schedule
1 – 7 days: darkest pigment.
7 – 14 days: pigment may lighten
15 – 30 days: the intensity of the color increases slightly
30 - 62 days: touch up of the pigment.
During natural skin regeneration, after the recovery period treated area might appear lighter than the original.
Often, even with proper care, customers develop bald spots or loose original pigment which makes the treated area look uneven. It is absolutely normal because your natural skin regeneration is not a process that a technician can control.
Most customers need a touch-up after about 4-12 weeks to assure that the desired effect was achieved. Micropigmentation is a process, two or three sessions may be required to achieve desired results. It is not uncommon to lose 20-50% of the color after the first session.
Please remember that with the proper prep and aftercare routine, you will have much better results.
Tip: after the healing is complete the use of sunscreen is recommended to prevent fading. Don’t use harsh products in the treated area.
Permanent Eyeliner After The Procedure
Expect light to moderate swelling and redness. Immediately after the procedure the eyelids will be slightly swollen. Because of swelling the eyeliner will appear to be much thicker and sometimes distorted. In 2-3 days the liner will be reduced in size.
