Lash Enhancememt Permanent Eyeliner
what is permanent lash enhancement?
Permanent lash enhancement is a permanent eyeliner/cosmetic tattoo procedure where pigment is implanted at the base of where the lashes grow from, and the spaces in between are filled in to create the illusion of thicker, darker, fuller lashes without the look of obvious eyeliner makeup. This procedure can be done on both the top and bottom lashlines. This is a great procedure for anyone, especially those with sparse, thin lashes, or those who prefer the "no makeup" look, but want beautiful, defined eyes.
- Do not workout on the day of the procedure.
- Do not tan or have a sunburnt face.
- Do not take aspirin, niacin, vitamin E, fish oil, or ibuprofen 24 hours prior to the procedure, to reduce bleeding.
- No alcohol or caffeine for 2 days before the procedure to reduce bleeding.
- Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
- Do not use eyelash curler the day of the procedure.
- LATISSE USERS: stop using Latisse at least 4 weeks before procedure, otherwise the pigment will migrate under your skin.
- Eyelash tinting or perming/curling should be done no sooner than 48 hours before, or 2 weeks after the procedure.
- Remove eyelash extensions a few days before procedure.
- DO NOT wear contact lenses during or within 48 hours following the eyeliner procedure. Remember to bring your glasses. You may resume wearing your contact lenses as soon as your eyes return to their pre-tattooed condition.
- Following the eyeliner procedures, as a safety precaution, bring sunglasses to wear home in case of light sensitivity, or have someone available to accompany you or drive you home.
- If you have had any type of eye surgery, consult with the physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent eyeliner procedure. Most physicians are giving a 2 month ok after cataract, lasik, and blepharoplasty.
- NO water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on treated area for 10 days (unless given to you by me).
- 3-4 hours after your procedure, clean your eyes with sterile water and cotton squares. Clean the surface thoroughly to rid it of any ointment and lymph fluids.
- DO NOT rub, pick, or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking your scabs can cause scarring and will pull the pigment off the skin.
- Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning 3-4 weeks after procedure.
- Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days, the salt in your sweat will fade the pigment.
- NO facials, Botox, chemical treatments, or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
- DO NOT let water touch your eyelids when showering or washing your hair.
- No makeup is to be applied for 72 hours (three days) after the procedure on the tattoo area.
- After any eyeliner procedure, use new a brand new tube of mascara.
- Do not use an eyelash curler for two weeks.
- Never use antibiotic ointment on permanent makeup.
The aftercare is the most important step in the outcome of your investment. Failure to follow these aftercare instructions will produce poor results in your healed eyeliner.
what to expect.
Permanent makeup is a two-step procedure, the initial procedure and the following touch-up 1-3 months after.
After your permanent eyeliner procedure, you may experience slight bruising, slightly puffy to swollen/heavy lids, light sensitivity and bloodshot eyes. Your eyes may feel more swollen than they appear. It’s advisable to sleep in an elevated position to help reduce swelling at night. You may not want to use your best pillowcase the first two nights.
Approximate daily healing schedule:
1: Eyes will be swollen and perhaps a bit "crusty" upon waking. The swelling will reduce after being in an upright position and from blinking and increased circulation to the area. Avoid heavy lifting, physical exertion, and crying.
2: Eyes will be less swollen, but will feel tight. The lash area will feel sore if touched.
3-4: The top layer of skin will begin to flake off in little stitch looking lines, although some people do not notice the exfoliation. DO NOT PICK – you will pull pigment out and end up with uneven color. Blinking helps eliminate the small pieces of pigment and epidermis that has detached. It is important not to pick at it or rub the eyes.
7-9: All shedding should be complete. You are safe to put your face back in the shower spray. During this time, the tattoo may appear to have vanished, this is a normal part of the healing process, and the pigment will re-emerge.
10: Pigment, if faded, should have returned. What you see now is very close to the healed result. If it is not as you like, please wait for the touch-up procedure in 4-6 weeks.
