EYE LINER PREP

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT. NOT ADHERING TO THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAN IMPACT YOUR HEALED RESULTS.

  • It is recommended to eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the procedure.

  • No excessive alcohol or caffeine consumption 24 hours before your procedure. Alcohol and caffeine can thin the blood, which causes the skin to be hypersensitive, and bleed/bruise more easily.

  • Avoid sun tanning one week prior to the procedure.

  • Avoid blood thinning medications for 24 hours before the procedure. This includes Aspirin, Niacin (Vitamin B3), Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen, fish oils tablets. Please consult your physician if this is an issue.

  • Eyelash extensions should be removed 3 days prior to the procedure.

  • No eyelash perm and/or tinting at least 3 days prior.

  • Discontinue Retin-A one week prior to the procedure.

  • No Botox around the eye area 2 weeks prior.

  • Eyelash growth serums like Latisse bring extra circulation to the lash line area which results in more growth of hair/lashes. This can cause the skin to be hypersensitive and bleed easily. It is recommended to discontinue the use of these products at least 3-6 months before your treatment.

  • Do not wear any eye makeup on the day of your appointment.

  • If you wear contact lenses, please wear glasses on the day of your appointment.

  • Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

EYE LINER AFTER CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Splash your eyes with water and wash off any pigment residue immediately after the procedure.

  • Pat dry gently with a clean tissue.

  • Wash the skin around the eyes twice a day (morning & night) using a gentle, unscented soap (Cetaphil or baby shampoo). Use your fingertips to cleanse gently and pat dry with a clean tissue.

  • Apply ointment 2-3 times a day for up to 7 days for thick eyeliner (OMIT FOR LASH LINE  ENHANCEMENT).

  • Dry skin/Flakiness will take about 7 -10 days to peel off. Do not pick at your new tattoo or peel skin off prematurely.

  • Swelling and redness is normal for the first few days. Slight stinging sensation in the first few days is also normal.

  • The colour will fade approximately 30-50% lighter when the scabs fall off. This is completely  normal. Do not feel discouraged if the fading is more than you expected.

  • To achieve the perfect eyeliner, we need to see how your skin accepts the initial application and a touch-up appointment is where we will perfect the shape and colour.

  • No eye makeup is allowed until the scabs completely fall off.  

  • Avoid sweaty exercises such as hot saunas, hot yoga, and swimming.

 

SCABBING

  • The eyeliner will start to form scabs and they might look dark and thick. As the skin heals, the scabs will fall off in random pieces and might look patchy.

  • Flaking and crusting on the tattoo area may occur.

  • Avoid pulling off the scabs that are dried on the lashes.

  • When you try to pull off the scabs that are hanging on your lashes, ensure the scabs are soft enough to slide off from the lashes. Use a mascara brush to help remove the scabs.

 

SWELLING

  • Swelling occurs up to 3 days after the procedure, especially in the morning.

  • Exercising the eyes can help reduce swelling and puffiness. Try blinking actively for 2 minutes in the morning.

  • To relieve swelling, you can ice the area with soft gel ice packs.
