For the first 3 - 6 days, the color intensity of your procedure will be significantly darker, as well as larger and sharper than what is expected for the final outcome. Although the area will appear healed after 10 days, it will not be fully healed for 4-6 weeks (8 weeks for lips) to reveal the actual color, this is based on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates.

One procedure, will not guarantee desired outcome. In some cases, we need to see how our clients react to the pigment and review the healing process after the first procedure. Therefore, we offer one free touch-up visit within 3 months of the first procedure. In very complicated cases (involving removal/color correction/camouflage/scar tissue/iron disorder) an extra charge may apply on extra touch-ups. If you sleep on your side or face down, please let us know as there are special instructions.

For All Procedures
  • • 2-3 hours after your procedure, gently splash the area with cold water, then use the sterile sodium chloride cotton ball to gently remove body fluids. Use a sterile Q-tips,re-apply your aftercare product.
  • • Keep the area MOISTURIZED. Use Aftercare as an after care anti-oxidant (or Vaseline). Gently apply every 1-2 hours or when you feel tender, itchy or dry for 10–14 days. This provides pain relief, moisturizes and promotes healing to help retain color.
  • • Avoid soaps/facial cleansers on pigmented areas (wash around them), pat dry with a clean towel.
  • • Before showering, apply Vaseline on pigmented area. Do not directly shower the treated area.
  • • Before sleeping, apply a thicker layer of Vaseline to keep the area moisturized overnight. Try to sleep on your back.
  • • DO NOT rub, scratch or pick any crust along the tattooed area. Early removal of pigment crusts may result in lost colour.
  • • DO NOT apply makeup on the pigmented area during the healing process. (10-14 days)
  • • Avoid swimming, soaking, steam bath and facials for the 1st week.
  • • Avoid applying Exfoliates or AHA/glycolic acid products to the tattooed area for at least 2 weeks.
  • • Avoid sun exposure (including tanning beds) during healing process.
  • • The eyebrows may be swollen for the first few hours. The color will look darker for the first 5 days until the scab peels off, at this time it will lighten by 40%.

Long Term Care
  • • Use a good sunscreen daily on Microbladed area(s) otherwise the color will fade faster.
  • • Our pigment is iron-oxide based which your body slowly absorbs, the color will fade over time. You may desire touch-ups every 1- 3 years.
  • • If you are planning a chemical peel, MRI or other medical procedure, please tell the technician that you have an iron-oxide cosmetic tattoo.
  • • If you are planning to have laser treatment, tell your laser specialist to avoid the pigmented area. Laser may cause pigment to darken.
