EYELASH ENHANCEMENT, CLASSIC LINER & SMOKEY LINER AFTERCARE

The eyelid has the thinnest epidermal layer of skin on your body- about half a millimeter. Because of this, some tenderness and redness is to be expected after the procedure. Some swelling/bruising is possible, but will be very minimal and will subside within 72 hours. Some individuals have larger capillaries on their eyelids than others, so everyone's healing process will be different. If you wear contacts, please do not have your contacts in during the procedure; remember to bring your glasses with you!

Day of procedure: Immediately after the procedure, you may feel some tenderness/discomfort when blinking hard or squinting, which is normal. Your eyeliner may look very dark and bold, but don't worry, as it will heal into the desired color. 

  • After the procedure, make sure to keep the area dry and blot any excess lymph fluid (clear-looking liquid) with a clean gauze/paper towel. Doing this will prevent the hardening of any lymphatic fluids and will reduce the chances of developing thick scabs. 

  • 2-3 hours after the procedure, gently wash the treated area with a gentle, unscented facial cleanser. Gently pat the area dry with a clean paper towel and allow it to air dry for a few minutes. After the area is dry, gently apply a very thin layer of ointment over the treated area with clean fingers or a clean cotton swab. Do not apply a thick layer of ointment, as that could potentially interfere with the pigments that were placed onto the lash line.

Day 2-4: You may experience some swelling and slight redness, which is normal. You still may feel some tenderness/discomfort when blinking hard or squinting. You may start noticing scabs forming during this time. The color will become lighter as the epidermis sloughs off and the skin heals over the pigment.

  • Gently wash the treated area twice a day (morning and night) with a gentle, unscented facial cleanser. Gently pat the area dry with a clean paper towel and allow it to air dry for a few minutes. After the area is dry, gently apply a very thin layer of ointment over the treated area with clean fingers or a clean cotton swab.

Day 5-14: Swelling and redness should have subsided by this point. You may experience some itchiness and scabbing during this time. Do not rub or itch the treated area. Let the the scabs naturally flake-off by themselves. The treated area may have a "milky" appearance to it.

  • Gently wash the treated area twice a day (morning and night) with a gentle, unscented facial cleanser. Gently pat the area dry with a clean paper towel and allow it to air dry for a few minutes. After the area is dry, gently apply a very thin layer of ointment over the treated area with clean fingers or a clean cotton swab.

Day 15+: Your eyeliner procedure should be almost fully healed by this point. The "milky" color should have almost subsided by this point, making the color of the eyeliner color appear darker/more bold. You may notice some inconsistencies in the shape/color of the eyeliner. It is common to lose around 30-50% of the color after the initial procedure, which is why the Perfecting Session is essential! You may have your perfecting session 4-8 weeks after the initial appointment. 

Eyelash extensions can not be worn during the procedure. You must remove your eyelash extensions prior to your procedure, as they could cause irritation and a possible infection. Also, I need to tattoo very close/on the lash line, so eyelash extensions will prevent me from doing so. You may get your eyelash extensions put back on after your eyeliner procedure is fully healed.

Avoid eyelash curlers, makeup on the eyelid, mascara on the lashes and false lashes until the treated area is healed, as this may cause irritability and a possible infection. 

*Please note that everyone's healing process will be different as everyone heals differently. Some individuals may scab more than average, while others may experience barely any scabbing. Age, skin type, health, diet, sun exposure, pre-existing conditions, etc. all play into how long it will take you to, personally, heal. Some individuals may heal quicker than anticipated, while others take longer than average.
