Permanent Makeup – Aftercare

Aftercare Permanent Makeup – Traditional method

The care you take during the healing process influences the healed result.

  • DO NOT PICK, PEEL OR RUB the area as this will effect the healing of the colour.
  • Disturbing the area carries a risk infection which could lead to scarring.
  • Allow the colour to exfoliate naturally.

If you do not feel the colour is “too much” after your treatment, you will not get the result you hope for.

Permanent Makeup Aftercare

In brief


On the first day

Use cotton tips to apply balm as required. Use fresh buds and do not redip which ensures you do not cross contaminate the balm or touch the area with fingers.

On following days

  • Clean your enhancement twice daily, if needed, with damp cotton pads (and NanoSilver). Apply a small amount of the oil. The area should not look oily once applied.


Use small pot of clear aftercare for rest of day to ease discomfort. This is numbing cream – AVOID HOT DRINKS AND FOOD until you discontinue use of this product. Use the balm little and often to keep procedure supple until healing is complete. Only use products provided or sterile Vaseline/Bepathen

Continue with use of Acilivoir as directed to benefit from this medication.

Brows and Eyes

Only use products provided or sterile Vaseline/Bepathen. Apply twice daily or as needed until area has healed and skin is no longer dry.


Avoid the treated area for 5 days. Makeup can be applied as normal to untreated areas.

Sun and Tanning Beds

No direct exposure for seven days. We recommend using “total sun block” once the area has healed.

Baths, Showers and Cleansing

Avoid touching the treated area directly. Blot dry with a clean towel, do not rub.

Sports/Wet/Damp Environments

Allow healing to establish before recommencing.


There may be some swelling the on the day or the following day. This is a normal part of the healing process. Mild swelling may occur to the eyebrows, eyeliners will usually swell the following day and appear as if you have been crying. This passes within a few hours to a few days. Lips can be tender and swollen for a few days.

Ice packs, anti-histamine and ibuprofen post treatment can be beneficial.


This is a sign that the treatment is healing. The excess colour exfoliates naturally around day seven. You can gently slough excess pigment away with a clean dry flannel (upon waking when the area is very dry) if it begins to look patchy.


The pigment will appear very obvious, dark and intense until around day seven. The skin will then exfoliate and the colour will look lighter and softer. New procedures should expect some unevenness of colour which will be addressed in the inclusive appointment, to be attended within 6 to 8 weeks later.

If you do not attend, or give sufficient notice to cancel, your scheduled re-touch appointment you will be charged for any further treatment.

Long Term

Use a good sun screen and avoid the use of glycolic, retinol or peels over the pigment as this will increase exfoliation and fading of colour. Remember to have your Annual Colour Boost to maintain definition and colour.
