What to expect after a Permanent Makeup procedure

What to do immediately after a permanent makeup procedure?  There are multiple methods.

Most permanent makeup artist will provide an aftercare instruction sheet.  Follow carefully and ask questions if something is not certain.
Aftercare instructions are important for maximum color retention.

Please note: The day after the procedure, you permanent makeup may appear darker and bigger.   But don't panic, if the correct pigment was used on your brows, they will lighten after about 2 weeks.

Slight swelling, but not noticeable to the eye.  While healing, you may notice dryness and flaking of the skin.  Hairstroke procedures will flake less than Soft Filled procedures.  Do not use moisturizer or makeup to cover up.   Most importantly, do not pick at the flakes of skin.  Just let it heal.  The first week, the color will be dark, but by week 2, the color will lighten and soften.

Slight swelling lasts about 3 to 4 days.  Depending on your skin and lifestyle, some people swell more than others.  The morning after the procedure is when you'll be the most swollen.  Thereafter, slight puffiness is typical for few more days.  Slight tenderness to the touch is acceptable.  If the swelling is severe, painful, and it alters your vision, call your doctor immediately.  Avoid alcohol and salty foods for several days to minimize puffiness.

You will have Angelina Jolie lips for about 2 days.  The color will be extremely dark until your lips exfoliate, approximately 4 to 5 days.  Once healed, the color looks natural, not like lipstick.  For the lip procedure, it is recommended to use the AfterCare Ointment for minimum of 2 weeks.  It's recommended for men and women losing their natural pigment on the lips.

Average complete heal time for all permanent makeup procedure is 3 to 4 weeks.  Lip pigment may take up to 8 weeks to surface.
