POST-CARE FOR EYES
· Do not wear contact lenses during the procedure or for 24 hrs after.
· Have sunglasses available. Eyes may be light sensitive or even dilated immediately after. The sunglasses are also handy for hiding puffy eyes.
· Take Tylenol as necessary for discomfort.
· Eyes may feel dry or irritated. Lubricating refresher drops may be used.
· Apply the ointment with clean fingers twice daily for 10 days after cleaning. No scrubbing or rubbing.
· Do not pick or pull off the sloughing pigment, let it fall off naturally! Itching is normal.
· You may apply a clean ice pack (which must be protected in ziplock) for 5-minute intervals if needed. Do not put ice directly on the area, as you could burn yourself.
· Refrain from wearing makeup on or around the eyes for a minimum of 10 days.
· Refrain from eyelash extensions for a minimum of 2 weeks post your eyeliner procedure.
· NO underwater swimming and bathing for 3 weeks to avoid bacterial infection.
· Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, steamy showers, and hot baths for 10 days, all these causes pores to open and can push the pigment out.
·Expect moderate swelling, usually one to three days following the eyeliner procedure. While healing, the eyeliner tattoo will look spotty. This is due to healing skin regeneration. Multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired results.
REASONS YOU MIGHT NOT BE A GOOD CANDIDATE
.Upcoming vacation, weddings, and special occasions
· Pregnant or nursing

· Skin irritations or psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)

If you have had any type of eye surgery, including cataract, Lasik, and/or blepharoplasty, you must consult your physician and get clearance. Most physicians require 3-9 months before you can have your eyeliner done. This is because there is slight pressure and stretching on and around the eye during the procedure
Protect your investment after you’ve healed!
· Exposure to the sun and tanning beds will cause premature fading and discoloration of the pigment.
· For further sun protection wear hats, sunglasses, and stay in the shade!
