Aftercare is key. If you can keep the area clean and don't pick, your procedures will heal quickly and look beautiful.
You may notice whiteness or blanching around the area, this is quite normal and will subside in a few hours. Do not allow water to go directly onto the treated area for at least 8 days or until scabbing has fallen naturally. If it does, please blot dry with clean gauze - do not wipe.
The area may still be numb and be slightly swollen. The numbing will subside within a couple of hours. The swelling should subside within 2 days. In some cases there may be bruising. This should last no longer than 1 week. If the area weeps, you can gently blot the area with tissue to remove the moisture. Do not rub.
If you are given aftercare ointment for your procedures, use sparingly. Over use may affect pigment retention.
DO NOT PICK OR PULL AT THE AREA - IT MAY RESULT IN INFECTIONS AND/OR PIGMENT LOSS.
YOUR TREATMENT SHOULD FOLLOW THESE HEALING PHASES:
As soon as your procedure is finished your body will start to heal. The skin will close and may feel tight. You may also see a thin scab which protects the area whilst healing.
After a few days the scab will fall away and you will see pigment.
You will see a lighter hue of implanted colour. This colour will change over 4/6 weeks.
MY TOP TIPS:
Consider using a waterproof, total sunblock. Sun exposure will fade your procedure and the colour may change.
Beware of strong chemical or glycolic/acid peels of any kind as they may cause pigment to lighten.
Keep your procedure looking its best. Book a colour boost procedure 6-12 months following the second visit.
