Pre-op Instructions for
Post-op DRY HEALING INSTRUCTIONS
DO NOT GET WET FOR 10 DAYS!!!
Some residual swelling is normal for ALL procedures. Some clients may have no swelling some may have a lot...this is individualized. Dry skin, itching and tenderness are common after the procedure. These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis. Color will fade/soften 30-50%...the touch up will enhance any area that has faded too much. Healing is specific to each client. You will receive 1 free follow-up to make sure the application is best. It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every 1-3 years to maintain its fresh natural appearance. If you are out in the sun a lot, use anti-aging creams, Retinol products, Proactive acne products, heavy oil moisturizers, natural elements, regular chemical peels (Glycolic ect..), or exercise frequently, you will probably need a color boost every 6 mos. to 1yr. The better you take care of the treated area, the longer it will last
Do not forget, this is a “dry-heal”

Absolutely NOTHING on the treated area. No makeup, pencils....etc. for 10 days....Apply Vaseline only before showering, remove after showering. After the 10 days.
