June after-care reminders…
With Gentle Cosmetic Tattoo being well underway for quite a few years, we advise over cosmetic tattoo and its after-care.
Micro-blading, micro-feathering, feathering and semi-permanent makeup, call it what you will is still implanting cosmetic tattoo pigments superficially (between the dermal and epidermal layer) into the skin. These are implemented with a small device into which a needle assembly is inserted, or a small machine depending on the procedure required.
Any makeup or lotions apart from those suggested at the time of your session should be left until after the areas have healed. This would usually be 7 to 10 days. When after-care cream is suggested use sparingly at night and morning, and during the day for comfort.
Your skin will be settled and well ready to receive your 2nd procedure, 3 to 8 weeks after the first.
Please do not try to hurry the peeling process. Sometimes people cannot help but pick or rub the area. I understand, however it is worth waiting for your cosmetic tattoo to gently exfoliate on its own. At the sign of any infection, contact your pharmacist or cosmetic tattooist.
If your semi-permanent makeup is itchy, a sign it is healing nicely, a little after-care cream will sooth. Be aware that workouts, swimming, sauna, tanning beds or sun, does not help your skin retain new tattoo makeup. I often suggest an SPF balm, for ongoing protection of new brows.
Most salons will advise you to wait for their skin treatments, knowing you have had, or are preparing to see a cosmetic tattooist.
Gentle Cosmetic Tattoo uses iron oxide free pigments and all latest pigments to suit your skin.
