CARING FOR YOUR NEW TATTOO
BROWS (NANO, COMBO AND MICROBLADING, 6-8 WEEKS)
Most clients require at least two sessions for ideal results. The 1st session is to build shape and gain symmetry; the 2nd session is to perfect the brows and add density. Nano brows tend to heal faster than combo or microbladed brows, with minimal bleeding/scabbing.
Day 1 We will provide you with an aftercare kit, including distilled water wipes and a barrier ointment. Gently wipe your eyebrow tattoo with the provided distilled water wipes every 2 - 3 hours after your appointment. Do not apply the barrier ointment until the second day.
Day 2-14 Gently pat your brows 2 to 3 times a day with a damp cotton pad and apply a thin layer of the provided ointment once in the morning and once at night. Do not excessively apply the ointment as over-hydration of the skin may cause problems with the pigment retention. The amount applied should not exceed the size of a grain of rice.
Eyebrow tattoos normally last 1 to 2.5 years depending on lifestyle, skin type and aftercare. Yearly touch-ups with Symmetry Ink are recommended to maintain your results.
Do not do laser your brow area (IPL). Some lasers may change the color of the ink.
Additional eyebrow makeup application may still be required post tattoo to achieve your desired look.
LIP BLUSH (7-10 DAYS)
The color of your lip tattoo will appear vibrant for the first few days and will gradually fade about 40 to 60 percent depending on your natural lip color.
Day 1-5 The lips will experience moderate swelling, flaking and bruising. Apply a cold compress to reduce swelling for up to 15 minutes at a time.
Day 4-7 Expect your lips to scab during this period. Remember not to pick! You can also help the healing process by avoiding irritants such as spicy foods.
Day 7-10 Routinely spread the provided aftercare balm to moisturize lips.
