Expect light to moderate swelling and redness. The ice packs may be used to minimize swelling the day of and the day after
the procedure. Use vitamin E around the treated area for 2-3 days following the procedure at least twice a day. You must use

Expect moderate swelling, usually 1 – 2 days following the procedure. Keep moist with vitamin E cream for the next 7 days at
least twice a day, then switch to lipstick with an SPF of 15 or greater, as the sun tends to fade lip color quickly. If you have
ever had a cold sore or a fever blister, you must use ananti-viral medication for pre and post procedure to prevent the

become lighter as the epidermis sloughs off. It will appear that you have lost all your color; however, when your lips have

Remember For 7 days following application of permanent cosmetics:
Avoid direct sun exposure for the first 14 days. After 7 days an SPF of 20 or higher should be applied to the area.
Avoid on the pigmented area: water, soap, facial cleanser, make-up, Retin-A, Glycolic Acids, Peroxide, chlorine pools, salty water, sun
exposure, Jacuzzi, sauna or steamy, long showers.
Avoid swimming, sun beds and sun bathing until the newly treated area is fully healed, as direct sunlight/chlorine can interact with pigments causing skin irritation and inflammation.
Keep the area of pigmentation dry and moist twice a day with the topical cream recommended to you. Use a cotton bud to apply a cream
but please do not use your fingers.
Wash the treated area with water and pat dry.
Avoid unnecessary rubbing, scratching or picking of the treated site while it is healing to reduce the risk of infection.
Always wash and dry your hands before and after handling a newly treated site!
Do not use skin products on the treated area that have not been recommended by your practitioner or are not intended for open wound healing. Continue this regime until the procedure area has completely healed.
