Permanent makeup creates wounds to the skin, therefore you must to keep the treated area clean and dry for 1 week, because germs love moisture.
If you follow the right aftercare you will ensure a fast recovery, prevent premature colour fading and complications such as infection.
These recommendations refer to healing the skin in general so you can follow it for almost all type of permanent makeup care, except from lips.
All permanent makeup procedures must heal, peel and fade. They will be much darker for the first 7-10 days or until the tissue has healed due to a mixture of blood, lymph (clear, watery fluid) and stained pigment on the skin surface. After the area peels, the color will be softer. Most tattoos fade up to 30% within the first month.
While the skin is in the process of forming of healing, the lymphatic fluids is active and you may see secretion or ooze on the skin. This is normal, but the fluid must be cleaned off to prevent hardening and the formation of a thick, hard scab. Thick scabs are known to take great amounts of the ink with them when they fall off. Wiping the lymphatic fluid off will promote the growth of a thin, soft scab. Thin scabs that flake off on their own are the key to successful ink retention.
