    • Wash the eye area twice a day with baby shampoo for 7-10 days. Use your fingertips to gently but thoroughly cleanse the area, including in the lash line. Rinse well, and pat dry gently with a paper towel or CLEAN cotton towel. 
    • For thicker eyeliners, aftercare ointment can be applied to relieve tightness/discomfort while healing. Apply a VERY thin layer to freshly washed skin. Only apply if your skin feels like it needs it, otherwise, no balm is needed

    What to Expect

    Swelling in the first 3 days is common. Sleeping slightly elevated and/or soft gel icepacks can help reduce this. 

    Day 1-3: Eyes feel Sore and heavy, possibly red and stingy. Swelling may occur and eyes will start to form scabs.
    Day 4-5: Swelling reduces and eyes start to feel normal. Skin may feel dry and itchy, scabs start to peel and look patchy.
    Day 6-10: 70-100% of scabs fall of in this time. Color may look very light and thinner, color may look uneven
    Week 2-4: Deep healing is going on and color will start to return as the skin heals more thoroughly.
    Week 8: Touchup time!
