Aftercare-Guide

Permanent Make-Up

The day of the treatment: Open Aftercare Kit

During the day of the treatment, it is important to use the Aftercare Kit provided. To start, gently blot the treated area with a clean tissue sheet from the kit. This will absorb any excess lymph fluid. It is recommended to do this every few minutes throughout the day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid helps prevent the hardening of the lymph.

Days 1-7: Wash

For the first seven days after the treatment, it is crucial to wash the treated area daily. This helps remove bacteria and dead skin. Don't worry, washing the area will not remove the pigment. To wash, gently cleanse the procedure area every morning and night using water and an antibacterial soap such as Dial Soap, Cetaphil, or Neutrogena. Use your fingertips with a light touch and gently rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds. Rinse thoroughly with water, ensuring that all the soap is rinsed away. Pat the area dry with a clean tissue. Avoid using cleansing products containing acids or exfoliants, as these may interfere with the healing process.

Days 1-7: Moisturize

During the first week, it is important to moisturize the treated area. Take a rice grain-sized amount of the aftercare cream/ointment from your aftercare kit and apply it to the treated area using a cotton swab. Be careful not to over-apply, as this can suffocate the skin and delay the healing process. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Avoid applying the ointment to a wet or damp tattoo. Repeat this process in the morning and at night, a total of two times daily. If extreme scabbing is visible, you can apply the ointment a third time during the day.

Important Reminders

  • Use a fresh pillowcase to avoid any potential contamination.

  • Allow any scabbing or dry skin to naturally exfoliate away. Picking at the area can lead to scarring or loss of color.

  • Avoid facials, Botox, chemical treatments, or microdermabrasion for a period of four weeks after the procedure.

  • Avoid engaging in hot and sweaty exercises for one week following the treatment.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for a duration of four weeks after the procedure. It is recommended to wear a hat when outdoors.

  • Avoid heavy sweating and long hot showers for the first 10 days to allow for proper healing.

  • During the first 10 days, try to avoid sleeping on your face to prevent any disturbances to the treated area.

  • Avoid swimming in pools, lakes, or hot tubs for the first 10 days as exposure to water may interfere with the healing process.

Facials-Skincare

After receiving a facial treatment at Aphros Beauty, it is important to follow some essential guidelines to maintain the health and radiance of your skin. Here are some recommendations

  • Avoid wearing make-up immediately after the facial: To maximize the benefits of the facial treatment and prevent clogged pores, refrain from applying make-up for a minimum of 6-8 hours, or ideally overnight. This will allow your skin to fully absorb the nourishing products used during the facial. Our clients appreciate this convenience, especially when enjoying our in-home facials and homecare products recommended.

  • Avoid additional facial treatments for 48 hours: If any Hydra-Facial, Microdermabrasion or Derma plane facial was done, please give your skin at least 2-3 weeks before any type of facial treatment is completed. Giving your skin some time to rest and recover is crucial. Avoid any other facial treatments or procedures that may potentially irritate or aggravate your freshly exfoliated skin.

  • Take care of your skin: As your skin may be slightly more sensitive than usual, it is advisable to avoid sunbathing, using sunbeds, or exposing your face to excessive heat such as saunas, hot tubs, and hairdryers for the next 12-24 hours. Additionally, refrain from using perfumed or exfoliating products on your face for a couple of days. Instead, apply a broad spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

  • Maintain a skincare routine: To keep your face looking and feeling its best between facials, it is recommended to cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin daily. This will help prevent any damage from make-up and rehydrate your skin from the daily effects of environmental factors. Don't forget to incorporate a broad-spectrum sunscreen into your routine as well and following any aftercare regimen your Esthetician recommends. Furthermore, adopting a healthy lifestyle, including a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and staying hydrated with plenty of water, will contribute to the overall health and appearance of your skin.
