After Care

Once Miss V has finished your new Ink, the next step is after care. Careful and diligent care is key to ensuring high quality, long lasting results. Cosmetic and paramedical tattoos differ slightly from regular tattoos so please follow the instructions below for your treatment(s).

BROWS AFTERCARE

Aftercare

  • Day 1 : Wipe the brows at: 30 minutes post then every 1.5 hours, minimum 5-6 times.

  • Day 2 : Wipe the brows morning, midday, and night.

  • Day 3-5 : Leave brows alone, allow them to dry up (no water, creams, or makeup near brows)

  • Day 6 : Start balm 1x per day. Apply thin layer in the morning until scabs are off

What To Expect

  • Day 1-5 : Brows will appear darker and thicker. Scabbing forming over the strokes.

  • Day 5-9 : Scabs start to fall off, brows may appear patchy (balm will help with flaking/itching)

  • Day 9-12 : Pigment may look milky or light due to thin layer of scar tissue (this is normal!)

  • Day 12-21 : Pigment will “come back” as the scar tissue heals and the brow strokes will darken.

 

How To Care For Your Brows

  • Day 1-7 : NO SWEATING / GYM / WATER  - wash your face with a washcloth - lean hair back on tub

  • Day 8 : You can start washing your face and hair normally

  • Day 1-14 : Avoid facials

  • Day 1-21 : No hot sun (use sunscreen once scabs fall off)

 

*The strokes that did not stay will be put back at the touch-up appointment. Trust the process*

LASH LINE AFTERCARE

Taking care of your new eye liner tattoo is simple! Please follow the below instructions for the best possible healed results:

 

  • ​Keep your eye area dry for the first 7 days, using a face cloth or wipe to cleanse your face

  • When showering during the initial 7 days, don’t use very hot water to avoid steam

  • Do not wear eye makeup or mascara for the first week


Do not use any lotions or products on the eyelids containing acids or anti aging products from now moving forward, to avoid premature fading.

Swelling is normal after your procedure; you may use dry-wrapped ice gel packs and take an antihistamine the day of the procedure

LIP BLUSH AFTERCARE

Please follow the below instructions for the best healed results possible:

 

  • For the first 24 hours, keep lips free of water by using straws to drink and eating carefully (avoid hot beverages)

  • Apply Vaseline liberally to the lips beginning immediately after your appointment and for the following 2 weeks

  • Do not pick, bite, or pull on your scabbing/flaking!!

  • Do not expose your lips to hot direct sunlight for 3 weeks

  • After you are fully healed, apply sunscreen to your lips when in hot, sunny climate


Please allow a full 3 weeks of healing in order to see the true tone of your lip blush.

 

BROW LAMINATION AFTERCARE
 

Taking care of your brow lamination is simple! Follow the below steps for maintenance and care:
 

  • Do not wet your brows for 48 hours

  • Avoid touching your brows and surrounding area at the risk of transferring oils

  • Do not apply makeup to the brows for 24 hours post-treatment

  • Do not apply Retin A, AHA’s, or exfoliate the brow are for 72 hours post-treatment

  • Apply Lacquer Brow Balm daily (we suggest before bed)

  • Comb the brow hairs into place daily


No self-tanning products should be used on the face for at least 48 hours post-treatment

This procedure involves the chemical treatment of your brow hairs. What does this mean? Just like when you dye your hair, you will likely experience a little bit of dryness after your lamination. Daily use of the Brow Balm will aid in conditioning the hair, and maintaining hair health for your next appointment!
