Swelling (like you have been crying) is normal for a few days. If it persists past 2 days, please call immediately. Benadryl can be taken to reduce swelling if needed as well.
Apply ice in a clean sanitary zip lock bag to treated area for 10-30 minutes to reduce swelling 2 or 3 times a day as needed. The less swelling that you have, the better that your skin will take the color.
Sometimes it looks more like mascara flakes. This is normal. Do not pick at the epithelial crust (scab) during the healing process or it can remove the color, resulting in the need for touchup. Allow the scabs to fall off naturally.
Scabs usually appear around the 3rd day. The healing process is complete when it is done scabbing.
Do not expose treated area to direct sunlight during the healing process.
Remember that colors appear brighter, darker and more sharply defined immediately following the procedure. As the healing progresses, color will soften and look more natural, lightening 20% for eye.
The color does not stabilize for 4 weeks.
AFTER Cosmetic EYELINER Procedure: Healing time averages 5 days
Do not stretch the outside area or your eye if you got the corners connected or you can cause the pigment to migrate.
No mascara, no lash enhancer, make up, cleansing creams, chemicals, or water on eyes for 5 days.
Apply a thin layer of ointment with a clean Q Tip on eyeliner the first 2 nights to prevent eyes from sticking together.
*Any touch up appointments must be made 4 weeks after initial procedure to ensure proper healing and prevent scarring.
