Eyelash Enhancement and Eyeliner
Usually, eyes are most swollen the morning after the procedure as gravity takes over during the night.
(Also, during the evening you may soil your pillow with residual eyeliner pigment.) However, upon waking the morning after the procedure,
and with normal activity, eyes become much less swollen within a few hours. It is important to keep your eyes moist at all times with
the aftercare ointment. It is best to apply the ointment approximately 2-3 times a day for 5-7 days. Use a fresh Q-tip with each application
of ointment. Do not pick the eyeliner if you notice a little lifting of color. Let it fall off naturally. Do not wear contact lenses
for at least 48 hours following the procedure, however, technically, your eye doctor should advise you as to when you may resume contact
lens use. Do wear sunglasses when in the sun in order to protect the fresh color for the first two weeks. Stay out of sun, pools,
hot tubs and all creams around the eye for two weeks. Do not use any eye makeup for one week, and then please use a fresh tube of
mascara. If there are any other concerns or questions during the healing period, call our salon immediately. (219) 836-1840

of women enjoy the fuller shape of their lips following the procedure. Although you will feel comfortable with the sixe of your lips
following the procedure, you will question the intensity of color on your lips. Be assured that the color of your lips will lighten
significantly in just a few days. It is most important to apply aftercare ointment to your lips consistently during the first week,

your lips. Allow your lips to slough off the pigment naturally. Usually, by day 4 or 5 the sloughing is complete. Your lips, at that
time, will be quite light in color. However, they will begin to become more colorful with each passing week up to 6 weeks. They will
soften into the beautiful shade you have been patiently waiting for. Meanwhile, you may apply an ice pack (which is protected with
a wet barrier film of paper toweling) for 10 minute intervals for the first couple of days. Ice may be applied every hour or so, if
