Caring for Your Lash Extensions, Permanent Makeup, and More

Aftercare for Lash Extensions

Lash Extensions are a luxury and require some love to keep them looking their best! Follow these aftercare tips to keep your lashes living their best life!

  • Keep them dry for the first 24 hours. This will allow the glue to fully cure, thus securing the extension to your lash. After the first day of keeping your lashes dry, daily cleansing is needed to keep any excess oil from building up, wash away any makeup from the day, and keep your set looking soft and fluffy. No clumpy lashes here!
  • Avoid saunas, steam, direct sun, or excessive heat like a the air from an open oven or grill, or a blow dryer/hair straightener. Your lashes can and will singe. Another reason is because the glue becomes malleable under high temperatures. This can lead to lashes sticking together once cooled.
  • Grooming tools to avoid: eyelash curlers, blow dryers (mostly on the front of your face), curling irons, and other heat-sourced grooming hair care products. This doesn't mean you can never style your hair, just be cautious when framing your face and try to use a cooler setting to protect your lashes.

  • Please do not pick or pull lashes. Try not to sleep on your face, or get a silk pillowcase/eyemask to protect your lashes while you sleep. Lash extensions are glued to your natural lash. To get false lashes put on, we need your natural lashes to be healthy and clean. Pulling or picking your extensions can damage the hair follicle it is attached to, resulting in poor retention and lash loss.
  • Know that oil is the enemy! Your body is great at fighting off foreign things, like lashes! Your body does this by producing natural oils that can build up over time. Make sure you wash your lashes at least once a week to prevent buildup. Always use oil-free face care products.
  • Saltwater is enemy #2. This includes the ocean water, pool water, tears and sweat! If you sweat or cry excessively, make sure to rinse off your lashes. When you're done with the pool or beach, make sure to rinse them off with clean water. This is to avoid the glue drying out and becoming brittle.
  • Mascara is a huge no-no. Why? Because it causes your false lashes to stick together, and it is incredibly hard to remove from your false lashes. Also, the ingredients can compromise the adhesion resulting in a premature lash loss. If you insist on wearing makeup with your lashes, look for lash extension-friendly brands, like our vivid black liquid eyeliner. With that said, wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is still a big no-no; as an alternate option, we offer bottom lash tinting.

Aftercare for Permanent Makeup

Everyone wants to wake up looking flawless and ready for the day with little to no morning routine. Permanent makeup is one way to accomplish that goal. Though permanent makeup is a long-term solution, it is not without any upkeep. To maintain your gorgeous new look, follow these tips below!

  • The healing process is approximately 4-6 weeks. Keep the treated area clean, dry, and clear of any makeup or lotions during the healing process.
  • Stay away from saunas, steam rooms, and sunbeds until the healing process is complete.
  • If you experience any itching or flakiness, do not worry, as it is normal. Do your best to avoid scratching the treated area. Instead, simply tap to alleviate the itch.
  • When cleansing the area, use a q-tip with gentle soap and water. Simply pat dry; it is important to avoid rubbing the spot.
  • Before applying any ointment to the treated area, consult your therapist. Approved healing balms, such as A&D ointment, may be used for dry skin up to 3 times a day. If your skin is oily, you may not need to use any balms.
  • Once healed, you may live life normally. Just be cautious of excess sun exposure. It can cause pigment to fade. Avoid direct sun and always use sunscreen.
  • If you are to have any of the following events, please let those individuals performing the procedure that you have had permanent makeup applied.
  1. MRI – Inform your doctor of the permanent makeup prior to the MRI.
  2. Chemical Peel/Other medical procedure – Inform the therapist. Only schedule once fully healed.
  3. Giving Blood – Inform the nurse of your permanent makeup as it may alter your results.

Permanent Makeup may require touch-ups; it is common to need one 4-6 weeks after the first session. Once this has passed, you may not need to come but once every 12-18 months. Remember, everyone's skin is different and may require more or less upkeep.

For Perm & Tint Aftercare for Perm & Tint

Perming is for more than just kinky hair! We use perming solutions to create the perfect eyelash and brows. These services are lash lifts and brow lamination. Perms are great for quick results that last the life cycle of your hair and require minimal maintenance. However, there are some key takeaways to follow when keeping up with your new low-maintenance service.

  • Avoid getting the area wet for 24–48 hours. Water can cause the perm to fall out.
  • Avoid steam, saunas, or excessive heat as it can cause the perm to fall out.
  • Once outside of the 48 hours, you may resume your lifestyle normally with the inclusion of wearing any mascara, lotions, etc.

It is normal to get this service repeated every 4–6 weeks. Some clients may be able to go longer without having the process repeated. The perm will last until the permed hairs have naturally been shed.


For Fibroblast Plasma Therapy Aftercare for Fibroblast Plasma Therapy

Oh to be like Madonna and be young forever! Fibroblast plasma therapy is such a great nonsurgical treatment to combat and reduce the appearance of fine line, wrinkles, and the occasional pesky skin tag. This long-term solution does require upkeep during the 8–12 weeks healing process. Check out some good aftercare tips for your new treatment <3.

  • We cannot stress enough, DO NOT SCRUB OR PICK AT SCABS! This can lead to infection, scarring, or hyperpigmentation.
  • Weeping at the treatment site is simply liquid plasma oozing from the scab area and is a natural wound healing response. The oozing will subside on its own, and the crusts will flake off after a few days.
  • Natural moisturizers or hyaluronic acid are great choices for keeping the skin hydrated. Hyaluronic acid can attract 1,000 times its weight in water, making it an excellent hydrator. Moisture is the key to proper healing and enhanced outcomes.
  • To reduce redness and swelling, ice packs can be applied to the area. A red LED light immediately following treatment will improve healing and decrease swelling.
  • Hydrating masks can be used after 7 days if no harsh ingredients or exfoliants are present in the formulation.
  • Alcohol-based face wash, facial brushes, scrubs, or exfoliating face washes should be discontinued until the scabs have fallen off. Clean the area with water and a gentle pH-balanced cleanser twice a day. Harsh cleansers will hinder healing in the area by further irritating delicate skin.
  • Be sure to stay away from salt or chlorine pools and hot tubs for a week following treatment.

For 12-24 Hours After Treatment

  • Do not wear makeup
  • Do not apply scented lotion

For 24-48 Hours After Treatment

  • No sauna
  • No tanning beds
  • No sun exposure
  • No Botox
  • No collagen injections
  • No dermal fillers

For 1 Week After Treatment

  • No pools or hot tubs
  • Do not use anti-aging creams
  • Do not use AHAs, glycolic acid, or Vitamin A derivatives

Throughout the Course of Treatment

  • SPF 30 and above to be worn daily

In the rare cases where aftercare instructions are ignored, swelling can persist for more than three days. If treated near the eye area, this can even interfere with vision. Anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen or antihistamines may be helpful for swelling; consult with a doctor first.
