Aftercare instructions for permanent eyeliner

Immediately Following Eyeliner Procedure:

  • Apply ice to the treated area for 10 to 15 minutes every few hours or so. Ice helps
    reduce swelling and aids in the healing.
  • Place a small amount on a clean cotton swab so you
    can control the amount applied. If you can see it - it’s too much!
  • Repeat this process until the next morning.. After that, do not do anything. Just let it
  • In 4 to 5 days, you will notice little “pepper-like” flakes on your face. This means the
    crust is flaking off. You will then see a much lighter color, which will soften over time


  • Your eyeliner will initially look thicker, darker, and more sharply defined.
  • Showering is fine. But don't let the water hit directly on your eyes. This could knock off
    the scabs and remove the color.
  • Do not use mascara or eyelash curlers for seven days after the procedure. When you
    resume use, purchase a new tube of mascara. The old tube may contain bacteria.
  • The day after your procedure, it will look like you had a good cry.
  • Your eyes may appear swollen for 24 to 36 hours.
  • Sleep slightly elevated. Some people find that taking an antihistamine before bed
    reduces inflammation.


Remember it's a process!
