Thinking of getting a cosmetic tattoo? An eyebrow, eyeliner or lip tattoo may be on your mind. During your procedure, your aesthetician would provide you with your ‘after-care’ advice, here is a simple overview of what you will need to do:

  1. Do not touch your cosmetic tattoo as it can lead to fading
  2. Wait an hour or so to wipe away any lymph fluid on brows and apply cream with cotton buds
  3. Bepanthen is ideal for applying to your permanent makeup for the first few days, mainly as it is so soothing and contains an antiseptic
  4. Keep your cosmetic tattoo clean and moisturised after you leave the clinic
  5. Let your tattoo makeup peel naturally, you may not realize when it has exfoliated
  6. Avoid swimming in the pool or sea, also saunas, spa and long showers are best avoided
  7. UV is a common problem for micropigmentation always use a sunscreen
  8. Apply a cold pack to swelling on lips and eyes, which may occur straight after a cosmetic tattoo
  9. Contact your aesthetician if your tattoo has become red or uncomfortable, it may be infected
