Expect some swelling, redness and tenderness at the treatment site. Colors appear brighter and more sharply defined immediately following the procedure. As healing progresses, the color will soften. A touch-up procedure may or may not be necessary. Final results cannot be determined until healing is complete.
Immediately following your procedure
Apply ice to the treated area for 10-30 minutes. Ice helps reduce swelling and aids in healing.

Areola and camouflage procedures cannot be guaranteed. Treatments vary from patient to patient.
Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may swell slightly, or redden, it is advised not to make social plans for the same day. Lip liner may appear “crusty” for up to one week.
Please wear your normal make-up to the procedure. If you are having lips or brows done, please bring your favorite pencils.
If unwanted hair is normally removed in the area to be treated, i.e.; tweezing or waxing, the hair removal should be done at least 24 hours prior to your procedure. Electrolysis should not be done within five days of the procedure. Do not resume any method of hair removal for a week after the procedure.
If eyelashes or eyebrows are normally dyed, do not have that procedure done within 48 hours of this procedure. Wait one week after the eyebrow or eyeliner procedure before dying lashes or brows.
If you wear contact lenses and are having the eyeliner done, do not wear your lenses to your appointment and do not replace them until the day after the procedure.
If you are having the eyeliner procedure done, as a safety precaution, in case of watering or swelling, we recommend that you have someone available, or accompany you, who could drive you home if you so decide, or if it is necessary.
If you are having lip liner done and have had previous problems with cold sores, fever blisters, or mouth ulcers, the procedure is likely to re-activate the problem. Your Intradermal Cosmetic Technician can make recommendations to help prevent or minimize the outbreak.
