It is highly recommended that you follow Posh Beauty Artistry’s Pre & Post Care instructions to ensure the best possible results and longevity of your paramedical tattoo treatment. This information acts as a guideline only. We cannot guarantee results. Each client’s skin responds differently both in how long it takes to heal, and the number of sessions needed and desired results. It is important that you take good care of your stretch marks or scars while healing and beyond.

 Pre-Care Before the Appointment

 

Shave/wax areas prior if needed

  • No lasering before the treatment

  • No Fish oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the treatment

  • No Alcohol and Caffeine 24 hrs. prior to the treatment

  • No Aspirin or Ibuprofen 3 days prior to the treatment

  • Avoid Smoking beginning 4 weeks prior to the treatment 

  • Wear loose clothes on the treatment day, as the area(s) will be slightly tender.

  • Shower the day of your treatment and gently exfoliate to get rid of any dead cells.

  • Do not wear serums, toners, creams, or other products the day of the treatment.

  • No Sun Tanning, All Self Tanners, including Spray Tans beginning 4 weeks prior to appointment

 

 

Aftercare

WHAT TO EXPECT IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TREATMENT?

 

  • The treated area(s) will be red, swollen, and perhaps even a little tender to the touch. This is normal. Do NOT sleep on the treated area(s) until the swelling goes down, it will subside over the next few days.

  • The next day, the swelling will subside, but the area will remain red.

  • After 72 hours, the redness will turn into brown pigmentation. This hyperpigmentation may last anywhere from 7 to 45 days.

  • In the next 4-6 weeks, as your skin heals, your scars will go from a bright red to a dark red and a brown color and eventually back to your natural skin color. This is a part of the healing process, do not worry and trust the process.

  • During healing, you will experience dryness, scabbing, and flakiness. Please do not pick or scratch as you may compromise the healing skin.

  • The healing process is different for everyone, typically 4-8 weeks; however, some skin tones prone to hyperpigmentation can take up to 3 months to fully heal.

  • During the healing, if you experience a pain increase or develop a fever, please notify us immediately and see your primary care to ensure it is not an infection or allergic reaction.

  • As long as the treated area is still darker than the skin, it is not yet fully healed.

  • Achieving the best possible outcome may require 2 to 4 sessions, depending on your skin

 

Always Wash hands before touching the treated area

Day 1(same day as treatment):

  • No showering after the treatment 

  • Apply an ample amount of healing oil. Don’t apply the regeneration cream until the next day

  • Do NOT sleep on the treated area(s) until the swelling goes down, it will subside over the next days

Following the proper post-care is necessary to achieve the best results. When scheduling an appointment for a paramedical tattoo treatment please keep in mind the healing time of the treatment will depend on your body’s regeneration, age, immune system, and lifestyle.
