Please note that you will be more sensitive during your
menstrual cycle or during hormonal change.

​​

IMMEDIATELY AFTER //​

  • It is possible to experience redness and swelling up to 48 hours after the procedure. 

  • The treated area will appear much darker and bold due to the oxidation process during the healing period. 

  • If the area is kept clean and dry then only a light pigment film (not thick scab) will appear after 4-7 days. 

  • As the area heals it will become dry and itchy.

  • As the pigment film starts to flake off DO NOT pick, scratch, itch or pull off any of the areas which are peeling.

  • Choosing to pick at flakes and peeling areas will pull out pigment, and result in spots left without any pigment or in some cases scarring. 

  • As the area continues to heal, a softer more natural result will be revealed underneath.

  • Please note that within the first 4 weeks the amount of pigment that you see can seem very faint. It may seem like the pigment has been lost; please be advised that as the skin regenerates the new skin can in some cases hide the hair strokes completely. You must allow the full healing time of 8 weeks to see the true color and result. 

AFTERCARE //​​
 

  • Wash your hands with an antibacterial soap before washing your eyebrows or applying the post care cream to avoid infection.

  • Day One and Two: Do absolutely nothing and avoid showering, if possible, on day one.

  • Day Three through Nine: At Night gently wash the treated area with warm water and a mild cleanser. Pat the area dry, do not wipe. For oily skin, apply a VERY THIN layer of healing cream with a cotton swab only ONCE a day as needed. For dry skin, apply a VERY THIN layer of healing cream with a cotton swab only TWICE a day as needed. Complete dry healing is best.

  • When showering, keep your face away from the shower head, do not let water stream directly onto your face.

Standard Aftercare Practices: A Beginner’s Guide To A New Piercing

NEILMED NEILCLEANSE PIERCING AFTERCARE SPRAYS ARE DRUG-FREE AND PRESERVATIVE-FREE, SO YOU CAN ENJOY THE CLEAN FEELING OF A NATURAL CLEANSER WITH THE CONVENIENCE OF A SPRAY. WITH THE FINE MIST APPLICATION, YOU CAN APPLY THE SALINE SOLUTION DIRECTLY TO THE PIERCING AND LET IT SOAK. ONCE DONE SOAKING, PAT THE AREA DRY WITH A CLEAN PAPER TOWEL OR LET THE SOLUTION SOAK INTO YOUR SKIN.

For piercings that are a little more difficult to clean, like nose or lip piercings that have exit points in high-bacteria areas, you might want to opt for the full stream option. The full stream allows you to fill a small cup with saline solution, creating a bath that you can soak your piercing in.

Beyond offering an easier option than homemade sea salt baths, NeilClenase can be used to clean small scrapes and cuts, so even if you don’t use the entire bottle after getting pierced, they’ll still find use.

 

KEEP THE PIERCED AREA DRY

Perhaps the most obvious reason for keeping your piercing dry is that bacteria love moist places. If your piercing is damp, harmful bacteria could gather and cause infection.

Other, less known, reasons for keeping the area dry is to avoid piercing bumps. Bumps around the new piercing site are fairly common, and there are many reasons why a bump might form. Many of these bumps come from infections caused by dampness. Beyond being unsightly, these bumps can lead to scarring and other permanent issues, so they’re best to be avoided.

AFTER YOU SHOWER, BE SURE TO FULLY DRY YOUR NEW PIERCING WITH A CLEAN PAPER TOWEL.

Don’t take baths while your piercing heals. When you shower, try to keep your piercing away from the water as much as possible, and make sure that your piercing is the first thing that you dry.

When you dry your piercing, be sure to use a clean napkin or paper towel. The fibers of a standard towel can catch your jewelry and rip it out, which is both painful and damaging. Additionally, paper towels are typically cleaner than cloth ones, since cloth towels harbor bacteria.

It’s a good idea to travel with clean paper towels as well as your saline spray so that you can take care of your piercing when faced with unexpected issues, such as getting caught in the rain.

 

TRY NOT TO TOUCH YOUR NEW JEWELRY

As you adjust to your new jewelry, you might be tempted to play with it. Although the draw is understandable, you must fight against it; spinning or moving your jewelry can cause trauma to the pierced area.

In the first days of healing, your piercing will likely excrete some clear fluids, leading to some crusting around the piercing site. You’ll be tempted to pick it off, but this can lead to scabbing or permanent scarring. To clean off the crusties, you can gently soak the area with NeilMed’s Aftercare Solution. Once soaked, gently dab the crust from your piercing.

Trauma to the skin can cause more than temporary discomfort. Bumps like keloid scars and hypertrophic scarring occur when the skin has experienced trauma. Although the likelihood of developing these complications often depends upon genetics, you always want to be careful; shrinking or removing these bumps can be difficult. Often, it requires expensive procedures and even surgery. Save yourself the struggle and leave your jewelry alone.

 

CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOUR JEWELRY

In the first days of your piercing, you’ll experience some swelling. You need to make sure that your jewelry accommodates this.

Your piercer should help fit you with the right jewelry. However, it’s your responsibility to keep an eye on your jewelry during healing and make sure that the jewelry doesn’t press against the piercing. If it does, visit your piercer to get fit with a larger piece. Jewelry that presses against a piercing, whether it’s healed or not, risks becoming embedded in the skin.

Conversely, you want to make sure that your jewelry isn’t too large. Long barbells in new lip piercings run the risk of being chomped upon, which can break your teeth. In other piercings, larger jewelry might fall out and can be more easily snagged. After your swelling has gone down, talk to your piercer about changing your jewelry to a smaller piece.

During healing, you always want to visit your piercer for any jewelry change. They know how to navigate the healing piercing without causing trauma to the skin. Even once you’ve completed the healing process, you should talk to your piercer before changing your jewelry. The inside of the piercing will take longer to heal than the outside, and your piercer will be able to investigate and let you know if your piercing is ready.

 

KNOW HOW TO TELL AN INFECTION FROM NATURAL HEALING

Especially in the first days of healing, your piercing will experience swelling, throbbing, and some secretion of bodily fluids. While all of these symptoms are natural parts of the healing process, they can also be signs of more serious issues, so it’s important to understand when it’s natural healing and when you need to see a medical professional.

Please note: This is not to be construed as medical advice. If you ever have any doubt or concern, see a medical professional immediately.

 

BODILY FLUIDS

For the most part, clear or slightly white excretion is normal in the first days of healing. This is what will likely form any crust around the piercing site.

If the excretion is fully white or green, like pus, it could be a sign of an infection. Play it safe and talk to a professional.

SWELLING

Swelling will happen in the first few days after your piercing, especially in meatier areas like your lips or eyebrows. The swelling may feel a bit of a throb. These are all normal parts of the initial healing process.

If you experience excess swelling, the swelled area feels feverish, or if the swelling doesn’t go away after a couple of days, it could be a sign that your piercing is infected. Take a trip to urgent care to get it checked out.

 

BLEEDING

You might experience some light bleeding the first day or two after your piercing. After all, you did just get a hole poked through your body. However, this bleeding should be able to be staved by a small tissue.

Excessive bleeding or bleeding that occurs later in the healing process is symptomatic of other issues. If you have any doubt in your mind that the bleeding might be unusual, consult a doctor or your piercer.

In the end, a lot of the infection symptoms come down to common sense. If you’ve ever had a fairly nasty scrape, the symptoms will be similar. Keep an eye on your piercing, and at the first sign of potential infection, play it safe, and see a professional.

 

ADHERE TO CERTAIN LIFESTYLE CHANGES

As your piercing heals, there will be certain things that you will need to refrain from completely. Piercing aftercare goes beyond keeping the piercing site clean. Essentially, your body is healing from a wound, and you need to take care of yourself as your body takes care of the issue. Here are some don’t-do activities while you’re healing.

 

DON’T GO SWIMMING

As mentioned previously, you need to keep your piercing dry. Whether you want to swim in a private pool or a natural lake, standing pools of water will have tons of bacteria that you don’t want anywhere near your piercing. Until your healing is complete and confirmed by your piercer, stay away from water except to shower.

 

 

 

DON’T PARTY

Excessive drinking lowers your body’s ability to fight off infection, which is the last thing you want when it’s trying to heal itself. One glass of wine or cocktail is fine, but you must refrain from heavy drinking while you heal. You should also stay away from smoking since cigarettes hold harmful chemicals that can adversely affect your new piercing. Although this should go without saying (and we don’t condone this even outside of piercing aftercare), stay away from recreational drug use, as well.

 

DON’T STAY UP ALL NIGHT

Whether you’re recuperating from a new piercing or a nasty cold, rest is essential. Make sure that you get enough sleep every night to give your body the energy it needs to heal your piercing. In addition to staying well-rested, you should maintain good diet practices. Any tool that you can give your body as it heals is a plus.

 

DON’T TOUCH YOUR PIERCING WITH ANYTHING OTHER THAN AFTERCARE MATERIALS

This might seem like a fairly obvious tip when trying to avoid infection, but it can be harder than you think. It’s difficult to realize how many foreign objects might touch your new piercing site until you’re trying to keep it clean.

KEEP YOUR PIERCING AWAY FROM FOREIGN OBJECTS, INCLUDING CLOTHING AND FACIAL PRODUCTS.

Keep makeup, lotion, sunscreen products away from your piercing. The new piercing can easily become clogged, leading to infection.

You also need to be careful about the clothing you wear around your piercing. Keep scarves, hats, and other clothing items away from your piercing. If you must have clothing touch the piercing, make sure that the clothing is clean and that you clean the pierced site afterward. For facial piercings, you should cover your pillow with a clean t-shirt each night to minimize exposure to bacteria. Additionally, you should try not to sleep on the piercing, since prolonged pressure can cause the jewelry to become embedded in the skin.

Piercing aftercare can be a bit of a process, but when your aftercare practice has ended and you’re left with a gorgeous new piercing, it will be worth it. Always err on the side of caution, make the necessary lifestyle changes through the entire healing process, and talk to a piercer or doctor if you have any concerns. If you adhere to proper practices, you should experience a positive healing period.

LASH ENHANCEMENT PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS

It is critical to follow all preparation and aftercare instructions for your initial appointment as well as your perfecting appointment, in order to achieve optimal results. Please read carefully.

 

4 Weeks Before:

No eyelash serums

No Vitamin A/Retinol products

No Fish Oil or Vitamin E

 

48 Hours Before:

No alcohol, caffeine, Aspirin, or Ibuprofen

No eyelash extensions; if you have them, they must be removed at least 3 days prior to your appointment

 

Day of Appointment:

Do not wear any eye makeup to your appointment; especially mascara.

Do not wear contacts to your appointment.

 

HEALING PROCESS

Immediately following your appointment, your eyeliner may look harsh and painted on. This will soften up and look a lot more natural as it heals…please be patient! The outer layer of color will appear crusty and start to flake off. Do not pick, scratch, or rub the treated area or attempt to remove the crusty material. As your lash enhancement heals, you may notice that the color appears lighter and/or softer.

 

AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS

Day 1 of Treatment:

·      After your appointment, do not touch your eyes. Before bed you can ice your eyes by placing it on top of a fresh paper towel or tissue. Do not put ice directly on skin.

·      Do not wash eyes and try to keep them dry.

·      If your eyes are swollen, you may take Tylenol.

·      Remember, dry healing is best; however, if you are extremely itchy and uncomfortable you may apply a rice grain amount of Aquaphor with a Q-tip. Be sure not to over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

·      Gently rinse your eyes each morning and night with water and a gentle soap (ex. Dial, baby shampoo, Cetaphil). With a very light touch, use your clean fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 5-10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue or let air dry. Do not use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants. Do not use soap, cleanser, or shampoo on the treated area for 7-10 days. All cleansing should be done with a clean Q-tip dipped in cool water and gently dabbed on the treated area. Do not rub the treated area.

·      Stay out of direct sunlight and tanning booths. You can go outside of course! Avoid laying out at the pool or a beach until your brows are healed. If you are going to the beach or pool wear a hat that shields your eyes from the sun until you're healed, like a visor or baseball cap.

·      Aside from your daily gentle washes as noted above, do not soak your eyes in water until healed (ex. bath tub, sauna, pool, or hot tub). When washing your face, wash around the eye area. Showers are fine but limit them to five minutes to prevent too much steam around the eye area.

·      Avoid facials, chemical treatments, and Botox until your eyes are healed.

·      Do not allow makeup, lotions, or other products to touch the treated area. No eye makeup until healed!

 

Day 2-10 of Treatment:

·      You can resume wearing eye makeup after day 7. New mascara is recommended to prevent old bacteria being introduced to procedure area.

·      You can resume using lash serum or getting new eyelash extensions 4 weeks after your touchup appointment. Do not use in between appointments.

 

Long-term Aftercare Instructions

·      You can resume wearing eye makeup after day 7. New mascara is recommended to prevent old bacteria being introduced to procedure area.

·      You can resume using lash serum or getting new eyelash extensions 4 weeks after your touchup appointment. (Not to use in between appointments.)

·      Inform your technician of your permanent eyeliner at the time of any laser procedures or MRIs.
