Post Treatment Instructions for Corrections

  • We recommend that ice packs be applied for 10-15 minutes each hour for the first three hours following the procedure.
  • The ice is used to minimize swelling and provide comfort.
  • Do not take aspirin, as this promotes bleeding at the treatment sites.
  • Over the counter pain medication is recommended for temporary pain relief.
  • Apply RecoverAll to the treatment area 2-3 times per day for the following week, or whenever the area feels dry.
  • Keeping the area moisturized and soothed is important for color retention.
  • Stay out of the sun! If you must be out and about, wear a hat and lots of sunscreen.
  • Keep water off of your brows for at least 24 hours.
  • Do not use any face creams, exfoliants, or harsh cleansers on your brows during the healing process.
  • Normal activity can be resumed immediately.
  • We recommend that heavy exercise such as aerobic dancing, weight lifting, etc. be delayed for approximately two to three days following the procedure.
  • Your procedure will begin to oxidize immediately and during the next 3-4 days.
  • This causes pigment to become darker.
  • Do not be alarmed, this dark color will either flake off or fade back to the color that was first implanted (during the 1st five minutes of the procedure).
  • Do not pick any scabs or dry areas that may form during the healing process, this may cause you to lose color or damage your skin.
  • Instead, apply some of the RecoverAll your technician gave you after the procedure.
  • Other fading or loss of pigment may occur.
  • Some flaking off of the pigment is normal on some skin types; however there should be pigment under the skin where the original pigment has flaked off.
  • If there is no pigment present, a touch up will be required to achieve lasting color.
  • Judgment of your final results should be deferred until one month following the procedure.
  • Over the next two to three weeks, the pigment intensity will lighten by up to 50%.
  • Your SofTap technician will schedule a follow-up appointment to make sure any faded areas are touched up and everything's healing properly.
  • If you have had Lightning applied to your procedure, the treatment area may become tender and scab over.
  • DO NOT pick the scab, as this may cause your skin to scar.
  • Lightning areas will become very dark, scab, and then fall off, leaving no color, or a very lightened color behind.
  • Keep in mind that sometimes Lightning requires more than one treatment.
