Appointment Preparation & Aftercare:

Appointment Preparation

The day of your appointment:

  • No contacts: You must wear eyeglasses the day of your appointment and for 3 days after.
  • No makeup: You must come in with clean face. This includes eyelash curlers and false eyelashes or eyelash extensions.
  • No sty: If you have a sty you will need to wait until it is fully healed.
  • No sunburn on your face.

Appointment Preparation

  • If you are prone to cold sores you should consult with your doctor about having your lips done, as you will need to go on an anti-viral medication for 2 days prior, the day of your service, and for 2 days after. If you do not go on an anti-viral medication, you could have an outbreak of cold sores from the stress to the nerve endings. 
  • If you have freckles on your lips, having them tattooed will not necessarily cover up the freckles. They may still be seen through the color. 
  • If you are on blood thinners you are not a good candidate for lips. If you take an aspirin over the counter it is recommended to go off of it for 2-3 days, but you should consult with your doctor first.
  • If you have severely dry lips, you need to start hydrating them and exfoliating them 2-3 weeks prior to your appointment. If your lips are dehydrated they will not retain the color well. 
  • Lip blushing is meant to restore the shape and color of the lips, it is not to make them look bigger. Note: Burn survivors or those with cleft lip are an exception to this.

Aftercare

Appointment Preparation

  • You must be 18 years old to have 3D Areola Restoration performed.
  • You must wait a minimum of 3 months after your nipple reconstruction before having it tattooed.
  • If you went through radiation treatment, you will need to contact your doctor to get an antibiotic because radiated skin typically doesn’t heal as well, but it can usually still be done.
  • It is mandatory for you to have a free consultation before coming in for your restoration service. This allows me to learn more about you and work with you on a plan to give you the result you are looking for. We also discuss realistic expectations and go over after-care.
  • 3D Areola Restoration is typically okay regardless of the type of reconstruction or grafting options. This will all be discussed in your consultation.

Emergency LI-FT Removal

3D Brows & Wellness is able to do emergency pigment removal with a very high success rate if you are able to come in within the first 72 hours after having the tattoo done.

You must call the studio for this service and indicate you are looking for emergency removal in order to prioritize getting in outside of normal business hours or scheduled artist hours.

Things to know about Skin Needling

  • You must be 18 years old to have Skin Needling
  • Unlike chemical peels, Skin Needling can be done on anybody – with any skin type
  • Skin Needling is an alternative to toxic injections or fillers
  • Skin Needling works on sun damaged skin and it is less invasive than chemical peels, dermabrasion or lasers as the epidermis is left in contact
  • Skin Needling has no sun sensitivity, color loss or hyper pigmentation; therefore, unlike lasers, skin needling can be performed on dark skin tones.
  • Skin Needling is not a “one and done” treatment. Typically, people choose it because they want to fix or correct something; therefore, multiple treatments may be needed for optimal results
  • Results will vary for everyone due to everyone’s body and healing process being different. It also depends on how fast your own natural collagen, elastins and proteins regenerate

Commonly Asked Questions

I’m not sure if this is for me, can I learn more before I book?

Absolutely! Complimentary Consultations are available to anyone who wants more information on any service and can be scheduled with any artist by contacting the studio at 920.770.3DBW (3329).

Service Specific Questions:

Is it going to hurt?

A topical numbing cream is applied prior to starting and a secondary numbing is applied during the permanent makeup service. Most people find very little discomfort, if any.

Will my eyebrows be too dark?

You have full say in the color chosen; therefore, if you want to start off a bit lighter you can, as we can always go darker at your perfecting session. While your eyebrows will get dark for a few days as part of the healing process, they will fade about 20-30% once they heal. 

How often do I need to get them touched up?

We recommend an annual color boost to keep the color fresh, but how often you have a touch up is, for the most part, entirely up to you. We have clients who stretch it out to doing a color boost every 18-24 months, while others prefer to come in annually. Your skin type, lifestyle and the products you use on your face all come into play when determining how often you need or want a touch up. It’s important to note that eyebrows will fade faster than body tattoos due to the fact that your face is exposed to sun and other elements that can cause faster fading. Also, women tend to use more products on their face that have lightening agents in them; therefore, causing the eyebrows to fade.

Is it going to hurt?

Brutal honesty… eyeliner can hurt. It’s a sensitive area in general and even though a topical numbing cream is applied, clients still indicate the eyeliner is the most sensitive area when comparing it to other PMU services. That said, our clients have all gotten through it, so you can too!

Should I come to my appointment with my eyeliner on so you know what I like?

No. You should be wearing absolutely no eye makeup when you show up for your appointment. Your artist will be happy to discuss thickness options prior to starting, but you should not have any makeup on your eyes whatsoever. 

My eyes are sensitive. Am I a good candidate?

Everyone’s sensitivities are different; therefore, we recommend a free consultation before scheduling. We have found that those with sensitive eyes tend to do better at the appointment if they simply know exactly what to expect by having a consultation to go over everything prior.

Is it going to hurt?

A topical numbing cream is applied prior to starting and a secondary numbing is applied during the permanent makeup service. Most people find very little discomfort, if any.

How will my lips look after?

It is common for the lips to appear swollen immediately after, possibly bruised as well, but it subsides within a couple of days. Most clients prefer the swelling for fuller looking lips!

Will lip blushing make my lips look fuller?

The purpose of lip blushing is to restore the shape and color of the lips, not change the fullness of them. By restoring the shape it can make the lips appear to be fuller, although that is not the true intention of the service.

Is it going to hurt?

A topical numbing cream is applied prior to starting and a secondary numbing is applied during the service. Most people find very little discomfort, if any.

How do you match a new areola to an existing one?

If you’ve had a unilateral mastectomy, a custom color is mixed to get as close to the existing areola color as possible. You will be shown the color and a sample of it is placed on your skin for your approval before moving forward. 

What if I have scar tissue on my breasts from my mastectomy?

Fortunately, we can do skin needling to correct the scar and get the skin tissue healthy. Getting the skin tissue healthy allows for better color retention for the tattoo. 

Is it going to hurt?

Yes. It is important for you to understand that tattoo removal has a lot of discomfort. There is no “easy” way to get pigment out of the skin; therefore, you need to be prepared. Your artist will explain everything to you step by step so there are no surprises, and we also keep communication open during the service to gauge your comfort level, as everyone is different. 

Will my tattoo be completely gone?

There are a plethora of variables which determine how well your tattoo will lighten up (how old it is, the ink used, the sun exposure to it, how many times it has been touched up, etc…). Tattoos can be lightened just enough for them to be reworked or made into something else (body tattoos), or enough for fresh PMU to create a new look (eyebrows, eyeliner, lips). 

Is it going to hurt?

Some clients have indicated slight discomfort if doing skin needling on the face. While it is not considered a painful service, some discomfort can be experienced depending on the individual as well as the area of the body being treated.

What areas of the body can I have skin needling?

Skin needling can be done anywhere! It has been done on the face, stomach, arms, breast area, etc… Due to skin needling being a very natural, organic way of repairing the skin, there are no limitations to where it can be done.

What will I look like immediately after?

The skin may appear a bit red immediately after, but it subsides fairly quickly. It is not uncommon for clients to leave with some “chicken scratches” on the areas treated, and they typically last a couple of days at most. If you end up with redness or scratches, you are able to use makeup to camouflage the area.

Important!

It is against WI state law for anyone under the age of 18 to receive a tattoo.

Parental consent does not override this state law; therefore, no one under the age of 18 will receive permanent makeup.

Children under the age of 18 are also not allowed in the procedure room to observe.
