After Care for Eyeliner

Healing takes about 7 – 10 days

  • The colour becomes much softer and fades 30 – 50% lighter
  • Swelling and redness is normal for the first few days.
  • Slight stinging sensation in the first few days is also normal.
  • The colour will fade approximately 30-50% when the scab peels off. This is completely normal. Do not feel discouraged if the fading is more than you expected.
  • To achieve the perfect eyeliner, we need to see how your skin accepts the initial application and a touch-up appointment is where we will perfect the shape and colour.
  • No eye make-up is allowed until the scabbing is completely peeled off.
  • Avoid cleansing products around the eyes
  • Water contact is allowed 5 hours after the procedure.


  • Swelling occurs up to 3 days especially in the morning.
  • Exercising the eyes can help reduce swelling and puffiness
  • To relieve the swelling, you can ice the area with soft gel ice packs


  • The eyeliner will start to form scabs and they might look dark and thick. As the skin heals, the scabs will fall off in random pieces throughout the eyeline and might look patchy
  • Flaking and crusting on eyes may occur
  • Avoid pulling off the scabs that are dried out on the lashes
  • When you try to pull off the scabs that are hanging on your lashes, ensure the scabs are soft enough to slide off from the lashes.
A follow-up touch-up is necessary and can be completed 6-8 weeks from the initial appointment.
