What are the best “aftercare” products to use on my skin post procedure?
There are many products used as aftercare for micropigmentation procedures, but one stands out the most. This product is Vaseline. Researchers have found that Vaseline heals wounds as well as Bacitracin, Polysporin and Neosporin and does not cause any allergic reactions. In my practice I recommend the use of a triple antibiotic ointment for the first 24 hours post procedure followed by the use of Vaseline for the remaining 6 days. For all lip procedures, I recommend a Balm with Lidocaine to minimize client’s discomfort during the healing process. Lidocaine is a topical anesthetic used during all micropigmentation procedures. Ultimately, it is up to the technician and the client to decide what product should be used to best suit individual’s aftercare regime.
