PicoWay Tattoo After Care

Postoperative treatment care

  1. Immediately after treatment, there should be a “slight frosting” on the area that is treated. Erythema (redness) and edema (swelling) at the treatment site can occur and may last up to 2 hours or longer. Pinpoint bleeding may also occur. 
  2. An ointment (Aquaphor, bacitracin, or even Vaseline) should be applied to the treated area and covered with a non-stick bandage (Telfa). 
  3. After the treatment, the skin can scab over. It is very important not to pick, scratch or aggressively wash the area to prevent possible scarring. This crust should flake off in 7-10 days. 
  4. Avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyper-pigmentation (darker pigmentation) 
  5. Use sun block (SPF 30+) at all times throughout the course of your treatments. 
  6. There are no restrictions on bathing except to treat the area gently, as with any other wound.


Most frequent questions and answers

Not as much as you think, we perform all treatment on the epidermis so the pigment placement is superficial allowing the skin to heal without creating deep scar tissue. We also use topical anesthetic products to numb all areas to give you the maximum comfort.

It depends on a few factors, skin type and life style in general, but it usually will last 1-3 years with colour slightly fading over time.  After your initial treatment, you need to come back to the Studio for either a touch up, and/or semi-annual or annual colour boosts to refresh the colour.

We prefer to evaluate each case individually during a complementary consultation. We also accept pictures of your existing brows, lips or eye without makeup to determine the best treatment for you.

For the first two weeks following a cosmetic tattoo the area will feel a bit tight, some skin will flake off and the pigment colour will go through stages of fading. It is normal that the pigment colour appears slightly darker the first few days followed by fading that happens after the scabbing / flaking of the dead skin happens. Remember your skin is going through a renewal phase and that may result in colour visibly fading and then coming back after a full healing cycle of about 5 weeks. During a touch up visit we will correct all the pigment loss as well as adjust the final shape and colour. 

The first touch-up is included in your initial appointment and should be booked within 6-8 weeks of your initial appointment. To ensure your semi-permanent makeup looking fresh and last longer you can book a color boost every 1-2 years after the initial touch-up, or in some cases in as little as 6 months for a semi-annual colour boost.

All appointment reservations require a $50+txs booking fee (except for consultations). This fee is refundable if a cancellation is made 48h prior to the appointment. The booking fee is deducted from the cost of the treatment. 


A cancellation that is made in less than 48h prior to the appointment, entails a cancellation fee. A cancellation fee of $30+txs is applicable for all touch ups session, and a $50+txs fee is applicable for all first treatments. To avoid this charge, and in case of a change, I must inform the studio at least 48 hours before the appointment.
