PLASMA PEN BY LOUISE WALSH INTERNATIONAL
Wait until the scabs fall off! You can resume your regular activities immediately after each session but you may not look your complete best during the healing process (which is 3-7 days in normal circumstances).
The treated area MUST NOT be covered with any type of make-up, mascara, creams or other product until the area has fully healed (outside of what we recommend below). Wash gently with soap twice a day. Any other treatment or make-up could result in unnecessary infections and undesired effects.
Swelling for one to five days after the cosmetic treatment is normal and to be expected. The Plasma Pen by Louise Walsh International delivers shorter downtime, faster recovery and far superior results.
Keep the scab moist by applying aloe vera up to three times per day. If a scab and surrounding area is kept moist then not only will you experience relief from itching but it will expedite a scar free healing process. Leaving a scab to continuously dry out can mean the healing process actually takes longer and the longer the healing process the great the chance for scarring.
Taking vitamin C during the course of the healing process also helps give your immune system a boost. That in turn helps to repair and it also helps prevent hyper-pigmentation.Aftercare Basis

Failure to follow post-procedure instructions may result in loss or discoloration of pigment
The known possible complications from micropigmentation;
- Dry patches
- It is normal to lose approximately 1/3 of the colour during the healing process.
- After initial procedure, the colour may be a shade too dark; in six days it will appear too light. After ten days, the colour will show more.
- It will appear softer when completely healed because the colour will come from the dermal layer of the skin to the epidermal layer of the skin.
Eyebrow Micropigmentation – Healing Schedule
|Day 1 – 2||The eyebrows are approximately 20 -25% darker and bolder in width than they will be when healed. Your skin is red under the pigment which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see do to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow procedure to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result. New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a shorter appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.|
|Day3||Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.|
|Day 4||The skin begins to flake — peeling from the outside edges first.|
|Day 5||Colour finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until colour clarifies|
NOTE: Permanent makeup procedures are affected by the canvas (your skin) that they are performed on. If your skin is sun damaged (even from tanning beds) thick and uneven in texture, or excessively dry or oily the result cannot be expected to be perfect after the initial procedure. Lifestyle, medication, smoking, metabolism, facial surgery and age of skin all contribute to fading. Touch-ups are needed 6 weeks after your initial procedure to ensure the best results and to keep your permanent cosmetics looking the best. Your procedure maintenance, as outlined in your pre/post procedure directions, is very important.
Eyelash extentions need minimal care. Avoid excessive rubbing, waterproof mascaras, oil based cleaners, oil based lotions or make-up removers, as these will loosen the adhesive and shorten the life of your extensions. Use a micro-brush to fully clean the eyeliner around the eye. We recommend using the Lash Bath oil free cleaner, Nutraluxe growth serum and Lash Nourishing Sealer. These products will clean, protect and extend the life of your extensions while also nourishing your natural lashes.
