Freckle tattooing aftercare advice
Your freckle tattoos will fade over time and require occasional top ups to keep them at their best. Kseniia always recommends that freckle tattoo clients attend an initial top up treatment after 4-6 weeks, to ensure they are at their best and to maximise their longevity.
Do note that freckle tattoos will remain for longer on the nose area, as a result of their being less fat in this area.
Freckles will fade faster if you regularly use chemical exfoliators such as AHAs or BHAs or glycolic acid, as these are designed to remove upper layers of the skin and to increase cellular turnover.
As with any semi-permanent makeup, Kseniia gives all her clients thorough aftercare advice following their treatment and a complimentary post-treatment aftercare kit to take home.
Once you have had your freckle tattooing treatment, there are some golden rules to follow, to ensure you get the best possible results. The good news is that aftercare for freckles tattoos is considerably less intensive than it is for other types of semi-permanent makeup.
⠀⠀⠀Keep the area as dry as possible after your post-treatment – avoid cleaning the area with anything other than the gentlest cleanser after treatment and if you do have a shower, keep it quick and ensure your new freckles are kept dry.
⠀Avoid makeup for a week after treatment that is over or near your new freckles. Lipstick is okay, blush, bronzer and foundation are a no. Take extra care if you use any eye makeup, as this can slide during wear.
⠀Avoid sweating for the first few days after treatment – so, again, if you are going to shower, be quick and use cooler water than usual and keep the bathroom well ventilated. Avoid saunas or swimming, and any activity that may cause you to perspire.
⠀Your new freckles will darken after treatment (and don't forget, you aren't going to be able to use makeup to cover this up). This is entirely normal and does not reflect the final outcome. They may also look larger than you anticipated, as a result of some residual swelling in the area. The final look will shrink down and look completely natural, once healed.
⠀⠀ ⠀ After a few days, you may notice the pigment beginning to scab and peel. It is extremely important to not pick at the scabs and to let them heal and fall of their own accord. In your aftercare kit, you will find products to keep your freckles looking at their best and to safely remove any flaking.
⠀⠀ ⠀After around a week, you may notice your new freckles start to fade. You may wonder if it was worth it! Don't worry – this is just a part of the natural healing process. It takes around four weeks before the skin is fully healed and your beautiful new semi-permanent makeup will be at its' best.
⠀⠀ ⠀Avoid scratching your new freckles. They may get itchy, but just gently pat the area with a damp cotton pad instead.
