   Pre/AfterCare

 

Please note that every client's skin will respond differently. Both in the length of time it takes to heal, and in the number of sessions it takes for your desired results and color retention. This information acts as a guideline only and we cannot guarantee results on anyone. Your results and longevity of your tattoo depends greatly on your aftercare during the healing process and beyond. 

How to get ready for the procedure?

- Do not pick/tweeze/wax one week before procedure

- Do not tan two weeks prior or have sunburned face
- Do not have any type of facial/peel 2 weeks prior to treatment
- Discontinue Vitamin A/Retinol products one month prior.
- Do not work out the day of the procedure.
- Do not have botox 3 weeks prior 
- Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E two weeks prior (natural blood thinners)
- Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days before the procedure.

 

 

In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:
- Do not drink alcohol 24 - 48 hours before your tattoo
- Do not take an aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (this thins the blood)

 

 

  • Why do I need a touch up?

Skin can be an unpredictable canvas, and retention can vary from person to person. Touch ups are necessary to visibly assess how your color looks healed , and gauge how the look is meeting your personal expectations. You may need several touchups, jealousy cannot guarantee 

Any results especially lips if you have fillers in the lips as the pigment is absorbed into it and can give a patchy appeara

  • How long does it last? 

The pigment can last for up to 1 - 3 years. Lighter colors will fade faster than the darker colors. It's all depending on your lifestyle and skin type -  each body is so unique! To maintain your permanent makeup, touch ups are recommended every 10 months to 2 years.

 

 

  • Does it hurt? 

We use strong topical anesthetic used to numb before and during procedure for your comfort. However sensitivity differs from person to person. Please do not take any blood thinners such as Ibuprofen and Aspirin 24 hours before your procedure.

Do you shave off my eyebrows? 

NO! Although we sometimes clean up around the brow, and change the shape if needed, we keep the brow hair where they are for the most natural outcome. 

 

 

  • Do I book for just a touch-up if I've had permanent makeup done somewhere else?

No! If you're a new client to our studio, you have to book as a new brow appointment. If you have previous work that needs to be covered, you have to email us a clear photo to make sure we are comfortable enough to take on the job. Please contact us for more information if you're looking for us to work over previous tattoo. 

 

  • Can I get tattooed while pregnant? 

No! We will not tattoo anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding. 

 

  • Can I bring my kids to my appointment? 

No! Because we are a tattoo parlor, you have to be above the age of 18 to be in the studio. We like to keep any distractions to a minimum so we can only focus on you during your appointment time. Plus, this is your mommy time! 

  • Can I Bring a Friend or Family member to my appointment?

Yes, but not into the treatment area. CDC and OSHA guidelines will not allow any observers in the procedure area during the procedure process. If you need help communicating, please bring someone with you to assist in this communication. This person will need to be present for the entire procedure. If you don’t bring someone with you and WE find it difficult to communicate, we will have to reschedule and you will forfeit your deposit. A new deposit will be required up front, before we will re-schedule you.

  • Can I Donate Blood in NJ After Getting my Brows Microbladed or Microshaded (Cosmetically Tattooed)?

Yes. All New Jersey Tattoo Parlors are Licensed and Inspected. We at Jealousy Go through 2 yearly certification classes. One for Bloodborne Pathogens and Barbacide Covid 19 Certification. Jessa our Founder also Holds her CPR/AED and Standard First Aid Certifications. FDA guidelines allow volunteer blood donations from potential donors with a tattoo one year after application, IF the state where the tattoo was applied does not inspect and license these facilities. If the state does inspect and license tattoo parlors, the donor is eligible as soon as the tattoo site heals, usually within 1-2 weeks. Each blood collection facility is allowed to implement guidelines more strict than the FDA, so please contact your local facility for specific eligibility guidelines.

Fibroblast 

How Does Fibroblast Treatment Work?


Fibroblast is a new innovation in the beauty industry in North America but has been around for a number of years in Europe. The hand-held device we use for this treatment works by utilizing the voltage in the air between its tip and the natural gasses emitted from our skin, to form a plasma charge. An electrical arc is created and instantly shrinks the targeted area on the skin.  The tissues tighten give you a more youthful look to your skin.

 

How Long Does It Last?

With Fibroblast the effects should last as long as they would with conventional surgery.  Like all surgical and cosmetic procedures, the effects of fibroblast are not entirely permanent because it does not stop any further ageing, but the results should last years, depending on the treatment area. The positive effects of treatment will be noticeable immediately after the first treatment, but the final results will be seen after 8 weeks. For some, an additional treatment may be required after 8 weeks for maximum results.  Additionally, there are lifestyle factors that can prevent the result from lasting as long as they can, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and prolonged sun exposure.

 

Day of Treatment:

On the treatment day, we recommend no make-up is worn on the area being treated. You may take an anti-histamine 30 minutes prior to your appointment to help with swelling and continue to take anti-histamines for 2-3 days following your appointment.

A numbing agent is applied and left to take effect for up to 30 minutes. When the treatment area is sufficiently numb, the session begins with multiple connections of the fibroblast tip.Treatment time is usually between 10-40 minutes, depending on the size of the area. Immediately after treatment the area may be red and slightly swollen with small carbon crusts (spots).  You may experience a sensation close to a sun burn which will likely last a few hours.  Swelling may intensify over the following few hours and more so when eyes are treated and may last 2-3 days. The carbon crusts will fall within 5 -12 days depending on the individual and area treated. Results gradually improve over the course of the following 8 weeks. LED Treatment may be recommended directly after your treatment to minimize swelling & redness and promote healing. You will be given thorough aftercare instructions to ensure that you see the best results. In the week following the treatment (or until the treatment area has fully healed) an exfoliating wash or cleanser should not be used. Instead opt for a pH balanced soap (dove), and avoid rubbing the area.

 

 Pre-Treatment:

- It is recommended that sun protection of SPF 30-50 be used daily for at least 2 weeks prior to the Plasma Lift treatment(s).

- Skincare products with ingredients such as retinols, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), tretinoin or any type of Vitamin A derivatives should be avoided.

- Stay out of sun, tanning salons and refrain from using any self-tanning products for 3 weeks.

- Your primary care physician can prescribe medicine even if you have a history of cold sores or if you have other contra-indications which may put you at risk of developing side effects following treatment.

- Initially after treatment and up to 3 days later, there may be occasional weeping. This is the natural healing response to the plasma lift procedure.

- As the treated area begins to heal, you will notice the drying out process whereby a brown/black crust develops on the surface of the skin. This will flake off after a few days but in some cases can take up to 10 days.

- DO NOT PICK the crusting as it can lead to infection or scarring. It is important to keep this area clean.

- It is strongly advised that you use an SPF 30-50 sunscreen (throughout the year including the colder months) to avoid sunburn as the area’s sensitivity to sunlight will be heightened for up to 3-4 months post Plasma Lift procedure.

- Boiled lukewarm water is best for cleaning the treated area(s).

- DO NOT use alcohol-based cleansers as this will slow down the healing process.

- It is important that these crusts are not removed (never scratch, otherwise a scar will remain). Instead, twice daily in the morning and in the evening, carefully clean the areas, then disinfect it with distilled water spray and gently dab with a clean, lint-free cloth. Then apply provided ointment twice daily.

- After the independent peeling of the scab crusts (typically the 5t-8 days), pink/red skin forms.

- Sunscreen lotion of SPF50 is recommended 6 months post Plasma Lift treatment.

- Swimming and sauna activities are only permitted 2 weeks post treatment and once all the crusts have fallen off the skin surface and the wound is completely healed and closed.

Smokers may experience a significant worsening of the blood flow, which increases the risk of wound healing and/or slowed healing.

Note that after the crusts are lost, a slight redness may remain in the following weeks to months. It usually takes 4-6 weeks (sometimes longer) until the skin has reached its normal color again.

Follow up treatment will not be before 8 weeks from the first treatment date.
