HOW TO PREPARE FOR MY PERMANENT MAKEUP APPOINTMENT

It all starts with a good canvas! The potential treatment area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated.  

 

Here’s how to get your skin ready for your brow procedure:

  • Do not thread/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before the procedure

  • Do not drink alcohol 48 hours prior to your appointment

  • Do not drink coffee 24 hours prior to your appointment

  • Do not tan two weeks prior to the service, or have a sunburned face

  • Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to the procedure

  • Do not work out the day of the procedure

  • Wash your hair the morning of your appointment, healing tattoos cannot get wet for the first 72 hours, so you will need to avoid washing your hair too soon

  • Do not have botox or filler 3 weeks prior to the procedure. Please inform us of any current injections.

  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners)

  • Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days prior to the procedure.

 

Here’s how to get ready for your lip blushing procedure:

  • Lips must not be dry for the procedure! Keep them fully moisturized with a lip ointment like Aquaphor or Vaseline starting from a week prior to the procedure.

  • Exfoliate the lips 1-2 days before the procedure using a soft toothbrush or DIY sugar/honey scrub

  • Cold sore sufferers - see important note below

    • If you have a history of cold sores: 

      • Ideally, you are advised to see your doctor for anti-viral medication which you should start 2-3 days prior to the procedure

      • If available, topical Zovirax can be applied preventatively during the first week of healing 

      • Otherwise, it is recommended to take L-lysine 1-2 weeks before and after the appointment to reduce the risk 

      • However, cold sores are a risk of lip blush treatment regardless of whether you have had them in the past. It is therefore recommended for ALL clients to take L-lysine, and if you experience an unusual tingly sensation in the lips or notice any bumps appear - see your doctor immediately as you may be experiencing an episode of cold sores. Prompt treatment is crucial in minimizing the extent of a cold sore outbreak.

  • No alcohol or caffeinated products 24 hours before treatment, and no aspirin or blood-thinning medications five days prior.

  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners).

  • Absolutely no injections of Novocaine, Botox or fillers should be administered to you ten days before treatment. Please inform us of any current injections.

  • If you use or have used Retin-A or any other medications, please advise the technician.

  • Wash your hair that morning - because you can't get your healing tattoo wet you will need to avoid washing your hair too soon.
