Before your procedure, there are some recommendations that will help insure a successful application of your permanent makeup.

You will need to avoid ibuprofen, aspirin, vitamin E, or other blood thinners, unless advised by a physician for 2 days prior to the procedure.  You can take Tylenol.

Do not wear contact lenses, if having an eyeliner procedure.

If having a lip procedure, it is advised to take Lysine 2x’s a day for 7 days prior.  If you have had fever blisters, obtain a prescription for Zovirax prior to your procedure.

Avoid sun exposure before and after your procedure for two weeks.

Do not consume alcohol prior, which can be a blood thinner.

 

After your permanent makeup procedure follow these instructions.

Make every effort to keep the area clean.  This means, do not apply any makeup to the area, until it is completely healed, which is typically two weeks.  If possible purchase new makeup if you want to apply this.

Keep eyebrows moist by dabbing a very small layer of vaseline onto the brows, until healed.  This will prevent them from scabbing and losing ink.  If a scab develops, do not pick at it.

Cool compresses can be applied off and on for the first 24 hours to control swelling, if necessary.

Use moistened cotton balls to gently wipe the area to clean off any excess ink.

If you had an eyeliner procedure, keep the lashes moist with artificial tears, until healed.

Avoid swimming and sun exposure.

Retin-A and facial peels can remove permanent makeup color within the first 24 hours, so avoid these products.

If needed, schedule a touch up procedure.  This is included free for the first 3 months.

Lastly, Enjoy your new makeup!
