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.

Stop taking Latisse or other lash growing serums 1 week prior.

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 clean by avoiding touching them or applying makeup to the area.  The brows will be sterilized and an aftercare cream will be applied to the brows immediately after the procedure.  Apply a THIN layer of aftercare cream every 3-4 hours thereafter. This will prevent them from scabbing and losing ink.  If a scab develops, do not pick at it. Avoid exposure to sun and chlorine or salt water.   Avoid long hot showers or any excessive sweating.                                                                                                         Continue this routine for 7-10 days until the tattoo is completely healed.

 

If you had an eyeliner procedure, keep the lashes moist with aftercare product every 3-4 hours until healed.

Avoid swimming and sun exposure.

Do not use Latisse or lash growing serums for 4 weeks after eyeliner, to prevent excessive fading and migration.

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!
