Pre-procedure Advice

Please read the following advice carefully and complete form at the bottom of this page.

PERMANENT MAKEUP is not meant for a perfectionist. While I can do everything I can to make your procedure look perfect, they will NEVER be “Perfect”. If this is you, permanent makeup is not for you.

••Please come to appointment make up free.

••Permanent make up procedures normally requires multiple treatment sessions. For best results, it is required for clients to return for at least one re-touch appointment. This will take place 6-8 weeks after the initial procedure. Those with super oily skin may require additional touch up sessions (additional sessions will incur additional charge).

••Please be aware that color intensity will be significantly darker and sharper immediately after and a few days after the initial procedure, but the color will reduce by 30-40%.

••Although numbing cream is used during the procedure, sensitivity or discomfort may still be felt. Skin may be red and/or swollen after the procedure.

••Please do not drink alcohol 24 hours prior to the treatment.

••Unless medically necessary, please avoid taking things that thin the blood like fish oils, herbals, Vitamin E, aspirins.

••Consult your physician if you are taking any prescription blood thinners prior to discontinuing use. If applicable, please get a written and signed letter from the physician stating you may discontinue use of blood thinners 48 hours prior to procedure. Bring this letter with you to your appointment.

••When possible, try to avoid the following herbs and spices prior to your appointment: Black pepper, Cardamom, any member of the Zingiberaceae (Ginger) family, Cayenne, Cinnamon, Garlic, Horseradish, Mustard.

••A patch test can be performed, unless waived by client. It is the client’s responsibility to schedule this at least 1 week prior to the procedure.

••Botox, AHA products and retinoids should be avoided for 2 weeks prior to the procedure and two weeks post procedure

••Exfoliating treatments such as microdermabrasion should not be performed within 2 weeks prior to procedure and 2 weeks post procedure.

••Chemical and laser peels should be avoided no less than 6 weeks prior to procedure

••Hormone therapies can affect pigmentation and/or cause sensitivity

••You are STRONGLY discouraged from bringing children with you to your appointment.  Please know that I love children but the time reserved is for you and should be all about you.  I schedule time according to the procedures being performed and most likely will have other clients coming in after you.  It is very important to have as few distractions as possible during your scheduled time to give you the best service you deserve.   

••(Brow Clients) Please do not shape or wax your brows before your brow procedure. Your technician will shape brows during the procedure.

••(Brow Clients) Please discontinue having brows tinted or laminated prior to appointment.

••(Brow Clients) No electrolysis for at least 5 days before the procedure.

••(Brow & Eyeliner Clients) Discontinue use of any brow-growth serums like Latisse, as it can cause sensitivity or affect pigment

••(Eyeliner Clients) If you are having an eyeliner procedure; Please come to the appointment contact free.

••(Lip Clients) Patients prone to cold sores/fever blisters should take an anti-viral prior to treatment

••(Lip Clients) it is recommended that you start a sugar scrub 7 days prior to treatment.  This will remove dead skin; leaving a nice palate to work on.

Topical Anesthetic Advice

••Allergic reaction – can occur from any anesthetics used during the procedure. If you do suffer from an allergic reaction, you should contact your doctor immediately. Allergic reaction response may show through redness, swelling, rash, blistering, dryness or any other symptoms associated with an allergic reaction.

••Numbness – We cannot accept responsibility if the area to be treated does not respond to the numbing cream. Each individual is different according to skin type. Some clients report the area to be completely numb, while others may experience some discomfort.

••Procedure – For all procedures, a numbing cream/gel is used. The products are formulated to be perfectly safe and can be purchased over the counter from any pharmacy/chemist. The anesthetic is placed over the treatment area for 15-30 minutes then carefully removed prior to treatment. As a result of the treatment, combined with the use of the anesthetic, you can expect to experience some redness/swelling that can last 1-4 days. You should always follow your post procedure advice and after care for the best results.
