Pre-Treatment Advice


GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Avoid caffeine the day of procedure.​
  • Refrain from alcoholic beverages 2 days prior to the procedure.
  • Do not use medication for 7 days prior to your procedure.
  • Consult with your physician prior to receiving any procedure.
  • Tweezing or waxing should be done 48 hours prior to the procedure.
  • Do not expose the areas to be treated to the sun or tanning beds for one week prior to procedure.
  • Fillers and Botox should be done 6 weeks prior to your scheduled procedure or done 6 weeks after the procedure.
  • Arrive for the procedure with a clean, dry face, hair wash, free of products and makeup.

SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS:

EYEBROWS
  • No eyebrow tinting 5 days before to procedure.
  • Tweezing or waxing should be done 3 days prior to the procedure.
  • Botox injections should be performed either 2 weeks prior to your scheduled procedure or 2 weeks after your procedure.

EYELINER
  • Do not wear contact lenses to the procedure and please remember to bring your glasses on the day of your procedure.
  • Do not use Latisse or eyelash enhancing serums at least 4 weeks prior to and 4 weeks after having a permanent eyeliner procedure.
  • All eyelash extensions or false eyelashes must be removed one week prior to procedure and cannot be applied for 30 days after final procedure.
  • Do not use any water-proof mascara or eyeliner for one month prior to procedure.  These products contain glue and it takes 30 days for the skin to exfoliate them off.

LIPS
  • If you are having lip procedure and have ANY history of cold sores, fever blisters, or herpes simplex, you are required to contact your physician to obtain the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks. Many physicians prescribe Valtrex (12 capsules of 500 mg each).  These can be taken 2 x a day, two days before micro-pigmentation and four days after, or as the physician prescribes. This is not a guarantee that you will not experience a breakout, but it will reduce the chances. If you cannot obtain the medication, you should at least take LYSINE for a week prior to and following the procedure. Lysine is available over the counter at many drug and nutrition stores.  It is recommended even if you have never had an outbreak.
  • Lip clients who have Mitral Valve Prolapse must consult their doctor to obtain prophylactic antibiotics prior to the procedure.
  • Do not use any lip color for 2 to 3 weeks prior to procedure.
  • 2 weeks prior to lip procedures, use a soft bristle toothbrush or wash cloth to gently exfoliate the lip area twice a day.
  • Fillers may effect color retention and actual lip shape.

                  Healing Process


Brows
Days 1 & 2:  The eyebrows are approximately 20 to 25% darker than they will be healed. Your skin is red under the pigment, which causes the color of the pigment to appear darker.
Day 3:  Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. 
Day 4:  The skin begins to flake, peeling from the outside edges first.
Day 7 to 10:  Color finishes flaking off and appears softer for a few days until color clarifies. Do not scratch off the color while it is flaking off.

***Come back for a touch up after 1 to 2 months, touch up does not include in the full price.***


Eyeliner
Day 1:  Swollen, like you’ve been crying, with a heavier eye makeup look.
Day 2:  Swollen, usually for only a few hours after waking up or the entire day depending on your healing process.
Day 4:  There is a slight “pinching” feeling: Some itching is normal as the skin begins to flake: DO NOT PICK AT IT.
Day 5:  Blinking movement of the eye usually removes all pigment by this day. Color will take a few more days to clarify to full color.
***Come back for a touch up after 1 to 2 months, touch up does not include in the full price.***


Lips
Day 1:  Swelling, tender, heavy thick lipstick look with a reddish brick color effect. Use an ice pack to keep the swelling down.
Day 2:  Slight swelling, reddish and tender.
Day 3 & 4:  Less swelling, thicker texture and sore.
Day 5:  Very chapped, but almost finished with first chapping stage.
Day 6:  A soft, rich color begins to appear.
Days 7-13:  Lip color disappears and the “frosty” (2 chapping stage) begins as a whitish haze on the lips.
Day 14:  Color “blooms” from within more and more each day until day 21 (3 weeks post procedure)
Day 21:  Healing complete; the color you see is the color you have. Your lips will remain a bit dry for a month or two. Use a good balm and they will return to normal color.
