Checklist for ALL Permanent Makeup Procedures

As an artist, my goal is always to ensure that you receive the best possible results from your treatment. This is heavily reliant on your skin being healthy, strong, and calm. You will get optimal results when your skin is properly prepped... It all starts with a good canvas! The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated.  Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure:

In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:

  • Do not drink alcohol 24. hours before your tattoo
  • Do not consume caffeine directly before your procedure (limit it to one cup of coffee the morning of the procedure)
  • Do not take an Aspirin, Ibuprofen or blood thinning agents 24 hours prior

The Prep:

  • Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before the procedure
  • 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 workout the day of the procedure
  • Do not have botox 3 weeks prior to the procedure
  • 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

If you have certain health conditions or on certain medications, permanent cosmetics may not be for you:

  • Pregnant or nursing 
  • Blood thinning medications
  • Autoimmune disease (must have signed medical release from doctor)
  • Viral Infections and/or diseases
  • Tendency towards Keloids
  • Skin irritations or psoriasis near the treated are (sunburn, rashes, acne etc.)
  • Sick with a cold or flu
  • Had Botox in the past 2 weeks
  • Have used Accutane in the last 6 months 
  • Disorders that limit your healing abilities

Additional Information for Lip Blush Treatments 💋

For the Lip Blush (tinted lips) procedure please follow the checklist for all permanent makeup procedures (listed above) as well as these additional pre-care instructions:

  • 1 week prior start using a good lip conditioner/mask/balm several times a day. We want to get the lips in a great condition where they are healthy and hydrated!

  • You can gently exfoliate the lips for one week prior to your appointment. You can either buy a gentle scrub or make your own using 1 drop coconut oil & 1 teaspoon of sugar to create your own scrub. (Do not over scrub the lips, we are just trying to gently remove any excess dry skin.) Always follow the scrub up with a lip conditioner/balm.

  • If you suffer from cold sores in the past, it is advised that you consult with your doctor prior to the lip blush treatment. Many clients can avoid a coldsore post procedure by taking Valtrex (prescription) 1 dose on the day of the procedure and 1/day for 3 days following the appointment. L-Lysine (vitamin supplement) is also helpful to boost your immune system and promote faster healing.

  • Many clients have had lip fillers and this is okay. I suggest having the lip blush procedure at least 4 weeks after the lip injections have been administered.
