Before the Procedure

To help prepare our clients for their appointment, we've compiled the information below so that you can have the best results possible! We know it sounds like a lot, but proper care before your procedure is crucial to optimum pigment retention. 

You will need to reschedule your appointment if you have/are the following at the time of your appointment:

  • On the procedure site- Active eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, psoriasis, acne or fever blister. Pigment will not take on compromised skin.

  • Pregnant or nursing- While your body is going through hormonal changes, it increases the chance of unpredictable results and increased risk of infection.

  • Prone to keloids- Since permanent makeup punctures the skin, there is always a risk for people that are prone to keloids to heal with keloids scaring.

  • Allergic to color- Our pigments are composed of colorants.

 

You will need to get approval from your doctor and bring a note if you have/undergoing the following:

  • Radiation or chemotherapy- We love doing permanent makeup on cancer patients! We just want to ensure we are going about it in the safest way possible for you.

  • Any condition that results in a compromised immune system- The risk of developing an infection is higher.

  • Glaucoma- There is an increased risk of infection for eyeliner procedures.

  • Diabetes and/or high blood pressure- Your condition needs to be stable and under control. There is a chance of increased bleeding, longer healing times and higher risk of infection which can affect your results.

  • If you have any medical issue/concern, please consult with your physician to confirm permanent makeup is right for you.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS:

Rescheduling / Cancellation Policy: We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise. Please understand that because permanent makeup appointments can range from 2-5 hours, insufficient notice greatly impacts your permanent makeup artist and prevents wait list clients from getting in. We ask that you give us at least 48 hour notice for rescheduling or cancellation of an appointment. Anything within 48 hours will result in forfeiting your deposit and a new deposit must be made for future appointments.

  • You must wait 1 year after discontinuing Accutane before getting permanent makeup.

  • If you have a heart condition, pacemaker, prosthetics or an organ transplant and take antibiotics before any invasive procedure, please take antibiotics prior to having permanent makeup done.

PRE-PROCEDURE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • 6 weeks before- No peels/lasers around the procedure area

  • 6 weeks before Lip Procedures- Keep your lips hydrated with balm constantly. Also increase your water intake a week before. Dry, chapped lips don't take color well and you'll see a patchy/faded result.

  • 5 weeks before- Do not use Latisse, Lash boost or other hair growth products on your brows (if getting brows done) or eyelashes (if getting eyeliner done). Resume using 3 weeks after the procedure date.

  • 2 weeks before- Stay out of the sun for prolonged periods. Having even slightly sunned skin will significantly reduce your pigment retention and will result in having to reschedule your appt.

  • 2 weeks before- No Botox in your forehead (if getting brows) or around your eyes (if getting eyeliner)

  • 4 days before- Discontinue taking fish oil, vitamin E supplements or other blood thinners UNLESS instructed by your physician. When in doubt, ask your physician.

  • Eyeliner Procedures- If you have eyelash extensions, have them removed or time the procedure so it occurs right before you are due for a fill so you have the least amount of lashes possible.

  • Lip Procedures- Please call your doctor, let he or she know you're getting your lips done and ask for a prescription for fever blisters. Follow your doctor’s dosage instructions.

 

​DAY-BEFORE & DAY-OF:

  • All Procedures- No sweating/exertion the day of your procedure.

  • All Procedures- Please bring the remaining balance for your procedure in either cash or check. We do encourage booking your follow up at the time of service which will require a $100 deposit.

  • Brow & Eyeliner Procedures- Come with your normal brow and/or eyeliner makeup on so that we can see your day to day style for the desired procedure (no mascara if doing eyeliner).

  • Eyeliner Procedures- If you wear contacts, please bring glasses.

  • Lip Procedures- Do not wear your lip makeup but bring your lip makeup products. We need to see your lips without color first and then with makeup on so we can accurately color match.

  • Lip Procedures- No alcohol 24 hrs before.

  • Lips Procedures- If you plan on getting a dental block, please bring $50 cash or check.

 

POST-PROCEDURE INSTRUCTIONS:

It takes up to 14 days for your procedure to heal and the pigment to settle. During that time stay out of the sun and heat, do not exercise or engage in any activity that causes your face to turn pink/sweat and no facials/peels for 2 weeks. Please plan accordingly.
