Our Pre-Procedure Guidelines for Perfect Permanent Makeup

The path to perfection begins with the right preparation. Here's your comprehensive Pre-Procedure Guidelines to ensuring stunning results:

Before Your Appointment:

  1. Social Plans: On the day of your procedure, expect some mild swelling or redness. It's wise to avoid social plans to allow your skin to recover comfortably.

  2. Avoid Topicals: Refrain from applying creams, cleansers, moisturizers, or Neosporin for 14 days prior to your appointment.

  3. Sun and Tanning: Steer clear of sun exposure and tanning for at least 7 days before your procedure.

  4. Medications: Do not take Aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication like Ibuprofen 48 hours before your appointment. Consult your doctor before discontinuing any medication.

  5. Alcohol and Caffeine: Lay off alcohol and caffeine 48 hours prior to your appointment.

  6. Menstrual Cycle: Scheduling your procedure around your period is advisable, as it can make you more sensitive.

  7. Exercise: Avoid intense workouts for 14 days before and after the procedure. Plan accordingly to ensure no heavy sweating.

  8. Makeup: If you aim to recreate your makeup look, wear your regular makeup to the appointment.

  9. Chemotherapy: If you've had chemotherapy, consider scheduling your treatment no sooner than 6 months after your last session. If earlier, we'll need written approval from your oncologist.


Eyebrow Permanent Makeup:

  1. Wax or tint: If you wax or tint your brows, do so at least 1 week before the procedure, with a 2-week post-procedure wait.

  2. IPL Laser Hair Removal: Ensure this is done at least 2 weeks prior to your procedure.

  3. Botox: Opt for Botox in the brow region at least 2 weeks before your procedure.


Eyeliner Permanent Makeup:

  1. Contact Lenses: Leave these out for your appointment and bring your glasses.

  2. Dry or Sensitive Eyes: If you have these conditions, there's a slight risk of pink eye; consult your doctor for advice.

  3. Mild Swelling: Be prepared for mild swelling post-appointment, and consider arranging transportation home for safety.


Lips Permanent Makeup:

  1. Cold Sores (Herpes Simplex): If you have a history of cold sores, use anti-herpes medication a week before and after your appointment to reduce outbreaks.

  2. Dermal Fillers: Schedule these at least 2 weeks before your procedure, preferably after your Permanent Makeup session.


Follow this Pre-Procedure Guidelines and remember, the outcome of your Permanent Makeup journey hinges on both your pre-procedure preparations and diligent post-procedure care. Your commitment ensures the lasting beauty you've always desired.
