Prepare yourself for

Permanent Makeup Procedure

Remember, with the proper prepare for your procedure, you will have much better results with your Permanent Makeup.  So, please read all carefully!

  • Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be slightly swollen or red, you are advised not to make social plans on the day of your procedure.

  • Do not apply any creams, cleansers, moisturizers or Neosporin for 14 days before your procedure.

  • No sun or tanning 7 days prior to procedure.

  • Do not take Aspirin or anti-inflammatory medication such as Ibuprofen 48 hours prior to your Permanent Makeup appointment.

  • Do not discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor, if medication may be a contraindicating with the treatment, we will let you know about it during your consultation.

  • Avoid alcohol or caffeine 48 hours prior to your Permanent Makeup appointment.

  • Getting a procedure while on your period can make you hypersensitive.

  • Avoid extreme exercise prior to and directly after procedure. No heavy sweating for 14 days. If you are on a workout regimen, please schedule your appointment when you are able to NOT WORK OUT.

  • If applicable, for example, you would like to recreate the look of your makeup, please wear your normal make-up to your appointment.

  • If you had cancer and you are receiving chemotherapy, you can have your treatment done no earlier than 6 months after your last chemo session. If you’d like to get your Permanent Makeup done earlier, we will be more than happy to see you for the procedure, but we will require a written approval letter from your oncologist.


Prior to your Permanent Makeup appointment think about the look that you wish to achieve. As experts in the field of color analysis and makeovers, we ensure that the correct colors and styles are chosen for you, however, you are part of the decision-making process. Permanent Makeup may require multiple sessions. To achieve the best results, our advice always return for a Touch-up appointment between 4 and 6 weeks after the initial treatment.

Be prepared for the color intensity to be sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become softer as the skin heals. This process can take up to 10 days.

Eyebrow Permanent Makeup:

  • If you get your eyebrows waxed or tinted, have this done at least 1 week prior to the procedure and wait 2 weeks after to continue.

  • IPL laser hair removal should be performed no less than 2 weeks before your procedure.

  • Botox in the brow region should be performed no less than 2 weeks pre-procedure.

Eyeliner (eyelid) Permanent Makeup:

  • Do not wear contact lenses to your appointment, bring your glasses.

  • If you have dry or sensitive eyes, there is a slight chance that you may get pink eye, if this occurs, consult with your Doctor for a prescription.

  • You may have mild swelling after your appointment and as a safety precaution, you may wish to have someone drive you home.

Lips Permanent Makeup:

  • If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex) and are scheduling a semi-permanent lip appointment we advise you to use anti-herpes medication, for example, Zovirax ointment that can be obtained from a chemist. Use it for 1-week prior and 1-week after your appointment to reduce the incidence of an outbreak by 50%. Oral anti-herpes medication (available on prescription, ask your physician) will control the incidence of an outbreak more or less completely. Permanent Makeup does not cause cold sores, however, if you carry the virus, it lays dormant in the nervous system and can be aroused by the infusion process.

  • Dermal fillers in the lip should be performed no less than 2 weeks before your procedure, but it is best to get them done after your Permanent Makeup appointment.

Remember, that the final result depends on how you prepare yourself for the procedure and properly your Permanent Makeup care after the procedure.
