Preparing for your Semi-Permanent Makeup procedure
It all starts with a good canvas! The procedure area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive and non-irritated. Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure.
Avoid alcohol and caffeine the 24-48 hours prior to the procedure, this will minimize any oozing/bleeding or swelling after the procedure and provide better results.
You DO NOT have to pluck, wax or tweeze your brows prior to your procedure.
Plan your procedure during non-menstrual/ovulating time of the month as it may cause more sensitivity during the treatment
Can I wear makeup to my appointment? No! Please come with your skin clean, exfoliated and moisturized. I will clean and sanitize the treatment area prior to beginning the procedure.
For lip blushing treatment please ensure your lips are not dry, exfoliate your lips before procedure (can mix 1:1 sugar & honey home made scrub) and moisturize with your favourite lip balm.
It is recommended to stay out of the sun two weeks prior and two weeks after your appointment. Plan accordingly.
If you bleach your eyebrows, it is not recommended to have this procedure done.
The chemicals will bleach the hair and the pigment as well.
No chemical peels 14 days prior or 14 days after having semi-permanent cosmetics performed. Going forward, avoid peels on the treated area completely.
Smoking will cause the pigment to fade prematurely and anesthetics will not last as long.
MICROBLADING WILL NOT BE PERFORMED IF YOU ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING.
Do not take Aspirin, Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen, UNLESS MEDICALLY NECESSARY, 48-72 hours prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
Permanent Makeup WILL NOT BE PERFORMED IF BOTOX OR FILLER IS DONE – IT CAN ONLY BE DONE 2 WEEKS BEFORE OR 2 WEEKS AFTER THE PROCEDURE.
You have to be off Accutane for 1 year.
**HERPES – Cannot perform procedure during an active outbreak. Prescribed medication must be taken for 3 days prior AND 3 days after procedure to reduce risk of infection (i.e. oral doctors prescribed medications). Consult with physician.**
You will need to return for your touch up treatment 4-6 weeks after the ﬁrst treatment. Fading will happen after each procedure. We do not have control over your body’s healing process. You may need to powder and/or pencil even after the healed results. This is an enhancement to your natural brows not a permanent one.
You may not be a good candidate for microblading if you have very large pores or severely oily skin. The strokes will feather or blur and your results will appear softer, solid or powdered looking. That is why we recommend Powder method for oily and combination skin.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL AND OLD PMU
Laser removal of the eyebrows or old PMU will cause more scar tissue. This can cause the pigment to fade prematurely or look blurry. There is also a chance that the pigment won't take at all. A consultation or current pictures of your current brows is required to determine if you are a good candidate.
