Semi-Permanent Make-Up Requirements

 

Before your procedure:

  • Please wear your usual make up to the consultation so your technician can see how you would usually wear your make up. If you have a desired design, please bring the photo along to the consultation.
  • A patch test is required 48 hours prior to treatment, otherwise it will be waived upon request.
  • No alcohol, or any drinks containing caffeine should be consumed 4 hours prior to treatment as they effect the blood circulation which can increase bleeding.
  • Avoid direct sunlight on the treated area 7 days prior to treatment to prevent sunburn.
  • Be aware that if you are tired or menstruating, this may increase your sensitivity to pain. If so, then you can take your standard pain killer 30 minutes prior to treatment. Do not take ibuprofen, Vitamin E, aspirin or omega-3 24 hours prior to treatment, unless it is medically required. Please consult with your doctor if this is the case.
  • Exfoliate the skin lightly 3-5 days prior to treatment.
  • Do not wear contact lenses for eyeliner only.
  • Do not use hair growth stimulants 7 days prior to treatment.
  • Eyelash tint or perming is recommended 3 days prior to eyeliner treatment.
  • To prevent eye swelling you may want to take an antihistamine 30 minutes prior to eyeliner treatment.
  • Wait 3 months after laser eye surgery.
  • Remove eyelash extensions before procedure.
 

Following your procedure:

  • Do not perform any heavy exercise 7 days after treatment, especially on the day of treatment as the heat will expand the pores which in turn will affect the healing process.
