Eat well before the procedure (proper meals for at least 24 hours.)
Do not wear contact lenses; do not wear them for 48 hours after.
Wear your normal makeup, and bring your eyebrow and/or lip pencils with you to the procedure.
For eyebrow procedures, any tweezing or waxing should be done at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the procedure, electrolysis no less than five (5) days before.
If you have had fever blisters in the past, you must obtain a prescription for Zovirax or Valtrex prior to treatment.
Do not use aspirin or ibuprofen (Advil) for two weeks prior to procedure, Tylenol only.
You may take extra vitamins and calcium prior to appointment to reduce swelling, help healing, and possibly reduce bruising.
DO NOT take any painkillers before procedure. You can take Benadryl unless you have a thyroid disorder. If you take Benadryl, you must arrange a ride home after.
Clean areas several times per day by splashing with cool water, then reapply ointment for 4 days, longer if you feel it is needed. If itching occurs, you may use an over the counter hydro-cortisone cream, but NOT on eyeliner.
You will most likely experience swelling, redness, bruising, and bloodshot eyes following an eyeliner procedure.
It is natural that some flaking will occur, however, do not pick or scratch flakes or scabs.
DO NOT go into the sun or swimming pool for two weeks. Wear sunscreen.
You may shower normally on the following day after the procedure.
Lip liner clients should continue any medications for at least one week after the procedure.
Retin-A and facial peels may remove your makeup, so please avoid the permanent cosmetics when using these.
For eyeliner clients, purchase new mascara for after the procedure, old cosmetics could cause infection to the “open” skin.
NOTE: It is completely normal to lose about 1/3 of the eyebrow color and up to 2/3 [or 70%] of lip color during the healing process. In about 7-10 days you should see the color in the dermis through the healed epidermis. This is the color that will stay.
