PERMANENT MAKE UP

Pre-Procedure Advice

A patch test is required before having a treatment

Permanent cosmetic procedures normally require multiple treatment sessions. For best results, clients will be required to return for at least one retouch procedure, usually between four and six weeks after the initial procedure.

Be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals. This process can take up to ten days.

Advice for all permanent cosmetic procedures

  • Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, it is advised not to make social plans for the same day.
  • Please wear your normal makeup to the salon on the day of the procedure.
  • Please inform your technician if you have taken aspirin, Ibuprofen or Coumadin within the two days leading up to procedure.
  • Do not discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor.
  • Do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment.
  • A patch test will be performed unless waived upon request.

Lip Liner/Colour

  • If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex), we advise you to contact your doctor to obtain the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks.
  • Alternatively, obtain herpes medication for example Zovirax from your local chemist and use one week before and one week after your procedure. This can help minimise an outbreak.
  • Permanent cosmetic procedures do not cause cold sores, however if you carry the virus, it lays dormant in the body and can be aroused by the procedure.
  • Lip wax or bleaching treatments should not be undertaken for at least a two-week period preceding your permanent cosmetic procedure.

Eyebrow Procedures

  • Any waxing should be performed at least 48 hours before the procedure: Electrolysis no less than five days before the procedure.
  • Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for two weeks prior to the procedure.

Eyeliner procedures

  • Any eyelash tinting or eyelash perming should be carried out no sooner than 1 week before or two weeks after the procedure.
  • Do not wear contact lenses during or immediately following the procedure. Remember to bring your glasses. You may resume wearing your contact lenses as soon as your eyes feel comfortable. (This is normally 24 hours after the procedure).

You may have some swelling, as a safety precaution, we recommend that you have someone available to drive you home.

Beauty spots

  • We advise not to have a perfectly round spot, as this is not natural looking.
