PREPARATION FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT:

It is important you follow these instructions!!

Avoid using active ingredients in your skin care regimen for the following reasons:

– Color Alteration: Active ingredients, such as retinoids and alpha hydroxy acids, can affect the color retention of the pigment used in permanent makeup. They may cause the pigment to fade or change in undesirable ways.

– Skin Sensitivity: Some actives can make the skin more sensitive and prone to inflammation. This can lead to increased discomfort during the permanent makeup procedure and a longer healing process.

– Compromised Healing: Actives can slow down the skin’s natural healing process. After getting permanent makeup, it’s essential for the skin to heal properly to maintain the quality and longevity of the pigmentation.

– Unpredictable Results: Using actives can make the outcome of the permanent makeup less predictable. This can result in uneven color distribution or difficulty in achieving the desired results.

– Post-Procedure Care: Some actives may not be suitable for the aftercare of permanent makeup. Proper healing and maintenance are essential for the longevity and appearance of the pigment.

AVOID THE FOLLOWING:

– 1 week prior to your procedure, DO NOT:
Consume any blood thinners such as caffeine, alcohol, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, B6, Omega 3, evening Primrose unless medically necessary – do not consume after the procedure either. It can slow down the healing process.

– Do not use Retin A skincare products close to the enhancement area 1 month prior to and after your procedure. If you have been using these products everyday 6 months – 1 year, stop using the products for a minimum of 3 months before booking

– Do not use AHA skincare products close to the enhancement area 2 weeks prior to and after your procedure.

– Waxing treatments should be performed no less than 3 days prior to your enhancement

– IPL Laser hair removal should be performed no less than 2 weeks prior to your enhancement.

– Bring along the makeup you apply and any photos of the look that you want to achieve.

– Your health needs to be in good condition. A medical history form will need to be completed.

– No anti-aging treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, laser, facials 2 weeks before your appointment.

– No facial injections 1 month prior to procedure.

– No waxing, tanning or tinting the eyebrow area 3 days before your appointment.

– On the day of your appointment avoid caffeine/exercise. It would be best to wash your hair prior to your brow appointment since hot showers are not recommended.
