(Before procedure)
Please read instructions below prior to your appointment, consider precautions that may need to be considered before your appointment.
If you are taking any kind of blood thinning medication, you will want to stop taking them one week prior to your appointment. If it is harmful to stop, please do not stop, but be aware it could have an impact on the healing process.
If you are having a lip procedure, and you are prone to cold sores, it would be best to pre-medicated starting the day before your appointment with an oral medication to keep the virus from developing. The prescription can be obtained through your dentist or general practitioner.
If you are attending for eyeliner procedure and you are using lash growth products it is strongly advised to stop using the product one month prior to your appointment. It is also strongly advised to hold off on resuming the product until two weeks after the permanent eyeliner is applied.
Eyeliner, Brows & Lips
Immediately after your Semi permanent makeup procedure, you will notice that the area will appear much darker than the desired result expected, This is quit normal. The colour will eventually start to lighten up over the next couple day’s eyeliner and eyebrows will become very natural-looking at the end of the first week. In most cases, the final result looks more natural than everyday makeup.
It is important that you keep the area clean and dry otherwise it will inhibit the healing process.
You may experience mild scabbing of the colour after the first few days. This is completely normal as the outer layer of your skin exfoliates. Do not pick, peel or force the skin to come off. Be careful when washing your face. It is o.k. if the area gets soap or water on it, but do not scrub the area. When you are finished, gently blot the area dry.
Eyebrows usually do not swell or bruise.
It is normal for eyebrows and eyeliner to feel itchy for about 6 weeks after the procedure.
Infections are very rare but sometimes occur if you apply ointment that contaminated or if you use an old tube of mascara too soon after the procedure. Some signs to look for include: bloodshot eyes that continue to get worse rather than better, burning or swelling that persists for more than 24 hours, or any type of discharge in the eyes. Please call your doctor immediately if you are experiencing an eye infection. Antibiotic eye drops usually clear up the problem on the first day.
Both areas may experience slight swelling or bruising for the first 24 to 48 hours. Cold compresses may be applied to the eyes to reduce this. For eyeliner, most clients are just a little puffy as if they were crying. In most lip cases, clients continue their normal activities; the lips just look more dramatic than usual.
In some lip cases, the colour disappears completely within the first six weeks, but do not panic. The colour will start to come back again as the lips continue healing. Because skin on the lips is more delicate, it usually takes four to six weeks until you know what the final colour will be.
Lipstick or lip gloss may be worn after the first week if the colour seems too light.
Be careful when eating or drinking anything extremely hot, you do not want to burn the skin.
It is normal for your lips to be extremely dry or chapped as they heal. Lipstick, Chap Stick or lip gloss will not provide enough moisture during the first week.
