  1. Lidocaine anesthesia (If allergic, you would've had a reaction during a dental procedure.)

2.   Latex gloves.

4. Benadryl (Causes restless legs syndrome on rare occasions.)


  • Ask all questions necessary during CONSULTATION and PRIOR to the procedure until you feel confident and comfortable.

 

  • Find a good date, when you will be RELAXED.

 

  • If you have a nervous or anxious nature, ask your physician to prescribe helpful medication such as Valium or Xanax.

  • Upon arrival, take 2 Benadryl to minimize swelling and tears.

 

  • SILENCE YOUR CELL PHONE.

After Care Instructions

(7-10 Day Regimen)

  • Keep moist with A&D Ointment or Sterilized Petroleum Jelly. Apply twice a day with a clean, new Q-tip each time.

  • Do not touch, rub, scratch, pick or peel.

  • Apply an extra generous amount of ointment prior to showering.

  • Avoid steam (from hot tub or showering with hot water for prolonged time.)

  • Avoid direct water pressure.

  • Keep chemicals away from treated area.

  • Do not expose to sun or tanning bed.

  • Do not swim in fresh, salt or chlorinated water.

  • Avoid heavy perspiration (Salt removes pigment.)

  • Avoid exposure to unsanitary environment.

  • Do not apply topical cosmetics directly over the area during healing.

Lip Color Additional After Care

  • Avoid spicy foods.

  • Do not bite lips into food.

  • Cut food into tiny pieces.

  • Do not stretch the lips.

  • Drink through a straw.

  • Keep smothered with ointment at all times.

  • Avoid sticking to pillow while sleeping.

  • Keep mouthwash, toothpaste and ALL substances away from lips!

What to Expect During Healing

  • Expect some swelling, redness, itching and irritation during the healing process. Do not rub!

*   Outer Healing (dermis) completes in about 7 - 10 days.  Inner healing (epidermis) completes in 1 - 2 months.

  • Touch ups may be done a month after a procedure, not sooner.  Performing a touch up too early may cause scarring and the healing process of epidermis will interfere with pigment retention.

  • Some colors take 2 months or longer to settle in and show true results. Brows will oxidize and get darker before they soften in healing.  This is normal!

  • Scabs are dark.  Permanent makeup scabs are even darker because they contain pigment.  Scabs begin to come off on their own between day 4 - 7. A lighter color will appear underneath.  The new baby skin will have a waxy texture and will fog the design a bit until healing is complete.

  • We would love to see you AFTER 28 days of procedure, NOT BEFORE, in order to see true results.

  • Lighter and / or darker colors may be applied during touch up appointment to create balance and add dimension.

  • Heavier, thicker and more dramatic designs require additional sessions to build up to.  Your skin will only allow so much trauma at a time.

  • To complete a design one or two additional tweak sessions may be necessary.

  • Exposure to sun, anti-aging products and services that contain acids, lighteners and exfoliates cause premature fading of pigment.  Avoid the pigmented areas.

  • When getting a laser treatment, remind your technician to protect your permanent makeup tattoo.

  • Keep it fresh!  Come in once a year for a touch up.  It's only $150 within 12 months of your last procedure.
