Before getting your
Semi-Permanent makeup

Information & Advice

Permanent makeup procedures normally require multiple treatment sessions. For best results, clients will be required to return for at least one finishing session. This will take place 5-7 weeks after initial procedure. Those with oily skin may require an additional touch up. Please be aware that colour intensity will be significantly darker and sharper immediately and a few days after the initial procedure, but the colour will typically reduce by 30%-50%.

Although numbing cream/solution is used during the procedure, sensitivity or discomfort may still be felt. Skin may be red, bruised and/or swollen after the procedure.

Please do not drink alcohol 24 hours prior to the treatment.

Unless medically necessary, please avoid taking things that thin the blood like fish oils, herbals, Vitamin E, aspirins, and/or ibuprofen and do not donate plasma in the 7 days prior to the procedure.

Where possible, try to avoid the following herbs and spices prior to your appointment : Black pepper, Cardamom, any member of ginger family, Cayenne, cinnamon, Garlic, Horseradish, Mustard. 

Patients prone to cold sores/fever blisters should take an anti-viral prior to treatment. Hormone therapies can affect pigmentation and/or cause sensitivity.

Discontinue use of any brow- or lash-growth serums such as Cavilla, Matisse or RevitaLash, as it can cause sensitivity/effects pigment retention.

Botox, AHA products and retinoids should be avoided for 2 weeks prior to the procedure.

Topical Anesthetic Advice

Allergic reaction can occur from any aesthetics (lidocaine) used during the procedure. If you do suffer from the allergic reaction, you should contact doctor immediately. Allergic reaction response may show through redness, swelling, rash, blistering, dryness or any other symptoms associated with an allergic reaction.

Numbness - We cannot accept responsibility if the area to be treated does not respond to the numbing cream. Each individual is different according to the skin type. Some clients report the area to be completely numb, while others may experience some discomfort.
