GENERAL PRE CARE instructions for ALL cosmetic tattoo,

You must strictly follow these guidelines to achieve best micropigmentation results.
*DO NOT CONSUME before in any form:
Alcohol or caffeine, energy drinks at least a full 24 hours before
At least a week before: Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin A & E, fish oil, pain killers, cold or flu medicine, "hair, skin, nail", body detox, power/green shakes, fat burner supplements, turmeric, garlic, Gingko Biloba, spicy food/seasonings, antibiotics, steroids 4 weeks before. All of them cause you bleeding and push away pigment which will results poor pigment retention=more paid visits.
*IF YOU ARE TAKING OR UNDERGOING any MEDICATIONS, MEDICAL TREATMENTS, PRE/POST SURGERIES, BEAUTIFYING INJECTIONS, LASER TREATMENTS, please
CHECK WITH your PHYSICIAN if it is appropriate for you to have a cosmetic tattoo/permanent makeup/microblading. Please, we asking you to obtain a note, that permits you to have a cosmetic tattoo within the upcoming months of your procedure (PMU usually is a multi-session procedure that requires coming back for touch ups). Please, make sure that note includes a practice/doctor name, address, contact information, and clearly stated release for a cosmetic tattoo procedure. It can be signed on your doctor's form or you can ask for our form to be emailed to you. We will not perform any PMU procedure if we believe it might compromise your health and safety. Please obtain a doctor's note of approval if in doubt.
*DISCONTINUE ALL SKIN CARE products containing any of those: Glycolics, AHA, BHA, Retin-A, Kojic Acid and other lighteners or exfoliators, foto facials and chemical peels 4 weeks prior on eyebrow areas and 3 weeks after your procedure. Check your moisturizer, face wash, BB or CC creams and makeup primers for anything that says acid.
*AVOID sun tan and spray or self tanning products on the face a week prior to procedure. DO NOT COME with SUN BURNED or INFLAMED SKIN on FACE until you completely healed! YOUR SKIN MUST BE HEALTHY AND WITHOUT ANY BREAKOUTS, irritations, and cuts. We don't tattoo over moles or skin tags. Please have it remove and allow it to heal prior to scheduling any appointments.
*SOCIAL, SPORTS & VACATION ACTIVITY & MENSTRUAL CYCLE - try to book your appointment accordingly if possible: During period you will be more sensitive. Right after the procedure and up to the next 5 to 10 days PMU usually looks very dark and heavy. The body can be puffy or swollen, red etc. It might not be the best idea to have PMU done when you want to look your best for a special event. You will need at least 2 to 3 months to complete the PMU process. You cannot cover it with regular makeup! Also, you must avoid sun exposure, swimming, heavy exercise/sports activity, sweating, saunas, pools, beaches, dust etc. Over 95% clients have not found it necessary to take days off from work and normal daily activity to "hide" themselves at home.
Additional instructions for EYEBROWS
*Do not tweeze, wax, or dye brows for a week prior. Threading is okay, but we prefer to perfect the shape according to permanent makeup procedure.
*Electrolysis should not be done for a week prior and three weeks after.
*Do not cover freshly done eyebrows with any makeup or SPF for the following two weeks; this action might change the color and/or cause infections.
*Do not wear waterproof eyebrow makeup on the day of the procedure.
Additional Pre Care for EYELINER
*Do not wear contact lens during the procedure or for week after.
*Bring sunglasses to wear home. Eyes may be light sensitive.
*Stop using Latisse (or other growth serums) 4 weeks before the eyeliner procedure. You may resume them when your procedure is complete.
*Do not dye or perm lashes for 10 days prior and for 3 weeks after.
*Do not use an eyelash curler on the day of the procedure and for 3 weeks after.
*If you have had any type of eye surgery, consult with the physician about how long you should wait before having a permanent eyeliner procedure.
*Do not wear waterproof makeup on the day of the procedure. Certain cleansers block pigment and numbing absorption.
*If you wear any kind of lash extensions they need to be removed a week before the procedure and new one can be filled in three weeks afterwards. We suggest you will wait until the eyeliner procedure and healing process is fully completed.
* We advise you do not to drive/operate any mechanical vehicle after the eyeliner procedure for at least 8 hours.
Additional Pre Care For LIPS
* If you are prone to cold sores you will need an antiviral prescription. Physicians usually instruct clients to begin taking it 3+ days before procedure, for a 7-10 day course and 2+ days after.
* If you have had any type of lip surgery or fillers consult with your doctor about how long you should wait before having a permanent makeup procedure on the lips.
* Prepare dry lips by massaging gently with soft tooth brush for exfoliation (or you can use a special lip exfoliation) and by using a moisturizing lip balm or natural honey. Dry, cracked lips are more sensitive, tends to bleed more frequently, and do not retain pigments easily.
