How To Prepare For My PERMANENT MAKEUP Appointment

If you’ve ever hired a professional painter, they will tell you that “it’s all in the prep.” Professional painters know that they get the best results when they spend extra time sanding, filling holes, making sure edges are smooth and applying the right primer.  With ombré powder brows, the prep process can be approached similar way, with much better results when you do!

It all starts with a good canvas! The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated.  

Here’s how to get your skin ready for your ombré powder brow procedure:

  • Do not thread/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before the procedure

  • Do not drink alcohol 48 hours prior to your appointment

  • Do not drink coffee 24 hours prior to your appointment

  • Do not tan two weeks prior to the service, or have a sunburned face

  • Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to the procedure

  • Do not work out the day of the procedure

  • Wash your hair the morning of your appointment, healing tattoos cannot get wet for the first 72 hours, so you will need to avoid washing your hair too soon

  • Do not have botox or filler 3 weeks prior to the procedure. Please inform us of any current injections.

  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners)

  • Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days prior to the procedure.

Here’s how to get ready for your lip tint tattoo or eyeliner procedure:

  • No alcohol or caffeinated products 24 hours before treatment and no aspirin or blood-thinning medications five days prior.

  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners).

  • Absolutely no injections of Novocaine, Botox or fillers should be administered to you ten days before treatment. Please inform us of any current injections.

  • All makeup should be removed and skin should be thoroughly cleansed prior to arrival.

  • The skin should be clear of any irritations.

  • If you use or have used Retin-A or any other medications, please advise the technician.

  • Wash your hair that morning - because you can't get your healing tattoo wet you will need to avoid washing your hair too soon

  • For clients with any history of cold sores/fever-blister/herpes, even if it was when you were a child, contact your physician and request a prescription for Zovirax, Valtrex or Famvir. Take 2 days before the procedure, the day of the procedure and 2 days after the procedure as directed and repeat on all visits.
