TIPS BEFORE AND AFTER TREATMENT

TIPS BEFORE AND AFTER MICROPIGMENTATION TREATMENT

Permanent makeup treatments usually require two treatment sessions. For best results, clients will need to return for one retouching (pigmentation) treatment, usually four to eight weeks after the first treatment. Please be prepared for the color to be much sharper and darker immediately after treatment, but the color will become lighter as the tissue heals. This process may take up to 10-15 days.

applies to all MICROPIGMENTATION treatments

  • Because delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, it is not recommended to make social plans on the same day.
  • On the day of the treatment, you should wear regular, everyday makeup in the salon, which will allow the person performing the treatment to visually assess your face.
  • Please inform us if you are taking aspirin or ibuprofen within two days before the procedure. It is recommended to stop taking aspirin 2 days before the procedure because it affects blood clotting.
  • Do not stop taking any medications before consulting your doctor.
  • Do not drink alcohol 24 hours before the procedure.
  • An allergy test will be performed during the first consultation visit, unless waived at the client’s request.
  • You should not sunbathe or use a solarium for 7 days before the treatment.

 

IN ADDITION TO EYEBROW TREATMENTS

  • Waxing should be performed at least 48 hours before the procedure, and electrolysis should be performed no less than seven days before the procedure.
  • You should not henna/tint your eyebrows two weeks before the procedure.

IN ADDITION TO EYELINER TREATMENTS

  • Henna or eyelash perming should be performed no earlier than a week before or two weeks after the treatment.
  • Remove your contact lenses before treatment. Remember to take your glasses and lens case. You can resume wearing contact lenses as soon as your eyes feel comfortable. (This is usually 24 hours after treatment).
  • You may have swelling, as a precaution we recommend that someone be able to take you home.
  • False eyelashes/extensions must be removed before this treatment
  • You should stop using eyelash conditioners/serums 3 months before the procedure.

IN ADDITION TO LIP TREATMENTS

  • If you have a history of herpes, we advise you to contact your doctor for appropriate prescription medications.
  • Alternatively, buy a herpes medicine from the pharmacy, e.g. Zovirax and use it for 7 days before the procedure and 7 days after the procedure.
  • Permanent lip makeup treatments DO NOT CAUSE cold sores, but if you are a carrier of the virus,  it may be reactivated.
  • Waxing or bleaching the hair around the mouth should not be performed for at least 14 days before the procedure.
  • Dry and chapped lips should be lubricated with a moisturizing cream for 7 days before the treatment. You should stop the habit of biting and licking your lips, and you can also gently exfoliate your lips 2-3 days before the procedure to remove calloused epidermis.

PERMANENT MAKEUP AFTER CARE

 

To obtain the best result and a healed effect, proper post-treatment care is necessary. Please note that color unevenness is to be expected. This is the purpose of a follow-up visit. Please read the tips below and if you have any questions or concerns during the healing process, please contact us.

THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS MAY APPEAR FOR 72 HOURS

 

  • Flaking
  • Tenderness
  • Dryness and itchiness in the treated area
  • Swelling and redness

 

Daily Care to follow for at least one week until your procedure has fully healed.

 
• Protect from water 
• Protect from mechanical damage
• Protect from infections
• Always wash your hands before applying the aftercare healing balm.
• Prevent cross-contamination of your healing balm by using a clean cotton bud for each application.
• We recommend you use a gentle facial cleanser or baby wipes to clean the face during the healing period AND avoid the treated area
• Keep hair away from the treated site to prevent any infection.
• Some itching is normal. DO NOT PICK, PEEL OR SCRATCH the treated area or the colour may heal unevenly and you risk scarring and infection. Allow the wound to flake ON ITS OWN.
• No makeup should be applied for 72 hours after the procedure.
• Do not expose the healing skin to direct sun, tanning beds, Jacuzzis, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, direct shower spray, hot water, skin creams or ointments other than what you have been instructed to use for TWO WEEKS following your procedure.
• If the area gets wet, gently pat dry using clean tissue.
• Remember, your selected colour will be stronger and more sharply defined immediately after treatment but as the healing process occurs the colour will soften and lighten.
 
During first 4 weeks
• Avoid sun and/or sunbeds exposure
• Avoid saunas, swimming or/and excessive soaking of the treated skin.
 
Long Term Care
• Use a good sunscreen. Sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics.
