Pre - Care


  • Do not work out 24 hours before

  • NO alcohol or caffeine 24 hours (we can tell if you have when we start and will have you reschedule your appointment)

  • Avoid sun and tanning one week prior

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Advil/Ibuprofen or blood thinning medication within 48 hours

  • Avoid Fish Oil, Prenatal Vitamins, Nutritional Shakes (Shakeology, etc), and “Hair, Skin, Nail” supplements within 48 hours

  • Discontinue Retin-A at least 2 weeks prior (and avoid on eyebrow area after the procedure).

  • Refrain from the use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior (and avoid on the eyebrow area after the procedure).

  • Botox and filler on the forehead, temple, and eye area should be avoided 1 month prior for those who do not regularly receive injectables.

  • No brow waxing, tinting, or threading one week prior (the more natural hair you have, the better!)

  • Avoid Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, or facials for 4 weeks prior

Post - Care

Proper care of your permanent cosmetic after your initial treatment and each subsequent touch-up is essential for achieving the best results. Specific instructions are listed below. After the initial procedure and each subsequent touch-up, the color of your permanent cosmetic will always appear sharper and/or darker than anticipated – this is normal. Moderate swelling, skin irritation, blotchiness, or change in intensity of color, and some localized discomfort are normal within the first two or three days of your initial treatment.

  • In the first two weeks after your initial treatment, it is important to avoid both unsanitary and overly moist conditions. Use a fresh pillowcase after your treatment and do not sleep on your face or brows.

  • Avoid strenuous exercise for at least the first week, as sweat will increase your risk of infection. Do not use any makeup during the initial two-week healing period.

  • Skin creams, ointments, or lotions not provided or recommended by your technician should be avoided. Petroleum-based ointments combined with UV exposure carry a risk of allergic reactions; aloe vera products will cause discoloration of your permanent cosmetic treatment’s pigment.

  • Allow any scabbing, dry skin, or flaking to naturally exfoliate away; picking, rubbing, scratching, or touching with unwashed hands can cause scarring, prevent long-lasting results, and increase the risk of infection. Smoking can cause your permanent cosmetic to prematurely fade.

  • Avoid hot tubs, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools, direct shower spray, and hot water on your permanent cosmetic during these first two weeks. Limiting the time you spend in the shower is especially relevant, to avoid both direct water contact and excess steam. Using a shower cap to cover your forehead and eyebrow area while showering is recommended.

  • For the first 30 days after your initial permanent cosmetic procedure, avoid direct sun exposure and tanning. Most people are unaware of how much sun exposure we receive during our normal day-to-day routines. Wear a hat and/or sunglasses when outdoors.

For Eyebrows

Day 1 - Allow the treated area to dry; swelling, itching, and discomfort are normal.

Day 2-5 - Twice a day, gently dab the treated area with cotton dipped in clean, cool purified water and blot dry; apply the healing product in the aftercare package with a cotton-tipped applicator. The pigmented eyebrows will become obviously darker than your original eyebrow shade and/or the targeted color, this is normal. Swelling, itching, and discomfort are normal.

Day 5-10 - Continue cleaning and applying the recommended healing product twice a day, morning and night. Swelling and discomfort should subside, and scabbing should by now have almost or completely exfoliated naturally. You may notice loss of pigment but it will come back.

Day 14 - Your targeted eyebrow color should settle in, but continue to avoid applying any makeup.

Day 30-60 - You may resume using makeup. A touch-up is highly recommended to achieve the best and longest-lasting look.

For Lip

Day 1 - Your lips may feel dry and taut; treat them with the healing product in the aftercare package for moisturizing. Frequently dab the treated area with cotton dipped in clean, cool water and blot dry, and apply the recommended healing product with a cotton-tipped applicator. We recommend drinking through a straw, avoiding hot and/or spicy food, and keeping food and toothpaste from touching your lips for the first two days. Movement of your lips is encouraged to decrease numbness; oozing, discomfort, and swelling are normal.

Day 2-5 - Continue cleaning and applying the recommended healing product. Swelling and discomfort should subside; allow your lips to peel and exfoliate naturally. They will be very dry!

Day 7-15 - Your lips’ color will become darker and bruised-looking; this is normal.

Day 30-45 - Your lips’ color will become bright and shiny. Scabs should now be completely exfoliated naturally and your lips will be smooth.

Day 45-60 - Your lips’ targeted color should settle in and a touchup is recommended to achieve the best and longest-lasting look. Make an appointment with us for a checkup or touchup to ensure the best and longest-lasting result.

  • The suggestive timeline above may vary between people as everyone's skin is different.

  • Touch-ups are essential for monitoring and adjusting the healing of your permanent cosmetic, as well as assuring their longevity, and the color will soften within two weeks of each treatment. While touch-ups are recommended every one to three months, this will vary depending on your targeted color, type of skin, type of skin care products used, and your amount of sun exposure.

For all permanent makeup

Once healed, you should always protect your permanent cosmetic with good sunscreen; prolonged UV exposure will cause fading. Indefinitely avoid using Retin A or Alpha Hydroxy solutions or creams on or close to the area. All permanent cosmetics appear more vibrant with moistened with emollient products.

If you have any questions or concerns about your healing process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
