To Care For Your Permanent Make Up

Precare - Step 1

  • If you are experiencing any symptoms such as fever, runny nose, headaches, aches or pains, coughs and congestion. Please give us a call, and stay home, we will happily re book your appointment.
  • Covid Vaccine. In our experience, it’s best to wait a minimum of 2-6 months after your last Covid Vaccination for best retention, as the bodies immune response has the ability to cause the skin to reject the pigment.
  • You’re in control. We want you to be fully involved in the creation process. We’re here to enhance your look, not change who you are. We empower you with a celebrity make over that lasts for years to come.
  • We pride ourselves on listening to our clients and giving you what you truly desire. Of course we will share our expertise, and provide a look you’ll love!
  • Please wear your desired look in to your appointment so we can assess colour, shape and density to best support your style.
  • Read our Universal Blood Thinners PDF
  • Oil supplements will soften the skin and are blood thinners causing bleeding, bruising and pigment migration.  We want the skin as firm, healthy and strong as possible.
  • Oil Supplements Examples (Q10, FLAX, FISH, PRIMROSE, KRILL, OMEGA, COD LIVER, ETC ) or Vitamin E or D OR CLEANSE WITH BABY OIL, or use ANY OIL PRODUCTS ON YOUR SKIN (check the ingredient list).
  • Oil Products on the skin Oil serums used topically will inhibit the pigment from binding into the skin. This also includes oil based make up removers. We recommend switching to water base for 6 weeks prior to your appointment for best results.
  • Alcohol is a blood thinner causing bruising, bleeding and pigment migration and/ or lack of retention.
  • Do not take pain medications that are blood thinners such as: ADVIL, ALIEVE, Neproxin, Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Midol etc.  These will cause bleeding resulting in bruising and poor colour retention.  TYLENOL is OK.
  • No medication should ever be discontinued without first consulting your physician. You can resume your routine right after the procedure, so bring your meds with you.
  • Caffeine will increase anxiety and your ability to freeze.
  • We want your procedure to be very comfortable. These are stimulants that reduce the effectiveness of the anesthetic.
  • Do not rush to get to your appointment, this will give a surge of adrenaline causing poor freezing and discomfort during your procedure.
  • When your metabolism is running slow you will stay frozen longer and be comfortable throughout your service.
  • Please have a solid meal like a sandwich, not just a banana or a snack.
  • Do not get any facial treatments prior to your appointment for one month this includes: FACIALS, DEM-ABRASION, BOTOX, LASER, FILLERS, CHEMICAL PEELS, IPL, COOL SCULPTING.
  • Cosmetic Surgery You must be healed for a minimum of 6 weeks after any medical procedure. Having cosmetic tattooing done in your recovery down time is not a wise choice.
    Your immune system is vulnerable & having an open wound may be a risk. Please be safe not sorry as your health is worth more than vanity.
  • Refrain from all Spa & Salon services including hair services and massages until the work is completely healed (MIN 3 WEEKS AFTER).
  • What to bring. We recommend sunglasses and hat, as you’ll want to protect your work from the sun for 2 weeks after your appointment.
  • Meter Parking. Only plug 1 hour in (take the meter number) so we can add more time when it expires.  If you plug for the full 2 hours we can not add more time after.
  • Pay by phone app: Add 1 hour in and set a timer on your phone.We will add the additional time there after.

Prepare For Your Services - Step 2

  • Be off OILS topically and internally for 6 weeks.
  • Please come with your eyeliner drawn on so we have a reference.
  • Do not wear contact lenses during or after any eyeliner procedure. You will be required to wear your glasses through the healing process for up to 2 weeks.
  • To help reduce swelling, feel free to take a (sleepy time) Benadryl an hour before your procedure. It helps to suppress the histamine response that causes swelling and will make for a more comfortable recovery.
  • If you are on RESTASIS you must consult with your doctor, and be off it for a minimum of 6 weeks prior, and two weeks after the eye procedure. It has the ability to effect your procedure and healing, plus may cause complications due to vascular structure of the eyelid.  Please clear with your physician first.

  • Lash growth serums. You must be off lash growth serums such as: Latisse, EyEnvy, Rapid Lash etc a minimum 6 weeks prior to your procedure.  It causes dilation of the vessels resulting in bleeding, migration of the pigment, extreme sensitivity and lack of retention.
  • Do not wear Lash Extensions to your eyeliner appointments, they must be removed prior to your visit a week before. You can reapply them 6 weeks after  your healing has commenced.
  • Any eyelash tinting or eyelash curling should be done at least 7 days before, or 4 weeks after the procedure.
  • As a safety precaution following the eyeliner procedure, we recommend that you have someone available to accompany you or drive you home. It’s not mandatory as you will have clear vision, we just like to take every precaution possible for your safety.

  • Be off OILS topically and internally for 6 weeks.
  • Please come with your eyebrows drawn on so we have a reference.
  • RETINAL, AHA, VITAMIN C SERUM, BROW GROWTH SERUMS will cause extra tenderness, bruising and bleeding during your procedure as these products enhance your blood flow to the brow area and skin sensitivity.
  • We recommend letting your brow hair grow in as much as possible, so we have more to work with in creating your new look.
  • We do not shave your brow hair off.
  • Tweezing, waxing or tinting should be done at least one week prior to the procedure; electrolysis no less than 14 days before. Do not resume any method of hair removal for at least 2 weeks after your work has healed.
  • Your work must be healed before you resume normal activity.
  • Avoid any sun exposure for 1 month prior to your procedure.
  • Be off OILS topically and internally for 6 weeks.
  • Consultation is required to confirm area is of optimal heal to be worked on.
  • DR’s NOTE of GOOD HEALTH is REQUIRED.
  • Bring photos of your previous breast if you have them or the areolas you desire. The more reference we have the better.
  • Wear a loose fitting shirt.
  • Be off OILS topically and internally for 6 weeks.
  • On the day have freshly washed hair/scalp shaved, with no conditioner.
  • No extreme sun exposure to the scalp 1 month prior.
  • Exfoliate daily 1 week prior to treatment. (baking soda works great)
  • Stop all topicals such as Rogaine, Minoxidil 6 weeks prior to your procedure as they are vascular dilators and will cause pain, migration and bleeding.  Oral medications are ok!
  • For hydration, we recommend Membrane, Microbalm, Aveeno, CeraVe, and Dermalogica.
  • Be off OILS topically and internally for 6 weeks.
  • Consultation is required to confirm area is of optimal heal.
  • Wear accessible, comfortable, loose clothing.
  • For hydration, we recommend Membrane, Microbalm, Aveeno, CeraVe, and Dermalogica.

Aftercare - Step 3

Do not use any over the counter antibiotic ointments (IE: Polysporin, neosporin, or bactroban) this will cause the area to become inflamed. We are putting pigment  in the skin, not trying to get infection out.

  • Please bring sunglasses, and a hat to protect your new work.
  • It is normal for your new work to change size, length, and colour.  Don’t worry, it will continue to change until it’s fully healed, this is why we require a 6 week follow up to assess the work.
  • While permanent cosmetic procedures are not overly stressful to the body, there may be some swelling or redness around the area.
  • We recommend taking it easy for the rest of the day after your procedure is complete.
  • We recommend not to travel for a minimum of 14 days after your procedure.
  • Having a bath is highly recommended as moisture in shower steam will damage the work.
  • No swimming, Hot Tubs, Saunas or Steam Rooms until the area is completely healed. Saltwater and chlorine will cause the pigments to fade or discolor.
  • Let any crust naturally fall off (usually day 7-14 days).  The longer the crust is on, the better the colour retention.  Picking will cause voids in the results and possible scarring.
  • Everyone’s healing response varies. Seniors or those with compromised systems on medication generally heal slower and may take up to 3-4 weeks to be fully healed.
  • When the area gets itchy (day 4 onward) tap with the back of your hand or clean finger.
  • Avoid sweating after the procedure for at least 14 days. Sweat is salt water and will fade the pigments prematurely, and push it out of the skin (we use salt in the removal process).
  • You must stay out of the sun, and be in the shade while you’re healing.
  • If you expose the new work to the sun it will permanently darken with hyper-pigmentation.
  • Ensure to wear a hat and sunglasses outdoors for 14 days minimum or until the area is fully healed.
  • Once the work is healed, always use an SPF 30 minimum. (Excluding the eyes.)

Do not apply make up a fingers width from the worked area until the crust layer has completely flaked off (10-14 days) and the procedure area has fully healed.

  • After the eyeliner procedure is healed, use only new mascara to inhibit irritation.
  • Do not reapply facial serums until the work is completed after any follow up.
  • Do not use any lash growth serums until your work is complete and fully healed after your final visit.
  • Wait until the work is fully healed before resuming Lash Extensions, Hair Services, Massages, Facials, etc.
  • Do not wax, thread, bleach or tint for 2 weeks after. These chemicals will cause a serious reaction.
  • Do not use eyelash curlers for 4 weeks and make sure you clean it with 70% alcohol or antibacterial soap for 30 seconds before use.
  • Sleeping slightly elevated helps to alleviate swelling.
  • We recommend sleeping face up, not on your side to prevent any creasing, cracking or colour loss. An airline pillow will help to cradle your head.
  • We will book your 6 week follow up after your appointment so we can assess the healed work. It takes 6 weeks for the skin to fully regenerate and translate the true colour.
  • A touch up is generally required 8 weeks later to darken or fill void, as not all work heals 100% in the first session.
  • Once you work is fully healed (generally 2 weeks) and all the crusting has fallen off, you can go back to life normally, exercising, showering etc.
  • Refrain from oils. Please don’t start using any topical oils or make up removers on the area and or taking oil supplements until your sessions are fully complete.
  • Do not use any acne products, anti aging or facial products including retinol, benzoyl peroxide, hydroxy acid, glycolic acid etc. These products will cause premature lightning or colour change.
  • To maintain the best quality of your work and longevity of your service, please make certain to wear a minimum of SPF 30 on all areas exposed to the sun.
