FOR EYEBROWS, EYELINER. LIP LINER AND/OR FULL LIP
All permanent cosmetic procedures are multi-session processes. You are required to come back for at least 1 follow up visit before it can e determined that your work is complete. Touch-up visits are scheduled from four to eight-week intervals.
Be prepared for the color intensity of your procedure to be significantly larger, sharper, brighter or darker than what is expected for the final outcome. It will take time for this transition, based on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates.
While these injected tones may initially simulate the exact color and tone desired, it will not always remain a perfect match. Injected tones are constant, while your own skin tones will vary depending on exposure to cold, heat, sun, and circulatory changes. For example, if you tan your skin and had a scar camouflaged, your surrounding skin will be darker in appearance than the treated area.
Since delicate skin or sensitive areas man swell slightly or redden, some clients feel it best not to make any social plans for a day or two following any procedure. Wear your normal makeup and bring your lip or brow pencils to the office on the day of the procedure.
Any tweezing or waxing should be done at least 48 hours prior to the procedure; electrolysis no less than five days before. Do not resume any method of hair removal for at least two weeks. Any eyelash or eyebrow thinking or eyelash curling should be done no sooner than 48 hours before or two weeks after the procedure. (We cannot inject pigment into the upper eyeliner area while you are wearing eyelash extensions. Eyelash extensions must be removed prior to the procedure.)
DO NOT WEAR CONTACT LENSES DURING OR IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE EYELINER PROCEDURE. REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR EYE GLASSES.
You may resume wearing your contact lenses as soon as your eyes return to their pre-treated condition.
If you are having lip procedures and have any history of cold sores/fever blisters/herpes simplex, you will be required to contact your physician to obtain the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks. Many physicians prescribe 12 capsules of 500 mg Valtrex. These can be taken two times a day, two days before micro-pigmentation and four days after, or as your physician prescribes.
