💋Come to your appointment prepared:💋
The procedure should involve very minimal pin-point bleeding. Therefore, during your procedure you want to avoid any excessive bleeding, which can drastically effect your ability to numb and the overall results. Therefore DO not drink alcohol or caffeine the day you are to have your procedure. Do not take any blood thinning medications (unless prescribed by a doctor for medial reasons) one week before your appointment (aka: Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Ibuprofen, etc)
No tanning/excessive sun exposure 2 weeks before procedure (and 2 weeks after).
No Lip Filler/treatments 3 weeks before procedure (or 4 weeks after)
Plan your procedure with your schedule/vacations/events! DO NOT schedule when you have an incoming event that conflicts with healing. You will need 5-7 days heal. Expect an additional “perfecting” touch-up 6 weeks after the first appointment.
Please eat before the procedure, since you want normal blood sugar levels for any tattooing procedure. You will not feel like eating after (And you have to wait 3 hours for any food)
You will want to start a lip scrub once a day for 3 days before your procedure so that your lips are prepped and don’t have a rough texture, which will prevent proper pigment saturation and a poor healed result. Use the morning of your appointment. Do not over scrub to the point that you have raw or compromised skin.
You may buy a lip scrub from any local drug store or make a sugar lip scrub at home (google sugar lip scrub) in order to exfoliate off dead layers of skin.
Use moisturiser often on you lips in the days prior to the procedure to maintain smooth texture.
⚠️⚠️⚠️VERY IMPORTANT: ⚠️⚠️⚠️
If you have a history of cold sores you’ll need to start taking an anti-viral prescription (Valacyclovir, Denavir (penciclovir), Valtrex, Virex or acyclovir (Zovirax)), the day BEFORE your proposed procedure and also after the procedure.
Cold sore outbreaks are often triggered by stress or trauma to the lips and skin. Therefore if you are a carrier, lip blush will likely cause an outbreak if you do not take an anti-viral medication prior. Your appointment WILL be cancelled if you have had a history of cold sores and do not follow this instruction (with cancellation fees). This is because cold sores will effect the healing/results and can even lead to scarring. So please do not skip this step, you will be happy you didn’t and have better results.
If you are nervous, consider bringing headphones and music. Numbing will be used during the whole procedure.

The following conditions (indicated with blue) do not prevent you from getting permanent makeup, but should be considered when deciding if it is right for you.
Cirrhosis of the Liver: Susceptible to infection
Scar tissue: Scars can be tattooed over, however be aware that scar tissue can prevent proper healing; pigment may not take to the skin at all. This can happens if you’ve had microblading or permanent makeup in the past.
Platelet Disorders- Causes more bleeding to occur, and therefore lower pigment retention.
Moles/raised areas in or around the area: Pigment will not be put into moles or anything raised but you can be tattooed around them
Thyroid medications: Potential for faster fading and need for more touch-ups
Auto Immune Disorder of any kind (MS, RA, Lupus etc): Due to the medicines to treat these disorders, pigment will not retain well
Anemia: Will require more touch-ups
Tanning: May alter color over time
Taking certain medications can effect your skin and the way it heals. Taking a lot of different medications at once will also make it harder to predict how well the permanent makeup will heal on you (no its not the same as a regular tattoo).
The following medications will prevent proper pigment retention and if you take any of these regularly you should not get permanent makeup:
Time spent in the sun and overall health play a factor in fading/healing.
