• Do not work out 48 hours before procedure as the body heat expands the pores. It is recommended not to sweat (heavily) for the first 10 days after the procedure. Sweat is salt and can prematurely fade the treated area.
  • Avoid sun and tanning on your face two weeks prior to procedure. If you are sun burnt in the area, your appointment will need to be rescheduled and you deposit will be forfeited.
  • No swimming until the area is completely healed, salt water/chlorine can cause the pigments to fade or change in color. Please plan your appointment accordingly if you plan to be in the sun or water.
  • NO alcohol or caffeine 48 hours before procedure to minimize swelling and oozing. (Yes, there is caffeine in decaf coffee and tea!).
  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure. These will thin the blood and will cause more bleeding.
  • Avoid Fish Oil, Prenatal Vitamins, Nutritional Shakes (Shakeology, etc), “Hair, Skin, Nail” supplements two weeks prior to procedure.
  • Discontinue Retin-A, Chemical and Laser Peels, microdermabrasion, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), and any chemical exfoliant or “brightening” skincare at least 6 weeks prior (Once your brows have healed, you must avoid use of these products on forehead area procedure to prevent premature fading).
  • Botox and filler on the forehead, temple, and eye area should be avoided 2 weeks – 1 month prior to procedure for those who do not regularly receive injectables. It is recommended to wait 2 weeks – 1 month after your Touch-Up appointment to resume receiving botox and fillers in the brow/eye area.
  • Avoid the following herbs and spices 48 hours before procedure: ginger, cinnamon, garlic, black and cayenne pepper.
  • Your makeup will be wiped off during the procedure. Please bring your makeup bag to touch up for before and after photos.
  • Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
  • In ADDITION to the list ABOVE, please make sure to exfoliate your lips one week prior to your appointment. Keep them hydrated and moisturized everyday.
  • If you are prone to cold sores, you will not be a good candidate for Lip Blush. Getting this service may cause an outbreak.
