pre treatment advice

Microblading & Permanent Makeup

Do not take Aspirin, Paracetamol or Ibuprofen for 1-2 days before your procedure.

Do not discontinue any prescribed medication without consulting your Doctor.

Do not drink Alcohol for 1-2 days prior to your procedure.

Clients considering Botox or dermal fillers are advised to do so at least 2-4 weeks prior to their Permanent Makeup procedure, or wait until all Permanent Makeup sessions have been completed.

Eyebrows

Eyebrow tinting, waxing, threading or Elecrolysis should be perfomed at least one week prior to your appointment.  

It is helpful if you normally wear eyebrow pencil or powder to do so on the day of your consultation appointment as this will enable me to see your preferred shape.


Eyeliner

If you normally wear contact lenses, please ensure these have been removed 1 day prior to your appointment and that you have your glasses with you on the day as you will not be able to wear your contact lenses for at least 1 day after the procedure.

Eyelash extensions should be removed professionally at least 1 week before your procedure.

Use of lash serums must be discontinued for at least 8 weeks prior to treatment. Please inform me upon booking if you are using a lash serum. This is very important for the safety of your procedure.

If you suffer with Occular Herpes, herpes medication (Acyclovir) is available with a prescription from your GP and will control the risk of outbreaks almost completely.  This is essential and for your safety. 

Lips

If you have a history of cold sores (Herpes Simplex) and wish to have a lip enhancement, I advise you to use anti-herpes medication such as Zovirax (Acyclovir ointment) 5 times per day  for one week prior and one week post procedure, to reduce the risk of an outbreak by 50%.  This can be purchased over the counter at most chemists.

 Oral herpes medication (Acyclovir) is available with a prescription from your GP and will control the risk of outbreaks almost completely.  

Permanent Makeup does not cause cold sores but if you are a carrier of the virus and have had outbreaks in the past, the trauma of the infusion process may trigger an outbreak.

IPL and laser procedures around the mouth should be performed at least 2 weeks before your lip procedure.

Waxing and bleaching treatments around the mouth should be performed at least 2 weeks before your lip procedure.

Electrolysis procedures around the mouth should be performed at least 2 weeks before your lip procedure.

Dermal filler procedures in the lips should be performed at least 4 weeks before your lip procedure.

Please avoid having BotoxⓇ or Fillers and having facials, peels or AHA’s at least 4 weeks prior to all treatments.  

Please avoid using sun beds or using fake tan for 2 weeks before or after your eyebrow treatments.  

If you use Retinol Creams/Anti Ageing Creams, please discontinue use at least 2 weeks prior to each treatment.

Unfortunately if you use steroid creams on/near the eyebrow area or if you have had facial surgery in the past 3 months or are pregnant/breast feeding then you will not be able to have the treatments.  If you have already booked your appointment, please contact me for a full refund at least 48 hours prior to the treatment date to avoid a wasted appointment charge.
