Pre Treatment Advice


What to do before your Permanent Makeup Appointment 

All procedures

You may experience some post-procedural swelling and redness, for this reason we advise you not to make social plans on the day of your procedure.

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

Do not discontinue any prescribed medication without consulting your Doctor.

Do not drink Alcohol for 24 hours prior to your procedure.

Clients considering Botox or dermal fillers are advised to have their Permanent Makeup procedure done at least 4 weeks prior to their Permanent Makeup procedure, or wait until all Permanent Makeup sessions have been completed and are healed.


Eyebrow Procedures

Eyebrow tinting, waxing, threading or Elecrolysis should be perfumed 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 appointment as this will enable Sara to see your preferred shape.


Eyeliner Procedures

If you normally wear contact lenses, please ensure these have been removed 25 hours 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 24 hours after the procedure.

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

If you suffer with Occular Herpes, please inform us of this when making your appointment so that I can advise you on any pre-procedure care you may need to seek.


Lip Procedures

If you have a history of cold sores (Heproes Simplex) and wish to have a lip enhancement, we 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 tablets) are available with a prescription from your G.P 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 no less than 2 weeks before your lip procedure.

IWaxing and bleaching treatments around the mouth should be performed no less than 2 weeks before your lip procedure.

Electrolysis procedures around the mouth should be performed no less than 2 weeks before your lip procedure.

Dermal filler procedures in the lips should be performed no less than 2 weeks before your lip procedure.
