Points to remember

You must be 18 or over. This is the legal minimum age requirement.

Make arrangements so you have a few hours free to be treated. Follow your after-care instructions carefully. Consult your doctor beforehand if you need to do so.

Give yourself some time out for any darkening, swelling and redness to disappear. Don’t book your treatment too close to a special or important event.

How should I prepare for a treatment?

Stop taking any blood-thinning products 72 hours before your treatment (e.g. aspirin, alcohol, fish oils) unless prescribed by your medical practitioner.

Allow a few days break from shaping or tinting your lashes or eyebrows.

Have a light meal or snack beforehand, but do not drink any coffee or alcohol.

You may drink anti-inflammatory medication before your appointment if you wish. This may help with pain and swelling.

Allow at least 2-3 hours for an initial procedure.

Don’t book a treatment too close to an important event.

What might prevent me from having a Permanent Makeup treatment?

If you are pregnant or a nursing mother, have Epilepsy, or have a viral infection or disease.

Please also consult your doctor first if you have:


An organ transplant

Or have had Chemotherapy treatment

An allergy, (e.g. to nickel)

A skin condition, irritation or Psoriasis near the treatment area (rash, sunburn, acne etc.)

Have a cold Sores.  Lip clients must take anti-virus medication prior to any lip procedure. Please consult your doctor for a prescription.

Have a cold, the flu, or another recent general illness

Had a Botox treatment in the past 2 months.

Are there any other circumstances that may prevent me from having a treatment?

Other contraindications* that suggest or indicate a particular treatment should not be done within a certain time frame are:

Botox or fillers: Have your Permanent Makeup procedure done at least 2 weeks before or 4 weeks after

Eyelift, or eyelid surgery such as blepharoplasty: Wait for ≈ 3 months

Eyelash extensions: Must be done AFTER Permanent Makeup, not before. Or remove them before your procedure.

Lip clients with Cold Sores must take anti-virus medication prior to any lip procedure. Please consult your doctor for a prescription.

Shingles (varicella): Wait several months before having a Permanent Makeup procedure.

Any previous allergic reactions (e.g. to topical anaesthetics, or an allergy to nickel)

*We advise you to consult your doctor before any treatment to discuss your concerns.

Do you have any further advice on how best I can prepare for a treatment?

Before your treatment,  gentle exfoliate and moisturize your lips. For extremely dry lips, you can apply Bepanthen for 2-3 days prior to your treatment.

Dry cracked lips not suitable for tattooing have a tendency of bleeding. Treatments may be refused on the day of the appointment if the lips are not suitable for tattooing.

Here is a Not To Do List!

No alcohol or coffee pre treatment

No aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Omega oils for at least 48 hours pre treatment.

No tanning or facial sunburn

No waxing or tinting for at least 48 hours pre treatment

No wearing of lash extensions pre, during or post treatment. Do not use a lash curler. Please wait until your Eye Liner is completely healed. Buy new mascara.

Pre-Care Instructions for Scalp Micropigmentation:

• Wash your scalp with a non-abrasive, gentle shampoo the week prior to your procedure. If experiencing breakouts on your scalp please see a dermatologist or appropriate medical doctor to resolve this issue prior to your procedure.
• After washing the scalp, moisturize the skin with some form of skin moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated. Doing so will allow the ink to be properly absorbed.
• Refrain from sun tanning for a week to avoid burning and peeling of the skin.
• If you are extremely sensitive to pain, mention before treatment for possible options or seek medical advice prior to procedure.
• You may bring a clean hat or scarf to loosely cover your head after the treatment, if so desired.
• Please do not wear a hair piece at least 10-14 days prior to your scheduled procedure. As wearing a hair piece may limit oxygen flow to the scalp and the ink may not be fully absorbed into the follicle.
• Please do not use a razor on your scalp within 24 hours of the scheduled procedure. It is critical that we see all native hair in order to properly blend the hair follicles.
• Do not work out 24 hours before procedure.
• NO alcohol or caffeine 24 hours before procedure (Yes, there is caffeine in decaf coffee and tea!)
• Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure.
• Avoid power shakes and power greens, fish oil, and “Hair, Skin and Nail” supplements 24 hours prior to procedure.
• Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
