Please request one of these anti-viral medications from your Physician:

Refrain from any consumption of alcohol, Vitamin E, Multi-Vitamins, Aspirin (any non-vital blood thinners) products for at least 2 days prior to procedure to prevent excessive bleeding. This is important in order to avoid increased sensitivity.

Chemical peels, Glycolic, Retin-A and other aggressive skin care will affect the longevity of permanent makeup. Use caution to avoid the tattooed area with these types of products to prevent fading.

Permanent Makeup procedure

A topical anesthetic is used to the procedure area and left to numb while we go through the consultation forms and evaluate the most suitable colors, taking into consideration your skin tone and personality. The anesthetic is removed after 20- 30 min. Permanent makeup is artistically designed and drawn on your face with makeup pencil as the template to follow during your procedure. Once the shape and color have been agreed the pigment is then implanted into the skin with a disposable needle. During the procedure more topical anesthetic will be applied to minimize discomfort. After the procedure, the pigment color will be darker and the area treated may be slight swollen, which is a normal result from the procedure. The color will lighten and the swelling will go down. A detailed after-care instruction will be provided so you may take home and follow.
