Pre procedure advice

Permanent cosmetic procedures will normally require multiple treatment sessions. For best results, clients will be required to return for at least one retouch procedure, usually between 1-3 months after the initial procedure. 

Be prepared for the colour to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals. This process can take up to ten days. 

Advice for all permanent cosmetic procedures: 

  • Alcohol, Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Coumadin must be avoided at least 48 hours prior to procedure. 
  • Do not discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor. 
  • Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, it is advised not to make social plans for the same day. 
  • Please wear your normal makeup to the salon on the day of the procedure. 
  • The treatment will only go ahead with the outcome of a negative patch test. 
  • We do not allow any family or friends in the treatment room with you. 

Eyebrow Procedures: 

      • Any waxing should be performed at least 48 hours before the procedure: Electrolysis no less than 5 days before the procedure. 

Eyeliner Procedures: 

  • Any eyelash tinting or eyelash perming should be carried out no sooner than 1 week before. 
  • Do not wear contact lenses during or immediately following the procedure. Remember to bring your glasses. 
  • You may have some swelling, as a safety precaution, we recommend that you have someone available to drive you home. 

Lip liner/Colour 

  • If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex), we advise you to contact your doctor to obtain the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks. Alternatively, obtain herpes medication for example Zovirax from your local chemist and use one week before and one week after your procedure. This can help minimise an outbreak. 
  • Permanent cosmetic procedures do not cause cold sores, however if you carry the virus, it lays dormant in the body and can be stimulated by the procedure. 

Beauty Spots 

      • We advise not to have a perfectly round spot, as this is not natural looking.
