***All Permanent Cosmetic services require a prior consult via phone or in person, before booking***
-To ensure best results, please make sure your health is in good condition-
NO EXERCISE : 2 DAYS PRIOR – 2 WEEKS AFTER.
Exercise increases the heart rate and expands pores and produces sweat. All effects promote a loss of color retention. So for best results please avoid 1-2 days before the procedure, and for 12-14 days following your procedure.
NO TANNING, NO SCRUBBING: 2 MONTHS
Please do not tan for one month prior and for one month following the procedure. Tanning is detrimental to the procedure. No exfoliants or hard scrubbing to the serviced area for 2 months, because even though the skin is healed on the outside, it is still healing on the inside. Do not disturb the healing process.
NO DIRTY WORK & NO TOUCHING: 2 WEEKS
Lawn mowing, gardening, etc should wait until outer healing is complete!
Keep your HANDS OFF!!
Touching your tattoo could introduce bacteria into the open area which could cause an infection.
NO MAKEUP, LOTIONS, SOAP, WATER : 2 WEEKS NO CHEATING
It could result in an infection and loss of color.
SLEEP ELEVATED or PROPPED UP : 1 WEEK
If you sleep on the treated area, you will lose color and also stain your sheets. So prevention is important. You may find that a travel neck pillow comes in quite handy after permanent makeup.
NO NORMAL SHOWERING & SWIMMING : 2 WEEKS
Please understand that chlorinated and salt water will discolor and/or totally remove your pigment. You should do your best to take a bath with lukewarm water NOT HOT WATER, the steam of the hot water will promote color loss.
I have found it easiest to take a bath and avoid your face area completely.
However, if a shower is best suited for your needs, please avoid letting the stream of the shower head aim directly at your face.
After your bath, wash the lower part of your face as normal, avoiding your forehead or serviced areas.
Use a damp cotton round or wash cloth and carefully wet your forehead or serviced areas.
Put face wash on the round and carefully remove dirt and oil.
It is best to face directly down at the sink so the water/facewash doesn’t run down onto your tattoo.
NEVER EVER EVER PICK, PEEL, RUB, SCRATCH, OR PULL ON SKIN THAT IS FLAKING OFF.
YOU SHOULD ALLOW IT TO HEAL, AND FALL OFF NATURALLY.
