Pre-Care Instructions

Thank you for choosing us!

Please make sure you read the following instructions to assure the best results for your microblading or permanent make up procedure:

 

1. It is very important to refrain from all alcohol, aspirin, or aspirin products, such as blood thinners.

2. Please, refrain from Ibuprofen and Aleve for 24 hours prior to your appointment.

The only product for aches and pain that will not make you bleed is Tylenol.

You can have two Tylenols prior to your appointment and it should not affect the procedure.

3. Please, refrain from Vitamin E and fish oil capsules for 7 days prior to your application.

ALL of these make you bleed excessively. Excessive bleeding during the procedure will negatively affect the longevity of your permanent or semi-permanent makeup application. In some cases, the application will need to be prematurely stopped.

 

4. Please, avoid energy drinks & coffee for up to 24 hours prior to your appointment.

Not having caffeine in your system will help you to relax much more easily, as well as help to relax the facial muscles in the areas we will be working on. 

5. Please, notify the studio if you might be pregnant/are pregnant, or nursing, since we cannot perform any procedures until you pass this phase to ensure safety and the best results as your hormones and skin will be out of balance and quite sensitive during this time.

6. Please, notify the studio if you have any of the following medical conditions:

  • Hemophilia (high risk- cannot stop bleeding)

  • Heart Conditions/Pace Maker/Defibrillator (No exceptions) (high risk)

  • Body runs hot (increased bleeding which prevents color deposit)
