Pretreatment Advice

what you need to know

Permanent cosmetic treatments can require multiple treatment sessions. For best results, you may need  to return for at least one touch up treatment between four and eight weeks after the initial treatment.

Be prepared for the colour to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the treatment.  This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals. This process can take up to 10 days.

Advice for all permanent cosmetic treatments:

Since delicate skin or sensitive area may be swollen or red, it is advised that you should consider this before making any social plans for the same day

Please wear your normal natural make up to the salon on the day of the treatment if you feel more comfortable to have them on - make up on the area to be treated will be removed upon your arrival as part of the preparation for the session.

A sensitivity patch test is offered - details can be found in the Terms and Conditions, however waiver is available on the day of the treatment.

Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or coumadin for 2 days before and 2 days after the treatment. However, you must not discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor.

Do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment.

Eyebrow treatments:

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

Threading is not a problem to the procedure but the specialist would prefer seeing the natural hair growth

Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks prior to the treatment.

Eye treatments:

Any eyelash tinting or eyelash perming should be carried out no sooner than 1 week before or 2 weeks after the treatment.

You may have some swelling. As a safety precaution, we recommend that you have someone available to drive you home.

Do not wear contact lenses for or immediately following the treatment. Remember to bring your glasses. You may resume wearing your contact lenses as soon as your eyes feel comfortable (normally 24 hours after the treatment)

Do not wear false lashes or lash extension at all as the procedure will dislocate/ remove them. We will not accept you for the treatment if you have them on for the appointment.

Lip contour:

Please bring with you a lining pencil or the lipstick  that can have the colour tint you would like

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 outbreak

Alternatively, obtaining herpes medication - e.g. Zovirax from your local chemist and use one week before and one week after your treatment. This can help minimise an outbreak.

Permanent Cosmetic treatments do not cause cold sores, however, if you carry the virus, it lays dormant in the body and can be aroused by the treatment.

Lip wax or bleaching treatments should not be undertaken for at least a two-week period preceding your permanent cosmetic treatment.

Having Juvederm or other lips fillers prior to the booked session needs clearance from  the Juvederm technician and a minimum 4 weeks gap before our lips treatment or 8 weeks after.

Beauty spots:

Natural beauty spots are not perfectly round. We therefore advice you not to have a perfectly round spot, as this may not look natural.

Scalp Micropigmentation

It is ideal to  have your hair washed the day before if not the morning of the appointment

Guys: before your session moisturise your scalp at least twice daily to get it in great condition.

If you are extremely sensitive to pain, seek medical advice prior to procedure.

You may bring a clean hat or scarf to loosely cover your head after your treatment, if you so desire, but not recommended.

Avoid alcohol prior to the treatment and try eating Vitamin K foods to thicken the blood.

Ladies: Hair Piece - Please do not wear a hair piece at least 5-7 days prior to your scheduled procedure.  As wearing a hair piece may limit oxygen flow to the scalp 

No hair dye/bleach within 21 days before and after a session.

Guys: Please do not use a razor on your scalp within 24 hours of the scheduled procedure.

Refrain from sun tanning to avoid burning and peeling of the skin.
