Pre-Treatment Advice

Permanent cosmetic treatments normally require multiple treatment sessions.  For best results you will be required to return for at least one retouch appointment between 4 and 6 weeks after the initial treatment. We will advise you before we commence your initial treatment what will be required for your chosen treatment.

Be prepared for the colour intensity directly after your treatment to be significantly sharper and darker immediately.  This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals.

All treatments:

  • Delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, be prepared for this post treatment
  • A sensitivity patch test must be performed at least 24 hours before your treatment
  • Do not take aspirin, ibruprofen or coumadin for 2 days before the treatment
  • Do not drink alcohol the night before, or the day of your treatment

Eyebrows treatments:

  • Any waxing required must be done at least 48 hours before your treatment, electrolosis no less than 5 days before your treatment
  • Eyebrow waxing should not be performed for at least 2 weeks before your treatment

Eyeliner treatments:

  • Any eyelash tinting or eyelash perming should be carried out no sooner that one week before or two weeks after the treatment
  • You may experience some swelling after the treatment.  As a safety precaution we recommend that you have someone available to drive you home
  • Do not wear contact lenses during or immediately following your treatment.  Remember to bring your glasses if necessary.  You may resume wearing your contact lenses as soon as your eyes feel comfortable, typically 24 hours after your treatment

Lip treatments:

  • If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex)you will very likely develop cold sores as part of your healing.  To potentially avoid this, or lessen the effects we advise you contact your doctor to obtain prescription medicine to prevent such outbreaks.  Alternatively purchase Zovirax or similar and use one week before and one week after your treatment, this can potentially help minimise any outbreak
  • Permanent cosmetics 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 two weeks after your lip treatment
