Pre-Procedure Advice for SPMU
Semi-permanent makeup treatments require at least 2-3 sessions to complete. You will have your initial session and then will be required to come back 4-6 weeks later for your ‘top-up’ session. From here we can discuss whether you will need a third session for best results.
Please note the colour will be significantly darker immediately after the treatment and will remain like this for 4-6 weeks after the treatment. Once healed, they will lighten up to 30/40% to the desired shade.
Pre-treatment advice for all semi-permanent procedures:
Any blood thinning medication should be avoided for at least 48 hours before the treatment. Please discuss this with your doctor prior to the procedure. We also advise avoiding excessive alcohol and caffeine within this time.
As the treated area will be red, swollen, and possibly bruised (depending on skin type) it is advised not to make social events for the same day as your procedure.
We will only go ahead with the treatment if you have had a negative patch test after your consultation. We also do not allow any family or friends into the treatment area with you so please do not bring them along on the day.
Please ensure if you are going to tint and wax your brows; this is done at least 48 hours prior to your procedure.
Lip liner, blush, and full colour procedure:
If you have a history of cold sores, we advise you to apply a topical cream/medication bought from any pharmacy. This should be used for 7 days prior and 7 days after the procedure to minimise an outbreak. Please note even with this, you still put yourself at risk of an outbreak as cold sores lay dormant in the body.
Please do not wear contact lenses before, during, or immediately after the procedure. Please ensure to bring your glasses with you if you wear them.
Eyelash tinting/perming will need to be done at least 1 week before the procedure.
You may experience some swelling to the eyes so we advise you have someone available to drive you home after the procedure.
