Micropigmentation Pre-Procedure Information & Care
Your first procedure is incomplete until after a follow-up appointment, which must be scheduled approximately 4-8 weeks after your initial appointment.
While your skin heals, be prepared for your color intensity of your procedure to be significantly larger, bolder, brighter, or darker than what is expected for the final outcome. This is a normal and expected result of the application and healing process. The healing process will take couple days to complete, depending on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates and new skin regrows to take its place.Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may swell slightly or redden, some clients feel it best not to make social plans for a day or two following any procedure. Wear your normal makeup and bring your lip or brow pencils with you the day of the procedure.
Eyebrows: Avoid tweezing, waxing, electrolysis, and coloring your brows for two weeks prior to the procedure if possible. This will allow your practitioner the most flexibility to achieve optimal results.
Eyeliner: Do not wear your contact lenses during eyeliner application.Remember to bring your glasses. You may resume wearing your contact lenses as soon as your eyes return to their pretreated condition. Do not use growth stimulants such as Latisse®, RapidLash®, or RevitaLash® for at least one week prior to and one week after your eyeliner procedure.
Lips: If you have any history of cold sores/fever/blisters/ herpes simplex, please take the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks for at least 4 days before and after the procedure. Many physicians prescribe 12 capsules of 500mg Valtrex. Follow your physician’s instructions.
Two or three applications may be required to achieve the desired results. It is not uncommon to lose up to 70% of the color on the first application.
