Lips Permanent Makeup

Before

  • If you are requesting a lip procedure, it is very important to consult with us regarding: cold sores, shingles, Herpes simplex. If you have EVER had any of the listed conditions, it is very important that you are pre-treated with an antiviral. this prescription can be provided by your physician.

 

  •  For your safety, we recommend you to take antiviral -Valtrex or Zovirax- 1 day before, and 3 tablets after your lips procedure, to strengthen your immune system, and avoid an episode of herpes or cold-sore (you can consult with your doctor).

After

  • Keep your lips moist, using Vitamin E oil for 2 weeks following.

  • Do not let the area dry out completely, this can cause scabbing and cracking on the skin surface

  • Do not expose tattooed area to sun or tanning beds without using sun block. This can cause pre-mature fading.

  • Do not eat citrus fruits and juices, greasy, salty, oily or spicy foods until your lips have completely healed.

  • While eating, do not constantly wipe your lips with a napkin or keep licking your lips as this will impede the healing process

  • Be careful when brushing your teeth. Toothpaste may pull the pigment out of the lip vermilion. Also, do not bleach your teeth while your lips are healing.

Tattoo Removal

Before

  • Keep the area clean and open to the air, do not cover it.

  • It is important to keep the treated area dry until you are done scabbing.

  • No bathing, swimming, saunas, hot tubs, tanning, or intense exercise after your procedure.

  • No lotions, ointments, makeup, etc. until completely healed and the scab has fallen off on its own. It may take 2 weeks or longer for this to occur.

  • Do not pick at the scab or may result on scarring.

After

  • Once all the scabs fall off naturally, apply one drop of Vitamin E Oil 4 to 6 times throughout the day, every other day, for at least 4 weeks, or until your next session. DO NOT start applying the Vitamin E oil until all the scabs fall off; keep the area as dry as possible during scabbing.
