Pre Permanent Makeup Care & Tips

Important Pre-Permanent Makeup Information


If you are scheduled for eyeliner, do not wear contact lenses or any eye makeup to the appointment. If you use eyelash growth serum or wear eyelash extensions please discontinue use 4 weeks prior to the appointment.

If you desire permanent makeup on your LIPS and are prone to fever blisters, cold sores, or Herpes on the lips, we recommend that you take Valtrex daily for three days before, the day of, and the day after your procedure. Check doses with your doctor. If you do not have access to Valtrex, you can purchase over-the-counter Abreva® at any drug store.

You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
