Pre Procedure Advice

  • For best results, clients will be required to return for at least one touch up procedure between 6 and 12 weeks after the initial procedure; this touch up is included in the price.

  • In the initial procedure we always due as natural as possible, this is to allow the client to get used to the new shape and colour. Once the pigment is in place it will last a long time so it is important for the client to be happy.

  • Be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly darker and sharper immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals. This process can take up to ten days.

  • Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or get red, it is advised not to make social plans for the same day.

  • Please wear your normal makeup to the salon on the day of the procedure.

  • Do not take aspirin, Ibuprofen or Coumadin for 2 days before and 2 days after the procedure.

  • If you have allergy to metals (nickel or Iron Oxide) a patch test for pigments and needles must be done.

  • No waxing in the area should be performed on the area with less that 1 week to the procedure day. 

  • Electrolysis no less than five days before the procedure.

  • Tinting should be done 1 week prior treatment or 4 weeks post treatment

  • Do not discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor.

  • Do not drink alcohol or caffeine 48hrs before your treatment.

  • Do not smoke on the day of your treatment as this may cause the pigment to bleed out, it also causes swelling and bruising

  • A patch test must be performed before treatments.

  • ​Don't use mascara the day of your appointment (eye procedures) 

  • Don't wear contact lenses (eye procedures) 

  • All eyelash extensions must be removed before the treatment (eye procedures) 

Lip Procedures

  • If you have a history of cold sores (herpes simplex), we advise you to contact your doctor to obtain the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks.

  • Alternatively, obtain herpes medication for example Zovirax from your local chemist and use one week before and one week after your procedure. This can help minimise an outbreak.

  • Permanent cosmetic procedures do not cause cold sores, however if you carry the virus, it lays dormant in the body and can be aroused by the procedure.

  • Lip wax or bleaching treatments should not be undertaken for at least a two-week period preceding your permanent cosmetic procedure.



If cosmetic surgery has been carried out within the last five years in the area the procedure is to be carried out a letter from your surgeon must be produced before the procedure can take place.
