Do not have coffee or alcohol 12hrs before procedure. They are stimulants and thin your blood. Having either coffee or alcohol prior will prevent optimuim absorption of the anesthetic, which will cause discomfort.
If you are on blood thinning medication, it is preferable where possible to take it after the procedure.
Depending on what you will be having done please remember to bring with what you currently use to colour your eyes, brows or lips. This will be helpful in determining a mutual understanding for colour choice and the density of application.
Permanent Makeup is long-lasting, but one can still wear fashionable make-up. Permanent Makeup simply builds the foundation for looking perfect without looking made-up. It is advised to request a look that resembles your day make to which you will then build on with make up for an evening look. Its permanent and you don’t want to wake up with evening makeup.
Permanent cosmetic procedures are a process and at least one follow-up to the initial procedure should be scheduled 4 to 6 weeks from the initial appointment. This allows adequate time for the skin to heal. Any sooner and you will experience heightened sensitivity during the procedure. Lip procedures require minimum six weeks as they are softer and more sensitive.
A touch up is the cherry on the top. It is usually takes 1hr to go over what was previously done to ensure longevity and to correct anything that needs to be corrected in shape or colour. You may now be used to the eyeliner or brows and would like them to be a little thicker or darker.
Often the tattooed color is not 100% even after the initial procedure as different sides of the face may heal differently. You may sleep predominantly on one side this side may appear lighter as the scab/flacking came off sooner. One side is always more sensitive which also may effect the density of colour that side or area.

No,I take pride in making you as comfortable as possible. Some people experience some discomfort while others nothing at all. This will vary according to each individual’s threshold. Using two topical aesthetics that have been medically developed for permanent makeup application makes procedures reasonably comfortable. Initially before the 2nd anaesthetics has been absorbed you can sometimes feeling a scratching/tickle sensation. You may experience tenderness post procedure once the anaesthetic has worn
Technically, permanent cosmetic procedures are considered permanent because the colour implanted into the skin cannot be washed off. However, as with any tattoo, fading can and often does occur, requiring periodic maintenance, colour re-enhancement or refreshing. Just like hair colour, furniture located near a window, or even house paint, the implanted colour will fade over time depending on your health, lifestyle, skin type and how well you care for your skin.
My permanent cosmetic procedures are performed using a delicate power pen. Your appointment includes a consent form with a medical overview and a detailed discussion regarding your expectations including design and colour. The numbing and application of the pigment follows. You are a part of the whole process during the procedure. Everything is explained to you with total appreciation that you have put your trust in me with your permanent cosmetics.
