In order to make your treatment as comfortable as possible, please do the following before arriving for your appointment:
Get EMLA (topical anaesthetic cream) from the chemist and apply a thick layer of the cream (must look white) at least 1-2 hours before, place a small piece of cling film or get a medical sticker from the chemist, cover over each eyebrow and do not remove. We will remove it when you get here. Plasters do not work as they do not seal the area completely. When you remove the film, the EMLA dry out and will stop working. We are also able to apply a topical anaesthetic to the area for about 20 mins before we start working should you not be able to apply beforehand, however this does cut the time down a bit. Applying the EMLA yourself before you come in, is just an extra precaution that is highly recommended.
2-5 days after any permanent makeup procedure, the treatment area may reveal the following symptoms:
– Eyelashes sticking together (Lash Line Enhancement)
Please be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly darker and sharper immediately after the treatment. The colour will fade gradually as the skin heals, it’s normal to experience some pigment loss, this is why we have the touch up in place. The process is considered to be incomplete until the touch up has been done. You might require more than one touch up, based on how well your skin accepts the pigment.
Do not wash or scrub over the area – AREA MUST NOT COME INTO CONTACT WITH WATER!!!
Keep the area as dry as possible – no swimming, steam baths, saunas etc. for 2 weeks post procedure
No intense exercise or sweating for 3 days post procedure
Do not rub, scratch or pick the area/s. This can cause an infection and affect the healing process
Do not apply any makeup removers, creams, ointments or lotions to the area
Please do not wear eye makeup for 3 days post procedure (Lash Line Enhancement)
Apply Vaseline three times a day to the area, with a clean cotton bud (Lash Line Enhancement)
To keep your permanent makeup looking fabulous, it is recommended that you have a touch up every 6-24 months.
