Before Booking Your Appointment
Please read ALL of the PRE- and POST-appointment instructions BEFORE booking your appointment to make sure that you will be able to meet requirements. Our schedule is very full and there will be a $$$ charge if we have to reschedule due to unknown ineligibility, lack of preparation for appointments, or if there is less than ## hours notice of cancellation. No-shows will lose their non-refundable deposit and need to pay for the appointment in full to rebook.
Please follow these instructions to prepare BEFORE your Permanent Makeup appointment:
**72 HOURS BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT: NO CAFFEINE, ALCOHOL, ASPIRIN, TYLENOL, IBUPROFEN. This is not a suggestion. These substances can thin the blood and skin and can affect the overall result of your procedure. We will have to reschedule if you have not avoided these prior to your service.
1 WEEK BEFORE: DISCONTINUE USE of all non-prescription vitamins and supplements. Fish Oil and Turmeric especially need to be avoided.
2 WEEKS BEFORE: DISCONTINUE USE of all Anti-Aging products, Retinols, AHAs, BHAs, Acne Creams, Oral or Topical Acne Medications, and Lightening Acids.
2 WEEKS BEFORE: DISCONTINUE USE of GrandeLash, Latisse, Revitalash, or any other growth serum for 2 weeks before and after your Lash Liner or Eyeliner appointment, as this affects the lash glands. Discontinue GrandeBrow for 2 weeks before a brow procedure.
3-6 WEEKS BEFORE: NO WAXING OR TWEEZING your brows! We need to see your full hair growth so that we may shape your brows as natural to your face as possible.
WAIT at least 6 weeks after any Chemical or Laser Peels.
What to Expect
If desired, you may come to your appointment with how you normally make up your brows, lips, or liner so that I may see what you are used to.
We will spend the first portion of the appointment going over history and consulting on the desired procedure. For Brows, we will map out your shape based on your face frame, bone structure, and facial features in a way that best complements your natural beauty. Then we will make any adjustments together until you are happy with the shape and all questions are answered before beginning the procedure.
Due to safety and sanitation, No children or guests are permitted.
There is a 72-hour cancellation policy - you must cancel your appointment at least 72 hours in advance. Once you cancel, your deposit will be lost.
After Your Appointment
Expect some swelling and redness.
Do not expect your cosmetic tattoo to heal perfectly after the first session. This is a 2-step process and will require a perfecting touch-up appointment (6-8+ weeks) later.
Immediately after your procedure the area will be VERY DARK and defined and will fade in intensity by 30-50% during the first 2 weeks of healing.
Your cosmetic tattoo will take up to 6 weeks to fully heal so please be patient. During the first 2 weeks when flaking comes off, the color may seem faint, patchy, or uneven because a fresh layer of skin is healing over the tattooed area. Color will continue to change daily as the deeper layers of skin heal and become more translucent.
We will make any adjustments needed at your follow-up appointment. Nothing can be done prior to that appointment, to make sure the skin heals without any complications.
WAIT to do Botox or Filler at least 4 weeks AFTER your PMU procedure. In order to create symmetry in the brows, its best for the face to be in it’s most natural state. The healing after your procedure can also shorten the longevity of your injections. If you cannot wait until after for injections, they need to be done at least 4 weeks prior.
