What should I AVOID before my permanent makeup appointment?

Updated: Jul 9, 2021

Before booking an appointment with me, please be sure you can avoid any and all of these things below:

  • No Botox 3 week prior to appointment

  • No chemical peels 6 weeks before or after

  • No Retinols/Retin-A or other anti-aging/acne creams, or serums containing acids as this will cause quicker fading. If you take Vitamin A everyday then you have to be off of it for 6 weeks before you can get the procedure and stay off until 6 weeks after touch up. Accutane must be off 6 months-year

  • Discontinue use of AHA (chemical exfoliation) skin care products close to the area to be tattooed at least one week prior to your procedure

  • No laser or electrolysis on or around the treatment area one week prior to procedure

  • Do not have any chemical peels, dermabrasions, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatments which will cause faster skin call rejuvenating and cause skin irritation 3-4 weeks before procedure

  • Do not work our or sweat heavily the day of the procedure or 7-10 days after

  • Do not tan or have sunburned face the day of

  • Do not take any blood thinners 48 hours before

  • No waxing or tinting 3 days before

  • No alcohol or caffeinated drinks 24 hours before

  • Smoking before procedure can cause excess bleeding, and may lead to slow healing of wounds
