Prior to Treatment
If you have had previous permanent makeup in the area you will need to schedule a consultation first before scheduling procedure.
Do NOT take Aspirin, Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 72 hrs prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
You cannot get microblading/nanostrokes or any permanent makeup procedure while pregnant or nursing.
Consult your doctor for any specific concerns such as recent surgery or
current medications, particularly blood thinners.
Do not work out the day of the procedure and you will need to avoid extreme exercise 72 hours - 1 week post treatment.
No Retin-A or retinol around the area for 2 weeks before and 4-6 weeks after.
NO TANNING at all for 4 weeks prior, or have sunburned face. Your appointment will be rescheduled. NO TANNING 4 weeks after procedure.
NO alcohol or caffeine on the day of the procedure.
NO waxing around the area 3 days prior to the procedure.
Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
Do not use any eyelash serums (Latisse) 2 weeks before your eyeliner procedure.
Refrain from wearing contact lenses during an eyeliner procedure.
Bring your sunglasses if you are having eyeliner done that day.
If you work out regularly (3-7 days a week), your eyebrows WILL fade very fast due to the production of salt/sweat. Appointments will not be moved earlier if you have premature fading due to lifestyle. They WILL appear more powdered or blurred under the skin as well. If you are not ok with this, then you should not have the procedure done.
If you are out in the sun a lot, have oily skin, use anti-aging creams, retinA/retinol products, acidic cleansers, natural elements, regular chemical peels, or exercise frequently, your permanent makeup WILL fade prematurely. The better you take care of the treated area and follow the provided aftercare, the longer it will last.
Aquarelle Info to know prior to booking:
If you have ever had a fever blister or cold sore, you will almost certainly break out with fever blisters on your lips after any lip procedure. To help prevent this from occurring, it is absolutely essential that you obtain a prescription for an anti-viral medication and take as prescribed normally taken days before or after depending on your doctor prescribes it. Failure to follow this recommendation may result in a breakout of fever blisters, which may last up to six weeks
SKIN TYPES 4-6
This procedure is not recommended for darker skin types because of the chance of hyperpigmentation (darkening) or hypo pigmentation (loss of pigment) to the lips. You can call to schedule consultation or send a picture of your lips to to check if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
You will receive your aftercare instructions the day of your appointment.
Please keep in mind you can not swim in any body of water for 2 weeks post treatment. This treatment is not recommended before going on vacation.
I would recommended buying Aquaphor, for use after your treatment.
