Cosmetic Tattooing

Still you… but a more defined you…

EYEBROWS

Pre-procedure

  • It is recommended to eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the procedure
  • Please do not wear any makeup (at least on and around your eyebrow area)
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hrs before your appointment. Alcohol can thin the blood, which can cause the skin to be hypersensitive and bleed easily.
  • Avoid blood thinning medications for 72 hrs before your appointment. This includes ibuprofen, aspirin and fish oil tablets. Please consult your doctor if this is an issue.
  • Make sure your face is not sunburnt
  • Do not get brows waxed or tinted for 2 weeks prior to your appointment
  • If considering Botox, it is best to have your brow tattooing done first. If having Botox before your treatment, please do this at least 2 weeks before your appointment
  • If you have been taking acne medications such as Accutane or Retin-A within the last year you have an altered skin condition that will not heal well after the procedure. It’s very important that you wait a year before tattooing the skin. Retinol and Vitamin A are very similar and should be discontinued to use a month prior to the procedure.

EYELINER

Pre-Procedure:

  • It is recommended to eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the procedure.
  • Please don’t wear any makeup (at least around your eye area).
  • Avoid alcohol for 24hrs before your appointment. Alcohol can thin the blood, which can cause the skin to be hypersensitive, and bleed/ bruise easily.
  • Avoid blood thinning medications for 72hrs before your appointment. This includes ibuprofen, aspirin and fish oil tablets. Please consult your doctor if this is an issue.
  • Eyelash extensions have to be removed at least 3 days before the procedure.
  • Eyelash growth serums like Latisse bring extra circulation to the area which results in more growth of hair/lashes. This can cause the skin in that area to be hypersensitive and bleed easily. It is recommended to discontinue the use of these products at least 3-6 months before your treatment.
  • You may like to take an antihistamine tablet before your procedure. This can help reduce the swelling and watery eyes during the treatment. Consult with your pharmacist or doctor first.
  • Contact lenses need to be removed for this procedure and should not be replaced for a minimum of two hours after. It is advised to bring a pair of glasses for the drive home or arrange transport.

LIPS

Pre-Procedure:

  • It is recommended to eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the procedure.
  • Please do not wear any lipstick to your appointment.
  • Avoid alcohol for 24hrs before your appointment. Alcohol can thin the blood, which can cause the skin to be hypersensitive, and bleed/ bruise easily.
  • Avoid blood thinning medications for 72hrs before your appointment. This includes ibuprofen, aspirin and fish oil tablets. Please consult your doctor if this is an issue.
  • If you have a history of cold sores, please take either Zovirax or a cold sore preventative 5-7 days prior to your appointment.
  • You may like to take an antihistamine tablet before your procedure. This can help reduce the swelling. Consult with your pharmacist or doctor first. Aciclovir 800mg 3 days prior and 3 days post procedure is an even better option, but you will need a script from your GP.
  • If considering lip fillers, it would be best to have your lips tattooed first and your fillers injected after. If you implant colour too soon you will be implanting colour above the natural line. When the lips shrink and return to normal size, the lip line will be off.
