If you’ve ever hired a professional painter, they will tell you that “it’s all in the prep”. Professional painters know that they get the best results when they spend extra time sanding, filling holes, making sure edges are smooth and applying the right primer. Well, permanent cosmetics is very similar. You will get much better results when you properly prep.
It all starts with a good canvas! The skin to be treated must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated. Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure:
Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may swell slightly or redden, some clients feel it is best not to make any social plans for a day or two following any procedure. It is always best to avoid these procedures within months prior to important life events such as weddings. Procedures may take longer than expected to be complete under some circumstances.
Wear your normal makeup and bring your lip color or brow pencils to the studio on the day of the procedure.
