PRECARE - Prepare for your appointment for best results!

A few conditions are contra-indicated for micro-pigmentation & micro-needling, while most simply require special preparation or consideration. For best results, please be candid when completing your Confidential Health Survey at the beginning of your first appointment.

You should discuss your intention to receive micro-pigmentation/micro-needling with your doctor prior to booking a service if you are: pregnant or nursing, have epilepsy, take accutane, just had botox or fillers, are diabetic, have a heart condition, have received an organ transplant or have an auto-immune disease.
Only a medical professional knowledgable with your particular situation can determine if it is safe for you to receive micro-pigmentation/micro-needling.

It is not recommended to receive micro-pigmentation/micro-needling if you have a tendency towards keloids or scarring, or acute hyper-pigmentation, either naturally or as a side effect of some medications (i.e. Doxycycline).

To properly prepare for your micro-pigmentation/micro-needling procedure, please limit use of blood-thinning agents (caffeine, ibuprofen, alcohol, etc.) for 48 hours prior to procedure, unless they are prescription. Excessive bleeding will adversely affect your treatment results.

It is recommended that you take Arnica and/or Bromelain for several days both prior to and after your procedure. These supplements have been shown to help reduce swelling & speed healing without acting as blood thinners.

Finally, please be aware, women are more pain-sensitive during menses, so plan accordingly.




Permanent Cosmetics & Micro|Nano Needling (CIT) Preparation:

Please avoid:

retinol & other chemical skin treatments or procedures for at least a week prior to appointment
tanning and extreme sun exposure for at least 2 weeks prior
botox & other injections for at least 8 weeks prior

If having eyebrows done please stop waxing, tweezing or threading your eyebrows immediately. The most naturally attractive eyebrow tattoo designs work with your natural hair growth pattern. Once your chosen design is complete, we will remove any hairs that do not support the design.

If having eyeliner done and you have lash extensions, you must have them removed prior to receiving your treatment.

If having lips done and you have ever had a cold sore, you must take Valtrex or another anti-viral for at least 3 days before & 3 days after your procedure.

Scar Revision, SMP, Camouflage, Areola Restoration and PMU Correction/Removal Preparation:

Please avoid chemical skin/hair treatments and/or injections at treatment site & tanning or extreme sun exposure for at least 2 weeks prior to first procedure appointment.

There may be other treatment-specific pre-care instructions for your Para-Medical micro-pigmentation/micro-needling procedure; these will be provided at your complementary consult.
