  • Alcohol and Caffeine: Avoid alcohol and caffeinated beverages for 24 hours before your procedure.

  • Eyebrow Care: Refrain from waxing or tinting your eyebrows for two weeks before your procedure.

  • Treatments: Do not undergo injectable treatments, fillers, or laser treatments around the brow area for four weeks before your procedure.

  • Skin Treatments: Avoid chemical peels or microdermabrasion for four weeks before your procedure.

  • Medications and Supplements: Refrain from taking blood-thinning medications or supplements for 24 hours before your procedure.

  • Skincare Products: Discontinue the use of certain skincare treatments (such as acne medications) at least six months before the procedure.

  • Growth Serums: Stop using eyelash or eyebrow growth serums at least six months before the procedure.

  • Sensitivity: Please note that you may experience increased sensitivity during your menstrual cycle.


  • Preventive Measures: Fever blisters can be a common side effect of lip tattooing. If you have a history of fever blisters, cold sores, shingles, or chicken pox, it is important to take preventive measures as recommended by your healthcare provider before and after the procedure.

  • Exfoliation: For the best color retention, exfoliate your lips during the week prior to the procedure using a soft toothbrush, a washcloth, or a wet paper towel. After exfoliating, apply Vaseline or a lip moisturizer.

  • Avoid Waxing and Bleaching: Do not wax above your lips or use any bleaching products within a week of the procedure.



  • Caffeine and alcohol – 48 hours prior

  • Blood-thinning substances – 24 hours prior 

  • Injectable treatments, certain filler, laser treatments, and chemical peels – 4 weeks prior




  • Avoid Touching: Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingers to prevent infection.

  • Ointment Application: Apply your aftercare ointment 2-3 times daily for a week. For oily skin types, apply 1-2 times daily for 3 days. ALWAYS use a clean cotton swab, NOT your fingertips.

  • Avoid Products: No soap, moisturizer, sunscreen, makeup, or tinting of lashes or brows.

  • Activity Restrictions: No sun tanning, yoga, golf, excessive sweating, hot baths, saunas, Jacuzzis, swimming in chlorine pools or the ocean, contact with animals, or gardening until the area is completely healed (7-10 days).

  • Healing Process: Do not rub or pick at the dry, flaky skin/scab while it is healing, as this may remove pigment along with the crusting tissue.

  • Avoid Certain Products: Avoid using products with strong acids or lightening agents on the procedure area (e.g., Glycolic, Lactic Acids). These can fade your pigment color.

  • Touch-Up Visits: Schedule touch-up visits between 4 and 8 weeks post-procedure. All Permanent Makeup procedures are a two-step process, and final results are determined after the touch-up application.


  • Initial Redness and Stinging: Redness and a slight stinging sensation are normal for the first few days.

  • Scabbing and Dark Appearance: Your eyebrows will start to form scabs and may look dark and thick. As the skin heals, the scabs will fall off in random pieces, leading to a patchy appearance throughout the week.

  • Flaking and Crusting: Flaking and crusting of the skin may occur.

  • Color Fading: The color will fade approximately 30% - 40% when the scabs fall off. This is completely normal. Do not be discouraged if the fading is more than you expected (initial session). The size of the brows will also reduce by 1–2mm.


Important Note: Failure to follow these instructions may result in pigment color loss.


Procedure Information: All permanent makeup procedures are a two-step process.


Maintenance: We suggest a yearly 'Color Refresher' to maintain the integrity of your procedure color.


  • Swelling and Dryness: Lips will feel swollen and very dry after your treatment. Apply the supplied aftercare ointment several times a day for at least 14 days post-treatment. Do not let lips become dry, as this may affect the healed color. If lips feel dry during the day, apply a liberal amount of ointment by tapping it on gently without rubbing.

  • Application Hygiene: Always use a clean Q-tip to apply ointment to the lips, not your fingers, to reduce the risk of infection. Sleep on an old pillowcase, as residual pigment may come off the lips for several days and can stain linens.

  • Flaking and Tenderness: Once the lips are no longer tender to the touch, they may become flaky, which is normal. Do not pick or scratch at them to avoid reducing pigment uptake.

  • Sun and Product Avoidance: Avoid the sun and tanning beds both before and after the procedure. Once lips are healed, use a sunblock. Avoid using products containing Glycolic or Lactic acids on the lips.

  • Water and Food Precautions: Avoid direct water pressure, pools, and other bodies of water until healed. Brush your teeth with water only for 72 hours post-treatment. You can resume wearing lipstick once lips are healed, but use a new lipstick after all lip treatments. Avoid oily, salty, acidic foods and alcohol while healing.

  • Possible Side Effects: Redness, swelling, tenderness, and dryness are common post-treatment side effects and will dissipate over time. Hyperpigmentation can occur without warning. Fever blisters are a known side effect of lip procedures. Consult your doctor or dentist for preventive medication to avoid an outbreak.

  • Healing Stages: Lips heal in three stages: too dark, too light, and just right, which takes about one month. Avoid friction on the lip area.

  • Retouch Schedule: Follow all pre- and post-procedure instructions. Schedule a lip retouch 30 to 45 days after the initial session to help with color retention.
