PRE-CARE FOR ALL MICROBLADING AND PERMANENT MAKEUP PROCEDURES ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO LIMIT BLEEDING AND SKIN SENSITIVITIES DURING THE SERVICE.  eXCESSIVE BLEEDING CAN CAUSE DILUTION OF THE PIGMENT AND LEAD TO POOR HEALING AND RESULTS.

** IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THESE CONDITIONS PLEASE CONTACT US PRIOR TO BOOKING TO SEE IF YOU ARE A CANDIDATE.  A DOCTORS NOTE MAY BE REQUIRED IN SOME CASES

  • Pregnant or Breastfeeding

  • Diabetic

  • Viral infections and/or diseases

  • Pacemaker or heart conditions

  • Tendency of keloids scarring

  • Seborrheic dermatitis

  • Skin irritations or psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)

  • Sick (cold, flu, etc.)

  • Had Botox in the past 2 months

  • Used Accutane in the past year

  • Taken Doxycycline in the past 6 months

  • Allergies to anesthetic (lidocaine) or epinephrine

  • Extremely oily or problematic skin

  • Cancer or chemotherapy

  • Auto-immune diseases

LIP BLUSH TATTOO PRE-CARE:

  • If you have any history of cold sores/ fever blisters/ herpes simplex, you must contact your physician to obtain and take the proper prescription medication to prevent such outbreaks for at least 2 days before and after the procedure.

  • NO alcohol or caffeine 48 hours before procedure.

  • Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure.

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure. These medications will thin out the blood and therefore cause more bleeding during the procedure.

  • Avoid Fish Oil, Prenatal Vitamins, Nutritional Shakes, or biotin supplements 48 hours prior to procedure.

  • Discontinue Retin-A, Chemical and Laser Peels, microdermabrasions, and Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) at least 4 weeks before the procedure (and avoid on eyebrow area after procedure to prevent premature fading).

  • Must wait a minimum of 6 weeks after lip fillers. It is possible to have poor color retention in lips that have had injections as well as color migration.

  • Must wait 6 months after a lip implant.

  • Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

** There are no implied or written guarantees by BEAUTY MARK if you do not follow these pre-care instructions

​​LIP BLUSH TATTOO POST-CARE:​

  • Temporary side effects from permanent makeup include but are not limited to: redness, swelling, puffiness, bruising, dry patches, tenderness.

  • You should expect to lose approximately 50% of the initial color during the healing process. We have selected the optimal pigments for you with this in mind, knowing the delicate nature of the skin on the lip.

CLEANSING & IMMEDIATE AFTERCARE

  • 24 HOURS AFTER PROCEDURE: Complete your antiviral medication to prevent an outbreak.

  • Apply cold compress or ice for the first 2-24 hours to reduce swelling. (which must be protected with a clean wet barrier film of paper toweling, towel or cloth) 

  • For the first 3-4 days, avoid soap or cleansing products. Wash only with water wipes and pat dry with a clean, dry cloth.

  • Avoid drinking and eating overly spicy, acidic, or temperature hot things for the first 7 days.

  • Use water wipes to compress each morning, midday and at night. Each time after cleaning and several times a day apply a thin layer of the ointment provided to your lips with a Q-tip or clean hands with light touch

  • Avoid sweating (such as from vigorous exercise) for 24 hours.

UP TO 10-14 DAYS 

  • Continue applying a tiny amount of ointment to keep the crust formation on lips a little soft for better retention.

  • DO NOT PICK, PEEL, OR ITCH THE LIPS. It is extremely important to allow these skin cells to shed on their own naturally. Pulling on the skin or on a scab will warp and pull the ink from the tattoo.for at least one week post-procedure or until healing is complete

  • Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the affected area

  • Do not scrub or pick at treated areas.

  • Do not excessively stretch lips by smiling big or puckering lips with smoking while they are healing

  • Do not use peroxide or Neosporin on treated areas.

  • Do not expose area to direct sun or to tanning beds.

  • Avoid exposing the area excessive moisture or humidity, such as:

    • facials, swimming, whirlpools (hot tubs), saunas, steam rooms, and extremely hot showers.

  • Avoid Retin-A, moisturizers, glycolic acids, exfoliants and anti-aging products at all times (not just during healing) on all tattooed areas. These can cause pigments to fade and lighten prematurely.

  • Avoid tanning beds, sun, chlorine spas and pools, soap and chemicals (including skin cleansers, makeup removers, alpha hydroxyl creams)

LONG TERM CARE

  •  Use a lip balm with SPF or vaseline to protect the lips from sun. Sun exposure will fade your permanent makeup and tanning beds are extremely harsh on permanent makeup.

  • If you are planning for a chemical peel, laser procedure or any type of work by a professional around your permanent makeup site, always inform the practitioner.

  • The use of Retin-A/Tretinoin or any other rapid skin exfoliation products used regularly will cause premature fading.  Any type of "acids" or chemical peels used regularly will also fade the tattoo prematurely.

  • The time you may consider coming in for a color enhancement  is when you feel the need to add more color to your treated area.  Rather than picking up the makeup pencil or lipstick, pick up the phone to schedule your maintenance appointment!

 

** ALL SEMI-PERMANENT COSMETIC PROCEDURES ARE MULTI-SESSION PROCESSES ** 

An initial application is incomplete until after a follow-up appointment, which must be scheduled approximately 6-8 weeks after your initial appointment. There is no additional charge for the first touch-up appointment after your initial application as long as it is performed up to 8 weeks of the initial application. See our policies for further details.

** Following the proper post-care is necessary to achieve the best results. Mature age, poor diet, stress, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, age, general health, sleep/fatigue can affect your healing process.
