“Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.” Alexander Graham Bell
Are you excited for your upcoming permanent makeup treatment? It's natural to feel excited, but it's also essential to follow pre-treatment advice provided by your technician.
Why is this important?
Following the advised instructions can ensure that your skin is best prepared for the treatment, giving you the best possible results. Neglecting the pre-treatment advice can increase the risk of complications and lower the effectiveness of the treatment. 🙅♀️
General recommendations for all SPMU treatments.
Schedule a consultation with a qualified and experienced permanent makeup artist. Discuss your expectations, concerns, and any relevant medical history.
Research: Research the credentials and reviews of the practitioner. Ensure they are licensed and trained in micropigmentation.
Provide a comprehensive medical history, including any allergies, medications, or pre-existing conditions. This information can impact the choice of pigments and the overall procedure.
Discontinue the use of professional quality retinoids and vitamin A derivatives at least one month before the procedure. These substances can affect skin sensitivity and healing.
No Chemical Peels: Avoid hash chemical peels, laser treatments, and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapies for at least two weeks before micropigmentation.
Avoid Blood Thinners 24 hours prior the treatment: If you are taking any NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) or blood thinners or medications that may increase bleeding, consult with your healthcare provider and the micropigmentation artist to determine if any adjustments are necessary.
Some examples of blood thinning medicines are : Aspirin, Ibuprofen (Motrin IB, Advil, others) and Naproxen Sodium (Aleve)
Avoid Alcohol and Caffeine 24 hours prior the treatment : Limit alcohol and caffeine intake a day or two before the procedure, as these substances can contribute to increased bleeding and sensitivity.
