Pre-Care and Post-Care
Any type of permanent makeup is NOT recommended for any clients who are or have:
- Pregnant or nursing
- Diabetic (consult your doctor)
- Chemotherapy (consult your doctor)
- Viral infections and/or diseases
- Pacemaker or major heart problems
- Organ transplant
- Skin irritations or psoriasis/eczema near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, ect.)
- Sick (cold, flu, etc.)
- Botox in the past 2 weeks
- Do not work out the day of the procedure
- Do not tan or have a sunburned face
- Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to the treatment
- Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, or Ibuprofen 24 hours before the procedure
- No alcohol or caffeine for 2 days before the procedure
- No waxing or tinting for 3 days before the procedure; electrolysis no less than 5 days before. Do not resume any method of hair removal for at least 2 weeks
- Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle
- No water, cleansers, creams, makeup or any other products on the treated area for 10 days
- Do not rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally fall off. Picking can cause scarring, and your results will not last as long
- Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 3-4 weeks after the procedure
- Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days
- Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days
- No facials, Botox, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks
- Please note that eyebrows will appear darker and bolder due to natural scabbing and healing for the first 10 days. This is very common for all semi and permanent cosmetic procedures. Results vary per individual. Oily skin and dark skin tones may experience more fading and produce more of a textured powder effect as the skin’s natural oils and sebum may spread the pigment more.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR NEW LASH EXTENSIONS
- Do not wet lashes for at least 24 hours after application.
- Use an oil-free eye makeup remover
- Try not to run water directly on your lashes
- Do not rub, pick or pull your eyes
- Do not use mascara
- Avoid using an eyelash curler
- Avoid exposure to heat, steam, sauna and friction
- Receiving chemical treatments, such as eyelash tinting or perming
- Receiving irritating eye area treatments, such as strong chemical peels or skin re-surfacing procedures, eyebrow waxing or laser treatments
- Never attempt to remove lash extensions on your own, it is best to make an appointment and have them removed safely by your lash technician.
- Your new lashes will last between 2 to 4 weeks depending on your skincare routine and your own natural lash life cycle. To maintain the full look of your lashes, it will require you to maintain refills every 2-3 weeks.
Eyelash extensions may not be suitable for people who:
- Have pre-existing eyelid or eye conditions such as blepharitis and ocular rosacea
- Those who do not want to follow aftercare instructions
- Have a condition called trichotillomania, which is compulsive pulling or twisting of hair or eyelashes
- Are in chlorinated water many times a week
- Cannot control rubbing their eyes
TAKING CARE OF YOUR FRESHLY LIFTED & TINTED LASHES
- Do not apply any oil-based products to the lashes for the first 24 hours.
- Lash lift and tint should not be performed on clients who suffer from chronic dry eye, conjunctivitis, damaged lashes or lashes with gaps (this treatment may make the gaps more noticeable), active eye infections of any kind, trichotillomania (habitual pulling out of lashes), recent chemo treatments (you will need to wait at least a year from your last treatment). When in doubt, always consult with your physician.
POST TREATMENT CARE
Skin may be red for a few days post-treatment. This is perfectly normal. It may feel like you have a sunburn. Typically, your skin will feel back to normal approximately 3-4 days after treatment. You will experience some skin peeling. Those looking to treat deep wrinkles, stretch marks, severe sun damage or scarring may need multiple micro-needling treatments. To ensure the safety of your skin, treatments are recommended four weeks apart. This time period allows your body to repair and rejuvenate before the next treatment.
