Everything you need to know before your appointment

Note: All health standards are followed here in the studio.
- Pregnant or breastfeeding (wait 3 months after stopping breastfeeding).
- Hemophilia or heart condition : Must consult a physician prior to the appointment.
- Accutane/ Retin-A – Wait 6 months after finishing the acne medication before tattooing the
skin. If not, the altered skin condition will not heal well after the procedure.
- High blood pressure : Prone to more bleeding and may result in poor colour retention.

- The usage of Retinol and Vitamin A should be discontinue one month prior to the procedure.
- It is recommended to eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the procedure.
- No excessive alcohol or caffeine consumption 24 hours before your procedure. Alcohol and caffeine can thin the blood, which causes the skin to be hypersensitive, and bleed/bruise more easily.
- Avoid sun tanning one week prior to the procedure.
- Avoid blood thinning medications for 24 hours before the procedure. This includes Aspirin, Niacin (Vitamin B3), Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen, fish oils tablets. Please consult your physician if this is an issue.
- Eyelash extensions should be removed 3 days prior to the procedure.
- No eyelash perm and/or tinting at least 3 days prior.
- Discontinue Retin-A one week prior to the procedure.
- No Botox around the eye area 2 weeks prior.
- Eyelash growth serums like Latisse bring extra circulation to the lash line area which results in more growth of hair/lashes. This can cause the skin to be hypersensitive and bleed easily. It is recommended to discontinue the use of these products at least 3-6 months before your treatment.
- Do not wear any eye makeup on the day of your appointment.
- If you wear contact lenses, please wear glasses on the day of your appointment.
Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
- Splash your eyes with water and wash off any pigment residue immediately after the procedure. Pat dry gently with a clean tissue.
- Wash the skin around the eyes twice a day (morning & night) using a gentle, unscented soap (Cetaphil or baby shampoo). Use your fingertips to cleanse gently and pat dry with a clean tissue.
- No ointment needed for the lash line enhancement.
- Scabs will take about 7 -10 days to peel off. Do not pick at the scabs or peel them off prematurely.
- Swelling and redness is normal for the first few days.
- Slight stinging sensation in the first few days is also normal.
- The color will fade approximately 30-50% lighter when the scabs fall off. This is completely normal. Do not feel discouraged if the fading is more than you expected.
- To achieve the perfect eyeliner, we need to see how your skin accepts the initial application and a touch-up appointment is where we will perfect the shape and color (6 weeks after).
- No eye makeup is allowed until the scabs completely fall off.
- Avoid sweaty exercises such as hot saunas, hot yoga, and swimming until the scabbing comes off.
- The eyeliner will start to form scabs and they might look dark and thick. As the skin heals, the scabs will fall off in random pieces and might look patchy.
- Flaking and crusting on the tattoo area may occur.
- Avoid pulling off the scabs that are dried on the lashes.
- When you try to pull off the scabs that are hanging on your lashes, ensure the scabs are soft enough to slide off from the lashes. Use a mascara brush to help remove the scabs.
- Swelling occurs up to 3 days after the procedure, especially in the morning.
- Exercising the eyes can help reduce swelling and puffiness. Try blinking actively for 2 minutes in the morning.
- To relieve swelling, you can ice the area with soft gel ice packs.
