Permanenant Makeup Prep and Aftercare
Write me an in detail description on how to prepare for a permanent makeup appointment, including details in how to care for your skin and what to expect at your appointment.
Preparation for Permanent Makeup:
Before your permanent makeup appointment, it is important to take care of your skin to ensure the best possible results. Here are some steps you can take to prepare:
Avoid using exfoliants, such as glycolic acid or retinol, for at least one week before your appointment. These products can thin the skin and make it more prone to irritation.
Avoid waxing, electrolysis, and other hair removal methods for at least one week before your appointment. These procedures can also thin the skin and make it more sensitive.
Avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two weeks before your appointment. Sunburnt or tanned skin can make the color of the permanent makeup appear uneven.
Avoid drinking alcohol the night before your appointment, as it can thin the blood and increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.
Remove all makeup and skincare products from the area to be treated before your appointment.
During the Appointment:
You will be asked to fill out a consent form and provide medical history.
The artist will discuss the design and color options with you, and a custom pigment color will be mixed for your specific skin tone.
The area will be cleaned and a numbing cream may be applied to minimize discomfort.
The artist will then use a digital machine to deposit pigment into the skin. This process may cause some mild discomfort, but can be managed with the numbing cream and/or ice packs.
The artist will apply a thin layer of ointment to the treated area and give you aftercare instructions.
Avoid wetting the treated area for at least three days after your appointment.
Avoid sweating and swimming for at least one week after your appointment.
Avoid exposing the treated area to the sun or using tanning beds for at least two weeks after your appointment.
Avoid using exfoliants or harsh skincare products on the treated area for at least one week after your appointment.
Avoid picking or scratching the treated area to prevent fading or scarring.
Follow the artist's specific aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and the best possible results.
It is important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure the best possible outcome for your permanent makeup. If you have any questions or concerns about the aftercare process, don't hesitate to contact your artist
