Pre-Procedure

At Fabulously Flawless our goal is to provide you with an exceptional experience. We place emphasis on producing a pleasing result for you and you alone. Of equal importance is treating you with the highest standard of client care and excellence in all aspects of the procedure process. I am bringing the highest level of training and the most state of the art equipment to your procedure(s).

In that spirit, and in order to ensure that every client has adequate time to have their individual needs addressed, I have instituted certain policies and pre-procedure requirements. For your health and welfare and to ensure a successful outcome with your new Permanent Makeup, please read the following.

PRE-PROCDURAL ADVICE:

To ensure best results, make sure your health is in good condition. Get enough rest and eat well prior to your procedures.

1 WEEK BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT:

Stop taking the following supplements, herbs, and foods, as they contribute to thinning of the blood and may affect anesthetic efficiency:
Vitamin E, Vitamin B6, Omega 3’s, Gingko Biloba, John’s Wort, Ginger, Cinnamon, Licorice, Cayenne Pepper, Curry, Oregano, Peppermint, Garlic, Turmeric, and Paprika.

72 HOURS BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE:
  • Do not wax, as the pores will open up and ink can enter these areas.
24 HOURS BEFORE & AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT:
  • Avoid alcohol, aspirin, caffeine, and exercise
  • Speak with your Permanent Cosmetics Professional AND Physician if you are on a prescription for blood thinners PRIOR to scheduling an appointment.
ON THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT:
  • Wash your hair in the morning, as you will need to avoid the shower for several days.
  • Feel free to arrive with your makeup on if you would like me to see how you customarily wear your daytime makeup. You may also bring any photographic examples, makeup colors, etc., to use in the selection process.
Permanent Cosmetics Pre-Procedure
EYEBROW PRE-PROCEDURE:

72 HOURS BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE:

Do not tint or wax your eyebrows

12 MONTHS BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE:

In order to receive any type of permanent cosmetics or microblading, you must have not taken any Tretinoin or any of its generic equivalents.

EYELINER PRE-PROCEDURE:

If you are an insulin dependent diabetic, or have glaucoma and use prescription eye drops for this condition, or have any other serious medical condition that you are being treated for, you MUST inform me in advance of this condition. It may be fine to proceed with your appointment but sometimes we may require a release from your treating physician.

1 WEEK BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE:

Do not use growth stimulants such as Latisse, RapidLash, or RevitaLash for at least one week prior to and one week after your eyeliner procedure.

ON THE DAY OF YOUR PROCEDURE:

  • If you have a tendency to swell you may take a Benedryl or another over-the-counter antihistamine 1-2 hours before your appointment.
  • Remember to bring your glasses! You may resume wearing your contact lenses as soon as your eyes return to their pretreated condition.
  • Bring someone with you who can drive you home or make other plans so that you do not have to drive as your eyes may swell and driving may be difficult.
LIP PRE-PROCEDURE:

Lip tattoos are meant to enhance lips, not create actual fullness. This procedure is designed to define lips, not to create volume or puffiness. The more natural the color that is chosen, the more frequent your touch-ups are going to be. We suggest tattooing your lips one to two shades darker or brighter depending on your natural skin tone. Permanent Cosmetics utilized “pigment”…. not “ink”. Thus, pigment is thicker, so it gives that more natural powdery finish. It does exfoliate out of your skin after 12 to 18 months. And since you eat and drink with your lips, it’s going to happen faster. Sometimes it is not a good idea for darker skin tones because they can hyperpigment. The needle abrades the skin, so when they heal, a lot more pigment is produced, and their lips could actually get darker.

PRIOR TO YOUR PROCEDURE:

If you are having a lip procedure performed and have ever had a cold sore or “fever blister” (herpes simplex), you will need to be on prescription medication to prevent an outbreak in response to the “trauma” to the lip tissue. This can be obtained by calling your doctor or your dentist. Begin the medication the day before your procedure.

Prepare ahead of time, as I cannot make exceptions to this rule. Yes, you could lie on your pre-procedure consent form about never having had an outbreak before and go through with the procedure without being on an anti-viral med but I can assure you that you will not be happy in the long run if you decide to go that route. Rest assured that an outbreak of cold sores WILL cause you to lose your lip color.

ON THE DAY OF YOUR PROCEDURE:

  • If you have a tendency to swell you may take a Benadryl or another over-the-counter antihistamine 1-2 hours before your appointment.
  • A Dental Block is required for all Permanent Cosmetic Lip procedures on the day of your treatment prior to your arrival for your appointment. We work with several dentists that will quickly and easily perform this service for you. Ask your Permanent Cosmetics Professional for more details about Dental Blocks.
EYESHADOW PRE-PROCEDURE:

If you are an insulin dependent diabetic, or have glaucoma and use prescription eye drops for this condition, or have any other serious medical condition that you are being treated for, you must inform me in advance of this condition. It may be fine to proceed with your appointment but sometimes we may require a release from your treating physician.

I WEEK BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE:

Do not use growth stimulants such as Latisse, RapidLash, or RevitaLash for at least one week prior to and one week after your eyeliner procedure.

ON THE DAY OF YOUR PROCEDURE:

  • If you have a tendency to swell you may take a Benadryl or another over-the-counter antihistamine 1-2 hours before your appointment.
  • Remember to bring your glasses! You may resume wearing your contact lenses as soon as your eyes return to their pretreated condition.
  • Bring someone with you who can drive you home or make other plans so that you do not have to drive as your eyes may swell and driving may be difficult.

All clients are required to read and sign our General Consent From prior to any and all procedures.

AREOLA PARAMEDICAL TATTOOING RESTORATION PRE-PROCEDURE:

Areola simulation or scar camouflage can be performed when your physician approves it. We openly communicate with our client’s surgeons and we follow all recommendations made by them. Scar camouflage can usually be performed as soon as 6 months after surgery, but you should first ask your physician. Once you have been cleared for areola tattooing, you can schedule your consultation with Stacey. During your consultation, she will discuss your concerns and recommend a treatment plan that she feels will provide optimum results. She will also provide you with specific guidelines to prepare for your procedure.
