Recommended Pre-Treatment Advice and Procedures

1. Do not wear contact lenses during or immediately following an eyeliner procedure. Please remember to bring your eye-glasses.

2. If you have experienced cold sores or fever blisters on your lips in the past, you may wish to consult with your primary physician regarding Zovirax or Valtrex prior to a lip color procedure. A fever blister outbreak during the healing stage may cause loss of pigment or infection.

3. Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may swell slightly, or redden, it is advised not to make social plans for the same day. Lip liner may appear “crusty” for up to one week.

4. If unwanted hair is normally removed in the area to be treated, i.e.; tweezing or waxing, the hair removal should be done at least 24 hours prior to your procedure. Electrolysis should not be done within five days of the procedure. Do not resume any method of hair removal for a week after the procedure.

5. If eyelashes or eyebrows are normally dyed, do not have that procedure done within 48 hours of this procedure. Wait one week after the eyebrow or eyeliner procedure before dying lashes or brows.

6. If you are having the eyeliner procedure done, as a safety precaution, in case of watering or swelling, we recommend that you have someone available, or accompany you, who could drive you home if you so decide, or if it is necessary.

7. If you are having lip liner done and have had previous problems with cold sores, fever blisters, or mouth ulcers, the procedure is likely to re-activate the problem. Your Intradermal Cosmetic Technician can make recommendations to help prevent or minimize the outbreak.

8. We recommend allergy testing of pigment before the planned procedure.

9. Do not use aspirin or ibuprofen for 7-days prior to your procedure.
