Pre-Procedure Advice

no makeup

Permanent cosmetics are an enhancement to your natural features. Droplets of pigment are implanted into the dermal layer of skin. Yes, it is a tattooing process.

  1. Two visits are critical to all permanent cosmetic procedures!!! If you are not committed to 2 visits, Carmella and Kristina cannot perform the procedure.
  2. Brows and eyes must heal for 4 weeks between visits; camo, scars, and lips take 6 weeks to heal.
  3. Consultations with Carmella cost $100 that goes towards your procedure, though there is no cost to book a consultation with Kristina. There is a fee for each procedure visit.
  4. All implements used in all procedures are NEW and STERILE. Extreme care is taken for your sanitation and safety. We follow all OSHA requirements.
  5. All used supplies are disposed of after each procedure.
  6. Please advise us if you are using Retin-A, Renova, Accutane, or Latisse. As well as any other medication.
  7. Please let us know if you are allergic to topical products.
  8. Contact lens wearers must bring glasses for post eyeliner procedure. Contacts CAN NOT be worn during the procedure.
  9. Topical numbing agents are used for client comfort so that procedures are tolerable and as pain-free as possible.
  10. Your makeup will be consulted and drawn on before any pigment is placed into the skin.
  11. It is advised not to make any social plans for the same day and the day following the procedure.
  12. Procedure areas will appear very vivid in color for the first few days.
  13. Eyebrows, eyeliner, and lips will appear crusty after the first week. The pigment will be MUCH lighter after the crusting stage. The color will return during the 4 to 6 weeks of healing.
  14. A scratch test is available for possible allergies and can be done at any time; however, it is NOT required by law.

    • Eyebrows – TWO VISITS ARE CRITICAL in achieving a natural brow enhancement. Do not wax brows before your visit.
    • Eyeliner – TWO VISITS ARE CRITICAL in achieving a natural lash-enhancement eyeliner. Eyeliner is as individual and unique as those who wear it. Results vary with each individual. Up to 4 visits can be necessary to achieve heavy eyeliner. There is an additional fee for each visit.
    • Lips – TWO VISITS ARE CRITICAL and 6 weeks of healing before the final color and result is achieved. Clients who are prone to fever to fever blisters (even once in your life) must pre-medicate up to 3 days prior to procedure and up to 7 days post. The herpes virus will likely be activated by the lip enhancement procedure so it is highly advisable to pre-medicate. Contact your physician for medication such as: Zovirax, Valtrex, or Famvir. Ask for 1 gram taken orally for a 10 day supply. Abreva (OTC) medication is also advisable.

* A $100 deposit is required for all new clients and must be paid at the time of booking.
