PMU PRE-TREATMENT & AFTERCARE

PRE-TREATMENT

  • If possible, please try to avoid blood thinning medication 72 hours before your appointment. This includes Ibuprofen, Aspirin, Fish Oil tablets and some green teas. (Consult your doctor first)

  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before your appointment and coffee on the day of your treatment.

  • Avoid any chemical peels, use of Retin A or AHA skincare products 4 weeks prior to your appointment.

  • Avoid sun exposure / sun beds for 2 weeks before your treatment.

  • Do not get brows waxed or tinted for 2 weeks prior to your appointment

IF YOU HAVE HAD PREVIOUS TATTOOING

  • If you have previous tattooing from another technician, please inform Nicole before booking. A photo will be required and detail such as - How many times you've had it done? When was your last treatment? How much colour is left, if any?

  • A consultation is usually recommended before booking in your treatment. We will need to assess the current tattoo to decide if it will be possible to successfully cover and refresh the old style. In some cases, removal may be advised if the tattoo is too dark and saturated to work on.

AFTERCARE

Good aftercare is the key to long-lasting beautiful brows. After your treatment, you will receive an aftercare pack and full aftercare instructions. These are just a few main points to remember:

  • No make up to be worn directly on the treated area for 10 days.

  • Avoid getting the area wet

  • Avoid swimming, sweating, tanning and saunas for at least 14 days.

The colour will be significantly darker right after the treatment. The true healed colour of the treatment can take a few weeks to show through the healing layers of skin.
