This is everything you need to know about booking your permanent makeup appointment for life’s BIG and little moments.
Timing is key
Planning for your appointment is critical. You’ve finally decided to go ahead and get your new permanent eyebrows or eyeliner (YAY!) and you’re looking at your favourite artists booking site wondering when you should book your appointment.
Timing really is key – booking the first spot available isn’t always the best plan! Here are some factors you need to consider when booking your treatment.
Planning for a BIG event
Many women who contact us want their permanent makeup done prior to a big event, such as a wedding or vacation, and even having a baby!! This is exciting, however, it takes some pre-planning. Each treatment takes a minimum of two appointments to be deemed ‘complete’. The first appointment is laying the foundation. We design your new brows or eyeliner and implant the pigment. The second session happens 6-8 weeks later and that is when we make any modifications to the shape, size or colour and ‘perfect’ or finish the treatment.
The skin on the surface may look healed after 7-10 days but it takes a full four weeks for your skin to completely heal after each session. Doing your second session too close to that 4 week mark may mean that you take much longer to heal from the second session, which is why we wait 6-8 weeks.
Plan to give yourself at least 2 weeks of healing time before your event or vacation.
If you are looking for perfect, wedding (or vacation) ready brows or eyeliner, we suggest working backwards from the big day, or the start of the festivities, and plan to have your first treatment 10-12 weeks in advance.
If you’re planning to have perfect, fuss free brows prior to having a baby, you will want to make sure you have time to get both sessions done prior to conceiving. I’d plan for having your first session 4-6 months in advance of ‘trying’. It is important to note that you won’t be able to have any touch-ups during pregnancy or while nursing.
Planning for illness
Sadly, illness or disease is sometimes the driving factor behind getting permanent makeup (PMU). Timing is important here as well. If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer and require chemotherapy, with your physicians approval, you may plan to get at least one PMU appointment complete prior to undergoing chemotherapy. If this is not an option, you will be required to wait a full two months, or until cleared by your physician, before getting PMU.
Plan for comfort
As women, we tend to experience more discomfort or sensitivity around our menstrual cycle. We suggest avoiding your treatment during that time of the month, especially if you have a lower pain threshold – so book your appointment accordingly!
You need to be off of blood thinners, prescribed or otherwise for a minimum of 72 hours before your appointment. If you are taking a prescription blood thinner, it is important that you seek your doctors approval prior to changing or stopping your prescription. Do not book your appointment until your doctor has given you the green light for the treatment. Over the counter blood thinners such as fish oils, vitamins a and e, ibuprofen (Advil) and aspirin (ASA) must also be avoided prior to your appointment.
Blood thinners can directly affect the outcome of your results. Any bleeding during your appointment may push out the pigment that we implant, leaving you with little to no retention.
Lash serums work by increasing the blood flow to the lash line, which in turn, stimulates lash growth. If you are looking for permanent eyeliner, the longer you are off lash serums, the better. We suggest being off for a minimum of 4 weeks in advance of your treatment, and avoiding them until at least a month after your second treatment.
Tanning should be avoided for 2 weeks prior to AND after your appointment. Again, plan your vacations accordingly. We suggest that you avoid traveling to hot, humid climates until 2 weeks after your final treatment.
Facials, Waxing, & Other beauty treatments
Avoid facials, peels, botox, and similar treatments for 2-3 weeks prior to your permanent makeup appointments.
Avoid waxing, tweezing, electrolysis, and waxing for 1 week prior to your appointment.
Knowledge is key when it comes to preparing for ANY treatment you are considering! Before booking ANY appointment be sure that you have read all of the information on our website including our FAQ’s. This will ensure you know how to properly prepare for your appointment, how to take care of your PMU and what to expect during the healing process.
Fail to plan and you plan to fail
You’re about to spend your hard earned money on beautiful new eyebrows or eyeliner. Make sure that you know the aftercare in advance of your appointment and plan your activities for the next few weeks around the healing schedule. Also ensure that you can make the time for your touch-up. All permanent makeup procedures are a two-step process and your touch-up is when we will complete and perfect your brows. The first appointment is just the start and you will not have your dreams brows quite yet!
So now that you’re prepared, head on over to the booking page and book your treatment!
