Prep For PMU

“It’s all in the prep”

It all starts with a good canvas! The eyebrow and eyelid area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and non-irritated.  Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure:

  • Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before
  • Do not tan two weeks prior to the service, or have a sunburned face
  • Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to the procedure
  • Do not work out the day of the procedure
  • Do not have botox 3 weeks prior to the procedure
  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners)
  • Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days prior to the procedure.
  • In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:
  • Do not drink alcohol 24 – 48 hours before your tattoo
  • Do not consume coffee before your procedure
  • Do not take an Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Aleve or Advil for pain relief (these also thin the blood)
  • For eyeliner procedures, it is really important to not be using any Lash growth serums and to have stopped using them 8 weeks before. Those serums are great to grow lashes, but they impact the skin so that tattooing eyeliner becomes more difficult.
