  • If you don’t know if you are allergic to lidocaine, pigment, or makeup, schedule a patch test with us in advance.

 

 

Pre-Care ONE WEEK before the treatment:

For your comfort, and will feel less discomfort and you will notice faster implantation if you take some pre-care action. 

  • Before going to bed for 5 nights prior to the procedure, exfoliate lips with a natural scrub (sugar and coconut oil will work perfectly)

  • Apply Bepanthen cream (active ingredient dexpanthenol) after exfoliating lips

  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water because the hydration will dramatically improve the lip surface

 

IMPORTANT:

Note on Herpes Simplex Labials (HSV) : with stress, fever, infection, allergies, sunburns and, yes, a PMU treatment can induce a breakout. 

Therefore, we suggest that PMU clients with a history of cold sore breakouts or fever blister, consult with their physician if they’d like to take preventive measures. Doctors can prescribe an antiviral treatment to start 2-3 days before the PMU procedure using drugs such as: Valtrex (1500mg) Valacyclovir, Acyclovir, Famvir and Famciclovir.

Clients who have never had sores can take an over-the-counter L-lysine supplement.

We also suggest, pending doctor approval, clients continue taking the medication or supplements for up to 6 days after the PMU procedure. 

We do retail an aftercare product that is highly recommended to soothe and moisturize full lip color procedures AND has the added protection  of a herpes inhibitor,  local anesthetic and herbal antioxidants  for healing.  A real Favorite!

 

Note on the health condition Mitral Valve Prolapse, you MUST obtain a prescription for prophylactic antibiotics and have a doctor note of approval of lip tattooing.
