When scheduling an appointment date for a permanent makeup procedure, keep in mind the healing time of the procedure. You will need a few days afterward without social plans or strenuous activity. You may not look your best (swelling, oozing, & looks like wet paint) so plan activities around the house.
Plan a shopping trip ahead of time for items you will need: ointments, straws, napkins for blotting, Q-tips, OTC pain reliever, prescriptions, a good book or movies. Get ahead on your dirty work – no lawn mowing or chores that will get dirt/ bacteria on the healing area.
It is imperative to follow all pre- and post-procedure instructions!

Dermaplaning is the controlled scraping of the skin using a sterile, surgical blade. Held at a 45° angle, the blade removes both keratinized cells on the outer stratum corneum and fine, vellous hair. It minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple and vibrant. It also helps prep the skin to increase penetration of active ingredients during treatment and for home care products, creating the perfect canvas for makeup application.
