Prepping your Pout for Rosie Lips
7 days until Day of Treatment:
EXFOLIATE: Dry lips do not make for an ideal canvas for lip tattooing. Dry tissue will rupture and tear easily which will make healing very hard. Dry tissue also blunts the hyperthin tattoo pen cartridges preventing good implantation of the pigment. Do a light lip exfoliation every 24-48 hours to keep dry skin from building up on the skin.
Here are some lip exfolation techniques & recipes.
*MEDICATE: Begin your course of anti-viral medication for those prone to coldsores.
48 hours to Day of Treatment:
DISCONTINUE: Alcohol, caffeine, turmeric, fish oil, Vitamin E, aspirin and ibuprofen for at least 24-48 hours as they cause blood thinning and will result in more bleeding during the procedure.
It is required that the client consult with their Physician prior to taking, altering or stopping any form of medication and/or supplements, or making changes to their dosing cycles etc.
Drink plenty of water & use a lip moisturizer to retain your lips hydration.
DAY OF TREATMENT:
-Do not wear makeup on our around your mouth on the day of the procedure. The lip area needs to be as clean as possible to prevent infection from makeup residue.
-Please eat a meal before your appointment. The appointment will take 2-3 hours, your lips will be tender, and the anesthetic will make eating difficult.
