  • Smoking can cause permanent makeup to fade faster.

  • Avoid harsh products around the permanent makeup area, such as anti-aging, retinol, Vitamin C, salicylic acid, and glycolic acid.

  • Excessive bleeding will affect how your body retains pigment. To minimize bleeding, avoid blood thinning medications, aspirin, ibuprofen, Vitamin E, alcohol and caffeine 24 hours before your procedure.
