You can eat and drink anything you want before and after your procedure, this is not a surgical procedure. It is a good idea to eat before so you don’t get hungry during the procedure.
Refrain from taking any over the counter medications that thins the blood (like Advil, Aleve, Bufferin, Excedrin, Motrin, Nuprin, as well as aspirin) one day before. Do not stop taking anything your Dr. has prescribed, or without there consent. If your Dr. requires you to premedicate before a dental appointment then you will need to ask your Dr. if you need to do the same before your permanent makeup procedure.
You can return to work after your procedure if you wish.
It is very important if you have ever had a cold sore in the past that you get an antiviral prescription from your doctor before a lip procedure. They usually instruct to take it for 2 days before to prevent a possible outbreak.
If you have a color preference for a lip procedure, please bring your favorite lipstick for us to use as a reference.
