Additional Instructions for Before Eyeliner Procedures: 
  • Bromelain and Arnica Montana oral supplements (not topical gel) are HIGHLY recommended for 2 weeks prior and 1 week after procedure. Take as directed on the package. These supplements reduce trauma (bruising and swelling) and therefore, allow more pigment to be implanted into the skin and promote healing of the delicate skin around your eyes. Once you start to swell, you will not retain any additional pigment and I must stop the procedure so these supplements are extremely helpful to your outcome. (Bromelain is also contained in fresh pineapple). 
  • Latisse must be discontinued 6 weeks prior to any eyeliner procedure. Any other brands of eyelash or eyebrow growth serums or conditioners should be discontinued 2 days prior to eyeliner procedures.  
  • Contact lenses - Do not wear contact lenses during or immediately following the eyeliner procedure. Remember to bring your glasses. You may wear your contact lenses as soon as your eyes feel comfortable enough to do so. 
  • Eyelash Extensions - must be removed at least 48 hours prior to the procedure and not put back on until 1-2 weeks after the procedure.
