For All Procedures
Bring your government issued ID.
Do not drink alcohol 24 hours before your procedure.
Do not consume coffee or any caffeine 24 hours before your procedure.

Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E 1 week prior (natural blood thinners).
Ensure you have not taken Accutane or similar for AT LEAST 1 YEAR!
Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before the procedure, the more natural hairs you have, the better.

If you get lip filler or plan to get lip filler, make sure your filler is healed for 6 weeks before receiving lip blushing. If you have had Restylane, you need to wait 1 year before getting lip blushing, as your tattooed lip color could migrate outside of the lip border.
It is recommended to visit your physician and get a prescription for Valrex or similar prior to your appointment.
