How can you get the best result when having permanent makeup on your lips?

Please come in with hydrated lips. Drink 4 16oz. glasses of water 3 days in advance of your appointment. Use lip gloss, too. I think the best lip gloss is the lip plumpers, since they work by hydrating that top layer of skin. That's why they are plumpers, sometimes even smoothing out the creases in your lips.

Why is hydration so important? Well, as a technician, I will often apply the pigment into the layers, just to have those layers flake off from being so dry. And remember, alcohol and coffee are dehydrating. Please avoid alcohol for three days prior, and I recommend drinking a glass of water (at least 8oz) per cup of coffee.
