Tracy Fensome, leading permanent makeup artist & trainer suggests that permanent makeup is performed 3-5 weeks prior to having botox or fillers. It allows the permanent makeup to heal and to develop without any interference. Ideally the skin should be natural state and not been recently enhanced. Given the job of injectables is to change the symmetry of the face it is best to wait and have permanent makeup first.
If you already have botox or fillers then it is suggested you wait until it wears off and the surface to be as near natural as possible. This is to prevent the eyebrows being created in a slightly higher or closer position. If the client allows the injectables to wear off then the brows will return to their natural position. Remember permanent makeup lasts longer!
Of course, some clients will never being willing to allow the injectables to wear off and religiously rebook the next few top ups in their diary . If this is the case, Tracy recommends a full consultation so the areas to receive permanent makeup can be assessed and for the client to fully understand the pros and cons of permanent makeup and injectables together. It is possible but a few rules need to be followed for the best results.
Tracy Fensome performs her procedures regularly at Riverbanks Clinic, Helius Salon, Bodilight Laser Clinic and a few more around the Beds, Bucks and Herts areas. She will always provide a thorough consultation so that the client can have answers to the frequently asked questions for permanent makeup brows, lips or eyeliner. Her experience and knowledge of clients’ needs is tantamount to her success as a medical tattooist and permanent makeup artist.
