Proper aftercare is crucial for the success of any permanent makeup procedure. It can help promote proper healing, minimize discomfort, and ensure optimal results. Aftercare instructions will vary depending on the specific procedure, but some common practices include avoiding excessive sweating, exposure to water, and direct sunlight. It is also important to keep the treated area clean and moisturized, and to avoid picking at any scabs or flaking skin. Following aftercare instructions closely can help ensure that your permanent makeup lasts as long as possible and looks its best.

  • Loss of color may occur if these instructions are not followed

  • Let the skin naturally go through its own exfoliating and recovery process

Sun exposure:

  • Cannot be exposed to the sun during the healing process

  • After recovery period (peeling), clients may lose color which will make brows look uneven

teeth whitening

THE WHITE DIET - important to any teeth whitening procedure. Please bare in mind that after the treatment, the pores of your enamel are opened and this makes them extremely vulnerable to any staining agents. Once the pores close, which usually occurs 24-48 hours, you can resume your normal habits.

What To Avoid:

  • Dark, strong coloured liquids: tomato juice, cola, red wine, tea, coffee

  • Acidic beverages: alcohol, fruit juices, soft drinks

  • Foods with natural or added colorants: dark condiments (soy sauce, ketchup, mustard, balsamic vinegar etc.) chocolate, dark fruits (ex. blackberries), curry, spaghetti, chilli, beans, beets are some examples. 

  • Tobacco 

What You Can Have:

  • Chicken/turkey 

  • White fish

  • White rice/pasta/bread

  • White sauce

  • Cauliflower

  • Cottage Cheese

  • Peeled potatoes

  • Bananas

  • Porridge 


Avoid extremely hot or cold liquids. Tooth sensitivity is a common, but temporary side effect after after whitening treatments. Sensodyne toothpaste is a great option in the case of tooth sensitivity.

Avoid acidic foods and drinks. Highly acidic foods and drinks will open up the pores of your enamel and weakening the structure, leaving them more susceptible to stains as it allows it to more easily penetrate your teeth. 

Avoid dark, strong coloured liquids. We understand this may be difficult; you can use a straw to drink. If you cannot avoid drinking coffee completely, milk can be added to dilute the dark colour or try to limit your intake. 

Cut back on drinking and smoking. Frequent consumption of alcoholic drinks and heavy smoking can reverse the effects of teeth whitening. Many alcoholic drinks such as wine has tannins that can stain the teeth. The same goes for nicotine in tobacco. If you cannot quit drinking and smoking entirely, try to do it in moderation or lessen the frequency. 

Use smudge-proof lipstick to keep lipstick from getting on your teeth because regular lipstick can stain teeth.

Use maintenance products. Daily White Foam or Forever White are available to touch-up your smile as needed.


  1. Dress comfortably for your appointment that way you can enjoy your facial at its fullest. 

  2. It is recommended that you do not wear makeup to your appointment. If you do, it will be cleansed since it is part of the facial treatment.

  3. Avoid any strong at-home chemical peels, exfoliating treatments,retinol or any other intense treatments that causes fast skin cell rejuvenating and skin irritation 3-4 weeks prior to your appointment. 

  4. Avoid tanning 3-5 days prior to your appointment. It is important to not work on sensitive and sun burnt skin since it can be damaging.

  5. Be prepared to discuss your skin history, the medications, and medical conditions that you currently have or had in the past. 

  6. If you have a big event just around the corner, it is recommended that you schedule your facial 6 weeks in advance that way you don't risk heading to the event with your skin possibly purging or reacting.
