If you have ever experienced cold sores, no matter how long ago, preventative measures MUST be taken in the form of prophylactic medication (e.g. Valtrex etc.) beginning at least 3 days prior to appointment and continuing for at least 5 days after service. If this instruction is not followed, there is nearly 100% certainty that the Lip Micropigmentation service WILL trigger an outbreak of cold sores in clients who are prone to them. An outbreak will result in loss of pigment, ruining the results of the service, therefore it must be prevented. Following this instruction is of the highest importance for best results and is solely the responsibility of the client
