Once booked, we will send you a detailed list of how to prepare and what the aftercare will be however, to the right are a few key points to keep in mind when selecting a date as it may factor into your plans.

PREPARATION REQUIREMENTS

  • Cannot be pregnant, breastfeeding, diabetic, nor have any major underlying health issues. Please contact us if you are unsure so we may clarify and answer any questions you may have.

  • This is not optional and is necessary for optimal results. If you forget to meet the requirements, we recommend that you reschedule (see my Rescheduling Policy to avoid fees).
    48 hours before your appointment, DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL or CAFFEINE (soft drinks, coffee, energy drinks, some teas, etc). These are considered anticoagulants where they impact and can affect pain tolerance, outcome, and cured results. If the blood is being excessively depleted, the anesthetic gels and pigments used do not enter properly.

  • Make sure to do your research on our location, the day and time of your appointment, read the information about the process.

  • Remember that when attending your appointment you must take into account the technique you would like, to learn more about our techniques go to the "Brow techniques" page.

  • Schedule your day to relax and be ready for your eyebrow transformation as it is a 5-6 hour appointment and we want you to feel good.

  • 72 hours before your appointment, DO NOT TAKE ADVIL or other blood thinners such as ibuprofen, aspirin, niacin, or vitamin E unless medically necessary.

  • Botox should be done 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after the procedure.

  • NO RETINOL 6 weeks prior.

  • Avoid reserving around your menstrual cycle as it can increase your pain.

  • No brow waxing or tanning 3 days prior.

  • No tinting or dying of your brows within the month of your appointment as it will cause a false view of your true brow color/tone.

  • Arrive without brow makeup to your appointment.

  • Get ready to make your brows look a little red and very dark! - don't worry, they will fade in color 30-50%.

AFTERCARE 

REQUIREMENTS

For optimal results, we consider the aftercare a

requirement. The closer you adhere to these do’s and

dont’s, the better the outcome! For the next 1-2 weeks

(or until healed) we ask that you:

  • Avoid exercise (even a brisk walk)

  • Any steam related activities such as steamy showers (hot is okay but don’t allow it to become steamy), saunas, cooking hours over a steaming pot, facials (as they include steam), etc.

  • Any facial related appointments such as eyelash extension appts, microneedling, etc.

  • Makeup on or around brows (brow area specifically but anything below the brows is perfectly okay)

  • Excessive exposure to the sun

  • Anything that will open your pores more than normal such as if you work in a labor intensive environment, I’d recommend not taking on additional hours if possible)

 INSTRUCTIONS

1st Hour: Blot brows in tapping motion with the provided gauze every 5 minutes to eliminate excess lymphatic fluid that may be present.

 

After the 1st Hour: You may begin applying the provided ointment in a thin layer as needed every day until your brows are healed.

 

After 48hrs: You may begin washing brows in the morning one time a day with Cetaphil. Be sure to do so in a patting motion and pay dry and proceed with the ointment.
