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.


  • This is not optional and required for optimal results. Should you forget to adhere to the requirements, we would recommend rescheduling (please see my Rescheduling Policy to avoid fees). 

  • 48 hours prior to your appointment, DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL or CAFFEINE. These are considered blood thinners in which impact and may affect the pain tolerance, outcome, and healed results. If blood is excessively running out, the numbing gels and pigments used are not entering properly.

  • 72 hours prior to 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 before.

  • Avoid booking during your menstrual cycle as it can increase your pain.

  • No waxing, tanning or tinting 3 days before.

  • Arrive with no makeup for your appointment. A lot of wiping of pigment takes place and makeup can get ruined, so save yourself the hassle!

  • Be prepared for your brows to look a little red and really dark! – don’t worry, they will fade in color 30-50%.


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 hoursif possible)
