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

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

  • No waxing, tanning or staining 3 days prior.

  • Arrive without makeup to your appointment. It cleans up the pigment a lot and makeup can be ruined, so save yourself the hassle!

  • 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 hoursif possible)
