Pre/post care

Appointment Preparation

  • Do not work out 24 hours before procedure. 

  • Avoid excessive alcohol or caffeine 24 hours before procedure. 

  • Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure. 

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 24 hours before procedure. 

  • Avoid power shakes and power greens, Fish Oil, and "Hair, Skin, Nail" supplements 24 hours prior to procedure. 

  • Discontinue Glycolics, Chemical Peels and Retin-A 4 weeks prior.  

  • Refrain from use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior to and 2 weeks after your procedure. Check your moisturizer, facewash BB or CC creams and makeup primers for anything that says acid. 

  • No brow waxing or tinting one week before. 

  • Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle as well. 

  • You have to be off any kind of Accutane for 1 year. NO Exceptions! 

  • No Latisse (on lashes or brows) for minimum of three weeks prior to brow proceedures.  

  • Fillers should be done six weeks prior to scheduled procedure or six weeks after procedure. 

  • Botox should be performed two weeks prior to scheduled procedure or two weeks after.

  • DO NOT SHAPE BROWS. I prefer to work with the most natural hair growth. If you can avoid shaping them, it will help me use every natural hair I can and make your overall result stunning. We will trim them as the last step to your brow perfection!

After Care Procedure

 There will be an epithelial crust that forms in the days following the procedure. This crust is a combination of dried pigment and plasma that forms externally. It is important that you do not pick it. Picking the crust will result in a loss of pigment. For the first 24 hours you may use washed, clean hands and dab with a wetted cotton round to remove lymph every few hours if there is excessive build up. Be cautious sleeping on your side the first 24 hours, as the pillowcase may stick to your brows and result in loss of pigment. After a few days, the crust will fall of naturally. For the first few days following the procedure, the area will feel similar to that of a sunburn. An alcohol and fragrance free lotion will help. Apply up to twice daily with clean, dry hands, patting it gently in. This will soothe the area, keeping it moist and helping it heal properly.  

 

Follow These Tips for Better Healing: 

  • Do not touch the treated area unless applying lotion. No scratching, rubbing, or picking of the treated area 

  • Be cautious around the area (such as pulling clothing over your head) 

  • Do not apply makeup on treated area until healed 

  • Apply lotion up to 1-2 times a day on treated area until peeling comes off; normally 5 to 7 days. (Again do not peel the area yourself, let this fall off naturally) 

  • Saline may be used if needed but not recommended 

  • Perfecting Session may be scheduled after 5-6 weeks of healing

 

*Healing is different from person to person. Genetic makeup, skin age, and many other factors may change your results.
