Pre & Post Procedure Instructions
Before Your Appointment
You MUST be off Accutane or any prescribed acne medications for 1 year before treatment. NO EXCEPTIONS.
DO NOT take aspirin, fish oil, niacin, vitamin e, and/or ibuprofen or blood thinners 72 hours prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
DO NOT drink coffee, alcohol, or energy drinks on the day of your procedure to avoid bleeding/oozing and scab formation.
Not following these steps WILL lead to excess bleeding, blurry strokes and undesirable color.
NO tweezing, waxing, or threading for 3 days leading up to your appointment. Doing so before that is fine, but I am able to clean up your stray hairs during the appointment.
DO NOT have any chemical peels, microdermabrasion, mesotherapy, Latisse, Revitabrow, or other hair growth serums or intense treatments 3-4 WEEKS before the procedure.
DO NOT tan or sunbathe 30 DAYS before & after the procedure.
Please Note if you received or plan to receive the Covid 19 Vaccine, you must allow a 14 day buffer between receiving the vaccine and any permanent makeup procedure
After Your Appointment-Cleaning & Care
GENTLY wash your brows with a pea size amount of ink soap (given during appointment), using a damp cotton round. Wash 2x a day, once in the AM, once in the PM before bed. You do not need to scrub the brows, just use a damp cotton round to wash with gentle wiping motions in the direction of hair growth about 5x per brow, then rinse. Use a fresh paper towel to pat them dry, do not rub. Apply a light coating of healing balm (given during appointment) to brows after every wash to keep them hydrated. This will help avoid scabbing by removing any excess fluid, blood, and pigment that may collect in the area, and keeping the brows hydrated.
DO NOT drink coffee, alcohol, or energy drinks, or take ibuprofen/aspirin on the day of your procedure to avoid bleeding/oozing and scab formation. (Tylenol is ok.)
DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any flaking or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring. There is no need to touch your brows at all unless you are washing them with clean hands.
