PRE-CARE

  • Absolutely NO alcohol, caffeine (there is still caffeine in decaf coffee, tea and chocolate) vitamin-e, steroid medication, supplements, stimulants and any blood thinning medications such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen(Advil), Niacin 48 hours prior to your appointment. If any of the above listed, or any other blood thinners have been advised for use by a physician, then I MUST know before booking.

  • No active exercise 12 hours prior to your appointment.

  • Do not tint or Henna your brows 6 weeks prior to your appointment.

  • Avoid any type of facial, chemical peel, microneedling, microdermabrasion, laser treatments etc. 4 weeks prior, and heavy sunlight (tanning or sunburnt) 2 weeks prior. Your skin should not be going through a healing process prior to your appointment.

  • Do not tweeze, wax, laser, electrolysis or any other hair removal on your brows 1 week prior to your appointment.

  • Avoid Botox anywhere around the brow area 4 weeks prior to your appointment as it can alter the placement of your new brows. 

  • Discontinue use of skincare with active ingredients such as Retin-A, Retinol, Glycolic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) in the brow area, as well as any hair growth serums 4 weeks prior.

AFTER-CARE

Proper aftercare, especially over the next 10 days is crucial in determining

the healing, colour retention, final appearance and longevity of your new brows.

 

Day 1

Blot your brows with clean tissue for the first hour after your appointment to remove excess lymph fluid. If the oozing dries on the brows, it'll create scabbing and your brows will peel and flake like crazy! Within 2 hours post appointment, wash your brows with the Aftercare Soap provided, as follows:

Wash hands. Gently wash brows with Aftercare Soap with COLD water OUTSIDE of the shower in the direction of the hair growth in a LIGHT swiping motion, just to help remove excess oil, oozing etc. NO circles, scrubbing. RINSE THOROUGHLY. Cup hands with cold water and rinse to make sure all soap is removed. Pat dry with a clean towel and apply a rice grain sized amount of Aftercare Balm (TINY amount, not goopy!) The Aftercare Balm should never be applied to a wet or damp tattoo. 

Days 2-10

Wash morning and night for 10 days. Apply Aftercare Balm morning, noon and night for 10 days. You will have enough left over for your touch-up appointment if you are using it correctly. RICE GRAIN amount will cover BOTH brows. NOT rice grain amount on each row.

  • Be aware that the pigment on your brows will heal appropriately 30-40% lighter than they looked on day 1.

  • No getting your new brows wet for the first 2 weeks, other than washing OUTSIDE of the shower. This includes shower, sweating, sauna, hot tub etc. Excessive sweating before this time will REMOVE the pigment from your new brows.

  • NO MAKE-UP, LOTION, FACE WASH, SERUMS, SHAMPOO, CONDITIONER etc. can touch them for two whole weeks. Only the specialized aftercare soap and balm provided should be used until fully healed. After that, avoid all products on them that include active ingredients (acne or anti-ageing products.)

  • DO NOT pick or scratch at scabbing on your brows and no sleeping on your face!

  • Refrain from chemical peels, lasers etc. (anything harsh on the skin) as well as Botox and Fillers around the area for the first 4 weeks.

  • Avoid direct sunlight and/or tanning beds for 2 weeks. After that time you must use SPF to protect your new brows from premature fading and colour loss.

  • Do not pluck, wax, thread or engage in any other type of hair removal on or near your brows until fully healed.

  • If you are getting an MRI or any other procedure, always inform your medical practitioner or aesthetician that you have permanent makeup on your eyebrows, or a 'brow tattoo'.

If you have any immediate concerns regarding your healing (ie. excessive swelling, pain etc.) please contact me and consult a physician.
