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 for a FULL 24 hours prior to your appointment. 

  • If you are on blood thinning medication for previous or current conditions, please let us know immediately and kindly consult your physician prior to your appointment. Having this procedure done while taking blood thinners can cause excessive bleeding during the appointment which will reduce the amount of pigment implantation and retention,  potentially alter your pigment colour and also delay healing which can risk poor retention and possible scarring.

  • 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) 1 week 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) on the brow area, as well as any hair growth serums 2 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 or paper towel. 

Day 2

Wash morning, noon and night using same instructions as above. You will have enough soap left over for your perfecting appointment.

Days 3-7

Brows should now remain dry until after day 7. You may use the Aftercare Balm as needed once your brows start to flake (around day 5). Apply a rice grain sized amount of Aftercare Balm (TINY amount, not goopy!) with an applicator or clean finger. RICE GRAIN amount will cover BOTH brows. NOT rice grain amount on each brow.

  • 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 7 days, 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't touch them for a whole week. 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) apply at least a finger length away from your new brows.

  • 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 1 week. 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.
