Preparing for your Appointment

  • Avoid any blood thinners for 24 hours (Alcohol, coffee, pre workout, Vitamin E, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, etc.)-

  • Avoid omega 3 fatty acids and/ or fish oil 1 week before

  • Discontinue use of chemical exfoliants 2 weeks before

  • Do not tan or sunburn face

  • Do not wax or tint eyebrows 3 days before

  • If this is you first appointment, please come with your brows filled in or however you would do them on daily basis.

  • Permanent makeup is a multi step process and touch ups are needed in order to retain. Please be aware of the skin's healing stages and research this prior to your initial appointment.

Caring for your New Brows

  • For the first couple hours after the procedure, blot brows with a clean tissue to avoid excess lymph build up.

  • The day after your procedure, gently wash your brows using the soap provided. Make sure to thoroughly rinse off and pat dry with a paper towel. Continue to wash morning and night for 10 days.

  • After each wash, gently apply a thin layer of the ointment provided with a clean Q-Tip or clean fingertips. If brows are feeling really dry and itchy, apply another layer midday but do not exceed more than 4 times a day.

  • Brows should be kept COMPLETELY DRY for 2 weeks (other than when washing).

  • Avoid long, hot showers, swimming, saunas, working out and all other heavy sweating activities.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure for 2 weeks and after brows are healed, use a tattoo-safe SPF for longevity.

  • Do not apply any makeup to the brow or brow area for 10-14 days.

  • Do not touch or rub the brow and do not attempt to pick or peel at any scabs. Doing so may result in pigment loss or serious infection.

  • Do not use skincare products with glycolic acid, lactic acid, AHA's or retinol in the brow/ forehead area as it will fade your pigment.

  • If you are a blood donor, do not give blood for 1 year following your permanent makeup procedure.

Failure to follow these Aftercare instructions may result in pigment loss and/or infection.

What to Expect During the Healing Process

Day 0 (After Procedure): Brows will look perfect (some redness/swelling may be possible)

Days 2-5: Brows will be very dark in color/may be thicker

Days 5-10: Brows may be tight/itchy and skin will start flaking off/changing the shape

Days 10-15 (Ghosting Stage): Pigment will completely disappear as the skin heals over the pigment (This stage can last up to a week)

Days 15-30: Color will return depending on client’s skin retention

After Touch Up: Retention will be much better and brows will look more perfected

Please note, final results and time frame cannot be guaranteed as everyone heals and retains pigment differently.
