Things To Know Before Your Appointment


  • Reduce caffeine and alcohol intake the night before, as well as, the day of your procedure.
  • Some discomfort and increased pain sensitivity will occur during your menstrual cycle. 
  • If you would like to take pain medication, we recommend Tylenol as it will not thin your blood. If you are prescribed other medication’s that cause blood thinning such as aspirin or ibuprofen, please let us know before you make your appointment.

Health and Beauty

We want you to be as comfortable as possible. Please come to the appointment how you normally wear your makeup a daily basis. This will help you and your artist create a brow that suits your vision of beauty.

  • It is not necessary to have your brows shaped waxed or threaded prior to your appointment.

It will be nice to see how and where your hairs actually grow. If you insist, 48 hours prior and at least 10 days after will be recommended. 

  • If you normally tint your eyebrows with hydrogen peroxide it is recommended that you do this at least 10 days prior.

If you continue to do so after you've had this procedure it will cause premature fading.

  • If your skin is constantly inflamed or acne-prone, please contact us for a consultation to determine if this procedure is right for you.

Your skin is the canvas from which pigment is deposited. If your skin is compromised, the pigment will not retain well and is more prone to an infection after each application. If you are on any type of acne medication (accutane) you are not a good candidate for this procedure. To be considered you have to be off the medication for at least a year.  

  • If you come to your appointment with any type of break out, rash, inflammation, abrasion, blemish, bruise that is in the area that is to be worked on. We cannot proceed with the procedure.
    Please let us know if you have any concerns with your skin prior to your appointment. Per our studio policy, failure to inform us prior to your appointment will result in the loss of your deposit. A new deposit will be required to rebook your appointment. 
  • Refrain from taking any supplements such as fish oil (omegas) or multivitamins a WEEK prior to your appointment.

It will thin your blood and increase inflammation or swelling during procedure.

  • Refrain from any use of Retin A, Obagi, lightening, resurfacing type products for at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment.

It will thin your skin and not receive the pigment well. Antioxidants such as vitamin c are okay.

  • If you are sunburnt your skin will not take the pigment well. 

It is highly recommended that you refrain from excessive sun tanning or tanning beds 30 days prior and 30 days after. If you come to your appointment sunburnt where your skin is red from inflammation, you will lose your deposit and have to reschedule when your skin is fully healed. This is for your benefit, the results will not be desirable and will cause more time and money to be spent.

  • If you work out, we recommend refraining from working out 24 hours prior your appointment.

It is also highly recommended to refrain from working out at least 7 days AFTER your appointment. Increased blood flow will heal your brows prematurely and result in poor pigment retention. 

  • Eyelid Surgery or any type of facelift surgery should be done at least 1 year before your appointment.

It can slightly change the shape of your brows once all of the swelling subsides. Your shape can be adjusted but please consider that it will require more time and money spent.

Everyone heals differently, which means it may not be perfect the first session. Please be patient as it is normal to need two sessions to achieve the desired results. Your brows should start peeling after the 3rd day and finish around the 7th day. Sometimes it will take a bit longer to fully heal due to dry skin or sensitive skin, but not sooner than the 3rd day. If there is any redness or swelling it will dissipate within 24 hours.

For the next 7 days:

Please wait the total duration of this time as the results of the healing process will adapt accordingly to the conditions of your lifestyle.

  • Keep the area clean by washing with freshly washed hands and mild soap. Do not use a washcloth or sponge to remove soap. Simply wash with water. Do not use acne cleansers, astringents or anti-aging products. 
  • Use a QTIP to apply a thin layer of ointment throughout the span of the day. Too little and your brows may feel tight, itchy, and/or uncomfortable. Too much and your brows won't be able to breathe and heal naturally. It is better to start little and apply more accordingly.
  • Ointment should also be applied before and after taking a shower and/or washing your face. Use a QTIP and refrain from touching your brows with your hands.
  • Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off naturally up to the 7 days of healing. After the 7 days, you may use ointment (on a Q-tip) and rub off in a circular motion.
  • Avoid recreational water activities such as saunas, hot steam showers, swimming.
  • Please no gardening and/or activities with farm animals. 
  • Please avoid exercise. The salt produced by sweating will prematurely fade your eyebrows.
  • Allergic Reaction or Infection: It is rare, but there is a chance of allergic reaction or Infection. If there are any type of irritation, rash, or bumps stop using the ointment. You might be allergic or using too much of the ointment. At anytime you are uncomfortable please visit your physician for further information. 

Once healed

  • Maintenance appointment is suggested every 12- 18 months on average
  • Hot steam showers feel great but unfortunately can cause dehydrated skin and inflammation/cellular breakdown. 
  • An active lifestyle and oily skin are more prone to premature fading and brows will require more maintenance.
