PRE & POST CARE

*    *    *

BEFORE TREATMENT:

  • 24 hours prior to your procedure, do not drink alcohol, coffee, energy drinks, caffeinated teas or herbs. This will minimize any oozing/bleeding or swelling after the procedure.
  • Please do not work out the day of the procedure.
  • 3 days before your procedure, do not take Aspirin, Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen or blood thinners, unless medically necessary. Tylenol is fine.
  • For any cold sore outbreaks, you MUST wait until it completely heals before coming to your appointment.
  • Avoid heavy sunlight, three days before your procedure.
  • No waxing, threading, or tinting within one week of your appointment.
  • Avoid booking your appointment during your menstrual cycle as it can increase pain-sensitivity.
  • 3 to 4 weeks before procedure, do not have any chemical peels, microdermabrasions, mesotherapy, botox, fillers, or any other intense treatments.
  • You must be off Accutane or any prescribed acne medications for 1 year. NO Exceptions!
  • You must be off Retin-A or Retinols 7 days prior to appointment.
  • DO NOT USE growth enhancement products (such as Latisse, Revitabrow, Grande lash) one month prior.



AFTER TREATMENT:

We urge you to strictly follow all of these instructions to ensure proper healing/better result and avoid infection.

  • Notes: Your eyebrows will appear twice as dark and twice as thick during the healing process. Do not use bleach, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide or any lightening products to try soften the dark appearance. Please be patient! Your eyebrows will lose 20-30% of the color intensity when healed.
  • Use ONLY the provided aftercare package and follow the individual instructions.
  • Do not use any other ointments or creams on your eyebrows during the healing process.
  • Do not scratch, rub, or pick at your scabs as it will remove the implanted pigment. It is very important you allow scabbing to flake off by itself.
  • NO water on the brows! Only after no more scabbings are on the brows you may resume your regular facial cleansing, until then cleanse your face around your eyebrows. 
  • You can wear makeup but eyebrows below only. Nothing on the brows or forehead.
  • Avoid excessive sweating. However, if you must exercise then a light exercise (no sweating) is allowed after 2 weeks. If you work out regularly and sweat excessively, your brows will heal to a lighter color than intended due to sweat/oils the body produces.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight. For best results, avoid sunbathing and solarium for 30 days. 
  • Avoid light therapies, chemical peelings, fruit acids, microdermabrasions, and creams that contain regeneration factors for 30 days.
  • No Retinols, AHA’s, exfoliating and laser treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, botox and any other strong treatments for 6-8 weeks after your procedure.
  • You may resume your growth enhancement products (Latisse, Revitabrow, Grande Lash) after you are fully healed.
  • Please note smoking will cause the pigment to fade prematurely.
  • Remember: The better you take care of the treated area and follow the provided aftercare, the better your results will be.
