Note: If you are planning to have any procedure done before a big event, I suggest you plan and book 3-4 months in advance to allow for proper touchups and healing!
Note: Eyebrows heal in stages. They will be darker at first, then lighten and peel, look pale underneath then the color will bloom back. It is a two-step process and some may need a third touchup for desired results.
DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss!
Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks after your procedure. Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyperpigmentation and scarring. Hats and SPF 30+, when healed, is necessary.
Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and/or hot baths for 7-10 days.
Avoid sweating on your face for 7-10 days. Sweating through or on the brows will expel pigment from the skin with poor results. This is super important!
Avoid sleeping on your face/brows for the first 7-14 days and wear bandaids cut to size while flaking at night to prevent accidental rubbing.
Keep your bangs and hair pulled back from your face for the first 7-14 days.
NO makeup or skincare products to be used on the treated area for 7-14 days and until flakes are gone. If your skincare contains retin-A, vitamin C, or any light acids—avoid on the brows completely for the lifetime of your brows. Avoid getting foundation on the brows as it will cause an ashy cast over them.
Sunblock when healed to prevent fading
NO eyebrow tinting for 2-3 weeks after
Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels, Laser Treatments, Microdermabrasions, and/or anything to treat hyperpigmentation around the brow area once healed to prevent fading of your brow tattoo.
Do NOT have IPL or laser done near the brows or treated area. Pigment will react negatively!! (Can turn black, or change color)
Inform your MRI technician that you have had a tattoo.
Failing to follow any and all instructions can result in poor healed results, additional costs and/or possible refusal of service. There are no written guarantees or refunds.
Same as eyebrow pre-care above but also:
Must not have eyelash extensions
Must not be using eyelash grow serum for 3-6 months. Will cause bleeding, poor retention and possible migration of pigment which cannot be fixed.
Must arrive eye makeup-free
If you have had any type of eye surgery, including cataract, Lasik, and blepharoplasty, you must consult your physician and get clearance. Most physicians require 2-9 months before you can have your eyeliner done. This is because there is slight pressure on the eye during the procedure.
Please do not wear contacts to your appointment and for 24 hours post-procedure.
Some may need a friend to drive them home after. Swelling is normal but can sometimes impair vision.
