Suggestions for before the procedure

Before

  • You must be off Accutane for 1 year
  • Do not work out on the day of the procedure.
  • Botox should be given 4 weeks prior or 3 weeks after your procedure.
  • No chemical peels 60 days before or 60 days after (brows will peel quicker due to chemicals traveling under the skin)
  • Do not take Aspirin, Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E, Ibuprofen or blood thinners 24 hours prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine. 
  • Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energy drinks on the day of, before the procedure. 
  • If you tint or wax your brows, do so at least 3 days prior. 
  • Do not tan or have a sunburned face on your day.
  • No Retinols/Retin-A's or other anti-aging creams or serums containing acids that will fade pigment prematurely. 
  • You could wash your hair before the procedure so you have couple days of keeping your forehead dry. 

After

  • Avoid direct sun, swimming or working out for 2 WEEKS after the treatment. Excess sweating of any kind expands the pores by body heat and sweat has salt in it which can fade or blur the pigment or cause it to not take!
  • FOLLOW AFTERCARE instructions and use the products given in the care kit.  Do not pick or rub any epithelial crust that might form.
  • Use sunblock only on healed brows.
