– Do not drink coffee, tea or energising drink on the day of treatment (Caffeine makes the nerve more sensitive and prevents the skin from numbing as well as it should be.)
– Do not work out the day of the procedure.
– Do not drink alcohol 24 hours before your session.
– Avoid Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure (These cause the skin to bleed more easily. Which is not ideal for the session).
– Avoid Omega 3 fish oil, Ginseng, “Hair, Skin, Nail” supplements 1 week prior to your treatment (These cause the skin to bleed more easily. Which is not ideal for the session).
– Avoid sun and tanning on your face 2 weeks prior to procedure.
– No brow waxing, tinting, or threading 1 week prior to procedure.
– Discontinue Retin-A, Chemical and Laser Peels, Microdermabrasions, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), and any chemical exfoliant or “brightening/ whitening” skincare at least 6 weeks prior (Once your brows have healed, you must avoid use of these products on forehead and brow area procedure to prevent premature fading).
– Botox and filler on the forehead, temple, and eye area should be avoided 2 months prior to procedure for those who do not regularly receive injectables.
– Do not touch the treated area with your fingers. This increases your risk of infection.
– Use the protective shield when you shower and avoid getting the treated area wet for 3 days.
– Apply a thin layer of the healing balm twice a day (morning and night) for 7 days. Allow eyebrows to completely dry before applying healing balm (pat dry with paper towel or air dry).
-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 excessive sweating on your face for 7-10 days. Sweating through or on the brows will expel pigment from the dermis producing poor results.
– Do not use makeup, makeup remover or skincare product on your eyebrow area for 7 days.
– Avoid saunas, steam rooms, swimming pools and hot tubs for 7 to 10 days.
– 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.
– Avoid sleeping on your face/brows for the first 7 to 10 days.
– Once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock when going out in the sun to prevent the colour from fading.
– Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.
– Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels, Laser Treatments, Microdermabrasion, and/or anything to treat hyper-pigmentation around the brow area once healed to prevent fading of your brow tattoo.
