Before Your Appointment
Do not take aspirin or other blood thinners 5-7 days before the procedure to prevent bleeding.
Do not discontinue any medications that are prescribed by a physician or which are necessary for your health!
Avoid alcohol for 48 hours prior to the procedure to prevent bleeding.
Permanent hair removal should not be done five days before or after the procedure.
Botox and skin plumping injections such as Restylane may alter the shape of permanent cosmetics. You must wait until these treatments have worn off (usually 2 months).
Skin treatments such as Retin-A that thin the skin in the procedure area must be discontinued for at least 30 days prior to the procedure.
Check with your dermatologist about specific medications prior to a procedure.
Accutane users must be off of Accutane for at least one year prior to a procedure.
Procedures cannot be performed over fresh sunburns, including those caused by tanning beds. You must wait until the burn heals.
You will leave the appointment with the aftercare solution applied. This application will stay on your brows for 24 hours. After 24 hours you will gently wipe the solution off with a warm, damp cloth. Gently dry off the area and then apply the aftercare product that is provided.
Apply the aftercare product sparingly, two to three times a day for one week following the procedure or until scabs have completely healed. Use a clean cotton swab each time; not your fingertips. The aftercare product is used to prevent infection and minimize crusting. Apply a thin layer to prevent excessive dryness.
Stay out of the sun. If you must be outside, wear a hat and sunscreen. After the procedure heals, use sunscreen to prevent future fading of pigment color
Ice may be applied the first day following the procedure for 10-15 minutes per hour for a couple of hours, use a clean tissue to cover the ice bag each time.
Avoid exercise that causes sweating until the procedure area heals.
Avoid contact with water (shower, pools, etc) in the procedure area until the procedure heals.
Do not rub the procedure area while it is healing, pigment may be removed along with crusting tissue.
Avoid makeup, lash/brow tints, and other facial treatments until the procedure heals (5-7 days).
Avoid gardening and contact with animals for two weeks following the procedure to prevent infection.
Your permanent cosmetics will begin to turn darker immediately and for the next 3-4 days. After this, the colour will settle back to the original colour you chose.
Colour intensity is high immediately after the procedure. Over next 2-3 weeks, the colour may lighten up by 50%.
It is normal for some people to have pigment scab or flake off. It is also normal if it does not. Fading or loss of pigment may occur during the healing. There should be pigment under the skin where the pigment has flaked off. If there is no pigment underneath, you may need a touchup
Pigment may come off on your pillow while you sleep, and may stain linens. Use a clean cover that you won’t mind staining if this happens.
Symptoms of infection or adverse reaction may or may not occur. They include: excessive redness, swelling, tenderness of procedure site, elevated body temperature, rash, or purulent drainage from the procedure site. If you experience symptoms of infection or adverse reaction, seek medical attention immediately. Please note that some redness, swelling, and tenderness is normal.
Touch-ups should be scheduled about 6-8 weeks post procedure. All permanent cosmetic procedures are a two-step process. Results are not determined until a touch-up application is completed.
