- Do not tint or wax or tweeze your eyebrows within 48 hours prior to your procedure. This will ensure that there is no skin irritation. Also, any large open hair follicles can absorb pigment.
- If you are using Retin-A, Tretinoin, Retinols or Glycolic acid skin products, please discontinue in the treatment area for 7 days prior to your appointment.
- If you have moles, bumps, skin tags etc, in the direct area of the eyebrow procedure, for health reasons we cannot color over these places. They will not hold color, and may need an assessment from a dermatologist to check for skin cancer or other lesions that need medical attention.
- Certain medications can affect the outcome of your permanent makeup. It is very important to refrain from taking any blood-thinning medications or supplements for 3-5 days prior to any permanent makeup procedure. This includes aspirin, ibuprofen, Aleve, fish oils, any prescription blood thinners, anti-coagulants, and vitamin E.
- Feel free to arrive with your makeup on if you would like for me to see how you wear your customary daytime makeup. You may also bring any photographic examples, makeup colors etc. to use in the selection process.
- Your permanent makeup will look darker and more dramatic for the first 3-7 days following your procedure. This is normal and temporary. You will probably call me at this point and ask me if this is normal. Yes, this is normal.
- You will be wearing a thin layer of healing ointment for 7 days. Please plan your procedure to ensure enough time to heal and feel comfortable with your appearance. Usually 5-7 days is adequate. You must stay out of the sun and water (swimming) for 2 weeks following your eyebrow procedure. Plan your schedule accordingly.
