What should I do before I arrive?
Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 7 days prior to the procedure.
Avoid exercise, tanning, Vitamin E, Aspirin and Ibuprofen 48 hours prior to the procedure.
Avoid alcohol on the day of the procedure.
Discontinue use of Retin-A near the brows area for 6 weeks prior to scheduling an appointment.
Schedule your appointment prior to having a Botox appointment.
What will happen when I arrive?
You will be given a consent forms to sign, then you will relax while the professional outlines your new brows to a shape that you desire. After that, the professional will "clean up" your brows by removing a few hairs and apply a topical anesthetic cream to minimize discomfort. The professional will use a special tool and pigment color that matches your brow's hair color to draw the hair-like strokes on your skin. The entire process takes just over an hour from start to finish.
How do I take care of my brows when I leave?
Avoid water around the brow area during the healing process, which is usually 5-7 days. Apply after care products as recommended by the professional.
For better color retention, the formation of thin scabs is ideal, therefore keeping the brows dry during the day and using a thick coat of Vaseline to cover them ONLY when showering, washing face or instances where brows could get wet will aid in forming a thin epithelial crust (scab).
Do not pick the scab that forms. Allow it to flake off naturally. Picking can result in loss of pigment or color loss.
In most cases, the initial treatment followed by a retouch appointment is all that is needed until the strokes fade over time.
*Rare cases may require a third treatment. If you have large pores and oily skin directly in the brow area, there is a chance that you may need a third treatment.
