Fifty percent of the outcome of your cosmetic procedure is dependent upon proper aftercare. Make sure to read this entire aftercare guide.

- Do not consume caffeine 12 hours and or alcohol 24 hours prior to your appointment.
- Do not take Advil or any other thinning medications such as aspirin, niacin, vitamin E, and/or ibuprofen unless medically necessary, 48 hours to your procedure. Extra strength Tylenol can be taken if you are sensitive and have low pain tolerance.
- Avoid tanning. If you have tanned this will affect the outcome of the healed color. Sun worshippers with leather skin this is not for you!
- If you’ve had laser removal or previous work done by someone else, the treated area has more scar tissue and can affect the outcome of the result. More treatments may be necessary.
- Avoid exercising the day of procedure as this will open up the pores. NO cardio or sweating for up to 7 days.
- Please note that you will be more sensitive during and around your menstrual cycle. Please schedule accordingly.
- No waxing, threading, or tinting 1 week before. (eyebrows)
- No chemical peels, laser resurfacing, strong exfoliants, Vitamin E, retinols, fish oil, or anything that will thin out your skin in the treated area at least 2 weeks before your appointment.
- Botox should be done one month before or one month after.
- Eat a snack as it can take up to 3 hours for new eyebrows.
- Please be off of any skincare products that contain retinol or acids on the treated area
Immediately following your procedure, the treated area will appear to be darker & bolder in color and more sharply defined. A aftercare packet will be provided. Over the next couple days, it will appear darker & thicker as scabs begin to form. You must let the scabs naturally flake off bit by bit. Everyone heals differently some may not even scab. It will take up to 14 days for scabbing and healing to be over. This is common for all permanent cosmetic procedures. Then 4-8 weeks after your initial appointment you will be able to come back for a touch up. Our pricing does NOT include your touch up. Please review your schedule and plan accordingly.
