Pre-Care Instructions for Brow Procedures

Please make sure you read the following instructions to assure the best results for your procedure:

  • It is very important to refrain from all alcohol, aspirin, or aspirin products, such as blood thinners, Ibuprofen (Advil) and Aleve for 24 hours prior to your appointment. The only product for aches and pain that will not make you bleed is Tylenol.
  • Please refrain from Vitamin E and fish oil capsules for 7 days prior to your procedure.

ALL of the above medication (with the exception of Tylenol) may make you bleed excessively. Excessive bleeding during the procedure will negatively affect the longevity of your semi-permanent makeup application. In some cases, the application will need to be prematurely stopped.

  • Do not use Botox in the forehead and eye area 2 weeks prior to your procedure.
  • Avoid Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion or other invasive facials 3 weeks prior to procedure.
  • Discontinue Vitamin A/Retinol products 2 weeks prior to procedure.
  • Discontinue prescription Retin-A products 3 weeks prior to your procedure.
  • Do not tint, thread, tweeze or wax your eyebrows 5 days prior to your procedure.
  • Do not tan 2 weeks prior to your procedure.
  • Please avoid energy drinks & coffee for 24 hours prior to your appointment. Not having caffeine in your system will help you to relax much more easily, as well as help to relax the facial muscles in the areas I will be working on.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you.
