No caffeine (coffee, soda, tea, etc.) aspirin or alcohol for 48 HOURS before your appointment. This will cause excessive bleeding and make it hard for me to work which will result to rescheduling your appointment.

• Do not take fish oil, vitamin E, or Ibuprofen 24 hours before treatment. 

• Do not tint your eyebrows one week prior to treatment.

• Do not have waxing treatments a week before your procedure.

•Do NOT use any form of Retinol, Renova, Alpha Hydroxy and Glycolic Acid skincare products close to enhancement area 2 weeks prior to your procedure.

  •  If you're prone to cold sores, take an anti-viral RX by your Dr. (VALTREX) or an over the counter supplement(LYSINE.) Take the supplement for 1 week prior to your appointment.

  •  3 days prior to your appointment, exfoliate your lips with scrub to remove any dead or dry skin. This can also be made at home using brown sugar and honey. 

  •  After exfoliating your lips, moisturize your lips with your favorite lip balm! It's important to keep them moisturized to ensure the best results

AFTER CARE:
 

BROWS:

DAY 1: Enjoy your fresh brows

Gently blot any lymph fluid from your brow with a damp paper towel. Wash your fresh brows before bed. Do not apply ointment today.
 

Days 2-7: Wash twice a day if needed

Wash once or twice daily to remove bacteria, build up of product and oils, and dead skin. (Don’t worry, THIS DOES NOT REMOVE THE PIGMENT!)

Gently wash your eyebrows each with water/antibacterial soap or Fresh's cleaning soap. With a very light touch, use a q-tip (or clean fingers) to gently cleanse the eyebrows (go in the direction of your hair). Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean paper towel.

DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or exfoliants.

Make sure your brows are completely dry before you apply the ointment.


Days 2-14 Moisturize

Starting on day 2, apply a rice grain amount of antibiotic aftercare ointment and spread it across the treated area, If you have oily skin, apply it once at night. If you have dry skin, apply once in morning and once at night. Be sure not to over-apply, as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin.

NEVER put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.


Days 2-14 Blot Oil Sheets

Recommended highly for oily skinned clients or clients getting your service in summer months.

Use blot oil sheets to soak up any sweat or oil build up in the brows. You can use throughout the days when you are healing by gently tapping it directly to your brow.


Important notes about brow aftercare-

  • Limit your showers to 5-8 minutes so that you do not create too much steam. You want to keep them out of water unless you are washing them.

  • Change your pillow cases and try to sleep on your back to prevent rubbing your fresh brows on the pillow.

  • Avoid getting brows wet and avoid working out and swimming. NO SWEATING! 

  • Do not pick or scratch your brows at all during healing process.

  • Exposure to sun or tanning beds will cause fading or discoloration.

  • Try not to touch your face (brow area) much during healing. Your hands could have bacteria or oils that we don't want in your fresh brows.

  • Once completely healed, always add SFP (50 or greater) to the brow area when outside so your brows fade true to color. A lot of sun exposure can cause uneven discoloration and turn your brows ashy.

  • Avoid using chemical exfoliants on brow area, it will cause fading.

  • Do not use laser (IPL) in your brow. It will fade or discolor them.

  • Additional brow make up might be required for your desire look, especially when you have on a full face of make up.

  • As with every tattoo, we recommend avoiding pools, salt water and extreme sun exposure for at least two weeks following your appointment.

  • *It is extremely important to not pick at your brows or lips during the healing process*

Please wait two full weeks for results, and remember to book your follow up appointment.​

LIP BLUSHING:

DAY 1-5: Enjoy your fresh lips.

Repeat in the morning. You will continue this for 5 days minimal. Please remember this is a tattoo and should be cared for like an open wound. Do not over saturate with healing balm and do not let your lips get too dried out. It is important to not pick or bite on your lips. It is normal for the color to be uneven. Lips should naturally flake away like a sunburn.

Color on lips will take anywhere from 4-8 weeks to show back up on the lip area.
