Brow Care

If you want those beautiful natural looking brows to look good and stay looking crisp, it's going to take a little prep work.

Proper preparation for your brow appointment will prevent complications relating to your well being and help you achieve the best possible healed results. 

Within 24 hours of your appointment:

  • Avoid alcohol

  • Avoid any products with caffeine (this includes chocolate, soda, decaf)

  • Avoid blood thinning medications (such as aspirin, Advil, Niacin, or Vitamin E) unless prescribed by your doctor.

Within 4 weeks prior of your appointment:

  • Avoid botox in the forehead area

  • Avoid any skincare products containing Retinol

  • Avoid laser facials and services such as Morpheus 8 prior to your procedure

Some things to consider: 

  • You may want to wash your hair before your appointment. You will not want to get your brows wet with shampoo/conditioner water in the shower at least 10 days after your procedure.

  • Leave the kiddos at home. Make the necessary arrangements prior to your appointment so we can 100% focus on creating flawless brows.

  • Timing is everything. If you have a special event coming up within 14 days after your procedure, you may want to consider scheduling your appointment after the event to allow for the healing process to take place.

  • Bring a hat to avoid direct sun exposure on your brows after your appointment.


Take lots of selfies and tell the world how on point those brows look (or at least Yelp! and Google). Then be sure to follow these steps CAREFULLY to ensure those brows heal properly. The next ten days following your procedure are the most crucial to the success of your brow healing.

Please follow these instructions carefully during the healing process:


  1. Do not use any skincare products that exfoliate your skin such as scrubs, retinol, and acids while your brows are healing. Even after healing, exfoliation will fade your brows prematurely.

  2. Do not use any ointments or moisturizers besides the one we supply in your kit. 

  3. Do not scrub or pick your eyebrows. Your brows should flake naturally. If you pick them, you can lose pigment.

  4. Do not tan or expose your brows to excessive sun. Please use a hat when outdoors while your brows heal.

  5. Avoid heavy exercise, facials, swimming, saunas and hot tubs for 10 days. Light exercise with minimal sweating is okay, but keep in mind bacteria in sweat can potentially cause an infection. Additionally, the salt in your sweat may cause the pigment to fade prematurely.

  6. Do not apply makeup or any products on the brows for at least 10 days. Chemicals in makeup or brow tint can interfere with the healing process and color of your new brows.

  7. Do not thread or wax your brows for at least 4 weeks.


Day 1: Dab your brows gently every hour to remove any lymphatic fluid or pinpoint blood drops that may appear on your brows. Apply a VERY thin layer of ointment immediately after. A rice-sized amount of ointment is the perfect amount to use when applying. It is extremely important to not let the lymph or blood drops dry on your brow as that will cause scabbing. Scabbing will result in patchy brows and loss of pigment. No need to worry about your brows when you are sleeping as long as you have applied ointment before bed.

Day 2-5: Repeat steps above every 4 hours.

Day 6-10: Repeat steps above once in the morning and right before bed.


IMPORTANT: Avoid sweating and direct sunlight for at least 10 days. Sweat and direct sunlight with cause your brows to fade significantly.
