48 HOURS PRIOR TO THE PROCEDURE

  • Avoid Ibuprofen, Aleve, and Naproxone. Tylenol is okay and will not affect your treatment.

  • Avoid drinking alcohol.

DAY OF THE PROCEDURE

  • Avoid coffee and energy drinks. Drinking caffeine can cause increased sensitivity, some bleeding, and/or muscle spasms in the face. We know caffeine headaches are no fun, so if needed please keep it to a minimum.

*Note:  If you use any of the above medications or products that we ask you to avoid, you may experience excessive bleeding and/or skin peeling and irritation. During the procedure, if your bleeding is abnormal, we will have to stop the procedure prematurely. If your skin is irritated or peeling, the pigment will not stay properly which will have a negative effect on the final brow appearance. Please adhere to the pre-procedure instructions to ensure the best possible outcome.
