~NO BOTOX near the eyebrows for 4-5 months prior to an eyebrow appointment! She needs to work on natural canvas.
Botox can slightly alter the area, so when she draws perfect eyebrows on an altered canvas, then as the Botox fades, your eyebrows will no longer be perfect.

~No spray tan for 2 weeks prior, can spray tan 2 weeks after

You will be given a sterile sample of Vitamin A&D to use on the healing skin, Apply 3-5 times a day for 5-7 days.
During this 5 day period your permanent make-up will look very defined and dark! You will see potential right away, but feel it’s too dark for an everyday look. This is a good thing, if you leave loving it, it will be far too light by the 7th day. So it is important you leave feeling this way. It is not called “down time” but rather “dark time”.
The treated skin may weep a bit of serous fluid (same fluid in a blister) This is normal and can be gently blotted away with a dampened 4×4, which will be supplied.
A flaky film will form over the healing skin. Please do not pick, it will naturally flake off between the 5th-7th day. Avoid getting any products on the healing skin, like sunscreen, make-up, moisturizers, chlorine, etc…
Absolutely NO sun for 7 days!!!! (you may wear a headband to cover the brows completely) Sunscreen beginning on day 8.
Puffiness will linger around the eye liner and lip color for 24 hours. Use cool packs as often as you would like. The day after will be the most puffy, Plan on doing cool pack sessions (20 minutes on – 20 minutes off). You may purchase a small bag of peas as a cool pack to apply for your comfort.
Mild bruising is normal for the eyeliner, concealer on bruising is fine.
Use your headache meds for any discomfort during the healing.
You will lose 30% of your color by the end of the first week!
Colors continue to soften and settle for up to a month.
The second hair stroke application for the eyebrows will be scheduled at the original appointment (4 weeks to 4 months later)
