It all starts with a good canvas!
The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive, and
non-irritated. Here is how to get your skin ready for the procedure:
Do not pick/ tweeze /wax/perform electrolysis one week before the procedure.
Do not tan 2 weeks prior to the service or have a sunburned face.
Do not have any type of facial 2 weeks prior to the procedure.
Do not work out the day of the procedure.
Do not have Botox 3 weeks prior to the procedure.
Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior to the procedure (they are natural blood thinners).
Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days prior to the procedure.
In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor color deposit:
Do not drink alcohol 24 - 48 hours before your tattoo.
Do not consume coffee before your procedure.
Do not take an Aspirin or Ibuprofen for pain relief (these also thin the blood).
Please make sure you eat prior to your eyebrow microblading session and drink plenty of water.

Your face should only be getting wet only at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.
