We strongly advise prospective new clients to book their microblading appointments at least 3- 4 months in advance of vacations, weddings, and special occasions. This allows adequate time for healing of both your initial microblading appointment as well as a touch-up enhancement session 8-12 weeks prior. To have perfect brows it is a multi-step process. Dream brows cannot be achieved in just one session. Some clients need more than two sessions to achieve their desired density and shape.

- Do not workout 48 hours before procedure
- No alcohol or caffeine 48 hours before procedure

- Discontinue Retin-A, Chemical and Laser Peels, Micro Dermabrasions, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), and any chemical exfoliate or “brightening” skincare at least 6 weeks prior
- Once your brows have healed, you must avoid using these products on the forehead area procedure to prevent premature fading

- Always apply sunscreen (50 SPF or greater) on brow area once completely healed
- Maintain removal of unwanted brow hair outside of your tattooed brow design by tweezing, threading, waxing or razoring
- Do not laser around your brow area (IPL)
- Some lasers may change the color of the pigment
- Additional brow makeup application may still be required post tattoo to achieve your desired look
- For further sun protection wear hats and sunglasses
- Yearly touchups are recommended to maintain your results
