  • Some medications may cause adverse effects. Please get in touch for further advice regarding any medication you are taking. Doctor approval may be required in some medical circumstances.

  • If you take supplements known to thin the blood, such as fish oil or Aspirin, cease taking 1 week prior to treatment.

  • If you are currently pregnant, breastfeeding, we are unable to tattoo at this time.

BROW PROCEDURE

   BROWS PREPARATION

  • You may like to get your brows waxed/tidied 5 or more days prior to treatment.

  • Do not tint prior to treatment, we aim to colour match according to your natural tones.

  • Gently exfoliate 1-week prior to treatment and ensure the skin is well nourished.

  • Repeat the above step every second night until the day of treatment.

  • Avoid using Brow growth serums at least 30 days prior to treatment.

  • You will be advised to avoid cleansers near the area during healing, I recommend washing your hair prior to your appointment.

  • Do come in with an open mind about technique options. After a thorough consultation, your Artist will recommend the most suitable option to achieve your Brow goals.

   BROWS AFTERCARE

  • Gently press brows with a clean tissue to absorb excess fluid, prior to applying Aftercare product.

  • Using another clean cotton tip, gently apply a very thin layer of Aftercare product to the area 3 times per day.

  • keep the area completely dry from water, sweat or steam for 10 days.

  • Do this before showering rather than after, so that the product can assist with protecting your healing Brows from water.

  • Do not saturate the area with water during healing, until the final scabs naturally fall off (1-2 weeks).

  • Do not pick or scratch of scabbing. Doing this will result in uneven healing and poor colour retention.

  • Avoid cleansers on or near the area during healing, once healed be cautious of exposing the area to intensive fading treatments such as; chemical peels, microneedling, retinols, and cosmeceutical grade products.

  • Once healed, minor patchiness in colour may be present. This is normal and will be adjusted accordingly at the touch-up. I recommend wearing brow products to blend these areas until then.

  • Return for a touch-up at 4-6 weeks.

EYELINER PROCEDURE

    EYES PREPARATION

  • No lash extensions on at the time of your appointment, due to safety reasons. Lashes may be applied 3-weeks after your eyeliner touchup treatment is healed.

  • Avoid using Lash enhancing serums at least 30 days prior to treatment.

  • It’s essential to avoid eye makeup/ mascara whilst healing (1 week).You may like to get your lashes tinted 5 (or more) days prior. Do not tint less than 5 days prior to your appointment.

  • If you wear contact lenses ensure they are removed and bring your glasses if needed.

  • Avoid eye makeup  at the time of your appointment.

  • If you have any moles on the lash line, recent infections, concerns or irregular skin issues please reach out directly, or send through a close-up pic if you’re unsure.

   EYES AFTERCARE

  • You may experience minor puffiness after treatment, however, you can expect to resume normality; Driving or returning to work immediately afterwards is fine.

  • Slight increase of puffiness may be expected the next morning. This normally subsides throughout the day, however may last 3-5 days.

  • Apply a cold compress or ice to the area immediately after treatment, for just a few minutes, and repeat every few hours that day.

  • Avoid applying ice directly to exposed skin, a clean tissue may be used as a barrier.

  • Using a clean cotton tip, apply a very thin layer of product to the area 1-2 times per day, as directed.

  • Do not apply mascara or eye makeup to the area or touch with fingers until healed (1 week).

  • Do not apply lash extensions within 3 weeks post-treatment.

  • If you experience any unexpected discomfort or irritation of the eye area, notify your Artist and consult a pharmacist immediately.

  • Return for a touch-up at 4-8 weeks.
