1 month before your appointment, no Botox or fillers around your forehead.

2 weeks before your appointment, no microdermabrasion or facials. Avoid chemical peels, regenerative creams, facials, exfoliants and retinol, or retain-A.

1 week before your appointment, no tanning or sunburn.

3 days before your appointment, no tinting, plucking, or waxing brows. Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, fish oil, or any blood thinners. Tylonel is okay.

24 hours before your appointment, no workouts, heavy sweating or exercise, no alcoholic beverages, caffeine, or coffee.


For 14 days: Aftercare is half of your treatment success!

No hot tubs, saunas, swimming, very hot baths or showers, tanning, or wearing makeup around the area.

Do not get any massages, facials, waxing, threading, or laser skin treatments.

Avoid exercise. Do not let any sweat, water, lotion, soap, or makeup touch the treated area. You may apply a thin layer of ointment when showering or washing your face to protect the area.

An aftercare kit will be provided to you with washing instructions after your service.

Leave the area alone while healing to let the skin naturally go through the healing process.

It is natural for you to experience what appears to be color loss where brows may look uneven or even disappear while healing due to the skin’s natural regeneration process. This is why we require a minimum of two sessions for the best, most natural looking results.

The first session is to lay the foundation and the second is where the magic happens. Some clients will require additional sessions due to individual skin type, regeneration, lifestyle and aftercare.


2 months before your appointment, avoid chemical peels, botox around the lips, lip filler and laser treatment.

1 week before your appointment, no tanning or sunburn.

5 days before, avoid alcohol, start hydrating and exfoliating. Drink 8 glasses or 64 oz of water daily, lip scrub nightly, apply vitamin A & D ointment often.

We cannot work on dry or chapped lips, so please come hydrated from the inside out.

3 days before your appointment, do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E, fish oil or any blood thinners. Tylonel is okay.

24 hours before your appointment, no workouts, heavy sweating or exercise, no caffeine or coffee.


For the first 5 days:

Use a straw when drinking liquids; avoid biting into foods that might cause friction to the lips, use a fork and knife.

No spicy, salty or hot foods.

No foreign body fluids.

No lipsticks or makeup around the area.

For 14 days:

No swimming, heavy sweating, saunas, ocean, heavy exercise and direct sun exposure. Wear a hat while in the sun.

No neosporin or petroleum products.

Dab 2x a day with antiseptic wipes.

Apply aftercare gloss, vitamin E or Vitamin A&D regularly.

An aftercare kit will be provided to you to take care of your lips during healing.

Brows and freckles tend to last 6 months to 3 years before requiring a touch up, and continue to fade over time. Lip blush lasts 1-3+ years.  Some people can retain color and shape past that length of time. Thinner and more mature skin can retain the pigment for longer, while oily skin tends to fade faster.  Taking antibiotics or hormone replacement therapy may also fade the brows faster.

Following pre-care and after-care instructions, doing a  touch up appointment and continuing to protect your brows or freckles with sunscreen after they heal, will sustain their appearance.

Microblading is not recommended for those over 25 or with very oily skin or large pores. A recommended alternative is microshading or combination shading and microblading technique.

Additionally, we do not provide Cosmetic Tattoos/PMU to those who are:

  • under 18 years old
  • pregnant or nursing
  • if you have diabetes, glaucoma,
  • skin diseases including: Shingles, psoriasis or eczema on the area of treatment
  • if taking blood thinners, heart medications, aspirin or products containing aspirin, medications for diabetes, lupus or any autoimmune disease
  • allergies to makeup
  • Keloid disorder, HIV/Hepatitis, skin cancer, hemophilia, or if you’re taking skin medications like accutane and steroids.
  • or if you’ve had Botox in the last month;

If you are under a physician’s care, a written release stating it is safe for you to get the procedure done is required. Examples are if you are going through chemo or have diabetes.

Vitamins or supplements that thin the blood must not be taken prior to your procedure, with the consent of your health care provider.

In the studio, each artist does their part by providing a custom treatment. Clients are responsible for maintaining aftercare during the healing process. Sun exposure, sweating, and messing with the brows during the healing process can cause the pigment to fall out or fade faster, so follow the aftercare instructions given to you while you heal.

Our after care instructions are provided at the end of your service, to create the best results. There is NO guarantee in the final results, as we have no control over what happens during the healing process, how your skin type responds, and your personal aftercare maintenance.

Touch ups must be booked no sooner than 8 weeks following your appointment. Your skin must heal before any additional treatment. We may choose to not work on clients who have not completed their healing or properly healed.

All transactions are final and no refunds will be issued.
