Preparing for your Brow Appointment:

If you are considering having a Brow Tint or Lash Tint and have never done so, we recommend having a test patch 24 hours prior to your appointment to avoid any reactions.

Avoid using self- tanning products on your face prior to your appointment as this will alter your Brow tint colour. 

We recommend Lightly exfoliating your brows the day before your appointment to remove any dead flaky skin to allow brow colour staining power.

Avoid trimming and tweezing your brows in-between your brow service as this will interfere with your brow growth cycle and shape. 

DO NOT

  • Sunbathe or use tanning beds up to 24 hours before

  • Workout up to 1 hour before

  • Receive Peel (Glycol AHA, BHA etc) or dermabrasion 24hrs prior

  • NOT recommend waxing if you are using the following:

  • *Please note that tweezing or threading  is available if unable to get waxing. 

  • RetinaA/Renova/Retinol is a medication for anti-aging. We require 30 days of non-use.

  • RoAccutane is used to treat acne. It belongs to a group of medicines called retinoids, like Vitamin A. We require 90 days of non-use.

  • Differen topical is used for the treatment of acne. – We require 14 days of non-use. 

  • Metro-Gel is a topical medication used for rosacea. We require 14 days of non -use

 

Other factors that may affect your waxing or threading experience:

  • Antibiotics- May lift skin and make it extremely red

  • Menstrual cycle

  • Allergies, lack of sleep, caffeine, alcohol

POST Brow service TIPS

  • Use Aloe Vera or hydrocortisone as a topical application during healing process. If your skin has lifted with wax we recommend using paw paw ointment to aid with the healing process. 

  • Keep the Waxed  or Threaded area clean, do not use harsh cleansers, tanning products, or creams for 24-48hrs post brow service. 

  • Avoid touching or using makeup for a couple of hours after waxed or threaded area to prevent bacteria clogging pores.

  • Do not exfoliate for 2-3 days post-waxing/threading and then exfoliate regularly to avoid ingrown hairs.

  • Avoid using harsh cleansers to your brows as this will prematurely reduce tint retention. 

  • No peels or dermabrasion 24 hrs

  • No hot tubs, hot showers, or baths for 24-48hrs 

  • Avoid chlorine for 4hrs post-waxing
