How to Prepare for Your Appointment
24 Hours before your appointment:
No caffeine or alcohol
Avoid blood thinning medications such as Ibuprofen
Avoid working out or strenuous exercises as this increases blood flow.
Pro tip: Shower and wash your hair the night before or morning of your appointment. Here's why:
Alicia will go over aftercare with you thoroughly, but a major point in the aftercare regimen is to avoid splashing water on them
for 7-10 days. While you'll still be able to shower, it is recommended to wait 48 hours before doing so.
1 week before your appointment:
No micro-needling or facials
If you have skin irritations or blemishes on your brows, please send a photo as it may result in rescheduling

Do not wax eyebrows, we’ll groom them at the session.
Stop taking fish oil or Vitamin E
