  • Pregnant/nursing

  • Use of Accutane within the last 12 months

  • Use of botox/fillers in the eyebrow area or any medical aesthetic treatments within the past two weeks

  • If you are unsure if you are a candidate, please contact me and I will be happy to answer any of your questions

Previous work done from another artist

  • If you have had your eyebrows previously done by someone else and are interested in a cover-up/re-work, you must bring this to my attention by sending me photos of your current brows for a consultation

DOES IT HURT?

Pain levels vary by person. Topical anesthetics for numbing is applied during the procedure to minimize any discomfort.

HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY BROW APPOINTMENT?

  • If you have an ideal shape and colour in mind, bring a few photos of the eyebrows to reference. If you don’t know what will look good on you, I can provide guidance during the consultation. 

  • Fill in your eyebrows as you normally would as this will help us achieve your ideal shape.

  • If you regularly get your eyebrows: shaped, waxed, threaded or tinted, please do so at least 48 hours before your appointment so they do not interfere with the procedure.

  • If you plan to go on a vacation, it is recommended to plan your trip a minimum of 14 days after the procedure.

  • Avoid using blood thinning medication for a minimum of 48-72 hours prior to your appointment. This includes, but is not limited to: Vitamin E, Aspirin, Niacin, and Ibuprofen.

  • Do not consume ANY alcohol or caffeine (even decaf and teas) for at least 24-48 hours prior your appointment. 

  • It is highly recommended that you avoid prolonged periods of sun exposure and tanning before and after your procedure. If you show up to your appointment with a tan or sunburn, you will need to reschedule and you will forfeit your deposit. As your skin exfoliates from the sunburn, it will take the pigment with it.

HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY LASH LIFT APPOINTMENT?


  • Recommended to not wear mascara for at least a minimum 24-48 hours before your appointment.

  • Please arrive to your appointment make-up free. Note that using makeup remover can result with residue left on the lashes. This may result in a half/non-lifted lashes. It is recommended to use a non oil based makeup remover. 

  • If you wear contact lenses, you may want to refrain from wearing them during the procedure to be more comfortable
