You are NOT a suitable candidate for this procedure if the following applies:

  • Pregnancy or nursing
  • History of Keloids or Hypertrophic scarring (only chronic cases – Caesarian scars do not count)
  • Diabetic (doctor’s clearance required)
  • Chemotherapy (please consult your doctor)
  • Viral infections and/or diseases
  • Epilepsy
  • Pacemaker or major heart problems
  • Organ transplant
  • Skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.)
  • Excessively oily or sweaty skin
  • Sickness (cold, flu, etc.)
  • Botox 10-14 days before procedure
  • Accutane in the past 3 months (Roaccutane, Oratane or Accutane)
  • Heart conditions, uncontrolled high blood pressure, poor general health

Please AVOID the following for 72 hours prior to your appointment:

  • blood thinners
  • Aspirin or Ibuprofen (please consult your doctor before discontinuing any chronic medication)

Please AVOID the following for 1 week prior to your appointment:

  • omega oils
  • ginko biloba
  • St John’s wort
  • vitamins E and B6

In order to make your treatment as comfortable as possible, please DO the following before arriving for your appointment:

  • Get EMLA (topical anaesthetic cream) from the chemist and apply a thick layer of the cream (must look white) at least 1-2 hours before
  • Place a small piece of cling film or get a medical sticker from the chemist to cover each eyebrow (plasters don’t work, as they don’t seal the area completely and when you remove the film, the EMLA will dry out and stop working.
  • Allow us to remove it when you arrive for your appointment

Applying the EMLA yourself before you come in, is just an extra precaution that is highly recommended. However, should you not be able to apply it beforehand, we will be able to apply a topical anaesthetic to the area for about 20min before we start working.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: We at The Brow Studio prefer to not interfere with another beauty studio's work, so if you have had your brows done elsewhere before, please send us a clear picture of them to

Pre Procedural Advice

  • Permanent makeup procedures usually require 2 treatment sessions
  • Clients are advised to book their touch-up session for a time 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment
  • Please avoid Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or IBUprofen for 2 days prior to your procedure
  • Please limit alcohol intake the night before your appointment
  • Please note there will be some swelling and redness for up to 48 hours following your treatment

For the Lash Line Enhancement:

  • Do not wear any kind of eyelash extensions
  • Do not wear contact lenses during or immediately after your treatment
  • Lash Tinting must be carried out no sooner than 1 week prior to your treatment

Healing Period

The treated area may reveal the following symptoms 2-5 days after any permanent makeup procedure:

  • Tenderness
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Dryness
  • Eyelashes sticking together (Lash Line Enhancement)

Be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly darker and sharper immediately after the treatment. The colour will fade gradually as the skin heals and it is normal to experience some pigment loss — hence the touch-up. The process is considered to be incomplete until the touch-up has been done. Some people might require more than one touch-up, based on how well their skin accepts the pigment.

Post Procedural Instructions

  • No swimming, steam baths, saunas etc. for 2 weeks after the procedure
  • No intense exercise or sweating for 3 days after the procedure
  • Do not rub, scratch or pick the area/s (this can cause an infection and affect the healing process)
  • Do not apply any makeup removers, creams, ointments or lotions to the treated area
  • Do not wear eye-makeup for 3 days after the procedure (Lash Line Enhancement)
  • Apply Vaseline 3 times a day to the treated area, using a clean cotton bud (Lash Line Enhancement)

To keep your permanent makeup looking fabulous, it is recommended you have a touch-up every 6-24 months.
