Before & After Care

Inksthetics logo

Before Your Procedure

  • The morning of your appointment, please do not consume any coffee, energy drinks, caffeinated, or sugary drinks.

  • 48 hours prior your appointment, please do not take any ibuprofen, aspirin, consume alcohol, or any caffeinated drinks (coffee, coke, etc.)

  • 2 weeks prior to your appointment, please do not wax or thread your brows. This allows the technician to see how your brows naturally grow. In addition, please avoid the following:

    • Botox​

    • Fish oils

    • Brow tint

    • Eye cream

    • Sun burns

    • AHA skincare products

    • Tanning

    • Fillers

    • Collagen

  • For 30 days prior to your appointment, please avoid retinol, lasers, chemical peels, micro needling or any intense skin rejuvenation.

After Your Procedure

For Temporary Cosmetic Make-up Applications

  • Do not wash your brows. When cleansing your face, it is important to wash around the brow area.

  • Do not apply oils, soaps, or lotions as they will break down the product faster and cause fading.

  • Brow tinting typically lasts between 5-7 days depending on your skin. 

For Permanent Cosmetic Make-up Applications 

  • For 7 days following the application of permanent cosmetics:

    • Do not touch the healing pigmented area with your fingertips as they may have bacteria on them likely to cause an infection. 

    • Apply Aquaphor (no petroleum jelly/Vaseline) twice per day starting the third day and until the procedure area is completely healed. Always apply with a clean cotton swab, not your fingertips.

  • Do not workout until after day 5.

  • Do not apply make-up, tint your lashes or brows, use soap on the procedure area, or go swimming (in chlorine pool or recreational bodies of water). Avoid excessive exposure to the sun, saunas and Jacuzzis, contact with animals, and gardening for 7 to 10 days post procedure.

  • Before bathing, apply a light layer of Aquaphor on the procedure area using a clean cotton swab. Continue this regimen until completely healed.

  • Do not rub or traumatize the procedure area while healing. Pigment maybe removed if not cared for properly. 

  • Use a total sun block after the procedure area has healed to prevent future fading of pigment color.

  • Do not use products that contain AHA’s on the procedure area. (Example: Glycolic acid, Lactic acid, etc.) Be sure to always check your labeling as these ingredients will fade your pigment color!

  • Try to sleep on a satin pillowcase while the procedure area is healing.


If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please notify your technician IMMEDIATELY!


If you experience any itching, swelling, blistering, or any other complications post procedure, stop using the after-care product, and call your technician immediately. You may be allergic to the after care product you are using.


If you have excessive redness, swelling, tenderness, any red streaks going from the procedure site toward the heart, elevated temperature, or purulent drainage from the procedure site, please contact your physician immediately.


Thank you!
