FAQ'S + POLICIES
WHAT IF I HAVE AN ALLERGIC REACTION TO THE LASH EXTENSIONS?
While allergies are rare, it does happen. An allergy can feel itchy, swollen, red, and possibly hot. Call or text and I will remove them, no charge, immediately. Unfortunately, we do not do refunds with reactions as I have already done the work. However, if you tend to be sensitive to makeup products and adhesives we can do a free patch test 2-3 days prior to your appointment to ensure that you will not have a reaction.
BEFORE YOUR MICROPIGMENTATION APPOINTMENT
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT. NOT ADHERING TO THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAN IMPACT YOUR HEALED RESULTS.Please Note: You will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.
It is recommended to eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the procedure.
No excessive alcohol or caffeine consumption 24 hours before your procedure. Alcohol and caffeine can thin the blood, which causes the skin to be hypersensitive, and bleed/bruise more easily.
Avoid sun tanning one week prior to the procedure.
Avoid blood thinning medications for 24 hours before the procedure. This includes Aspirin, Niacin (Vitamin B3), Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen, fish oils tablets. Please consult your physician if this is an issue.
Eye treatments - *Eyelash extensions should be removed 3 days prior to the procedure. No eyelash perm and/or tinting at least 3 days prior.*
Discontinue Retin-A one week prior to the procedure. No Botox around the eye area 2 weeks prior.
Eyelash/Brow growth serums like Latisse bring extra circulation to the lash line area which results in more growth of hair/lashes. This can cause the skin to be hypersensitive and bleed easily. It is recommended to discontinue the use of these products at least 3-6 months before your treatment.
Do not wear any eye makeup on the day of your appointment.If you wear contact lenses, please wear glasses on the day of your appointment.
As a courtesy, we provide appointment reminders for clients by e-mail and/or text. Please be courteous and contact us promptly, if you are unable to attend an appointment. We require at least 24 hours notice so that your appointment time can be reallocated to another client. Barring any unusual circumstances, Sybella reserves the right to charge a cancellation/no show fee of 25% of the total service cost.
