WHILE YOUR SKIN HEALS, BE PREPARED FOR THE COLOR INTENSITY OF YOUR PROCEDURE TO BE SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER, SHARPER, BRIGHTER, OR DARKER than what is expected for the final out come. This is a normal and expected result of the application and healing process. The healing process will take a number of days to complete, depending on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates and new skin regrows to take its place.
Color will appear darker and bolder after the procedure. Your color will oxidize and darken over the first few days. The color CAN AND WILL fade/soften anywhere from 10% to 50% or more.
Some residual swelling is normal for ALL procedures. Swelling and healing time is individualized. It can be minimal on clients. Every client is different. Blanching (whiteness around the treatment area) and redness is to be expected and can vary from client to client. It can last a few hours to a few days.
The area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red & irritated. This is all 100% normal. DO NOT PICK. These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis.
Picking can lift color and pigment from the treated area resulting in unevenness and blank spots. Let the brows flake off naturally.
Your brows may not exfoliate evenly. Please do not pick at the scabs. During the exfoliation process your color may look weak, orangey, pinkish, or grey. This will not be your final result. It takes a full 6 weeks or more for your true color to surface. Please be patient and wait until you are fully healed before you critique your eyebrows. Any refinements can be addressed at a follow up visit.
Healing is specific to each client. It is important to realize that you will need a color boost every 2 years to maintain its fresh natural appearance. Fading WILL happen after each procedure. We do not have control over your bodies healing process.
Everyone’s genetics, physiological make up, and life style will affect the treatment in various unique ways. You may need still to powder and/or pencil your eyebrows even after the healed results. This is an enhancement to your natural brows.... not a permanent one.
If you are out in the sun a lot, have oily skin, use anti-aging creams, Retin-A /retinol products, acidic cleansers, natural elements, regular chemical peels, or exercise frequently, your permanent makeup WILL fade prematurely. The better you take care of the treated area and follow the provided aftercare, the longer it will last.
Remember, that no two sides of the face are the same or perfectly symmetrical. While trying to obtain perfect symmetry is our goal note that nothing is PERFECT.
When you leave the studio your shaded eyebrows and/or your hair strokes are intact. Remember your technician will do their best to help you heal properly but lifestyle, genetics, age, and certain environmental factors can/will contribute to the retention of your eyebrows.
It is very common to have areas fade more so than others. This is part of the healing process and it may be treated at the recommended touch up appointment. Previously done eyebrows may take 1-3 treatments to achieve the desired result. Scar tissue in the brow area of eyebrows done multiple times WILL require additional procedures and fees will apply.
