SEMI- PERMANENT MAKEUP & WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOUR FIRST SESSION

 

 

  • WHILE YOUR SKIN HEALS, BE PREPARED FOR THE COLOR INTENSITY OF YOUR PROCEDURE TO BE SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER, SHARPER, BRIGHTER, OR DARKER. The color will oxidize and will appear darker and bolder 24-72  hours post procedure and over the next few days. This is a normal and expected result of the healing process. The healing process can take up to 14 days to complete depending on how quickly the outer layer of your skin exfoliates and new skin cells grow to take its place.  

 

  • Some residual swelling is normal, blanching (whiteness around the treatment area) and redness and/or soreness is to be expected and can last a few hours to a two days.

  • The treated area will form very thin scabs, as they start to heal the scabs will flake off in random places and will appear uneven, dry and itchy. This is all 100% normal.  DO NOT PICK the scabs!  Picking can lift the color and pigment from the treated area resulting in unevenness and blank spots.  Let the brows flake off naturally.  These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis. 

 

  • During the exfoliation (flaking) process, the color may look weak, orangey (warm), grey (ashy) or faint- this will NOT be your final result. It takes a full 4 weeks for the true color to surface.  Please be patient and wait until you are fully healed before you critique your eyebrows.  Any refinements will be addressed at your  follow-up appointment.  

 

  • Healing is specific to each client.  It is important to know that you will need a color boost every 1-2  year to maintain its fresh natural appearance.  Fading WILL happen after each procedure. Previously, tattooed eyebrows may take 1-3 treatments to achieve the desired result. We do not have control over your bodies healing process.  

 

  • When you leave the studio, your eyebrows are intact- your technician will do their best to help you heal properly but genetics, age, lifestyle, medication and certain environmental factors can and will contribute to the retention of the pigment. This is an enhancement to your natural brows and not a permanent one. 

 

  • The color CAN AND WILL fade/soften anywhere from 20-50%.   Do not feel discouraged if fading is more than you expected.  To achieve perfect brows, the 6- 8 week touch up is REQUIRED and will be made at initial appointment.  

 

  • If you love the outdoors and are a lover of the sun, 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 nothing is perfect.

 

  • Permanent Makeup is an art, NOT a science.  All client results will vary. This does NOT replace makeup, in some cases you may still need to pencil in or powder your eyebrows even after healed results.  This is not a “no maintenance” treatment but a “low maintenance” one.

 

  • Your Perfecting Touch-up aka initial follow up appointment should be done within 6-8  weeks after your first treatment.  Any additional touch ups within 3-12 months are an additional charge. I DO NOT DO FREE TOUCH UPS after your FOLLOW UP visit and will charge accordingly to your individual needs.
