What can I expect after my appointment?
PERMANENT MAKEUP
Days 1-3
   Brows are much darker and bolder.  Can even appear warmer in color.  Some redness and swelling is normal. Should you have major swelling or have any concerns please immediately contact your primary care physician. Ice can be applied to brow area to relieve any minimal swelling or discomfort.
 
Days 4-12
   Some flaking and scabbing may occur. DO NOT PICK OR SCRAPE THE TREATED AREA.  Scabs that are removed prematurely will cause secondary scabbing and dramatically affects pigment retention.  Brows may lose pigment temporarily called the ghosting phase. DO NOT panic. Your skin cycles through several phases before returning to normal. 
 
4-8 weeks
   Brows are fully healed. Any areas that have loss of pigment will be addressed at your touch up as well as shape.  Remember this is a 2-part process.  
Factors that affect your procedure
Oily skin- can cause hairstrokes to be blurred or heal lighter 

Smoking/nicotine use: pigment fades much faster and healing is slower.  

Sun exposure: premature fading. As with any part of our skin we need sunscreen.  This rings true for your brows also!  Please purchase a sunscreen such as Color Guard that is for semi-permanent makeup.

Age Yes unfortunately as we get older our skin loses collagen, elasticity as well as pigment retention. Don't worry, that's what Top Ups are for!
How long will my
procedure take?
PERMANENT MAKEUP
3-4 hours depending on your procedure. This includes numbing, photos, consultation, as well as your procedure and aftercare instructions.  

HENNA BROWS/LASH LIFT AND TINT/BROW LAMINATION & TINT
