The skin is thicker in the eyebrow area and normally retains more pigment, which is why I approach things conservatively! But
you may expect to loose some color. But more can be applied! So don't worry...
Day 1: Due to my conservative approach, your eyebrows will look beautiful upon completion. Then later that day, they will
darken and may appear more red and inflammed.
Days 2-4: They will look a little bolder and wider for a few days, due to inflammation and swelling. Your skin will be red under
the pigment, which causes the color to appear darker. Please do not worry... All of this will subside in a few days,
Days 4-5: Natural exfoliation of the dead skin cells will begin to occur which will cause the excess pigment to flake away. As this
occurs, you may be startled to find that there SEEMS to be little, to no color under the peeling skin. DO NOT WORRY! This is a
normal situation and the color will become more visible in 4-6 weeks.
Days 6-10: Soon, a softer and more narrow appearance will result as new skin heals over the pigmented area. During this
healing process, the pigmented areas will begin to itch and will start to appear thicker in texture. As exfoliation begins, the skin
begins to flake, peeling from outside edges first. As the color finishes flaking off, things will begin to appear softer. DO NOT
PICK AT THE LOOSE SKIN.
Days 7-10: There will also be a gray hue effect for a few days until color clarifies. This may take 6-8 weeks for the colors to fully
Day 1: Your eyes will appear swollen, like you’ve been crying. And you'll have a heavier eye makeup look. The feeling is pinchy
and mildly sore. Some people have a very strong immune reaction and will swell a lot, while others will not.
Day 2: The following day, you will still have swelling upon waking, and for a few hours after. The heavy eye makeup look
Days 3-4: The feelings is less tight, less swollen and the color will begin to lift off of the skin. Itching is normal ! But DO NOT
pick at it.
Days 5-10: Depending on how agressive the procedure was and how fast your heal, the natural blinking movement of the eye
usually removes all pigment by the 5th or 6th day. Sometimes it takes longer. The color will be somewhat grayish and will take a
few more weeks for the color to fully clarify.
LIPS DO NOT USE WHITENING TOOTHPASTE DURING HEALING PROCESS!
Lips show the most dramatic pigment color changes! Lip tissue does not have pores or oil glands, so they are the first to expel
excess pigment. You can expect to loose from 50% to 70% of the applied pigment within the first week. Lip procedures can
require one to three followup sessions depending on how much color is retained and the depth of color still desired by the client.
Day 1-2 : Most swelling occurs on the 1st and 2nd days. Lips will be tender, heavy, hot, thick, lipstick look-reddish brick color
effect, due to blood being closer to the surface. They may have a slight metallic flavor for a few days.
Day 3: Less swelling, thicker skin texture at surface, sore, hot feelings before exfoliation. They may start to take on an
“Orangey” color. Don't worry, this will subside!
Day 3-4: Exfoliation begins. Feels like very chapped lips. DO NOT pick at it.
Day 5: Very chapped but almost finished with 1st chapping stage.
Day 6: See softer color. Lips will feel super tender until new skin fully covers the area.
Day 6-7: Lip color totally disappears. The “frosty” stage begins ( 2nd chapping stage), a whitish, grayish haze on lips.
Days 10-21 The Color begins to “bloom” from within more and more each day until
about day 21.
Day 21+ The full effect is completed - the color you see is the color you have. However, lips remain a bit dry for a month or two.
Use a good lip balm and they will return to normal but with a little more color! It is common for lips to need at least 3 sessions!
Please don’t be concerned that things initially appear darker and heavier than you
desire, then suddenly appear as if you've lost too much color. This is all a NORMAL
part of the process. We will add more color and make any necessary adjustments, at
the followup visit.

IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PROCEDURE:
Initially, the treated area will appear a little too dark and swelling
begins to occurs once the numbing effect wears off. Eyebrows don't
swell significantly enough to be noticeable, at first, but they will
appear to be thicker than when they are first done, and once they
heal, they will appear to be softer and thinner. Swelling normally
subsides within a day or two. Cool compresses are recommended to
reduce swelling and help hold pigment in place. Prolonged exposure
to heat, sun and water is to be avoided.
HEALED: As the areas begin to heal, the body exfoliates dead skin
cells as new cells are generated. As the dead skin cells begin to
slough off, tiny particles of pigment that have been trapped in the
epidermis are also discarded with the dead skin cells. When the total
process is complete, the treated area will appear much lighter
because only the pigment in the dermis will remain, which is now
covered by new skin cells.
