The Healing Process

Results are contingent on the following factors: post procedure aftercare, skin type (dry, oily, sun-damaged, thick or thin skin), individual pH balance of your skin, and lifestyle preferences (e.g. exercise, alcohol consumption and smoking).

  • Following the treatment, swelling and redness of the skin is completely normal and will subside within 1-2 days

  • Brand new ink from a fresh tattoo may appear dark and much thicker than expected, while others might seem exceedingly bright (for blondes and redheads), which can appear shocking at first, but be aware that this is to be expected.

  • During the healing phase, the area and top layer starts to scab and slough off in certain places. This process is called shedding.  Comparatively, these sections may appear extremely light next to the non-shedded segments. Don’t worry, this pigment will eventually soften and settle into the appropriate shade when shedding is complete and pigment resurfaces.

  • Brows will appear 20 to 40% lighter within 7-10 days

  • In total, it should take about 3-4 weeks for your new eyebrow tattoo to shed completely and the pigment to resurface to its true color.

  • Some skin types retain color better than others, so we cannot guarantee a precise effect or color. We include a complimentary AND optional touch-up session in our rate, in anticipation of individual healing results, and in turn, individual enhancements needed to your perfect brow. 

With proper follow-through on the aftercare instruction, it is normal to see small scabs, which is the top layers of skin peeling off. The tattooed area is a healing wound, so aftercare is critical. FAILURE TO FOLLOW AFTERCARE INSTRUCTIONS MAY RESULT IN PIGMENT LOSS!
