After Care Eyebrows
Post Procedural Advice
Permanent makekup procedures are affected by the characteristics of your skin. If your skin is sun damaged (even from tanning beds), thick and uneven in texture, or excessively dry or oily, the result cannot be expected to be perfect after the initial procedure. Lifestyle, medications, smoking, metabolism, facial surgery, scar tissue, and age of skin all contribute to pigment retention and fading.
The healing process will take a minimum of 4 weeks, which is the average time it takes for cell turnover. It is highly recommended that a touchup be performed 4-6 weeks after your initial procedure. This ensures the best result, and keeps your makeup looking its best. How you follow your after care directions will have a big impact on your outcome.
