What to expect with the healing process:

-The healing process takes 6 weeks. You must wait 6 weeks between appointments to make sure pigment has  resurfaced and to avoid causing scar tissue. 

-Pigment will look dark and intense the first week or so because the pigment is fresh. Color lightens by 20-40% when the new skin heals over.

-Any redness or swelling will go away within 2-3 hours but in some cases slight redness/pinkness around or in the tattooed ares will last for 2 months

-The tattoo can get dry and flakey and sometimes appear missing or patchy as skin heals over pigment. It typically resurfaces into week 3-4 of healing. After 6 weeks if it hasn't resurfaced or hair strokes flaked off while healing it is recommended to schedule a touch up between 6 weeks-3 months of initial application date. complimentary touchups are complimentary up to 90 days from initial procedure, after 90 days there is a charge for your touchup. it is our clients responsibility to schedule the complimentary touchup as soon as possible 6 weeks from initial procedure. We are very busy and our schedule is filled solid 4 to 6 weeks out so please book your complimentary touchup asap as to secure your perfect date and time. Some clients experience no scabbing or patchiness, we just like to inform our clients of all possible outcomes as to not be alarmed. The healing process is just that, a process. Everyone's skin heals differently so it is important to follow aftercare instructions given by your technician and be patient with the process. Absolutely no picking or scratching.

-You will start to notice a softer and more natural looking results week 4-6 of healing. You are completely healed and can schedule a retouch if needed from 6 weeks on from your first session.

-Microblading is a two step process. A 6 week touch up is recommended for new clients to complete a defined eyebrow shape and color. A minimum of 6 weeks is required between appointments to avoid the development of scar tissue and infection. In some cases you will need a third follow up if your skin type doesn't retain the ink well. There are different ink options for different skin types. Any adjustments in color, shape and strokes can be made at the touch up.
