What is the healing process for permanent makeup?
The healing time is normally 7 to 10 days. Upon completing the initial appointment the PMU area will appear thicker, bolder and very dark, this is good because as the area heals the pigment will fade about 30 to 50%, swelling and brow thickness will lessen in about 2 to 3 days.
How soon will I see my results?
Please remember, PMU application may require more than 2 sessions. However, the healed results afterwards is solely on the client! I can not stress to you enough how important it is that you following the aftercare instructions that’s provided to you. In cases, the skin will not retain the pigment at all, even after the perfecting session. The body is known at times to reject foreign objects such as pigment. Picking the scabs as the PMU area will result in pigment loss and/or discoloration.
The best trained and qualified practitioner can never guarantee the final outcome. Everyone is different! Your skin, body chemistry, lifestyle and aftercare routine all play an important factor in how your result will look.
*If you have any questions about aftercare, it is very important that you communicate with your practitioner.
What is the healing process for the brows (microblading)?
Beautiful, natural looking brows is the best way to enhance the face, but the healing process can be a bit surprising at first. Without understanding the process, you may cause yourself a bit more stress and worry then needed. Again remember it’s a “process”, it wont happen over night.
Since microblading involves penetrating the skin, causing cuts, there must be a healin process, as it would be with any other break in the skin. However, because its on your face, your initial reaction id OMG! What have I done? or No, What have you done ( meaning your practitioner)? But, don’t worry its only the begin, trust me it gets better.
To help understand the process, please see the following:
Day 1: YOU EITHER LOVE THEM OR HATE THEM
You love them, they look amazing
You hate them because you’re not use to having brows and now they are big, bold and noticeable.
Expect that the pigment will get darker through out the day
DAY 2-5: YOU FREAK OUT!
They are too dark: The pigment should reach the darkest level by day 2. Don’t worry your brows will lighten over the course of the following weeks.
They’re too thick: They may be still swollen.
They’re flaking: Remember, its like any other wound that’s healing; a scab begin to form and then fall off.
DAY 6-10: YOU REGRET GETTING IT DONE
The shape is off.
The color is gone.
DAY 11-15: YOUR ANGRY YOU THINK YOUR BROWS ARE RUINED
DAY 16-30: OK WAIT… YOUR EYEBROWS ARE ON FLEEK!
At this point, the color should have reappeared and some areas may be patchy. Remember, that’s why it requires more than one session sometimes.
DAY 31-45: YOU CANT WAIT FOR YOUR PREFECTING SESSION
Your eyebrows should be fully healed and you’re ready to undergo your perfecting session.
The purpose of the “perfecting session” is to apply more pigment where color depth is not as deep, or the shape needs to be more defined.
Your practitioner will not be able to make any adjustments until the brows are fully healed. Trying to correct brows that are not fully healed, can lead to scar tissue forming.
6-8 WEEKS: YOU LOVE YOUR BROWS & YOUR PRACTITIONER
Your brows are complete and your should get a full release from your practitioner.
* Keep in mind, depending on the desired result, some people will require 1 session and some may require 3, it’s all on your personal preference, and the overall recommendation of the practitioner.
