Eyebrows; what to expect and how to care for it
Expect that you might have slight swelling or thickness and or redness around the brow for one to two days following the procedure. Immediately after the procedure, the brows will appear darker and bolder than when they are fully healed. This is due to oxidation of the pigment and the redness of the skin. After three to four days, the color will become lighter as the epidermis sloughs off and the skin heals over the pigment. During this time the color will seem to disappear as the skin is opaque during this healing time. After two weeks the skin becomes translucent and the color will bloom. It is not uncommon to lose 25% to 30% of the color on the first application.
Healing the procedure: You will use either Aquaphore during the healing time of five days, after which you can apply something to moisturize as needed. Always wash your hands before touching the tattooed area. The following procedure is done each morning and night for the full five days. Apply the product, leave it on for five to ten minutes, then with a tissue wipe gently across each brow once to get off the excess goo, then dab each brow till it is dry, after a couple minutes dab again to ensure that nothing is left on the brow. However, starting on day three, only dab till dry, you must be gentle, do not pull off the scabs prematurely. Your brows should remain dry all day and all night. Following this procedure will ensure the formation of thin scabs thus more color retention. Keep out of the sun for seven days. Then after seven days wear sunscreen to aid in the longevity of your tattoo.
Cautions: If the skin around the eyebrows breaks out in a heat rash, small pimples, this is a reaction to the numbing solution and should go away by itself in a couple weeks, don’t pick.

Failure to follow post procedure instructions may result in loss or discoloration of pigment.
The known possible complications from micro-pigmentation are: redness, swelling, puffiness, bruising, dry patches and tenderness.
It is normal to lose approximately 1/3 of the color during the healing process. After the initial procedure, the color may be a shade too dark, in six days it will appear too light, then after ten days the color will show more.
The permanent makeup will appear softer when completely healed because the color will be seen through the layers of the skin.
