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.
