What to expect…
Healing varies but normal to experience the following:
Day 1; procedure day, may experience redness, soreness, tenderness
Day 2; next day brow will appear darker and thicker
Day 3; brow start feeling dry or tight, start ointment
Day 5-7; brow start to scab, be gentle
Day 7-10; scab start to crack, do not pull off
Day 10-14; scab fall off in small pieces
After 10-14 days; brow color will appear lighter
Before 6-8 weeks; brow color will darken again
*Diabetic, autoimmune or immunosuppressed clients may take double time to heal. For example, brows may not start to scab until Day 10 – 14, and the scabs may not finish falling off until Day 20 – 30. Be extra gentle and patient as your body is slower to heal “wounds”.
A aftercare bag will be given to you with everything you will need to properly care for your brows.
Trust the process!
