WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT?

Depending on the procedure, some things will differ and vary per service.

Client will have the chance to go over all paperwork which will educate and inform them of essential information during and after their procedure.

Discussion regarding end “goals” of their procedure.

Artist will map out, pre-draw, design & create a shape that will suit best with the clients facial symmetry, facial harmony and overall face shape. Once shape is confirmed, client will be pre-numbed for approx. 20 minutes.

Procedure will begin and can take anywhere from 1 (hr min) -3 (hrs max).

Once the procedure is complete, client will pre-book 6-8 week touch up and will be sent home with aftercare instructions that are essential for proper healing.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING & AFTER HEALING

Some residual swelling and irritated skin around the treated area is normal.
The treated area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red, irritated & dark in colour. These symptoms will dissipate each day. Symptoms vary on an individual basis.

The pigment in the treatment area will be darkest during healing (especially days 1-5).

Flaking dry skin, potential scabbing is normal and will naturally fall off.

Picking, scratching or rubbing the treated area can cause scarring or loss of pigment retention.

Pigment rejection is normal.

Healing is specific to each individual client. It is recommended that you may need a touch up between 1-5 year(s) to maintain the fresh appearance of your chosen service. This will differ based on your skin type, lifestyle and aftercare.

We do not have control over the clients natural healing and retention process. You may need to apply small amounts of powder, colour or pencil even after healed results.

During & after healing, pigment will shrink, fade & soften between 40-60%.

If there is alarming concerns regarding the following signs and symptoms:
Continued vibrant redness or swelling in the treated area, dermatitis, skin rashes, elevated body temperature, fever or grey, green, yellow discharge with or without odour, contact a physician immediately.
