Here's a list of expected thoughts and emotions that most clients will experience:
OMG these are way too dark and way too thick
What have I done???
Why are they staring back at me?
I can’t go out like this, I look insane!
The good news is that the intensified color and slight redness are part of the initial stages of healing and will only be from days 2-5. Don’t worry, don’t freak out - just be patient. This is the initial shock phase and we ask that you just simply trust the process. After day 7 and in the coming weeks, the brows will fade about 20% and shrink about 10% to a much more natural look. The sensation can be comparable to that of a slight burn and minimal peeling or flaking may take place. Refrain from picking at your brows as you may run the risk of removing pigment in the process.
Healing will vary with skin type and as mentioned, you may experience some color fading and loss of hair strokes - this is completely normal. During your follow up session we can assess your healing and fill in any faded strokes as well as give it a color boost. We can then recommend the best follow up timeline for future appointments.
