What is normal?
• Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising, and dry tightness. Ice packs are a nice relief for swelling and bruising. Aftercare treatments work well for scabbing and tightness.
• Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 5-10 days the darkness will fade, and once any swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If it is too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks then we will make adjustments during the touch up appointment.
• Color change or color loss. As the procedure area heals, the color will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear in places. This can all be addressed during the touch up appointment, which is why touch up is necessary. The procedure area has to heal completely before we can address any concerns. Healing takes about four weeks.
• A touch up may be needed 10 months to 2 years after the first touch up procedure depending on your skin, medications, and sun exposure. We recommend the first touch up 30-45 days after the first session. Then every 10 months to 2 years to keep them looking fresh and beautiful. Future touch up session will cost the current touch up rate at the time you have it done. If most of the hair strokes have faded the entire procedure will need to be repeated and you will have to pay the full price. An email photo consultation may be necessary to determine if you need a touch up or a repeat of the entire procedure.
