Day 1-3 Your eyebrows are about 15-40% darker then they will heal to be. They will also appear thicker than what we drew on. This is due to oxidation and swelling. Don’t be concerned with the darker, thicker appearance- this is part of the healing process. You make also have redness that will subside within the first 48 hours. Start primocyn right away. Don’t for get to blot off excess fluids.
Day 4 The peeling begins. The dark outer color will start peeling off revealing the softer, lighter color. Keep moist but don’t over do.
Day 5-8 Dark outer color finishes peeling off. The color is lighter and softer and the brows themselves are a little thinner. The color may have a grayish or ashy tone for a few days until the color clarifies. It could appear that you are missing color and have light areas at this time due to layers of dry skin over the new pigment. Give your eyebrows 3 full weeks to heal and for color to fully bloom.
Day 1 You will have anywhere from slight to heavy swelling. This depends on the amount of histamines in each individuals body. You may have bruising. You may appear as though you have been crying or have allergies. The eyeliner will appear thicker and darker than what it will heal up to be. No contact lenses for 3 days. No Visine.
Day 2 The morning of day 2 is most likely when the swelling will peak. Use your cool packs! The darker, thicker appearance lingers, and the area will feel tight and tender.
Day 3-4 Less swelling. The eye tissue still feels tight and somewhat drawn. The peeling process begins. Start ointment in 48-72 hours. Some feeling of pinching and itching is quite normal, the ointment will help relieve this feeling.
Day 5-7 Dark outer color continues to flake off and you will see a softer, thinner eyeliner. Color may look grayish or ashy until the color clarifies. You can wear contact lenses at day 5.

All procedures are conducted in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) blood borne pathogens standards. Once you leave your procedure it is important to follow after care instructions to avoid complications. Tenderness to the area is expected. This is a wound that must heal. Complications are extremely rare, however, if you observe any conditions that are not consistent with the healing agenda descriptions above, such as any sign of infection (pus, red streaks stemming from procedure,) eyeball irritation, or abnormal discharge or conditions, contact your doctor for treatment and advise me ASAP.
