Permanent Makeup Risks

  • Mild swelling, light scabbing, light bruising, and dry tightness. Use ice pack for swelling and bruising. Use ointments for scabbing and dryness.


  • Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 2-7 days the darkness will fade. Once swelling goes down, unevenness usually disappears. If it is still too dark and uneven after 4 weeks, adjustments will be made during touch up appointment.


  • Color change and color loss. As brows heal, the color will lighten and/or disappear in some places. Therefore, touch up is necessary. The treated area must be completely healed before we can address any concerns. Healing takes 4-6 weeks.


  • A touch up session may be needed 6 months to 1 year after first touch up depending on skin, medications, and sun exposure. Touch up is necessary 30 days after initial touch up. Failure to get 30-day touch up will result in loss of ink much quicker.


  • If skin breaks out in rash or small pimples, it may be a reaction to the numbing cream and should go away in a couple of weeks. Follow up with therapist so she can make a note of the reaction. If you feel it is a more serious situation, please seek medical attention.


  • If you are prone to Herpes outbreak, please seek medical attention to receive proper medication to reduce the chances of outbreak on the area being treated before procedure date.
