Can I go to work straight after my procedure?
Yes you sure can. Generally there is no redness at all but they will feel a little tender. Most clients tend to book in for first thing in the morning & go to work afterwards. Please make sure you have allowed enough time.
How do I look after them & what happens through out the healing process?
You will be given an aftercare pack explaining how to look after your brows & what to expect with healing. You will also receive aftercare products to look after them. You must follow the aftercare correctly to achieve the best possible healed results.
For the first 2-3 days your brows will look great & slightly darken over this time. Generally between days 5-7 they will start to get very dry & flaky. Rarely some people find they get quite scabby, every ones different. Over the next week or 2 they tend to look quite light as they are still healing under the skin. Through out this time they tend to get itchy too. By week 4 your brows will be healed & your colour would of resurfaced. Do not touch, pick or scratch your brows through out healing! If you do this will effect your end result!
