* Remember that permanent cosmetics retention can not be predicted. Our own natural immune system, skin type, genetics, aftercare, and medications can effect your healing. Additional touchups may be required and are a $50 tray fee within 6 months. Beyond the 6th month it will be an annual touchup charge of $250.
* Day of the procedure expect your brows to be darker and bolder than the final result. Once your brows have flaked and skin has healed over the pigment they will look softer and about 30% lighter. They will be a bit light for a couple days immediately after flaking and will continue to bloom as the lower layers of the skin continue to heal. Final color is usually about 8 weeks after the appointment. All touchup sessions must wait a minimum of 8 weeks for complete healing.
