How long does it take to heal?
Eyeliner area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 50% as it heals. In the following days, the eyeliner will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the Eyeliner. No downtime is required. It takes approximately 7-14 days for area to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You’ll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.
How long does it take?
The entire procedure should take about 2-3 hours. The client is to come in for a follow-up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second session takes place after 4-6 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 1.5-2 hours to complete.
Is it painful?
The pain level for the procedure is considered mild to none. Prior to the procedure, your brow technician will apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area, and also reapplied during the procedure. Everyone responds differently to anesthetic; depending on the client, the feeling of the procedure has been described as light cat scratches to not feeling anything. Topical anesthetics used may contain lidocaine, prilocaine, benzocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine.
How Long does it last?
It will last 2-3 years or more. Color refresh/touch-up is recommended every 2-3 years.
