It is highly recommended to avoid physical activity (sweating) extreme heat, sauna, hot tubs for at least 7-10 days. Light walks and light yoga is okay.

Q: How long is the healing process?

Immediately after the treatment, the color will look a little darker. Client may experience mild swelling and then scabbing. Pigment will "disappear" and then start to resurface but will appear patchy in some areas and 
be approximately 40-60%  lighter than initial application. At the 4-10 week touch-up we will freshen-up the final look

Q: Will I need to shape my eyebrows after healed, like waxing or threading?

Natural eyebrow hairs will continue to grow outside of the treated area; some hair removal may be necessary.
