What to expect after permanent makeup

After your procedure, you may experience swelling (more likely for eyeliner and lips); brows will have minimal swelling. Some clients swell more than others depending on how each individual’s skin responds to the procedure (everyone’s skin is different and responds accordingly). This may mean the area feels itchy. It will appear darker for the first week until the final healed result is complete. Your complimentary touchup will complete your session. **If you have very few grey hairs, you may opt to tweeze them. 

For eyeliner, it is very important for you to ice every hour throughout the first day to prevent the risk of color migration. 

What’s next if I am healed?

After your final touch-up, your permanent makeup should last between one and three years, depending on how well you take care of the area. We recommend that you wait 12-18 months before coming in for another touch-up. Some people do need to come back sooner; because of skin type, health, lifestyle . We also recommend that you continue using aquaford every night . These products will prolong your color and keep the tattooed area healthy. We also encourage the use of an SPF-30 or higher sunscreen year-round as well as sunglasses (for liner and brow clients). 


We want your brows to last. Please use your sunscreen and avoid harsh products. Wait a minimum of 12/18 months before having a touch-up (maintenance). Your tattoos are going to fade, and you may have to use a little makeup on them as time goes on.

Too much color applied too frequently will build up and have to be removed. The excess pigment needs time to come out on its own.

Medical conditions, lifestyle and general health will impact how long your tattoo will last.
