WHAT TO EXPECT
Immediately following your procedure, the tattooed area will appear to be darker. This will last a few days. The treated area may feel a bit like sunburn afterwards but there should be minimal discomfort and minimal redness.
During the initial healing period, there may be scabbing, flaking or peeling of the skin. If that happens, do not pick, and allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own. This is very important!
The complete healing process takes about 4-6 weeks. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost, as your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating.
There will be many emotions during your healing journey. Do not fret. It takes a good 4-6 weeks before you see your results.
If you have any questions just ask.
