Permanent Makeup Eyebrow Healing Process:
Understanding the healing process is a vital component of your permanent makeup journey at Merk Beauty. Here’s a comprehensive guide to ensure you know what to expect during the crucial post-procedure period.
Initial Days (Days 1-7):
Day of the Procedure:
Immediately after the procedure, it’s normal to experience some redness and slight swelling around the treated area. The color may appear darker than the desired result initially.
Your technician will provide detailed aftercare instructions. It typically involves applying a specialized ointment to the treated area to aid in healing. Avoiding direct sunlight, excessive moisture, and picking or scratching the treated area is crucial during this phase.
Discomfort is minimal during this stage, and any sensations can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Following Weeks (Days 7-14):
Scabbing and Peeling:
Some scabbing or peeling may occur as the skin heals. It’s essential to resist the urge to pick or peel any scabs, as this can affect the final result.
Lightening of Color:
The color of the pigment may lighten during this period, which is a normal part of the healing process. This doesn’t necessarily indicate fading but rather the settling of the pigment.
Avoiding Certain Activities:
Avoid activities that may introduce excess moisture to the treated area, such as swimming or excessive sweating. Sunscreen should be applied if you need to be outdoors.
Full Healing (Weeks 4-6):
By weeks 4-6, the treated area should be fully healed. Any residual redness or swelling should have subsided, and the true color of the permanent makeup will become more apparent.
The final result of your permanent makeup will be visible at this point. If there are any concerns or adjustments needed, this is an appropriate time to schedule a touch-up session.
Long-term care involves protecting your enhanced eyebrows from prolonged sun exposure and avoiding harsh skincare products containing acids around the treated area.
If you have any concerns or questions during the healing process or after full recovery, our team at Merk Beauty is readily available to provide guidance and support.
