Normal activities may be resumed immediately following the procedure. There will be slight tenderness, swelling and redness to the treated area which will generally subside within 36 hours.
The intensity of the colour will be significantly darker immediately following the procedure. This will reduce and soften during the healing process to deliver a more subtle, natural look.
The healing duration will take approximately 5 – 10 days, during which some fine crusting will occur which will naturally flake away during the healing period. It is crucial to the final results of the medical enhancement that this crusting is not touched or removed prematurely whilst healing, and that the additional aftercare guidelines are adhered to for sufficient healing and to avoid any post treatment complications.
Full aftercare instructions will be provided both verbally and in hard copy following the procedure, together with an aftercare healing balm.
The longevity of cosmetic and medical micro-pigmentation is variable from person to person based upon factors such as skin type, age and general lifestyle. It is recommended that enhancements be periodically maintained in the form of a ‘colour-boost’ re-touch to keep them looking fresh and at their optimum shape and colour. Generally, colour-boost sessions are recommended for every 12 – 18 months following the initial procedure.
