Your New Brows
When brows are first done they will be darker than your used too, but this only lasts about 5 days and there is good reason why they are dark to start with. While the treatment takes place the blood and lymph rush to the surface which can make the chosen colour look darker, but also as the skin heals you are going to loose up to 70% of the pigment! The skin sees the pigment as a foreign body and tries to push it out. So if the colour is a bit of a shock to what your used to, they will be the perfect colour once healed.
If it has been your first treatment you may have some areas that may not have taken so well, you shouldn’t worry as this will be filled in and any tweaks made at the 6 week top up appointment.
I always warn people that as the brows heal they may experience some scabbing, but nearly everyone that came back just said they had a slight flaking of the skin, and they said the only thing people noticed (if they even noticed) were the amazing new brows they had. That’s how natural they are.
Each colour is custom blended to take into account skin tone and hair colour, the shape of your new brows is drawn on and shown to you for your input before any treatment takes place. I will also take a look at your skin and advise you on how long the pigment will last. There are lots of factors when talking about how long the pigment will last in each individual, these include, skin type, skin care regime, using an spf, and age. I will be able to give you a rough idea on when a colour booster will be needed but it usually works out to be 1 year to 18 months.
So when your brows are done, yes they will be a bit darker but there’s no need to hide! Show them off!
