The pigment is implanted in the basal membrane which divides the epidermis from the Dermis layer of the skin. This technique is therefore more superficial than tattooing.

Does it Hurt?
No, not really. On a scale of 1-10, most clients report a discomfort of about a 3. At the beginning of your treatment you will feel a scratching feeling while I am doing my first pass and marking the shape and design of the brow with my hand tool. A numbing cream is then applied which is absorbed into the skin within a few seconds. Once the cream is absorbed very little feeling remains.
Aftercare: Touch Ups
You will need to return for your touch up treatment no later than 4-6 weeks after treatment. After care for your Permanent cosmetics. Your new semipermanent make up always will look its best immediately after you walk out of your technician who did them. Your tattooed area will change during your healing period. Usually look much darker straight after. Entire healing process of your treated area will take something from 4 to 6 weeks depending on your metabolism and healthy life style. New permanent make up will develop dry flaky skin or heavy scabbing on top of the treated area, you might notice that your skin is itchy but its absolutely normal as your skin repairing itself if your treated area developed heavier scabs it is very important to look after them and take care of your tattoo. he most important is not to rub, pick or peel off your flakes or scabs.

What contributes towards scabbing of your permanent make up?
Incorrect aftercare procedures.
Blood, pigment and plasma(lymphatic liquid) drying on the area.
If an infection has developed.
Excessive application of your after care cream or ointment.
However your scabbing look like it always need your attention and proper care .
Your new permanent make up will go through many stages as we already mentioned.
* drying and closing of your open wound.
* up to other 3 hours your treated area will produce yellowish or clear water which is lymphatic liquid (plasma) it is totally normal as your skin trying to protect itself with this behaving, but once this plasma sometimes mixed with blood, ink will be exposed to the air it will start to dry on top of your skin and begins the formation of your scabs.
* and more of this fluid will merge together mixed with dust that is in the air and create more usually dehydrated crusty layer.
* dry skin will tell a lot about your treated area if it become infected area will usually by red swollen and oozing can be yellowish green ( in such case we highly recommend to see your doctor).
How to avoid heavy scabbing and heal your skin in healthy way
Let me mention some flaking or scabbing is normal because it is natural process and way our skin heals. This scabbing has to dry than crumble and fall off naturally.
If those scabs fall off sooner than they should it will potentially cause fading of colour, patchiness blended lines or missing elements of your permanent make up you can reduce the way your scab look and developed by understanding your proper aftercare.
In first 48 hours: keep clean your treated area and moisture with natural oils.
After 48 hours: Wash your hands before doing any aftercare.
You can use any antibacterial soap and wash your treated area gently to remove plasma, blood, died skin cells and ink… be careful not to over do it and be extremely gentle.
Do not use tap water as it does contain many living organism and bacteria which can actually cause post treatment infection.
The best is to use distillate, mineral or sterile water.( if you do not have any of them you can boil water in your kettle and let it cool a bit before you use it.
Once you cleaned treated area tap gently to dry than you can apply thin layer of your aftercare.
It is crucial that in time you do not apply aftercare on scabbing itself but apply only around your scab to moisture area and reduce your scab from lifting.
As we all have busy life style it is understandable you will still go to work and carry on with your daily routine but Have in mind that some bacteria mixed with dust will love this area and your tattoo is exposed to the air.
Before you apply other aftercare layer if needed, treated area has to be cleaned gently again to reduce any infection.
Again do not pick or scratch off scabs of any size as ink can sits within these scabs gradually leaching back into the skin and it will affect the way it will look.
Of course there are situation that we can not affect for scabs to be peeled of earlier than they should example when we sleep, if permanent cosmetics will be itchy it will be only your reflex to scratch it in night.
Or some people sleep on one side of their body more than other which will lead for one side of tattoo to fade more than for another.
Also dressing up, our clothes can catch on peeling scabs and they can be pulled off.
When your scab lifting and crumbling be extremely careful when you performing any aftercare procedures or doing anything, this is very important time when you must protect the scab the most.
Tips to remove excess scabbing
Some of the methods described here may be a bit risk and should be used only at the end of your healing process.
Wash your tattoo normally as you would you can stand in shower for about 4 min.
Than tap dry gently again, your scab will start to shrink ends lift off and will fall off naturally or when they are lifted but holding in small area you can stand in shower take antibacterial soap and use palm of your hand , roll your hand over scabs to make them softer and fall off faster when dried out.
Everyone’s skin heals differently and most clients develop patchy areas or the appearance of fading after the first treatment. It is important to understand that this is a two part process and the second, Touch Up Treatment will complete the procedure and, after healing, you will see the finished result. PLEASE BE PATIENT AND DON’T PANIC!
AfterCare: Important Info
Important Note: Avoid Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline during your healing period.
Anything with a Petroleum or Vaseline base can cause a reaction and can cause crusting and scabbing. We expect to see a little flaking but not scabbing. Vaseline/Petroleum can also cause sweating as the skin is not able to breathe.
There are many suitable natural oils that are great:
* Grape Seed oil – most popular
* Sweet Almond Oil
* Jojoba Oil
* Coconut Oil – absorbs into the skin without build up.
These oils heal the brow area holistically as well as getting the best results in retaining pigment colour in the skin.
