Colour will appear very intense and dark immediately after your procedure. The reason is that the colour is sitting on the top of the skin. Once the skin starts healing or flaking colour will fade considerably, as it heals beneath the skin. The final colour should not be considered for approximately 6-8 weeks after the final visit. Do not be alarmed if it appears that most of the colour is flaking off. Some of this crusting will appear on your q-Tip, this is normal. This is the superficial colour and is part of the natural healing process. The Sun can cause fading to the pigment area. Always wear a light coat of sunblock on pigment eyebrows and or lips.
