Internal factors that create issues with permanent makeup are:
Production of sebum and overproduction which can cause the pigment to fade at a greater rate. Skin may require up to three sessions to deliver the results.
External factors that create issues with permanent makeup are:
Exfoliation of the area or treatments meant to target cell turnover.
Excess powder will cause flakes.
Concave scars may take better after 2nd (touch-up) session.
Sunlight, tanning beds, and other artificial lighting will accelerate the fading the pigment.
Salt (ocean water) and excess sweat (immediately) will also accelerate the fading of the pigment. You should avoid or minimize exposure to these elements 4-6 weeks after. Take care by covering the area and/or avoiding excess exposure.
Expect some discomfort due to the procedure. We take care to provide a pre--numbing gel and apply numbing solution throughout the procedure. Our goal is to minimize as much of the discomfort as possible
