How long is the healing/recovery time for PMU procedures?

The process of healing will take about 4-6 weeks after the procedure. It is then that the final pigment fixation takes place. Pigment fixation time may vary according to your body regeneration and age.

Your new eyebrows/eyeliner/lips will go through several phases during the healing cycle.

The pigment will appear very natural looking immediately after the procedure. Swelling and redness is minimal with most clients, and will disappear within 24-48 hours.

The color of the pigment will appear much darker the next day. After 4-5 days your brows will start to flake & peel. For most people, the recovery time is between 10-14 days depends on the skin type. For example the dry skin type will heal faster than the oily skin type.

After your recovery period (when the scab starts peeling or fully gone), brows might appear lighter than original or even super light where you cannot see hairstrokes or any color. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost, as your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating. Wait at least 4-6 weeks to see the true color. Once the treated area is completely healed, any changes or additions that need to be made can be done at your follow-up appointment no sooner than 6 week once healed.

Please Remember

Eyebrow/Eyeliner/Lips heal in three stages:

Too dark – Too light – Just right. This takes 6 weeks to happen.
