After a procedure, the treated area will be darker, and the colour more intense. This will last approximately 3-5 days, until the area naturally exfoliates and the true colour emerges. Swelling is common but usually disappears within 24 hours. If an eyeliner procedure is being performed, the eyes will look red and puffy (as if you have had a good cry). An after-care product (if applicable) and written instructions are given after the procedure as well as verbal instructions on how best to care for your procedure. A mineral based make up can be worn to help reduce redness (a technician will advise you on this).
