Possible Temporary Side Effects

+ There can be possible discomfort even after the topical anesthetic has been used. Anesthetic works better on some people than others.

+ Infection. Although this is rare, and unusual, the treated ares must be kept clean and only freshly cleaned hands should touch the areas during the healing process. See aftercare for more details on instructions and suggestions.

+ Uneven appearance of color. This can be a result from poor healing, retention, infection, bleeding or various other causes. This will likely be enhanced during the touchup appointment. We can always add more.

+ Asymmetry. Every effort will be made to avoid asymmetry but our faces are not perfectly symmetrical, no ones is. Some bones are smoother and rounder than others as well as muscles can be more prominent on one side of the face than the other. Your touchup appointment will likely address any unevenness, however physical anatomy may not allow for this. See what you need to know for further reference.

+ Swelling and bruising. Some people swell more than others and this is normal. Ice packs may help and the bruising and/ or swelling usually disappears within five days after the treatment. Most people do not bruise at all however it is possible, more so for the eyelash line enhancement and lip blush procedures.

+ Allergic reaction. There is a risk with allergic reactions from the anesthetic and/ or from the pigment. If this happens please notify us immediately and consult a dermatologist.
