Whether it's in-person or remote, we will walk you through the entire process and give the right information on our PMU services including but not limited to how it's done, what the differences are among different techniques, and why our recommended technique can be a better fit just for you.
You can ask as many questions you can possibly think of and we strongly encourage asking questions before, during, and after your appointment.
Sometimes PMU service is NOT recommended if you are under certain medication or your health condition is concerning or if your existing PMU is not on par with our standards. We will explain why and help you plan accordingly.
02 Initial Session
PMU procedure itself is a two-step process. Initial session and touch-up.
Now that we've gone through the consultation, your first appointment will be the initial session.
During the initial session, there will be a lot of discussions on the brow shape, thickness, leveling, amount of hair stroking and shading, etc. for your new brows. If your appointment is for the eyeliners or lips, we'll discuss the tailing, degree of gradient, color, single-tone vs. two-tone, etc. We'll draw the outline and show you how your new brows (eyeliners, lips) will be mapped out and correct if you have want some changes to the mapped sketch. Once confirmed with you regarding design/pattern, we'll perform the initial session of PMU.
After your initial session is complete on your appointment day, you'll be given our aftercare instructions. It explains in greater detail how healing would progress, but in summary you'll be going through so-called "healing" period typically 4 - 6 weeks.
During the healing period, your immune system will fight back the external matter (pigments placed under your skin during the initial session) and the color will fade out over time. You may feel itchy and sometimes even scabbing may occur if you had more than normal lymph fluid on you skin. In the 3rd week or so, re-darkening may or may not happen.
Fading is commonly experienced and it's part of the healing process. Seeing nice-looking new perfect brows on day 1 and fading out in the 1st week can be overwhelming. However, keep in mind that it's a natural process and based on the healed results, your touch-up session will correct any fading to perfection.
After the healing is complete (4 - 6 weeks from your initial session), you'll come back for a Touch-Up session.
On your touch-up day, your PMU artist will assess the healed results. Now we understand how your body's immune system worked and how the pigments are settled under your skin. Fading, scabbing, re-darkening and all should be completed by this time.
It's time for shape/color/symmetry correction lost during the healing period. Understanding your skin's reaction to the pigments, PMU artist can foresee what this touch-up would result in and can confidently make the needed adjustments.
Once the touch-up is done, you'll go through the healing again, but this time it'll be minimal. Your immune system learned already how to fight the external matter and it'll be much light in its reaction.
