What to expect during the healing phase;
Everyone’s reaction to the procedure will be different, as everyone’s skin is different. After the initial procedure you can expect to have some swelling and some tingling for about an hour. To reduce swelling and speed up the healing process, you will be provided with after care cream to be applied. It will help with pain and pigment color retention.
