An initial application is incomplete until after a follow-up appointment which should be scheduled approximately 6-8 weeks after your initial appointment. At this touch-up appointment your technician can add more hair strokes, adjust shape/size and create a darker appearance if needed.

Two or three applications may be required to achieve the desired results. It is not uncommon to lose up to 70% of the color on the first application.

It is normal to have the brows fade after your first appointment. Your physician should have offered you a retouching appointment one month after your initial procedure. If they did not, you should request one.

Best of luck!
