+ Pain. There can be pain 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 pigmentation. This can be a result from poor healing, infection, bleeding or various other causes. Your 4 week touchup will likely correct any uneven appearance. 

+ Asymmetry. Every effort will be made to avoid asymmetry but our faces are not perfectly symmetrical so this is taken into consideration during the measurement stage. Your touchup appointment will likely correct any unevenness. See what you need to know for further reference.

+ Swelling + bruising. Some people swell more than others and this is normal. Ice packs may help and the bruising and/ or swelling usually disappears within 1-5 days after the treatment. Most people do not bruise at all.

+ Allergic reaction. There is a risk with allergic reactions from the anesthetic and/ or from the plant-based pigment. If this happens please call me immediately so it is noted in your chart and consult a dermatologist.
