This usually takes place within 4-8 weeks after the initial procedure. Clients who bleed easily or have oily skin may require an additional touch-up. Please be aware that color intensity will be significantly darker and sharper immediately after and for a few days after the initial procedure, but the color will reduce by 15-20%.
