What to expect during the healing process:

- your eye or lip area may experience noticeable swelling for a few days
- your lips or eyes may be dry or itchy for a few days
-around day 3-4, flaking/peeling will begin (do NOT pick!)
- your lips or liner may appear too light once peeling has finished, but don't worry! The color will resurface with time
