Immediately after your session however, your skin is already healing itself.  It may be raised, inflamed, bleeding and sting like a bad sunburn when you leave the shop. It is important that you keep it clean and your skin moisturized.

The next stage in the healing process is peeling.  The top layer of skin will peel like a bad sunburn for up to a few weeks.  Sometimes it will even scab.
