Microblading has changed lives – builds confidence, creates convenience and definitely saves you time and effort. So, I’m sure a lot of you are curious on how the Microblading healing process works, continue reading as you are on the right page! You will be surprised at how easy and quick it heals.
Day 1: Say Goodbye to patchy uneven Brows!
It’s the day that you’ve been waiting for – Microbladed Brows with hair-like strokes! The color is perfect and the shape is everything you’ve dreamed of.
Days 2-4: Temporary Darkening of Brows
As the pain and tenderness goes away, your brows will darken. This is because the fresh color goes through a period of oxidation. However, this does not last longer than 7 days and is minimal. You should not experience heavy scabbing. Any scabbing will be thin and light. You should feel comfortable going to work the very next day.
Days 5-7: Flaking and Fading
Your Microbladed eyebrows begin to flake as part of the healing process which lasts 1-2 days. The Microbladed area is itchy and you might feel irritated, but scratching is strictly forbidden. The area is still pretty sensitive and scratching can cause complications. So, AVOID picking and itching your brows!
Days 8-10: Flaked off and Color
You finally treat your eyebrows normally. The color of your eyebrows should look more even and natural. Remember, even though your eyebrows feel normal, your skin is still in the healing process. Your eyebrows will now look lighter than they will when fully healed at 6 weeks. This is because you have new skin and it needs a few more weeks to finish the healing process.
Days 14-28: Bloomed and Healed
After 1 month, your skin will be completely healed. The color and definition of the hair-strokes is beginning to even out and look more natural and brow-like. The skin of the treated area is not so sensitive anymore, but keep following your artist’s instructions and avoid certain products and activities.
Day 42: Follow Up!
This is the point where you’ll be able to tell if there is anything you want to add or change, there could be a couple spots from loss of pigment, which is all dependent on how well your skin took the pigment, BUT NOTHING TO WORRY! On your follow up, you have the opportunity to adjust anything you’d like about your new brows. This is your opportunity to make sure you are 100% in love with your beautiful brows.
Microblading is definitely worth all the trouble and it’s normal for your skin to flake and peel because once the healing process is through, you can enjoy your perfect eyebrows for months, even years.
