WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE HEALING PROCESS
Your new temporary eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
What is normal?
Initially, your brows may seem too red and too large. Don’t be alarmed. We have just worked the skin and it is natural for it to be red and swollen. It will calm down in a day or so.
The pigment will appear very sharp and dark immediately after the procedure. This is because the pigment is still sitting on top of your skin, and has not settled in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually. The scabbing process will also make the brows appear dark. Stay calm, all of this will lighten within a week or so. The color will eventually be 30-50% lighter and the brow will be 20-30% smaller when fully healed.
Once the healing of the skin starts taking place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression the color pigment is fading too quickly, however, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed / from your eyebrows. (DO NOT PEEL SKIN/ SCAB/ PIGMENT!)
Some strokes will disappear and re-appear 2 or 3 weeks. Not all strokes will remain. It is perfectly natural to lose between 10-15% of your strokes, they will get replaced at the top up or second session.
You may feel some itching, please resist. If you find yourself unable to resist itching, you may apply a thin coat of Aquafor or Bactine to the area for relief.
Follow closely the Instructions given to you by your Microblading Artist to ensure your freshly, bladed brows heal beautifully!
