HEALING PROCESS

Days 1 to 3: Eyebrows look fuller, though your face may feel cut and tender

On the first day, your eyebrows will look very bold and full. The color may look extremely dark, but keep in mind that it’ll eventually fade.

You’ll likely experience:

  • redness

  • tenderness

  • mild swelling

  • mild bleeding

  • sensation of feeling cut or bruised 

By days 2 and 3, these side effects should slowly subside.

Days 3 to 5: Eyebrows look very dark, then start to flake off

As the pain and tenderness go away, your brows will darken and thicken. They’ll still look very bold.

By day 5, your brows will begin to scab. They will be flaky and extremely itchy. This is normal and means your skin is healing.

Days 5 to 8: Flaking continues and the color fades 

You can expect more scabbing, flaking, and peeling. 

Resist the temptation to pick the scabs, which can reopen the wounds and disrupt the healing process. It might also remove some pigment, resulting in patchy brows. Let the scabs flake off naturally instead.

As your brows continue to flake, the dark color will soften. But rest assured that the color will come back.

Days 8 to 12: Flaking ends and color returns

After the first week, the flaking will gradually stop. The color will also return.

Days 12 to 21: Color and texture look more natural 

The color of your eyebrows should look more even and natural. The individual brow hairs will also look more defined, creating the appearance of feathery eyebrows.

Days 21 to 30: Skin is healed

After 1 month, your skin will be completely healed. You shouldn’t feel any pain or discomfort. Your eyebrows should also look soft and full.

In another month or two, you’ll likely have a follow-up appointment with your provider. This allows them to check on how your skin has healed, as well as fix any spots.

 

Microblading healing after a touch-up

It’s normal for permanent makeup to fade over time. Therefore, after your initial microblading session, you’ll need regular touch-ups. This will maintain the shape, color, and definition of your brows. 

Generally, it’s recommended to get a touch-up every 12 to 18 months. But the best frequency depends on your preferred look. 

It also depends on how your skin holds on to the pigment. For some people, the pigment may fade quickly, requiring more frequent touch-ups.

Compared to your first session, a touch-up is essentially the same procedure but on a smaller scale. It’s done on a few areas rather than the whole brow. You can expect a similar healing process, though some people report shorter healing times after touch-ups. Everyone is different.
