Microblading Healing Step-By-Step Process
The microblading healing process takes a couple of weeks until you see the finished product
Microblading changed people’s lives immensely since the day that it was introduced to us – it creates convenience, building confidence, and letting people sleep in longer in the morning – seriously.
During the healing process, your brows will go through several healing stages which includes, scabbing, flaking, and lightening of your microbladed brows. However, you don’t have to be afraid – it is completely normal. And to guide you on how this healing process works, here’s what we have to say.
One thing that freaks out my clients is the fact that some scabbing and “flaking” of the pigment is actually quite normal. Unfortunately, it may look like your brows are coming completely off – but don’t let it freak you out because some of it is normal.
Because of this confusing process we have created an outline to help you understand what is the normal microblading healing process.
On Day 1, you’re excited. HELLO NEW BROWS! You get to go into your artist’s studio with patchy uneven brows, or no brows at all – and voila! You come out with legitimate hair strokes that you want to show off to the world, literal #browgoals. They look textured, dense and a little bit red, but it’s a world of a difference, you feel like a changed person – your brows are bold in color. If you aren’t used to filling them in a lot, they will look slightly more dramatic in appearance than normal, tender, slightly swollen, and you may even experience some slight bleeding. The day you get them done you may be in awe of your fresh set of brows.
Your brows will actually get darker over this period of time, but don’t freak out! They will lighten again. Your brows will be reddish, still quite tender, and maybe even a little bit thicker in texture than the day before. You may really notice the difference in your brows and feel like people are looking at them, but chances are you’re more self-conscious about it rather than people noticing them being darker than normal. DAY 2 WILL BE PRETTY EASY.
This can be the turning point in the healing process, where your brows are getting itchy. During these days, your brows will be flaking and scabbing off. Make sure to NOT pick or remove the scabs or you may inadvertently remove some of your pigment as it may cause further irritation and worse, infection. Remember the the scabs will fall off by themselves when they are ready.
RESIST the urge to blow up your artist’s phone firing off questions and accusations alike. You have a wound on your face, therefore your body is trying to repair itself, hence the scabbing. It’s all apart of the healing process, and if you’ve had any other kind of tattoos in the past, it heals very similarly.
Your brows might seem that it has “fallen off”. It’s important to note that at this stage, the wounds should be closed so if you’re feeling self-conscious about the light look of them, but don’t worry worry because better days of your brows is yet to come. DO NOT PUT ANY MAKEUP on top of your healing brows as it may cause damage to your skin.
Your brows will be coming back, but will look patchy at first. But don’t get discouraged – BECAUSE THE HEALING IS ALMOST COMPLETE! Yes, you’re almost there! In just a matter of time, you’ll be settling into your new shortened makeup routine – oh, and imagine those waterproof brow beach days? Amazing.
Guess what? Your healing process is complete! Your skin is completely healed and all color is looking great. They should look soft and natural. 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 this is OKAY because your follow-up appointment should be just around the corner!
Browbeat artists recommends our clients to not come back for a follow-up microblading procedure until the skin is fully healed, and suggests 3 months after their initial procedure as the optimal time to come back for their follow-up!
