The Microblading Healing Process
Your new semi-permanent microbladed eyebrows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
Initially, your brows may seem too be too red and too large. Don’t be alarmed. We have just worked the skin and its 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 yet settled in completely. The color of the pigment will soften gradually. The scabbing process will also make the brows appear darker. Stay calm, all of this will lighten in a week or so. The color will eventually be 30 - 50% lighter.

Once the healing starts to take place, it will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin (days 5-7). This might give the impression that the color is fading too quickly, however, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows.
Some strokes will disappear and re-appear in 2-3 weeks. Not all strokes will remain, they will get replaced at the touch-up session. You will feel some itching, but try to resist! Learn if you're a good candidate for eyebrow microblading.
Day 1: OMG!! I’m in love with my new brows. Thank you!
Day 2 - 4: I don’t like this color, it’s too dark
Day 5-7: Oh no! My brows are scabbing and falling off.
Day 8-10: WTF? My brows are gone!
Day 14 - 28: Thank goodness my brows are coming back! Still looking patchy and uneven.
Day 42 (after touch-up): My brows are beautiful, I love them!
