Healing Process of Microblading Pinup Style
Here’s a visual to help you understand the different stages your brows will go through during the 6 week healing process!
There is no downtime after the appointment, you may have some slight redness but this should subside within a few hours to a day – you may go to work or continue your schedule as usual.
Please note that some pigment may rub off after the procedure so take precautions to protect good linens and towels.
Redness and swelling is minimal. The area may feel like a sunburn and may be itchy while healing but there should be minimal discomfort.
Your eyebrows will appear darker and more intense for the first few days. They will gradually lighten during the complete healing process.
Scabbing may occur – it is important NEVER to pick the scabs as you will pull out the pigment with the scab. Allow the scab or dry skin to come off on its own. Picking can cause scarring and premature loss of pigment.
IMPORTANT: Once the flakes have fallen off, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. It may appear as though the tattooed area has completely disappeared. Within 1-2 weeks, the hair strokes will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates.
The complete healing process takes about 6-8 weeks, at which time the true color is evident. During this process, your brows will soften and lighten. Be patient, even if you think too much color has been lost, as your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating.
A FEW WEEKS LATER
Wait at least 4 weeks to see the true color, as it seems to take on new strength, and it is only after 6-8 weeks that your touch-up/adjustment can be done.
It is completely normal for some strokes to disappear completely – these will be touched up during your next appointment
AFTER TOUCH UP
The process starts again! Once the 6-8 weeks have passed, you will have brows on fleek, allowing you to WAKE UP BEAUTIFUL!
Your eyebrow will eventually look softer and have more of a “powdered” look. This happens with all clients as the skin ages. To keep your hair strokes looking good, a refresher appointment is suggested every 10-15 months (8-10 months for oily skin). Results vary with each client.
