What to Expect After the Procedure
Your new microblading eyebrow will go through several phases during the healing cycle. Immediately, the pigment will appear very sharp and dark after the procedure. This is normal because the pigment is still sitting on top of your skin. It has not settled in completely yet. The color of the pigment will gradually soften. Do not be alarmed if you see some pigment come off, this is excess pigment and/ or body fluid that is naturally exiting your skin.
Once the healing of the skin starts taking place. It will look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might make you feel the color pigment is fading too fast, however, this is excess color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows. Apply a layer of sunscreen SPF 30 up to SPF 50 on your eyebrows when being exposed to the sun when completely healed. Not a really oily sunscreen if your skin type is on the oilier side, as this could push the pigment out. Sun exposure will also cause the color pigment to fade away more quickly.
Immediately after the procedure, you must clean your brows and moisten them with distilled water to wipe any built up liquids. Apply healing balm daily in the morning and evening for the next 5-7 days. During the first two weeks of healing, avoid having your face and brows in water. When showering, avoid direct water contact with your eyes and eyebrows. Don’t use eyebrow pencils and makeup during the healing period and avoid all swimming, tanning, pools and saunas, and facial scrubs and peels. You invested in the best-microblading brows, so make sure you care for them correctly by following your microblading artist’s aftercare instructions carefully.

Always Touch Up your Eyebrows
Most things usually last longer with a little maintenance and regular touch up, this applies to your bold new brows too. You will notice better and longer lasting results if you follow your scheduled touch-up appointment after the microblading process. Your next appointment will be scheduled within four to six weeks. This “break” gives your skin time to heal following the hair refilling process. It will take a few weeks for your brows to heal and about one month for the semi-permanent color to fully settle into the skin. The color appears quite dark in the beginning but fades with the healing process. This will create a softer, more desirable shade.
These touch-ups include refilling- if certain areas did not properly retain the pigment. Color re-shading- everyone’s skin types absorb pigmentation differently and may require deeper shading. Brow refining and redefinition if necessary. Each individual’s skin type will determine how long their inked in brows will last. But brows will last from one to three years, and regular maintenance will definitely ensure you your best look.
