Depending on the clients skin, please allow freshly microbladed eyebrows 7 to 10 days to heal, give or take. It is normal for the eyebrows to look patchy during the healing process. Don't be worried if the strokes have disappeared, it takes the pigment roughly four to six weeks to resurface. Any permanent gaps of color will be corrected at your touch up appointment (included in your initial fee).
You'll need to follow the after care instructions and avoid any picking or scratching. Your eyebrows will start to heal over, much like a tattoo, which might cause irritation but is totally normal.
In the next ten days or so your eyebrows will change color, might become flaky and look like they've faded but this is totally normal. They'll reveal their final color and shape after around 30 days. This can then be topped up at the second session.
Microblading lasts anywhere between 12-18 months, but the longevity of the pigment will depend on your skin type. People with slightly more oily skin will tend to last around the 12 month mark before needing a top up, but those with normal skin can last up to 18 months.
Your brows will eventually fade away if you don’t continue with top ups every 18 months or so. There is no scaring or discoloration with the pigments used, so you wouldn’t know if you left them to fade out.
You may expect thick brows but it might take a few appointments before you reach your ideal brows.
“You should keep in mind that microblading is a two to four step process depending on the skin and it is not permanent, and you shouldn’t expect to see full results after only one treatment."
"The strokes are very sharp initially, but will soften and migrate into the skin over time. You should take into consideration that different skin types also factor into results. Excessively oily skin, larger pores, thicker skin and eyebrow keratosis can affect the absorption of the pigment.”
