Microblading Procedure

What to expect after your Microblading procedure

On Day 1

you’re excited. 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 albeit 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.

If you’re used to filling them in and are used to bolder brows, you may be in love. If not, do not panic. The permanent makeup has been applied to compensate for fading of 20-40%, so if they look darker than you normally wear your brows, stay calm, the color will fade over the next week.

DAY 2

You will try really hard not to sneeze, because of the multiple tiny papercut-like wounds but you will be okay! 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 3-4

By Day 3, you shouldn’t notice a huge difference from the previous two days, if anything, the pain and tenderness will start to subside, and the brows will get slightly dark or thicker, but nothing major. At this point, you’ll probably be loving the convenience of getting up and having instant brows without the hassle of having to create them yourself. You’ll likely find yourself daydreaming about beach days with completely waterproof brows, but don’t act on this at LEAST until day 10!

DAY 5

Day 5 is when things start to change. This can be the turning point in the healing process, where your brows are getting itchy and it is advised to NOT scratch them, as the wound may still be open. A thick layer of scabbing may form, and the fine hair-strokes that were created may be hidden. You may feel like you want to start panicking, but this is perfectly normal! You have a wound on your face, therefore your body is trying to repair itself, hence the scabbing. It’s all a part of the healing process, and if you’ve had any other kind of tattoos in the past, it heals very similarly.

DAY 5-7

This is the scary time period when the serious scabbing will start, and begin to peel away from the skin. If you’re anything like me – you will be extremely tempted to pick or peel the scabs. Don’t give in to this temptation, it could affect your healing very negatively. If you pick it, you could lose pigment that was deposited into the skin and could end up with a holy, patchy eyebrow. By gently rinsing the area regularly the scabs will slowly start to fall off – when they’re ready. This phase is definitely the hardest of the process. As a client looking on social media, I haven’t seen anyone talk about or show this side of the microblading healing process. All we see is perfectly fresh strokes, but scabbing? Who knew your entire eyebrow would shed and go through this transformation? It’s so important for clients to know and truly understand the whole process, and really be assured by their artist that what they experience is perfectly normal, and necessary for their eyebrows to heal properly.

At the end, they will have the brows they always wanted.

DAY 7-10

Your scabs will probably be all flaked off or flaking off on their own by this point and you’ll start to see the light at the end of the healing tunnel.  But because the skin has not completely mended itself back together, there may still be some cause for concern. The color during these days may seem way too light or even gray and missing in spots. You might feel like your skin didn’t take the pigment, but that’s not the case. They’ll almost look like you’ve filled them in with a powder, so again just remain as calm as possible and begin to start enjoying the fact that your eyebrows are done for you every morning. 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, you are able to apply some makeup to fill in for the time being.

Healing is almost complete! Yay! You’re almost there. The color and definition of the hair-strokes will return at this point. The color is beginning to even out and look more natural and brow-like. People you tell about the procedure won’t even believe that it’s a tattoo. It’s truly amazing!

DAY 30

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!

THIS TIME FRAME MAY NOT BE THE SAME FOR EVERYONE

It is highly recommended you get your touch up done between 4-6 weeks This is an important step that is required to get your brows looking great!

I can’t even begin to say how grateful I am to have found Neena to do the microblading and shading on my eyebrows. Since I was about 13 years old, I would draw my eyebrows on with makeup since my eyebows were scarce and super blonde. Neena changed all of that today. 12 years later I FINALLY have the eyebrows I’ve always wanted and it’s all thanks to Neena!! She was very detail oriented and made sure I was 100% happy with the result before leaving. Not to mention, she treats you like a friend, not a customer. I highly recommend Strokes of Genius Microblading.
