Microblading procedures normally require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results you will be required to return for at least one touch up procedure within four to six weeks after the initial application.
Age and thickness of skin matters. Older, thinner skin has more difficulty holding pigment. Unhealthy skin, smokers and sun abuse will make it harder to hold. Oily skin also poses certain challenges as it does not retain color well
Once the healing has begun,
- Some hair strokes may superficially disappear only to reappear within 10 days. Any strokes that don't re-appear will be added back at the follow-up appointment
- Color intensity will be significantly sharper and darker the next few days after the procedure. This will subside and become softer as the skin heals
- Eyebrows will lighten in one to two weeks. The day of service the pigment is put in the dermal layer and it also stains the epidermis (outer layer) that exfoliates off in three to five days. The new skin underneath will need additional two to three weeks to fully heal.
- Skin will begin to look like dandruff flakes or dry skin. This might give you the impression that the color pigment is fading too quickly. However, this is just superficial color and dry skin being naturally removed from your eyebrows
