Your microblading healing process can definitely have its ups and downs.
The color may change over time as you heal and as your body accepts the pigment, but trust me when I say you will LOVE your results.
Use this guide so you know that what you are experiencing IS normal and everyone goes through something similar...
Day 1: I LOVE MY NEWS BROWS! Your brows are fresh, perfect and brand new. What's not to love?
Day 2-4: "These are way too dark and thick." Your brows will actually get darker over this period of time, but don't freak out! They will lighten again.
Day 5-8: During these days your brows may be flaking and scabbing off. Make sure to NOT pick or remove the scabs or you may inadvertently remove some of your pigment!
Day 9-10: "My brows have completely fallen off!!" Your brows will appear like they are completely gone during this time, but don't worry - they will still be there! And this is also why it's important to have your touch up.
Days 11-28: "My brows are coming back but they are patchy!" Your brows will appear to be patch and incomplete during this part of the healing process. Most of these patches will fill in over time but if for some reason some area doesn't take the touch up will help fill the gap so to speak.
Day 42 (after touch up): "These are better than I could have ever imagined!!!" And now you are back to the way you felt after the first day 📷 Trust me when I say that this is a real cycle.
Stick with it though and your results will be amazing!
