Often this is a multiple step process, so do not expect your brows to heal correctly after your first session. Your eyebrows will appear different each day during the two week recovery period so be patient during this process. Right after the microblading, your brows will be darker and very defined for at least two weeks. It is also normal for your eyebrows to appear more robust and individual strokes may disappear.
After 4 or 5 days, you will notice flaking around the brow area but do not pick them for any reason. You need to let any dry skin fall off naturally. Anything pulled prematurely can result in missing hair strokes, which causes a patchy row appearance. Overall healing time will be between 6 and eight weeks, and when the flaking is complete, your brows may seem lighter. This is because a fresh layer of skin has grown over the microblading. Do not fret, after a few weeks; the hair strokes will become clear again.
You may experience itchy skin around the area for up to 10 days after the initial healing period is over which is a regular part of the healing dermal layer. The hair strokes will heal differently based on your skin type so do not expect yours to be as clean and crisp as your friend’s. Oily skin types tend to recover more solid and powdery looking while the dry skin heals more crisp and defined. If you also happen to bleed, then you may need more touch-ups than usual because of the blood rushes the pigment from the skin.
