The healing process after microblading typically goes through several stages. Here's an overview of what you can expect during each phase:



1. Immediate Post-Procedure:

  • Right after the procedure, the treated area may appear darker and more defined than the final result. This is because the pigment is still on the surface of the skin.

  • Some redness and mild swelling around the eyebrows are normal.


2. First Few Days (Days 1-7):

  • The initial dark appearance will start to fade as the pigment is absorbed by the skin.

  • The treated area may feel tender, and there could be some redness and swelling. This is part of the normal healing process.

  • Scabbing may occur as the begins to repair itself. It's crucial not to pick at or scratch the scabs to prevent scarring and pigment loss.

  • Follow the aftercare instructions provided by your microblading artist, including applying the recommended ointment and avoiding water exposure.


3. Second Week (Days 8-14):

  • The scabbing will continue to diminish, and the color may appear lighter than immediately after the procedure.

  • The skin may still be sensitive, so continue to avoid activities that could irritate the healing skin, such as swimming or intense workouts.

  • Some clients may experience itching as the skin heals. Resist the urge to scratch, as this can disrupt the healing process.


4. Weeks 3-6:

  • The final results of microblading usually start to become apparent during this period.

  • The color may continue to soften and settle into the desired shade.

  • If you notice any areas that appear uneven or faded, this is the time to discuss them with your microblading artist during a touch-up appointment.


5. Touch-Up Appointment (Around Week 6-8):

  • A touch-up appointment is often recommended 6-8 weeks after the initial procedure. This allows the artist to address any areas that may need additional pigment and perfect the shape.

  • Touch-ups are normal and contribute to the longevity of the microblading results.



Remember, individual healing experiences can vary. It's essential to follow the specific aftercare instructions provided by your microblading artist and to reach out to them if you have any concerns or questions during the healing process
