Eyebrow Healing Process

Microblading Eyebrow Healing Process

For a fantastic set of eyebrows, you need knowledge about microbalding eyebrow tattoo healing to exercise better care.

I am always in close contact with my guest during their healing process. YES, this is a process. Since I receive so many questions on healing, I thought it would be a great topic to touch on, also letting you know what to expect before you come in for a procedure. I will answer my most frequently asked questions for the main procedures of Permanent Makeup. I will touch on 3D Hair Stroke Eyebrows, Microblade Eyebrows, Ombre eyebrows. First let me hit on the things to AVOID for any of the procedures you may be considering.

  • Tanning, swimming, applying makeup to area – 2 WEEKS
  • Compressing your face into the pillow while sleeping- 48 hours
  • Workouts or strenuous activity- 2-7 days (depending on procedure)
  • Exposing the area to full water pressure in the shower- 3days

NO WATER FOR MICROBLADE EYEBROWS -7 DAYS

1. 3D Hair Stroke Eyebrows

With the Hair Stroke Eyebrow procedure, you will expect the pigment to fade around 20 – 30% and soften a bit after healing of the 1st session. You will be able to ice your brows the 1st few days after the procedure to reduce any swelling or discomfort you may have. I advise you to use a thin layer of Aquafor on your brows 2-3 x’s per day for around 5-7 days. Scabs that dry out or are rubbed, picked, scratched or pulled off will take longer to heal and could result in pigment loss. For the most part this eyebrow healing really is very simple for guests. Here is a Before, Immediately After and Healed Photo of the 3D brows.

2. Microblade Eyebrows

With Micro blading, it is important to follow aftercare instructions carefully. Microblade Eyebrow pigment will fade around 40 -50%. You CANNOT get the brow area wet for 7 days, post procedure. Water may expand your lines resulting in thicker lines than desired. I advise not doing anything to them for 48-72 hours. After 72 hours, you may use a VERY THIN layer of Aquafor on the brows 1-2 times a day. You want the brows to breathe but NOT dry out. (If you have oily skin or feel the need than you may want to use a dab of alcohol or witch hazel to cleanse the eyebrows and remove excess oil.) Oily skinned guests need not do anything else with them for 7 days. After the 7 day, healing you may use grapeseed or jojoba oil on them sparingly. Here is a diagram I found online that documents the healing process well. You will start by thinking “Uh oh, maybe too dark?” than day 5-8 “WHOA WAY TOO DARK” on day 8ish you’ll think “I think it all fell off?” Around 2-4 weeks the color will finalize and you will feel Happy! Due to natural skin regeneration healing differs in everyone. You will need a 2nd and possibly a 3rd session to perfect your microblade eyebrows.
