The Healing Process for Microblading

While every person is different and some heal more quickly or slowly than others, here’s generally what to expect following your eyebrow procedure:

Day 1  

The eyebrows are approximately 50% darker and 10-15% bolder in width than they will be when healed. Expect light to moderate swelling and redness. The skin’s redness causes the color of the pigment to appear darker. There is some swelling, although difficult to actually see due to the thickness of the skin in the eyebrow area. This will subside. Exfoliation, which begins in a few days, will cause the excess pigment surrounding the eyebrow to flake away and a more narrow appearance will result. New skin will heal over the pigmented area and result in a softer appearance of your eyebrows. Don’t be concerned that your eyebrows initially appear darker and heavier in size than you desire. This is all part of the process.

Day 2 

Conditions remain the same, do not worry! Trust the process.

Day 3 

Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.

Day 4 

The skin begins to flake, peeling from the outside edges first. Please do not pick at the scabs. 

Day 5 

Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until color clarifies.

Day 7 

The color has lightened from its initial overly-dark appearance. For the next few days, the color may now be lighter than what the final color will be. 


Day 8-10 

The final color begins to stabilize and show through.

Day 11 to 30 

Pigment can disappear and reappear after two weeks so please be patient with final results after 1 month.

Day 30 

Please book your follow-up appointment for your Touch-Up Session. After your touch-up session, the healing process is the same. The final results will show after your touch-up session!
