How Long Will My Microbladed Brows Last?
Microblading is considered semi-permanent. The pigments are designed to fade over time naturally and will not leave your brows looking blue or red like old conventional tattoos. Factors such as skin type, iron deficiency, life style, pigment color (lighter colors fade faster) and sun exposure can affect the rate at which these pigments are broken down. For best results, it is recommended that you follow our aftercare instructions and touch-up every 1-2 years or as often as needed. Microblading requires a minimum of two sessions. Touch-ups are normal and expected.
*Please note that final results cannot be guaranteed as everyone retains and breaks down pigment differently and follow-up appointments are recommended at 4-6 weeks so we can assess and make any changes necessary to your new semi-permanent brows.

The Healing Process of 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:
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.
Conditions remain the same, do not worry! Trust the process.
Eyebrows start to itch and will appear a bit thicker in texture. Exfoliation begins.
The skin begins to flake, peeling from the outside edges first. Please do not pick at the scabs.
Color finishes flaking off and appears softer and grayer for a few days until color clarifies.
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.
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.
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!
