Microblading is changing people’s lives - creating convenience, building confidence, and letting people sleep in longer in the morning - seriously. Having the opportunity to have a microblading procedure took 20 minutes off of my makeup routine every morning.


But with social media showcasing people’s airbrushed lives, artists and clients tend to showcase perfect, immediately after work, often leaving out the raw experience and the ups and downs that go along with the healing of permanent makeup.


Showing the results just immediately after a procedure is not the same as showing the entire process, and can leave client’s who get the procedure with A TON of questions about their healing process.


The procedure itself is only about 10% of the true microblading experience, and the next 30 -60 days after are the real deal.


So for anyone considering a procedure, and for artists who want to show their clients what they can expect during healing, below is the real experience of the healing process for the first month - the good, the bad, and the scabbing.


For a detailed look at my aftercare instructions as per Tina’s recommendation see our blog post on Prepare & Aftercare



Here is my natural eyebrows - pre-microblading:


 

DAY 1


On Day 1, you're excited. You get to go into your artist’s studio with patchy uneven brows, or no brows at all and voila, you come out with legitimate hair strokes that you want to show off to the world, literal #browgoals. They look textured, dense albeit a little bit red, but it’s a world of a difference, you feel like a changed person.Your brows are bold in color. If you aren’t used to filling them in a lot, they will look slightly more dramatic in appearance than normal, tender, slightly swollen, and you may even experience some slight bleeding. The day you get them done you may be in awe of your fresh set of brows.


If you’re used to filling them in and are used to bolder brows, you may be in love. If not, do not panic. The permanent makeup has been applied to compensate for fading of 20-40%, so if they look darker than you normally wear your brows, stay calm, the color will fade over the next week.  


Here are my immediately after results:




DAY 2

You will try really hard not to sneeze, because of the multiple tiny papercut-like wounds on your face, but I had mine done during allergy season, and there’s no avoiding it. Your brows will be reddish, still quite tender, and maybe even a little bit thicker in texture than the day before. You may really notice the difference in your brows and feel like people are looking at them, but chances are you’re more self-conscious about it rather than people noticing them being darker than normal.


At this point, I really loved the way that they looked and was super happy with them. I could still see every hair stroke that was made and the redness for me had subsided a lot. They had not started to form hard thick scabs yet. Day 2 was pretty easy.


DAY 3-4

By Day 3, you shouldn’t notice a huge difference from the previous two days, if anything, the pain and tenderness will start to subside, and the brows will get slightly dark or thicker, but nothing major. At this point, you’ll probably be loving the convenience of getting up and having instant brows without the hassle of having to create them yourself. You’ll likely find yourself daydreaming about beach days with completely waterproof brows, but don’t act on this at LEAST until day 10!


DAY 5

Day 5 is when things start to change. This can be the turning point in the healing process, where your brows are getting itchy and it is advised to NOT scratch them, as the wound may still be open. A thick layer of scabbing may form, and the fine hair-strokes that were created may be hidden. You may feel like you want to start panicking. RESIST the urge to blow up your artist’s phone firing off questions and accusations alike. You have a wound on your face, therefore your body is trying to repair itself, hence the scabbing. It’s all apart of the healing process, and if you’ve had any other kind of tattoos in the past, it heals very similarly.


Just know that this is totally normal and even if it doesn’t look pretty, you shouldn’t worry, they’re going to be #browgoals again in no time. Here’s what mine looked like on Day 5:

 

DAY 5-7

This is the scary time period when the serious scabbing will start, and begin to peel away from the skin. If you’re anything like me - you will be extremely tempted to pick or peel the scabs. Don’t give in to this temptation, it could affect your healing very negatively. If you pick it, you could lose pigment that was deposited into the skin and could end up with a holy, patchy eyebrow. By gently rinsing the area regularly the scabs will slowly start to fall off - when they’re ready. This phase is definitely the hardest of the process. As a client looking on social media, I haven’t seen anyone talk about or show this side of the microblading healing process. All we see is perfectly fresh strokes, but scabbing? Who knew your entire eyebrow would shed and go through this transformation? It’s so important for clients to know and truly understand the whole process, and really be assured by their artist that what they experience is perfectly normal, and necessary for their eyebrows to heal properly.

the end, they will have the brows they always wanted.

 

 


DAY 7-10


Your scabs will probably be all flaked off or flaking off on their own by this point and you’ll start to see the light at the end of the healing tunnel.  But because the skin has not completely mended itself back together, there may still be some cause for concern. The color during these days may seem way too light or even gray and missing in spots. You might feel like your skin didn’t take the pigment, but that’s not the case. They’ll almost look like you’ve filled them in with a powder, so again just remain as calm as possible and begin to start enjoying the fact that your eyebrows are done for you every morning. It’s important to note that at this stage, the wounds should be closed so if you’re feeling self-conscious about the light look of them, you are able to apply some makeup to fill in for the time being.

 


DAY 14-21

Healing is almost complete! Yay! You’re almost there. The color and definition of the hair-strokes will return at this point. The color is beginning to even out and look more natural and brow-like. People you tell about the procedure won’t even believe that it’s a tattoo. It’s truly amazing. You’ll be settling into your new shortened makeup routine - oh and those waterproof brow beach days? Amazing.

DAY 30

Guess what? Your healing process is complete! Your skin is completely healed and all color is looking great. They should look soft and natural. This is the point where you’ll be able to tell if there is anything you want to add or change, there could be a couple spots from loss of pigment, which is all dependent on how well your skin took the pigment, but this is OKAY because your follow-up appointment should be just around the corner!

Tina recommends that a client does not come back for a follow-up microblading procedure until the skin is fully healed, and suggests 3 months after their initial procedure as the optimal time to come back for their follow-up!

All in all my experience with microblading was amazing! Through the ups and downs of the healing process, I was always assured that everything happening was normal, and was guided on how to take proper care to ensure the best results!

Hopefully, this guide to a typical healing experience is helpful to artists looking to give client's an in-depth look at what they can expect!

Hi! You saved me from the eyebrow ledge! LOL. I am on day 7. I have seen scans for a week and just now got to wash my hair. This morning the scans you talk about are starting to flake off ever so slightly and to my dismay it looks like I did nothing on the tiny area that is finally showing through. I was horrified. You are right. My skin looks faded as grey on the tiny patch of scab that flakes off. Thank you for giving me hope that the color of the procedure “espresso mixed with dark blonde” will ultimately show through after the skin regeneration. I am counting the days till this is over. I will be happy to show you pictures as I too am taking photos day by day. Thank you! Absolutely the best article out there and you are beautiful by the way.

Thank you for this read, wish I had read before my freak out/meltdown around day 5 & thought my flakey eyebrows were completely falling off my face. I agree the photos that follow the procedure gave me a false sense of what I thought my brows would look like and wish there were more photos or stories of what the brows look like in the weeks that follow. Appreciate this article!

So I am a guy with half brows so decided to have them Microbladed. It was pretty painful but absolutely worth it. Looked like a cartoon character for a few days but now on day 18 and they look so natural. My advice is get someone who really knows what they are doing. Your face is your fortune – don’t settle for second best.
Plan the process in advance so that you don’t have appointments for at least a week thereafter.Don’t pick, don’t scratch or get them wet – buy a cap lol

I’m so glad I found this article. I had my microblading done 1 week ago. They are scabbing at this point and this morning I completely freaked when I washed them with a cotton pad and a bunch of the hair stroke came off. I legit thought I messed them up. I text my artist and she said it was normal and part of the process. I trust her but it is so reassuring to read this and see all the pictures. As for the procedure itself it was not painful at all. But after the numbing cream wears off after the procedure they feel like a bunch of tiny paper cuts and it stings but nothing really painful just uncomfortable.

I had mine done yesterday. My tech numbed my brows before each pass. She told me what to expect. She stressed leaving the scabs to heal on their own. This process is exactly how she described. I got the hairlike strokes with out the shading also.

I just got my brows done 2 days ago (microblade and shade) and I was so shocked at how dark and thick they were- I almost cried at the salon!! I’m so glad I read your blog and all the other comments saying they felt the same!! Just have to get through the next 2 weeks and it’ll be OK ( keep telling myself that!!) The shape is beautiful- just so so so dark and waxy I feel like someone sharpied my face LOL the things we do for beauty!!

Thank you so much for your blog. I have searched high and low and even for youtube videos of people talking about their experience the way you have. I got my brows microbladed on Dec 5, 2018. I went through the stages like you did. Day 1-3 they were very very dark and plastic looking. On day 4 I had a lot of itching and by day 5 when I applied my ointment I noticed small patches coming off with the hair strokes in it. I think I applied too much ointment. I did the dry method and only applied ointment every other day because I have oily skin. When it peeled it looked very light, almost grayish. I have worried myself that maybe it didn’t take. I thought about the money I just wanted. I decided to just hope for the best. Over the days it began to change colors to the point it looks like leftover brow filler from the night before. It is Dec 12 as I type this and I go back in 4 weeks and I hope the process takes better. I can’t see where anyone else lost all their strokes like me though. Is this common?

December 11, 2018

I’m really happy I found this – my aftercare sheet and what to expect really didn’t explain it this way. I’ve been coming back and reading this often to keep myself calm (lol!). Today is day 9 for me and most of the scabbing is done but the strokes look WAY too light. I’m excited for them to darken and for my follow up appointment in a few months.

I really needed to read this. I had mine done last week 11/21/2018 and Im on day 6 and Omg they are horrible. I was told to not wash or put anything on it ? Is that a thing? Thanks

I had my brows microbladed for the third time 4 days ago. Having been through the healing process twice already, I do have some things to say. The first time I got them done, my tech matched my natural hair color perfectly, however they healed really light even several weeks afterwards and looked as if I didn’t even have the procedure done at all. I don’t have the best skin type (semi oily) so it’s very possible my skin did not take the ink very well. The second time I got them done, I had my tech go a shade darker to anticipate some fading in the healing process and was in-love with the end result! I will say there are many factors on how your brows will turn out: the healing care is the biggest factor. I’ve heard mixed reviews on if you should/shouldn’t get your brows wet during the healing period, the second time I got his done I avoided water at all costs and I noticed a huge difference in the turnout. As far as the procedure itself, my tech continuously numbed my brows but I’m almost positive I may be immune to that brand because I could feel every single stroke (yikes!); if you have tattoos it’s essentially the same feeling. To push through, I just reminded myself pain is temporary and it will be worth it, which it totally is! Can’t wait to see this turnout.

I am so grateful I just found this article! I got my eyebrows done an hour ago and I’m soo regreting it! I feel they look so dark and waxy, it’s not what I was expecting:( I am very self conscious right now and like the other comments, I feel like everyone is staring at me right now.
Your post give me some peace in thinking that this is the normal process and I will love them in the end. I will continue to pray.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed blog ❤️

I had my eyebrows microbladed yesterday along with 2nd application of eyeliner and full lip color. There was no pain involved with any of it. Every now and then a slight discomfort but numbing cream was reapplied continuously throughout the process for each procedure. I was given “after ink” ointment to apply to my eyebrows as a very thin layer and was told to wash eye liner with baby shampoo and use Cetaphil soap or other antibacterial soap for my eyebrows and lips. Apply very vaseline to lips in very thin layer. Dry healing my eyes since my first application didn’t seem to hold a much ink.

I had my initial microblading done in September the color faded a bit. My follow up was 5 days ago and I’m at the scabbing phase. Both times it was painful almost unbearable the first pass.The person doing the microblading says you cant be numbed the first pass. She does 3 passes. On the 2nd pass its bearable but by the 3rd it starts to get a little uncomfortable again. I dont know if that’s the norm or this is just how she was trained. I think I might need a touchup after this is healed because the brows look uneven. I think I will go somewhere I’m numbed before the procedure

I’m glad you explained day 5-10 because like you said not many people post Bout that, but that’s when everyone freaks out. I’m at day 7 and have begun flaking and I see no color or as if the color hasnt took, I actually see lightly color skin. So what do I do start researching. People should talk about it more and show pictures…because I did read that it MAY APPEAR as if the color is not there but that’s because the TOP layer of skin has not form yet. And it will in due time. The Human body how amazing it heals itself. And people should be educated especially around this phase of the healing process. I already see that at day 10 I’ll be filling in for awhile until my follow up. Because I’m already looking crazy at work. So thank you for the helpful explanation.

I had my brows done first 9 weeks ago. I had my touch up last week. I first had microblading done and it looked wonderful until all the scabs came off and I had lots of patching. My color did not stay well at all and I’m not sure if it was because my brows are so light or what. I just went back last week for a touch-up and she decided to do shading instead. I like the way this looks but again I am having so much scabbing on the inner brows and it looks like there won’t be any color staying again. Very disappointing because I was so excited to get this done. Not sure if I will try again or not.
As far as the pain of the procedure, it was not painful AT ALL! She numbed me up very well so if people are saying it is painful it is because their esthetician did not numb them or didn’t numb them enough.

October 17, 2018

By far THE best microblading experience explanation ever. I got mine done exactly a week ago and I’m going through the peeling process and I almost gave it and wiped it off but I realized it’s not a night and day process. Thanks for taking the time and letting us know the behind the scenes!

Thank you for your blog post! I am on day 2. I am a redhead and I feel like a drag queen right now. I woke up at 4am and had a panic attack when I saw them in the mirror – I couldn’t believe how dark and thick they where, couldnt get back to sleep, totally regretted it and manically started googling in bed how I could get rid of them quickly. I was so embarrassed the next day I had to leave the house. I emailed by technician the following day telling her they were awful and that I was devastated (overly emotional!!!!) she reassured me that this was NORMAL and that I was to give it time and they would fade out soon. I even went and bought hairdresser scissors to cut in a fringe.. luckily my friends stopped and said they were not as bad as I thought, but my husband said they were really dark and didn’t understand why I wanted to do that to myself ;-) I will keep coming back to your blog throughout to reassure myself as its all very well when someone tells you but you dont really mentally prepare yourself for it until it happens. Thank you again!!

I had my brows done 3 days ago and love them. It did not hurt at all. The nurse used numbing cream. I do have a touch up appointment in 3 weeks. So glad I did this.

October 02, 2018

The is the best description about the healing process I read online. I am at day 5 the scabs are starting to fall off and those areas look soooo much lighter but your comments make me fell more confident that they will darken once healing is complete. As for the pain I felt NONE. My artist was very skilled and used a numbing cream. The waxing beforehand hurt more than the actual microblading. Do your research when choosing an artist!!!

I just had my brows done a few minutes ago and was looking for photos regarding the aftercare. For everyone saying it was extremely painful, I think your artist may have needed to keep reapplying numbing cream. Any time my numbing cream was getting weak and I could start to feel the strokes I let my artist know and she would reapply more. It was virtually painless after the first initial application of numbing cream with the blade…

I had mine done about 5 days ago and I I am having that patchy look where I’m afraid they’re coming off. I I am commenting because of all of the previous comments that said it was painful. I seriously had no pain during or after. I haven’t had any itching or anything. I wonder if that’s a bad sign LOL should it have been.. does that mean the artist didn’t go deep enough?

I had it done 16 days ago. They look really good. Almost zero scabbing. The shock of it was the level of pain! I didn’t cry but I wasn’t sure if I could finish. Childbirth and foot surgery were the only other time I screamed like that. It was so bad. Any one who says that it hurts just a little here and there is lying! I’m reading that the touch up appt hurts even more? Well I may be skipping that. I can’t handle more than what I went through the first session.

Your brows are gorgeous. I just had mine done a little over 24 hours ago. The procedure was extremely painful, as I don’t think the numbing cream worked. The shape and size are beautiful but the color is not right. We went with medium brown but they now have a red tint to them. I don’t like it. I thought it was from my skin being raw but it appears to be the color pigments. I am guessing I’ll have to live with this for a couple of months through the healing process. I hope to get my brow tech to correct the color when I get the touch up done. Not looking forward to this long healing process. Thank you for sharing your experience, it will help to know what I’m in for. I just hope the end result will be worth the pain, time, and money spent.

Omg, thank you for this post!!! I’m on day 6 and starting to see the scabs and a little patchy spots but my technician gave me a paper of do’s and dont’s and a paper of what to expect thru the healing process. Hearing you describe the same makes me feel so much more comfortable and now trusting the healing process! I actually fell asleep during the last hour as my tech kept applying the numbing cream thru the process and it totally worked for feeling any pain! She was very clear and open for any questions or comments and had me check my brows a few times to make sure it was the shape and darkness i wanted! I love them!! Totally cuts down on the makeup process in the morning. Can’t wait to see the end result after the touch up, patience is a virtue that’s for sure! Thanks again!

I honestly, just got mines done yesterday And they are thick and dark …. i am a light skin Dominican — these eyebrows are sooooo dark that I’m so afraid to go out… I called out of work… literally… I hope that they get lighter because right now I look terrible…. I look like a drag queen….

Firstly, I wanted to say your beautiful!! Secondly, thank you so much for this blog post. I came across this post when I was researching microblading and the process. I was ever so lucky to have someone I know do my brows which made everything so much easier. Every day that I had any moments of “OMG why did I do this to my face” I would look back at this post and be reminded its just the healing process, so it helped a lot :) I have already done my touch up and now am on day 7 – this time we discussed darkening the color and adding to the shape and I immediately loved it more than the first time, that even when it got darker I wanted it to stay that dark lol…overall this is a great procedure because it allows you to feel better and even wear less make up.
thanks so much for your great post xo

July 16, 2018

I am now on day 6 of my touch up. After my first session very little pigment stayed she even mentioned this when I came in for the touch-up. I contacted her before then sating that alot of the pigment is fading. Her post care instructions are not getting them wet for 14 days and applying Aquaphor if they feel dry.

Can this be the reason they are not staying? You recommend washing the eyebrows every day. I am wondering if I should start doing this now in hopes of the pigment staying better this time.

Any advice would be great.

Definitely helping me to read your day by day. Day 5 for me and although dark, knowing will lighten some helps. Looks like some bladed brow skin same off today during gentle cleaning. Is this normal? I’m saving to show my brow gal. Thanks again! My first ever post.

I had my first and only microblading procedure on 6/29/18. It was excruciatingly painful. Unbearable. I was literally crying throughout the appointment. The aesthetician told me I bled much heavier than anyone and she couldn’t see clearly her markings and was “working blind”. Needless to say the result was horrible. One eyebrow higher than the other. Patchy. Unattractive shape. I wish I never had it done.

My friend and I had ours done 2 days ago. We had to get over the initial shock. We were both freaking out and yes….we should have googled so we could get to this page before we got microblading. Going on day 3 and I have a concert to go to on day 5 so I’m worried I’ll look like a crazy woman. My friend has wore hats and I just decided to brave it and pray my coworkers didn’t notice. So far so good. I have original hairs poking up everywhere and it’s driving me crazy. Coconut oil won’t even lay them down. (That’s what we were instructed to use) I wished we were on day 30 Already. This is very scary. However, we are trusting the process and praying!!!!!

Can someone let me know if the shape is suppose to change? I’m on day three, and i just noticed an hour ago that the shape on one of my brows is different than the other. I have video and picture of immediately after and the day after. The brow were exactly the same. Now my right brow the front is lower or thinner and it looks like now i have two different brows when they weren’t like that this morning or the past couple of days… and now I’m worrying and feeling anxious about it

Had my procedure done and went through the 6 week period. Went back and I did not like the brush look I wanted a full brow. My girl filled in what I wanted but now I see that one corner abov my eye is square and the other is round. Plus you can see my stubby thin eyebrows under the micro blading. Going back again in 2 weeks I hope this can be fixed with not much scabing again I have a wedding to go to in 5 weeks

I’m on Day 5 and they’re starting to itch like crazy! Still really dark, but no patchiness or flaking yet. I’m panicking a bit because they’re still darker than I like, but trying to remain calm. I’m Matron-of-Honor in my sister’s wedding July 21st so hopefully they lighten up by then. I experienced no pain during the procedure. After the procedure I felt a bit of a burning sensation, but very tolerable. Kind of like a sunburn. I bled very little and had no redness or swelling after.

Monica

July 05, 2018

Thanks for your posting it does help with what to expect. I’m at day 5 and have only experienced some itching. My brow tech recommended a cream 2-4 times a day for 7 days. To date I’ve had no scabbing or peeling. My brows do appear a little dark, so I look forward to the lightening. I’m very pleased with the overall result. I’m not good with pain at all but found the procedure to be painful but tolerable.

Mamacita

July 05, 2018

WHY did you all have the procedure done without researching it first?? If you had, you’d see what the healing process looks like and could have saved yourself some stress and anxiety. I couldn’t imagine having something like this done without knowing EXACTLY what would happen day by day. No wonder you’re all panicked!

Liv

July 05, 2018

Thank you for this! I always look back to it for reassurance during this process. Although right now I’m freaking out and can’t sleep that’s why I’m commenting- I’m on day 10 and itched my brow in a half sleepy state and I immediately realized what I was doing and ran to the bathroom and a chunk was missing (I hope you all are picturing this lolol) please please tell me it’ll come back I mean it’s been ten days of me not touching it the pigment has to be there right ?!?!? Sorry for the dramatics but it’s big money to do this and as many people have mentioned- no one mentions these phases!! So again thank you for this post!

Thank you for this post. I had my brows done yesterday and look ridiculous. My brows were pretty sparse before so I am now in shock. The technician made them dark to allow for fading. I actually cut bangs on my hair today so I can cover them up until they heal and fade. And glasses work also!! I really hoping that then end product will be worth it!

I’m on day 2. So dark and just ugly right now. I feel like I’m all eyebrow. Thanks for sharing this. Helps me see the light at the end of the eyebrow tunnel. 😊

Great Post. Thanks… I had brow & eyelid tattoos years ago so I understood healing process somewhat. Had mine done 6/25… so far so good.

EVERYONE who gets microblading done should read this. Absolutely accurate and a clear representation.

I’m in day 2 and my brows are too thick and dark! I’m canceling tomorrow’s plans for lunch because i feel too embarrassed to leave the house! Hoping all I’ve read is true and they will relax and get smaller by the weekend. I’m freaking out!

Thanks so much for this information. It makes me feel better. I’m on my day 9 and I’m super upset yesterday when everything was patchy amd people were staring at them at my beauty salon where i had my highlights done. Today, I don’t even wanna get out of the house since they’re not fully pealed but it’s nice to know that this is normal and it will get better. As far as the pain during the process, yes, there is definitely discomfort and at the end there were “on fire” but it’s tolerable. I didn’t really had any pain after the process.

I had my first stage done on the 10th May 18. The colour was called Milk and I knew instantly it was going to be to light!
The healing was horrible with scabbs and patches. By the time I went back for my touch up yesterday 22 June 2018 they were hardly noticable! Anyway my technition went darker like I asked and now I am freaking as they are so much darker! It hurt so much more then the first time! 2nd day in and it looks thick dark and ridiculous! I am confidant they will fade. What healing procesure do you reccomend ? My technician has suggested ointment 3 x a day for 3 weeks. But Ive read most people reccomend dry healing? I am really confused on which one to do! Please help and let me known what I should be doing ?

Thank you for sharing this. I really needed to hear someone mention the “flaking/falling off”. I’ve searcged everywhere and no one talks about it. I was beginning to be afraid. I really needed this!

Amelia

June 19, 2018

Thank you for the information, I had mines done on 06/15/18 this is my second day and they look dark and thick. I hope they fade a little cause all I see is dark thick eyebrows. I’m worried! Feel ichy and I just want to scratch them off…

June 19, 2018

Thank you for posting your experience. I left the salon 7 hours ago and I’m sitill panicking about the powder shading, overthinking it and feeling very self conscious about my brows being very dark. Reading your post has reassured me that time is my friend and to be patient, something I’m not good at!

I was reassured it would lighten 50% and I need to trust the process. Your photos and stages of healing were just what I needed this evening. Thank you!

Alicia

June 14, 2018

Thanks for this ! I’m on day 10 currently ! Almost all the scabs are gone, and I have one patchy spot that’s bothering me. Hopefully in the next week everything will look awesome. Can’t wait to see what they look like within the next few months and after my touch up

Hello my question is wen I’m due for my touch up will I have to go Through the same healing process again

Tammy

June 19, 2018

Thank you for making us aware of the healing process.. Everyday, I looked at brows… I wanted to cry… I’m on day 6. First, they were way to dark and then I felt like they didn’t take.. I’m sure your post has reassured so many people… And kept so many from calling our brow tech.
One of mine is more rounded than the other… Like in your 14-21 pic… Did they fix this on your 6 week follow up??

Flora

June 19, 2018

Today is my second day . To me the look thick and dark . My hair is mix blonde and it just make me look like Frida Kahlo !
Did not hurt a bit but I don’t want anyone to see me like this , so your explanation of day by day helped , I was bigining to think a made a terrible mistake
I use a small amount of crean to help the healing as I was told , only a little . I really hope this will pass as to me they look so dark . Thank you

Leticia

Thanks so much for posting this. I am considering the procedure and just knowing the approximate timeline for healing is super helpful.

Nilsa

June 19, 2018

Hello,
I think it’s really upsetting that people are lead to believe that your eyebrows are healed and perfect after the touch up. I started the process on 3/29/18, and did the touch up on 5/16/18. At this time the healing process repeats itself for another 30 days. Today is 6/4/18 and my brows just about peeled. They aren’t near perfect as of yet, but I do see improvement. I really hope the pain is worth the money and time.

Sarah

June 19, 2018

Thankyou for your post!!! my eyebrows (day 9) look nothing like whats dipicted in some of the posts ive read so i was panicing and refuseing to leave the house and when i do im apologiseing to strangers for my eyebrows….mine look terrible compared to yours and i cant see alot of brow strokes its a process not a walk in and walk out with amazing brows thats for sure.

Erin

May 28, 2018

Thanks for your post. I just had the retouch this week. It hurt more the second time I think. Whoever says the pain level is low is a liar. To me, this was the worst pain I’ve ever felt, and I’ve had piercings and a baby! The constant noise of the cutting drove me insane, and the cream didn’t seem to ever numb me enough. My brows look great, however I will be curious to see them in about six months to a year, to justify if it was worth the pain and money.

Elaine Dennis

I’ve been researching microblading, as my brow goddess told me to do. Thank you for your daily/weekly aftercare for the brows. I’m definitely getting it done and will update you on my procedure. Thank u 😀

I needed to read this! Today is day 5 for my brows and the scabs are falling off and now I have patches that look really awful! I have been upset all day. I didn’t know that this was normal. I’ll try to be patient for my my touch up. Hopefully they look good in the end.

I have never posted online in my life, but I just had to say a huge THANK YOU for posting this. Day 5 here and was starting to get worried the color didn’t take on my brows. It’s one thing to read the after-care instructions that say briefly they may be lighter today, but so much more reassuring to see your day-by-day photos. Thank you so much for posting this!!!!

Joelie

May 03, 2018

Thank you for this! I am in day 5 and mayor scabbing is forming and I see a few patches here and there, oh.. and it itches!!! But thanks to your blog, I know I shouldn’t have to worry. Thanks a million!

Thank you for this step by step of the healing process. I haven’t found one photo of the peeling phase and was starting to freak out

Andrea

May 03, 2018

WOW – thank you soooo much for the day-by-day, especially the photos. I just had mine done today, (5/1/18), I’ll try to remember to breathe for the next 30 days !!!! :-)

P.S. I’ll probably re-read your comments for the next 30 days!

ashley

May 03, 2018

I needed this! I’m on day 5/6 and I have itchy brows that look patchy. Whew… I’ve been upset all day until this read, feeling much better.

Ivana

May 03, 2018

Thanks for sharing – no one talks about the awkward stages! Similar to another person above, the process was actually surprisingly painful for me as well. It wasn’t unmanageable but it definitely didn’t feel like threading, as some people would describe. Maybe threading on steroids. I’ve been told the touch up visit can be more painful than the first visit as some of the cuts may not have have fully healed. I’m on day 4 and still loving the shape and colour; though they are a little thin for my liking and I plan to correct that in the second visit. Can’t wait for #browgoals!

Daniela Garibay

May 03, 2018

Thank you for this, I feel so much relief after reading this, got my brows done today and felt just as you described.
Honestly it was great of you to let us know!
By the way your’s are definitely #browgoals

Thanks so much for this! I’m currently on day 6 and my brows are peeling and looking patchy so it’s great to hear this is normal!

April 27, 2018

Thank you so much for a very informative blog. To be honest if I had read this before microblading my brows I may not have done it. But your photos look beautiful through the entire healing process and now I’m excited to see the end result. My experience was somewhat painful. I had to keep asking for numbing cream. I think a few people are just more sensitive than others. But the worst is over and the touch ups should be a breeze!

Diana Mora

April 27, 2018

Thanks so much for sharing your experience in such detail!! I’m in day 3 and the itching is starting. Hope I look as good as you at the end of the first month!!

Lauren

April 27, 2018

Thank you for this!! My brows were done yesterday, they look a little more filled in than hairlike strokes.. and they are a little thinner than I would have liked. Hopefully I can achieve flufflied brows like you at my touch up!! Extremely helpful though. :)
