Here’s what to expect within the first month post-treatment:

  • Day 1: Your eyebrows will look perfect and natural.
  • Day 2-5: Your eyebrow color will appear very dark. This is normal for the treatment and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40% as it heals.
  • Day 5-10: You will notice slight scabbing in your eyebrows. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the microbladed area.
  • Day 10-30: You’ll notice the color is very light; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.
  • Post 1 month: Your eyebrows will be healed, and the true color will fully set in.
  • Post touch-up (recommended 4-12 weeks post first session): Your eyebrows will look and remain perfect and natural.

Recommended Aftercare Tips to achieve the best results possible:

  • Within 2 hours after the procedure, clean brows using a q-tip and lightly moisten with distilled or cooled down boiling water. Gently wipe away the old healing balm and any lymphatic liquid (clear yellowish liquid) that may have built up. Lightly pat dry with tissue and using the spatula, re-apply healing balm to the brows.
  • Make sure to apply a light layer of healing balm morning and night to brows for at least 5-7 days. Do not over apply healing balm as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing.
  • Do not immerse brow area in water for 14 days. When showering, make sure to avoid face area. When cleaning or washing face, make sure to avoid brows and clean around it.
  • Do not put makeup or any product on the brow area for a minimum of 10 days. Microbladed area is an open wound, using makeup may cause infections.
  • Avoid alcohol and aspirin/ibuprofen and any vitamins that may thin your blood for 24 hours post treatment.
  • Brow area will feel slightly itchy as it heals and will start to lightly scab over. Do not peel or pick at the scabs as this can affect the outcome and pigmentation.
  • Avoid sweating, swimming, tanning, sunbeds or going into saunas for at least 14 days.
  • Avoid botox, face scrubs or chemical peels for at least 2 weeks.
  • Perform top-up session within 4-12 weeks following the first session.
