I got many questions asking how my eyebrows going to look like after the eyebrow micropigemnation treatment, and when I will be able to see the final look of my brows.
It is very important for the client to know what to expect during the healing process which lasts 4-6 and can be categorized into five major phases:
This phase lasts only for the first few hours following the treatment. In which you may experience redness, swelling, skin sensitivity and oozing plasma ( clear body liquid ). These symptoms usually settle down within few hours and should not last more than 24 hours. At this stage, the eyebrows look thicker and darker than the final brow look.
Tip: the Oozing plasma on your eyebrows is what helps in building thick scabs and causes poor color retention. Therefore it’s important to blot dry the treated area on the first day.
The first four days following the digital microblading treatment while your eyebrows still look darker and thicker. You begin to feel the treated area is drying out, and the upper layer of the skin starts to build a scab preparing to flake off.
Tip: To prevent extreme dryness you have to clean and moisturize your eyebrows 2-3 times per day with aftercare product given in the treatment. Be careful not to apply too much product – you don’t want to suffocate your eyebrow microblading!
This phase is characterized mainly by flaking and peeling off the top layer of the treated area which usually starts at day 5 and lasts for 3-5 days. Please note that some skin types tend to elongate this phase. The top layer of the skin should peel off in fine sections if the client is following the aftercare plan correctly.
Tip: The eyebrows may tend to be itchy during this phase. Don’t pick! Keep them moisturized to calm down the itchiness.
This phase is called the milky film and usually happens in the second week after pretty-much all your eyebrows peeled off. in this phase the brow color looks light and grayish, hair-strokes seem to be cloudy and dull.
The reason behind this phase is a very fine layer of dead skin still covering the color underneath. But this will naturally flake away within few days and the color starts to bloom.
Tip: Don’t panic! This is only a temporary and natural phase.
You are almost there! This is the last phase of your digital eyebrow micropigemntation healing process which usually lasts between 3-6 weeks of the initial procedure. In this stage, color starts to bloom back and hair strokes look more clear and crisp.
Tip: This is a very important phase of your skin to fully heal and repair itself. You can then contact your semi-permanent makeup artist to arrange a touchup session to correct any problems such as patchy spots or fading.
In conclusion, it is difficult to say when micropigemntation is fully healed because everybody heals differently and not necessarily to go through all previous phases. But certainly following aftercare instructions carefully helps in smooth healing and good results.
