Yes, we have all gone through the roller coaster of emotions of the "Microblading Process". Unfortunately, its inevitable. From tears of joy to tears of disappointment. It's true the brows your Microblading Artist took all that time perfecting are gone! okay okay so lets get to the bright side, While they are gone or lighten they haven't gone away forever. The skin is an amazing organ not to mention the largest one. That being said, the skin is constantly regenerating over the course of the healing process. I hate to break it to you but those pretty hair like strokes are not really hair! This why we must treat it like a wound. We must care for it as we would care for a cut or burn. Let your skin heal! Be patient. I usually scare my clients (tell them they can get an infection if not cared for properly which is totally true) and repeatedly tell them how to care for them verbally and send them home with written instructions. This way You understand this is no JOKE. Although your skin has a big effect on your healed results, so does your After Care etiquette! So moving on...
Once you have reached about 4-6 weeks you'll notice the pigment get darker again. Depending on each individual you may lose anywhere from 30-60% in color. Usually, your first touch-up determines how your skin takes and at this time your artist may need to go darker or bolder (your 2nd session is crucial). I always tell my clients' let's take baby steps. I rather you come back and gradually build the brows of your dreams than to have an eyebrow nightmare! Everyone heals differently and this is why your sisters or best friends brows took so much better than yours when it was done by the same artist even on the same day! I know its not fair, not at all! but before you lose hope on your stubborn skin you will be pleased to know that there are other options. Oily skin tends to fade quicker than someone with normal to dry skin so in that case a powder brow is usually recommended. Powdered brows are created using a tattoo machine. Again, don't freak out it won't look like you have two sharpies on your face or like the old lady you saw the other day at the grocery store with pencil thin, 1990 tattooed eyebrows (Thank god for evolvement!). Even though we do use the machine we use a very different technique a feather-like stroking motion to create eyebrows that look so naturally powdered, natural with a little umph.
