Brows have different stages of the healing process. I will take you through what the process looks like day-by-day which I’ve included pictures. It will help understand what is normal and what isn’t
During the healing process it is NORMAL to experience some scabbing, some patching and even some loss of pigment.
Some of my clients freak out on the fact that some scabbing and “flaking” of the pigment, This is actually quite normal, it may look like your brows are coming completely off, but don’t let it freak you out because some of it is normal.
Oily skin in particular has retention issues.
You can see how the brows becomes “patchy” as some scabbing occurs and scabs flake off. During this period it is CRITICAL that you do NOT pick off the scabs because you run the risk of pulling the pigment out.
Day 1: YES I HAVE BROWS, I LOVE THEM! Your brows are fresh, perfect and beautiful.
Day 2-4: “OMG They are way too dark and thick.” Your brows will actually get darker over this period of time, but don’t freak out! They will lighten again.
Day 5-8: During these days your brows may be flaking and scabbing off. DO NOT pick or remove the scabs or you may inadvertently remove some of your pigment!
Day 9-10: “Where are my brows they have completely fallen off!!” Your brows will appear like they are completely gone during this time, but don’t worry – they will still be there! And this is also why it’s important to have your touch up.
Days 11-28: “My brows are coming back but they are patchy!” Your brows will appear to be patch and incomplete during this part of the healing process. Most of these patches will fill in over time but if for some reason some area doesn’t take the touch up will help fill the gap.
Day 42 (after touch up): “These are better than I thought, I freaked out for nothing !!!” Now you’re feeling how you were at your first session.
It’s a long process but it’s worth it, just be patient and follow after care. Think about the end results, You will have brows 🙂
