Light scabbing is a normal part of the microblading healing process. While light scabbing may be normal, heavy scabbing is NOT. Because the healing process is full of ups and down I’ve created this post about scabbing to help you along the journey.
Is my microblading supposed to peel?
Around 7-14 days, you may notice some flaking/shedding of the skin near the brow area. When the skin flakes off, many times the Microblading strokes have disappeared. THIS IS NORMAL. This is because there is still a thick layer of protective skin creating a veil over the pigment.
Is it normal to have bald spots after microblading?
Often, even with proper care, customers develop bald spots or loose original hairstrokes which makes brows look uneven. It is absolutely normal because your natural skin regeneration is not a process that technician can control.
What if my microblading doesn’t scab?
It is ok as long as the scabs come off NATURALLY and on their own. While the scabbing process is normal, your scabs may take some of your pigment with them as they fall off. This is the main reason that you shouldn’t pick your scabs. Picking your scabs may result in a loss of pigment that may need to be re-applied.
Do eyebrows scab after touch up?
The appearance of your new permanent eyebrows will be darker and thicker than you might expect. Usually after about a week or so, the area and top layer starts to scab and “shed” off in sections. The new exposed pigment will eventually soften and settle into an appropriate natural appearance.
When do Microbladed eyebrows reappear?
In most cases, the microblading reappears within a few days as your skin heals itself. After 30 days of healing it is common to have some spots where the pigment didn’t retain, at this point, you still have your follow-up appointment to reinforce strokes and fill in missing/faded pigment.
Why do my Microbladed eyebrows look GREY?
During the first week, the healing process can transform the results into a darker color before shedding the post-Microblading procedure scab. A few weeks after the procedure, you notice some gaps in the hair-strokes and the color looks a bit ashy or gray.
Why microblading is a bad idea?
The primary (and scariest) problem with microblading is that the procedure cuts the skin in order to deposit the pigment. Any time your skin is cut there is a serious risk of infection and scar tissue.
