After attending your Microblading session, freshly feathered eyebrows take 7 – 10 days to heal. It is normal for slight patchiness during this healing process.
Full strokes may not be entirely visible, as it takes approximately 4 weeks for pigment to resurface. During the healing process, the colour will drop by 40% and the thickness by 15% when fully healed.
