Microblade Brows -brows that are tattooed with fine individual strokes that look like hair - are a little more complex than the average soft fill solid permanent eyebrow. While both are a fabulous solution to non-existent eyebrows, the solid fill brow can look a little superficial at first, but will eventually soften to look like you have meticulously put on great brow makeup, whereas microblade brows will look a lot like real hair at first, but will fade a bit faster than the solid fill brow. Let me clarify. During the first week after the procedure, your brows will oxidize, getting darker and perhaps spottier than before, and then potentially start to flake some, which may lead you to wonder - "Why isn't the ink staying?!!" Well, it most likely is, but once the skin starts to heal, the top layer of your skin will start to grow over the pigment, causing the tattooed brows to look spotty. If in fact some areas of the brows do not take, this happens as well sometimes. Its ok we can fix that. As long as we did not go outside of your approved brow shape then it will be FINE. If this happens, DO NOT FREAK OUT! ITS NORMAL. Please do not touch them unless with a clean q-tip and some Aquaphor to keep them moisturized. Seven Days after the initial procedure you should be pretty much back to normal and if needed you can use a little brow filler to make them look consistent (Now you have a great guide to use instead of reinventing the wheel every single day!). Please do not ask me to "fix" your brows before it has been 30 days since your original procedure, because to do so puts you and I both at risk for all sorts of risks - including infection - and I will always politely decline for that reason. After 30 days, I'll have a great idea of what I need to do to fix them. For microblade brows, I recommend a touch up between 4-6 weeks, and then one at the end of the first year. You may need another touch up for microblade brows most likely once a year after that. Once you do your complimentary touch up they are only $75 for life!
Another thing - if you look at yourself right after the procedure and think - "OMG I look like Groucho Marks!" Well, again, don't freak out! In order for the ink to have a longer lasting life, we will need to go a little darker and thicker than you think is right.... The ink will fade and all the borders of my fine lines will fade, so that is why we do that. Trust me it will look normal after a month.
Look at the images below: The one directly underneath (it has 4 eyebrow images): before, to right after - I had to rub out an area that got too thick with saline hence the little bit of scabbing directly above, a week later, then a month later after full on healing.... Turned out pretty nice and natural, eh?
Second images (set of three with blue eyed blonde woman) - Before, Right after ( we added a little to both the inner and outer corners), and a month later after full healing.
Third Image, Soft fill brows (brown eyed lady with non-existent brows before) - this is what a soft filled brow looks like right after the procedure. They are actually a better option for some ladies.... If you have NO hair, this is probably a better option - we can do a solid and microblade hybrid too if you have hair in some part of your brow but none on the ends for example.
