HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
Healing time after the procedure is anytime between 10-28 days. We do not perform any top treatments on the area before 5 weeks.
If you have plans to go on holiday in the sun, we recommend that you have your treatment at least 2/3 weeks before you are due to go OR 2 weeks after you are back from your holiday. Whilst you are on holiday try to avoid direct sunlight on your brows as this will fade the pigment. You can also use a sun protection cream on the area.
WILL IT SCAB?
During the healing period, you may expirence some flaking or scabbing. This is totally normal. Do not pick or scratch the area. You may even heal slightly patchy, don’t worry! That’s why we book you in for a top up session.
WILL IT FADE?
If you lose colour in between your initial treatment and your first top-up, this is normal so there is no need to worry. This is why you have your first top-up within 5-8 of the initial treatment. Fading is usually much slower from this point however, some people will need an extra colour boost sooner than others. While this is quite rare, it does happen occasionally to those with oily skin, poor diet, dark skin, sun damaged skin, those applying too many products on their skin and sometimes colour can flake away again during the healing process the second time around.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY TOP UP?
Top-ups after your two sessions (initial treatment and 5-8 week top-up) depend on what treatment you have. Microblading can last between 8-18 months and methods using machine can last between 1-2 years, sometimes longer. (Depending on client’s skin, products used over time and environmental factors, etc).
