Brow Tattooing has different stages of the healing process. I will take you through what the process looks like day-by-day, I’ve included pictures. It will help you to 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.
Flaking and scabbing is when i get the most questions, 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.
Because it’s confusing to know I will show you the day by day of the healing process to help you understand what is normal and what isn’t .
The touch up appointment is there to address any areas that did not hold the colour during the healing phase or to make any minor adjustments.
BELOW IS A GREAT PICTURE THAT DEPICTS THE HEALING PROCESS (THIS IS NOT MY WORK)
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 patchy 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 beautiful brows.
lots of love Nashida xx
(You can see how the brow 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.)
