A Sneak Peek at the Healing Process - ft. Combo Brows
Updated: Apr 30, 2022
Before, during, and after microblading appointments, I hear a lot of the same questions.
"Is this normal?" "Are my brows supposed to look like this?" "What should I expect?"
Worry no further! This blog post is your go-to guide for all things microblading healing.

We also thought it would be fun to show you day by day the healing process since it can be quite a roller coaster for those going through it for the first time.
DAY 1: They are usually quite bold and orange (this is due to additives that are in the ink to ensure it doesn't turn grey in the skin and usually lasts for the first few days but DOES NOT heal like that).
DAY 5: They have been mashed down with ointment for several days so it will press the hair in odd directions and you'll likely panic thinking there are patches missing... STAY CALM, this happens to everyone but they are still healing and on the bright side they are usually passed the orange phase by now so there's something!
DAY 10: They are superficially healed now but the total healing phase is about 45 days so you still have to be gentle with them but the color is pretty close to how it will stay. They'll still look best when you keep the hair's brushed up and of course keep them tweezed. Sometimes by the 14th day they even look a little stronger because the deeper pigment has risen to the surface and is more visible so that's an exciting reward to your week of ointment!
