What is the healing process like?
Updated: Jan 6
After your initial brow session, you'll feel a slight tenderness in the brow area for one or two days. You might also have mild swelling or redness in the brow. You will be advised to keep the brow area dry and clean for a week. This is to prevent any bacteria from entering the skin, or any substance that can interfere with the healing process.
2-5 days: You will see your brow turn darker and bolder. Please don't panic, this is part of the normal healing process as excess pigment gets "pushed out" of the skin.
7-10 days: You will experience scabbing and flaking to various degrees. Some clients experience very minimal scabbing/flaking, while others might experience more. This might also be accompanied by feelings of itchiness, and it simply means your skin is healing. 80% of my clients experience very mild scabbing. You can still go about your daily life, your brows will just be a bit darker! Please remember to resist the temptation to pick the scabs, which can reopen the wounds and disrupt the healing process. It might also remove some pigment, resulting in patchy brows. let the scabs flake off naturally instead!
10-14 days: As your brows continue to flake, the dark colour will soften and you're at the lightest stage. But rest assured that the colour will come back.
4-6 weeks: Any colour successfully retained by the skin will resurface. It is completely normal if you still have patchy spots as some colour might get metabolized and lost during healing. If you haven't booked a touch-up appointment yet, you should definitely do so!
