P.S. when your microblading becomes “patchy” as some scabbing occurs and scabs flake off. During this period it is CRITICAL NOT to pick off the scabs because you run the risk of pulling the pigment out.

Day 1:

Fresh, perfect and brand new microblading. “Love it!”

Day 2 - 4:

The microbladed area will actually get darker over this period of time, but don’t freak out! They will lighten again. “Why so dark?”

Day 5 - 8:

Between these days the area may be flaking and scabbing off. Make sure NEVER to pick or remove the scabs or you may inadvertently remove some of your pigment! “OMG! So patchy! So scary!”

Day 9 - 10:

Your microblading 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. “Finish already, all gone, wasted!”

Days 11 - 28:

The microbladed area will appear to be patchy 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 in the pigment, the touch up will help fill the gap so to speak. “They are back!”

Day 42:

Now you are back, after touch up, to the way you felt on the first day. Trust us on the cycle. However, some might skip the touch up stage altogether. “Super Sui (beautiful)!!!”

The basic healing stages in a nut shell! As you can see there are definitely lots of up’s and down’s, and if you are not ready for them they can definitely cause some stress.

Need not worry, as long as you listen to the aftercare instructions and follow them to a “T” it will turn out beautiful. ​

Remember that the majority of the pigment gets “glued in” long term after your touch up. A touch up is required for your brows to stay semi permanent up to 15 months and one of the benefits for touching up is to fill in any gaps that may get pulled out as a result of scabbing.

​The most important thing you can do is set your expectations up early. It is absolutely critical that you follow your aftercare instructions and trust in La Vida™ to get the best possible result.
