After a number of weeks, the skin will have fully healed from the microblading. This means that a new layer of skin has grown over the eyebrow pigment, so it will become anywhere from 30% to 70% lighter.
Many people leave their first microblading appointment worried that their eyebrows are too dark, however by the time their skin has healed the colour should be perfect. However some clients feel that the colour may be too light, so a touch up is often used to create more depth and darken some strokes. A touch up ensures the client is satisfied with the aesthetic and that the perfect brow is created.
In some cases the body totally absorbs the ink, and the semi-permanent tattoo totally disappears. In other cases, because of a variety of factors, including body chemistry, medication, or sun exposure, the pigment might even change color.
The touch-up is an opportunity for the microblading technician to fix any of the changes that may have occurred. It’s also an opportunity for your permanent makeup artist to make any small corrections or changes to the shape.
Often, first time microblading clients will be nervous about their brows becoming too dark or looking heavy, only to completely change their mind weeks later and request stronger looking-brows. The touch up is a treatment that allows clients to feel reassured that they can achieve their eyebrow goals by following up with their Microblading practitioner and resolving any issues they may have..
