Eyebrow Tattoo Aftercare Instruction
The 3 common “freak outs” a new client experience following an eyebrow Microblading or other form of eyebrow tattoo treatment are consistently:
- My eyebrow is too dark or thick.
- My eyebrow tattoo is scabbing and peeling.
- I can’t see my eyebrow tattoo anymore.
The day of treatment and a couple of days following your eyebrows Microblading or brow tattoo procedure may appear a lot thicker and darker to you. There are a number of factors which make them appear this way, mainly due to the build-up and drying process of the lymph nodes post procedure. Rest assured both the thickness and darkness of your brow tattoo will subside in the coming days.
The fading, and loss of tattooed hair strokes during the healing process is not just common, it is expected. Don’t be alarmed, your tattoo is still there, beneath the transparent new skin forming following the procedure. They will appear once again during week 2 pr a later part of your healing process.
