Here we are go again with another installment post! First off, I need to thank Emily from Brows By Ems for being so sweet and helpful throughout this entire process. She is a master at her talent and I cannot thank her enough for working with me and giving me the brows I have always wanted!
Microblading, it’s all the rage these days. Everyone is looking for fuller brows so they can spend time doing other things. I mean who wants to spend 10 minutes everyday perfecting your brows? Not me. This busy Mama would love to have those extra ten minutes with my babies! I’ve already gone over the basics of microblading, so today I want to focus on the most important part of the entire process…the follow-up appointment.
Just like anything, to make it last you have to do maintenance. You get your Botox every three months, you hit the gym a few times a week and you get your brow filled once a year. But, before you can transition to the yearly maintenance plan, you have to ensure you get that fill withing the first 6-10 weeks of initial appointment. Doing this you’ll notice longer lasting results.
Microblading: The Importance of getting Touch Ups
- Microblading is a 2-Step process. The initial appointment, then a 6 week follow-up for filling and re-shading
- It takes a few weeks for your brows to heal and approximately one month for the semi-permanent color to fully settle into the skin.
- The color appears quite dark initially, but fades with the healing process, resulting in a softer, more desirable shade.
- These touch ups include refilling- if certain areas did not properly retain the pigment; color re-shading- as individuals’ skin types absorb pigmentations differently and may require deeper shading, and brow refining and redefinition if necessary.
- Each individual’s unique skin will determine the longevity of their inked in brows, but generally, brows will last from one to three years, and regular maintenance will ensure you look your best.
- Touch ups are done no earlier than 5 weeks of your initial procedure and no later than 10 weeks.
Ensuring you follow-up for the second step of Microblading is so important for you to complete.. Without it, the results will not be optimal. The color will fade significantly within 4 weeks as the skin heals, peels and fades. The touch up corrects any irregularities in the microbladed hair strokes, color tones and finishes the process.
