If you are one of those people who care about how they look before they step out of the house every morning, then you must have tried different eyebrows enhancement techniques. While most people had previously been going for eyebrow waxing, they are now opting for microblading which is the trending eyebrow enhancement technique in town. However, it is essential that you understand the process of every beauty enhancement procedure and this is not an exception when it comes to microblading so that you know what to expect. First, you should note that the process is only conducted by a beauty expert who has undergone microblading training to ensure that only the desired results are achieved without any complications.
Understanding the microblading procedure
Since this is a complicated process that is supposed to give long-term and effective results it is good to understand how the process works to know when complications arise.
You should bear in mind that the procedure involves incisions which can be painful. Although the person performing the microblading will have applied a numbing ointment, this may feel a little more uncomfortable than getting a regular tattoo. However, this form of discomfort should not scare you since the cuts are not too deep thus no severe pain is involved.
Scabbing is a normal part of the healing process
The healing process can take a couple of days, and you should expect some ups and downs. One of the setbacks you should expect is a light scabbing. Scabbing can make first-timers to freak out as once the scab falls off your skin looks pigmented but this is a part of the healing process, and the pigments usually disappear within a couple of days. Scabbing only appears for 5 to 7 days then disappear thus this should not a big concern given that the results will last for years.
Ointment healing vs dry healing
Dry healing may look a little bit worse during the healing process but results in more desirable crisps brows that looks better than ointment healing. Besides, dry healing tends to take longer than ointment healing. Remember that it is normal for your eyebrows to look patchy for a few days up to day 14. In case, the patching persists even after two weeks have passed that is abnormal, and you may have to apply skin care supplements.
Normal scabbing vs infections
While partial scabbing is a part of the healing process heavy scabbing should not occur. If your brows become heavily scabbed and inflamed, you could be developing an infection. Make sure that the infections are treated as early as possible since they could ruin your skin tone. Visit your stylist to have your brows checked so that you can take the best course of action.
