How‌ ‌your‌ ‌Microblading‌ ‌SHOULD heal‌ ‌and‌ ‌NOT heal‌

If you are a beginner artist, you must be feeling anxious while waiting on how your microblading will look when it’s healed. I was also like that when I was a beginner. I’m also worrying and thinking of how it will heal, if I did something wrong, etc. I get worried most especially when clients start asking questions, sending photos, and getting a bit doubtful. It’s really troublesome, right? 

So read further to know how your microblading should heal and how to achieve great results, and how it should not heal and how to avoid getting bad results.

How should it heal?

1. Your lines should be present, crisp and thin, just tiny empty spots which you’ll fill on your touch-up.

2. The color should be clear and not blue, orange, and blurry. 

How to achieve this result?

  1. Fill the pigment into the cut, and make it slides through 
  2. Wait for 15-20 minutes before wiping it out to make sure the skin/cuts absorbs the ink.

How should it NOT heal?

You’ll know if your microblading went bad if you see the following:

  1. Blue colored strokes.
  2. Patchy and blurry eyebrows.
  3. Strokes are too thick.
  4. Strokes have huge empty gaps. 

Now, why does it happen?

  1. Your strokes are too close together making it look like one thick stroke.
  2. You went too deep.
  3. Filling in the color too fast and not carefully.
  4. Your strokes are overdone – too many passes.

 I’ll also show you my first work. These are my mom’s eyebrows and it really healed so badly. Why?

  1. Because I don’t have a pattern and just randomly put the strokes where I feel like it.
  2. I went too deep.
  3. The needles I used are too thick. 

*My mom’s skin is really thin, so thick needles will easily go deep and will create thick strokes just like what is shown in the photo. Needles for this skin type should be really thin and sharp as you only need to do tiny cuts and scratches.

One good example of beautiful results achieved by using high-quality thin needles is this

*In this model, I used the BeautySlesh NanoFlow needles which is the thinnest microblading nanoneedle in the market at 0.14-0.15mm.

You can also see that the strokes are not too close to each other.

Additional Tips: 

  • If you want darker microblading results, you can add shading. Please note that shading must be done separately on touch up as you need microblading to heal first.
  • You can also do machine hair strokes with powder brows as an alternative.

Now if you’re asking me how I improved from getting bad results to creating and getting really beautiful brows, here are my tips.

  1. Use good thin, sharp needles like NanoFlow needles. Your tools should be of the highest-quality as our clients deserve only the best results, right?
  2. Learn your pattern and…
  3. Practice your pattern daily, over and over again.

I hope this blog and tips help you get a good result on your next and future microblading procedures.
