Is the initial session not enough?
The touch up session is recommended but not necessary. Some clients are satisfied with their brows after just the first session and prefer not to do the first touch-up but come back annually to maintain the shape and color of their brows. However, touch ups are recommended if clients have stubborn skin and are unable to properly follow the aftercare instructions.
The second stage of the treatment is a TOUCH-UP appointment. The touch up that takes approximately 1 hour and is included in your service. Touch ups are done no earlier than 5 weeks of your initial procedure and no later than 10 weeks. It is imperative you complete the touch up treatment. Without it, the results will not be optimal. Colour 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.
Why touch up is important?
After a month and a half, the skin will have completely healed from the Microblading. This means another layer of skin has become over the eyebrow embroidery pigment, so it will turn out to be somewhere in the area of 30% to 70% lighter. Many individuals leave their first Microblading appointment worried that their eyebrows are too dark; however, when their skin has healed the color should be flawless, or perhaps too light.
In some cases, the body thoroughly assimilates the ink, and the semi-permanent tattoo absolutely vanishes. In different cases, due to an assortment of factors, including body chemistry, treatment, or sun exposure, the pigment embroidery may even change color.
The touch-up is an opportunity for the Microblading professional to settle any of the progressions that may have happened. Also, before you ask, yes, even changed ink color can be rectified! It’s also an opportunity for your permanent makeup artist to roll out any little corrections or changes to the shape.
