Frequently Asked Questions
Why Do Microbladed Brows Fade To An Unnatural Color?
First, it should be noted that this does not always occur. Some people will never see their brows fade unnaturally. As far as why it happens, it could be a number of reasons. If it happens soon after your procedure, it may have been an inexperienced provider, poor pigment quality, or you may need a touch-up.
Red brows are often caused by pigments that contain certain metals. Green brows usually have to do with pigment quality or poor mixing of pigments. Gray brows are either an initial, temporary healing response, an incorrect pigment used on your skin tone, or you simply need a touch-up. Blue brows occur when a pure black pigment is used. This is rarely done anymore but may happen occasionally.
Sometimes, patients simply get unlucky and see their brows fade into an unnatural color. Even if this happens, there are specific color correction pigments to bring your brows back to a more natural color.
What Microblading Techniques Are Used For A Microblading Revision?
The exact technique used for your Bellevue microblading revision will depend on what needs to be done. The most common technique is powder brows because it can cover most issues. However, if the concern is slight, your artist will likely just continue the original technique. In the case of color correction, they will use your preferred technique once the color correction is complete.
When Should I Seek A Microblading Revision?
It is best to wait until you have healed completely from your touch-up. In most cases, your brow artist will perform the initial microblading session, and then four to six weeks later, you will come in for a touch-up. Usually, this touch-up is necessary for ideal results. If after your touch-up heals, you are still dissatisfied or notice that a correction needs to be made, that is the right time to seek a revision.
Generally, the brow artists at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery will recommend that you see your original artist first. However, if that is not possible or you do not feel comfortable with them anymore, we are more than happy to accommodate your microblading revision.
How Can I Promote The Best Results?
While not possible to avoid all revisions, following proper aftercare and choosing the right provider go a long way in reducing the future need for a microblading revision. Both following your original microblading session, touch-up, and revision session, your microblading artist will provide you with instructions. These may include:
- Do not do any strenuous activity for a few days
- Avoid getting the brows wet for about one to two weeks
- Do not pick at scabs that may form
- Clean your brows according to the instructions provided
- Do not drink to excess or smoke
- Protect your brows from the sun, preferably by avoiding sun exposure and covering the brows with a hat when going outside
- Cease use of retinol or similar products near or on the treatment area
- Do not get hung up on how the brows look during the stages of healing, it will take them time to look their best
What Is The Cost Of Revision Microblading?
The exact cost of a revision microblading session depends largely on the amount of correction necessary. If you need just a touch-up or your brows completely redone, this will affect the cost. You can find more information about our pricing on our price list and Price Simulator.
