Revision Microblading Bellevue & Kirkland | The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery

Microblading is a revolutionary way to enhance the eyebrows long term. However, sometimes it can go wrong, or change as the color fades. While this is sometimes due to an inexperienced provider, it can happen for a variety of reasons. Regardless of the cause, the microblading artists at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery specialize in microblading revision treatments. From correcting miscolored brows to asymmetry, The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery’s brow artists provides the best microblading revision Bellevue and Kirkland offers.

Overview: What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow enhancement, also sometimes placed into the permanent makeup category. It uses a technique similar to tattooing to deposit ink into the skin underneath and around the brows to create the ideal shape and density. The pigment is designed to fade over time because the brows move as you age and brow trends will change. Thus, this treatment lets you update your brow enhancement to stay current.

The procedure takes around two hours for an initial, full microblading session. One touch-up session following that is usually required to provide final results. Unlike other brow enhancements such as brow lamination, microblading is designed to last an average of two to three years.


Microblading—while a commonly performed procedure—does carry some benefits and risks that a patient must analyze before choosing to undergo microblading. Some of the benefits of microblading in Bellevue include:

  • Symmetrical brows
  • Eyebrows in alignment with the golden ratio
  • Naturally colored brows that complement skin tone and hair color
  • Natural looking brow appearance
  • Creation of ideal brow shape
  • Enhances the shape of the eyes
  • Address areas of sparse brow hairs
  • Smudge-proof once healed
  • Minimal side effects
  • Less need for brow makeup
  • Long lasting results
  • Little to no pain
  • Natural results
  • Performed by a certified tattoo artist who specializes in microblading


Microblading comes with relatively few risks. Most people are not at high risk of major complications, but you should discuss the possible adverse effects and risks of microblading with your brow artist before treatment. Some of the risks include:

  • Does not correct the issue
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Discoloration of the pigment
  • Poor healing
  • Allergic reaction
  • Prolonged side effects

What A Microblading Revision Corrects

Revision microblading addresses any cosmetic issues you may have microblading. It can be performed at any time after your microblading treatment. However, it is not a touch-up or refreshment. Revisions usually occur within one year. Let’s look at what exactly a microblading revision can correct.


When undergoing microblading, your artist will color match the pigment to your natural hair color and skin tone. It is sometimes a shade or two darker depending on your preferences. However, occasionally, the pigment can fade into an unnatural color such as blue, green, red, or gray. Obviously, this is distressing. It is fixable though.

Using the color on the opposite side of the color wheel from the color of your brows, your microblading artist will apply this correcting color. After letting it heal, they will reperform the microblading. Letting the correction heal is important because it prevents the pigment from turning an unnatural color again.


Sometimes the shape or alignment of the eyebrows can be off following microblading. Depending on the problem, this may be a simple fix that your artist can correct during a touch-up. However, if it does end up warranting an entire revision, our microblading artists will draw out your new brows using the golden ratio. This identifies the natural symmetrical points based on your unique anatomy.


Sometimes when performed incorrectly or on patients with exceptionally oily skin, the pigmented hair strokes can look thick and unnatural. This is one of the more common problems that a microneedling revision solves. Usually, in these cases, your microblading artist will go over the brows with the powder brows technique because this involves no visible strokes and should cover the unnatural looking results.

A Revision Microblading Session At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery

When you come in for a revision microblading session, it will function roughly the same as your initial session. First, your microblading artist will apply numbing cream and disinfect the brows. Next, they will map out the brows based on the golden ratio. This is not always done during a revision, but it can help ensure ideal symmetry.

From there, your microblading artist will begin microblading as necessary for your revision. This may include applying the color corrector, creating symmetrical brows, adding more density, or correcting visible brow hair strokes. This can take anywhere from thirty minutes to the entire two hours of a typical microblading session.

Your microblading artist will discuss if you will need to have follow-up sessions. Regardless, they will want to monitor your healing and results. This will help them ensure good results.

I had an amazing microblading experience at this place! The provider is very precise and professional. I had no shape and very less brow hair, the provider took extra time to ensure I got the perfect shape and color. My whole face looks lifted because of the eyebrows. The cost is very very reasonable! Every minute was worth it. If you are looking to get microblading don’t look any further. I am very pleased with my combo brows. Going to recommend this place to everyone.

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.
