Can I Prevent Microblading Scabbing?

Unfortunately, scabbing cannot be prevented, but it can be minimized by following aftercare instructions.

The stage of scabbing microblading healing process is the most annoying one and it requires a lot of patience. There are some rules you need to follow in order not to ruin your microblading.

The most important one is not to touch or pick at the scabs. Under no circumstances should you scratch your eyebrows or peel off the scabs. If you do that, the pigment can be pulled out and your microblading might be ruined.

The damage can’t be fixed until the skin heals completely, so you’ll have to walk around with patchy brows for 6 weeks.

Picking your scabs can lead to even more serious damage – scar tissue.

In that case, there’s nothing the artist can do to fix it since scar tissue shouldn’t be microbladed.

If you are prone to picking scabs or wounds, make sure to inform your artist about that habit before the procedure. They might adjust your aftercare routine.

What If I Accidentally Scratch Microblading Scabs?

If you scratch your brows and peel off some scabs accidentally, you risk too much pigment coming off with the scab.

If you are worried that you might have ruined your microblading, contact your artist. Send them a picture to see how much damage was done. It should be fixed at the first touch up, after the healing period is over, 6-8 weeks after the treatment.

What Will My Brows Look Like After the Scabbing Process is Finished?

In many cases, scabbing leaves your eyebrows at least a little patchy.

They are sometimes so light that you might be worried that your microblading disappeared. It is all part of the healing process. The pigment will start to show again. If your eyebrows are still patchy after the healing process is finished, they can be corrected at the touch up.
