There are several factors that affect microblading healing time, but one of the most important is which microblading establishment you went to. The quality of your procedure has the biggest effect on your healing process.
At Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM), healing time lasts only 3 to 5 days.
Sounds impossible? Here’s how and why OPM is so good at achieving a speedy microblading healing time.
Primary healing vs. Secondary healing
At OPM, where every microblading artist has finished a minimum of 100 hours of practice, correct microblading practice is always observed. We always aim for the skin’s primary healing after the procedure.
Primary healing also goes by ‘first intention healing’ or ‘primary union’. It’s a type of wound healing where there is very little tissue loss, so faster microblading healing time occurs.
Secondary healing, on the other hand, is a kind of healing with considerable tissue loss. Healing time is longer, and chances of scarring and infection are greater.
Proper handling of tools and the appropriate control on incision depth are vital in determining which kind of healing you will undergo.
Proper depth eesults in proper microblading healing time
The thickness of the epidermis in the eyebrow area varies from 0.6 mm to 0.9 mm, depending on age. As we grow older, our skin becomes thinner.
Imagine how delicate our skin really is. Such tenderness should only be exposed to regulated pressure.
At OPM, microblading artists have a knack for knowing and feeling just the right amount of pressure. They guarantee that they only apply a pressure of 50 psi to avoid bleeding and scarring—as opposed to 100 psi of pressure which could cut deeply through the dermis.
Observe proper microblading aftercare
Of course, not everything is up to your microblading artist. If microblading aftercare instructions are ignored, you’ll run the risk of having an infection and there a much longer pace for your microblading healing time.
The basic rule of microblading aftercare is: minimize exposure.
Don’t expose the microbladed area to the following:
- direct skin contact
- direct sunlight
- water, sweat, and all other liquids
- skin oils, moisturizers, creams, lotions, and the like
