We have listed a few bits of information to help explain what you may see for the first 15 days post-microblading.
1. Patchy coverage
This is normal to see in the first 7-10 days. The areas where you see dark patches are still in the process of moving the pigment up towards the surface and shedding the skin above. The lighter areas are those where the skin has already shed and has revealed fresh skin growth. They should even out by day 10.
2. Missing areas
These faint areas are covered with fresh skin cells. The new cells are full of “juice” and plumper than what we typically have at the surface of the skin.
Once the skin moves this layer of fresh cells (which contains the bulk of our micro-pigment) up to the surface they will dry and flatten. The strokes and pigment will then reappear and give us a proper measure of colour retention by approximately week 2.
3. Brows are lighter brown with pink undertone
While your skin is still in the recovery phase, it will have higher cellular activity at the site of repair thereby making the skin appear flushed. This undertone in the skin will temporarily alter the colour of the brows. The skin can take up 3 months to completely restructure, but you’re true colour typically shows before that around week 2.
Chemical peels are great for skin rejuvenation because they accelerate the cell turnover rate by chemically penetrating beneath the surface of the skin to dissolve away dead skin cells. If you are treating a concern, such as sun damage, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation, we recommend 4-8 sessions.
Photofacials use Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology to diminish brown spots, redness, broken capillaries, fine lines and other textural damage. We recommend 4-6 treatments when treating the above skin concerns.

Perhaps not… but have you considered what adding extra volume to your brows will do for your face?
👉the EYES 👁👁
Full brows will bring attention to your eyes. Your ideal brow colour should compliment your natural hair and eye colour. Your technician will blend a custom colour to create the best possible colour match.
👉the FACE 🙂
Microblading helps correct asymmetry caused by minor differences between your left and right brow. Your technician will take facial measurements to ensure the most flattering brow shape to frame your face shape.
3 Microblading Levels
Dérmica offers 3 microblading levels to help you achieve your dream brows.
1. LEVEL I – up to 30% additional coverage.
If all you’re looking for is a little extra volume, a LEVEL I is all you need. LEVEL I clients have an existing shape in their brows, no major correction is needed, just some strokes here and there. LEVEL I Microblading is often opted for by clients that want to correct minor mistakes such as over plucking of the tail or arch.
2. LEVEL II- up to 60% additional coverage.
If you want to thicken the shape of your brows, you most likely need a LEVEL II.
LEVEL II Microblading requires your technician to create a new shape using your existing brow shape. Multiple corrections are made on a LEVEL II procedure. Often, strokes are added to the bottom AND top of your existing brow line as well as adding strokes to the tails for a finished look from beginning to end.
3. LEVEL III- up to 100% additional coverage.
Clients who require a LEVEL III procedure have very little to no brow shape. Using geometry to take in-depth measurements, the technician creates a brow shape to last you 2-3 years.
