Okay I’ve had my brows microbladed a total of 5 times in two years because my skin is so oily that it doesn’t take, and the first tech had no idea what she was doing. How many days healed are you in the pic? Because the first 1-3 days afterwards you swell like crazy even if it doesn’t look puffy and most of what you see that looks solid with no hair strokes/texture is just excess ink/pigment that will shrink and come off with the scabs with no residual colour gradient. Your brows are essentially an open wound for at least a week afterwards so please be super careful of what products you’re using. Also, too much water or lotion/ointment can actually cause the ink to bleed and heal blotchy and even bigger… Please be careful.

I know it must be a drastic change from your original brows, but it does not look that bad, Bee. I would avoid going in for the removal or doing anything else drastic until they fade on their own in a couple of weeks. From pics I’ve seen of others, the fading is usually pretty substantial. Once the pigment has stabilized you will have a better idea what you’re working with and can determine a plan of action. But I’m afraid the removal or any harsh chemicals are going to make things worse. Just use some concealer if you’re uncomfortable with how they look in the meantime.

I’d just like to say I’m very jealous of your eyelashes. lol

I agree. OP’s natural eyebrow on her left side looks higher than the right. So the tech had to go outside the line to make them look even.
I’ve been getting permanent makeup on my brows for the past 20 years (solid fill eyebrow tattoo, microblading, powder brows) and I can honestly say they don’t look that bad. You’ll lose about 50% of pigment once everything is healed. For now, I would avoid doing or putting anything on them as it could become infected and mess with the pigment even more.
I’m curious though…was this the look you were going for…the ‘instagram’ eyebrows? Did the tech not draw on your brows before she started the process so you could see what the results would look like? Or were you wanting a more natural look like another PP had posted? Your results look identical to the ones posted here, which is very typical with the brow trend going on right now..

I’m on day 6. She went outside of the hairline to make them even and ended up making it wider than the good one and a bit higher. The pigment has faded a bit, but it’s still very noticeable that one brow is drawn above the hair, which is not the natural look I wanted. The tail end also looks like a straight tattoo to me.
Here’s an updated picture I took this morning before finishing with color correcting makeup. I decided to not go through with the removall process as it could lead to scarring. I also got side swept bangs to cover the messed up brow. Excuse the dry skin. It’s still peeling.
This is the microshading look I was hoping for https://www.instagram.com/p/BsN_C0KH61R/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1nhw2s2izevve

the one eyebrow is starting to look a little better compared to your initial photos, maybe try and not pluck the one eyebrow at all for awhile to see if the hair will grow in around the tail section….

Bee it looks so much better! Especially after only 6 days. Hopefully it continues to fade nicely for you.

Your brows look so much better than on the original photo. They will fade even more. I think the shape suits you very well.

I totally understood your panic at the first photo, but they actually look really great now.

If it makes you feel any better, unless someone is right in your face I doubt they really notice.

They look MUCH better, mine took about 3 weeks to fade to a normal color. Give it some more time 🙂
