- Scabbing stage - Scabs start to form around 3 days in and will start peeling for up to two weeks.
- Ghosting stage - Once the scabs start to heal, the eyebrows will look like they disappeared. But don’t worry because it will go back during the next stage.
- Final look - The brows take their final shape after a few more days or weeks. Going to your mandatory touch up appointment will fix any imperfections or fill in any gaps that showed up during the healing process. This is done around 6-8 weeks after the brows fully heal.
