Hello and thank you for your question. Fading almost to the point of it appearing to have disappeared is normal. It takes roughly 4-6 weeks to see the final healed result. In some cases, some of the color can still return. Most technicians offer a touch-up after the first procedure to perfect the eyebrows. During this appointment your technician can assess the retention and make modifications the second time. Microblading in particular has a tendency to look very "crisp" immediately after, but as it heals becomes softer and somewhat blended. 

I hope this helps, and good luck!

It is normal to have the brows fade after your first appointment. Your physician should have offered you a retouching appointment one month after your initial procedure. If they did not, you should request one.

Best of luck!
