Whether you want to re-shape your brows, thicken them or simply shorten your morning makeup routine; Microblading will do it all.
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo technique where a small blade like needle, is dipped into pigment and inserted into the skin to mimic hair like strokes.
Along with the success stories, come reports of gruesome results: A slew of horrifying microblading mishaps, ranging from unflattering shape and color to scarring and infection.
Unfortunately, the increased popularity of Microblading has led to an army of under-qualified practitioners who are quickly taught the technique in order to keep up with demand.
The results and safety of Microblading are somewhat reliant on the technician performing the procedure. Someone inexperienced can truly cause severe damage and less than desirable results on someone’s eyebrows.
Not only choosing the proper technician, but choosing a technician who is properly trained in color theory is just as important. “What good is the art, if the brows turn blue or pink?”
Pigments can vary from person to person and need to be modified to suit each individual patient; as there is no one color that suits all or heals in the same manner.
Although scarring or infections are rare, precautions should be taken, as infections can cause local inflammation and increase the damage done to the surrounding tissues or skin cells.
Be sure to do your research, and ask to see certification and before and after photos of the technicians work. Always ask questions and voice your concerns during your consultation, while remembering that Microblading is only as safe as its provider.
