Who IS a good Canidate for Microblading you ask?
To Answer this question I’ll lead with, So many people! Let’s touch for a half of a second on the previous post- I aopologize if you were put off by it, I am honest, if you have met me you know this. I like for my clients to know all of the gritty details. After all, you should be able to make an informed decision about the face you bare to the world every day.
Microblading is a very natural solution to having eyebrows you do not need to recreate day in and day out. Natural, as in the appearance of the healed result. It is the art of placing pigment just under the top layer of skin to resemble a piece of hair, not meant to be permanent- which is both a blessing and a curse. The perfect candidate would have healthy skin, little to no eyebrow hair, and does not use anti aging products. Skin Care containing Alpha-Hydroxy Acids such as Glycolic, Mandelic, or Lactic Acids (just to name a popular few) or Retinoids will speed up cell turnover (hence, anti-aging) and fade Microblading faster than intended. Many think if they avoid the brow area with these products they are in the clear. This isn’t necessarily true, you see, our skin is like a sponge. Products will migrate or travel as if you placed a drop of water on a dry sponge or piece of paper, the water will expand way beyond the area you intended it to be.
Due to Microblading having a more natural effect, it will suit the little to no make-up wearing client. If you wear make up daily I would recommend a different service, or you will continue to fill in your brows. Some are ok with this as you will have a clear template to follow. If you should choose adding a different service, Blade & Shade would be my next suggestion. This is still a more natural outcome, but more noticeable from a distance and looks great on anyone with or without lighter make-up application. There is one more selection that (I feel) is acceptable for little to no make-up wearing clients, this is the Powder Brow service. I will go into more details about this in a later article.
So there you have it, short and sweet! If you have any further question do not hesitate to email me or fill out the contact form on my website.
