Microblading is a cosmetic tattooing technique that lasts for about two years. It is a form of tattooing that mimics the look of natural hair on the eyebrows by depositing pigment into the skin using blade-shaped equipment with a row of tiny, hardly visible holes.
What You Need to Know
It always requires the use of a disposable, single-use tool. Ask for a new tool or cancel your appointment if your artist doesn’t open a new one before your scheduled time. Despite the belief that it is just as safe as traditional tattooing, there is a shortage of clinical investigations and medical studies to support this view. Comfort with the technician and the setting is crucial.
Knowing how your skin may react to the procedure is just as important as taking precautions to prevent harm. There’s a chance that the procedure’s longevity or the efficacy of some skin care products will be affected. When preparing to microblade your eyebrows, you may want to avoid the following skincare steps:
- Mechanical exfoliation
- Chemical peels
Skin infections are a potential risk if the pigment causes irritation or an allergic reaction. Pain and discomfort are normal during the operation, and some people report feeling a light stinging for a while afterwards. You should avoid microblading altogether if you
- Are pregnant
- Are prone to keloids
- Have had an organ transplant
Those with liver disease or viral hepatitis should likewise exercise caution
