Microblading - How to Know If You're a Good Candidate

Full, beautifully arched brows are something nearly every woman desires.

Thankfully, there are microblading professionals who can help people achieve the brow look they desire.

Today, we’ll briefly discuss how this cosmetic technique is so helpful to your beauty routine. We’ll also let you know who the best candidates for microblading are.

Microblading – What It Is and How It Can Have a Profound Impact on Your Beauty Routine

First of all, what is microblading?

This is a tattoo technique which creates the look of perfectly thick eyebrows. It’s great for anyone with thin, sparse, or light eyebrows.

The brow artist uses a small blade to dispense ink into the skin just like a tattoo. Then the ink is meticulously applied in delicate hair-like strokes.

Essentially, this is permanent makeup. However, it is designed to fade over time. Therefore, proper maintenance is needed to keep your brows looking gorgeous. Typically, you’ll need a touch-up treatment every 12 to 18 months.

Thick, dark brows act as a frame for your face. They make the eyes stand out and eye makeup pop.

A woman can even go without makeup and still look put together when she has well-groomed brows.

But taking care of your eyebrows can be a pain.

The tweezing, waxing, and shading with a brow pencil, gel, or shadow can take a lot of time. And if you don’t know what you’re doing when you wax or tweeze, the end result can turn out to be disastrous.

Are You a Good Candidate for a Microblading Procedure?

There are a few ways to determine if you’re a good candidate for this type of cosmetic procedure.

You Have Thin, Sparse, or Light Brows

Over time, nearly everyone’s eyebrows will start to thin, just like the hair on our head. However, some people are just born with sparse eyebrows.

There are some people, too, who have super light eyebrows. The blonde hairs are barely noticeable.

And of course, some people have thin brows because they followed a trend. Pencil-thin eyebrows were popular in the 1930s and again in the 1990s.

With so much tweezing and waxing over the years, some people find their brows don’t grow in as thick as they used to.

Microblading is ideal for any of these scenarios. You’ll get the lush, thick eyebrows which look natural and frame your eyes beautifully.

Some Skin Types Aren’t Compatible with Microblading

People with sensitive, acne-prone, and oily skin might not be the best candidates for microblading.

Sensitive skin, as well as acne-prone skin, can become extremely tender and inflamed when exposed to the tint and blade. And oil in the skin can, at times, cause the pigment to run and blur.

Do You Have a Skin Condition? You Might Not Be a Good Candidate

If you have rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis, microblading is probably not the best option for you.

These skin conditions are inflammatory and make the skin extra sensitive. In some cases, they can create scales on the skin in which it’s difficult to work with when trying to apply the ink.

There are many people who have tried microblading despite their skin conditions and the results weren’t pretty.

They experienced sensitivity, swelling, redness, and even pain.

It’s best for people with the following conditions to consider another brow option.

  • Those who easily develop allergies

  • People with contact dermatitis

  • People who have keloids or scars

  • Those who have liver disease

  • Women who are pregnant or nursing.

Permanent Makeup – Is It the Right Choice for You?

Permanent makeup treatments, like microblading, are a great option for a lot of people. But this doesn’t mean they’re right for everyone.

Before you invest your money, I invite you to consult with us on the topic. Together, we can determine if you’re a good candidate to proceed with microblading.

With this permanent makeup technique, you will save a ton of time during your daily makeup routine.

If you want to save a ton of time in front of the mirror each day microblading may very well be the right choice for you.
