Cosmetic tattooing is the process of implanting coloured pigment into the dermis layer of the skin by means of tiny, sterile, disposable needles to produce the appearance of hair strokes and makeup, enhancing the natural features of the face. Unfortunately, microblading isn’t best suited for everyone, the overall health and state of your client’s skin will determine whether it has the ability to heal and retain the microblading pigmentation effectively. Here are some common skin conditions that may potentially mean your client’s skin isn’t suitable for microblading!
Skin affected by eczema is highly prone to rashes, redness and itchiness, which will leave your client with uneven and patchy eyebrows.
Clients with chronic acne or rosacea often bleed easily which can affect the retention of the pigments making the microblading results unpredictable and there is no guarantee their eyebrows will stay even and symmetric.
Client’s with oily skin types are often difficult to work with and don’t respond well to microblading strokes. An excess of sebum (oil) can have an effect on their brow strokes and can spread creating a more powdery and blurred look where thin crisp stokes may not be visible. For oily skin, we recommend using one of our powdered cosmetic tattoo effects as it will have longer retention and heal better in their skin.
Fitzpatrick Skin type 1
If your client is a redhead and has thin, translucent skin with light eyes than their skin is very likely to be hypersensitive which means their skin won’t be able to tolerate microblading well.
