During a microblading treatment, pigment is added superficially to the skin to create the illusion of new hairs, thus creating wholeness and symmetry. Because of this, skin type plays a big role, but other factors are also important to achieve a good result. When we talk about these factors, we can only start from experience and what applies in general. We can never 100% guarantee a specific result as all individuals are different and heal differently.
But there are still some guidelines to follow, in order to be able to make an assessment as to whether a treatment is suitable or not.
- Skin type
- Medicines and diseases
- Previous pigmentation
Feel free to continue reading on this page to understand if you are a suitable candidate for this particular treatment. Do you still feel insecure? Then send clear, sharp photos (do not take photos with the front camera on the phone, ask someone to help you take good photos, preferably in daylight) to firstname.lastname@example.org for assessment.
Normal to dry skin - This skin type is best suited for microblading and shading. A dry to normal skin type will generally accept the pigment well and the healing will be fine, with clear thin "straws". Combination skin (dry to normal skin that has a tendency to become slightly oily) also generally works well for the treatment.
Mature skin - Mature skin, with some wrinkles, often works well for the treatment and healing is often good. The skin becomes thinner with age and for those of you who are 70+, it is especially important that you do not take any blood-thinning medications to avoid bleeding.
Mature skin with deep and clear wrinkles - If there are a lot of these in the eyebrow area, it can be difficult to achieve a neat result as the wrinkles "disrupt" and can get in the way. Consult by sending clear pictures to email@example.com , or come into the salon.
Rashes and dry patches - we recommend that you refrain from treatment if this is in the eyebrow area as the symptoms may worsen. Consult a doctor and/or skin therapist for treatment.
Sensitive skin that reddens easily, superficial blood vessels - This type of skin becomes easily irritated and red. We also know from experience that it bleeds more easily, which can mean that the pigment does not adhere properly during the treatment. Refrain from treatment if you experience this skin type in the eyebrow area. Consult by sending clear, sharp pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org , or come into the salon.
Rough skin with large pores - Microblading generally heals less well on this skin type. Often much of the pigment is released and there is a risk that the "straws" will flow together and become a little gray in color. Withhold treatment or give it a try! We cannot guarantee a successful result, just as we cannot say that it heals worse on everyone with this skin type.
Oily/greasy skin and oily skin with large pores - This skin type generally heals worse. There is a risk that the pigment will release from the skin quickly and that the "straws" will flow together. If you have oily or combination skin, we recommend the combo treatment , where we combine microblading with shading. Shading generally looks better on oily skin. If you have very oily skin, we advise against performing the treatment. Are you unsure? Consult by sending clear, sharp pictures to email@example.com , or come into the salon.
