Microblading and your skin ……How well will your skin preserve microblading?

How can I know for sure that I will get my money's worth with microblading and ombre brows? You can't tell for sure, but here is a list of signs that your eyebrow tattoo won't stick:


-Very oily skin

-Sun damaged skin, signs of this is pigmentation, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, and thick skin

-Inflammation in the skin such as rosacea, eczema, dermatitis

-Medical conditions in the body that will cause the body to heal slower such as diabetes, hormonal imbalance, cancer, etc.


This list doesn't mean for sure your pigment won't stick. There is really no way to guarantee if pigment will stay in your skin the way we want it to, regardless of any conditions. Some people surprise me with awesome results, for example, even with oily skin. On the other hand, client's with amazing skin have not had such good results. For the most part I get awesome retention.


Body's ability to heal:

Medical conditions can significantly take away your body's ability to heal those brows properly and can take longer to heal, leaving more chance for the pigment to fall out before the skin closes. Hormonal medications and extreme imbalances can cause the pigment to heal with an orange color.


Basically, the healthier you and your skin, the better the results. If you were a sun baby in the past, I would definitely go with a tattoo done by machine work rather than microblading. Permanent eyebrow tattoo done by a machine can last longer if any of these conditions are present.
