16 May Skin Preparation For Microblading
Skin preparation for microblading is just as important as finding the right salon that will do a good quality job. Of course the most important aspect of microblading is getting a technician who knows how to use the tools effectively to make the lines that are created in your skin look like thin hairs, as well as one who understands that if you go too far with it then it will come out looking un-natural. This is why it is so important to research the salon that will be doing your procedure and make sure that they can provide you with some examples of their work. If you are not happy with the way they approach it, you will be stuck with it for at least a few years. The ink is not permanent, but it will last for far longer than you would expect. If you do end up having a procedure that you are not happy with, there are methods of fading the ink, however these are not the most effective thing so they should always be used as a last resort. The best way to assure that you will be happy with your procedure is to make sure that the salon does it well, and has a history of doing good work. You will also need to prepare a little bit as well.
You will be basically getting a tattoo, so the same rules of skin preparation before hand and care afterward will come into play with microblading. You are going to want to avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours before your procedure, and also avoid any drugs that may cause your blood to thin. You are having a needle punch into your skin, so any extra bleeding that would come with thinner blood will want to be avoided. You are also going to want to dry out your skin a little bit in that area, so avoiding moisturizers on your forehead and brow for 24 hours is a good idea. You will also want to cut back on the amount of water you drink the day before. This will allow your skin that is usually moisturized to become slightly dry, which will allow the needle to punch into it more smoothly. Your technician is trying to create lines out of small dots of ink, so the more effectively that the needle can go in and out of the skin the better. Dryer skin allows this more than hydrated skin, which causes the needle to bounce slightly and possibly drag a little bit. This can cause a more spotty and blotchy look than the smooth lines that make up the great microblading procedures you see on Instagram and other social media sites. It is necessary to create a situation where your skin will accept the ink in a fluid way, and also allow the needle to move to the nest position without any drag. Dry skin responds better than hydrated skin, so take these precautions and your procedure will come out great.
