It is vital that the specialist checks the client’s medical history and equally important that the client is 100% open about any medical conditions he or she might suffer from. The consent form should cover a medical checklist to highlight potential risks.

 

Clients with Alopecia / AutoImmune Disorders. Due to the nature of the skin on clients with Alopecia and other Auto-immune disorders, the experience to date has been the pigment retention is only 20% with Microblading with practitioners who perform a Powder Brow with the tattoo machine. Block brow by machine is not a service We offer, favoring the Microblading technique or handtool Softap powder brow, where each hair is drawn in, one by one giving a natural look. Retention from client to client is varying, however retouched could be as frequent as every 6 months to keep the look fresh. Eyebrows are eyebrows, and the procedure is the same on all, once the measurements are done. However very frequent visits are required for the Alopecia and other Auto-immune disorders clients, irrespective of the pigment color used.
It is usual to have the entire eyebrow microbladed at the apt, however occasionally a client may only want/ need a head/base of brow or tails of brows. Some clients who have a tiny bald spot due to a small scar, can have a few hair strokes appied , this will improve the look of an already perfect brow

There is a condition called Pigment Allergy (PPD Allergy, a condition known by dermatologists) or Auto Immune disease symptoms ( the client may not even be aware of it). The skin would have over reacted and become super sensitive to the pigment and reject it at any cost. At a third visit, whereby there is no pigment retention, I would usually advise the client to give the brows a rest and review in 6 months. Sometimes after review my only advice is to go visit a GP or Dermatogist to be checked out. As the skin has 4 stages of healing to undergo, anything past the 3rd Microblading session carries the risk of scarring

We can add more color and more hair strokes on the second visit. This time you can dictate weather you prefer lighter or darker ink. We will design your brows to suite you, be patient everything must settle. It is normal for your brows to look faded during the healing process, the lines will sharpen up after the scabbing process is complete.

• Any removal of dead cells on brow area can cause pre-mature fading.

What to Expect
