OILY SKIN : Oily skin is a not uncommon. For those of us who use eyebrow pencils or brushes, we often have to find certain products that work with our skin type. Microblading is completely safe for people with oily skin. Most people, after getting microblading done, need to make sure that the area is moisturized. In this case, those of us with oily skin don't necessarily have to be as strict about using a lotion or ointment during the healing process.
PREGNANT OR NURSING : Microblading while nursing or pregnant is generally not advised. This is because, if not properly maintained, an infection could arise which could threaten the health of your baby. Additionally, microblading while pregnant is not advised due to bodily changes that occur during and after pregnancy. The results you see immediately after the procedure may not look the same six months after you have given birth.
ALOPECIA : Alopecia is a condition in which hair falls out in patches, which sometimes come together to create bald spots. Not only does this affect the hair on your head, it can also affect the eyebrows and eyelashes. Microblading is an easy and effective way for people with alopecia to restore color, shape, and the general appearance of their eyebrows.
REDHEADS : A lot of people with red hair are curious if microblading will be able to accommodate their natural eyebrow color. Having too light of eyebrows is a common dilemma for redheads (especially with eyebrow pencils having limited color options). At Lash and Blade, we are often microblading people with red hair. We have a variety of red and orange ink that we are able to customize to match to your perfect color.
THYROID MEDICATION : Certain medications may have an impact on the results and longevity of microblading. For example, those who are taking thyroid medication during a microblading procedure have noted that it affects the color and the hold of the pigment. They will likely need more frequent touch-ups to maintain the same results. If you have any concerns due to the medication that you are taking, it is always best to consult with your doctor before moving forward with microblading.
Microblading is a wonderful beauty enhancement for people of all walks of life. If you're unsure whether microblading is for you, we are always available to answer your questions or address any concerns that you may have.
