What to do next, if you hate your new Permanent Makeup procedure.





Q:  What do you do when you absolutely hate your Permanent Makeup Brows?

A:  For new brows:  Be patient.  Permanent Makeup brow procedures take minimum 2 weeks to heal.  The brows will go through major transformation within the next few days.  The pigment may get darker, but then the scab forms.  Once the scab peels, the pigment should look lighter.

If the shape is not ideal, most brow shape can be modified.  They may not be perfect, but there's always room for improvement.  Find a Permanent Makeup Artist that specialize in correction procedures.

If the color needs to be altered, that too can be modified.  They can be lightened or darkened by a Permanent Makeup Correction Specialist.

We want our eyes to be the focal point, not our brows.  When brow shape and color is good, your eyes should stand out.  Try to stay conservative and classic in brow style.  Do not follow trends.  Fashion magazines are trying to WOW you.  They are going bold to emphasize their products. Trends come and go, but your permanent makeup may linger for years.

Why does my Microblade brows look solid?

Microblade strokes (incisions) are extremely fine in width.  The gauge of the needles are extremely thin.  Tattoo artists have to create "hair-like strokes" that are extremely close together.  When the procedure is initially completed, you will see all the pigmented incisions separated to achieve realistic brow hairs.

Now comes the healing process.  According to Wikapedia,

Anatomical terminology

Sebaceous glands are microscopic exocrine glands in the skin that secrete an oily or waxy matter, called sebum, to lubricate and waterproof the skin and hair of mammals. 

Your skin secretes sebum.  It is usually clear in color and sticky to the touch.  Once the sebum dries, it hardens to form a scab.  It is a way for your skin to protect your wound.

Under the scab, your skin is trying to repair itself.  When microblade strokes (incisions) are placed too closely together, the pigment will blur and blend onto the surrounding strokes.  Meaning, the initial sharp crisp stroke may not stay well defined after your skin repairs itself. It bleeds onto the next stroke.  What determines how a stroke heals varies from skin to skin, and how close the strokes are placed. If you would like wispier looking brows, the stokes should be placed farther apart.

Microblade is not for all skin types.  Mature, thin, or wrinkled skin is delicate.  Microblade may be too aggressive and invasive.  Softap hairstokes will be a better solution.  It is gentler on the skin.  Instead of the incisions, the needles have an up/down motion.
