Hillcrest Microblading Service: How to Know if You are a Good Candidate

Microblading is fast becoming one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures in Hillcrest and beyond. — after all, our eyebrows are one of the most defining features on our face. Today’s trending eyebrows are fuller, richer and darker, and most people are looking for an exceptional brow they don’t have to fill in every morning.

Am I Good Candidate for Microblading?

You may have heard of microblading or have friends or family members who have had it done and are super happy with their results. And you now may be wondering if it is right for you. When considering microblading, it is important to note that there is a lot that goes into being a good candidate.

As an artist, I always make sure my clients are good candidates before going through with the procedure. I want to be sure to give them the best possible experience and results and want to be sure the results will last for a long while.

Skin Conditions to Discuss with Your Artists Prior to a Procedure

Certain factors such as your age and condition of your skin will determine if microblading is right for you. For example, certain skin conditions may affect the outcome of microblading and may leave you underwhelmed with the results.

For example, if you battle with any of the following skin conditions on your face and suffer from constant skin shedding and unrest, your skin may not be in the right state to be tattooed:

  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis
  • Keratosis pilaris
  • Dermatitis

If you have chronic acne or rosacea, your skin may be more likely to bleed, which can make it hard for the skin to hold onto the color. If you find an artist to work with, make sure to tell her or him if you have any of these skin conditions or if you have overly oily skin. Excessive oil may cause the tattoo strokes to blend or blur together, leaving you with one solid brow instead of a natural textured and feathered look.

Other things to consider is whether you have super sensitive skin, meaning your skin turns red with the slightest scratch. This may mean you are more likely to bleed, which will again affect the color of the tattoo. If you have moles, bumps or scarring from and eyebrow piercing in the eyebrow area, this may also affect the outcome and end result.

Medications that May Affect the Outcome of Microblading

Certain medications or treatments can thin the skin and make it more sensitive and prone to bleeding which will affect how the color absorbs in the skin.

Acne medications such as Accutane and Retinol will affect your results, so may sure to discuss this with your artists ahead of time. If you’ve been using a hair growth product such as Latisse, you will want to stop using it at least 3 – 6 months priors to your procedure.
