What Is the Impact of Your Skin Type on Microblading?
It is crucial to know your skin type before you have microblading done. That’s because it can have a significant impact on how quickly your microblading fades and how well it heals.
In microblading, skin type refers to how oily or dry your brow area is, as well as the size of your pores. Normal, dry, oily, and combination skin types are the most common. Although not a skin type, sensitivity is an essential aspect of your skin. So, know you skin type before choosing an eyebrow microblading service.
What are the different types of skin, and how do they heal?
Skin Type: Normal
If you don’t have breakouts and your t-zone stays moisturized, you may have normal skin. Your t-zone runs horizontally across your brows and vertically down the center of your face.
The color will last an average amount of time on regular skin types and will recover uniformly. You should anticipate waiting 1 to 1.5 years before you need to touch up.
Skin Type: Dry
If your pores are virtually invisible and your skin feels tight throughout the day, you may have dry skin. From time to time, you may notice some flaking.
Any permanent makeup application on dry skin will heal quickly and completely. That is true for microblading in particular. After microblading, hair strokes will heal very crisply.
Dry skin also holds its color the longest, generally more than a year. That is because fewer oils pass through the skin, which reduces the dilution or fading of pigment.
Skin Type: Combination
In combination skin, your t-zone will feel hydrated. Your t-zone runs horizontally across your brows and vertically down the center of your face. Your cheeks may feel drier, and you may experience some flaking.
Because the brow area is often oilier than the rest of the face, combination skin heals like normal or somewhat oily skin. All other permanent cosmetics (eyeliner, lips) will heal the same way as regular skin.
Skin Type: Oily
Oily skin is more moisturized and supple by nature. It has an excellent ability to mature gracefully. However, too much oil can clog pores more rapidly. Large pores are also common in greasy skin.
The skin that is oily will heal the quickest. An oily skin heals more like regular skin, but overly oily skin heals more softly and has a more diffused color.
An experienced microblading artist knows how to place the strokes further apart for oily skin.
Skin Type: Sensitive
Sensitivity can cause a minor pinkness that lasts for several days or weeks longer than it would with other types. It is also possible that some minor swelling may occur on the day of surgery, which is unusual for people with other skin types.
Aftercare for Microblading
There are some standard aftercare instructions that you should follow regardless of your skin type. Depending on your artist’s preferences, your aftercare may differ. Thus, selecting an expert and reliable eyebrow microblading service is critical.
