Permanent Makeup vs Your Skin
Your skin and the role it plays in permanent makeup, the work won’t always heal the way you envision it if you have problematic skin.
Let us explain why.
– Did you know that our SKIN is the human body’s largest organ?
– Did you know our skin sheds dead cells every day, even when we are sleeping?
– The human body is a natural exfoliator that creates a new layer of skin every 28 days.
Skin colour can range from pale to dark, depending on how much melanin the body makes. Every human body has the same number of cells but not everyone will produce the same amount of melanin. The more melanin we produce, the darker our skin becomes.
Human skin contains 50 million bacteria per square inch. If your face is an oily skin type, that number can sky rocket to 500 million!
If there is over production of cells lining the sweat glands, it leads to acne formation.
OILY & LARGE PORES
Oily skin or Seborrhea is caused by an excess of sebum in our skin. For those who have oily skin, the best option would be an ombre or combo brow.
For those with oily skin, microblading or ‘hairstroke’ brows will never heal to the ideal crisp strokes. Once healed, the result will end up being blurred strokes or they just won’t heal at all due to the excess oil in the skin.
Doing a combo or ombre brow will end up having a more natural look that will last for years to come.
Acne is an inflammatory skin condition that affects the skin oil glands and hair follicles.
For those with active acne, the excess oil or sebum makes it nearly impossible to have great healed results with permanent makeup. If you are on any topical creams that thin the skin or have been on medication, that can also affect the healed results. Even if your body tattoos healed with no issues, the face is much different than the rest of the body.
Rosacea is a chronic and often progressive skin disease that usually affects the face, but can extend down to the neck, chest, and back. Rosacea most commonly starts with frequent blushing or flushing and can eventually cause your skin to be red all the time.
The redness of the skin can cause the pigment to heal more ‘ashy’ or ‘cool’ so you may need an additional touch-up to achieve the perfect colour.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition where cells build up quickly on the skin’s surface. This leads to raised patches of skin that develop silver scales that can be itchy, irritated and painful.
Psoriasis is rare on the face but there is a chance that it can develop on the brow area by breaking the skin. If that happens the area will turn very flakey and most likely the colour will be rejected from the skin. If there is a chance of psoriasis, we can do a ‘patch’ test and see how your skin reacts.
When considering having your eyebrows microbladed, there are many factors that can affect the desired outcome, skin being the largest factor of all.
We suggest booking a complimentary consultation with one of our talented technicians to discuss what your best option is for your skin type.
