Can my microblading be corrected

We often receive requests to correct microblading. Many consumers have watched YouTube videos of microblading eyebrows or have found them on Facebook or Instagram and fell in love with what they saw. How many of those videos and pictures have you seen that are actually healed work? Few. Why?  Because most of the microbladed eyebrows end up looking gray or blue in the skin and often, the brows end up with scars from the blades.

Most of the technicians that jumped into this industry in the last four years wanting to become microbladers are now seeking additional training to learn powder and ombre brows because their clients are unhappy with their long-term results. Ombre brows will be the next thing clients want fixed because in the end, no one really wants 8/10ths of a brow. Ombre is also beautiful in the immediately after photo, but in six months, clients are wanting more color in that bulb.

 “Can you do anything for eyebrows that are gray or blue?”

Our answer is you are never without hope, but the process may be lengthy. You will need to schedule a consultation or email quality photos of your brows in good lighting before a treatment plan can be determined. The options for the brows will either involve a series of saline based removal treatments, laser treatments, or color correction with a powder brow.

“Can you do anything for my microbladed scars?”

Yes, as a registered nurse, Shanan can perform a series of medical microneedling sessions to rebuild the scaffolding of collagen and elastin thus reducing scar tissue.

“Why is my microblading now orange and can it be corrected?”

Most pigments were manufactured for a powder brow in mind. Because microblading and hairstrokes often heal very cool, the colors needed to be modified using a little bit of warmth in the color blend in attempt to prevent the strokes from healing gray or blue. As the color aged out, the warm color was the color left in the skin. This can be color corrected.

“Why have my strokes blurred?”

There is no way to prevent this from happening. They will always blur over time. Look at your grandfather’s tattoo….the lines are no longer crisp. The same will happen with microblading and hairstrokes, usually within a few months they will begin to lose their crispness. The best option for you at this point is a beautiful soft powder brow.
