Microblading FAQs

  • What is Microblading?
    Microblading is a type of cosmetic tattooing that involves delicately implanting pigment under the skin to create the illusion of natural-looking hair strokes. To complete the process, you need to have at least two sessions. The second session should be scheduled 8-12 weeks after the first treatment. If you need more sessions to achieve your desired results, they must be done within 8-12 weeks of the previous session. It's important to note that this tattooing technique uses pigments instead of ink, which is why it tends to fade faster than traditional permanent makeup. To ensure the longevity of your microblading results, it's recommended to obtain a touch-up every year. However, if you're not pleased with the outcome, laser or chemical treatment can be a viable option for removal. While microblading is generally safe, there is a rare chance of an allergic reaction triggered by the topical anesthetic used during the procedure, nickel in tattoo needles, or certain pigments used in the process. At Tactical Aesthetics, we prioritize safety by using disposable tools that are discarded after use, as well as following strict cross-contamination procedures. It's crucial to follow the recommended aftercare instructions to avoid wound infections during the healing process. Overall, microblading can be an excellent option for those looking to enhance their eyebrows' appearance with a long-lasting, natural-looking solution. At Tactical Aesthetics, we are committed to providing a safe and satisfactory experience for our clients.
  • Will Microblading Work Well For Me?
    If you happen to have oily skin, it's important to note that the hair stroke eyebrow technique may not result in the desired outcome. Oily skin produces constant oil, which can cause the hair strokes to appear diffused, resulting in a softer and more powdered look than what may have been initially expected. Moreover, if you have very little or no natural hair, the tattooed eyebrows may come out flatter in comparison to those who have more natural hair. It's worth mentioning that clients who smoke frequently may witness quicker fading of the pigment, and those who are anemic or iron deficient may experience fading of the pigment, as well as bleeding and bruising during and after the procedure. Finally, kindly note that if you have previously tattooed eyebrows, a guarantee for satisfactory results may not be feasible. In instances where the previous work is too dark, dense, discolored, or large, tattoo removal may be recommended before considering the use of my services. Additionally, previously tattooed areas will typically require additional sessions, which will be charged accordingly.
  • What Factors Will Affect The Results of Microblading?
    In order to maintain the longevity of your tattoo, it is imperative that you take necessary precautions to protect it from sun exposure. Post healing, the use of sunblock is highly recommended to prevent any discoloration or fading. Note that certain colors may fade quicker than others, and tattoos on the face may lose their intensity faster due to constant exposure. To ensure a successful tattooing experience, it is advisable to abstain from consuming alcohol and medications that thin the blood prior to and after your appointment. This can help minimize bleeding during the procedure and promote better healing. The first two weeks after the tattooing process are crucial for proper aftercare. It is essential to avoid any activities that can cause excessive sweating, as this can affect the appearance of hair strokes when they are fully healed. If you suffer from Anemia or low iron, it is important to take note that this may influence the way your body reacts to the pigment, potentially causing hair strokes to fade or a change in hue due to your body absorbing the iron oxide in the pigment. It is recommended that you speak to your doctor before getting a tattoo if you have concerns about any medical conditions or medications that may impact the healing process.
  • What Are Some Of The Contraindications To Consider?
    Prior to getting a tattoo on your eyebrows, it is imperative to take note that any skin that is injured, inflamed, or irritated is unsuitable for tattooing. Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis that cause flaking, itching, or shedding of the skin are not conducive to tattooing. Rosacea, which is characterized by acne-like redness, bleeding skin, and poor pigment retention, should also be avoided. Additionally, any raised areas such as moles and deep wrinkles in the eyebrow area will not retain color well. It's crucial to keep in mind certain contraindications when considering skin treatments. It is noteworthy, for instance, that individuals who have undergone hair transplants in their eyebrows may encounter problems with pigment retention in the plug areas. Similarly, individuals belonging to Fitzpatrick Skin Type 1, which includes people with red hair, those with translucent skin, and light-colored eyes, may experience issues with pigment retention owing to their skin's hypersensitivity and thinness. Moreover, individuals who have taken Accutane for acne within the past year may have difficulty with skin healing and would need to wait a year before undergoing any further treatment. Prior to receiving a tattoo, it is important to consider any medical conditions that may be contraindicated. These conditions include but are not limited to pregnancy or nursing, hemophilia or any other bleeding disorder, heart conditions or the use of a pacemaker/defibrillator, blood-thinning medications, thyroid conditions, and taking medication for it, as well as trichotillomania. It is also worth noting that individuals who are at-risk or sensitive due to changes in hormone levels or have a body that runs hot may experience increased bleeding, which can prevent proper pigment deposit. Moreover, for those with trichotillomania, the scar tissue that results from constant pulling may make it difficult for pigment to heal evenly or properly. Therefore, it is recommended that individuals speak with their healthcare provider prior to getting a tattoo to ensure safe and proper healing. In the event that you are taking any of the medications listed, it is possible that you may experience excessive bleeding and that the pigment may not retain. These medications include but are not limited to Accutane, Retina-A, Retinol, Tretinoin, Zioptan, Latisse, Coumadin, Plavix, Xalatan, Ticlid, Pletal, Brilinta, Travaton Z, Disgren, Persantine, Xarelto, Savaysa, Dibigatran, Apixaban, Effient, and Zontivity. It is important to be aware of these potential side effects and discuss any concerns with your healthcare provider.
  • How Do I Prepare For Microblading?
    PRE-PROCEDURE INSTRUCTIONS It is crucial to take the necessary precautions to ensure that your microblading appointment is successful and without any complications. Two weeks prior to your appointment, it is important to be mindful of actions that could potentially remove the pigment, such as skin exfoliation due to sunburn or certain skincare products. To avoid this, steer clear of sun exposure and tanning beds, as well as any products that contain Tretinoin/Retinol. Additionally, avoid using growth conditioners like Latisse on your eyebrows, as the hair follicles can be delicate and easily bleed during the procedure. If you get Botox or Dysport, wait a full two week before having microblading done. As your appointment approaches, avoid taking blood-thinning medication or supplements 1 week prior to treatment. This includes Vitamin E, Omega-3, Cod Liver Oil, Flax Oil, Garlic, Turmeric, Ginkgo Biloba, Advil, Aleve, Ibuprofen, Motrin Aspirin, Niacin, and Fish Oil. If pain medication is needed, use Tylenol. However, it is important to consult with your physician before stopping any medication. If you suffer from allergies or sinusitis, please make sure your symptoms are under control before treatment. Additionally, limit your caffeine intake and abstain from alcohol during this period. If you have naturally light or grey hair and tint your brows, it is recommended that you do so at least 3 days before your appointment. By taking these steps, you can ensure that your microblading appointment is safe, effective, and yields the desired results. It is strongly advised that you allow yourself a complete two-week period for proper recuperation following the procedure.
  • How Do I Take Care Of My Brow After Microblading?
    POST-PROCEDURE INSTRUCTIONS Prior to tending to your brows, it is essential to wash your hands thoroughly and gently cleanse your brows twice a day using the aftercare wash provided. After ensuring that your brows are completely dry, apply a thin layer of the supplied barrier cream. It is crucial to avoid exposing the area to direct sunlight during the healing process and to resist any temptation to apply cosmetics or engage in activities that cause sweating for a minimum of 14 days. Furthermore, it is advisable to keep the area clean and allow it to breathe without any restrictions. WHAT TO EXPECT: After your procedure, you may notice that your brows appear darker and more defined. This is because the healing process has not yet taken place. It is normal to experience mild discomfort and a sunburned feeling in the treated area. During the initial healing period, there may be some dryness or flaking on the skin. The complete healing process typically takes about eight weeks. During this time, your brows will gradually soften and lighten in color. It's important to be patient and avoid worrying if you notice some color loss. Your skin is still regenerating and naturally exfoliating, which may affect the final outcome. Wait at least eight weeks before assessing the final color. WHAT NOT TO DO: You can take a shower or bath as usual, but for the first two weeks after getting your brows tattooed, avoid soaps, shampoos, or other cleansers on your brows. These products can harm the bonding process that's necessary for the pigment to stabilize in the dermis. It's important not to pick at any dry skin or flakiness that may occur. Let the skin shed naturally to avoid scarring or premature loss of pigment. After any flakes have shed, a shiny layer of healing skin will completely cover the hair strokes. This may make it look like the tattooed area has disappeared, but within 1-2 weeks, the hair strokes will slowly reappear at a lighter shade as your skin regenerates. Don't use makeup on your brows for the first two weeks, as cosmetics of any kind can interfere with healing and the color of your brows. Avoid using Vaseline, Neosporin, or other petroleum-based products while healing. For one month following the procedure, don't bleach, tint, or dye the brows. It's also important not to use any anti-acne products, such as Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid on the brows. ONCE HEALED: To prevent fading and discoloration of your tattooed brows from sun exposure, use sunscreen and wear a hat and oversized sunglasses. Additionally, make sure to rinse and dry the area thoroughly after swimming in a chlorine pool. To avoid lightening the pigment, avoid using skin exfoliating products near the brows. If you plan to have laser treatments performed near your brows inform the technician beforehand as the procedure may affect the appearance of the tattooed area. After your brows have fully healed, any necessary changes or additions to your brows should not be made sooner than eight weeks. Brow Shaping can be done two weeks after treatment and Brow Tinting and Brow Lamination can be done one month after microblading. Contact me with any questions or concerns at 478-731-8298. Enjoy your new brows!
