How to Minimize Microblading Risks



Microblading is a manual skill and we are all just humans. Of course, errors can also occur with prudent and trained pigmenters. But how high is the risk?

Are there any health risks with microblading? Do the eyebrows look terrible in the end? What can you do if a customer doesn’t like the microblading? Is it possible to remove a microblading and if so, how?

The manual method of pigmentation has now been applied and perfected thousands of times. With hygienically correct operation and observance of contraindications like expert microblading Manchester customers would appreciate, there are only a few health risks, which the customer can also minimize herself. Of course, a fresh microblading is a wound that should be cared for accordingly to prevent infections. You can read how to do this correctly here.

But what if you don’t like the microblading after the treatment? Many customers first have to get used to their new eyebrows. The change in the face is usually not properly assessed before the treatment. For us pigmenters, it is therefore important to prove knowledge of human nature at this point and to have confidence in our work. It is important to distinguish whether the customer is really dissatisfied and a correction is necessary, or she only has adaptation difficulties.

Corrections of microblading are usually problem-free if you know what correction options there are and how to apply them correctly. Let’s take a look at the possible errors and the associated corrections together.

  • The color input is poor and parts of the pigmentation have fallen out in the healing phase. The source of error is usually to be found in technology. Only rarely is it due to the material used or the skin of the customer? Especially inexperienced microbladers have difficulties hitting the right skin layer for permanent storage of the color pigments. The correction is very simple. The fallen hairs are pulled in a post-treatment about 14 to 21 days after the new installation.
  • The color of microblading is not stable. The pigmentation has become red or gray. Here, the source of the error does not lie with the pigmenter. No tattoo color is stable in the skin in the long run. The smaller molecules are first metabolized and transported away via the lymphatic system. The large molecules remain in the skin. Depending on the color composition used, a grayish or a red color cast can develop after one year. It is important to inform customers about these changes. The correction is very simple. In the normal refresh of microblading, a corresponding complementary color is used to compensate for the color deviation. In case of a gray color change, an orange tone should therefore be used. If the pigmentation has become reddish, it must be corrected with a cool shade of green.
  • A hair has become too long or too wide. The customer wants it removed. Here it is important how long ago the new system was made. If the customer has arrived within 48 hours, the pigment Vanish can be used. The pigment Vanisher can dissolve the color pigments of a fresh microblading. For this purpose, the hair is opened again with a clean blade and the Vanisher is incorporated with the help of a microrod. Some of the pigments are spun out immediately. The rest of the pigmentation then disappears during the healing phase within 14 days. We have already successfully removed an entire pigmentation from a very unhappy customer from a third-party studio.
  • If the pigmentation was more than 48 hours ago, minor corrections can be removed using a correction color. The correction color is incorporated into the annoying hair with the blade and ideally covers the old, underlying color. It should be noted here that skin colors (also called camouflage) can also change over the years. Some become yellowish or whitish. It is a repair measure that has its disadvantages.

The conclusion is that there is a way open for almost every correction. However, it is important to have learned these sometimes demanding techniques beforehand. I hope this article was helpful for you and wish that you can do without corrective measures as much as possible.
