So you have seen a lot of work that is freshly done but how does it look after it heals? Before you get your microblading in Vernon you might want to learn more about healed permanent makeup!
To perfect permanent makeup up you typically need two sessions. There are a variety of factors that play into how your permanent brows, lips or liner heal.
Skin type is a big one. For people with oily skin, it is almost always better to go with powder or combo brows! Microblading might not be your best choice. Oil in the skin tends to get under the pigment and pushes it to the surface.
Powder brows are created with a micro-pigmentation machine that deposits small amounts of pigment at a time into the skin. The pigment is implanted in such small quantities which makes it more difficult for the oil to move the pigment out of the skin.
Microblading on the other hand deposits the pigment as lines into the skin. This makes it easier for the oil to move the pigment to the surface of the skin. This means as your skin turns over the colour will come out faster.
Powder brows for the win on oily skin types!
Mature, damaged or thin skin may also not be suitable for microblading. To create smooth crips lines you need tight healthy young skin. Don’t worry! If this sounds like you we can still do powder brows! They are suitable for way more skin types.
If you are unsure then please book a consultation and we can discuss your options!
Aftercare plays a huge role in how your skin will retain the pigment, especially in the initial two weeks while your skin is still healing. At Studio Ki we use a natural Canadian made product that helps create a barrier on the skin from any free radicals and promotes healing.
It is your job to apply the aftercare products provided as well as follow the specific instruction given to achieve the best results possible.
Lifestyle is also a factor for the longevity of your new look! The sun can affect the way permanent makeup in the Okanagan heals. Wear sunscreen or a hat to help maintain your permanent brows, lips or liner. Remember the sun makes your skin darker but it makes your tattoos and permanent makeup lighter!
Studio Ki carries tattoo specific sunblocks that will help you maintain the best results with your microblading, permanent makeup or body tattoos. That’s So sunscreen is buildable so you always have the right amount of coverage for every area!
One spray gives you 20 SPF, two gives you 30 SPF and three sprays give you 50 SPF! It’s a buildable sunscreen so you can get some rays where you want them and block them where you don’t!
Photos of healed permanent makeup
Lastly, make sure the artist you choose has some photos not only of their fished work but what it looks like when it’s fully healed permanent makeup! This is important as not all work heals equally.
Fresh permanent make-up will heal softer, lighter and cooler in colour and it is up to your artist to determine what the best colour and stroke size will be. Due to so many variables in the skin, it is difficult to know just how much it will change. This is why photographs and notes will be taken at your initial appointment. After your initial session and see how it heals we can perfect your permanent makeup at your 6 weeks touch up!
