Who Should Avoid Microblading?
While microblading is great for most people, there are some people who are ineligible for microblading:
- Those prone to keloids or post-inflammatory hypopigmentation. Unfortunately, since microblading punctures the skin as we add pigment, we cannot work with clients with these conditions.
- If you have a transmittable blood disease such as HIV or Hepatitis. Again, microblading artists cut the skin so it is our policy not to work with these conditions.
- If you’ve had Juvederm or other fillers in that area. Depending on the timing, we recommend to get microblading first! Otherwise, check with your doctor. Many artists may request a note from your doctor first.
- Patients undergoing chemotherapy. Although microblading is great for restoring eyebrows, we would require a doctor’s note in order to perform the procedure for anyone undergoing chemotherapy.
- If you have any kind of skin condition on or near your eyebrows. This includes eczema, shingles, rashes, or anything else near eyebrows.
- Children. Microblading is for adults only! We do not recommend microblading for anyone under the age of 18. It is our policy at Microblading 102 not to work with children, even with a consent form.
This covers the major things that might exempt you from getting microblading. If you want to see a complete list, please check out our Terms and Conditions
A question we hear all the time is, “Can I get microblading while I’m pregnant?”
Our policy at Eye Candy by Liz & Liz Carrington Microblading Training Center is we do not perform microblading during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. This is the policy for most permanent makeup artists if you research online. In truth, there is very little scientific medical research on tattoo ink and pregnancy, nor is there any research on the pigment we use (the pigment in microblading is different from tattoo ink). Until there is clarity on the subject from medical professionals, our policy remains no.
Then again, if your artist is booked many months in advance, you may need to wait until after pregnancy anyway! 😉
