1. Experience & Proper Training(s)
The right training(s) and experience are crucial when it comes to choosing your micro-blading artist. The artist should also know skin conditions and allergies to advise you accordingly, as not everyone is suitable for micro-blading. Therefore, they must ask about your skin and health conditions to avoid any possible reactions.
2. Look out for reviews
Look for before & after photos of the treatment and customer’s positive reviews. Microblading looks beautiful when freshly done, but healed results are always a better indicator of the skill. Even better if you know someone who has done the treatment with the artist. Nothing beats a real-life experience!
3. Book a consultation
Meeting and speaking to your artist is essential before deciding on your treatment with them. During the meeting, you should be able to find out more on point number one. Visiting their working space and monitor the cleanliness of their working space is crucial as well. Having a clean working space is your priority.
4. Ask questions
Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Do ask about the type of pigment & blade used for each treatment. What happens to pigment after a year and if they would change in color. Check if the artist is using pre-sterilized, sealed disposable tools, or reusable micro-blading handles. A reusable micro-blading handle should be sterilized between clients, and a new blade should be used for each treatment.
Generally, an excellent micro-blading artist may cost a bit more because of the time and effort they spent on perfecting their skills, and their schedule may seem tight. You might have to wait, but it’s worth it.
