Microblading, also known as micro-stroking or feathering, is one of the most common cosmetic procedures aiming to provide people with good-looking, well-defined, natural brows to avoid wearing a lot of makeup.

Our experts at Dermagrafix are asked many questions about microblading. You have the questions; we have the answers. 

How Many Times Can You Microblade Eyebrows?
Microblading effects last from 18 to 30 months. The pigment starts to fade after about 18 months. Once the fading of the pigment becomes noticeable, a touch-up will be needed. The effects differ from person to another according to the skin type and the general look.

When you go to the practitioner once the microblading fades, the preferred color can be filled in simply. However, when you wait longer than the recommended period, the entire microblading procedure will be done again. Of course, the entire microblading procedure is more expensive than filling in the color. That is why it is recommended to stick to the recommended touch-up time. 

What About Oily Skin?
Some people think that microblading is not suitable for oily skin. However, this is not true. If your skin is oily, you still can have microblading. The results last less than the other skin types. 

Oily skin is characterized by a high production of oil or sebum. Too much oil makes the adhesion of the pigment in the eyebrows difficult. 

The pigment does not stay in the eyebrows for a longer time. If you have oily skin, it is important to discuss any concerns you have. After the procedure, your doctor will tell you how long the results will last.

How Long Does Microblading Take to Heal?
The procedure is usually complete after 10 to 14 days. The pigment settles and takes the shape of the eyebrows. Skin sensitivity increases during the microblading process. Immediately after the procedure, the area on the eyebrows will be hot, tender, and sensitive to touch. 

Your doctor will provide you with a list of instructions. Never scratch or pick your eyebrows to prevent introducing any harmful organisms under your skin that may lead to infections and failure of the procedure. In addition, picking your eyebrows may lead to the fading of microblading faster.
