Revision Microblading Seattle & Tacoma
Permanent makeup is a growing trend where various parts of the face are enhanced with semi-permanent pigments. This helps reduce the patient’s makeup routine and look presentable without much makeup on. For many busy moms and those in the entertainment industry, this is an attractive prospect. However, it can sometimes go wrong. Thankfully, the experts at Seattle Plastic Surgery can help correct cosmetic issues with microblading and help prevent them in the future. The microblading artists at Seattle Plastic Surgery provide the best revision microblading Seattle offers.
The Technicality Behind Microblading
Microblading is similar in concept to tattooing. Though, there are a few differences. For example, microblading uses a slanted blade made up of multiple needles. The pigment—or ink—used is also semi-permanent versus permanent like with tattoos. Microblading requires certain techniques and technical knowledge that our microblading artists spent years curating.
First, like with traditional tattoos, you get what you pay for. Do not go someplace simply for the price. One of the ways that people can offer microblading for exceptionally cheap is by using cheap, low quality pigments. These often contain metals that can turn the brows an unnatural color such as red or green. Thankfully, this is correctable.
At Seattle Plastic Surgery, our pigments are vegan, high quality, and do not contain the metals known to cause brow discoloration. Therefore, you are unlikely to see unexpected discoloration in three months.
When it comes to the proper technique for microblading there are two main facets: limiting trauma and the three-point stretch. Limiting trauma leads to better healed results and prevents scarring. While scarring is rare, causing too much trauma to the skin can cause it. The way to do this is to change the settings of the microblading tool and maintain gentle pressure.
The three-point stretch is a specific way to stretch the skin that prevents an unnatural result. If you stretch the skin on way, this can lead to the stroke looking out of place. The three-point stretch prevents this by essentially creating a flat surface that your artist can work off of. Also, the stretch is better for your skin than other methods.
The Golden Ratio
The Golden Ratio is a mathematical concept that is often found in nature. It is also frequently found in things that humans have historically found beautiful. Your brow artist can apply this ratio to your face and brow area. This allows for optimal placement and shaping to prevent asymmetry. It also makes it more likely that your brows will better fit your facial features.
