Reasons why Microblading might not take
- What your experiencing is the normal part of the healing process. Remember that some loss of pigment is a normal part of the healing process. You should expect about 85% pigment retention before your touch up (about 6 weeks after the initial procedure).
- Your artist didn't go deep enough. If it's been more than 2 weeks and your pigment is gone, then it is most likely NOT normal and related to some other cause. In this case, it may be that your artist did not go deep enough in order to get lasting results. Artist must go into the dermal-epidermal junction.
- You might have an infection. Other factors can interfere with the normal healing process and one of those things is an infection. An infection of the skin will push out the pigment and may result in scarring or other problems.
- Your artist used the wrong color for your skin tone.
- You didn't follow the aftercare instructions.
- You're picking your scabs or interfering with the healing process. If you have a tendency to pick at your skin then this one is extremely important. If you are using the dry healing process then it's absolutely critical that you do NOT pick your scabs. Picking off your scabs will prematurely pull the pigment out.
- You have oily skin. Some people naturally produce more oils than others, but what's important here is that the oil may push out your pigment making your retention less than desirable. If you have really oily skin make sure to discuss that with your artist so you can determine if it's worth undergoing the procedure. In most cases, you can deal with the excess oil production and it won't interfere with your results.
