Can Anyone Do Microblading?
The latest trend to achieve the eyebrows you’ve always dreamed of is commonly referred to as microblading. If you have been considering ways that you can get the same look with minimal morning effort, microblading could be the solution for you. Unlike other beauty routines, this isn’t one that can be tackled from the comfort of your own home. You need to find someone who is specifically trained to offer this service.
Anyone can technically do microblading as long as they have received the proper training. It doesn’t require an advanced degree or a doctor to actually perform the procedure. However, anyone who administers this beauty service needs to be experienced in how to handle safety and sanitation, the equipment, and more. Anesthetics for this procedure might be necessary, so they should know to administer them to each patient properly.
Everyone should have to undergo a fair number of classes focused on facial morphology and the best way to shape the brows and color them. After all, you want someone to give you a set of eyebrows that look great instead of just mediocre. They won’t be able to change the appearance once the procedure is finished.
Consider the fact that microblading is essentially a form of tattooing. It tends to look more natural than other efforts to tattoo the eyebrows on, but it still requires a certain degree of finesse. If your new eyebrows are going to be relatively permanent, do you really want them applied by someone who is less than qualified to perform the services you want?
The odds are that you want to head to someone who is an actual professional who has been trained and taught how to apply your permanent makeup. We would highly recommend the same thing. Don’t allow anyone to perform your microblading if they haven’t been trained.
How do you know if your professional is actually qualified to offer microblading? Unlike other services that may allow just anyone to hang out their shingle as an “expert,” more detailed qualifications exist for microblading. Ask about what certification classes they attended to learn how to administer microblading.
Most programs will require 100 hours of training in addition to a Blood Borne Pathogen certification. Depending on your area, a professional could be required to take more than 300 hours’ worth of training in order to become expertly qualified for microblading. They might even be eligible to sign up for an apprenticeship first, allowing them to practice under the supervision of an expert.
You might also want to ask whether they have joined any societies or professional organizations dedicated to these services. For example, a specialist for microblading might join the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals.
