Ever since Eyebrow Microblading was introduced to Egypt and it has been the center of every beauty talk as the magical solution behind beautiful eyebrows. But sadly to say that microblading in Egypt has used and abused. Based on the number of feedbacks and experiences I get from Egyptian girls who complain about microblading results.
I always recommend micropigmentation as it is more effective than the microblading technique.
Here is a list of the most frequent problem of Microblading in Egypt and why it is not suitable for everyone:
1 Poor hygiene and safety standards
This is the main concern for both client and technician. Beauty is important and getting the perfect brows should never put your health or safety to risk. Clients usually ask about needles but there are many other details you need to be aware of like how everything on the work tray should be either disposable or very well wrapped and covered even the handpiece of the machine.
2 Eyebrow Microblading is not for everyone
Oily and porous skin is the dominant skin type among Egyptians and it is the number one contradiction for Microblading. Performing a wrong technique on wrong skin type will only leave the client with poor-retention gray eyebrows.
Unfortunately, clients are left helpless after many microblading sessions with a blame on their skin that it did not take the color. But whose fault it is of choosing the wrong technique? is it the client or the artist ?!
3 Inefficient tools and low-quality inks
Low-quality ink is used and it is the main reason behind wired brow colors you see around. Low-quality ink tattoo can be easily purchased and if it is implanted deep into the skin, it could last forever. While good quality pigments are regulated especially for the face to fade regularly out of the skin within 2-3 years. Add to this Microblading needles are majorly manufactured in China using and produced under very low-quality products and conditions.
4 Many touchups to get the result
Due to the lack of consultation and skin tests, some people might don’t get the results they are looking for. So many touchups and sessions can have a bad effect on the skin and would cost more money and time. This has been one of the most common feedback and the manual techniques has its limitation, unlike the digital micorpigmentation which has more efficient results from the first session.
5 Getting into the wrong depth of the skin
Microblading is marketed as a superficial technique where color is implanted in the first layer of the skin which is totally wrong because first layer of the skin is the Epidermis which is renewed completely every 10 days meaning if microblading is done within this layer it will completely disappear within 2 weeks! For microblading to last for a good period it has to be implanted in the upper dermis ( second layer of skin ).
6 Scar tissue
Microblading is done using a manual blade that slices the skin using hand pressure in small incisions that imitate the hair. Cutting the skin all in one shot expose the skin to a very high risk of developing scars this is why microblading considered very traumatizing to the skin and can result in scar tissue.
7 Microblading is an old technique
Another myth about microblading is that it is the latest and most advanced technique in beauty world. In fact, this technique is commonly known in Eastern Europe and Latin America due to the nature of the beauty market while Micropigmentation is widely known in Western Europe and America as the latest technique. Microblading is a time-worn technique originated in the back alleys of northern China and known in Asia with another name “Embroidery”.
8 Nothing else to offer than Microblading
Beauty Salons in Egypt offer Microblading as the only solution they have to save your eyebrows. But what if you are not suitable for the technique? What if you have oily skin? Do they carry any other solution for your eyebrows ?? Needless to say that eyebrow world has many more to offer than microblading and professionals always have more than one technique to give you that pair of beautiful eyebrows you’ve always dreamed about.
9 Removal first, Microblading second
Tattoo removal in Egypt is becoming so popular due to the high demand of everyone wants to get microblading. Referring all potential client who has an old previous tattoo removal and using different products some of them are really dangerous and leaving second-degree and scars like Rejuvi.
10 Poor aftercare
Finally comes client role by following aftercare instructions and paying great attention to their eyebrows like always wear SPF on their eyebrows when exposing to the sun. All these play a great role in prolonging your eyebrow microblading
