The top 10 Common Problems of Eyebrow Microblading in Egypt

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

The Healing Process Of Digital Eyebrow Micropigmentation

I got many questions asking how my eyebrows going to look like after the eyebrow micropigemnation treatment, and when I will be able to see the final look of my brows.

It is very important for the client to know what to expect during the healing process which lasts 4-6  and can be categorized into five major phases:

Phase One

This phase lasts only for the first few hours following the treatment. In which you may experience redness, swelling, skin sensitivity and oozing plasma ( clear body liquid ). These symptoms usually settle down within few hours and should not last more than 24 hours. At this stage, the eyebrows look thicker and darker than the final brow look.

Tip: the Oozing plasma on your eyebrows is what helps in building thick scabs and causes poor color retention. Therefore it’s important to blot dry the treated area on the first day.

Phase Two

The first four days following the digital microblading treatment while your eyebrows still look darker and thicker. You begin to feel the treated area is drying out, and the upper layer of the skin starts to build a scab preparing to flake off.

Tip: To prevent extreme dryness you have to clean and moisturize your eyebrows 2-3 times per day with aftercare product given in the treatment. Be careful not to apply too much product – you don’t want to suffocate your eyebrow microblading!

Phase Three

This phase is characterized mainly by flaking and peeling off the top layer of the treated area which usually starts at day 5 and lasts for 3-5 days. Please note that some skin types tend to elongate this phase. The top layer of the skin should peel off in fine sections if the client is following the aftercare plan correctly.

Tip: The eyebrows may tend to be itchy during this phase. Don’t pick! Keep them moisturized to calm down the itchiness.

Phase Four

This phase is called the milky film and usually happens in the second week after pretty-much all your eyebrows peeled off. in this phase the brow color looks light and grayish, hair-strokes seem to be cloudy and dull.

The reason behind this phase is a very fine layer of dead skin still covering the color underneath. But this will naturally flake away within few days and the color starts to bloom.

Tip: Don’t panic! This is only a temporary and natural phase.

Phase Five

You are almost there! This is the last phase of your digital eyebrow micropigemntation healing process which usually lasts between 3-6 weeks of the initial procedure. In this stage, color starts to bloom back and hair strokes look more clear and crisp.

Tip: This is a very important phase of your skin to fully heal and repair itself. You can then contact your semi-permanent makeup artist to arrange a touchup session to correct any problems such as patchy spots or fading.

In conclusion, it is difficult to say when micropigemntation is fully healed because everybody heals differently and not necessarily to go through all previous phases. But certainly following aftercare instructions carefully helps in smooth healing and good results.

10 Questions To Ask Before Getting Permanent Eyebrow Makeup

Wondering about semi-permanent eyebrow makeup (PMU)? It doesn’t matter if you like them thick or thin, straight or arched. Eyebrows are the most important feature of the face. If you are not satisfied with your eyebrows, you can always reshape them using pencil, gel or even tattooing.

Permanent Makeup Vs. Semi-Permanent Makeup

People might be confused about the two terms but according to the health department at the United States, both treatments are considered permanent. Globally the permanent makeup artists use different names for the treatment due to cultural differences, artistic styles, and marketing terms. Even in the U.S., the cosmetic tattoo regulations vary from state to state as well as in Europe. In conclusion, the permanent or semipermanent procedure is defined as the treatment that lasts for around 18 months.

The shape is determined according to face structure, eye shape, a distance between eyes and the golden ratio.
