The top 10 Common Problems of Eyebrow Microblading in The Middle East

Ever since Eyebrow Microblading was introduced to the Middle East, it has been the center of every beauty talk as the magical solution behind beautiful eyebrows. But sadly, microblading has been used and abused. Based on the number of feedback and experiences I get from Arabic 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 problems with microblading in the Middle East and why it is not suitable for everyone:

1 Poor hygiene and safety standards

This is the main concern for both the client and the technician. Beauty is important, and getting the perfect brows should never put your health or safety at 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 Arabs, including Egyptians, Saudis, Gulf nationals, and North Africans in general, and it is the number one contraindication for microblading. Performing the wrong technique on the wrong skin type will only leave the client with poor-retention gray eyebrows.
Unfortunately, clients are left helpless after many microblading sessions with the blame on their skin that it did not take the color. But whose fault is it for 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 the wired brow colors you see around. Low-quality ink tattoo can be easily purchased, and if it is implanted deeply into the skin, they 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 not 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 pieces of feedback and the manual techniques have their limitations, unlike the digital micro pigmentation 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 the 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 is 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 the 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 that originated in the back alleys of northern China and is known in Asia by another name “Embroidery”.

8 Nothing else to offer than Microblading

Beauty Salons in the Middle East 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 much 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 Arab countries is becoming so popular due to the high demand from everyone who wants to get microblading. Referring to all potential client who has old previous tattoo removal and using different products some of them are really dangerous and leave second-degree scars like Rejuvi.

10 Poor aftercare

Finally, comes the client’s role by following aftercare instructions and paying great attention to their eyebrows like always wearing SPF on their eyebrows when exposed to the sun. All these play a great role in prolonging your eyebrow microblading
