How Different Skin Types Affect Microblading

Skin type in microblading refers to how dry or oily your eyebrow area is and your pore size, and it plays a major role in how your microblading will heal and how fast it will fade. Let’s look at what you can expect from microblading, whether you have normal, dry, oily skin or a combination.

Microblading and Skin Types

Microblading is an innovative permanent makeup technique with natural-looking results. The procedure uses a manual tool to implant pigment under your skin to create the appearance of actual eyebrow hair.

Normal Skin

Dermatologists consider normal skin the best type for microblading. Normal skin isn’t prone to breakouts and naturally stays hydrated. Individuals with normal skin tend to heal evenly after microblading, lasting 1 to 1.5 years on average before requiring a touch-up.

Dry Skin

You likely have dry skin if your skin feels tight during the day. Other characteristics of dry skin include occasional flaking and near-invisible pores. After microblading, dry skin typically heals very clean and crisp. Dry skin retains pigmentation the longest at around 1.5 years.

Oily Skin

People with naturally oily skin have larger pores that may clog up more quickly than other skin types. Oily skin stays hydrated and supple with age. After microblading, those with slightly oily skin report that the healing process resembles normal skin, while those with extremely oily skin heal softer, and the color is more spread out.

Combination Skin

Combination skin will feel slightly oily, while the cheeks can feel normal or dry.

Patients who have a combination of skin types heal like those with normal or slightly oily skin because the area is naturally oily.
