Eyebrow Microblading for Cancer Survivors
1. WHY DO CANCER PATIENTS CHOOSE MICROBLADING?
Those undergoing chemotherapy deal with hair loss in different ways. Of all the permanent makeup techniques, microblading and combo brows, most closely replicate the natural look of real eyebrows.
Cancer survivors say it totally changes their morning routine because they don't have to draw on their brows anymore. They don't have to deal with the anxiety that their brows might smear off on someone's shirt when they give them a hug, or in the water when they're at the pool.
They can wake up with eyebrows again. It's a life-changer.
There is no actual hair in microblading. Each “hairstroke" is recreated by hand by a master artist. Because of the placement of the hairstroke on the brow bone, they have a “3D effect” giving the appearance of real eyebrows to the naked eye.
We create fine hairlike strokes into the skin with small needles. Pigments are applied, with topical anesthetics used before and during the procedure for comfort.
It works for full brows, thin brows, or no brows with natural results. This procedure can last up to 2 years.
2. ARE ALL CANCERS PATIENTS ELIGIBLE FOR MICROBLADING AND PERMANENT MAKEUP?
According to Oncology Training International, microblading is not recommend for clients who are immunosuppressed or whose skin has become sensitive.
The biggest issue is the effect that cancer and certain medications/treatments have on the immune system. If a client is immunosuppressed, they are not a good candidate for microblading or permanent makeup.
Also, a client’s may become overly sensitive, which will make the procedure impossible and the results poor.
In all cases, we recommend the client consult their doctor before any permanent makeup procedure.
3. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO GET THE PROCEDURE?
Everyone handles their treatment in different ways. Cancer patients sometimes come before chemotherapy, as a preventative measure. Others come after.
What Can I Expect During The Procedure?
Plan to be in your appointment for at least two hours, although the actual time could be even longer depending on your current brow shape and amount of hair. “The procedure itself can be a little uncomfortable, especially for those who are more sensitive to pain,” Brittni advises. Pigment is applied with a specific tool that has a row of several fine needles to create thin hair marks in the skin. The pigment is bladed just below the epidermis and the shallowest part of the dermis resulting in extremely natural results.
5. HOW DO I SELECT THE RIGHT ARTIST FOR ME AND MY NEEDS?
We always recommend to look at their portfolio. Specifically look for clients who had zero eyebrow hair before. It is more challenging to recreate eyebrows when there is no hair and requires an experienced artist. Do not hesitate to ask lots of questions and find the perfect artist for you!
Microblading is a beautiful treatment for cancer patients or anyone who has no eyebrow hair for any reason, including alopecia.
