Microblading Aftercare For Oily Skin

Since microblading goes a little bit more skin deep, it’s important to consider your skin type too. Why? Because your skin type affects how your skin will heal after the procedure. It also affects the rate at which the pigment will fade.

There are four common skin types: normal, oily, dry, or combination. And usually, people with oily skin are hesitant about microblading because it might not work on them. Don’t worry, though, because it does! So you can still book that microblading appointment. And to ensure that the pigment will last a long time, there are certain steps for microblading aftercare for oily skin you can follow.

Skin types and how they heal

First, let’s look at how different skin types heal after a microblading procedure. This will help understand how your skin type affects the healing process. And why people with oily skin might have to take extra care of their new eyebrows. 

Normal skin

Normal skin types (those not prone to breakouts) heal evenly, and the pigment will last for the average length of time. So it will take one or one and a half years before it needs a touch-up.

Dry skin

Dry skin types have almost invisible pores. You can tell if you have dry skin if it feels tight throughout the day and if you see some flaking. However, dry skin heals cleanly. It also retains the color of the microblading pigment the longest, up to 1.5+ years. This is because dry skin produces lesser oils that dilute the pigment.

Combination skin

Combination skin heals similarly to normal types or slightly oily skin. This is because it’s pretty common for the eyebrow area to be oily.

Oily skin

If you have oily skin, your skin tends to be more hydrated naturally and ages nicely. However, excess oil could easily clog your pores. Oily skin types also tend to have larger pores. With slight oiliness, though, the skin will heal more like normal skin. But with very oily skin, the pigment will be more spread out.

Here are some recommended steps you can take to take care of your skin and help with the healing process for oily skin types.

  1. After microblading, wiping the eyebrows with a cotton pad dampened with water is done every 15 minutes. You will need to do that for three days to wipe away the excess oil.
  2. Instead of a healing gel, you might be given a light healing cream. A gel is usually given to prevent the skin from drying out. But since you are not at risk of drying out, you can use light aftercare creams instead.
  3. Use blotting paper on your eyebrows for two weeks. You will need to blot away the excess oils so the pigment will come out clean and crisp. Your microblading might end up blurry if there’s too much oil.
