Eligible Based on Individual Cases  

Individuals with a dark pre-existing eyebrow tattoo or permanent makeup

The tattoo or permanent makeup must be light enough for us to draw hair strokes. We ask anyone with a previous eyebrow tattoo to send us an email to brows@microbladingla.com with a picture of their eyebrows with no makeup on, so we can evaluate.

Individuals who are allergic to lidocaine or epinephrine

Our most used anesthetic is lidocaine and epinephrine so if you are allergic to it, we will not be able to use it during the procedure; however, you will still have an option to proceed but without a numbing agent to reduce the pain.

Individuals with oily skin

Those with very oily skin are ineligible for microblading. Powder brows are recommended for this skin type. Those with less oily or combination skin, may consider a combination of microblading and powder effect, known as combo brows. We have a blog all about microblading solutions for oily skin, if this applies to you. Our Master Artist will ultimately decide if they can perform microblading on your skin.
