Do your homework when considering a Permanent Cosmetics Professional
If you are considering a micropigmentation procedure, it is critical to locate an experienced, qualified Permanent Cosmetics professional.
At least 30% of Jamilla’s practice consists of corrective procedures of unsatisfactory work done elsewhere. Often the work is done by inexperienced and poorly trained technicians with little artistic ability. The bad result looks like an unnatural tattoo, which can be spotted a mile away. Your expected outcome should be a natural-looking enhancement of your features. You should look like you, only better! Check out her gallery of photos of Corrective Procedures.
One of the newest fads appearing on Instagram is Micro Blading eyebrows, which is a technique done with a blade incising the skin. Jamilla frequently sees clients who have been scarred by a Micro Blading technique performed by inexperienced or unlicensed practitioners. Jamilla does not recommend this technique! Jamilla can achieve 3-D realistic hair strokes by using Nouveau Contour digital instrument. Please see the FAQs for more information about this.
Search for a technician with at least 10 years experience, as there is a steep learning curve. Ask the technician about her background. A nurse or former medical professional may know science, but that does not make them qualified to perform artistic work on your face. Permanent Cosmetics involves a great deal of artistry and knowledge of complex color theory.
Permanent Cosmetics is not like coloring your hair! If your stylist gives you a color you don’t like she can easily correct it, not so easy with micropigmentation.
Beware of the inexperienced technician who tries to lure new clients with a steep discount, because your face is what she practices on to build her portfolio! Saving a few dollars up front, only to have to spend more in the long run to get the unsatisfactory work corrected, is is not worth the discount. A technician will charge what she is worth. If she under charges her competition then her ability may be reflected in the price.
One of the newest fads appearing on Instagram is the “Microbladding” of eyebrows, which is a tattooing technique created with a small blade (re-purposed Art tool) by slicing into the face. Be aware that this fad hit the USA about two years ago and was taken up by those who take only a TWO DAY training. One can start doing brows without any training as a permanent cosmetics technician. That means your local nail tech, lash technician, hair stylist or aesthetician start Microblading eyebrows after taking the short course without enough training or experience…until they get caught by the state’s Department of Health. That also means that they are NOT INSURED, because without proper licensing they cannot get insurance.
Microblading is tattooing and is licensed under the state NH, ME and MASS boards, which means they need a 1,500-hour apprenticeship with a licensed technician or tattoo artists.
Incising the skin (to scar it decoratively) is one of the oldest known tattoo techniques dating back to prehistoric times. But I’m guessing that even way back then people studied with a master before practicing body scarification as an art form on the local tribal members.
Think about it…if your hair stylist needs 1,400 hours of training before they cut your hair why would you want to risk having your face scarred by someone who has had only 16 hours of education and try to practice under the radar of their state’s health department?
