Permanent makeup is a growing trend not only in the Dallas-Fort Worth area but across the world. In 2015 alone, people in the U.S. spent over $13 billion on these procedures. Permanent makeup is applied through micropigmentation, which is essentially a form of tattooing. One popular micropigmentation application that aestheticians may wish to add to their repertoire of services is microblading shading, which is a form of permanent makeup for the eyebrows. OM Design Academy offers professional microblading shading training for potential students interested in perfecting this popular service.
What Is Microblading Shading?
Microblading shading is the art of making the eyebrows appear fuller and darker, and to give them a specific shape. This service may be useful for clients who have thinner or lighter eyebrows or those who wish to maintain a specific look for their brows. There are a few features that set microblading apart from other types of eyebrow treatment:
- Microblading gives the appearance of individual hairs for a natural look
- Shading alone gives a filled-in appearance to the brows
- Eyebrows still require touch-ups to maintain their appearance after treatment
As with any tattoo, there are some risks to the patient during the microblading procedure. It is possible for some bleeding to occur, and in some cases, patients may develop an infection. It can take a few weeks for the brows to fully heal from the procedure. For these reasons, comprehensive training and certification are essential for the professional administering such services.
What Are the Advantages of Microblading Shading Training?
Any form of micropigmentation carries with it some inherent risk for the patient. As an aesthetician, it is essential that you receive proper training in providing microblading services as safely as possible. Clients are sure to be looking for providers who can show proof of certification in shading and microblading training. There are two main approaches for shading and microblading, and while it is possible to receive training in one method, it is a good idea to consider full training in both:
- Manual: This method involves micropigmentation by hand. With manual training, you learn to create brow designs using state-of-the-art tools and materials.
- Machine: This method includes training on special permanent makeup machinery. Machine micropigmentation is often used for brow shading.
