It’s unavoidable: not all beauty trends are for everyone, which means all beauty trends will inevitably come with horror stories. We’ve all seen the bad side of the best in beauty trends, from wonky lip fillers to botched botox jobs. Like we said: there are no exemptions. This time, we’re looking at microblading gone wrong and—thankfully—how to avoid it.

Is microblading dangerous?

All enhancement procedures carry some risks with them. That’s why they all come with prior consultation, to make sure nothing in the process will clash with your allergies or preferences.

Microblading is safe—if done in the hands of experts. Usually, when people’s beauty procedures go bad, it’s either because:

  1. They went to unreliable clinics or doctors; or
  2. They made too much changes to their face.

Beauty enhancement procedures should do just that: enhance your face. Not change it completely. They should also be done in a clean environment with properly sanitized tools; no fly-by-night clinics or suspicious cheap discounts.

That being said, here are the worst microblading gone wrong horror stories on the internet, plus the moral lessons that go with them:

1) The girl who lost her whole eyebrow

Amanda Coats of Melbourne, Australia wanted to get her eyebrows microbladed. And, in July 2017, she did.

Unfortunately, immediately after the procedure, she noticed that she seemed to have acquired an infection in the microbladed area.

She wrote in a now-deleted Facebook post that the technician who worked on her eyebrows did not follow proper sanitation standards:

“The lady who did it, Ulzii Cleveland, was very rushed, going in and out of the room attending to other clients during my procedure and also doing another eyebrow tattoo at the same time. She did not put new gloves on each time, which does not keep things sterile,” Amanda wrote on her Facebook account.

Amanda said she messaged and called her microblading technician right away, but that she was ignored. She was again ignored after she asked to return to the clinic for a checkup. By then, patches of her skin had begun to fall away, and pus was leaking out of the microbladed area.

If only it stopped there! Both Amanda’s eyebrows completely fell off, even after she took doctor-prescribed steroids and antibiotics.

Amanda said she spent $360 for the microblading procedure and $1600 treating the infection. She has since filed charges against the clinic, which is also suing her for $150,000 in compensation after they lost a number of clients.


Moral of the story: Research your clinic before going in for the procedure! Make sure they follow proper sanitation and safety procedures. Look into their certifications where applicable, and read through their customer reviews.

If you’re still nervous about your clinic, look at how long they’ve been in the business, which might be an indicator of how good they are at what they do.

 

2) The girl with the ‘Angry Birds’ eyebrows

Katharine McPhee microblading gone wrong

Katharine wrote about her ‘microblading gone wrong’ disaster in a blog post. Photo from News.com.au.

Katharine McPhee admits that, while she believes in natural beauty, she also didn’t like her natural, sparse eyebrows. Something simply had to be done.

“I have the odd combination of Celtic skin, dark hair and wispy brows. I usually filled them in with a kit. But the tricky part was consistency,” she wrote.

It became a Jekyll/Hyde brow situation. I didn’t want people placing bets on whether I would turn up with eyebrows each day. So, it had to be every day.”

Everyone deserves to feel confident about their brows—which is why it sucks that Katharine’s only got worse. While going in for a microblading session, she immediately felt that something was off: there was too much pain, even though her technician already gave her numbing cream.

She came out of the procedure with ‘Angry Birds’-like eyebrows, she said. So, Katharine went straight to the internet, found a recipe to ‘remedy’ her situation, shopped for ingredients at the grocery, applied them at home, and…

Felt her left eyebrow skin get burnt. Yikes.

Her first mistake?

“My downfall began when I bought an online discount voucher, instead of footing a full cost at a vetted salon.”


Moral of the story: Skip the sketchy discounts! Never skimp on procedures that carry even the slightest bit of risk. Find a beauty clinic that is honest enough about how much they need from you, so they can perform the highest quality services.

Remember that microblading carries costs: from the equipment they use to the pigments that go into your skin. If a clinic is asking for a very low price, pause and think: Are they sacrificing on quality to make up for the cost?

Microblading gone wrong: How does it go right instead?

There’s no need to be terrified of microblading! Like we said, microblading is safe. You just need to find the right clinic and the right microblading experts.

Luckily, Organic Permanent Makeup has both.

Our pigments are 100% natural: they’re food dye-based, have zero side effects and are applicable for all skin types!

Jennifer T.
Hollywood Hills, LA

“I highly recommend Lorine at OPM for all your beauty needs! I have been going to Lorine for years, and I wouldn’t trust anyone else doing my fillers. Her technique is amazing, and she really knows how to customize treatments to your face. I’ve done everything from lips, under eye and fine lines, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I have sunken eye sockets and have been dealing with under eye circles all my life. She made them disappear 🙂

Also if you are looking for permanent make-up, she’s done my eye brows and lip tint and I’ve gotten so many compliments!”

 

Nico A.
Culver City, CA

“[Joy V.] is super professional, and she takes you through the process step-by-step and informs [you] what she’s doing, so you’re at ease through the whole procedure! She has done my brows and lips, and [I] absolutely love them. [They] just give my face so much more life and cuts my beauty routine time in half! In the picture I’ve posted, the only makeup I have on is the permanent makeup on my brows and lips. I’m so happy, I’m definitely going back to see Joy again soon, and you should too!”

 

 

Lorena T.
Los Angeles, CA

“My mother went in with skinny, non- existent eyebrows and left as a new woman with beautifully contoured and shaped microbladed eyebrows by the talented owner Lorine. Mind you, this procedure took less than an hour, and the results are flawless. Highly recommend! Mom’s going to visit her in a couple days for her permanent upper eye liner, can’t wait for that reveal!”

 

 

 

Solla P.
Los Angeles, CA

“I’m all about natural beauty, so I came in with initial trepidations about my virgin face being somehow altered with the permanence of tattoo on my eyebrows…

The owner, Lorine reassured me of the results and, sure enough, after the complete healing process was done…what [was] revealed was a beautiful set of eyebrows that has enhanced my features.

I [wholeheartedly] recommend this unique innovations in artistry and organic safety of product.”

 

Other reviewers have called their time at OPM a “fantastic experience” and praised OPM for its “knowledgeable, professional and excellent costumer service“.

We’ve had clients who regained the eyebrows they lost after their menopause; customers who can assure you that our pigments never change color; and clients who overcame their fear of allergic reactions from permanent beauty procedures!

No doubt about it:

  1. OPM is the leading clinic when it comes to permanent makeup; and
  2. OPM microblading is the best in the market.

Our organic pigments are 100% natural and safe. They have zero side effects and are compatible with all kinds of skin types.

We offer all kinds of services: 3D organic OPM microblading, lip contouring, eyelash enhancement, scar removals and more. Book an appointment today, and be part of our growing OPM family—oh, and don’t forget to leave a review after.

If the name alone doesn’t convince you, we’ve rounded up the reasons why organic microblading is better than regular microblading.

Microblading is the process of drawing fine lines to mimic the appearance of hair. Microblading artists make tiny incisions into the skin to deposit pigments with a pen tool.

Organic microblading

Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) offers microblading as a solution to the problem of putting on makeup everyday.

No more need to splurge on eyebrow kits, lip tints and mascara! A one-time microblading procedure can substitute your daily makeup routine.

But we don’t just offer your run-of-the-mill permanent makeup, no. We’ve pioneered and led the organic permanent makeup industry. That means our products and procedures are 100% safe!

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Here’s the rundown of why organic microblading blows regular microblading out of the water.

1) Organic microblading looks better.

Microblading is a beauty procedure, isn’t it? So, why settle for less-than-beautiful when there’s a better alternative?

Regular microblading makes eyebrows look solid and unnatural—imagine drawing your eyebrow with a Sharpie. That’s how it looks like.

Organic microblading, on the other hand, looks soft and natural. That’s because we hand-draw each line of hair, blending them seamlessly with your natural eyebrow hair.

Our pigments are 100% natural, too, meaning our vegetable- and mineral-based pigments are easily absorbed and blended into the skin.

Pigments used in organic microblading also don’t change color over time—unlike regular microblading pigments. Ever seen a blue or green eyebrow before? That’s a victim of inorganic, metal-based inks that have aged.

2) Organic microblading has a shorter recovery period.

Once you’ve achieved the eyebrows or lips of your dreams, you’ll only need to let your skin recover for 3 to 5 days. That is, if you had them microbladed at OPM.

Regular microblading, meanwhile, can take up to 10 days of recovery time. That’s because the inorganic ink takes longer to settle on your skin. Yikes!

Organic microbleeding at the hands of OPM experts also mean minimal bleeding and no bruising. That’s because our staff is trained at our very own microblading academy. We handle your microblading procedure only with the utmost care.

Don’t believe us? Check out what our customers have to say about their microblading experience!

3) Organic microblading hurts less.

No pain, no gain? Not at OPM!

We believe beauty doesn’t have to come at the price of your discomfort. That’s why our state-of-the-art OPM power pen machine does a magnificent 180 to 250 hits per second. Compare that to regular microblading’s 50 to 90 hits per second!

But what do these hits mean?

Basically: The quicker the hits, the more quickly your skin absorbs pigments. The slower the hits, the more likely the procedure will cause trauma to the surrounding skin tissue. Slower hits also spell longer healing times and possible scarring.

The verdict: Organic microblading wins

Organic microblading is safer, more effective and longer-lasting. It also looks infinitely better than regular microblading!

Motherhood is difficult—but rewarding. Whether it’s looking after one or five children, everyday is both a challenge and an adventure. But some days are more challenging than others. How do moms find the time to feel good about themselves?

We have just the solution: eyebrow microblading.

Eyebrows are the beauty trend of the decade. And it’s no surprise; a perfectly-shaped eyebrow can make you look younger and fresher than ever before. But with more and more eyebrow products and hundreds of YouTube tutorials to comb through, it can get hard to keep up.

Enter eyebrow microblading.

Eyebrow microblading is the process of drawing fine lines using pigments to mimic the hairs in your eyebrows. The result is beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows that require no prep time.

The process is achieved with a manual pen-type tool. Microblading artists shape your eyebrows according to how you want them to look. Yearly touch-ups allow you to change your look according to what’s trending!

Eyebrow microblading is perfect for hands-on moms, moms-on-the-go and all the moms in between. Here’s why:

1) Eyebrow microblading is safe and organic.

Moms’ number one priority is always their kids’ safety—which means they shouldn’t neglect their own health. After all, the kids need and want you to be around!

Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM)’s organic microblading lives up to its name.

Our pigments:

  • have no side effects;
  • are compatible with all skin types;
  • are longer-lasting than non-organic pigments; and
  • have a wide range of hues for all skin colors.

Important note: Moms-to-be are not encouraged to get their eyebrows microbladed. Please wait until after giving birth to schedule for your appointment. Read more: Can I get microblading during pregnancy?

2) Your eyebrows will be microbladed by experts in the industry.

OPM’s founder is a pioneer in the permanent makeup industry. In fact, OPM was founded as a solution to dangerous permanent makeup practices.

We even have our own academy, where we train beauty professionals to be microblading experts. We’re also accredited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and we strictly follow the sanitation standards prescribed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

We don’t take your safety lightly—we make sure you leave our clinic happy, healthy and more confident than ever before.

3) You won’t have to take a day off from mommy duties.

As eyebrow microblading is a non-surgical procedure, you can go back to being a supermom immediately after getting your eyebrows done. There is no downtime for eyebrow microblading.

There are, of course, aftercare guidelines that you need to follow. These guidelines, however, won’t change your daily routine in the least.

Basically, you just need to make sure the microbladed area avoids contact with:

  • direct sunlight and extreme weather conditions;
  • skin care products (lotions, moisturizers, etc.);
  • water and sweat; and
  • direct skin contact.

4) You’ll look beautiful everyday—effortlessly.

No more precious hours wasted watching makeup tutorials or finding yet another eyebrow palette. All you need to do is schedule an appointment, show up for your eyebrow microblading procedure, and wake up every day ready for more challenges and adventures!

It doesn’t just save you time, either. Think of it as a well-deserved treat after all your hard work.

After all, a happy mom raises happy kids. And what kids don’t want mom to be happy and confident?

microblading tools and equipment

You’re excited for your first microblading procedure—that’s great! Now, it’s time to make sure you’re well-prepared.

While this beauty craze is for anyone who wants fuller, beautiful brows, only those who can follow instructions properly will get the most out of their microblading service. Here’s how to get your skin ready for an OPM microblading procedure.

Things You Should Not Do before the Microblading Procedure

Don’t pluck, tweeze, or wax your eyebrows

We understand that this is something you normally do early in the morning. However, for at least one week before your microblading procedure, do not pluck or tweeze any of your eyebrow hair.

Refrain from waxing the area to be microbladed, as well. In fact, even taking out smaller hair follicles through electrolysis is prohibited.

Why, you ask? Because aside from giving you slight discomfort, plucking, tweezing and waxing can actually make your skin ‘less relaxed’.

Less relaxed skin will make you too sensitive to be exposed to a process like the OPM microblading procedure.

Avoid getting sunburned

It might be a good idea to postpone that beach trip. You can’t allow your face to get sunburned. Chances are, the tanned skin surrounding your eyebrows will exfoliate or shed off.

As that happens, the color goes off, as well. That means you won’t have your original skin color and that matching the right pigment for you will be trickier.

Don’t dye your brows

Speaking of colors, don’t tint your eyebrows three days before the procedure, either. The color of your eyebrows from the artificial tint won’t last long; they’re only semi-permanent.

Once your tint fades, your microbladed eyebrows might not perfectly match the actual pigment of your skin. So, skip the dye for now—our OPM pigment is designed for long-lasting effect, anyway!

Skip the facial

Two weeks prior to treatment, skip your weekly facial routine. Peeling products and services are exfoliators that may inflame your skin or make it too sensitive for the OPM microblading procedure.

Things You Should Not Take before the Microblading Procedure

Don’t take Vitamin A or Retinol

Discontinue using Vitamin A or Retinol products one month before the treatment. These very accessible drugs promote skin cell changeover, resulting in newer and more delicate skin. You don’t want to have this kind of skin during the procedure.

Skip the Fish Oil and Vitamin E

Speaking of vitamins, Fish Oil and Vitamin E should not be ingested one week prior to the procedure. These two are natural blood thinners. While there will be no bleeding during your microblading procedure, very tiny blots of blood will appear around the microbladed area.

But don’t worry—these blots readily become blood clots. However, if your blood is thin, the process of blood clotting becomes slightly slower, and we don’t want that in our operation.

Relieve yourself from pain relievers

Similarly, pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen make the blood thinner. Avoid these at all costs, especially when nearing the microblading procedure.

Hold the margaritas

Lastly, in order to make sure that there won’t be any bleeding at all and that color deposit is never poor, do not drink alcohol 24-48 hours before the microblading procedure.

With all these small sacrifices under your belt, you’ll be on your way to looking great. Organic Permanent Makeup OPM promises you that—all you need is a little patience. Margaritas on the beach can always come after!

Lorine Mikhaeil is the founder of the best microblading academy in the U.S.

Are you confused about picking the right microblading academy for you? Well, look no further. Organic Permanent Makeup OPM Academy is the choice for budding microblading experts.

Why, you ask?

Short answer: We’re the best.

Long answer: Organic Permanent Makeup OPM Academy is the longest-running program in the U.S. We offer organic microblading products, highly rated services, and effective professional training. And not only do we teach you, we also offer a job afterwards.

Yes, you read that right. Finish our training, join our team, and earn $10,000 per month, guaranteed.

No shortcuts: Microblading training takes time

Fact is, we don’t short-sell our students: the truth is that there’s no alternate route but sheer determination.

Microblading training takes two to three months. Study a few weeks short of that, and you risk not learning the delicate art and science of microblading.

One microblading academy or two might try to convince you that training lasts only two days. Be careful: these schools only want your money.

They’re not really concerned about whether or not you get a proper career. All they do is show you how their staff does it; they don’t let you handle the needle and face the clients.

In the end, you’ll learn nothing.

Learn from the best in the industry

Lorine Mikheail is the inventor of the Organic Permanent Makeup OPM system. She commits strongly to her passion for permanent makeup—the organic way. Being a pioneer in the industry, she attests that 2 days, 10 days, or even 15 days are really not enough to train students.

She also tells her students to practice every day. Microblading is an art, and Lorine makes sure students learn the importance of perfecting that art. As a microblading artist herself, she puts emphasis on the principles of stability, leverage, and—most of all—symmetry.

Hard work is also important. A client has only one face, so it’s best not to mess up anything, even the tiniest bit of detail, Lorine says.

Microblading academy programs should be systematic

Microblading is not only an art; it’s also a science. That means, you can expect a well-organized and well-planned learning program.

The OPM Microblading Academy follows a three-step process:

  1. Hands-on Demonstration – You get to see with your own eyes the step-by-step procedures involving microblading and other permanent makeup processes.
  2. Mandatory Practice – We require compulsory 150 hours of practice to finish this stage. Your aim is to develop muscle memory, making microblading second nature to you. During this stage, we give you weekly homework and plenty of educational videos to watch in your own home, at your own time.
  3. On Live Models – No other microblading academy will train you this extensively. We want to make sure you get everything right, so we use the ultimate test: real human beings, real clients. Don’t be intimidated; at this point, our students are too good to mess up. Besides, our experts are there to supervise you—and congratulate you on being a microblading artist afterwards.

Not just a microblading academy, but a family

We make sure you achieve your ambition in becoming a professional OPM artist. Once you’re done with training, we help you become a member of our team.

Have your photo up on our website, get marketed to our clients, and watch your portfolio grow for the world to see.

At OPM Academy, your success is our achievement. Join now!

What’s the difference between microblading vs eyebrow tattooing? It’s easy to mistake the two as the same procedure. However, they’re actually completely different.

Both microblading and eyebrow tattooing are beauty enhancement techniques. Although—spoiler alert—many consider microblading the better option.

That’s why Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) only offers microblading. Here’s a rundown of why:

Procedure

  • Microblading: Fine lines are hand-drawn by skilled artists. Lines do not bleed over time.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: Lines are not as fine as those done via microblading. They may also bleed over time. Lines eventually get thicker over the years, as well.

Retention

  • Microblading: Effects last two to five years. Experts designed the procedure for once a year retouching. This means you always have the option of changing up your style with something trendier than last year’s look.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: Eyebrow tattoo remains permanent, even if you are running the risk of discoloration.

Color

  • Microblading: OPM pigments are all organic, made only from natural ingredients. This gives the assurance that there will be no changes in the color and no side effects. The pigment may lighten its saturation but will never change its hue.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: The kinds of ink used are the traditional ones, which turn blue or brown over time. Pigment discoloration lead to a mismatch with skin tone, leaving your eyebrows looking unnatural.

Pain

  • Microblading: The needle doesn’t enters past the papillary dermis, so the procedure won’t hurt a lot. The anesthetic used prior to the treatment numbs the clients from pain, as well, so the procedure is virtually painless.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: The needle is inserted into the deepest layer of the skin, which cause pain and bleeding.

Results

  • Microblading: Eyebrows look natural after treatment, since they are carefully hand-drawn and produced using organic pigment. Individual hair strokes blend with the client’s real hair.
  • Eyebrow Tattooing: A machine-tattooed eyebrow appears to be a flat solid line drawn above your eyes, making it not look like an eyebrow at all.

Conclusion

Between microblading vs eyebrow tattooing, OPM microblading will always be better. Microblading technology is newer and was made to solve the problems of eyebrow tattooing.

With OPM, your microblading service will be done by experts with the use of organic pigments. The procedure is low-risk and safe.

microblading aftercare

Now that you have the beautiful brows you’ve always deserved, it’s time to turn your attention to microblading aftercare. What you do after a successful microblading operation is vital to speeding up healing.

By now, you know that OPM only cares about making you feel beautiful and confident. We pay careful attention to detail, especially when putting OPM pigments in the right spot. It has to be not too shallow that the pigment won’t retain, and not too deep that your skin will develop scars.

This time, taking care of your beautiful skin is up to you. Here’s what you need to know about microblading aftercare.

Avoid any additional applications

We are not fond of applying any ointments, creams, skin oils, lotions or moisturizers on the microbladed area as part of post-care procedure.

These substances could get into the wells created during the procedure and might push back OPM pigment to the surface in the long run.

Try not to wet the microbladed area

When bathing, ensure that the area is well-protected from water. Always avoid it from getting wet or damp, even from excessive sweating, because it could lead to an infection.

No touching

The trick is to just leave it be.

Don’t touch it with your fingers. We understand that you’re itching to admire your new look, but rest assured that it looks great and is safe. We use the least invasive procedure in the market!

Just wait for the area to be completely healed before making direct skin contact.

Protect yourself from the weather

Skip the sunbathing for now. It’s best to avoid direct exposure from the sun, especially in hot environments.

Likewise, refrain from going to windy and dusty places, as these could cause unnecessary complications on your microbladed skin.

There’s no need to worry

OPM’s number one goal is client satisfaction. We always love to see you happy and satisfied.

This is why our microblading artists will call seven days after the microblading procedure to check you if you have any concerns or questions and that everything is okay.

We also consistently remind our clients to come back after six to eight weeks after their first appointment for a retouch. It’s a labor of love, seeing you maintain that everlasting beauty.

If you follow, OPM’s guide to microblading aftercare, then there’s no reason to your healing time will extend beyond 3 to 5 days.

On our part, we can assure you that it is our mission that there will be little to no scabbing. And, of course, that you look your absolute best!

history of microblading

Microblading is an alternative to conventional makeup. It’s also a rising trend in the US. The practice, however, traces its roots back to ancient Japanese culture. Here’s a quick rundown of the history of microblading.

It began as an alternative trade for woodcarvers

Tattoos were prohibited and considered as taboo in Japan for several centuries. Despite this, Horimono—the traditional Japanese art of tattooing—was popular in the late Edo period, especially among common folk.

But who were the tattoo artists?

At the time, Ukiyo-e or Japanese woodblocking was flourishing. The woodcarvers, however, did not earn enough for a living. Many shifted to tattooing instead, where the demand constantly rose and where they received guaranteed weekly wages.

Horimono artists used natural inks made from charcoal and cadmium to produce rich, elegant colors and shades. Arists dipped bamboo rod with fixed needles into ink and etched designs on human skin.

This technique was known as tebori, which literally means “to carve by hand”. Tebori is commonly cited as a direct inspiration for the tools and the process used in microblading.

A modern update

As economy began to rise and technology advanced, it was inevitable that the beauty industry would boom. Permanent makeup slowly gained popularity in Asia and, later, Europe and the US.

Permanent makeup accommodates a market that demanded for an alternative to conventional, time-consuming makeup.

Due to its global popularity, microblading is known by many names, including but not limited to: eyebrow embroidery, micro-stroking, and 3D eyebrows. Microblading ink, tools, techniques, and practices vary from artist to artist and continue to change over time.

However, failed microblading attempts due to improper training and poor technique also rose. Metal-based inks were popular. However, these caused pigments to fade into unnatural colors and posed potential health risks.

Lorine Mikhaiel, a BS Nursing graduate with a passion for permanent makeup, sought to fix that and tried to find solutions that would make permanent makeup and microblading safer, less painful, and longer-lasting.

From her discoveries and innovations, Organic Permanent Makeup and organic microblading was born.

A new chapter in the history of microblading

Today, OPM is the #1 US brand for permanent makeup and is the best microblading procedure provider the market has to offer.

By looking back and using history as inspiration, we have created a new industry for people who wish to look natural and boost their confidence.

We also offer exclusive classes through our OPM Academy, where we teach aspiring organic permanent makeup artists and technicians the proper way of helping clients look their best. Through intensive training from our team of world-class professionals, any beauty enthusiast can learn the art and skill of microblading.

With the history of microblading to guide us, the future of beauty begins now.

microblading tools and equipment

The practice of microblading as a profession and alternative solution to conventional makeup has become a rising trend in the US. But what is microblading exactly?

Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique that mimics hair-like strokes on the eyebrow. People avail microblading for contouring, enhancement or scar concealment. The procedure goes by different names: eyebrow embroidery, micro-stroking or 3D eyebrows.

Organic microblading, on the other hand, is an exclusive OPM-pioneered service. Coming together are non-toxic, organic pigments; high-grade permanent makeup machines and world-class training. All this so you get the natural, effortless look you desire and deserve.

Organic microblading looks natural

Most inks used in microblading and permanent makeup are metal-based and therefore contain iron oxides. These inks may cause allergic reactions and could be detrimental to your health.

Here in OPM, we take the natural effect of microblading another step further. We use organic ingredients from plants to produce pigments fit for all skin typesThis makes our products safer and friendlier to different skin undertones.

Our exclusive 3D OPM machine used for organic microblading is digital, magnetic, and comes with different types of needles to produce soft, precise, hair-like strokes. No bleeding, no damage.

And not only does organic microblading save time on applying make-up, it also allows everyone to have crisp, natural results. Everyone from people with oily skin and allergies to people incapable of applying makeup can look and feel good.

This is what is microblading about.

Organic microblading lasts longer

Aside from health risks, metal-based inks have the tendency to fade into unnatural colors with time.

At OPM, we avoid this by only using organic pigments. Organic pigments last longer. In general, organic permanent makeup lasts from two to five years.

For organic microblading, we recommend minimal touch-ups every year. Furthermore, the OPM machine has specialized needles and decreased vibration. This allows maximum pigment retention during microblading without leading to skin trauma.

Organic microblading ensures fast recovery

Unlike regular microblading, organic microblading has no downtime at all! You can even go to work immediately after the procedure.

How is this possible, you ask? Organic microblading causes less damage and scarring to the skin. The OPM machine that has an accurate stabilizing needle frequency when applying the pigment to the epidermis. This way, organic microblading only results in primary healing intention.

Note that, for aging skin, it is possible for there to be minimal redness or swelling. This is natural. Your skin will heal naturally in 3-5 days.

Read more on what to expect during your microblading healing time.

Organic microblading is safe

Of course, like all procedures, microblading comes with its set of risks. But that doesn’t mean it’s not safe.

Due to the nature of the procedure, it’s possible for the area to be infected if the microblading is done without proper sterilization and sanitation.

But no worries—at OPM, we prevent this by enforcing strict, intensive, hands-on training for our artists and technicians. We focus especially on proper sterilization and sanitation of tools and equipment.

We’ve also equipped the OPM machine with a cross-contamination protection system through the hand piece and needle cartridge system to further ensure your safety.

Organic microblading requires aftercare

While organic microblading has no downtime, the procedure still requires proper aftercare.

Avoid putting on makeup on and around your eyebrows. Swimming, tanning, and activities that induce sweat are not advised, either.

Following the aftercare guidelines we provide guarantees proper healing in 3 to 5 days.

For more information on what is microblading aftercare, click here. Proper aftercare will also be discussed in personal consultation prior to the procedure.
