AAM Position Statement on MICROBLADING

E-mail Print PDF

Officials from the State Department of Health of various states have inquired about "3D Microblading" and what standards should be applied. This video is made in answer to their questions and concerns about microblading. The Academy believes Microblading is a form of tattooing and all safety precautions and comprehensive training should be completed. The Board of Microblading is completing their exam for CERTIFIED MICROBLADING PROFESSIONAL™ status (CMP™). Successful completion of the written exam taken online and proof of completed and healed cases are pre-requisites to take the exam.

B2B Medium BrownWarmup-1047

WARMUP says it all. WARMUP Kolorsource pigment modifies, warms and corrects most inorganic colors that are considered cool or cold. Examples: Gray, Blue and Green are all cool. In Microblading our colors tend to "pull" gray or ashey. Just add WARMUP to your favorite NuBrown colors, mix well and begin.  CLICK HERE to see Dr. Dixon's video on how to use WARMUP with some of your favorite NuBrown Colors.  Used alone, WARMUP is a nice lipcolor for blondes who want a natural lipcolor. Color fades so the color that fades the slowest leaves a residual color. You know that BROWN IS NOT A COLOR! It is a blend of colors. For those who prefer the safety of MRI Safe Kolorsource brow pigments with an inorganic green base, you may have observed these blends occasionally over time (sometimes 7-8 years) reveal a greenish tone. This is easily balanced by Warmup or Bubblegum. It depends on the client's skin tones, their exposure to sunshine or suntanning booths (South Florida), the client's age and skincare products (anti-aging creams and acids).  As in all cases, do NOT mix pigments from a different manufacturer with Kolorsource pigments. Do not hesitate to call us with concerns or questions.

Do the WARMUP TEST to see how it works: Put 2 drops of your favorite pigment on a piece of paper.  Make a smear. Now, add 2 drops of WARMUP. Mix together and make a smear agin. You can see the how WARMUP or Bubblegum balances your brow colors that have an inorganic base including green. Call 888-452-4946 with questions.

ORGANIC COLOR CORRECTIONS: Use B2B Medium to correct old blue/gray brows from Tattoo Ink (carbon black).  B2B is also useful in brows that have healed green. Use B2B Dark to correct Blue Eyeliner. Use alone or add to your eyeliner colors.Teeter Totter

Correct Color Changes Easily: Green Brows & Red Brows & Purple Brows

E-mail Print PDF

Bubblegum-4400-cliphttps://twitter.com/dixonmd

You'll agree, we've all seen and had brows that have changed color over time.  The original brown brows may change to colors such as pinkey, orangey, blue, purple, greenish or gray. Browns are made from blending several colors together. This is necessary as there is no pure brown pigment. Each color in the blend contributes to the final healed result and the faded color over time. The undertones of our client's skin plus their environment affects these changes. Someone in Florida who worships the sun or loves tanning beds will have accelerated color changes. Skincare products such as Retin A and Glycolic acid affect pigments as well. You don't see as many changes in areas where the sun doesn't shine much such as Alaska.

This is predictable because one characteristic of each pigment used is call light-fastness.  In other words, how fast does a pigment fade?  Some colors fade quickly and others more slowly.  Because some pigments fade more quickly than others a residual color becomes the dominant color visible and will need neutralizing or balancing.

Because pigments fade at different rates over time, the color that fades the fastest leaves the the slowest fading color or colors in the blend visible as the residual color.  This can be seen as a pinkey-orangey, purple, gray or green residual color. Because this happens in almost every brow over time, CORRECTIVE colors have evolved to control the undesired healed color.

GREEN BROW: In a green-based brown, the green is the last color to fade and may need to be balanced. The benefits of a green-based brow is that the resulting brow color is MRI safe. This is very important to some professionals and their clients. Here is a photo of a client with a slight greenish hue after 7 years. She didn't notice it but I did and I used hairstrokes with Auburn and Dream Nubrown. In some people there may be more green so you'll use Bubblegum or B2B Medium to neutralize the green.  Use it alone or with a desired color.

Green-brows-7-yrs-fixed

PINKEY, ORANGEY BROW: In an iron oxide black-based brown, the black fades first and leaves a pinkey, orangey brow.   KOLORSOURCE pigments have brow colors with browns blended with either a black base or a green base. You can see on the Kolorsource chart whether a pigment has any ferromagnetic properties or not.  Black iron oxide is known as magnetite for its magnetic properties and can affect an MRI. A slight tingling or burning sensation may be felt by the patient when they have an MRI. No serious problems have occurred, however, according to the expert doctor at www.mrisafety.com.

GRAY BROW: This is a common color resulting from a blend with carbon black or tattoo ink alone. Gray can result from a blend of inorganic colors that have "ashed" out as well. You'll see a lot of eyebrow pigments with "anti-this" or "anti-that" modifiers. But in the long run, left alone, those colors will heal gray. The good news is KOLORSOURCE B2B Medium warms up gray brows beautifully.  CLICK HERE.

BLUE/PURPLE BROWS: We have created B2B Medium to correct old "tattoo blue" or even purple brows.  B2B stands for "Blue-to-Brown".  All corrective colors used for balancing need 1-2 applications.  Question? Call 888-452-4946.

KOLORSOURCE Pigment Chart: You will see a PLUS + sign or a MINUS - sign next to each Kolorsource brow or eyeliner color on the laminated color guide. You can test your pigment bottles, no matter what manufacturer brand you use, with a magnet. You can pick up a magnet at your local hardware store to test your bottles of pigment. SEE FOR YOURSELF: Look for a Kolorsource brow color in the "Find Product" box and you'll be taken to the pigment which has the description plus 4 smears of the color to show the undertones (Warm, Neutral or Cool) and the effect of adding Bubblegum or Blooper or Neutral Flesh to the color.  Click here to see Dream NuBrown as an example.

Green or red brows are easily balanced.  Bubblegum will neutralize green brows and most green based NuBrown colors neutralize unwanted pinkey, orangey brows. Some manufacturers have modifiers that need to be added to their colors before you start to prevent them from ashing out or going green over time. Many Kolorsource professionals have learned to add Bubblegum to their NuBrown colors for this purpose. Feel free to call and ask questions. 888-452-4946.
