When we established Redeem Clinic in 2011, Laura was only one of a handful of technicians within the whole of the Yorkshire regions carrying out semi permanent makeup treatments. Over the past several years the market has become flooded as low entry point treatments such as microblading treatments and hundreds of training schools have opened up across the country. This has had some positive effects on the industry, such as more client awareness and improved pigment options, however regrettably it has also resulted in many negative issues also.
As a clinic that performs tattoo removal as well as microblading treatments the amount of clients we see wanting poor technician treatment removals has shy rocketed. One could say the reason for this is simply due to microblading treatments becoming main stream and the more treatment the more issues? True, yet we feel there are more poignant reasons.
Firstly as the market becomes flooded with technicians, there is less business to go around, meaning technicians as starting to look to other ways of gaining income. Worryingly we have seen a huge increase in recently trained technicians turning to training other technicians themselves in order to increase income. So inexperienced technicians training new technicians, regrettably in many cases, is highly likely to result in a very low standards and even poorer results.
Micropigmentation used to be seen as a specialist market, yet as more and more ‘beauty technicians’ move into the arena the levels of expertise within becomes watered down. A beauty tech may perform 3 lash treatments, 4 waxing treatments and one microblading treatment a day. A micropigmentation tech is likely to concentrate wholly on several microblading treatments each day, honing and improving their skill accordingly.
Finally once again as the market becomes flooded my technicians look to lower their prices in order to gain business. On the face of it this looks like a win win for the client, however in reality it means the technician also look to lower their costs, purchasing cheap ink, cheap needles, sometime rushing hygiene protocols and spending less time achieving the results necessary to ensure the exacting standards the clients expect.
So in short, if you’re looking for the best results from your microblading/SPMU tech we’d suggest never going for the lowest price, go to a specialist micopigmentation artist (not a beauty tech) and ask how long the tech has been exclusively carrying out treatments. Oh and always as for a strong portfolio of before and after photo. It’s simple as that XX
