Microblading and Cancer patients

Microblading and Cancer Patients

Having and surviving cancer is one of the hardest thing anyone would ever have to endure in  one’s lifetime. The trauma of having cancer not knowing if you can survive the sickness, what havoc chemotherapy will do to your body, dealing with hair loss that come after the chemo. Hair loss is devastating to most women, because we women depend a lot on our looks and it defines us in so many ways. As feminist as I am, I and many woman embrace being vain, it’s just part of us and one of our many complex layers that makes us women.

So imagine loosing something as important as our hair is a very hard pill to swallow for most cancer patients. Most cancer patients would expect loosing the hair on their head during and after chemotherapy but what usually comes as a shocker is the loss of eyebrows and eyelashes. As the saying goes that eyebrows frames the face. So walking around with no eyebrows can change our entire appearance as  can really affect one’s self esteem and confidence. For hair loss in the head, there are multiple options available to hide it from rocking fabulous wigs, to wearing scarves and head wraps to doing henna designs/tattoos on the head.

But for eyebrows the options are quite limited. Using a eyebrow pencil alone won’t give the best natural look and if you want to have great natural looking eyebrows then microblading is the way to go.

What is Microblading you may ask?

Microblading is a new semi-permanent tattoo technique where a small disposal blade known as a microblading pen is use to draw on individual strokes one by one that look just like real hairs. It’s a pretty meticulous process and it  takes about 2 hours to complete. The good news is that the results last anywhere from 8 months to 2 years. Just the perfect timing for cancer patients to grow back their natural brows. We say having microbladed brows is like waking up with makeup everyday.

Perfect Eyebrows Before After

Ideally we would like to have patience start have their microblading session before their chemo starts but it would need to be “okayed” by their Oncologist as we do not know if or how the chemo radiation would affect the microblading pigment.We know dealing with cancer is hard enough so we just want to do our bit to help out by offering a free microblading session to one cancer patient every month. Just contact us at info@microbladingcanadainc.com and we got you covered.
