What does basic PMU training include?

Basic PMU training can last between four days and a week. While this course will lay down a solid foundation, advanced courses will help you improve your specialty and increase your demand and revenue. The common features of basic PMU training include

  • Theory classes on health and safety: PMU techniques could transmit diseases if the equipment is not properly sterilized. Thus these classes are mandatory
  • Knowing how to achieve the perfect eyebrow arch, what color suits which skin tone and how to delicately handle eyelashes.
  • Equipment handling: PMU uses various machines, thus it is crucial to know how to operate them and how to maintain them.
  • Microblading technique: This is one of the first PMU techniques developed. It is done using a thin blade that helps eyebrows look more fuller and give them a better shape
  • Micropigmentation technique: This is one of the recent developments in the field of PMU. In this technique, an ultra-thin needle is used to inject pigments into the dermal layer of the skin. While this might seem similar to tattooing, PMU uses different pigments and does not penetrate the skin as deep as tattooing. Unlike microblading which uses a blade to draw lines, micro-pigmentation places a series of dots to provide the effect.
  • Powder-Ombre brows: This is another recent technique that helps produce more natural-looking eyebrows.
  • Knowing how to handle different skin types and conditions.
  • Knowing which health conditions prevent the usage of PMU.
  • Knowing how to combine various techniques: Each technique in PMU has its own purpose, but a few customers might need a combination of techniques to produce the desired results. Thus it is crucial to know how to combine them.

The beauty industry is always evolving with new techniques and trends coming up every now and then. It is crucial to stay on top of these trends to ensure you can stay strong in this career. PMU is the latest trend. Its ability to save time and not be affected by physical activities is making it very popular among the masses. People are willing to spend a lot of money to get PMU. It is crucial that you learn the technique to make the most out of this trend. More and more places are opening up to train candidates in PMU. Thus you will be able to find a suitable training institute in your locality and get yourself certified in the techniques in PMU. Even if there are no such institutes in your locality, many top training companies run a basic online course and send you pieces of equipment over mail.
