What is Microblading?

Microblading is a form of tattoo artistry also known as permanent make up, where pigment is implanted under your skin using a sterile disposable hand tool, Tiny crisp hair strokes are created by hand, following the natural direction of your brows. This will create fullness and more definition yet very natural.

Does Microblading hurt?

Although a form of tattooing, the pain factor experienced is much less. As it is less invasive and more superficial. The discomfort will be different from person to person due to individuals’ level of sensitivity. I recommend applying topical numbing before the treatment to help you stay comfortable through the treatment. Most clients have no issues with the sensation.

What does the treatment involve?

Your Journey will start with an initial consultation, we will use this time to discuss your needs, what you want to achieve and together we will be decided what shape and the perfect colour is going to suit you best. I will always take into account everything from how you wear your make up, your lifestyle, your skin tone, facial features and structure. Your consultation will take from 30-40min.This will be followed by your initial treatment .6weeks after you will be ready for your touch up appointment. This will complete your microblading journey.

Will it look natural?

Yes, the healed result will look very natural. Because this technique it created hair-stroke by hair-stroke so it looks very natural, the overall look is bespoke to you. Please take a look through my portfolio under gallery to get an idea of how microblading looks.

 

Can you go over my existing permanent cosmetics?

This will depend on how faded it is, I would recommend letting old permanent cosmetics to fade as much as possible to get the best result from your microblading treatment. If you do have existing permanent cosmetics on your brows please send over a picture via email before your consultation. For me to assess you amount of pigment present and weather you are suitable for microblading.

 

How long will they last?

This all depends on the individual due to skin type, lifestyle and environmental factors. The pigment will fade quicker for those who are sunbed users and/or have excessive sun exposure. I would recommend always protecting your brows with a SPF to keep the colour vibrant. I recommend colour boost treatments every 9-12 months to keep them looking fresh. If you do not have your colour boost the colour will fade gradually.

Do my natural brows need to be shaved off?

NOT at all. If you have natural brow hairs, I will always try to incorporate your own natural hair as much as possible.

Will the shape be drawn of first before you start the microblading treatment?

Yes of course, we will spent time together discussing your design. I will create the drawing with precise measurements and my trained eye to create your ideal shape, this will be tweaked until you are 100% happy with the shape before we start tattooing.

What will I look like straight after the treatment?

Your brows will look slightly red and you may experience minimal tenderness straight after the treatment, this will vary from person to person. This will subside within 1-2 hours. They will start to look darker a few hours after the treatment. It can be around 50% darker, becoming lighter after 4-7 days.

What do I need to do before my appointment?

The skin needs to be as healthy as possible before your treatment. Any sunny holiday is recommended a minimum of 4 weeks before your appointment due to the skin being dehydrated from UV exposure and skin being compromised (tanned or sunburnt). Please do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment, and I advise against any caffeine on the day of treatment. The full pre-treatment advice will be given to you at your consultation.

Can I go on a sunny holiday straight after my Microblading treatment?

I recommend you wait for at least 4 weeks after your retouch appointment as strong sun can impact the way your brows will heal and will affect the final result.

How quickly will it heal?

Everyone is different, but as a general rule the surface skin generally heals between 3-7 days after the treatment, and 10 – 14 days below the surface. The full healing process will take from 4-6 weeks. Please read the healing process under brow care blogs to gain more information on the healing process.

How long will it take?

The full Initial treatment will take from 2.5-3 hours. Your top up treatment can take from 1 hour – 1.5 hours.

Can I wear make-up after the treatment?

You can wear make-up straight after the treatment but please don’t wear make up on your brows until they have healed. You will need to wait until the treatment area has healed, this could take around one week.

Can I have microblading if I have medical issues?

 I will take a full assessment of your medical history prior to your consultation. There may be some medical condition which may stop you from having treatment.  While there are some occasions when people are not suitable for treatment due to medical matters, it is rare.

How to book an appointment?

You can make a booking by our online booking system or phone. Your consultation will be complementary.  A non-refundable booking fee will be required to secure your initial appointment, the remaining balance is required to be paid in full at your first appointment.  Your initial treatment cannot be made with the deposit being paid. (see full terms and conditions)

 

Is the 6-week touch up appointment necessary?

After 6 weeks your touch, up appointment will take place and is vital.  Your touch up appointment is to perfect any areas, touch up any pigment that may have been lost during the healing process. Healed Results will vary from person to person, so more work may be required on the touch up appointment. If you want to change the shape slightly or adjust the colour slightly, this will be done at the touch up appointment. If you do not attend your scheduled touch up appointment you will be charged for any further treatment needed.

What is the After care?

I will provide you with extensive after care instructions. Alone with a after care pack to help your brows heal well. Remember that the colour is up to 50% DARKER immediately after the treatment and the next day. They will start to become lighter after 4 –7 days. Do not pick your brows while they are healing. It is important that you do not exercise for 7 day following your appointment. It is also vital you do not get your brows wet for 7 days following your treatment. The true healed colour will be visible around the approximately 4 – 6 weeks after the initial treatment.  During the healing process, the colour may seem to have disappeared as it is hidden beneath the healing layers of skin.  You need to let your skin heal, please do not have any other brow treatments in between your initial treatment and touch up.

Is microblading suitable for everyone?

Microblading is suitable for most skin types although if your skin is excessively oily skin, I would not recommend this treatment, alterative permanent make-up procedure may be better suited. If you have any questions regarding your skin type feel free to drop me a message.
