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.
Ombre Brows is a form of cosmetic artistry created with a digital tattoo machine specially produced for Permanent makeup. This technique implants small pixels of pigment using a shading motion. Ombre creates a fuller brow similar to makeup or a brow tint.
Although a form of tattooing, the pain factor experienced is much less,As it is less invasive and more superficial. The discomfort will be differentfrom person to person due to individuals level of sensitivity. I recommendapplying topical numbing before the treatment to help you stay comfortablethrough the treatment. Most clients have no issues with the sensation.
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 for Microblading and 12-18 months for Ombre brows to keep them looking fresh. If you do not have your colour boost the colour will fade gradually.
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 4-7days.
The full Initial treatment will take 3 hours. Your top up treatment can take from 1 hour – 1.5 hours.
Everyone is different, but as a general rule the surface skin generallyheals 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 blog to gain more information on the healing process.
I will provide you with extensive after care instructions. Alone with a aftercare pack to help your brows heal well. Remember that the colour is up to 50% DARKERimmediately after the treatment and the next day. They will start to becomelighter 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. Itis 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.
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.

Yes, the healed result will look very natural. Because this technique it created hair stroke by hair stroke so it looks very natural. Ombre brows will heal soft just more defined then Microblading. The overall look is fully bespoke to you.
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. If you do have existing permeant 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.
Yes of course, we will be spent time together discussing your design. Iwill 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.
I will take a full assessment of your medical history prior to the treatment at your consultation. There may be some medical condition which may stop you from having treatment. I will send you out the medical history form before your consultation for you to fill out. While there are some occasions when people are not suitable for treatment due to medical matters, it is rare.
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-two weeks
After 6 -8 weeks your touch up appointment will take place and isvital. Your touch up appointment is to perfect any areas, touch up anypigment 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.
