What is Microblading?
Microblading is a technique used in permanent cosmetics to create natural looking eyebrows. Using a small specifically designed ‘blade’ to imitate natural eyebrow hairs, microblading creates fine crisp hair strokes that look natural but gives you the shape you’ve always desired.
How long does it last?
Everyone’s skin is unique to them, therefore acts differently so it can vary. At your initial consultation your permanent cosmetics technician will discuss longevity with you. You will have a top up 6 weeks after your initial appointment, this is then followed by a colour boost treatment that can be taken every 1, 2 or 3 years.
Would Microblading be right for me?
Microblading is suitable for many different needs. Perhaps you’ve over plucked your eyebrows in the past and have been left with thin brows in a distorted shape, perhaps you have no hair there at all and spend 20 minutes every morning pencilling them in, perhaps you have plenty of eyebrows hairs but they are patchy and have no shape. All of these plus many more would make you a suitable client for microblading.
Will my eyebrows be perfect immediately after the treatment?
The first thing to remember is that eyebrows are sisters not twins! Saying that, your permanent cosmetics technician spends time before the treatment commences discussing with you your desired shape and drawing on a template to ensure they are as symetrical as possible before making it permanent.
You also have to take into account healing time. Implanting any kind of foreign body into the skin will naturally cause your body to reject it. For the first few weeks after your treatment the pigment can look a different colour and also darker. The skin has been cut therefore you can get tiny scabs form across the eyebrows.
You will be required to have a top up appointment 6 weeks after the initial treatment, at this appointment your permanent cosmetics technician will assess if there needs to be any additional hair strokes placed, if the colour needs to be darker and if any strokes are uneven in colour. Therefore be prepared that in total it may be 12 weeks before you see the final outcome.
Does the treatment hurt?
Topical anaesthetic is applied to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
