Both microblading and permanent makeup are commonly used for enhancing the appearance of eyebrows in the same way temporary makeup would be used.
These methods are perfect for saving time, making sure you look your best but are also used if recovering from chemotherapy, alopecia, covering scars.
Microblading, also known as semi-permanent makeup is a manual method of blading individual hairline brush strokes which target the first three layers of skin.
Because the ink pigment isn’t very deep under the skin the results are sharp, clean and can be mistaken for real hair!
The appearance of microblading is not only life like and realistic but versatile lasting 1-3 years.
This does mean that the look will require reapplication after time.
If you prefer a bolder look, you can choose between a medium thickness or thick liner which is applied by a steady line along your lash line.
Lash enhancement can be applied to either or both your upper and lower lashes.
The color is custom blended for the look you want taking skin tone into account.
This allows us to discuss which procedure, shape and style will work best for you.
Next stage, we will look in more detail at your skin tone and hair color.
This will allow us to analyses the best pigments to use in order to achieve the best appearance.
Using calipers to check all measurements and a guide color pencil, we will template your eyebrows.
This will allow you to get a clear vision of what your brows will look like and enable any changes to shape to be made.
Then a topical anesthetic is applied to the brow area in preparation for the procedure.
4. The procedure
Once the anesthetic has settled in, we will begin the procedure.
This will take approximately 60-90 minutes depending on your desired look.
Our after care products are then applied.
5. Touch up
I will invite you back for a follow up appointment.
This normally takes place after 4-6 weeks when the skin is healed from initial procedure.
Over time and with sun exposure the color of your eyebrows will fade.
I recommend follow-up appointments.
How long will my brows last for?
The simple answer is everyone is different.
Everyone’s skin is different; it ex-foliates and rejuvenates at different rates.
As the pigment is attached to the skin, this causes it to fade over time.
Lighter tones last anywhere between 9 months and 3 years, with darker colors lasting a little longer.
Do you have to remove the brow hair that is already there?
Microblading is styled and delivered based on your current brows, working with your natural shape and colors.
Leaving your natural eyebrow hair in tact is essential to your final results looking as natural as possible.
Some hairs might be removed for the purpose of shaping but the majority will remain.
Will my brows fade once they are healed?
When you initially have the procedure the color will be between 15-20% lighter after healing.
What color will you use for my brows?
All colors are mixed specifically to suit your skin tone and hair color to get your perfect brow look.
All decisions are fully discussed and advised throughout consultation before treatment begins
