What Is Microblading?

Microblading is a way of implanting pigment under the epidermis using a specially designed tiny blade which leaves thin realistic hair strokes for the most natural finish. Together we design a brow which is totally bespoke to you – your colour will be mixed from the highest quality pigments just for you.

Microblading originated in Asia and is also known as eyebrow embroidery. A fantastic treatment for anyone looking to improve or enhance the appearance of their eyebrows.

Is Microblading Safe?
Yes, very. The microblading device is one of the most hygienic available, a small, pen-like device that uses completely disposable parts. All needles, tubes, chambers, caps, casings – anything that comes into contact with clients, are brand new and sealed prior to your treatment. Our salon is clean, hygienic and compliant with all Department of Health Regulations for Skin Penetration. Allergic reactions to the pigments are incredibly rare. The pigments brands used are trusted, long-established USA made brands that have been on the market for decades. The pigments contain iron oxide that is already present in the human body, so highly unlikely to cause a reaction. In regards to patch tests, this can be arranged, and is recommended if you are concerned/are a highly allergic individual. However, – as an allergic reaction can sometimes show after 2 weeks, but sometimes 5-10 years later (this can be due to hormones/medications or simply unknown) a patch test can be rather ineffective. Most clients do not request a patch test.
How Does Microblading Work?
The microblading procedure involves depositing pigment into the skin, using a small pen-style machine which rapidly inserts small quantities of the appropriate colour pigment progressively in the required area with the expertise of a competent and skilled professional.

The pigment remains in the skin indefinitely although the colour may fade due to aging of the tattoo, health or environmental factors. Touch ups may be required at this time.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Two appointments are necessary to create fantastic, long-lasting brows, particularly for the hair-stroke method that seems to be the most popular at the moment.

In the first appointment, a shape is established, colour saturation occurs, or the first set of hair-stokes.

The second appointment is to reinforce the pigment (fill any spots where colour did not take as well, or where hair-strokes faded, as they can do) to give a more realistic, 3D appearance.

Please prepare beforehand for your treatment

Preparation for a microblading procedure involves:

  • Avoiding caffeine beverages or alcohol on the day of the procedure.
  • Tinting brows before the appointment.
  • No tanning or sunbathing for 3 days before the appointment.
  • No waxing or plucking eyebrows within 2 days beforehand.
  • No chemical peels and other intense facial treatments for at least 2 to 3 weeks before the procedure.
  • Wash and style hair before the procedure, as the brows must not come into contact with water for at least 7 days.

It will also be beneficial, if possible, to also include the following preparation beforehand::

  • Discontinuing vitamin A (Retinol) and Botox treatments for at least 1 month beforehand.
  • Stopping taking fish oil or any other natural blood thinners, such as vitamin E, at least 1 week before the procedure.
  • Avoiding aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (as these types of medications are blood thinners).
  • Not working out the day of the appointment.

 

How Long Does Each Procedure Take?

Each procedure normally takes 1-2 hours.

Often, for eyebrows, the longest part of the appointment can be the consultation and actually drawing on the brow shape. A fair amount of time is spent getting the eyebrows as symmetrical and as close to perfect as possible, with your approval before any microbladinging begins.

How Long Does Microblading Last?

 

There is no definitive answer to this one – it is dependent on many factors, such as:

• the pigment used – darker pigments i.e. black and very dark brown last a lot longer than lighter shades.

• The density of pigment – i.e. a treatment that has been reinforced with a second adjustment appointment will usually be longer lasting

• Environmental factors such as exposure to UV light. Tanning and not using sun protection will fade microbladings faster

• Your health and overall individual physiology – some people retain pigment extremely well

Generally, the treatment is considered permanent; in many cases (especially eyeliner and very dark brows) you will always have some pigment in the skin. A touch-up treatment is recommended every 12-18 months for most microblading treatments

What Can I Expect After The Procedure?

The area treated may show redness and swelling and that the colour looks dark and intense – this is quite normal.

Additional treatments cannot be undertaken until the area has completely healed. A 4/6 week healing time is required before any more work can be undertaken.

After Care and Recovery?

In order to let your brows heal well, avoid water on the brow area and follow these after care instructions:

  • Gently washing over the eyebrows with a fingertip, using antibacterial soap and water for about 10 seconds, rinsing, and then patting dry.
  • Using a minimal amount of moisturizing ointment.
  • Keeping the brows away from water for 7–10 days, which includes not taking long showers, swimming or sauna.
  • Avoiding putting makeup on the brow area while it is actively healing to keep the area as clean as possible.
  • Not picking at the scabs.
  • Avoiding direct sunlight or tanning for at least 4 weeks after the procedure.
  • Not using facial scrubs or peels for at least 4 weeks after the procedure.
  • Not sleeping on the face for at least 10 days after the procedure

 

Enjoy your new wonderful brows!!
