Microblading

Microblading

Microblading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo technique applied without using a machine. The technique is applied using a hand-held tool with a disposable blade attached. By dipping the blade into your chosen pigment, hair strokes are created with pigment being implanted into the skin.

Unlike body tattoos which use ink, Microblading is a cosmetic tattoo using pigments. These pigments are designed to fade over time which allows the artist to make changes to the colour or shape over the years as required.

Microblading is perfect for those who wish to add fullness to their existing brows. Ideal for clients who may have overplucked over the years or their brows have become thinner over time. This can be the ideal solution.

FAQs

How long does it last?

The treatment is classed as semi-permanent and will fade over time. To keep your brows looking their best a touch up is recommended every 12–18 months. The speed in which they fade will depend on a few factors:

Pigment Colour – Lighter colours will fade quicker.

Skin Type – Oily skin will fade faster.

Anti-ageing Products – Products which contain ingredients such as Tretinoin (Retin-A) and Alpha Hydroxy will cause the brows to fade quickly as they increase cell turnover rate.

Does it hurt?

We try to ensure we do all we can to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. The treatment can feel scratchy so if you are sensitive then we suggest applying Emla numbing cream 60 mins before your appointment. This can be purchased from us during your consultation or from any chemist off the shelf.

Can I have Microblading while pregnant?

No

How long is the appointment?

Allow for 2 hours maximum. A large part of the appointment is measuring and mapping out the brows which the client is involved with every step of the way. The follow up appointment will take approx. 1 hour.

Is the follow up appointment included in the price?

Yes, a follow up appointment 6-12 weeks later is included in the price to ensure the brows heal perfectly and the colour is even throughout the shape.
