What is Microblading?
Microblading is a manual semi permanent makeup for brows.
A very fine blade is used to deposit pigment into the first layers of the skin (epidermis), which allows the strokes appear crisp and very fine.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows with realistic looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of how thick or sparse their eyebrows are.
Microblading is great for anyone suffering from alopecia or has over plucked in the past or if you would like fuller looking brows.
The pigments used have been formulated to match your original eyebrow colour, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly to match. The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow.
The Microblading results can last anywhere from 12 to 18 months, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and colour.

If you then would like to book in, Sally takes a deposit to secure that time for you. Sally will send out an online consultation form that has to be filled out before the first treatment.
The First Treatment
Typically the longest part of your appointment is drawing and correcting the shape of your eyebrows until you are fully satisfied with the results.
Your eyebrow shape is determined with various tools to create the perfect brows that suit your face.
The shape is drawn on with a special soft, waterproof pencil.
Sally will show the shape before she proceeds and can be tweaked if needed.
Numbing gel is applied after the First Pass of Microblading is performed. Anesthetic is then applied to brow, so you may feel a mild discomfort in the first 10 minutes of the blading then becomes much more comfortable once the gel is added.
Pigment is applied to initial strokes to ensure that each hair is twice as dark and twice as thick as we want our final eyebrow to be.
The chosen color mix is to compliment your existing,hair, brow and skin tones.
Once microblading is complete, a pigment mask is left on brow to absorb. The eyebrow is then cleaned and a healing ointment is applied
The treatment time is 2.5 hours,
The Perfecting Treatment
Once the brows are healed from the first treatment ( usually4-6 weeks) Sally will see you again for your perfecting treatment. This is where Sally can fill on any areas that didn’t take very well on the first treatment or some correction in shape is needed. Sally also can change the colour at this stage to darken them if needed. Shading is also offered at this stage is needed. Treatment time is 1- 2 hours.
Use boiled water to wipe over brows each morning and evening. Then with clean hands and a cotton bud apply a thin layer of healing ointment (provided for you) to the treatment area 2-3 times per day and at bedtime for the entire week.
Your eyebrows will be dark and shiny from the applied cream
Do not allow eyebrows to dry out. Keeping the area moisturised and soothed is important for color retention.
Stay out of the sun! If you must be out wear a hat or something similar to protect your eyebrows from sun exposure
Keep water off of your brows, when you shower apply a liberal layer of vaseline beforehand and then gently wipe off after your shower and re-apply supplied cream
Do not use any face creams, exfoliates or harsh cleansers near your brows during the healing process
Do not pick any scabs or dry areas that may form during the healing process. This may cause you to lose colour or damage your skin.
Normal activity can be resumed immediately, however intense exercise (sweating) should be avoided 2-3 days following treatment
