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.

What happens in the consultation?
I will discuss treatment steps, answer any questions you may have, do a pigment patch test and take a look at the condition of your existing eyebrows and skin. You will also be given a questionnaire which will need to be filled in and signed prior to any treatment.
What happens in the 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 a facial compass as well as an app to create perfect, beautiful brows.
The shape is drawn on with a special soft, waterproof pencil.
Numbing cream is applied prior to microblading The First Pass of Microblading is performed. Anesthetic is then applied to brow.
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, but it usually takes around 2 hours.

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.
