What is Microblading?
Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow procedure that is carried out by a qualified technician using a specialist hand-tool which holds disposable microblades.


How does it work?
The required pigment is deposited into the superficial dermis of the skin with the disposable microblade which allows the technician to create bespoke, crisp hair strokes which look like natural eyebrow hair.

How does it differ from semi permanent tattooing?
Microblading differs from conventional semi-permanent tattooing by the very fact that it is a manual procedure. When using a hand held micro blade, the colour is deposited closer to the surface than when a machine is used leaving very fine and crisp hair strokes with no spilling under the skin.

Who can have Microblading?
With all semi-permanent makeup procedures it is the practitioner’s responsibility to make sure that there are no contraindications to treatment. If there is a medical condition the clinic doctor will be consulted prior to treatment. REMEMBER: We have your best interests in mind.

How long does the pigmentation last?
Microblading tends to last between 6-36 months and after this period of time may need a colour boost or refresh.
Does it hurt?
Like all semi-permanent procedures microblading will require a topical anaesthetic which can be topped up throughout the procedure making it relatively painless.

AFTER CARE


After care is crucial, it is very important to follow these instructions for the full 10-day healing period to ensure proper healing and color retention.  Results will vary for all individuals and we cannot guarantee your results.

Let your brow tattoo DRY HEAL for 24-48 Hours after the procedure.
Use Saline wipes or a cotton pad with lukewarm water to gently clean your brow tattoo 2-3 times a day after the procedure to keep the eyebrow tattoo clean.
After the 24-48-hour healing period lightly moisturize
Your brow tattoo 2-3 times a day as needed for 2 Weeks Lubriderm or cataphile).

What to Expect

DO NOT expect your brow tattoos to heal perfectly after the first session.  This is a 2 step sometimes multiple step process.

BE PATIENT during your 2-week healing process, your brows will change and appear different from day to day, THIS IS NORMAL

Immediately after your procedure brows will appear darker and more defined and this will last up to 2 weeks.
Your brow tattoo can appear more solid; hair strokes may seem to disappear and it may look wet and painted on.  THIS IS NORMAL.

Around days 4-5 you will experience scabbing and your brows may look dry and flakey.  DO NOT PICK your scabs, let them fall of naturally.  If scabbing comes off prematurely, missing hair stokes will result cause patchy brows. 

Your brow tattoo will take up to 6-8 weeks to fully heal. 

Then the scabbing comes off the hair strokes may seem faint, this is because a fresh layer of skin has healed over the brow tattoo.  Give your brows a few weeks and the hair strokes will become clearer.

You may experience itchiness in the brows after 10days and up to 2months because of the healing of the dermal layer.

Not everyone’s brows can heal clean and crisp.

Hair strokes for oilier skin types tend to heal more solid and powdery while drier skin types tend to heal more crisp and defined.
