Microblading is a semi-permanent treatment for the brows where ink is injected using the microblading pen. This tool with super fine needles is used and each stroke is gently etched into the skin to give a natural look. The needles will not penetrate the skin but just softly scratch the surface of the skin.
The microblading process last around 2 hours to complete and includes drawing the shape of the brows with the temporary pen - this is the most important step and it's well worth spending time on - followed by applying a numbing cream to reduce the pain and discomfort.
Different pigments are carefully chosen to create a most natural brow and skin tone is also taken into consideration.
After the completion of microblading there is some recovery time for about 2 weeks, and the brows can last for a few years.
Microblading can dramatically correct lost eyebrows and is amazing for those wanting to enhance their brows or thinning brows from over tweezing, age or illness.
Your therapist will discuss shape and colour and will no doubt give you some advice if you are a little stuck on which will best suit your face shape and skin tone. Perhaps you’d like a more trendy shape or go completely natural?
Your qualified therapist will shape your brows and do a clean up to prep the area for your brand new brows.
He/She will start their magic by measuring and drawing the correct brow line you have agreed on.
A numbing ointment will be applied and you do not want to skip this step!
The needling process begins. Remember these will be very light and gentle strokes to the surface of the skin with the microblading pen. The pigment will seep into the skin and start settling.
After the completion of microblading there is some recovery time for about 2 weeks. You’ll have to follow the after care instructions given to you.
Do not scratch the area. The area will start healing exactly like a tattoo, which might lead to some irritation, so the urge to pick it will be there, but just concentrate on how amazing your brows will be once all healed.
Your hair might appear lighter or faded days after the procedure. But do not fret, your ideal colour and shape will show after about 30 days.
A touch up is normally necessary after 6-8 weeks after your first session. Your therapist will remind you about this.
Microblading lasts between 12-18 months, this is also dependent on your skin type. People with oily skin will need a top up by 12 months, whereas someone with normal skin can wait for the 18 month mark to do a top up.
The process is not painful because of the numbing cream. (Remember the numbing process might take awhile, so put your feet up and relax)
The sound of the needles might make it seem scary, but there will be no pain.
