Microblading

Microblading (semi-permanent make-up) is a non-invasive, fast and virtually pain free way to enhance your features and natural beauty.

Coloured pigment is expertly inserted in to the dermal layer of the skin to enhance the brows. Perfectly defined eyebrows can balance and harmonise the face and can provide lift around the brow area.

Microblading uses individual hair strokes to create the ideal arch and shape while keeping the brows looking natural. For sparse brows or over plucked this can disguise patches of missing hair flawlessly.

Initial consultation and appointment, plus 4-8 week top up - 2 hours £150

You will need to book a patch test at least 24 hours before a microblading appointment.

Before Your Appointment....

Be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the treatment. This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals 10-14 days following the treatment.

Please wear your usual makeup to the appointment.

A sensitivity patch test for the pigment will be provided, however it is your own responsibility to purchase and patch test yourself for numbing cream if you wish to use it, I highly recommend you do as microblading can be very painful without it. 

Any waxing/threading/tweezing should be performed at least 48 hours before the treatment; electrolysis no less than 5 days before the treatment.

Discontinue Vitami A/Retinol products 1 month prior to treatment.

Do not have Botox or fillers injections at least 4 weeks before microblading treatment. 

Do not take Omega 3 (fish oil) or Vitamin E 1 week before the treatment, as this is a natural blood thinner. 

Do not tan or have intense sun exposure 3 days before the treatment.

Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or Coumadin (warfarin) for 2 days before and 2 days after the treatment. However, do no discontinue any medication without consulting your doctor first.

Do not drink alcohol the night before your treatment.

Do not tint eyebrows for at least 2 weeks prior to the treatment. 

Aftercare....

Please following this aftercare advise for the first 10-14 days following your treatment. This will help you achieve the best healed results possible and minimise the risk of infection. 

It is completely normal for you to experience tenderness, swelling and redness, flaking, dryness and itchiness during the next 10-14 days.

Keep the area completely dry until all scabbing has gone and been replaced with new, intact skin. Do not apply skin creams or ointments as it may affect the final colour of the brows. Dry healing is the best healing!

When cleansing the rest of your face, do not touch the brow area; use gentle face wipes or a cloth. 

Brows will appear darker on the 2nd day of healing, however the true colour will not be seen until 6 weeks from the initial treatment date as the colour is obscured by the healing layer of skin.

AVOID:

  • Unnecessary touching, scratching or picking of the brow area as this may result in the colour healing unevenly and risk scarring and infection. If you must touch the brow area please wash and dry hands thoroughly first. 
  • Applying makeup on or around the brow area until the scabs have gone. 
  • Swimming, sunbeds and sunbathing until the area is fully healed (2 weeks), as direct sunlight/chlorine can interact with pigment causing skin irritation and inflammation. 
  • Sauna, steam rooms, excessive sweating, if possible, shower rather than bathe while brows are healing to avoid unnecessary water exposure.
