Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery is a procedure categorised under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi permanent. Microblading typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each ‘hair’ is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. Microblading can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrow and is excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural or desired brow colour and skin tone will also be taken into consideration.
Microblading is done in two sittings (or actually three, if you count the patch test that you have to come in for first). On the initial appointment We will have a chat with you about the sort of thing shape/colour You would like and what your usual face care routine is. We will then need to make a tiny surface scratch with a very fine small needle and rub a small amount of pigment over it. That part is all over and all being well you can book in for your first session.
In your first sitting Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area , some clients may feel slight discomfort, but it’s relatively painless and perfectly normal . After making small hairlike incisions into your brows, extra dye is rubbed over the area and left to sit, before being wiped away, revealing your brand new brows.
