MICROBLADING

This two-part process uses subtle hair-like strokes to create fuller, more defined brows whether you have natural hairs or none at all. Each pair of brows is a work of art and individual to you, from the shape and placement of the brows to your natural skin undertones and hair colour.

£325 - Initial and top up appointment.

Payment can be split over the two sessions. (£25 Booking fee payable on securing first session, £200 for initial appointment and the balancing £100 and the 'Touch Up' appointment around 6 weeks later.)

MACHINE POWDER/OMBRE BROW

 

The Ombre technique creates really soft and subtle brows, giving the illusion of a lush full brow created with the effect of two tones. As the better-known hair dying technique suggests, a lighter shade is used on the inside of the brow and gradually darkens towards the arch and outer tail for a groomed but less-done look.

£325 - Initial treatment and top up appointment.

Payment can be split over the two sessions. (£25 Booking fee payable on securing first session, £200 for initial appointment and the balancing £100 and the 'Touch Up' appointment around 6 weeks later.)

COMBO BROW

Combo brows combine the best of both techniques. We can place hair strokes at the front and throughout the brow and add definition and depth with powder to create the tails. This style can be tailored to be as natural or as bold as you like.

£325 - Initial and top up appointment.

Payment can be split over the two sessions. (£25 Booking fee payable on securing first session, £200 for initial appointment and the balancing £100 and the 'Touch Up' appointment around 6 weeks later.)

BROW REFRESH/COLOUR BOOST

This top up appointment allows your brows to be refreshed by enhancing the shape and colour. Usually carried out around 12 to 18 months after your first visit. Suitable for new or existing brow clients, wishing to top up their old microblading.

£150 - One top up appointment.

NB - Cover up work may require two sessions dependant on existing PMU brows. A consultation is always recommended.

Frequently asked questions

What is Microblading?


Microblading, also known as eyebrow embroidery, microstroking, or microfeathering, is a form of semi-permanent makeup. A handheld microblade is used to create super-fine strokes into the upper layers of skin along the brow line, mimicking your natural eyebrow hairs. As the microblade moves through the skin it deposits cosmetic tattoo pigment into each of the fine strokes to give brows more fullness and definition.

As each hair is hand drawn on, brow artists can match the look of your own hair colour and texture so the effect is very natural, making it indistinguishable from real eyebrow hair. This makes it a very popular, low-to-no-maintenance choice for those with patchy, pale, or thin eyebrows.




How will they appear after my first session?


Once your initial treatment is finished, the colour of your new brows will appear quite a lot darker than the final look. This is to be expected and a normal part of the implantation/healing process. After 30 days the skin should have settled and the pigment will have faded considerably, in some cases up to 50%. This is why you have a follow-up treatment where you can refine the look to your desired effect, either making the colour of your brows lighter or darker.




Should I get my brows Microbladed?


With very few exceptions, anybody can get their eyebrows microbladed, and there are many reasons why you’d want to. Whether your problem is lack of time, skills, misshapen brows, fine hair (or even none at all), microblading could be for you if:

-You don’t have a steady hand to draw on your brows

-You want perfectly applied makeup

-You have a history of overplucking

-You have impaired vision

-You’re undergoing chemotherapy

-You suffer from alopecia

-You have vitiligo

-You’re a regular gym/exercise bunny

-You’ve tried all the pencils, gels, creams, powders and pomades – enough’s enough, you want a permanent fix




What happens during the procedure?


Microblading is a two-part process, whereby the initial 1-2 hour procedure is followed by a ‘top-up’ treatment ideally 4-6 weeks later. You’ll need a full consultation and standard patch test of the tattoo pigment before the first stage procedure to ensure you aren’t allergic to the product and are not contraindicated to having the treatment. At this time, you can also fill out the consultation form where you’ll need to disclose any existing medical conditions.

During the first microblading treatment, your brows will be mapped out with an eyebrow pencil before the actual blading gets underway. This will establish the desired shape and size of your new brows before you choose the right colour pigment for you. Following this preparation, your whole brow area will be numbed, and then each brow will be worked on, stroke by stroke, to create beautiful, new brows.




How should I prepare for my appointment?


-You should avoid taking any aspirin, alcohol, Coumadin/Warfarin or ibuprofen for at least 48 hours before the treatment

-Attend the patch test consultation – the treatment can only be carried out with a negative result

-If you’ve booked any waxing or eyebrow tinting appointments, these should be carried out at least 48 hours prior to the microblading procedure

-You shouldn’t undergo electrolysis treatment in the 5 days before the treatment

-You shouldn’t discontinue any medication you take before consulting your doctor first




Are there any medical conditions which may stop me from having the procedure?


Although a very safe procedure which should only be carried out by qualified professionals, there are some clients for whom microblading is not recommended. For some medical conditions, a simple referral from your GP may be required before we can carry out the procedure.

The following list is not comprehensive but gives a good indication of what you’d need to disclose when you book your appointment:

-Pregnancy

-Epilepsy

-Cancer

-Healing problems

-Pacemaker

-Anaemia

-Diabetes

-HIV

-Hepatitis

-History of keloid scarring

If you can’t see your condition listed above please get in touch and we’ll be happy to advise.




How long will they last?


Following the second stage of treatment, microbladed brows can last anywhere from 1-2 years. After this time you may need a touch-up appointment.

Microbladed brows typically take 30 days to fully heal in which time you may experience mild scabbing, flaking and/or peeling, all of which is completely normal – but try not to touch or scratch them!




How long do they take to heal?


As a moderately invasive procedure, you should listen to the advice of your brow artist and apply the aftercare ointment as prescribed, 3 times a day. Usually by day 7 followign your initial appointment, the skin should be healing over nicely, with the true and full result apparent by the 4 week mark post procedure.





AFTERCARE

Now you’ve got your new arches, you need to look after them. As the skin has been traumatised during the treatment your eyebrows will be very sensitive. To limit the pigment fade for as long as possible, please avoid excessive exposure to UV rays and the sun, which includes use of sunbeds. If you still wish to do so, please use a total sunblock on the brows or a moisturiser with a high SPF.


For the first 2-5 days after your appointment, the treatment area can experience the following symptoms:

  • Swelling

  • Tenderness

  • Redness

  • Scabbing

  • Flaking

  • Dryness

  • Itching


For at least the first 7 days following your treatment, or until the treatment areas appear to have healed, you should include the following steps in your daily routine:

 

-For the first 24 hours just gently press clean tissue over your new brows to absorb any excess lymph fluid which may naturally appear on the surface of the skin. Just apply during this period to keep them hydrated the aftercare balm.

-The first day after having the procedure, wash them twice a day with a cleanser such as Cetaphil and gently pat the areas dry with tissue paper or a fluffy towel (do not rub your brows!) You can then apply the brow aftercare balm to keep them hydrated and protected. You will need to do this for the first 7 days (or until the skin has healed).

-Apply the treatment ointment given to you 3 times a day using a dry, clean cotton bud. The ointment will protect the treatment area from free radicals and infections. And be sure to wash your hands before and after application for extra precaution

And the don’ts:

 

-Do not apply makeup on or around the treatment areas for the first 7 days post-procedure

-Do not scratch, pick, itch or rub the treatment area as this can cause uneven healing and increase the chance of infection, as well as scarring and pigment removal from the brows which would lead to uneven colouring

-Do not expose the treatment area to extreme heat or cold until the area has completely healed. This means you shouldn’t use saunas, go sunbathing or use tanning beds for 30 days after your treatment.

 

And please remember! The colour of the treatment area will appear up to 50% darker following the procedure. This will fade after 4-7 days but the true colour will still not be apparent for a full 4 weeks after the initial treatment.

 

Under no circumstances should you undergo any further permanent or semi-permanent cosmetic work during the 4 week period after your first microblading session. Once you’ve made the 4 week milestone post-procedure, the healing process will be complete and you’ll be looking at the full effect of your beautiful new brows.
