Permanent Makeup / Microblading

What is Microblading?

Microblading is semi-permanent tattooing, which uses nine tiny blades (microblades) to deposit pigment under the skin of your eyebrows. It provides definition, enhances fullness and can be used to alter the shape of your brows.

Microblading (or eyebrow embroidery, as it’s also known) uses a specifically designed tool, which bleeds pigment into the small scratches on the epidermis to create fine lines mimicking strokes of hair. The overall look is natural and realistic.

Microblading aftercare:

For maximum results and to avoid any added discomfort, aftercare is very important. Most clinics provide detailed information on how to look after your newly microbladed eyebrows.

  • Do not get your brows wet for the first 7-10 days.
  • Use the healing balm provided 2-3 times a day for the first 7-10 days with a cotton bud – NOT YOUR FINGERS!
  • Do not apply any make up on the treatment area for the first 7-10 days.
  • No swimming, saunas/jacuzzi, sun beds for the first 7-10 days.
  • Do not have any other cosmetic treatments such as facials, skin peels, laser, etc. within the first 4-6 weeks.
  • Don’t pick, peel or scratch the treated area.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for the first 14 days.

Does it hurt?

We’re not going to lie, it’s not totally pain-free. But it’s also not unbearable. It’s pretty much how you’d imagine teeny-tiny blades to feel on your brows – a bit scratchy. It’s over pretty quickly and once you see your fancy new brows you’ll forget about all the pain. There can also be a little discomfort during the healing process.

Followups

About 4-6 weeks after your first treatment, you’ll need a follow up appointment to top up the pigment and to make any small adjustments to the shape or fullness.

How long does it last?

Again, depending on how thick/full you want your eyebrows to look and how well you stick to the suggested aftercare guidelines, microblading can last between one to three years. Top-ups may be required within 12 months.
