Microblading is the latest beauty innovation in the pursuit of perfect eyebrows.
A form of semi-permanent makeup, also known as "eyebrow embroidery".
It creates a more natural looking brow than original eyebrow tattooing. This is achieved by cuts of pigment (vegetable dye) scratched into the epidermis of the eyebrow area using a fine 'scalpel- like' blade to create strokes of hair that look very realistic.
Anestheic cream is applied to the area before treatment so that it should not be a painful experience.
You will experience some initial redness in the area concerned, this will fade within a couple of hours. Be prepared for eyebrows to initially appear darker, a crust will form as the brow heals itself as this flakes off the colour will fade by 50%. Every day you will need to apply a barrier cream which you will be given to stop infection and aid the healing process. You will also be expected to have a retouch appointment 4-6 weeks after the initial treatment.
The procedure takes around one hour thirty minutes including initial measuring and marking out of the desired brow shape. The results can last anywhere from 12-18 months, yearly touch up's are recommended to retain the shape and colour.
This treatment is ideal for anyone who wishes to enhance the appearance of their eyebrows or suffer from any condition that results in hair loss such as alopecia. The procedure is expensive and research should be done thoroughly before choosing the microblading semi-permanent artist for you.
