MICROBLADING

MICROBLADING

Microblading is a semi-permanent make up technique for enhancing the appearance of the eyebrows, in which pigment is cut into the skin in fine, short strokes resembling hair, using a hand tool with a blade formed of tiny needles.

This allows us to achieve volume and definition, in which it is difficult to distinguish the hair we have just drawn from the natural hair. Therefore, and thanks to its results, it is one of the most popular beauty treatments today.

The semi-permanent secret to faking fuller eyebrows that look totally natural, microblading is the hassle-free solution to spending hours pencilling in your eyebrows and in many cases not achieving your desired look.

Microblading is a type of eyebrow architecture. It is all about creating the best shape for each face, a totally bespoke approach for each client.
The process is very precise thanks to the tool that is used which is effectively like a pen with the nib being a sloped blade with 10-12 little needles at the end – needles that don’t penetrate the skin but just delicately scratch the surface, much like a paper cut.

The needle very finely implants featherweight strokes with a medical grade pigment on the epidermis layer for the skin, creating fine, realistic and natural hair strokes. Microblading, unlike tattooing, does not penetrate in the deeper layers of the skin (we do not go deeper than the epidermis), but more on the surface.

Microblading lasts anything between 12-18 months, but the longevity of the pigment will depend on your skin type. People with slightly more oily skin will tend to last around the 12 month mark before needing a top up, but those with normal skin can last up to 18 months. Your brows will eventually fade away if you don’t continue with top ups every 18 months or so.

WHAT IS MICROSHADING AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT TO MICROBLADING?

WHAT IS MICROSHADING AND HOW IS IT DIFFERENT TO MICROBLADING?

The names might sound confusingly similar but microblading and microshading are totally different techniques.

Both are forms of semi-permanent make-up for your eyebrows, they have a few subtle but important differences. Compared to microblading’s super precise, individual hair look, microshading has a much softer finish. Think of it like using a brow pencil compared to a brow powder or pomade.

Where microblading tattoos hair-like strokes in your existing brows, microshading tattoos tiny dots along your brows for a less defined finish. When microshading we use the same tool but with different pins to achieve this style.

Not sure which technique is for you? Fear not, we are here to advice and help you make the right choice for your style and skin type, however we can also combine the techniques!

IS MICROBLADING AND MICROSHADING PAINFUL?

IS MICROBLADING AND MICROSHADING PAINFUL?

Although the procedure can take upward of 2 hours or more, most people report only feeling minor pressure or discomfort and less pain than a typical tattoo. Of course, this will depend on your own personal tolerance to pain. Some level of pain or discomfort should be expected but it does depend on the clients pain threshold.

CAN YOU BE ALLERGIC TO MICROBLADING?

CAN YOU BE ALLERGIC TO MICROBLADING?

There are people who are sensitive and allergic to some pigments, but it is rare. We will always perform a patch or scratch test to check you are not allergic prior to the treatment.

IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND

IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND

It is very important to know and understand that brows will be up to 40% darker in shade for the first 7-10 days during the healing process where scabs can form and flake off.
Clients can sometimes leave the studio, and two days later be terrified that their brows are too dark, but please be patient – as this is totally normal! After 7-10 days, you will begin to see the final colouring.
