What is semi-permanent make up?

Semi-permanent make-up, also known as micropigmentation, is a form of temporary cosmetic tattooing which allows you to add long-lasting shape and colour to your eyebrows. It is perfect for anyone who has a hectic life who doesn’t have time to pencil on their eyebrows every day or for those who would rather have 10 more minutes in bed in the morning!

Microblading ensures that your brows stay looking flawless all day, without worrying that your pencilled in eyebrows may have worn off or smudged throughout your busy day!

How do I prepare for my treatment?

Avoid drinking caffeine, taking ibuprofen or aspirin (unless required for medical purposes) at least 24 hours before treatment. This will aid with the healing process.

Any tweezing, waxing or threading should be done at least 48 hours prior to the procedure and 1 week post procedure.

What can I expect after my microblading treatment?

Topical anaesthetics are applied around 20-30 minutes before the treatment begins in order to minimise any discomfort during the microblading procedure.

There will be slight swelling and redness to the skin immediately after treatment but this will subside quickly. Please note that after the first session the treated area will appear 50% darker than the desired outcome colour and this will be the case for approximately 7 days.

After care instructions will be explained and provided after treatment but a cream will be provided and this will need to be applied to the eyebrow area for 7 days to aid the healing process.

Stages of microblading recovering
What can I expect over time?

Complete healing takes 4-6 weeks, while the pigment matures and reaches its final colour. You will have a top up appointment at this time to finish your treatment (please remember that this is a two treatment process)

During the first session, a lighter shade is always used, it is important to remember that a darker colour can always be added but it cannot be removed and therefore it is better to choose a darker shade during the second session (if required) rather than choosing the darker shade to begin with.

Results can last anywhere from 12-18 months, it really depends on different factors and your lifestyle. A colour boost is recommended once a year to retain the shape and pigment of your eyebrows.

Are there any precautions?

Clients who have medical or cardiac conditions may need a doctor’s clearance before going ahead – a letter from their GP will be sufficient clearance. Clients who have anti-wrinkle treatments, must come before or nearing the end of a treatment. Clients on blood thinners like aspirin/warfarin are NOT suitable.

We do not recommend having the procedure done whilst pregnant as your face shape can alter throughout pregnancy and affect the finish result. If you are breast feeding, you will need to wait until feeding ends before any microblading treatments can be carried out.
