Microblading is another form of permanent make up, is also known as eyebrow embroidery and lasts the same as machine brows. The technique was first introduced in Asia. Using hairstrokes techniques and Soft Tap powdering, you can create beautiful brows. A tool contains a numerous amount of pins that are 3 times thinner than the needles used for machine. It is performed by manually depositing pigment into the basal layer of the epidermis. Microblading creates thin and crisp hair strokes compared to machine.
How long does Permanent make up last?-
Excessive exposure to sun, sun beds, unique body chemistry, medical conditions, facial care maintenance and pigments used" will affect how long the treatment will last, you will need a colour boost between 9-18 months, depending on the factors above. It is important to understand that anything and everything affects your skin, down to contraception, greasy foods, a lot of exercise, how many times you wash and so on.
If you don't have a colour boost the treatment will fade over 3-5 years, again, depending on the factors above. It is really important to look after your brows, stay away from them as much as possible, no make up, no pencil, no sun beds, no facial products on the brows and to keep out of the sun. If you have oily skin, there is a risk that your brows will not take, and if they do not take they may not last as long. Please be aware some ladies may need a 3rd top up at an extra expense depending on the factors above.
Does it hurt?-
The degree of discomfort depends on client’s pain threshold, location of procedure performed, use of anaesthetics and the skill of the technician. The least painful treatment is brows compared to lips and eyes. Most of my clients say that a brow thread hurts more than the treatment itself.
Sidney will talk you through the whole process reassuring you at all times. With plenty of stretching and using topical anaesthetics, she will try and make the procedure as relaxing as possible.
What is the best colour?-
What is seen in the pigment container is not the colour that will be seen in the skin when the procedure is healed. It is really important when choosing a colour with that you understand the colour will fade by 40%.
The true colour will only show when the skin is healed. Every pigment looks different on different skin tones. This is why its important to place the pigment on your skin before finally choosing one that looks best. You may love the colour that someone else had, however, this may not be the right colour for you.
We will also conduct a Fitzpatrick questionnaire to determine what skin tone you are, this will help us decide what colour is best for you, if you decide to go darker than what I have suggested then you will need to sign a disclaimer, where there is a risk brows may heal grey/blue if we use a pigment that is too cool for your skin tone.
All brows may eventually heal or fade a different colour, we cannot determine or predict what colour your brows are going to end up. We do not take responsibility for this, your body chemistry, and sun exposure and the way that you look after them will determine the overall result.
What is the healing process?-
After the treatment the brows, eyes or lips will slightly start to scab, leaving the area very itchy and tight. This will last between 3-5 days. It is very important you do not get your area wet for at least 72 hours and you do not pick the scabs or itch. You will be given healing balm to help with irritation, it is important you only apply this when necessarily and not all the time. After the scabs fall off, the pigment will completely fade and it will look like you have nothing left.
About 2-4 weeks later the colour will gradually come back, however, not all of the pigment will come back; this is why we do a 4-6 week top up within the price. The treatment will look different to what you had done before; this is why it’s important to come to your top up 4-6 weeks after your treatment to ensure they are finished completely. The whole healing process will take between 8-10 weeks before you see the final result. If you do not come back for your second top up before the 8 weeks then you will be charged for a full set again, as I will have to start from scratch again
Agreement for your 4-6 weeks Top Up
It is very important that you come back between 4-6 weeks for your top up, if you leave it over the 6-8 weeks then the colour in the skin will fade, and we will need to start all over again. If we need to start again then there is a £100 charge to do this, with you signing and dating below, shows you are aware of this charge and you agree to the terms of this condition. You pay your initial treatment and this covers you for one free session 4-6 weeks after your initial appointment.
Sidney cannot determine your skin condition, so if you have very dry skin, oily skin, frequent tanner etc this is not down to poor choice on her behalf this is your skin condition. If you do require further top up because of this there will be a cost of £50 for materials. This has to be done within the first 3 months of the initial treatment. After this time the boost costs are as follows, 3-6 months £80, 6-12 months £120, 12-18 months £155. You will also need to sign another disclaimer to say that you are happy with the final colour and shape, if there’s any changes that need to be made once this has been signed then you will have to pay to come back in. If you do decide to change the shape on the 4-6 week top up, please be aware you may need another 3rd top up to go over the places that are new, to ensure they stay.
Step 1 – Do not get your brows wet until the scabs have fallen off, if you can help it, try and keep them dry as long as possible, especially when they are scabby. The longer the scabs are on, the better, the better the healing will be and the colour retention.
Step 2 – I will apply a barrier balm before you leave the salon, you must leave this on for 4 days, do not remove it or do not touch it.
Step 3 – Do not expose the area to sunlight or sun beds at all. If you are going to be in the sun then please apply sun factor 50 with a cotton bud, even though you have sun cream on them, this is still not enough barrier to protect them, therefore, you may have to pay for a third top up if they have been exposed to the sun.
Step 4 – My best advice to you is to leave the area alone as much as possible, no washing them, no wiping them, no pencil, no make up and no facial products. The more you leave them alone the better.
Step 5 – If you have dry skin you will be given a small amount of healing balm, this is for emergencies only, please apply this with a cotton bud, less as possible, only use this if your brows are really itchy and you cant handle it. The less you use it the better. You can also use this when you are having a shower or bath, just to protect the area from getting wet. If you have oily skin, do not apply anything, leave them alone, by adding healing balm, your adding more oils.
Step 6 – Lips, use a straw while they are healing for drinking, avoid salty and spicy foods.
- You need to have a 12-18 month maintenance, though it will vary for each individual.
- Avoid the sun and sunbed, please use sun factor 50 if you’re going any where near the sun or turn off facial tanners in the sun bed.
- Avoid cleansers, toners and make up remover on the brows, as this will make them fade.
- If you are planning an MRI Scan or chemical peel, then please tell them you have had permanent make up.
- Botox and Fillers can alter the shape of your lips and brows.
