With brows becoming more and more of a focus in the beauty world, microblading has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available. This popularity is attributed to its ability to improve the definition and fullness of brows and reduce the time you need for your daily makeup routine.
Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique that creates a realistic “hair-stroke” effect on the eyebrows. It involves using a fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, microblading is less invasive, and its results usually last 9-18 months, depending on skin type, skincare routine and follow-up sessions.
Am I a suitable candidate for microblading?
Microblading can help correct or reconstruct lost eyebrows and is considered a good option for those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age, or over-tweezed brows. Our specialist will help you choose pigments that match your natural or desired brow color and make sure it suits your skin tone.
Microblading may be a good option if you want to:
- Reshape your brows
- Improve the outline of your brows
- Add density and length of your brows by adding color
- Replace brows lost to alopecia or chemotherapy
- Have a long-term improvement to the appearance of your eyebrows without the need for makeup
During your consultation with our skin care specialist, they will examine your skin, run tests to check if you are allergic to pigment or anesthetic cream, and discuss your goals and desired brows shape so that they can tailor the treatment to suit your needs.
The skincare specialist will apply an anesthetic cream to reduce discomfort. The treatment involves scratching the surface of your skin to implant the pigment for a long-lasting effect.
Before the treatment start, our specialist will draw your brows with a pencil to ensure that you are happy with their shape. Once you are ready, the process of creating your new beautiful brows will begin by making tiny, hair-like strokes using a tool with thin needles and then inserting the pigment into the epidermis, giving you realistic-looking brows that don’t wash off.
Microblading is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that takes around two hours to complete, after which you can resume your usual activities, but avoid anything that might get your brows wet or sweaty for one week after your treatment.
Keep your brows protected while they are healing by applying a special ointment daily for a week after the procedure.
Avoid UV light exposure and chlorine (swimming pools) after the treatment and follow the aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing.
Microblading is a two-part treatment, and you need to come for your top-up appointment 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment.
During the top-up appointment, the specialist will assess the color and shape of your brows and make the needed touch-ups accordingly.
