Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS MICROBLADING?

Microblading rose in popularity about 25 years ago in Asia, but it only became popular in Europe in 2010. Microblading is also known as brow embroidery, feathering, hair stroking. It is considered to be semi- permanent procedure. It is a fantastic treatment for anyone looking to improve or enhance the appearance of their eyebrows.

I create/ mimic hair strokes with a hand held disposable sterile very fine blade to deposit pigment into dermis. Putting the finest hair strokes back into eyebrows with pigment to provide the finest definition and dimension possible. Controlling the shape and symmetry of the brows better than ever before. For the most understated, natural looking, completely corrective enhancement to your brows.

WHO IS PERMANENT MAKEUP SUITABLE FOR ? 

​This amazing brow service suits people who ideally have the wrong brow shape, over plucked, loss of hair/patchy areas that won't grow back, for clients with Alopecia or Trichotillomania, cancer patients, or any other condition that causes hair loss. Microblading may not be a suitable procedure if your skin produces a high amount of natural oils. However, powder brows would be more suitable for oily skin.

WILL I STILL HAVE TO WAX OR PLUCK NEW GROWTH?

Yes. While I cannot control your new growth coming back, I have now given you an amazing new template to make your maintenance much easier!

What is Micropigmentaton and why it’s different to a tattoo?

Permanent makeup (PMU) or micropigmentation is the method of depositing pigments into the border between the epidermis and dermis of the skin. With an ultra-thin needle and pigment, the shape of the eyebrows, eyes or lips is enhanced. Micropigmentation penetrates the skin to a depth of only 0.08 mm to 1 mm, two layers deep, the upper layer of the dermis. And tattoo penetrates the skin to a depth of 2mm and reaches five layers of your skin. This treatment is also known as permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooing. It is often wrongly confused with cosmetic tattoos (e.g. eyebrow or eyeliner tattoos). However, the pigments used for permanent makeup are introduced less deeply into the skin layer and have a different composition from tattoo inks. Micropigmentation devices are also more refined than tattoo machines, and the techniques that are used are different. Natural, soft or intense: are all possible with micropigmentation, no matter the skin type. The pigment penetrates the skin efficiently, which makes the pigment last longer. Specialized needle formations can create crisp, natural hair strokes for an amazing result.

  • Micropigmentation eyebrow procedures range from individual hair strokes for a very natural look to a shaded powder effect.

  • Natural lips can get more defined with a basic lip liner whereas full pigmentation gives the lips a luscious 3D effect.

WHO IS  NOT IDEAL FOR THIS PROCEDURE? 

  • Someone with large pores on their forehead. However shaded/powder brows would suit you perfectly.

  • Someone with very dark existing permanent makeup. I suggest to consider removal or colour correction.

  • Someone with severely oily skin ( Pigment will look more solid than like hair strokes and may not last as long)

  • Someone who works out daily and sweats a lot. I suggest to have a week break.

  • Diabetes type 1 or 2 ( Prone to slow healing and infection, colour may or may not retain well)

  • Have Thyroid/graves disease ( Medication may cause pigment to not retain properly)​

 

If you are pregnant or nursing - Sorry, but no service, no exceptions! You cannot have this treatment done if you are pregnant or breast-feeding due to any possible allergic reaction to the numbing cream or pigments and/ or possible stress during the procedure. It is your responsibility to inform the technician prior to starting the procedure if you are pregnant or breast feeding.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

It is a semi-permanent procedure that lasts about 12 - 18 months (5 to 10 weeks touch up - is needed). Semi-Permanent make up is an ART, not a science. Client results will vary. Even though it is effective and lasts up to a year in most cases, no guarantee can be made that a specific client will benefit from the procedure. Everyone's skin is different, it is very important that each client understands that I can create perfect brows but ultimately it is up to your skin to retain the semi-permanent cosmetic service. Generally, the results are amazing but it very much depends on your own skin type, texture and oiliness. Semi-permanent makeup heals about 30% to 40% lighter.
