What is bespoke blading or micro- blading?
Microblading is a technique whereby pigment is implanted into the skin with a manual tool. The manual tool that we use has a fixed, small, disposable blade made up of 12 needles. They are stable and every hairstroke is created with one single hand movement. The depth of the pigment implantation will not reach the deepest layer of dermis, producing an effect of extremely fine and natural looking hair.
Who is Microblading Best for?
Microblading can make sparse brows look fuller, make light brows look darker, and give brows a better overall shape. Whether your brows are suffering from years of over-tweezing or you just want to wake up with perfect-looking brows every morning, microblading might just be the answer.
Does Microblading Hurt?
Microblading doesn’t hurt as such, it is more a sensation. The process itself is not painful thanks to the numbing cream that is applied. It’s sometimes the sound of the blade which people find worse – a small scratching sound.
How long will it take to heal?
The healing time for microblading varies: Flaking is not uncommon, and some people experience scabbing—the severity of these side effects often depends on how closely you follow the aftercare instructions. Aftercare typically involves keeping brows dry for at least the first 24 hours. Within 10 days, the majority of the healing should be well under way. You will be provided with a step by step aftercare plan when you leave the salon.
How Long Does It Last?
Your microbladed brows can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years, with a touch-up recommended between 4 to 6 weeks after your initial appointment to fine-tune the results and redeposit colour.
You’ll notice that the results change throughout the first several weeks. In the early stages, the colour will likely be darker than anticipated, and certain strokes of pigment may show up stronger than others. After your touch-up, and once everything has settled in, you should be left with natural-looking, beautifully shaped brows.
Are Microbladed eyebrows for you?
Anyone can get microblading done, but not everyone should. When you book for your patch test, we will conduct a short consultation to discuss whether microblading would be a good choice for you.
Issues that may affect the results, such as:
- Prior permanent brow tattoos.
- Aging skin that has lost its elasticity around the eyebrow area.
- Scarring that you already have in the brow area.
- Certain thyroid medications and blood-thinning medications you take. (Check with your physician before having microblading done.)
