Microblading

What Is It?

Semi-Permanent Makeup/Microblading, also known as Cosmetic Tattooing or Micro pigmentation is the perfectly safe process whereby minute particles of pigments are implanted into the dermal layer of the skin The aim is to imitate natural hair or perfectly applied makeup with results that can be as subtle or dramatic as you would prefer. 

This treatment is not permanent but gradually fades over time (18 months-5years)

A colour boost treatment is recommended after 12 months in order to maintain a fresh appearance. 

 

How Does It Work?

When you arrive Jay will apply numbing cream to the area to be treated, whilst the cream works its magic you will complete some paperwork and then look at before and after photos of Jays work so that Jay can get an idea of which style of brow you would prefer. 

Jay can help you with this process advising you which shapes and styles will best fit your face and structure. 

Jay will then spend time choosing a pigment that will be the correct colour for your brows ( It is important to note that the colour used is not ink like in a regular tattoo but is a natural based pigment which means that it works with the natural pigments in your skin, this means that pigment selection is very important as a colour which may look nice in your friend with a different skin tone could look a funny blueish or reddish colour in your skin). 

Jay will show you the pigment that she feels will be most suitable for you and can lighten or darken this colour to suit your preferences. 

Jay will then remove the numbing cream and begin measuring and marking your face to find where your brow should start, arch and end. 

Jay will then draw your brows on within these markings and show you how she feels the brow should be tattooed/microbladed. 

Jay can edit this shape to suit your preference but it is important to renumber that Jay does this day in and day out and is trained to know which brow shape suits which face shape. 

Once you are happy with the shape Jay will begin to tattoo/microblade. 

Most clients are surprised that the treatment is not painful and most clients actually experience a tickling sensation. 

The needles/blades used do not go as deep into the skin as with a regular tattoo and are specially designed to be used on the facial areas. 

Once Jay has completed the treatment she will show you the results and ensure that you are both happy with the treatment. 

 

What about Aftercare?

For 7 days following the treatment you must not touch the treated area, no makeup or water should touch the area, you must keep it clean and dry. 

You must not go on the sunbed for 7 days. 

There is a four stage healing process. 

Heal

Peel

Fade

Reveal

Clients that follow the aftercare instructions have a slightly faded brow when they return for their 4-8 week top up treatment where the above process is performed again.

Jay will provide you with written aftercare instructions to take home and is always available to answer any questions you may have during the healing process.
