WHAT IS EYEBROW MICROBLADING?
Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure in which a fine blade is used to place pigment into the surface of the skin. The effect closely mimics the look of actual brow hairs, creating a bolder, detailed and natural looking brow. This procedure is different from a traditional tattoo in terms of permanency, colour, and overall look, and is the best way to create natural looking brows!
HOW LONG WILL MY MICROBLADED BROWS LAST?
This depends on your skin type, age group, lifestyle and activities. Generally, your brows will last between 12-24 months. After this time, the colour will fade significantly, so we recommend coming in for an annual touch up to keep your brows looking fresh and defined.
DOES MICROBLADING HURT?
We use a topical anaesthetic prior and during the procedure to numb the brow area and make you as comfortable as possible. You can expect a minor level of discomfort, but feedback from the majority of clients is that it’s very bearable.
HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY/HEALING TIME?
Everyone heals at different rates, but generally it ranges from 7-10 days. Your brows will go through a healing process during which they will appear darker, then fade out and flake and peel.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE SHAPE?
We will collaborate together to choose a perfect shape and style that is customised to your face shape and hair colour. We’ll discuss your ideal brows with you during your consultation at the beginning of the appointment, and will not proceed with microblading until you are completely satisfied with how they will look.
CAN I GET MICROBLADING OVER SCARS?
Absolutely - unless you have keloid scarring, this service is great for you! If you do have a scar, we recommend sending in a photo just so we can have an idea of what needs to be done.
AM I AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR THIS PROCEDURE?
Permanent makeup is a safe and reliable procedure, and suitable for most people. However, if you have any of the following conditions, please consult with your doctor before booking in, and bring a doctor’s certificate with you to your appointment:
Pregnant and/or breastfeeding
On blood thinning medication
Have have injections/fillers in the brow area within the last 6 months.
CAN I PLAY SPORT OR SWIM IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING MY PROCEDURE?
We recommend that you avoid sport on the day of the procedure, and avoid swimming (fresh or salt water), saunas and steam rooms for at least 7 days, or until the skin has fully healed, as this could cause infection and fading of your tattoo.
HOW WILL I LOOK IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS?
Brow procedures will only appear slightly darker. Eyes may appear slightly swollen, but this generally only lasts for 24 hours or so. Lips will swell and may remain swollen and chapped for several days.
HOW LONG DOES PERMANENT MAKEUP (EYES/LIPS) LAST?
Your eye/lip permanent makeup will last anywhere from 1-3 years. Your skin type, lifestyle and maintenance all take part in the duration. We recommend coming back in annually for a colour boost to keep the area looking as good as new!
