Microblading is a semi-permanent brow tattoo using a handheld tool, which creates very natural hairlike strokes. This is perfect for those who want the most natural look, or for those who want to define their brows and fill in some gaps.
Tiny hair strokes of pigment are implanted under the skin to create a natural looking brow. The colour will be custom blended to compliment your skin tone and hair colour. The hair strokes effect offers natural looking eyebrows!
MICROBLADING & SHADING
A combination of microblading hairstrokes and manual shading. Shading is done manually with a handheld tool to add a soft shade of colour in between the hairstrokes to mimic hair density.
Shading with microblading adds intensity and boldness to your brows and is best suited for those who have little to no hair, dense hair that is uneven, or for those who are used to a filled in and more full looking brow.
PERMANENT BROW PROCEDURE
A step by step guide
Before any procedure can be done, it’s important to have a consultation on the day of your appointment, so that we can discuss what’s involved and the style and shape you’re looking to achieve.
I’ll perform a full skin tone analysis and determine what pigments to use to achieve your desired brows, taking your hair colour into consideration.
I’ll use a guide colour pencil to draw on the shape of your new brows, using calipers to perfect your measurements. You’ll be able to confirm that the shape and style is correct before I proceed. A topical anesthetic is the applied to the brow area, to minimize discomfort.
The procedure takes between 60 - 90 minutes. You may feel a little scratchy sensation but this will be short lived as the anesthetic starts to do its job. I will then check your brows for any final adjustments. After care is the applied.
COMPLIMENTARY TOP UP
You will need to have a top up appointment to check the shape and colour of the healed brow and take care of any adjustment. This takes place only when skin had healed, usually 6 weeks from the initial procedure. Enjoy your brows!
Combination Brows with machine shading is the love child of microblading and powder ombre shading. The combo brow procedure is different from blade and shade, as it is a full shaded brow (using a machine) with microbladed hair strokes only at the front part of the brow.
Combo brows suit clients who prefer the filled in makeup look known as Instagram Brows who have dense and uneven eyebrows, and who still want the natural look of some hairlike strokes at the front of their brows.
OMBRE POWDER BROWS
Ombre Powder Brows is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo using a digital machine, giving you that "filled in" look. Full shaded brows can range from a soft powdery look to a more dense and bold “Instagram brow” look.
This method is darker and dense at the lower part of the brows and gradually lightens to a powdery effect towards the front and tops of the brows. The pigment lasts longer when applied in this manner as it is deeper in the skin. This technique follows a desired shape to give the appearance of natural looking brows.
The absolute best results come from keeping your brows extremely dry for the next 7 days! Keeping them dry makes them retain more detail and better colour.
Keep your face directly out of the shower stream and do your best to carefully wash hair and keep face as dry as possible.
When washing your face, be sure not to splash water onto your face like we normally do. Instead use a washcloth or disposable cleansing wipe to wash around the brows, making sure they stay dry.
If your skin starts to feel tight and dry around day 7-post treatment, you can use a small amount of Coconut Oil or a fragrance-free moisturiser if needed to gently moisturise the area once a day. Do not apply any cosmetics on your brows for at least 7 days.
No heavy exercising or sweating for at least 5 days post-procedure. If you want the best colour and detail retention, this is crucial.
After 7 days please begin to wash your face normally, including your brows with a gentle face wash.
Following the treatment, swelling and redness of the skin is completely normal and will subside within 1-2 days.
Brand new pigment may appear dark and much thicker than expected, while others might seem exceedingly bright (for blondes and redheads), be aware that this is to be expected.
During the healing phase, the area and top layer starts to scab and slough off in certain places. This process is called shedding. Comparatively, these sections may appear extremely light next to the non-shedded segments. Don’t worry, this pigment will eventually soften and settle into the appropriate shade when shedding is complete and pigment resurfaces.
Brows will appear 20% to 30% lighter within 7-10 days.
In total, it should take about 6 weeks for your new eyebrows to shed completely and the pigment to resurface to its true colour.
Some skin types retain colour better than others, so we cannot guarantee a precise effect or colour. We include a complimentary and optional touch-up session, in anticipation of individual healing results, and in turn, individual enhancements needed to your perfect brow.
