Microblading is a permanent make up technique (also known as a cosmetic tattoo or semi permanent make up) with which individual hair strokes are added to the brow to create a natural looking and fuller brow shape. Unlike other forms of permanent make up or cosmetic tattooing, microblading is performed using a hand held tool with a number of tiny needles placed together to form a blade. Microblading is best suited to younger, normal skin types and those with existing brow hair in place.

Technically microblading is a type of tattoo therefore should be considered a permanent technique. Although the pigment should fade over time, individual skin type and how deep the pigment was implanted will affect how long it stays in the skin. In some cases, even after several years, some pigment may still remain in the skin.

Microblading can create a natural looking brow by adding individual hair strokes to your own brows. Results look best when there is already hair in place as this will help blend the microbladed strokes into the shape.

Microblading involves breaking the skin in order to implant pigment therefore you may experience some discomfort however your technician should work carefully and gently in order to keep you as comfortable as possible. A numbing cream may also be used by your technician to keep discomfort to a minimum.

Microblading should fade gradually over time and will require topping up every year or so in order to keep it looking vibrant. Long term results depend on factors such as skin type, depth of work and type of pigment used. It should be considered that some pigment may remain in the skin permanently.

It is not recommended to have microblading if you are pregnant or breastfeeding due to risk of infection and other health factors.

A microblade is a handheld tool with a number of tiny needles positioned to form a blade. The microblade is dipped into pigment before scratching the skin to implant it.

The initial procedure usually takes between 1.5 and 2 hours. In most cases a top up session is required 6 weeks later and this usually takes less time.

Firstly, prior to your appointment your technician should carry out a patch test and consultation to ensure that microblading is suitable for you. At your microblading appointment your technician should take time to find out about your preferences before then mapping and drawing your new brows. Once you are happy with the shape and style your technician will then proceed with the microblading technique. At the end of your appointment you will be given aftercare advice and after care products to ensure the best healed results.

After microblading you will need to keep your brows dry until they have healed which is usually 10-14 days. You will be given after care products to use and should not use any other products on your brows during the healing process. You should also avoid any heat treatments and sun exposure whilst they heal. Long term after care includes good skin care and sun protection. Factors such as diet, smoking and lifestyle will affect the long term results of microblading.

A patch test should always be carried out by your technician prior to your appointment.
