Enhance Your Eyebrows

The desire to achieve full, lush and defined brows continues to grow in popularity. Arguably one of the most important facial features on a person, well-shaped and defined brows can make or break your entire look.

There are many options to assist with perfecting these brows, such as waxing, threading, colouring in with a pencil or powder, or even tattooing for a more permanent result. But now there’s a great new natural option that is fast, easy and can deliver semi-permanent results: microblading.

What is microblading?

Microblading is a method of tattooing a pigment under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. The microblading artist draws hair-like strokes with the tool to mimic natural hairs in your brows. The results can last up to three years, with minimal need for touch ups.

Who can benefit from microblading?

Anyone! It’s especially great for people who have sparse brows or gaps in the hairline. It’s also good for those who suffer from alopecia, hair loss due to cancer treatments, and those who want to add a slight arch to their brows.

How does one prepare for treatment?

There are some certain preparations that one should take before having microblading done. Before treatment, avoid any blood-thinners, such as aspirin or vitamin e, and discontinue skin treatments, such as retinol, that can thin the skin. Don’t pluck or wax your eyebrows for a week before treatment.

Further, to ensure the process is as efficient and effective as possible, avoid sunburns, caffeine, alcohol and any types of facial peel for at least three days before treatment as this can add to bleeding and create a poor colour distribution. You primarily want to ensure that your skin is as relaxed and healthy as possible before the treatment.

Post-treatment

One of the benefits of microblading is there is little to no downtime. On the day of treatment, the brows may look slightly red, and the brow will look stronger and darker than expected – but don’t worry, the redness will fade within the day.

After your first treatment, your specialist will re-evaluate the job around six weeks later. It’s then that we can see if another touch-up treatment is needed to add fullness or shape. After that, you and your lovely new brows are good for at least a year to 18 months. After that, you’ll likely need touch-up treatments as the colour fades over time.
