WHAT IS EYEBROW MICROBLADING?
Eyebrow Microblading, also known as feather touch tattooing is an advanced manual embroidery technique of semi permanent makeup taking the industry by storm. It is done using a very fine blade (not a machine) made up of 10-16 tiny, super fine needles, to deposit the hypo-allergenic pigments into the epidermis. Because colour is implanted closer to the skin surface, the strokes appear natural looking and extremely fine just like real hairs.
Unlike the harsh block tattooing of the past, eyebrow microblading looks completely natural because it mimics real brow hair and can be individually customised. Depending on your needs, brows can be subtly coloured or completely remodelled as each new stroke one by one, is carefully constructed and coloured by hand.
The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow colour, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into the existing hairs. If no hair is present (in cases of alopecia or hair loss) completely new brows can be constructed and look real!
The results are a natural, flawless, beautifully shaped, fuller looking brows. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade significantly over a two week period. It is crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.
The results can last up to 2 years, depending on different factors such as client’s skin type, sun exposure, chemicals contained in creams and products applied to the skin which could fade and break down the pigment sooner etc.
A Colour Boost Retouch once every 12 months is recommended to retain the shape and freshen the colour.
Allow 2 hours for your initial treatment including consultation, design, numbing & procedure.
Nicole is known for her eyebrow shaping and restoration abilities and uses a unique method of face & feature measurement to determine the ideal shape and design to suit you, together with consultation to meet your needs. After full consultation, Nicole will measure and draw in your new brows, allowing you to agree on the best shape & thickness to suit your face.
Anaesthetic is continually applied during the procedure to keep discomfort to a minimum. Aftercare instructions are given and first touch up/perfecting appointment is scheduled (6-8 weeks from initial procedure)
There is no down time after procedure, brows will appear darker for 1-2 weeks before healing and fading to a natural colour, but most people feel comfortable to return to work within the first 1-2 days. Aftercare cream will be given and must be applied 2-3 times per day for 2 weeks, whilst brows are kept clean and free of other products.
Before & After eyebrow microblading by Nicole:
(images are before & immediately after procedure whilst brows are still fresh and appear darker, they will heal and fade over 2 weeks to appear much softer in colour)
This procedure is not suitable if you are: taking Accutane, blood thinners, are diabetic or have trouble healing, are pregnant. If you have high blood pressure, low blood pressure or any heart conditions please let us know upon booking, a medical certificate may be required before treatment can be performed.
Nicole may decline to work over existing cosmetic tattooing done elsewhere – please let us know prior to booking if you have existing cosmetic tattooing so that a consultation can first be performed to assess suitability for this procedure.
Colour WILL fade/soften between 20% to 50% or more. At the perfecting session we will fine tune any area that has faded too much, the treatment is not considered finished until the perfecting session has been performed. Healing is specific to each client. It is important to realize that you will need a colour boost every 12-18 months to maintain it's fresh natural appearance. Fading WILL happen after each procedure. We do not have control over your bodies healing process. You may need still to powder and/or pencil even after the healed results. This is an enhancement to your natural brows....not a permanent one.
Due to the build up of scar tissue, touch ups will not be done any sooner than 12 months after the 1st touch-up.
If you are out in the sun a lot, have oily skin, use anti-aging creams, retin A/retinol products, acidic cleansers, smoking, regular chemical peels, or exercise frequently, your permanent makeup WILL fade prematurely. The better you take care of the treated area and follow the provided aftercare, the longer it will last.
