Microblading, also referred to as Microstrokes, diamond blading or eyebrow embroidery is a type of semi permanent makeup technique applied without using a machine. Instead of a machine a hand held tool, similar to a pencil is used that replaceable, disposable blades comprised of many small needles are attached. The microblading hand held tool is not electric and the hair strokes are drawn in by hand in the same way you would use a pencil.
The blade is up to three times thinner than some of the thinner needle choices for permanent makeup.
The first microblading techniques appeared in Asia many years ago. The techniques have since improved over time as increasingly thinner needles were used. More realistic hair stroke methods were developed over time creating 3D & 6D realism hair strokes that framed the face.

Microblading Patch Test
Every client MUST be patch tested at least 48 hours prior to treatment. Any allergic reactions will prevent treatment from going ahead.
Our treatments start with a consultation and colour analysis to discover what the best makeup look for each individual is. We choose a shape and style together. At the beginning of the microblading procedure, a suggested shape for your new brows will be done and then we work together to perfect this to your preference and measurements are taken to check symmetry and position. We will also choose a colour together by applying small amounts of different coloured pigments to the skin near to your brows and selecting the best match for your skin tone, features and personal preference.
How long do effects last?
Generally, semi permanent or tattooed makeup lasts up to 12 months with the retouch, without the retouch 2-3 months can be expected. Top-ups can be done to maintain the look for as long as they wish.
How long is the recovery or healing time?
You do not have to hide from the world until you are healed. Many clients can walk right out the door, ready to show off their new brows. Initially stronger in colour, your new brows will soften to a natural looking and beautiful colour in two to three weeks.
When will I see the final results?
A noticeable difference will be readily apparent immediately following the microblading procedure. You will see your final results after the healing process is fully completed, usually in two to three weeks.
What if I don’t like it?
Although the procedure is considered semi-permanent, these procedures do have flexibility in changing colour and shape to some extent. Colours will appear much darker immediately following the procedure but will often soften and lighten during the healing process. The healing time is also different for each individual and remember it takes time to adjust to a new look
