Microblading is becoming more and more popular as people like the fine results that it can offer.
This amazing eyebrow treatment suits people who ideally have the wrong brow shape, over plucked, loss of hair / patchy areas and won’t grow back or through medical reasons such as Alopecia or chemotherapy.
Micro-blading gently enhances your natural features, giving you more confidence in your overall appearance.
However, it doesn’t suit certain skin types:
- Excessive Sebum, Oily Skin
- Problem skin broken Capillaries
- Seborrhoea Dermatitis
- Very dry or peeling skin
- Problem skin
This is a great opportunity for you to meet Deborah and discuss your options, expectations and potential results.
- The initial consultation is free of charge. During your consultation you will be able to ask any questions you may have regarding the treatment process and Deborah will show you examples of her work.
- Consent forms will be given to you which must be completed and brought with you to your treatment. These can be emailed to you if you can’t be here.
- A scratch test is performed. You can waiver this before your treatment but you must confirm your waiver on the consent forms.
- I draw the brow design in pencil so you get an idea of shape and form.
- I take a photo of you so we can study the symmetry your features. Nobody’s face is totally symmetrical and you need to be realistic with your expectations. There is no point in trying to match a photo your favourite Celebrities Eye brows if your face shape looks nothing like theirs.
On the Procedure Day:
- Please arrive least 10 minutes before your treatment time. Late arrival can lead to your treatment being postponed to another day to avoid upsetting other clients who may be waiting for their appointments after yours.
- I clean your brow area with sterile, hygienic pads and take a ‘before’ photograph.
- The area is numbed.
- I draw the refined brow shape onto the skin. You are involved every step of the way!
- I use a Sterile Micro-blading tool and disposable blade during your procedure.
- I use EU Regulated Permanent Makeup high quality Pigments, specially manufactured for Micro pigmentation.
- When I am finished the area is cleaned, mineral make-up is used to reduce any redness and an ‘after’ photo is taken.
- You are given aftercare instructions an your follow-up retouch procedure is booked for six weeks later.
How long does it last?
Depending on how well you look after your new Microbladed Eyebrows, they will last for between 1 and 2 Years.
Aftercare: Touch Ups
You will need to return for your retouch treatment 6 weeks after the initial procedure. The retouch is important as the brow is not complete until after this stage.
Everyone’s skin heals differently and most clients develop patchy areas or the appearance of fading after the first treatment. It is important to understand that this is a two part process and the second retouch treatment will complete the procedure and, after healing, you will see the finished result. PLEASE BE PATIENT!
AfterCare: Important Info
Residual pigment, blood, white blood cells, etc, can arise from the open wound. It is very important to follow the printed aftercare instructions you are given, to avoid risk of infection during the healing period.
You can use cooled boiled water or saline with a damp cotton pad to keep the area free from dust and dirt and clean disposable tissues to pat dry. Don’t worry if dry patches or tiny scabs appear as this is normal and these usually disappear by day 10.
Does it Hurt?
No, not really. On a scale of 1-10, most clients report a discomfort of about a 3.
At the beginning of your treatment you will feel a scratching feeling while I am doing my first pass and marking the shape and design of the brow with my hand tool.
A numbing cream is then applied which is absorbed into the skin within a few seconds. Once the cream is absorbed very little feeling remains.
N.B as the skin is regenerating during the healing process the pigment can appear ‘hidden’ or feint. Again, be patient as the pigment will come forward during weeks 4-6 which is why the retouch is not done until six weeks later.
I advocate the ‘dry healing’ process but if you do feel the skin needs moisture then a natural oil is suitable. See the list of suitable oils below. DO NOT USE VASELINE or any PETROLEUM based ointments. Vaseline is a barrier not a moisturiser and will excessively dry the skin beneath and will also prevent it from ‘breathing’.
- Grape Seed oil
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Jojoba Oil
- Coconut Oil – absorbs into the skin without build up.
These oils heal the brow area holistically as well as getting the best results in retaining pigment colour in the skin.
Important Note: Avoid Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline.
AfterCare during the 10 Day healing period:
You will be given a printed information sheet with guidance on how to care for your brows during the initial healing period, this includes:
- No Sun Beds

- Do not pick scabs if any appear.
- Do not scratch or rub the brow area or pull the scabs away.
