Microblading/Semi-Permanent Tattoo

Microblading /semi-permanent tattoo

Microblading is an embroidery of small, precise strokes that mimic the effect of real hairs, a form of semi-permanent tattoo that involves using tiny needles (instead of a tattoo gun) to help deposit pigment under your skin. It is an extremely meticulous process that takes around two hours or more to complete.
Before and After Pictures
 
Consultation
  The first part of the process is consultation. I will talk with you in great detail about the treatment, the look you are trying to achieve and what I might recommend to you. This is very much a two-way conversation.  Once I have an idea of the look you are aiming for and if you are happy to proceed I will carry out a patch test.   If you decide to proceed with the treatment a non-refundable deposit of £75 will be required within 24 hours to secure your appointment.  The deposit will be credited toward the procedure fee.  The outstanding balance can then be paid in full on the day of your 1st treatment or split with one of our payment plans.  
Preparation
  If you’ve ever hired a professional painter they will tell you that “it’s all in the prep”.  Professional painters know that they get the best results when they spend extra time sanding, filling holes, making sure edges are smooth and applying the right primer. Well Semi-Permanent Tattoo is very similar.  You will get much better results when you properly prep. It all starts with a good canvas! The eyebrow area must be healthy, strong, non-sensitive and non- irritated.  Here’s how to get your skin ready for the procedure.

  • Do not pick/tweeze/wax/perform electrolysis one week before procedure
  • Do not tan two weeks prior or have sunburned face
  • Do not have any type of facial/peel 2 weeks prior to treatment
  • Discontinue Vitamin A/Retinol products one month prior to treatment
  • Do not work out the day of the procedure
  • Do not have Botox 3 weeks prior
  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior (natural blood thinners)
  • Do not wax or tint your eyebrows 3 days before the procedure

In order to avoid excessive bleeding and poor colour deposit:

  • Do not drink alcohol 24 – 48 hours before your tattoo
  • Do not consume coffee before your procedure
  • Do not take an aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (this thins the blood)
Treatment
  When you arrive we will review the information discussed during the consultation and ascertain if there are any changes which may affect your suitability for treatment.  Next will be to measure and mark out your brows with a makeup pencil. These can be drawn on and adjusted as many times as necessary! I will never begin the tattoo process until you are completely happy with the size, shape and position of your eyebrow design.  Using a specialist hand-tool, which holds disposable micro blades or needles, tiny precision hair strokes are created by hand, mimicking the natural direction and lengths of your brows. Pigments are then implanted into the channels created by the micro blades or needles in the dermal layer of the skin. The sensation is similar to a little scratch but you should not feel any discomfort. The treated area will look 40-50% darker than the colour chosen during the consultation but this will fade within 3-4 days.  The treatment generally takes around 2 and a half hours and will leave you with highly defined, ultra-realistic looking brows.  
Refresh Colour Boost
  A second appointment is needed 6 – 7 weeks after your first treatment. This is usually a 2-hour appointment to add more pigment to the brow area. This is because as the area is healing, some parts may not ‘hold’ as well as others and you may have a few areas that need more colour. This is completely normal and everyone heals differently. Whatever the case, I would advise you always come back for your retouch.  
Aftercare
  Aftercare Summary: From the1st to the 3rd day – several times a day, cleaning with damp cotton buds and gently blotting dry. From the 4th to the 10th day – 3 times a day cleaning with damp cotton buds, and gently blotting dry. Morning and evening, thinnest layer of ointment cream. Remember: like any other invasive cosmetic procedure this is a process. Do not expect immediate results, and please be patient. It will be a few weeks before you can fully appreciate the results, and you will love it. Micropigmentation is an invasive procedure. With a needle and a specially designed device, we import the pigment in the superficial layer of the dermis of the skin. That means that during this procedure the skin suffers a certain degree of reversible damage and stress. The superficial healing of the skin (the epidermis) is finished in about 7 days after the procedure. The in-depth, complete healing of the skin is finished after 4 to 6 weeks after the procedure. And only then you can see the final results. Immediately after the procedure, the skin of the eyebrows and the surrounding skin will be slightly swollen and red. The eyebrows will appear to be too dark, too thick and too defined with a rather unnatural “drawn in”; appearance. The colour will be significantly lighter (10-50%) and the overall appearance much softer and more natural after the healing occurs. The exfoliation – peeling off the outer layer of the skin (the epidermis) occurs on the 4th day after the procedure, and it will be complete around the 7th day. At that point, the contrast between the initial intense and dark colour and the new softer and lighter colour may be such that you may be very disappointed. DO NOT WORRY: the skin is in it's healing process and the new epidermis is blurred. You will see the final results only after the healing is complete (after 4 to 6 weeks). The first 24 hours don’t touch your eyebrows. On the second day after the procedure, the client should clean the eyebrows as often as possible (at least 3 times a day) with damp Q-tip. It can be saline water. This way the excess of plasma is removed and the forming of a large thick scab is prevented. Ideally, only a delicate film should form on the surface of the eyebrows. This film will be exfoliated starting from the 4th day. On the 4th day after the procedure, the client should start to moisturize the eyebrows. Only 2 times a day, morning and evening by applying a very thin Ointment layer (too thick layer may cause the pigment to be ejected from the skin). Moisturize the eyebrows for the next 10 days. Before applying a new layer always clean the eyebrows with dump cotton buds, blot gently to dry and only then apply the product. DO NOT PICK, PEEL OR RUB the eyebrows as the colour may heal unevenly and you could risk infection, which in turn could lead to scarring. Allow the colour to flake away by itself. The first 10 days you must avoid using any kind of makeup or skincare products directly on your brows. The first 7 days avoid exercising, long hot showers and sauna. The first 14 days avoid exposure to direct sun, tanning treatments, Jacuzzis, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools and direct shower spray. Do not receive bleaching, waxing, electrolysis or laser hair removal treatments close to your enhancement. Keep in mind that in some cases, some unevenness of the colour is to be expected. This is the purpose of the control visit allowing us to fine-tune your enhancement. This is included in the initial cost, however, if you do not attend your scheduled control appointment you will be charged for any further treatment. Cancellation notice is always 48 hours. You must wait at least 4 weeks between applications. The best 5 or 6 weeks. Touching up a tattoo prematurely may result in the ruined tattoo. The longevity of the enhancement depends strictly on the client. You will always have to use a good sunscreen spf50. Direct sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics. If you are planning a chemical peel, Botox or laser treatment, please inform the technician of your permanent cosmetics.  
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
  Why does the procedure appear larger than the design I approved? Wounds create irritation and irritation may add to the appearance of a darker pigment colour (e.g. red skin, around brown pigment, can create a purple hue). The irritation should subside in a few days. When the irritation subsides in a few days, will I see the final colour? No, there is the excess pigment in the epidermis (top layer of the skin). Which will shed during the healing period? The loss of pigment that occurs during the shedding process results in less pigment saturation and ultimately has a lightening effect on the healing of the procedure. You may actually find that some of your lines don’t appear at all. But once the healing process is well underway, and the scabs have been shed, new skin cells will eil the colour, so that it appears lighter than what is soon immediately after the procedure. When will the scabs leave? Most scabs shed within the first week, bust some stubborn ones can take longer up to two weeks). Everyone healing process is a little different. It is important to remind your customer not to interfere (pick) the scabs – no matter how bad they look. The Scabs have partially left and I see no colour! This is very common so don´t worry. You will likely see no colour, for the first 1-2 weeks but by 3-4 weeks the ink will gradually appear on the skin. When can I use my cosmetics and wash my face? You can wash your face thoroughly using a wet face flannel immediately. Use your soap or cleaner as normal. However, please ensure that you do not wet the area that has been newly tattooed. Similarly, rinse your cloth with water and wipe the rest of the face to remove any remaining soap or cleanser. Wait at least a week or until the scab has lifted before wetting or washing the treatment area you can use moisturisers such as aqueous cream after the scab has lifted and the skin is soft but avoid using any topical makeup products until advised to do so by your practitioner at your follow up appointment after approximately six weeks. How long will the scabs remain? Scabs will heal at different rates, therefore we can not predict exactly how long will last. Usually, in a healthy person, the scab will come away between 7- to days. If an immunological chronic disease or a medical condition that affects blood clotting exists, although rare, the scab may last up to 3 to 4 weeks. Is there a chance that a scab may not appear? In rare cases, the lack of thick scab has been observed, because it appears in the form of flakey peeling skin almost like a dandruff appearance. In the absence of a scab, we should still avoid contact with water until the texture of our skin becomes soft as the skin to the surrounding areas and dandruff-like symptoms are eliminated. What should I expect after the elimination of the flakey skin? After the departure of scab in many cases, it has been observed a blurred or pink version of your tattoo or even complete loss of pigment. Do not panic because this is normal especially after the tattoo application using the microblading method. Why does the brow look pink? When placing the pigment into the epidermal and dermal layers our skin rests, the body immune system steps in to heal the cut. Our body then recognises the pigment as a foreign body and tries to eliminate it by pushing it to the surface. At the same time, the surface has started the process of injured skin regeneration which justifies the pink eyebrow. The regeneration can take from 4-8 weeks. In this period we observe the daily change in colour intensity as it travels nearer towards the surface. We begin now to distinguish our tattoo with greater clarity and precision as regards the final colour and its intensity. Now we and our technician are only able to judge if we require additional hair strokes to cover any gaps caused by the loss of pigment. What should I do until my second appointment/touch up/infill? Once the scabs have fallen and the skin texture in the region is soft and the same as the surrounding skin you can safely use water and your moisturiser, you can also use a reconstructive cream to enhance the regeneration process. You can use makeup products until they receive the desired result i.e. eyebrow or lip pencils. How should I treat my tattoo now that it has healed? It is recommended that you use sunblock cream in order to protect the implanted pigment from premature discolouration due to sun exposure. The pigment will change colour with direct exposure to sunlight and this will result in premature fading or discolouration. Important to put the moisturizer in the area that has been treated in order to keep the colour vivid. Possible dehydration of the skin will result in skin peeling and frequent exfoliation of dead cells thus reduce the life span of your tattoo or even prematurely age your tattoo with colour changes. Are there any products that I should avoid using? Do not use bleaching creams, chemicals or other exfoliating products containing retinol, fruit acids or other exfoliating and whitening substances as they will adversely affect the colour and could result in premature ageing of you tattoos appearance. When Can I have infill treatment? It is advisable to make an additional appointment to determine whether you need to place a repeat session. This session should be scheduled 45-60 days after the initial application. If done earlier while the skin regeneration procedure has not been completed there is a risk of creating scarring on the already sensitive skin that has not had time to heal. There is also the risk that the final colour has not yet fully revealed and that could lead to the wrong conclusion about any alterations to your pigment choice. It better to choose to fill your gaps with a cosmetic pencil rather than rush to infill. Is there a possibility that I might need a third session? Rarely is a third needed, unless you have very oily skin? Or if you have taken prescription medications which have adversely affected the colour. The only instance where many visits are needed is in the scenario of an old tattoo correction with decoration (i.e., red, purple, green and blue) or shape reconstruction of an old defected tattoo, that can take up to as many as 5 visits. How long will my tattoo last? As mentioned, each individual is unique and for this reason, we cannot guarantee or predict the exact duration of the tattoo. It depends crucially on three factors. How oily your skin is, how large your pores are on the treatment areas and whether the correct aftercare has been followed. A semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo should last up to 1 to 1.5 years if you have methodically followed the aftercare. Beyond that time frame, the tattoo will start to blur and discolour. If you would like to reinstate the shape, colour and design, this can be done on colour refreshing visits. When should I renew my tattoo and how will I know that is time to do so? When more of the contours and the overall picture of your tattoo is not as visible but instead the image begins to blur looking like it is shaded. If you enjoyed it and would like to refresh it you must book your annual refresher before the contours and shape completely disappear. What is the difference between Microblading and Tattoo (Permanent Makeup)? They are both types of cosmetic tattooing but they use different methods. Eyebrow tattoos are permanent. Once the ink is tattooed onto the skin it is there for life but after a few years the colours it will change a bit. This is very different from microblading, where the results typically last about 8 months to a year. Simple “touch up” treatments can be done annually if the microblading patient wishes to maintain their enhanced brow. What if I don’t like my Microblading eyebrows? We want to make sure you love your new eyebrows! A thorough consultation is always carried out first. We will look at your natural brow hair and shape, face shape and make-up style. Eyebrows will be drawn on and any adjustments made until we are happy with the shape. We will discuss recommended pigments to compliment your skin tone and hair colour. Measurements are taken to ensure your new brows are perfectly placed and balanced. If you are unsure about having Microblading or have any doubts we would advise a separate consultation first.  

Lip Blush

How do you imagine permanent lips? Is there still a picture of a strongly outlined contour in your head, often going beyond lip red? Or maybe they are lips with a strong red or pink colour that in no way emphasize the beauty of the owner? Fortunately, these times are behind us! There are many different types and names for lip tattooing, including lip contouring, tattooed lip liner, lip blush, smudge-proof lips and a full tint. One of the most frequently asked questions by clients is the question of the possibilities we have when opting for permanent lip makeup. Can we get the colour of our favourite lipstick so that we never worry about improving the colour after eating or drinking? Usually, the remit is to keep the colour very close to the client’s natural lip colour to achieve the most natural look. It’s always best to start off subtle, as colours can then be intensified over time and at touch-up appointments if desired.

Lips Aftercare
  Remember: like any other invasive cosmetic procedure this is a process. Do not expect immediate results, and please be patient. It will be a few weeks before you can fully appreciate the results, and you will love it. Micropigmentation is an invasive procedure. With a needle and specially designed device, we import pigments in the superficial layer of the dermis of the skin. That means that during this procedure the skin suffers a certain degree of reversible damage and stress. The superficial healing of the skin (the epidermis) is finished in about 7 days after the procedure. The in-depth, complete healing of the skin is finished after 4 to 6 weeks after the procedure. And only then you can see the final results. The epidermis of the labial red is very thin and the tissue of the lips is very soft and vascular. That is why immediately after the pigmentation the lips are significantly swollen. They can even appear to be uneven or crooked. The colour is intense, saturated and unnatural. The swelling will be gone in several hours after the procedure, at most in 24 hours. And the lips will return in their natural shape. Within 5 to 7 days after the treatment, the damaged epidermis will shed away completely. The lips will shed away appearing as if little or no colour is present. The colour will be lighter for 20-50% depending on the pigment used for the pigmentation. DO NOT WORRY the reason for that is that the skin is in its healing mode and the new epidermis is blurred. The final colour will be visible only after 4 to 6 weeks after the pigmentation when the healing of the skin is complete. The following 7 days after the pigmentation you will feel your lips dry and chapped. The feeling of dryness may persist in the following 3 weeks. You may also feel mild itchiness as the lips heal. On the day of the pigmentation, the lips are considerably swollen. The colour is intense and saturated. On the following day, the lips are very dry, chapped, the colour is darker and matte. The exfoliation shedding of the outer layer of the skin (the epidermis) usually occurs on the 3rd day, and it will be complete around the 7th day. DO NOT PICK, PEEL OR RUB your lips as the colour may heal unevenly and you could risk infection, which in turn could lead to scarring. Allow the colour to flake away by itself. In this 7 day period, you must clean the lips several times a day with damp cotton buds. To ease the feeling of dryness you will moisturize your lips. After you clean and blot dry your lips, you will apply a very thin layer of ointment cream. Previously you must always remove the old layer, clean the lips, and blot gently to dry, only then apply a new layer. The first 10 days you must avoid using any kind of makeup, lip balms or skin care products directly on your lips. The first 7 days avoid exercising, long hot showers and sauna. The first 14 days avoid exposure to direct sun, tanning treatments, Jacuzzis, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools and direct shower spray. Do not receive bleaching, waxing, electrolysis or laser hair removal treatments close to your enhancement. Keep in mind that in some cases, some unevenness of the colour is to be expected.

The longevity of the enhancement depends strictly on the client. You will always have to use a good sunscreen spf50. Direct sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics. If you are planning a chemical peel or a laser treatment, please inform the technician of your permanent cosmetics. A rare but possible complication of the procedure is the outbreak of the cold sore (Labial Herpes), also called fever blisters. They are painful, tiny, fluid-filled blisters that form on the skin of the lips and the surrounding skin. These blisters are often grouped together in patches. After the blisters break, a crust forms over the resulting sore. Cold sores usually heal in two to four weeks without leaving a scar. The reason for the outbreak is the irritating and stressing of the skin during the procedure. The outbreaks are highly possible in clients prone to cold sores, but it can also happen to anybody for the first time in life. If an outbreak does occur it will generally begin on day 3 of the healing process. The Cold sores are a complication but they are NOT A REASON TO PANIC. They will go away completely in 2 to 4 weeks, even without any kind of treatment. If you feel itchiness or tingling of the lips on the 3rd day of the procedure start applying Acyclovir ointment several times a day, you can also use tea tree oil. As early as you start with the treatment, as soon will the cold sores go away. With the early treatment, you shorten the life span of the cold sores. Do not scratch, pick or peel the formed crust, you may cause infection and it may cause scarring. Clients prone to cold sores should consult their dermatologist and on the day of the procedure should start with preventive antiviral therapy with Acyclovir medication. You should continue this therapy for the following 3 days. The drug should be taken only and only after consulting your doctor! Please note that cold sores outbreak is possible regardless if you never have in the past.

Combo – Microblading & Powder

There are two methods for permanent makeup – manual or machine. While the latter, long-lasting machine method is still popular, the future belongs to the manual method of Strokes and Shading. The question is, why is this technique so popular? The Strokes & ShadingTechnique is unique because it suits almost all types of skin and delivers natural-looking results after healing, using the existing hair and adding shadows to emphasize the shape of the natural brow. This technique creates an especially natural result that lasts up to a year or longer depending on each client’s particular skin characteristics. The Strokes and Shading technique varies in the way drawing and shading are carried out. This should be customized individually for each client depending on the condition of her eyebrows and the desired result.
Microblading is the Japanese method of permanent brow makeup. It is one of the most popular brow drawing methods that guarantee a natural result. With microblading method, the pigment is applied under the skin with a special tool, while completely imitating the appearance and direction of growth and colour of the natural hair. A pigment close to your natural hair colour is chosen and tattooed onto your brow area to create symmetry and balance, or to create an arch that would “brighten up” the appearance of your eyes, or to create realistic eyebrows simulating hair strokes to give the effect of three-dimensionality. These simulated hair stroke tattoos will fill sparse brows or create brows where there is none. We offer a variety of permanent brow techniques to fit your personal style.

The first 24 hours don’t touch your eyebrows. On the second day after the procedure, the client should clean the eyebrows as often as possible (at least 3 times a day) with damp Q-tip. It can be saline water. This way the excess of plasma is removed and the forming of a large thick scab is prevented. Ideally, only a delicate film should form on the surface of the eyebrows. This film will be exfoliated starting from the 4th day. On the 4th day after the procedure, the client should start to moisturize the eyebrows. Only 2 times a day, morning and evening by applying a very thin Ointment layer (too thick layer may cause the pigment to be ejected from the skin). Moisturize the eyebrows for the next 10 days. Before applying a new layer always clean the eyebrows with dump cotton buds, blot gently to dry and only then apply the product. DO NOT PICK, PEEL OR RUB the eyebrows as the colour may heal unevenly and you could risk infection, which in turn could lead to scarring. Allow the colour to flake away by itself. The first 10 days you must avoid using any kind of makeup or skincare products directly on your brows. The first 7 days avoid exercising, long hot showers and sauna. The first 14 days avoid exposure to direct sun, tanning treatments, Jacuzzis, saunas, salt water, chlorinated pools and direct shower spray. Do not receive bleaching, waxing, electrolysis or laser hair removal treatments close to your enhancement. Keep in mind that in some cases, some unevenness of the colour is to be expected. This is the purpose of the control visit allowing us to fine-tune your enhancement. This is included in the initial cost, however, if you do not attend your scheduled control appointment you will be charged for any further treatment. Cancellation notice is always 48 hours. You must wait at least 4 weeks between applications. The best 5 or 6 weeks. Touching up a tattoo prematurely may result in the ruined tattoo. The longevity of the enhancement depends strictly on the client. You will always have to use a good sunscreen spf50. Direct sun exposure will fade your permanent cosmetics. If you are planning a chemical peel, Botox or laser treatment, please inform the technician of your permanent cos
