Are you looking for expert microblading near Birmingham? If you long for fuller-looking brows, whether you missing parts to the tail, bulb or even lack of brows altogether then microblading could be perfect for you. I hear time and time again at consultation how ladies are tired of filling in their brows daily, microblading changes that for you. Giving you a natural, fuller and flawless brow shape, wouldn’t it be amazing to wake up each morning with fuller brows?
I will design a bespoke brow to cater for your individual need, your colour will be chosen and matched best to suit your skin tone and hair colour. As everyone is so individual I am able to help you achieve an enhanced finish to suit you whether that’s a light subtle natural enhancement or a beautifully bold brow, the choice is yours. The objective is always to enhance your natural shape and produce a fuller and flawless-looking brow.
Types of Permanent Brows
We have all been there and spent endless time and hassle trying to pencil, powder, and draw on our brows…. Not only is it time-consuming to find the right colour for our brows but then having to create symmetry and shape every morning or evening you go out can be somewhat of a chore. Take the hassle out of everyday brow filling and take some time back for yourself or an extra ten minutes in bed.
Permanent brow make-up can give you smudge-free and waterproof brows, so gone are the days of an intense gym session to find your brows are running off your face or waking up in the morning to no brows and having to redraw them in for your day ahead. Permanent makeup will provide you a professional shape and colour to match your brow hair, enhance your natural beauty and give an instant facelift setting your eyes with new beautiful brows.
All brows are created for the individual, upon consultation we will discuss which will be best for you and all types can be tweaked to suit the individual making your procedure a totally bespoke treatment just for you.
Please NOTE all procedure will initially be very BOLD and will fade and shrink by 30/40% once healed.
This will give your brows more of a fuller look, much like they do when you apply makeup powder or brow gel to them, hides the gaps and best for those with sparse to little brows and oily skin.
A similar look of powder but will have a much softer finish and a faded front bulb to the brow so its much more subtle than full-on powder, no harsh lines.
This is individual hair strokes created through the brow to imitate your brow hairs creating a soft and subtle look.
Strokes and powder/ombré (strokes tend to be at bulb only and softer shading of powder throughout).
How Long Does it Last?
Microblading is a semi-permanent pigment that can generally fade naturally within 12/18 months.
Is A Top Up Needed?
I recommend a top up every 9-12 months (depending on clients lifestyle) which will mean a reduced fee £90/120, this will help keep the hair strokes looking fresh. Clients with oily skin may need a top up more frequently.
Do You Need A Consultation?
Yes, you will need a pigment test and anaesthetic test firstly to ensure there is no reaction to the products used. If no reaction we can then go on to book your first treatment.
What Happens Next?
Your first session will start with mapping your brows to create the shape and fullness you desire. I do follow the natural brow line but this can be tweaked to a certain extent once we have mapped your natural brow shape. There is no standard shape so each brow is individual to each client. Once mapped, the outline of the brow is created and you will get to chance to change this if you wish at this point.
I ensure the brows are symmetrical and once you are happy with your new brow shape we can then begin the first pass of microblading. This can take up to two hours depending on the work needed. Each hair stroke will have 2/3 passes.
Once finished your brow is now only 50% complete. It will be completed once you have had your top-up 4/8 weeks later. In the second session, I go over the hair strokes that have faded down after healing to pick them back up. At this session we can decide if you want to go darker or if you want to go thicker/longer or add extra hair strokes – this can only be done in the second session. Please note the sessions have to be 4/8 weeks apart to see the colour after healing not any sooner or later.
Does it Hurt?
There is a level of discomfort by the third pass on your first treatment but this is only a slight discomfort. Much like threading of brows it’s actually not even as bad at threading. You will be surprised how little you feel it throughout.
On finishing your first session you will be given guidance on aftercare as well as a sheet to take home along with Vitamin A & D ointment to help your brows heal. Please do not be alarmed after your first session as your brows will be up to 50% darker initially, over the next 28 days your brows will fade, some strokes will be completely lost usually between 7-21 days, and some will reappear and others will not. Do not worry this is all part of the process and the reason we have two sessions as these strokes will be reapplied on top-up.
You can not guarantee everyone’s retention of strokes as we are all individuals, some will hold pigment very well and hardly need any touch-up within 4/6 weeks, and other’s will not hold well and will be faded sooner or completely disappear. You will have my full aftercare and support if at any time you have any questions I’m always available to help.
Do not get your brows directly wet; shower/bath water, pool, sweating or any other liquids for 10 days after the treatment. Even a small drop which seems unimportant may expand the wound / possible infections / excessive scabbing may appear, and you may ruin the results.
Avoid sweating (of any kind), gym, do yoga and swimming for 10 days. If you work out regularly results may heal more to a powdered look due to the oils the body produces when it gets heated and sweaty.
- Day 1 – Clean the area with a small amount of sterile water on a cotton pad/gauze (NOT SOAKING WET JUST DAMP) every 1-2 hrs for the first day. This will help remove any excess lymph, blood and pigment that may appear after the procedure. Wipe gently until the pad is clear. Use a tissue to compress and ensure the lymph has gone. Make sure brows are clean and dry then apply Micro Balm (grain size) lightly before bed (minimum 6 hrs after treatment)
- Day 2 – Clean the brows with a small amount of sterile water on a cotton pad/gauze every 2 hrs, do not apply water directly to brows, ensure all lymph gland has stopped before balming. Compress with tissue, dry then apply a thin layer of balm 2 x per day (only if there is no more lymph). Balm before bed
- Days 3-4 – Wipe morning and night with damp cotton pads to ensure brows are clean, pat dry then apply balm morning and night – apply only a grain size of balm. In case of dryness, you may balm up to 3/4 times a day. Make sure your eyebrows are not greasy, it needs to be a gain size amount just to moisten a little so you won’t see any residue of the balm.
- Days 4-10 (flaking stage) Once brows start to flake stop wiping and use balm only up to 3 times per day. If you have oily skin you may only need to balm once but if dry you can balm up to 3/4 times.
- Do not use other ointments, make-up, cream with vitamins or antibiotics on eyebrows during the healing process – only after day 10
- No sunbathing or tanning for 4 weeks. No direct sun exposure.
- No Retinols, AHA’s, exfoliating treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, botox and any other strong treatments for 6-8 weeks after your procedure.
- Smoking WILL cause the pigment to fade prematurely and anaesthetics will not last as long.
- DO NOT USE growth enhancement products such as Latisse, Revitabrow, or Grande lash, one month prior and after treatment has fully healed as it may shift your colour.
- DO NOT PICK OR RUB BROWS – if you pick you will lose pigment and risk scarring
PLEASE REMEMBER that the colour is up to 50% darker immediately after treatment. It will fade after 7 days and the true colour will not come through until up to 4/6 weeks after the initial treatment. During the healing process, the colour can appear to have disappeared due to the healing process. Under no circumstances should you undergo any further permanent cosmetic work undertaken during this 6-week period. The colour will reappear as the healing process progresses.
GENERAL POST-PROCEDURE INFORMATION
To avoid pigment fade for as long as possible, please avoid excessive exposure to UV rays and the sun and please use a total sunblock or moisturiser with a high SPF. (once brows healed at 4 weeks)
In order to keep your permanent cosmetic procedure in perfect condition, it may be necessary to have a maintenance procedure from time to time generally 12 months depending on skin type and on the area.
If you are planning to undergo an MRI scan, chemical peel or another similar procedure, please inform your doctor that you have had permanent cosmetics.
If at any time you are concerned about your healing brows please contact me or your GP.
Microblading Before Care
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 microblading 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.
You have to be off Accutane or any prescribe acne medications for 1 year. NO Exceptions!
Do not take Aspirin, Fish Oil, Niacin, Vitamin E and/or Ibuprofen or blood thinners, unless medically necessary, 72 hours prior to your procedure. Tylenol is fine.
Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energizing drinks on the day before and of procedure. This will minimize any oozing/bleeding or swelling after the procedure.
If you are use to getting your brows tinted, do at least 1 week prior to the permanent makeup procedure.
Do not tan or sun bathe 30 days before and after the procedure.
If you get your eyebrows waxed, threaded, or tinted, please have this done at least 72 hours prior to your scheduled procedure. It is recommended to wait at least 14 days to have them waxed or threaded & 30 days for tinting after the procedure.
Do not have any chemical peels, microdermabrasions, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatments which will cause faster skin cell rejuvenating and cause skin irritation 3-4 weeks before procedure.
Wash your hair before the procedure.
