What is Microblading?

Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow treatment that creates the appearance of natural brow hairs. The treatment is carried out by using a manual microblading tool to implant pigment into the    upper layer of the skin. It can be used to fill in sparse brows, create a new brow shape, create        symmetry or simply enhance existing brows to become the most perfect eyebrows for you.

The benefits of Microblading are:

  • Natural-looking results: It creates the appearance of individual brow hairs, giving a very natural look.
  • Long-lasting results: It results can last up to two years.
  • Low maintenance: Once your treatment is complete, you will not need to fill in your brows with makeup every day.
  • Water-resistant: It is water-resistant, so you can swim and sweat without having to worry about your brows smudging.

Who is it For?

Microblading is a great option for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their eyebrows and frame their face beautifully.  It is especially popular with people who have over plucked their brows in the past, or who have lost brow hair due to age or medical conditions. It is also a good option for people who want to create a new brow shape, or who simply want to enhance their existing brows.

How is it Done?

Microblading is done in two steps:

  1. Consultation: The first step is a consultation and patch test with your microblading artist. During the consultation, your artist will discuss your desired brow shape and color. They will also assess your skin type and condition to make sure that you are a good candidate for microblading. BROW HQ have a team of award-winning artists so you can be sure you will be in the most expert hands.
  2. Treatment: The second step is the treatment itself. Your artist will begin by numbing the area around your brows, they then fully map your eyebrows out and choose the appropriate colour ensuring you are completely happy with the shape and colour before they start the microblading procedure. Then, using a sterile microblading tool pigment is gently implanted into the upper layer of your skin. This is not painful and just feels a little scratchy.  The treatment typically takes about two hours to complete, you are kept comfortable throughout and collaborated with every step of the way.

Aftercare for Microblading

After your treatment, it is important to follow your artist’s aftercare instructions carefully. This will help to ensure that your brows heal properly and that the results last. Aftercare instructions typically include:

  • Clean the brows twice a day using cool-boiled water
  • Applying a healing ointment to your brows twice a day
  • Avoiding UV light and excessive heat for 7 days
  • Avoiding strenuous activity for a few days
