You should be aware of what to expect before you go ahead with the procedure. Permanent cosmetic procedures require multiple treatment sessions. For best results, clients will be required to return for at least one touch up procedure between four and six weeks after the initial procedure. Your eyebrows may be swollen or red immediately after the treatment for a short time and brows can appear very dark or patchy until healed, it is advised to be aware of this when making social plans for the next 7-14 days.
Microblading results in natural looking brows created using a hair stroke technique. You will not get a solid, thick dark look from microblading. You will have a thorough consultation prior to the treatment. We will discuss shape, size, colour etc. Anaesthetic cream will be applied to numb the area. Please note that everybody numbs differently, some people will completely numb and others will feel slight discomfort. Specific measurements will be taken and the shape drawn on, once agreed upon the procedure will start. Be prepared for the colour intensity to be significantly sharper and darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals. This process can take up to 14 days. During these 14 days the eyebrows will scab and appear patchy as the scabs fall off. Once the scabs have fallen off they may appear as though the pigment has disappeared, this is normal and the colour will come through before the 6th week of healing. Once the colour comes through you may find that they appear patchy, this is because some of the pigment is naturally absorbed by the lymphatic system. It is at this point you will understand why second procedure is a must. During the second procedure often referred to as the perfecting procedure the colour will be touched up and the shape perfected. You will experience the same healing routine as the first time. Once healed you will love your new brows.
DO’S AND DONT’S PRIOR TO MICROBLADING

Do feel free to bring images of desired eyebrows, bearing in mind what will suit your facial features.
Do make sure you have scheduled enough time for the procedure, this can vary from 2-3 hours.agraph here.
After the procedure, your eyebrows may appear to be too dark, too thick and with a rather unnatural “drawn in” appearance. It is only after healing is complete that you will be able to appreciate the colour and softness of your eyebrows. Most of the time, they will actually heal too light, which can be adjusted during the second procedure. Aftercare is the most important part of this procedure, please follow the instructions below to ensure the best results. REMEMBER: Like any cosmetic procedure, this is a process. Do not expect immediate results. PLEASE be patient. It will be a few weeks before you can fully appreciate the results. AND you will love it!
