Microblading is a brow boosting procedure that’s taking the beauty world by storm.  So natural and intricate that it’s often described as ‘brow embroidery’,  Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure whereby hair like incision strokes are created along the eyebrow to attempt to either enhance, reshape or create a natural looking appearance on the brows. The procedure entails the use of a nanoblade, which is dipped into a pigment that has been matched to natural hair colour and skin tone and is then glided along a sketched outline of the brow that has been drawn on and scrutinized beforehand. Whilst only penetrating into the upper skin, the pigment is deposited simultaneously with the creation of the hair like stroke leaving a feathered outline

Also known by a variety of names such as embroidery, microstroking, feather touch and hair like strokes, microblading eyebrows is a form of semi-permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments. Over time the strokes can blur and fade and will need to be refreshed.

Please note that a minimum of two appointments are necessary to complete the treatment and a patch test is required.

'If you want natural looking brows then Nicola is your girl. She put me at ease from the moment I arrived, and took such good care of me! My brows are stunning and have literally changed the whole shape of my face. I was so pleased when I saw them that I cried! Amazing, would be more than 5 stars if there was an option.'                             

- Louise Rogers

I was so nervous about getting my brows done but Nicola put me at ease from the start and did an amazing job. 

From next to nothing to beautiful natural looking brows Nicola is so talented. I love them and most people can’t believe they are not natural - I only wish I’d had it done sooner! 

I would highly recommend Nicola to anyone thinking of having this done, you won’t regret it!            - Joanna Russell

'Nicola is amazing!! I felt totally at ease and trusted her 100%. People can’t even tell that my eyebrows have been micro bladed, they have faded to a perfect colour to blend in with my natural brow.  Her room is immaculate and beautifully decorated!  Thank you Nicola for my brows, I love them xx'

- Chanelle Herridge

'Nicola is very professional and the room all clean and hygienic. I was really excited about getting ‘eyebrows’ after having hardly any for years..I have thyroid problems and it’s always meant my eyebrows have been sparse. Nicola put me at ease and explained everything  about the microblading procedure.  Then she pencilled on the shape and confirmed I was ok with it before going ahead. It didn’t hurt, it was just a little scratchy feeling but worth it for the end results.   I thought they were a little dark at first but they soon lightened & were more my natural colour after a few days/week.   Highly recommend Nicola and microblading!'

'I highly recommended NP brows. Nicola is so talented and I absolutely love my brows. Xx'

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a manual, semi-permanent technique of hyper-realistic eyebrow drawing in which the shape of eyebrows is calculated according to the facial morphology and golden mean. The technique is intended for anyone over the age of 18 who wants to correct the aesthetic problems of their eyebrows. 

It is done using a very fine blade (made up of 18 tiny, fine needles configured into a blade shape) to deposit pigments into the top layers of the skin.

Because we’re impacting colour closer to the top skin surface, the strokes appear and remain crisp and extremely fine.

This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows without it looking overly obvious. The results are very natural looking and leave feathered hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present. Strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hair growth in order to achieve a hyper-realistic eyebrow look.

The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow colour and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into the existing hairs.

Can anyone have the treatment?

We require all clients to be over 18 at the time of their appointment.  Certain medical conditions may restrict or prevent the treatment- such as; 

chemotherapy, radiation therapy (but before or after chemo/radiation therapy may be possible) 

If you are pregnant or if you are breastfeeding,   If you are Diabetic, Has an autoimmune disease,  Has Thyroid/graves disease ( medication may cause pigment to not retain properly, please speak to me about this).  If you are on blood thinners/heart medications of any sort,  Has viral infections and/or diseases or sick (cold/flu) , Is Epileptic,  Is on a pacemaker or major heart problems,  Has had an Organ transplant,  Has skin irritations or Psoriasis near the treated area (rashes, sunburn, acne, etc.) Is prone to keloid scars,  Has had Botox in the past 3 weeks,  Has used Accutane in the past year, Has oily skin or large pores (pigment will disappear quickly or look powdered; more touch-ups are required)  

If you are under a physician's care, you will need to bring in a release on their prescription note pad stating that it's safe for you to have microblading performed. Your physician will know if you will heal without complications, if you are prone to infections, or have a compromised immune system. 

Does it hurt? 

The sensation of microblading is said to be similar to tweezing or threading. A topical anesthetic can be used to minimize discomfort. Note that if you are on your menstrual cycle then it could increase your sensitivity to pain. 

Will I get an allergic reaction?

A patch test is always carried out at least 48 hours before the procedure.  Despite the application of the most advanced and top quality pigments, allergic reaction is possible but rare.  The client is informed about this and he/she assumes liability.

Can you use a Sunbed or Sunbathe afterwards?

We advise clients to avoid direct sunlight and use of sunbeds for 10-14 days after your initial treatment.  After this period, we recommend our clients to use SPF 50 sun cream on their brows for protection and to maximise the finished look.

How long will it last? 

Although there is no definitive answer because it depends on each individual's skin type and lifestyle, results can last anywhere from 1-2 years.  Factors such as density of pigment, environmental factors (UV light, tanning, not using sun protection), and your overall health/physiology (retention of pigment varies with each person) impact how long the procedure will last. If you have very oily skin, are a smoker, and/or iron deficient/anemic, pigment will fade faster.  It is very important to follow aftercare instructions carefully for best results.  Over time, the pigment will become softer so a color boost treatment is recommended every 6-12 months.  The pigment is absorbed differently due to differences in the skin quality, thus there is no warranty for the treatment success.

Will I need a touch up? 

Yes. Within 7-10 days from your first treatment, the color will fade significantly and over the next four weeks can continue to fade as much as 40% and also shrink in size by 10-15%.  After this period your follow-up appointment is carried out. At your touch up appointment, any changes you would like to make are discussed. Once again you can expect the color to fade, but to a much lesser degree.  

How often should I come in to refresh the color? 

In order to keep your microblading results looking fresh, we recommend a touch up every 6 months - 12 months

How can I extend the life of my procedure?

Your microbladed eyebrows will last longer if you strictly follow the aftercare procedures.

How long does the procedure take? 

This will vary with the type of and sensitivity of the skin.  Generally speaking, microblading takes about 3 hours.  

Can I resume normal activity, exercising, gardening etc? 

Most normal activities can be resumed right away. Heavy exercise should be avoided for 7-14 days for best results—any sweat formed on your brows can fade your healing color. Swimming should be on hold for at least a week, pool chemicals would erode your healing color as well. Outdoors activities such as gardening can be resumed as long as your treatment area remains clean, dry, and out of the sun. 

Is there going to be any scabbing? 

There can be a little scabbing if your skin is sensitive. DO NOT pick off these scabs; picking scabs may result in a loss of color or minor scarring.

Why do I see color flaking off after a week? 

This can happen for a number of reasons, but it usually has to do with skin type. Older skin, more weathered skin, and drier skin may flake color off during the healing process. There should be color underneath, but if not, Nicola will  touch it up at your follow up appointment.

Will I be swollen? 

During and after the treatment temporary swelling, redness and/or itching may occur.  Experience tells me that these symptoms are temporary.

I already have permanent makeup and want to change the shape or color. Can you help? 

Yes, changes to your old design can be made however this depends on the color and shape you already have. I will need to see your old pmu before deciding if treatment is possible.

Can it be removed? 

Small exfoliations and corrections may be possible but if you want a complete removal you should see a laser specialist.

Are results guaranteed? 

Microblading is an art not an exact science therefore healed results varies with each person. NP BROW DESIGN make no guarantees about how your brows will heal and you may need additional sessions for best results (at an additional charge).  Various factors affect healed results and Nicola does her best to provide you with the best service with the high quality training she has received.  Please read the FAQ's and Before/Aftercare that Nicola gives you at the consultation appointment to determine if microblading is a good fit for you.  

​NOTE: NP BROW DESIGN does not have control over your body's healing process (healing is specific to each individual) but do expect that some residual swelling is normal for all procedures.  The area may appear uneven, dry, itchy, tender, red & irritated. This is all 100% normal.  DO NOT PICK.   These symptoms will dissipate each day and vary on an individual basis. Color WILL fade/soften anywhere from 40% to 60%.  At the touch up faded areas will be fine tuned.  It is also important to realize that you will need a color boost every 9-12 months after the touch-up to maintain it's fresh natural appearance.   You may need to powder and/or pencil even after the healed results.  Remember, this is an enhancement to your natural brows not a permanent one.
