Microblading in Southampton

Semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing

Microblading is semi-permanent tattooing, which uses nine tiny blades (microblades) to deposit pigment under the skin of your eyebrow. It provides definition, enhances fullness and can be used to alter the shape of your brows.

How does microblading work?

Microblading uses a specifically designed tool, which bleeds pigment into the small scratches on the epidermis to create fine lines mimicking stroked of hair. The overall look is natural and realistic. Prior to using the blades, your technician will draw and fill in your brows to determine your desired look.

Who should get their eyebrows microbladed?

Whether you’ve got naturally sparse brows, suffer from thinning hair or alopecia, or just fancy a bit more definition, anyone can give microblading a go.

Does microblading hurt?

We are not going to lie, microblading is not totally pain free, but it is also not unbearable. It’s pretty much how you would imagine teeny-tiny blades to feel on your brows – a bit scratchy. It’s over relatively quickly and once you’ve seen your new brows, you’ll forget all about the pain. There can be a little discomfort during the healing process, but again, it’s nothing we can’t handle in the name of beautiful brows, right?

What’s the healing process like?

At first your eyebrows, with their newly defined shape, full look and enhanced colour will look fabulous. Then you will notice the pigment darken – do not worry as this will settle!

After around 3-5 days, your eyebrows will start to flake and peel.  Do not pick at the dry skin and keep applying the aftercare balm. The flaking can last for up to 10 days and the colour may appear to fade and become lighter than expected. This is normal.

After about 2 weeks, your brows will look how they are supposed to look, but it is important to maintain long term care. Ensure that the brow area is clean and moisturised and keep out of direct sunlight wherever possible.

Will I need a top up?

About 4-6 weeks after your first treatment, you’ll need a follow up appointment to top up the pigment and to make any small adjustments to the shape or fullness.

How long does it last?

Again, depending on how thick/full you want your eyebrows to look and how well you stick to the aftercare guidelines, microblading can last between 1-3 years. A top up may be required within 12 months.

Microblading aftercare

For the first 7- days post treatment:

  •  It is important that you do not get your eyebrows wet
  • Use the healing balm provided regularly at night. Apply using a cotton bud and not with your fingers!
  • Do not apply any make-up on the area.
  • No swimming, sauna, jacuzzi or sunbeds

Up to 6 weeks post treatment:

  • Do not have any other cosmetic treatment such as facials, skin peels, lasering etc
  • Do not pick, peel or scratch the treated area.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure for the first 14 days. After 10 days, make sure that you use an SPF 20 or higher. This should be applied directly to the area.

  • In warmer climates, keep your brow area covered with a hat or a large pair of sunglasses.
