Amita is trained in the art of microblading. This amazing semi-permanent eyebrow technique is making headlines around the world due to its stunning natural affect that can bring your brow game up to the next level! Amita prides herself on giving each client the time and attention they need in order to give them the result they want, providing natural looking eyebrows. Customer satisfaction is of prime importance to her ensuring her clients are completely happy with the shape, design and colour to be applied before proceeding with the treatment. Micro-pigmentation is not an exact science and every client heals differently. This is an elective procedure and is not medically necessary. The results are not guaranteed as all skin types heal differently and the pigment colour used can heal a slightly different colour.
What is Microblading?
Microblading is a manual method, using a very fine microblade to deposit pigments into the skins epidermis. The blade glides with gentle pressure over the skin and causes a fine cut, the cut is as fine as a papercut and you can hardly distinguish it from real hair. This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows and fill any sparse areas in the brow. The results are natural looking hair like strokes. Immediately after the procedure the colour can appear darker and it can fade 30-50%. Microblading is done in 2 procedures spaced 6 weeks apart.
Microblading can last around 6-18 months but everyones skin holds onto the pigment differently.
What happens pre & post treatment?
A patch test is required and this can be posted out to you along with the medical forms for completion. Every client needs to return for a second treatment as SPMU is a multi-treatment process where pigment is layered. The second treatment cannot take place for 6 weeks, depending on healing. Immediately after treatment, the colour will appear darker than that chosen and that this darker colour will lighten over the following 5-14 days. All colours will fade and alter with time, and that a re-touch is recommended every 12-18 months to maintain a fresh appearance.
After each treatment, the area treated may swell or show redness. Clients must strictly adhere to the after-care instructions given and only use the after-care products given.
Reaction to anaesthetics can occur, even after a patch test. While rare, there is a possibility of pigment migrating under the skin. Complications are possible, particularly if post-procedure aftercare instructions are not followed. Any sun exposure, skin-altering treatments (such as plastic surgery, peels, implants or injectables) may alter the results of the procedure and change its appearance.
When the procedure has been completed the technician will provide the client with the opportunity to discuss any immediate concerns and provide them with aftercare instructions that must be adhered to.
Following your treatment, you may experience a number of symptoms, including flaking, tenderness, dryness and itching, swelling and/or redness. If you are feeling less than 100% healthy, your treatment may take longer to heal and symptoms may feel more severe.
After the Microblading procedure you should use the following regime for 7 days:
- Apply the moisturising balm that you were provided to the area, once a day, you must wash your hands before and after applications.
- Use a gentle facial cleanser, avoiding the treated areas. Do not splash your face with water.
- If the treated area does get wet, gently pat dry with a clean towel or tissue. Do not wipe or rub.
DO NOT expose the treated area to extreme heat or cold until fully healed. This includes sunbathing, tanning beds, saunas, etc.
DO NOT apply Vaseline to the treated area – it will make the area sweat, causing the pigment to heal incorrectly. Vaseline can be used after the 7 day healing process and is recommended if you plan to use chlorinated swimming pools or Jacuzzis – you should use a protector when your permanent makeup is in contact with strong chemicals like chlorine.
DO NOT scratch, pick, peel or rub the treated area, as this will cause the colour to heal unevenly and could cause scarring or infection.
REMEMBER – the colour will be up to 50% darker straight after your treatment. It will fade over the first 4-7 days, but the true colour won’t come through until up to 4-6 weeks after to initial treatment – this is why you have to wait 4-6 weeks before you can have any further treatment done. You may find that it looks as though the colour has disappeared during that time, as the healing skin may obscure the colour for a short time.
In order to keep your brows in perfect condition, you may need to have a maintenance procedure every 12-18 months. This varies by the individual and special prices are available for maintenance work. To avoid pigment fade as far as possible, use at least SF30 sunscreen or moisturiser, and avoid excess exposure to UV rays.
If you need to have an MRI scan you should inform your radiologist that you have permanent makeup, as this can sometimes appear on your scans. Laser hair removal can also fade and change the shade of your brow procedures. You should always let the laser technician know that you have permanent makeup so that they can act accordingly. You will not be eligible to donate blood for at least 6 months after a procedure. Please inform the National Blood Service of the date of your procedure when you next give blood. Wash your hair with your head tilted backwards to stop water running down your face and onto your eyebrows. During the first two days after treatment you will need to keep your fringe away from your eyebrows to avoid risking infection.
