Microblading Information sheet

 Where are you based?

The address is: Woodlawn, Beacon Hill Road, Hindhead, Surrey, GU26 6QB.

How much does Microblading cost?

It costs £450, which includes your treatment session and a review session (to be used within 3 months of your initial treatment session), where any adjustments are made, if needed. My clients Top-up’s are charged at £150 per session as long as it’s no later 2 years after your last session, otherwise the treatment will be charged at the full price. A deposit of £50 is needed to secure any appointment, which is then deducted from the remaining balance of your treatment fee. I don’t take cards, so unless you’re paying by cash on the day, please arrange a bank transfer, which must reach me before your treatment can go ahead. BACS details are at the bottom of the page (Prices correct are time of printing).

Is there a consultation fee?

The consultation fee is £50 and is taken off your treatment fee, should you decide to go ahead. During a consultation, I do the patch test and discuss your brow situation, possibly drawing on brows. This is a half hour appointment and must be secured with the consultation fee. If for any reason I feel that you’re not a suitable candidate for treatment, I will refund your consultation fee.

How long does the procedure take?

The consultation is half an hour, the initial treatment session is 2 hours and the review session is between half an hour and an hour and a half, depending on whether or not anything needs doing?

I’ve heard that oily skin is a contraindication for Microblading?

If you have very oily skin, large pores, Rosacea, or dilated capillaries (a strong redness to areas of your skin, which is formed of small, possibly broken blood vessels), then there is a strong possibility that the hair strokes will not retain their definition once healed and the effect will be more of a powder brow look and in some cases the pigment will heal to a very cool tone.

I have very dark hair and have heard that over time the pigment can heal grey?

If you require a very dark pigment implanting, then there is a small chance of the pigment healing very cool and in some cases, once faded, there can be a greyish hue to the brows. This is rare, but the possibility is something to be aware of. Also, with very dark shades, or if you want the strokes to be very closely packed, there is a stronger chance of the strokes blurring and over time, this will lead to more of a “powder brow” effect.

How long does it last?

The result usually lasts between 8-18 months, depending on skin type and depth of colour, but the result can last longer (see answer to next question for more information on this). A Top-Up is advised at regular intervals to freshen up your brows.

If I decide to stop having Microblading treatment, over time will the tattoo completely disappear?

You may always have a trace of the tattoo if you stop having treatments. With darker pigments it can take several years to lose the colour and in some cases the client may never completely lose the tattoo. This is normally associated with a very dark shade being used, so something to be aware of before you decide to go ahead with treatment.

Do I need to come for a consultation/patch test?

 It is essential to have a patch test and this can be sent in the post if you feel you don’t require a consultation. Treatment cannot take place for at least 2 hours after performing the test.

What if I need to cancel my appointment?

You must cancel at least 48 hours before your appointment date, or you will lose you’re £50 deposit. I will reschedule your appointment and keep the deposit until you come in for the new appointment date, then it will be deducted from your remaining balance.

How long does it take to heal and is there scabbing?

It takes about a week to heal and there should be little or no scabbing, if you stick to the aftercare regime. There is still a chance that you may develop a scabbing, depending on the individual.

Can I wash my hair after treatment?

Yes, you can wash your hair. Splashing your brows isn’t a problem as long as you pat them dry with a clean dry flannel as soon as possible. A handheld shower head is a good way of protecting your brows especially if you’re able to tip your head back whilst washing your hair.

Will my brows be red and swollen after treatment?

You should have no redness or swelling when you leave me. All my photos are directly after the procedure, so you can go straight out feeling great!

Can I do exercise immediately after the treatment?

Exercise is fine following treatment, however, no swimming, saunas, steam rooms etc, until your brows have healed.

When can I go in the sun after treatment?

You can go in the sun 10 days after Microblading, as long as you wear a strong, Zinc free sun block. The UV rays will fade a tattoo very quickly if you don’t follow this advice!  Microblading should be done no sooner than 2 weeks after sun exposure.

Can I have Botox just before, or after treatment?

You must wait for 2 weeks after having Botox before you can be treated and must wait for at least 2 weeks after treatment before your next Botox session.

Can I have my brows tinted before treatment?

You should have your brows tinted either 1 week before treatment, or 2 weeks after treatment.

I have old brow tattooing. Can I have Microblading over the top?

As long as the old tattooing is significantly faded down enough, yes you can. If in doubt, send me a photo and I should be able to tell from that. You must be aware however, that I cannot completely conceal old tattooing, so you will be able to see the residual tone of the faded tattoo underneath my work.

Is it painful?

I put on a good numbing cream before your treatment, so you shouldn’t feel much discomfort at all.

Will it be very dark until healed?

Microblading is a lovely, natural looking treatment and you should be able to leave my clinic without any redness or swelling. No need to hide away! You will look great immediately.

I have very sparse eyebrow hair, will Microblading work for me?

It doesn’t matter if you have no brow hair, very sparse hair, or quite a lot of hair, Microblading is good for all brow conditions.

Is this treatment for all ethnicities and skin and hair tones?

Yes, I have pigment shades to suit all.

Can I have the treatment if I’m pregnant, or breastfeeding?

No, you must wait until after the baby is born and breastfeeding has finished.

Can I have the treatment if I’m undergoing Chemo?

You have to be at least 5 weeks prior to undergoing chemotherapy and at least 5 weeks post chemotherapy. If you wish me to treat you within the stipulated 5 week period, then written consent from your oncologist will be required.

I have a health condition. Can I have this treatment done?

If you have a health condition and/or are taking medication, this must be discussed with me directly, before we can proceed, to make sure there are no contraindications.

I’m under 18 years old. Can I have the treatment?

In some circumstances, this can be done, as long as there is consent from a parent or guardian, plus written permission from your doctor and that my insurance company is happy for us to proceed.

I’m in my 70’s. Can I have this done?

As long as you’re healthy and depending on your skin texture, you can have this treatment at any age. However,  I strongly advise a face to face consultation if you’re over the age of 80, as there is the chance that I may have to refuse treatment on the day if I consider, for whatever reason, that it’s not in your best interests to have Microblading performed.

 

 

*Please be aware that over time and after several top-up’s, the strokes may soften and not look as crisp as when first applied to virgin skin.

Is it painful?

 I put on a good numbing cream before your treatment, so you shouldn’t feel much discomfort at all (read further down for more info on this). It’s a strange sensation, as you will feel the vibration of the needle on your eyelid and I have to put some pressure on the skin around your eye. It’s a very quick procedure as long as you stay nicely still and trust me.

Will it be very dark until healed?

Yes, it’s possible to treat you, as long as you take prescribed oral antiviral medication for at least 5 days before the procedure and a week post the procedure. This is not a guarantee however, that you will not develop a cold sore and that this could result in a loss of pigment in the area.

Will it be very dark until healed?

The colour can start off very strong, depending g on the desired effect, like wearing a lipstick, but will soften a lot during healing, creating more on a tint.

Is this treatment for all ethnicities and skin and hair tones?

Not always. For instance, if you are dark skinned and have a dark vermilion border to your lips and a pinkish colour on other areas of your lips, it can create a very noticeable difference in colour once healed, creating a patchy 2 toned effect. I can assess your suitability during the consultation, or with a good, makeup free photo.

No, you must wait until after the baby is born and breastfeeding has finished.

Micropigmentation

How would you describe Micropigmentation to someone who had never heard of it?

Micropigmentation, or Semi Permanent Makeup, is a tattoo process that delivers pigment into the epidermal layers and the first "Reticular" dermal layer of the skin, using a small blade, or a very fine configuration of needles. The treatment is semi permanent, as we all shed our epidermal skin layers, leaving a faint trace of pigment in the reticular dermal layer. We shed our epidermal layers at different rates, depending on age, skin type and the depth of colour of pigment etc, so fading of colour varies from person to person. The colour of the tattooed area may seem darker than expected until healed, which is about 7-10 days, as the colour fades a little during healing. Microblading by about approx 10-20%, Lips by approx 50% and Liner by approx 20-30%, leaving a lovely, soft, natural result.

Who can it benefit?

Many people can benefit from Semi Permanent Makeup, for instance, lots of women have over plucked there brows, leaving very sparse hair, and sometimes, no hair at all. I can create a very natural look no matter what hair I have left to work with. Eyeliner can add great definition, and create the illusion of much thicker eyelashes, it can be a subtle look, or something a little more dramatic. Lip shape and colour can be improved. If you are a very active person, who likes the gym, or swimming and you don't want to have to bother with makeup, it’s perfect! If you suffer with conditions such as Parkinson's Desease, or have had a stroke and really find applying makeup a chore, this is the perfect solution. 

Where did it come from?

Semi Permanent Makeup goes back hundreds, if not thousands of years and has routes in China, Japan and the Middle East.

What advice would you give people interested in getting it?

The best advice I can give to somebody considering Semi Permanent Makeup, is to really do your homework when looking for a practitioner. I suggest making sure that the practitioner is fully certified and licensed. If the price seems too good to be true, then beware. Hygiene and skill is of the utmost importance, also recommendation from a friend is always a good idea. A patch test and consultation should always be offered.

How long does the tattoo last?

The result usually lasts between 8-18 months, depending on skin type and depth of colour, but the result can last longer (see answer to next question for more information on this). A Top-Up is advised at regular intervals to freshen up your brows.

How long does the process take?

The length of each treatment session varies, depending on what you’re having done. An initial Microblading session is approximately 2 hours, including numbing time, drawing on and form filling. An Eyeliner session is between 1-2 hours. Lips can take as much as 2 and a half hours. These session times are extended of course if you’re having a combination of treatments. 

Are there any side effects?

I offer a Consultation and Patch Test for a fee of £50, which will be then be deducted from your treatment fee, should you decide to go ahead with the procedure. This  should minimise the risk of an allergic reaction and if you follow all the after-care instructions during the initial healing period, there should be no side effects.

When can I wear make-up again?

When your tattoo has completely healed, which is normally after about a week.

How much does it cost?

Please see the “Prices” Page.
