Can you tell me more about the treatment and what it feels like?
Digital Microblading involves the use of a specially designed cosmetic tattoo machine, which works at a much lower frequency than a general tattoo machine. It has a hand piece into which small needles of varying sizes are attached, depending on the treatment. The needle gently glides across the skin, implanting pigment evenly every time it enters the skins surface. The sensation is often described as feeling like an electric toothbrush being held against the skin.
Does it hurt?
I use anaesthetic cream to numb the area. For most people the treatment is quite painless, and more gentle than you might imagine. If your skin is particularly sensitive, a further application of anaesthetic cream can be applied. The aim is that you feel comfortable throughout the procedure - some clients feel so relaxed that they fall asleep!
How long does it last?
Age, skin type and lifestyle can make a difference. The younger you are, the quicker your skin rejuvenates, so someone in their 20’s would need a top up about once a year. If you are 40+ you probably won’t need a top up for a year to eighteen months.
Lips and eyeliners generally last about 2-3 years
UV exposure will fade the pigments more quickly.
What is the downtime?
The colour will be a little dark to start with, there might be some slight flaking and superficial crusts on the brows which are usually gone within a week. Any swelling or redness will die down within a couple of hours. There is a little more swelling with lips and eyeliners, but this will subside within 24 hours. Because of the above, it might be wise to avoid any special events for a week after treatment.
Is it correct that I will need a second treatment?
Yes. Following your first treatment, please allow four weeks before returning for your top-up procedure. At this time, I can check the colour and shape, making sure the pigment has implanted evenly.
What does the quoted price include?
The price quoted includes your initial treatment and your top up procedure, which you can have between four weeks and up to three months after the first one.
