Microblading is the manual method of implanting pigment into the skin. It can achieve natural looking hair strokes, shading effects and ombre. This technique is used on the brows. Not everyone is suitable for microblading such as oilier skin types as the pigment may not retain as well as it does with semi permanent make-up.
SEMI PERMANENT MAKEUP (SPMU)
Semi permanent make up is the method of implanting pigment into the skin via a machine. It is a tattoo and suitable for those who have had previous treatments or aren't suitable for microblading. Areas covered are brows, lips and eyeliner. It can achieve hair strokes, powder effects, blush & ombre.

PRE TREATMENT ADVICE
You must discontinue Retin A or Retinals 7 days before the treatment. Avoid Retinol around the tattooed area for at least 14 days after the treatment as can cause the pigment to fade.
After the treatment, you will not be able to wash your hair for 5 days so it is a good idea to wash your hair on the day of the appointment or the day before.
Refrain from drinking alcohol, medication containing aspirin, ibuprofen, vitamin E, or other blood thinning medications for 2 to 3 days before the treatment. However, medication should not be discontinued without consulting your doctor first.
Botox should be carried out 2 weeks before or two weeks after.
Any hair removal such as tweezing or waxing to be done at least 2 days prior.
Electrolysis or I.P.L. should be carried out at least 2 weeks prior to the treatment.
Do not resume any method of hair removal for a period of at least 2 weeks.
Eyebrow tinting to be done at least 2 weeks prior and should not resume tinting until 2 weeks after the procedure.
Please make sure you have had a patch test at least 24hrs prior to treatment.
Please wax or thread your eyebrows a minimum of 72 hours before your appointment.
AFTER CARE ADVICE
Avoid any procedures that may affect the healing process. These include:
Exposure to UV - will enhance fading, and cause skin irritation or burning
Avoid Heat treatments - saunas etc. as these may cause burning or irritation / Swimming - due to chlorine, and chance of infection from open wound
Chemical/perfumed products on area - will draw ink out or increase irritation in the open wound
Exfoliation products, or scratching scabbed are - will re-open healing wound, and remove ink from the area, leaving fade or uneven results.
Avoid blood donation for 6 months due to healing process, and potential contamination of blood during treatment.
Blot the clear lymph fluid to avoid too much scabbing.
Brows- Dry heal brows by blotting and cleaning lymph fluid and waiting until scabbing occurs before applying Vitamin A & D Cream.
For lips and eyes you will need to ensure you are applying after care lotion to the area a minimum of 3 times a day to prevent infection and promote healing. This must be an approved aftercare cream-not a body lotion as these have chemicals that may cause ink to fade, or result in reaction.
Eyeliner- use a new mascara wand and use Optrex anti-inflammatory eye drops
Clients should continue to check for contra-actions and inform the artist immediately if any occur after leaving the salon.
Do not pick the scabs as the pigment will lift & there is risk of infection.
The healing process will result in the pigment seeming to fade completely as the skin renews. Don’t panic, the pigment will be pushed towards the surface again.
Clients will need to be prepared for a top up treatment between 4 and 6 weeks after initial treatment. 30-40% of colour may be lost after the first treatment, and a top up is essential.
