Giving eyebrows that are fuller than normal, as well as more defined and an enhanced look is what this new beauty technique known as Microblading is all about.
An eyebrow that looks more shaped and fuller, though fake, is achieved by scratching and implanting pigments by a group of ten to twelve-minute needles through this special technique.
Being longer-lasting and less invasive, than the tattooing of the eyebrow, this procedure will enhance the beauty eyebrow look, is the main difference.
Gone are the days of hours spent trying the semi-permanent way of doing your daily eyebrow care of pencilling in the shape and filler but never getting it right all the time.
None of the semi-permanent solutions can stand up to the longer-lasting and beauty enhancing capabilities of this procedure, so if you are looking for a Microblading salon in the Nottingham area, you have just found the right place to find out more.
The reason it works so well is that it retains the natural eyebrow look while enhancing its beauty once-off and not a daily treatment regime.
Being a mere sensation with no pain as an ointment, that acts as a local anaesthetic during the procedure, prevents any stress your eyebrows might take which can affect the outcome.
The procedure will only take up about two hours of your time, which of that time only fifty minutes is spent numb and painless with a gradual increase of feeling coming back to the area.
Known in the UK as eyebrow embroidery, the benefits of this microblading procedure can be easily undone in your own home by using a saline or salt solution as the added pigmentation does not spur any skin discolouring or leave any scarring behind.
The primary clientele for this treatment is the modern UK women and is causing a major increase in interest in having it done daily.
AFTERCARE FOR YOUR NOTTINGHAM MICROBLADING:
Just like the tattooing of the eyebrow procedure, this procedure also has an aftercare regime and the main and most important one is no scratching or picking on the treated area, no matter how irritating the sensation might be and the scratches heals, just ignore that irritation.
Though it might look like it is fading, do not panic just stick to the rules of the aftercare and you will notice the colour return within thirty days and after that healing, any gaps in the treated area can be sorted out in a top-up session after six to eight weeks after the treatment.
HOW DOES MICROBLADING WORK?
Creating the perfect eyebrow shape and look by architecturally producing a result that is a total bespoke manner is the main aim of this procedure.
Like a nib of a pencil drawing on paper, the hand-held device that is shaped like a pen with a nib of ten to twelve-minute needles that delicately scratch and implants pigments without penetrating the skin.
And once again just like your tattooing procedure, your design and shape gets worked out before the treatments start, so once you go ahead all the work follows that design by creating realistic fine hair strokes on the eyebrow but without the deep penetration of the skin and the thin needles as to what is used in tattooing.
This procedure only affects the top epidermis and unlike tattooing will leave more realistic and natural-looking hair strokes.
You might be sensitive or get an allergic reaction to the pigmentation so always do a scratch test on a small patch of skin somewhere hidden under your clothing as this will let you know if you allergy-free of the specific pigment they going to use.
HOW IS THIS PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
The eyebrow area to be treated will be cleaned to be sterile and the hair gets threaded.
They then apply the numbing ointment and while settles in and slowly starts to numb the area, this is when you sit down to sort out the colour and shape of the design you want and have the area measured to see how it will look as far as symmetry, shape, and features will affect the design and outcome.
Once your design is done and the ointment numbed your treatment area the actual work starts by the use of the needles (known as the needling process).
While implanting the pigments with feather-light strokes, and with each stroke, a fine but superficial line is created as the pigments settle down.
Once you have completed the process you wait for five minutes then remove it and you will see your newly designed eyebrows.
After six to eight weeks you return to the salon to have a bit of fine-tuning with more pigments in what is known as the top-up session.
HOW LONG DOES THE RESULTING DESIGN LAST?
As this treatment might last for a period of one to three years the average time for the best look is at about 18 months when you can always go back and repeat the process and keep doing this every 18 months so you can have an uninterrupted look that lasts very long.
Your type of skin will also affect the time or period that you must repeat the procedure, as clients with oily skin must repeat after 12 months as the skin will lose that effect of the treatment quicker than drier skin.
WHAT SHOULD YOU AVOID BEFORE YOUR TREATMENT?
Three days before treatment you should have no waxing or tinting of the eyebrows.
In the week that precedes your treatment stay away from any electrolysis, waxes, tweezing, or picking of the area to be treated as well as any fish oils and or Vitamin E.
In the two weeks before treatment, you must avoid direct sunlight and or sunbeds as well as any facial peeling.
In the month that precedes your treatment, none of the following should be taken or used:
VITAMIN A RICH PRODUCTS
WHAT YOU SHOULD AVOID ON THE TREATMENT DAY?
NO COFFEE IN THE TWO HRS PRIOR
ANY ASPIRIN OR IBUPROFEN MEDICATION 24 HOURS PRIOR
NO ALCOHOL IN THE 24 TO 48 HOURS PRIOR
WHAT SHOULD BE AVOIDED AFTER THE FIRST WEEK?
*No skincare products or makeup on the treated area until it has healed
*Do not face directly into the sun or any exercise for 1 week
*No swimming or long steamy showers for ten days
*Stay clear of any Peeling or Botoxing for 4 weeks
The use of this technique will give you a well-designed and look of the eyebrow from shaping to filling up by the scratch and pigment implanting process.
It is a quick procedure and you can return home after 2 hours.
It is catching on with an ever-increasing amount of UK women as it removes the daily grooming time having to be spent to get it just right as the treatment last for up to 18 months when you can go back for touch-ups to have the everlasting uninterrupted look.
The procedure is painless as per the use of numbing ointment with minimal or no side effects with a natural look.
All this gives this treatment a potentially highly favoured beauty treatment especially if compared to other beauty care services, none will come closer as it is more cost-effective.
