MICROBLADING

 

MICROBLADING 101

BEST FOR NORMAL SKIN TYPES

[AKA Eyebrow Embroidery, PMU, semi-permanent brows ]

Microblading is a semi-permanent technique of cosmetic tattooing that will provide low maintenance and natural brows in a shape that enhances the individual’s unique face.

A handheld tool with ultra-fine needles is used during the treatment to create a channel by which to deposit cosmetic pigments in the upper dermis of the skin. The use of various sizes, arrangements and flexibility of needles enables the artist to fully tailor the brow hairs to camouflage partial or complete hair loss. At BlushBrow the eyebrow shape, colour and texture are customised to each client to create realistic results.

HYBRID NANOBLADING

SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES

​Hybrid nanoblading is achieved by using a manual microblade followed by a second pass with the digital machine. This combines the benefits of for clean, crips hairstrokes of microblading with the outstanding color retention of machine nano brows. The main advantages of this method with is the reduction of trauma to the skin and the ability for skin types typically unsuitable (oily/porous) to microblading to achieve strong results. 

 
 

BLUSHBROW AESTHETIC

BlushBrow's signature look builds volume, density and texture for the coveted natural fluffy brow look. This look can be further enhanced at the studio with Brow Lamination: LED treatment.

​Using the microblade, hair like strokes angled to mimic the natural hair growth are used to create fuller brows that seamlessly blend with existing hairs. At BlushBrow the eyebrow shape, colour and texture are customised to create hyper-realistic results whilst taking into account your personal aesthetic preferences and personality.  

​Manual shading can then used to further define the brow by adding volume and thickness using a handheld tool or the a digital machine.

COMBINATION BROWS

This treatment is ideal if the client is undecided between ombre shading and hairstroke brows, provided the best of both techniques. At BlushBrow there are many variations of combination which are tailored to the individual based on their desired look. The initial hair strokes are added first using a microblade then the digital machine can be used to add different thickness of strokes and shading. These hair like stokes can be used through the entire brow, with shading in between; at the front of the brow with a shaded body and tail etc.

This technique is ideal for those with very little to no natural hair as a number of techniques can be applied to provide contrast with the fluffy texture of microblading and fullness created by the machine for a realistic looking brow.

 
 

THE PROCESS

THE PROCESS

​Typically takes 3 to 4 hours, depending upon the desired fullness and how much natural hair the client has. The healing duration is often shorter than microblading.

I recommend having a tint/wax one week prior or on day of patch test as this will tidy your brows ready for the Nano Brows.

​The Micropigmentation is a four-part process completed over two sessions.

APPOINTMENT 1:

The initial session will begin with a consultation in order to establish the clients preferred aesthetic as well as determining the individual’s facial expressions in order to map out the ideal brows.

 

A brow mapping technique using golden ratio proportions that measure the distance between all points of the client’s upper face is used, whilst also trying to preserve as much of the natural brow hair as possible. In doing so a symmetrical and flattering brow, proportional to the individual’s face, is achieved.

 

Excess hairs are then removed and maintained using various techniques such as threading, tweezing and trimming the hairs.

 

The digital machine is then used to replicate hair strokes/powder brows within the second layer of the skin.

 

APPOINTMENT 2:

The retouch appointment is typically required in order to add any pigment that did not ‘hold’ during the healing process. This session typically takes 15-60 minutes and must be carried out 6 – 12 weeks of the initial appointment so as not to incur an additional fee.
