Everything You Need To Know About Eyebrow Microblading

It’s one of the biggest beauty trends at the moment (and not just in London!) and shows no signs of going away: microblading. But, what’s it all about, is it worth doing and what can you expect from the treatment? We tell all in today’s blog post. 

Microblading in a nutshell

First, let’s talk about what the treatment actually is. Microblading, as the name suggests, involves tiny little blades to deliver pigment to the skin and create the illusion of hairs. It’s all done with a clever tool no bigger than a pen – and though it might sound painful, some people actually find the procedure fairly relaxing, especially because we can use numbing agents to ease any discomfort during the treatment. 

How it’s done

The device is passed over the skin gently to create tiny strokes. Like with many of our semi-permanent makeup treatments, a pigment is used to add definition and mimic natural eyebrow hair. It’s one of the reasons it’s often called an eyebrow tattoo. When you have treatment, we’ll choose a pigment and test it on your skin in advance, to ensure it looks natural and won’t cause any adverse reactions. 

Reasons for treatment 

Microblading is all about creating that perfect brow shape – not just in terms of what’s trendy, but what suits your unique face and harmonises with your features. It might also be that you have thin, fine or no hair in the treated area, so microblading in London can create the illusion of beautiful, shaped hairs and give your face balance and expression.
