WHAT PERMANENT MAKEUP
TECHNIQUES DO YOU OFFER?
Currently Aesthetica offers Microblading, Pixelblading and Pixelshading. They are all permanent makeup procedures done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles giving an incredibly natural and realistic look. The treatments can dramatically correct or fully reconstruct eyebrows and is excellent for both those wanting to enhance their brows or who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. Pigments used are chosen to match the natural brow color and skin tone will also be taken into consideration. The choice between Microblading and Pixelblading will be dictated by your skin type as they are both hair stroke manual methods; alternatively, Pixelshading allows us to create beautiful powder brows or to add depth and dimension to any Micro/Pixel-bladed brows.
WHAT'S THE TREATMENT LIKE?
We'll meet first for a consultation, in which we'll talk about the final result we want to achieve and perform an allergy patch test. After that, if there's no reaction we'll proceed with the 2 appointments for the treatment.
The first appointment will be 2/2.5 hrs long and will start with mapping your ideal brows: we’ll work together to decide and draw the perfect shape of eyebrows and choose the perfect colour match, we won’t start the treatment until you’re 100% satisfied. During the “blading” time you may feel a slight discomfort or nothing at all, it really depends on the personal pain threshold.
After the first treatment has healed you’ll come for the top up (around 6 weeks later), when we’ll be able to correct the colour if needed or fill in any areas that didn’t heal too well and this appointment will last around 1.5/2 hrs.
The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and colour will appear darker. This is totally normal, the colour will fade as it heals. In the following days you will notice slight scabbing, do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the treatment. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the top layer of skin to heal over, and about 6 weeks for the colour to fully set in and full healing to be completed. You'll notice the colour will be very light after the first couple of weeks: the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True colour will reveal itself once full healing is achieved, in about
6 weeks: TRUST THE PROCESS.
- Blot away the lymph produced with a water wipe every hour for the first 4-6 hrs. This will avoid a build up of lymph and consequent heavy scabs.
- ONLY ON THE FIRST EVENING give your brows a good wash, being very gentle, and let air dry.
- For 48 hours you should avoid strenuous exercise etc, as this may increase discomfort and swelling.
- Until full healing you should avoid exposure to UV light and heat i.e. sauna, steam, sun beds, very hot showers/baths.
- Do not apply ANY product (skincare/makeup etc.) to the area until all scabs have fallen off.
- If you feel too much itchiness or discomfort, apply a rice grain-size amount of the oil/ointment provided.
- Don't rub, scratch or pick at the scabs until they've all naturally fallen off: removing scabs prematurely would cause unnecessary damage to the skin and remove part of the ink.
HOW LONG DOES EYEBROWS PMU LAST?
The pigments are not implanted at a deep level in the skin, so will naturally fade over a period that varies between 1 and 3 years, although in many cases it won't fade completely. The exact “lifespan” of your microbladed brows will depend on your skin type, age and skin care routine. To maintain your brows looking fresh a top up is suggested every 12-18 months. If you let the pigment naturally fade overtime it may fade completely or there may be a subtle shadow left, again both completely normal outcomes that depend on the individual’s skin.
