What is Microblading?
Microblading is the name given to a treatment that involves the creation of fine, crisp, hair-like strokes that mimic the appearance of natural brow hairs using specialist tools and techniques. The tool used to carry out this treatment is called a microblade. This method relies heavily on the pressure, depth and stretch during the insertion of fine micro-needles.
This semi-permanent technique is a form of cosmetic tattooing. The use of a fine microblade is used to create hair-like strokes by implanting pigment into the basal layer of the dermis (the second of layer skin). At Manderville Aesthetics we use our very own ultra-fine, sterile, disposable microblades to ensure the health & Safety of each of our clients.
What can affect the results of microblading?
How we ensure your safety
Pre and post treatment advice must be followed in order to achieve the best results. Advice should be followed before and after both initial appointment and touch up (4-6) weeks later.
Your skin quality/condition is an important consideration and will be discussed at your consultation to ensure that microblading is a suitable treatment.
Skin type will be discussed and accessed at your consultation prior to treatment. You will submit a questionnaire that will help determine your skin type.
Life-style factors that affect healing include:
Sun exposure – If you frequently sunbath or use sunbeds your skins ability to retain pigment will be poorer. Excessive shedding and peeling will encourage fading much quicker, an alternative treatment like powder brow/ ombre brows would be more suitable for this lifestyle.
Use of Retinol and AHA Skin care
As specialists we can advise you on whether or not you are suitable during your consultation, which lasts approximately 30 minutes. We offer a range of brow treatments, so if microblading is not suitable, we’ll let you know what would work best for your skin type.
Following all the advice given will help to achieve the best results.
We use sterile, disposable, medical grade quality micro-blades. Our blades are single use, disposable and designed by us. Every client gets a brand new blade, opened in front of you, every time they visit. We also adhere to industry standards regarding cleaning and sanitising.
Patch Testing - We patch test you before your treatment to make sure you don't have a reaction.
