Experience the Personal Touch at Beautiful You

Microblading or Eyebrow Embroidery

At Beautiful You we offer the very latest in semi-permanent make-up which has been around for years, Cleopatra is accepted to have had cosmetic tattooing. The art of tattooing done by hand is an old Japanese craft though Microblading is relatively new in the Western world; the natural finish, which is created by this method, is proving increasingly popular as it does not go as deep as traditional tattooed eyebrows meaning they last up to 2 years and then over time fade naturally with no scarring.

A brief explanation “Microblading is a form of semi permanent makeup and is performed by manually depositing pigment in the basal layer of the epidermis. It does not involve the use of a machine; the technique involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that are more natural looking than tattooing, brow pencils or powders. The blade glides with gentle pressure over the skin and causes fine cuts. The cuts are as fine as a paper cut giving a natural eyebrow look”.

Before being accepted for this treatment we must check that you do not have any medical conditions that would prevent the treatment going ahead, and Doctors permission maybe required before proceeding. A patch test will be carried out to ensure that you are not allergic to the products used.

For your comfort a numbing cream & solution will be used to limit discomfort and following the treatment we advise you use an ointment that we sell at £20 per pot that is antimicrobial, that will also speed up the healing process and protect the colour”. Our therapist Julie Nixon is licensed: insured and trained to level 4 VTCT.

The process takes 2 hours, during that time a consultation form will be completed, numbing cream applied, colour and shape agreed with the client, eyebrows measured, drawn on and sign off by the client on the shape before the blading begins. You will need to return 4 – 6 weeks later for a top up, as the brows will fade during the first healing process. The brow will last up to 2 years.
