Microblading falls under the semi permanent makeup and cosmetic tattooing spectrum, and is a procedure carried out to enhance or restore a persons eyebrows, mimicking realistic hair strokes for a super natural look. It helps to improve or create eyebrow definition, cover gaps of lost hair, extend the eyebrows, or fully reconstruct the brows where they have little/no hair. Sparse or missing brows can be completely restored.
Microblading originated in Asia and uses a manual hand tool, with specially designed sterile microblades, to deposit semi-permanent pigment under the epidermis of the skin. Unlike a machine, using the hand held microblade means the colour is deposited closer to the surface, leaving crisp, thin and realistic hair strokes, creating the most beautiful natural looking brows.
Each stroke is applied individually, allowing control of the shape, colour and density of the brows.
Microblading on average lasts anywhere from 6 months- 1+years. Results vary depending on the persons skin type and biology, including other environmental factors, as such results cannot be guaranteed. Microblading is usually a 2 stage process (see 'top up' info under the price list page). At the 2nd top up/refresh appointment which is carried out approximately 5-6 weeks later, more pigment is implanted into the hairstrokes including any areas which have been lost or lightened during healing.
Barely There Brows are also carried out using a digital machine. They offer a
super soft pixalated powdery finish which is borderless and translucent. These
are perfect for those who are just wanting a slightly shading/colour behind the
brow for some definition and to better frame the face, without anything looking
too bold or dense. They are the perfect introductory brow for those who are a
little hesitant about semi permanent makeup as the density can be increased
should they ever wish to go more bold in the future.
‘Barely There Brows’ tend to last around 1+ years however results vary depending on the persons skin type, biology, medical state and environmental factors. ‘Barely There Brows’ are suitable for ALL skin types, and are usually only a one stage process, being complete after the first session. Although suitable for all skin types, Barely There brows are not always suitable for all brows types. Suitability with be discussed with your technician.
Ombré / Powder Brows
Airbrush Ombré Brows are carried out using a
digital machine and offer a gradual fade in density from a Dense Defined
Baseline up to a soft Borderless Pixel Headline. They are perfect for those
wanting a little more strength over the super natural Microbladed look. These
brows heal with a soft powdery finish which mimics the appearance of makeup,
without any harshness or strong upper borderline. Ombré airbrush creates
seamless stunning brows which remain soft yet defined and take away the need
for the daily application/reapplication of makeup. The density in an ombré brow
can be adapted to the client, from a soft and subtle ombré brow, up to a strong
and dense ombré brow. Powder Brows are similar but don't graduate up to to a soft fade so the density is similar throughout the majority of the brow.
Ombré brows tend to have longer retention over Microblading, usually 1-2 years. Results vary depending on the persons skin type and biology, including other environmental factors. Ombré brows are suitable for ALL skin types unlike Microblading, and are usually a 2 stage process. At the 2nd refresh appointment which is carried out approximately 6 weeks later, more pigment is implanted to any areas requiring more density, or any areas which have been lost or lightened during healing.

Microblading and Semi Permanent Cosmetic Tattooing are the hottest trend in the beauty industry at the moment and this is because it is suitable to so many people for a different variety of reasons:
The list goes on ...
A medical history form will be completed at the initial consultation to determine your suitability for Microblading or Semi Permanent makeup. Some of the above listed reasons do not automatically mean you are unable to have these procedures. Some medical conditions may simply require a note from your GP giving clearance and consent to the procedure taking place. Other conditions which pose risk, may require the client to sign a disclaimer should they still wish to undergo the procedure. Please do not hesitate to message me should you wish to discuss anything.
Please note these procedure cannot be performed on those under the age of 18 even with a consent form.
Due to a lack of medical and scientific research on Microblading and semi permanent cosmetic tattooing during pregnancy (and whilst breast feeding), Ibrowink Boutique are unable to perform these procedures on any person who is pregnant or breast feeding.
For any person currently receiving Chemotherapy, comsetic tattooing is not recommended due to the higher risk of infection and an uncertainty on the way pigment may be affected. These procedures are however possible before Chemotherapy treatment commences and following treatment.
