Ok, let’s start from the beginning. Sadly, Permanent makeup isn’t a new concept as it’s been used all over the world for quite some time. People have been using different methods to decorate themselves for centuries such as the ancient Egyptians. Modern-day permanent makeup is a spinoff from tattoo ink which has been a massive part of many cultures.
And then….just like that the permanent makeup industry was born. Permanent makeup ink has been tested repeatedly, perfecting them along the way. Now we have hypo-allergenic safe pigments in a wide range of colours and shades that can be mixed and matched to create personalised products for clients. We are spoiled with different colours, shades and different techniques to suit different desires.
Microblading took the industry by storm the past 4 years. It’s a permanent makeup brow performed with a hand held blade using scratching movements. This allows the artist to create fine hair strokes that mimic natural eyebrow hairs. Microblading is definitely our most popular treatment at Inside Aesthetics. India has perfected her technique to deal with every skin type, shaped brow, thickness of brow hair or no brow at all. Microblading is perfect for clients looking for a natural result. However, certain skin tones and types are not ideal for this technique and will not yield good retention and overall results. All of the below skin conditions are NOT good candidates for microblading:
This leads us to Ombre Brows. This fairly new trend in the PMU industry is performed with a machine and very fine needles that implant pigment in the skin with brushing movements. Then layer by layer you build colour. Ombre gives you more options to work on different skin types and to correct some previously done permanent makeup. This technique can be combined with microblading for clients’ wanting bespoke brows.
Which technique is less painful?
Whatever technique you decide to go for, we will make it as comfortable as possible. Client’s do not find the treatment painful because the treated area is numbed before the process and during. The pain is a similar discomfort to plucking your eyebrows.
What about the healing process?
The healing process is quite similar with both treatments – it takes about 1-2 weeks for the redness to disappear and the scabs to fall off. At Inside Aesthetics your 6 week top up treatment is included in your initial price. This is to ensure the pigment, colour and shape is perfected.
There are some aftercare rules to follow after the treatment to ensure the longevity of the brows. After your initial treatment your brows will appear to be too dark, and they will start to scab. Unlike microblading that scabs in patches, ombre brows scab in one big (or a few big) pieces. It is important not to touch them and to follow the tips given by India in order to get the best results.
If you are looking for some advice on the different techniques, we offer in clinic or Facetime complimentary consultations. This allows you to discuss all your questions before the treatment. To book a consultation or treatment, please contact the clinic on: 01233 556622 or email@example.com.
