Eyebrow Microblading...All You Need To Know!

"The idea of not having to pencil in the thin and measly ends of my eyebrows every day sounded very appealing indeed!"

I wanted to wait a little while before writing this post so I could give you a full review of my experience with eyebrow microblading from start to finish.

As someone who doesn't like to fuss and faff with my makeup as much as I used to (gone are the days I used to spend thirty minutes just applying eyeshadow!!!) the idea of not having to pencil in the thin and measly ends of my eyebrows everyday sounded very appealing indeed!

I went to have mine done at The Contour Clinic  and I have to say from the moment I walked through the door I knew I was in good hands! The Contour Clinic offers a range of services and the clinic is very aesthetically pleasing, clean, calming and very professional. You are made to feel welcome as soon as you arrive and Jade, who owns the clinic, is an expert when it comes to microblading and even runs her own training academy of which there are only three in the whole of the UK! (details on the website linked above)

So let's get down to the good stuff shall we?

"Mapping out the shape..."

After popping on some numbing cream, Jade and I had a chat about my brows and what I liked in terms of shape etc then she got to work mapping out my 'new brows' so we could get an idea of what they would look like before the microblading.  I really liked that she took the time to do this.  I felt really relaxed and that I knew the end results were going to be good before we even started!

We were then ready to begin....

Does it hurt?

I posted on my Instagram account when I had this treatment done and I received so many questions about it hurting that I just wanted to address this in more detail for those who might still be a bit apprehensive.

A someone who is terrified of needles (and I mean petrified!!) I have to admit I was a tad nervous about this procedure.  I needn't have been worried at all.  The numbing cream certainly helps but even as it wore off a little towards the end the microblading did not hurt one bit.  It's a strange sensation granted, and one that's quite difficult to describe, but not an unpleasant one at all!

The whole process took about an hour and fifteen minutes in total and I was so so pleased with the results! My brows are now thicker and fuller without looking unnatural, I love them!

Taking care....

It is really important that you follow the instructions you receive after the treatment to ensure the eyebrows remain how they should.  Jade has sworn me to secrecy about the product that works a dream at keeping the area protected so it heals properly and keeps the pigment intact, but you'll have to book in to see her if you want to know what that is! It really works though!

The brows will look quite dark at first but the colour will fade a little as they begin to heal and then seem to darken again. 

Topping up....

After 6 - 8 weeks you will need to book in for a top-up.  Mine still looked great at this point, but I could definitely see the extra difference the top-up made a few weeks on and I wouldn't recommend skipping this step. 

How long does it last?

This does vary from person to person, anything from one to three years depending on your skin type and it is advisable not to use any retinol products or acids in that area because it could affect the pigment under your skin. 

So to conclude, this was a really great experience and one which I'm glad I had done. It's so nice to be able to go sans-makeup but still have a face that doesn't look like half of my eyebrows have disappeared and it is amazing how much that small difference makes! Not to mention time-saving! 

I'd definitely recommend it to anyone and especially having this treatment done at The Contour Clinic.  I've popped all the details below for you.
