The Microblade method:
Microblading is a form of cosmetic tattoo/permanent make up (PMU). The term ‘microblading’ refers to the tool that is used – a pen like, hand held device with a number of tiny needles positioned together to form a ‘blade’. The Microblade is used to break (or 'scratch') the skin and implant pigment. No machine is used for this this method. Rachel uses this method to create individual hairstrokes giving a natural effect and helping to fill gaps. Please note that microblading is not suitable for all skin types – results are best on healthy and younger skin. Oily/porous/mature/thin skin is usually more suited to the machine method.
The Machine method:
Rachel uses the machine method to create a 'powder' effect, whether that be soft or bold or something in-between. It is performed more like a traditional tattoo, using a machine with a vibrating needle(s) to implant the pigment. It is actually a more gentle method of PMU and good for delicate/mature skin. It is also a better option for oily skin. A natural effect can be achieved and can look similar to brow pencil/powder or a brow tint and
Both methods are types of permanent make up (PMU). However results do fade over time and this depends on each individual’s skin and lifestyle factors. Top ups are required every 9-18 months to keep the colour fresh.
Rachel spends time with each individual to create brows that are bespoke to you. No two sets of brows are the same.
Results are always dependent on each individual’s skin, lifestyle factors and following the correct after care.
In most cases a 6 week top up after the initial treatment is required to ensure the best possible results. This is included in the price of the initial treatment.
