Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow treatment, which is carried out with a 9, 12, or 14 needle blade.  Small cuts are made to push the pigment into the skin.  The procedure takes around 2½ hours, which includes numbing the area, drawing up the shape and microblading itself.  After the procedure eyebrows take 7 - 10 days to heal, and after 4 - 6 weeks a second treatment is done to ensure pigment doesn’t come out.  Microblading lasts 12 - 18 months depending on age and skin type.

We offer 3 different types of Microblading:

  • Hairstroke £180 (including 6 week top up)

  • Powder Brows £250 (including 6 week top up)

  • Combination Brows £250 (including 6 week top up)

Procedure for booking


  • Every client MUST be patch tested at least 48 hours prior to their treatment.  

  • When attending the patch test, our staff will discuss the treatment in detail and answer any questions you may have. 

  • A non-refundable £50 deposit at the patch test must be paid and then a booking can be made.

How long does the treatment take?

It varies from person to person but we allow around 2½ hours for the first treatment, and around 1½ hours for top-ups.


How long do effects last?
Generally, semi-permanent or tattooed makeup lasts up to 12 months with a top-up.  Without a top-up, 2-3 months can be expected. Top-ups can be done to maintain the look for as long as you wish.

How long is the recovery or healing time?
You do not have to hide from the world until you are healed.  Many clients can walk right out the door, ready to show off their new brows.  Initially stronger in colour, your new brows will soften to a natural looking and beautiful colour in two to three weeks.


When will I see the final results?
A noticeable difference will be readily apparent immediately following the microblading procedure.  You will see your final results after the healing process is fully completed, usually in two to three weeks.


What if I don’t like it?
Although the procedure is considered semi-permanent, these procedures do have flexibility in changing colour and shape to some extent.  Colours will appear much darker immediately following the procedure but will often soften and lighten during the healing process. The healing time is also different for each individual and remember it takes time to adjust to a new look.

Pre-Treatment Requirements

  • Please wear your normal make-up to the salon on the day of the appointment.

  • The treatment will only go ahead with the outcome of a negative patch test.

  • Alcohol, Aspirin, Ibuprofen or Warfarin (blood thinning medication) must be avoided at least 48 hours prior to the procedure.  However, DO NOT discontinue any medication before consulting your doctor.

  • You will not be able to have this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

  • Any waxing should be performed at least 48 hours before the procedure (electrolysis no less than 5 days before procedure).

  • Any AHA, peels, laser or any other resurfacing treatments in the area to be treated must be carried out at least 4 weeks before treatment.

  • Since delicate skin or sensitive areas may be swollen or red, it is advised not to make social plans for the same day.

Aftercare Advice and What To Expect

For 2-5 days after the treatment, the procedure area may experience the following symptoms:

  • Flaking

  • Tenderness

  • Dryness and itching

  • Swelling

  • Redness


For at least 7 days after the procedure or until the area has healed, include the following in your daily routine:

  • Apply the suggested moisturising balm to the area at least 3 times a day using a cotton bud (wash hands before and after application and use a clean cotton bud each time to avoid infection).

  • Use a gentle face cleanser and avoid the treatment area.

  • If the area does get wet, pat dry very gently with a clean towel or tissue.

  • Do not expose the area to extreme heat or extreme cold until healed.  This includes sunbathing.

  • Do not use make-up for 7 days in treatment area

  • Do not itch, pick, scratch or rub the area or the colour will heal unevenly or cause scarring and infection.


General post procedure information

  • To avoid pigment fade for as long as possible, avoid excessive exposure to the sun or UV rays and use a good sunscreen or moisturiser with an SPF30.

  • If you are planning an MRI scan, chemical peel or any other similar procedures, please inform your practitioner that you have had permanent cosmetics.

  • You will not be eligible to give blood for 6 months after your procedure.  Please inform the National Blood Service of your procedure and date if you want to give blood.

  • If you are planning injections such as Botox and Collagen remember it can alter the shape of your eyebrows.

  • Laser hair removal can fade and change the shade of your lips or brow procedures, always advise the laser technician you are wearing permanent cosmetics and they can act accordingly.

  • Swelling differs with each individual. To eliminate the swelling you can place ice on the treated areas every hour for about 10 minutes. Make sure you are rolling the ice – do not leave in one area.

  • An additional pillow is advisable when sleeping for the first evening.

  • Your eyebrows need to be gently blotted to remove excess body fluids to eliminate crusting.

  • Make sure you wash your hair with your head tilted backwards to stop water running down you face.

  • Do not try to hide your eyebrows with your fringe in the first 2 days - this is the easiest way to cause infection.  Keep your fringe away from your eyebrows.

  • Permanent cosmetic procedures will normally require multiple treatment sessions.  For best results clients will be required to have at least one top-up procedure a maximum of 6 weeks after the initial procedure.

  • Be prepared for the colour to be significantly darker immediately after the procedure. This will subside and become lighter as the tissue heals. This process can take up to ten days.
