Microblading Brows By LC From £250
When you've tried every pencil, powder, pigment, gel, and stencil at Sephora and your brows are still sparse, microblading—a more permanent solution to thin brows—is the last-resort treatment that promises to change your brow life.
Our Girl Lucy tells us here a little about the Microblading......
You need to prepare
If you drink a lot, take aspirin, or use retinol, stop one week before your treatment. "Retinol makes your skin thin and then you bleed a little more, Avoid blood thinners, aspirin, and alcohol."
It doesn't hurt (too much)
Pain is relative. "Some feel more than others. Overall it feels like little scratches. You feel it, but it's not unbearable. It's not like having a baby," I like to prep patients' brows with topical numbing cream and top up throughout the process to dull the discomfort.
Aftercare is essential
That means protecting freshly bladed brows from all moisture–no sweaty workouts or washing your face with water. Some patients experience itching and redness during the first week, which Vaseline can alleviate. Brows will look slightly darker at first, but the color will fade 30 to 40 percent. Aftercare ointments are provided during your first appointment. "Overall they look great right away and you don't have to hide," Slight redness and mild swelling is normal.
No down time is required after microblading procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You'll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it.
Results last up to three years
Depending on the skin and lifestyle, Lucy's clients come back for touch-ups once every six - twelve months.
