MY MICROBLADING EXPERIENCE

Hi guys,


In April, I got my eyebrows microbladed and I am obsessed with the results!







Pictures taken immediately after the first appointment.




It cost £350 and I went to a lady called Charlotte Taylor who is based in Kirkstall, Leeds in a clinic called BeYouAesthetics. It's not the cheapest thing, but the amount of money and time I was spending going to get my brows tinted and threaded at Shavata every 4 weeks was adding up, and I really wanted the extra 10 mins in bed every morning (and perfect brows 24/7).



The procedure actually wasn't painful- it was 'uncomfortable' at parts but the technician applied two sets of topical anaesthetic throughout which massively helped with any discomfort.




Firstly, Charlotte measured my face and then made a template for my eyebrows, based on my proportions and also what she thought would most suit me. I gave this the OK and then she began. I opted for the 'hair stroke brows' look as this is the most natural and I didn't want anything too dramatic. The procedure in total took about 2 hours. Next time I'd be tempted to try the 'combination brow' which is a more defined look and a mix between hair stroke and powder brows.



For about a week after, I had to apply a special balm to my brows every morning and night, to help them heal. I also had to avoid exercise and getting them wet.

Day 1-2 they looked UNREAL and I received so many compliments. It got to around day 5 where they were very itchy and I had to resist the urge to touch them at all as I didn't want the pigment coming out and leaving me with patchy eyebrows.



By day 7 I began to panic because as the skin was healing over the brows, the microblading looked to be disappearing. Charlotte had warned me of this though so I knew it was all part of the process.



2-3 weeks later they had come back but not nearly as dark as they were- this is why the second 'top-up' appointment about 6 weeks after the first one is crucial, or you won't get the desired effect. This top-up appointment is included in the £350 price.




Here's what they looked like straight after the 'top-up' appointment (ignore my awful hair please!!) I asked if they could be made a bit darker. Also bear in mind i've applied some of the special aftercare balm to them here:











The 'healing process' that I went through after the initial procedure I'm told isn't nearly as intense this time round, but I still need to apply the aftercare balm every morning and night for 7 days and try my best to not get them wet.

They will last 12-18 months and if I go back before 12 months to get them done again, the cost will be half price.


Any questions just let me know in the comments below, but I would totally recommend to anyone!
