KB Pro Microblading In-Depth

For anyone who is serious about having microblading done or if you’re just curious and would like to know more, this page gives you the really important in-depth information you will need to know before booking a consultation and/or treatment.

Can anyone have this treatment?

  • NO, some medical conditions and medications contraindicate the treatment.  If you have any medical conditions, allergies, if you are taking any medications and/or supplements or if you are pregnant or breast feeding please contact us first before booking a treatment to check your suitability.

Is the treatment suitable for everyone who is not contraindicated to the treatment?

NO:

  • We will be unable to treat people, at present, with complete brow hair loss due to alopecia and/or cancer treatments.  This is because treating a skin with no hair is more complex and would be a higher skilled treatment.  We would need to have the Elite qualification to be able to treat you.  This is something that we at Swinford Beauty Barn will be looking to achieve in the future. Hayley, Swinford Beauty Barn’s KB Pro Microblading Brow Artist, will be working towards but this is not expected for another couple of years. 
  • Your skin type, condition, and oil level will effect the result you can expect to achieve.  To manage your expectations of the treatment please contact us before booking to access your suitability, as very oily skins, for example, may not end up with crisp, fine hair strokes but rather slightly more blurred hair strokes.  This may not be an issue at all but we highly recommend contacting us first for a chat.
  • If you already have remanence of previous semi-permanent brows we may not be able to treat you until sufficient amounts of the pigment have faded, but please do get in contact so that we can advise you on your suitability.
  • Your expectations may limit your suitability for this treatment.  For example, if you wish your brows to look like a block tattoo we will unable to treat you as we provide the natural hair stroke treatment.  Similarly if you wish to have make-up effect brows such as ombre, powdered or fusion, we will be unable to treat you, again our Microblading is the REALISM technique of fine hair strokes.  But again, please do get in contact so that we can advise you.

What happens in the treatment?

  • Firstly, we start with a separate consultation.  This is to answer any questions you have after reading these pages, to go over the treatment in a more personal manor and to establish not only suitability for the treatment but also to determine and manage your expectations.
  • At your actual microblading appointment we talk through the treatment step by step, so that you are prepared and familiar with what’s going to happen.
  • Then we match the pigment to your underlying skin tone.
  • We take before treatment pictures (for comparison).
  • We then draw on hair strokes to your brow with a brow pencil, this allows you to see the finished result before it becomes semi-permanent.
  • Once we have finished these steps it’s time for the semi-permanent treatment to start.
  • This procedure involves breaking the skin, creating a channel, whilst simultaneously implanting semi-permanent pigment into the skin to create hair like strokes of colour in the brow area.
  • We then take after pictures (for comparison).

  • Consultation
  • Pigment matching

£50 deposit required to secure your booking, which is put towards the cost of the treatment.

Important note: We require all our microblading clients to participate in before and after photos.  These are for insurance and marketing purposes.  Only your eyes (which may be closed) and brows will be in shot and never your full face unless you give us express permission.  By having a microblading treatment with us you are agreeing that your before and after pictures may be used for marketing purposes (your name will never be used, unless you give us permission).


What happens after the treatment?

After-care:

  • The after care is very strict and must be followed to the letter.  More detailed after care is available on request but the simple fact is you must not let ANYTHING touch your brows for 10 – 14 days after the treatment!  It’s that simple.

Re-touch:

  • Your treatment consists of two parts; the first is your first microblading procedure, the second is your retouch.  The retouch is a follow up appointment 4 – 6 weeks after the initial treatment.  You must attend a follow up appointment regardless of whether you need any additional work to your brows. Not all hairs strokes can take in the first treatment, they will be re-done at this follow up appointment to finish your treatment off.

Photos:

  • At the end of the healing process you will come back in for us to take the true result after pictures.  This can be done at your re-touch appointment should you not require any more work done or after the next 4 – 6 weeks healing process after your re-touch.

How long does Microblading last for?

  • The treatment can last 9 – 18 months depending on your skin type. If you have an oily skin you would expect the results to fade nearer to the 9 month milestone (as a guide).  All skin types, 9 – 18 months after treatment, will need a ‘Colour Boost’ to top up or refresh the effect if you wish to ‘keep up appearances’.

What happens after 9 – 18 months?

  • Should you wish to keep up the microblading effect please re-book with us to perform a ‘Colour Boost’.  This is where we top up the colour that has faded, giving you defined brows once more.  A colour boost can only be performed if we provided the original treatment and if there is still colour left in the brow revealing a reasonable shape.  Should the effect have faded out completely we would need to perform a treatment from scratch.

Colour Boost Treatment (9 – 18 months later) includes:

  • Consultation
  • Microblading prodecure
  • Follow up retouch 4 – 6 weeks later
  • Final true healed result after pictures

£200 (based on full treatment price of £295) all inclusive***

Partial treatment colour boost price upon consultation.

£50 deposit required to secure your booking, which is put towards the cost of the treatment.

***A further £25 is payable at the end of your first treatment, this is held as a deposit and paid back to you when you return for your final healed pictures which are an insurance requirement***
