Katy realised that after 10 years of exploring various avenues in her industry, ranging from hair and make-up for the Sky television team to special effects on Hollywood Blockbusters, she wanted to add to her skill set and train with the U.K.s most esteemed permanent cosmetic company (www.kbpro.com).
Her unique blend of skills, combined with an intuitive passion for makeup, has enabled her to incorporate a Microblading service into her repertoire.
Who is it for?
Microblading can be scaled to any age, skin colour or gender. Reasons for the treatment include:
What is Microblading?
A technique used to created the most realistic looking brows using fine hair strokes to mimic the look of real brows.
The 3 part treatment includes:
1. The consultation
Done separately or as part of the initial treatment, between Katy and you, a decision on suitable brow shape, pigment colour and overall look you are after will be agreed.
2. Microblading Treatment
Using a hand held tool, tiny hair strokes are created as to mimic the natural direction and length of your brows. Pigment is then implanted into the dermal layer channels of the skin.
A slight degree of sensitivity is expected and has been likened to a ‘scratch’ like sensation. Numbing cream is applied to reduced this sensitivity.
The pigment with appear up to 40% - 50% darker compared to the initial chosen colour.
This fades within 3-4 days to reveal your chosen colour.
The treatment itself can take up to an hour.
3. The Retouch
6 - 12 weeks after your initial treatment more pigment can be added if required.
Since the skin is in its healing stage, it may not hold the pigment in certain areas.
This is completely normal and healing times vary across individuals.
For best results a colour boost is required 12-18months after your treatment to keep your brows looking fresh.
