Microblading is sometimes called eyebrow embroidery and is a relatively new, manual method.  It is considered to be semi-permanent makeup, whereas the traditional hairstroke technique is more permanent makeup.  It is done using a very fine blade to deposit pigments into the epidermis.

Microblading is becoming an incredibly popular treatment, because more and more people like the fine results that it can offer. The pigment is implanted in the basal membrane, which divides the epidermis from the Dermis layer of the skin.  This technique is therefore more superficial than tattooing.  The strokes appear crisp and very fine, because they are impacting colour closer to the surface and there is no spilling under the skin.

This amazing Eye Brow treatment suits people who have the wrong Brow shape, over plucked eyebrows, loss of hair or patchy areas that will not grow back or through medical reasons, such as Alopecia or chemotherapy.  Microblading gently enhances your natural features, giving clients more confidence in their overall appearance.

People suffering from alopecia or any other condition that causes hair loss benefit greatly from Microblading as well as people, who simply are not happy with their eyebrows.

Everything You Need to Know About Microblading Your Eyebrows!

Eyebrow tattooing in Cornwall


It doesn’t matter if you like them arched and feathered or straight and bold, eyebrows are an important facial feature. If you’re not satisfied with the ones you have, then there are so many ways to update them, including tattooing. Now there’s a very natural option that delivers semi-permanent results called Microblading. Unlike the effects of permanent make up, microblading is more like embroidery strokes that look just like real hairs.

Diane Madeley, microblading expert explains the unique service and there’s no surprise why so many women love it. Microblading is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, cover gaps or fill-in over plucked brows. The professional lash and eyebrow expert also revealed that those who just want to add a slight arch are also great candidates and the results are a natural, undetectable fringe.

The technique differs from tattooing, because during the microblading process Diane uses a special microblading pen to draw on individual strokes one by one. It’s an extremely meticulous process that takes around two hours to complete. Since the results will last for up to three years, before beginning to fade, it’s good to know that Diane pays so much attention to detail.

During the first hour Diane draws the shape in with removable pencil. That’s the longest part and the most important step. During this time, the best customized shape for every client is chosen and agreed with the client, before microblading begins. Diane advises clients to be cautious of places that claim to complete the process in one hour, because it’s not a rushed procedure and it cannot be done in an hour.

Before the microblading begins, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area to minimize discomfort, followed by a liquid anaesthetic. If you’re worried that the process is painful, some clients may feel a slight discomfort but it’s relatively painless.

3 Steps to Perfect Brows

The best part about this technique is that there is no down time. Your new set of brows will be ready immediately after the process. However, Diane does recommend a follow-up one month after your appointment. The healing process is different for everyone and it takes between 25 and 30 days. After a month, Diane recommends a 40-minute touch-up to most clients.

Unlike eyebrow extensions, which you have to be careful about maintaining, microblading is low maintenance. After healing, you can rub them and enjoy swimming. No special care is required, except for a brief touch-up once a year. The smudge-proof solution will cost you £200 plus £65 touch up a month later but waking up every morning with perfect brows will totally be worth it!

Diane can create almost any look that you desire for your eyebrows from a very natural light finish to a beautiful bold brow.

Over plucked missing brows or sparse brows can be completely restored. When using the microblade the colour is closer to the surface of the skin, so very fine, crisp hair strokes can be achieved with no spilling of colour under the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions About Microblading Eyebrows

How long does the microblading procedure last?

This varies from person to person and a colour refresh is recommended on average from 12-18 months after your initial microblading procedure.

How long does it take to do?

Investing an hour or two of your time can make you beautiful for years to come.  The procedure is split into 2 appointments, which are 4-6 weeks apart to allow for the healing process to complete.  The initial procedure will take from 60 to 90 minutes, and your second appointment takes from 30-60 minutes.

Do I need a patch test?

Yes, all clients need a patch test at least 48 hours before the procedure.  This can be posted out to you, if you live a long distance away.

Does the microblading application hurt?

We take every precaution necessary to ensure the micro-pigmentation application is as pain free as possible.  A wide range of medical grade anaesthetics are used for your comfort.  Some clients find the procedure a little uncomfortable, whereas other clients report no discomfort at all.  A combination of 2 anaesthetics are used, first a topical numbing cream and then a local anaesthetic is introduced once the microblading procedure has started.   This is topped up regularly during the treatment to keep you comfortable.

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.  

How do you choose the shape?

We choose a shape and style together.  At the beginning of the microblading procedure, Diane will draw in a suggested shape for your new brows and then we work together to perfect this to your preference and measurements are taken to check symmetry and position.

How do you choose a colour?

We choose a colour together by applying small amounts of different coloured pigments to the skin near to your brows and selecting the best match for your skin tone, features and personal preference. 

What types of pigments do you use?

Cosmetics and medical tattooing have been proven to be safe.  Many medical professionals, who perform their own tattooing, use the same pigments that we use.  People have been placing colour in their skins for a very long time and through the years a generally accepted list of colour additives, which are expected to perform well, have proven to be safe.  The FDA does not regulate the colours that are used in tattooing nor do they regulate colours used in cosmetics.  Our supplier’s ingredients for our inorganic pigments are iron oxides, distilled water, alcohol, glycerine and general colours that are found in all retail makeup.

What will they look like immediately after the procedure?

Your brows may be a little swollen, red and sometimes a bit white.  This is all very normal.  They will be considerably darker for the first week, before they begin to fade out to a softer colour.

Will they fade?

Your body’s skin changes over time and so will any permanent makeup coloration implanted in to the skins layers.  However, this natural fading process takes years and touch ups are easily done as your colours fade over time.

Can I have my brows microbladed if I'm pregnant?

No you cannot have this treatment done, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. 

Does it hurt afterwards

The area can be a little sore for the first few hours and then tender to the touch for a couple of days.

Will my Microbladed Eyebrows look fake?

NO!  Semi-Permanent makeup is done using a cosmetic tattooing process and our eyebrow pigmentation unique artistry guarantees soft, natural looking eyebrows.  When we implant semi-permanent makeup pigment in the skin, it appears more natural looking than even topically applied cosmetics.     

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 different for each individual and remember it takes time to adjust to a new look!

Are there any side effects during or after the procedure?

During the procedure there may be some minor bleeding.  This will depend on the client.  If a person is taking blood thinners on a daily basis, then some slight bleeding may occur.  Bruising is rare but if a person is on blood thinners, then bruising could occur.  There is usually some tenderness for a few days.  The colour is much darker than you may expect for the first six to ten days.
