Microblading - Free Consultation

Book a free microblading consultation to talk through the treatments



Manual Microstroking, sometimes referred to as Microblading, Brow Micropigmentation, Manual Technique, Hand Method Eyebrow Permanent Makeup, Feather Brows, 3D-6D Brows, Cosmetic Tattooing and Eyebrow Embroidery.  Manual Microstroking is done by using a unique hand instrument with a small row of very fine needles that deposit pigment into the epidermis with slicing, feathering strokes. This creates very crisp, fine hair strokes.

This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows. The results are natural looking, hair-like strokes, regardless of the amount of hair present.

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

The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brows appear darker, but fade significantly over a two-week period. It is absolutely crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment.

The results can last anywhere from 11 to 18 months, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment.

After 5 years of perimenopause hair loss my eyebrows had almost completely fallen out. I found Linda online and we had a consultation. Linda explained all of the options available to me and how it would work. Linda was so knowledgeable, professional and understanding of my circumstances.With her informed advice we selected the right treatment, colour and size for the most natural look to replace what I had lost.Linda made the process so easy and explained what she was doing. We had a great chat along the way which really helped me to relax and just let Li da do her thing. I’m so pleased with the results and Linda’s great work. I will definitely be going back when the time comes.

I highly recommend Linda! I had my brows done by someone else the first time I ever did it a few years ago and I wasn’t very happy, which really put me off trying again. I told Linda my concerns and she was so lovely, patient and reassuring and they turned out amazing! I am so happy with the results. I will definitely be a regular now 🙂

I had my second eye liner appointment with Linda last month and I have to say a huge THANK YOU to her. I have a scar caused by an operation on my eyelid which goes into my lash line and Linda worked her magic and after the healing process it's not noticeable anymore and my liner looks just awesome.She spent time explaining how she would pass over the area and explained the pain factors involved. We discussed colour and shape and she just made me feel comfortable as possible because she's placing a tattoo on my eyeline.Looking forward to coming back for my powder brows 😊

Linda is exceptionally informative, kind, considerate and thoughtful. Right from the initial consultation she took the time to explain everything, being honest about the procedure, pain that might be experienced and the initial couple of weeks after the treatment. During the procedure itself she was thoroughly professional and attentive to my wellbeing and reactions. Soothing, calming and dedicated to her skillful work, she managed effortlessly to combine the treatment with a gentle, reassuring conversation. Her aftercare is reassuring and rigorous.Microblading was definitely not an easy treatment, I found it a little painful at times, but others may not. Linda was reactive to my flitches, applied more numbing balm and was always honest and informative about the possibility of a touch of pain.It was absolutely worth it though. As a lady who literally had a few hairs as eyebrows and was sick of my eyebrow pencil, I love the difference. They look so natural, they look fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend Linda for this treatment. She ensures you enter the procedure fully informed, with a clear understanding of the pro's and con's of the procedure and a detailed guide to aftercare to get the best out of your treatment. Thanks Linda. X

Microblading Guide

Microblading - Everything you need to know

Microblading has become an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment in the UK, offering individuals the chance to achieve fuller, more defined eyebrows through a semi-permanent tattooing technique. The process utilises a fine handheld tool that precisely etches hair-like strokes onto the skin, ultimately creating a natural and realistic appearance of fuller brows. This treatment is particularly favoured by those looking to enhance their eyebrows, either due to thinning, over-plucking or simply dissatisfaction with their natural shape and thickness.

To fully understand what to expect from the microblading process in the UK, it’s essential to be aware of the various stages involved. Firstly, a consultation with a qualified practitioner will take place to assess the individual’s unique requirements and determine the most suitable brow shape and colour. Once the desired outcome is agreed upon, the microblading process begins with the application of a numbing cream followed by the careful creation of the hair-like strokes using the specialised tool. Throughout the procedure, suitable aftercare advice and guidelines will be provided by the practitioner.

The healing process after microblading typically takes around 25 to 30 days Microblading Healing Process. It is normal to experience some tenderness and discomfort during the initial stages of healing. However, following the recommended aftercare instructions will significantly contribute to a smoother and more successful recovery. Ultimately, understanding what to expect and meticulously adhering to post-procedure care will result in a more satisfactory microblading experience and enhanced eyebrow appearance.

Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing technique that creates the illusion of fuller, more evenly shaped brows. It’s a form of permanent makeup and is different from traditional tattooing, as it involves using a specialised and more delicate manual hand tool. Fine strokes are made by hand to create the illusion of real hairs, making it the preferred choice for those seeking brow perfection.

The microblading process begins with a practitioner or tattoo artist mapping out your new brows. Then, they use a handheld tool with tiny needles to add pigment into the epidermis (the top layer of skin) of your natural eyebrows, shaping them to your desired look. The overall appearance of the microbladed brows is realistic, as the artist emulates hair strokes by etching them into the skin using a microblade tool.

During the microblading process, the initial layer may cause some discomfort, but subsequent layers typically hurt less. Many professionals apply a numbing cream, and the body’s natural response also helps numb the pain.

When it comes to aftercare, it is crucial to keep the brows dry for the first 2 hours to 10 days following the procedure. This allows the pigment to settle and ensures the best possible healing process.


The microblading process begins with a thorough consultation. During this initial meeting, we will discuss various aspects such as your desired brow shape, colour and overall expectations. It is important to share any medical conditions, allergies or concerns so we can ensure a safe and effective procedure.

Mapping and Outline

Once the consultation is complete, we will will begin the final look at mapping and outlining the new brow shape. This step involves measuring your facial features and creating a symmetrical, customised design tailored to your unique face structure.

Application of Numbing Cream

To minimise discomfort during the microblading procedure, a numbing cream is applied to the brow area. This anaesthetic helps to alleviate any pain that may be experienced during the microblading process. The cream is typically applied a few minutes before the actual procedure, allowing time for it to take effect.

Microblading Procedure

The final stage of the process is the microblading procedure itself! Utilising a microblade tool, the practitioner makes tiny cuts in the skin, creating fine, mimicking natural hair strokes. These hair strokes are carefully etched into the upper layers of the skin, allowing for the semi-permanent pigment to be deposited. Multiple layers may be necessary to achieve the desired results, with the practitioner applying more numbing cream as needed.

During the microblading procedure, it is essential to follow any aftercare instructions given by the practitioner. This will help ensure a smooth healing process and optimal results. Remember that the healing process typically lasts from about an hour to 25 to 30 days, with a follow-up session scheduled to touch up any areas that may require additional work.

In summary, the microblading process involves a consultation, mapping and outlining the desired brow shape, applying numbing cream for comfort, and finally, performing the microblading procedure. By adhering to the aftercare instructions and returning for a follow-up session, clients can enjoy long-lasting and natural-looking brows.

Immediately After the Procedure

After the microblading procedure, it is important to follow proper aftercare instructions to ensure the best results. The immediate aftercare involves gentle cleaning and applying a protective ointment to the treated area.

  1. Cleaning: Use a damp sponge or washcloth to dab the area around the eyebrows gently with warm water and a mild soap. Avoid touching the brows themselves and make sure not to scrub or rub the area.

  2. Ointment: Apply a thin layer of ointment prescribed by your technician to keep the area moist and reduce the risk of infection. This is usually done multiple times a day for the first few days after the procedure.

Ongoing Aftercare

As your skin starts to heal, following these ongoing aftercare measures will help achieve the best results with least discomfort:

  • Tenderness and Itching: It’s normal for the treated area to feel tender and itchy during the healing process, which typically takes 25 to 30 days. Refrain from scratching or picking at the brows, as this can cause scarring or affect the pigment.

  • Flaking and Peeling: Your skin may begin to flake or peel during the healing process. Do not pick or pull the flakes; let them shed naturally.

  • Scabbing: Microblading may cause some scabbing around the treated area. Avoid picking or removing scabs, as doing so can affect the pigment and final results.

  • Avoid Swimming: Do not submerge your brows in water, including swimming pools, beaches, or baths, during the healing process.

  • Avoid Saunas: Stay away from saunas, steam rooms, and hot tubs until the skin has fully healed, as exposure to steam and heat can affect the treated area. Source

Following these aftercare guidelines diligently can greatly contribute to achieving the best possible results from your microblading treatment.

Healing Process and Touch-Ups

The healing process after a microblading procedure can generally be broken down into a few stages. It is normal to experience some redness, swelling, and tenderness during the first few days. Scabs may also form on the eyebrows as the micro-wounds heal.

On day one, the eyebrows will appear darker than desired due to the fresh pigment. However, clients should be reassured that the colour will fade over time as the healing process continues. By days five to seven, the scabs and flakes on the eyebrows start to fall off, making way for new skin. It’s important not to touch or pick at the healing eyebrow area though, as doing so could interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of complications.

Throughout the healing period, which typically lasts 25 to 30 days, clients should follow the aftercare instructions provided above. This may include avoiding sun exposure, applying antibacterial ointments, and resisting the urge to touch or apply makeup on the brows.

After the initial healing process, clients should expect to have a touch-up or follow-up appointment. This first session is often scheduled six to eight weeks after the first microblading session. During the touch-up, the microblading technician will assess the healed results and make any necessary adjustments or enhancements to ensure a balanced and refined appearance. Touch-ups are crucial to achieving the best possible results and maintaining the appearance of the semi-permanent eyebrows.

Microblading, a popular semi-permanent makeup technique for enhancing the appearance of eyebrows, also comes with a few potential side effects and risks. It is essential for individuals considering this procedure to be aware of these risks to make an informed decision.

During the microblading procedure, some individuals may experience discomfort and an uncomfortable sensation, especially if they have a low pain threshold. This discomfort can be managed with the help of a numbing cream applied before the treatment. However, it is essential to discuss this with the practitioner to ensure the appropriate measures are taken.

Bleeding may occur during the microblading process, as tiny cuts are made in the skin to implant the pigment. The extent of bleeding may vary from person to person, but light bleeding is relatively common. It usually subsides quickly and does not pose a significant risk.

Puffiness and swelling in the brow area can also be a common side effect, particularly in the initial days following the initial treatment itself. To minimise this, practitioners may recommend using a cold compress and elevating the head while sleeping.

In some cases, individuals may be prone to more serious side effects or complications, such as infection, allergic reactions, and scarring. To minimise the risk of these side effects, following the aftercare advice is important. If any signs of infection or an allergic reaction appear, seeking immediate medical attention is necessary.

Another potential risk associated with microblading is permanent eyebrow hair loss. This can happen in rare cases where the trauma caused by the procedure results in damage to the hair follicles. In such cases, it is uncertain whether the hairs will grow back.

In summary, while microblading can provide a desirable result for many individuals, it is imperative to consider the possible side effects and risks. By doing so, one can make an informed decision and be better prepared for the healing process.

In determining who is a good candidate for microblading, several factors should be considered such as skin type, age, overall health, and certain health conditions.

People with normal to dry skin types are generally good candidates for microblading, as their skin tends to accept the pigment more readily. However, those with oily skin or sensitive skin may experience issues with pigment retention and healing. In this case, a different approach to eyebrow enhancement, such as ombre powder brows, may be more suitable.

Age also plays a role in determining the suitability for microblading. While there is no strict age limit, it is recommended for individuals to be at least 18 years old. Younger individuals may not fully understand the semi-permanent nature of the treatment or have unstable hormonal levels that affect the healing process.

Overall health is another vital factor to consider. A person should be in good health before undergoing the microblading procedure. Those with autoimmune disorders such as lupus or frontal fibrosing alopecia may not be suitable candidates, as these disorders can compromise skin health and hinder the healing process.

Individuals who are undergoing chemotherapy are also not advised to have microblading, as the treatment may weaken the immune system, making it difficult for the body to heal after the procedure. Those who have experienced hair loss due to alopecia can consider microblading as a solution for eyebrow enhancement, provided they consult their doctor first.

Consideration should also be given to the following:

  • Pregnant or nursing women should avoid microblading, as the procedure may pose potential risks to the baby.

  • People with haemophilia or heart conditions should not undergo microblading or any tattooing procedures, as the healing process can be risky.

During the initial consultation, we can discuss any factors which may mean microblading isn’t right for you.
