What is microblading?
Microblading is a specialised technique which uses a handheld micro-blade to infuse pigments into the upper layers of the skin to create the most natural and beautiful semi-permanent eyebrows. The micro-blade produces a very fine line that resembles real hair which blends in with existing eyebrow hair. The results are very natural and can last from 12-24 months, however, regular colour boosts are recommended to retain the shape of the brows and saturation of the pigment.
Who is microblading ideally for?
Microblading is the perfect solution for those who have sparse, over plucked, over waxed and thinning eyebrows. It is a great choice for those who wish to cover scars and fill gaps, define shape or create an arch to enhance the look of their eyebrows.
What products do you use?
Wioletta uses PhiBrows which are high quality pigments that do not turn into blue, green or purple colours over time if you maintain your brows well, the colour of the pigment will just soften over time.

Does it hurt?
Pain during the treatment is relative. Scared clients usually feel stronger pain, while the other clients compare such pain with the one that they feel when plucking out their eyebrows. In addition, with women having period there is an increased sensitivity to pain, so it is not recommended to do the treatment.
How long is the healing process?
The eyebrows will lighten in colour as they heal.
It takes approximately 7-10 days for the brows to heal and about 1 month for the colour to fully set in. You will notice the colour is very light two weeks after healing and your skin will have an opaque, milky looking quality to it. This is known as ‘milk skin’ and is common in tattooing. This is due to the skin tissue’s healing process. True colour of the pigment will reveal itself once healed.
Touch up session is mandatory to lock in the process and fill in any possible gaps where the pigment did not take initially to further correct and enhance the final result. This touch up session has to be booked on the day of your appointment or within the time frame of 6-8 weeks. Failure to do this will result in an additional fee being applied for the touch up session..

How long does it last?
Semi-Permanent makeup will last anywhere from 1-3 years. However, skin type, lifestyle, the density of colour infused into the skin (softer enhancements do not last as long as strong, bold ones) and maintenance all can affect the durability of the pigment.
