Combination Brows, Norwich
Eyebrow tattoo in Norwich.
A combination of a few microbladed hair strokes at the head of the brow, going into a beautiful soft ombre powder brow using a machine.
The microblading at the head, create very fine hair-stokes using a hand tool and blade. This can be a good compromise for those with unsuitable skin (older, oily, red/ruddy or thick/textured skin for example) for microblading alone as you will still get the look of a few hairs at the head/bulb of the brow.
PROS: heals perfectly; not to light, not too heavy. Great for almost all skin types. The perfect compromise if microblading is not an option. The ombre powder part can be perfectly adjusted to achieve just the right level of colour and saturation for you. If you want something really light and natural, no problem. If you want something a little heavier to eliminate the use of any makeup in the brows, again, no problem.
CONS: the microbladed strokes at the head of the brow may not heal perfectly.
This is because the hair strokes will blur over time in the skin, no matter how good the technician is as its just they way the skin heal and reacts to the pigment in the epidermis.
Microblading is NOT suitable for older, oily, red/ruddy or thick/textured skin.
Older skin is too thin, weak and damaged, however because we are literally only adding in around 4-6 hair strokes at the head of the brow, should any problems arise, it is easier to correct should your skin not hold the hair strokes well.
This option will NOT be available for those with very oily, older or red/ruddy skin as I can guarantee the outcome will not be desired and this will be at my discretion.
If this is the case, then your best and only option will be to have a stunningly beautiful Ombre Powdered Brow.
At the appointment we will do a mini consult (if you did not book a separate consult), making sure this technique is right for you. We then start by drawing on your brow design. We agree on a design together, and then discuss what colour options would be right for you. The actual microblading part takes about 30-45 minutes.
I use only the highest quality grade supplies, pigments, and sterile blades.
This technique will last around 18-24 months before a booster is needed.
I use Permablend pigments which are considered to be the best pigments in the industry by most permanent makeup artists as well as body tattooists.
This is an important part of the treatment and whether you come along for a separate consult, or have a brief one at the start of the session, I will always talk things through with you.
During the consult, I will do the pre-draw making sure you have perfect symmetry and that you are absolutely happy with the shape before any microblading/PMU work goes ahead.
The initial procedure will take around 2 hours, so please do allow plenty of time so that I do not feel rushed.
Once the pre-draw has been done and you are happy with it, the actual procedure will begin.
You will be FULLY numbed throughout the procedure to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
Most clients say the pain is around a 2-3 out of 10.
Aftercare is probably the second most important part of the treatment after the pre-draw as this is what will determine your final results. It is of the utmost importance that you follow my in-depth instructions (taken away with you in the form of a card) as I have worked hard to find the best aftercare for my clients and one that will yield almost perfectly healed results.
You will be given a little aftercare goodie bag to take home with you.
Eyebrow microblading, combination brow tattoo in Norwich
A patch test is required to be performed at least 24 hours before each appointment. Without one, I'm unable to go ahead with the treatment.
You are welcome to pop in and have me perform the test on you, which literally takes seconds, or I can post one out to you with full instructions.
It is a very simple test and can either be done by yourself, or with someone to help you.
It is incredibly rare to have any reaction at all to the pigments as they are mostly organic in compound, but it is still possible - hence the need for a test.
You will be patch tested for all the products that will be used on and in your skin; the pigments and the lidocaine (numbing gel/cream).
Consultations are great to have and are recommended - especially for those clients who are still a little unsure and would like some assurance about the procedure, to see more pictures and have me put your mind at ease.
During the consultation (which takes around 20 minutes), I will perform a patch test, draw on a very rough eyebrow shape just to give you an idea, choose the pigment that matches the closest with your current brow hair and answer any questions you may have.
*PLEASE NOTE: consultations are charged at £50 (non-refundable). This is redeemable against the cost of the treatment should you go ahead and book.
CLIENTS WITH PREVIOUS SEMI-PERMANENT MAKEUP:
If you have previous permanent makeup/tattoo on your brows, eyes or lips, then you will need to email me a photograph showing what you currently have, as clear as possible, so I can determine whether I will be able to cover up, or work over it.
Not all previous work can be covered up or worked over for a few reasons:
If there is still a lot of pigment in the skin as the skin just won't be able to take any more pigment - just like filling a bucket full of water.
If the previous work is poorly shaped, then designing a new shape over the top has to be considered carefully.
If the previous work has changed colour to a blue/greenish tint or red/orange tint. Again, depending on the level of the saturation, will depend if more pigment can be added to the skin, or colour corrected, without the previous work showing through once healed.
