Permanent cosmetic enhancements normally require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results you will be required to return for at least one control procedure four to eight weeks after the initial application.

Permanent make-up is a cosmetic technique which employs tattoos (permanent pigmentation of the dermis) as a means of producing designs that resemble make-up, such as eyeliner, brows and lips. It is also used to produce artificial eyebrows, particularly in people who have lost them as a consequence of old age or disease (such as alopecia totalis, chemotherapy, or a genetic disturbance) and to disguise scars and white spots in the skin such as in vitiligo. It is also used to restore or enhance the breast’s areola, such as after breast surgery. We offer:

  • Powder permanent brows.
  • Hair strokes brows.
  • Hybrid brows (mix of both).
  • Lip liner.
  • Lip & blush.
  • Full lips.

The Microblading price includes two treatments, the first treatment and a top up (correction) after 4-8 weeks when brows are healed. It’s your responsibility to book the top up with enough notice given to your therapist within this time frame, otherwise you will be charged for the touch-up session. 

Microblading is not suitable for all skin types. Not suitable if you have oily or dark skin or if skin bleeds too much during the procedure. Final outcome is dependent on individual’s ability to retain colour. Not recommended if you are looking for something long lasting ( we also offer permanent make-up brows that last 2-5 years).

Information about Microblading

Microblading is semi permanent make-up also known as eyebrow embroidery and originating in Asia, Microblading is a way of producing the most natural finish to your eyebrows. The process involves inserting pigment under the epidermis (thin outer layer of skin) using a specially-designed small blade which leaves thin realistic hair strokes. Bretonside Beauty Clinic in Plymouth can design a brow especially for you from a natural light brow to a beautiful bold brow. We can also restore partially or completely missing brows.

The difference between Microblading & permanent make-up

You may not have heard of permanent makeup or Microblading before but our Plymouth salon can help. Microblading differs from semi-permanent makeup in that it is a manual procedure performed by our Plymouth therapists. A handheld micro blade can deposit colour closer to the skin’s surface than when a machine is used leaving fine and crisp hair strokes without spilling under the skin. Microblading can last about 1 years but we recommend a top-up after 6 months which costs significantly less than the original treatment. The top-up will give the brow a colour boost or refresh at a fraction of the original cost. Like all semi-permanent treatments, Microblading requires a topical anaesthetic which can be maintained throughout the treatment making it relatively painless. Please note that we require a patch test 24-48 hours before a Microblading treatment. Furthermore, a £50 non-refundable deposit is needed to secure your booking. You can pay your deposit online here. If you’re still not sold, we offer a free consultation! For Microblading in Plymouth, contact Bretonside Beauty Clinic today.

After and before treatment

Permanent cosmetic enhancements normally require multiple application sessions. To achieve the best results you will be required to return for at least one control procedure four to six weeks after the initial application. Your tattooed area will change during your healing period, usually looking much darker after the initial treatment, however the pigment will fade between 20 and 50%. Before that happens, your brows will change colour a few times. Immediately after the procedure they will look very dark. After 3-7 days your body develops dry, flaky skin or sometimes heavy scabbing. It’s very important to not apply make-up on top of your brows during that process and follow the after care instructions to achieve the best result. You might also notice your skin is itchy. Please do not scratch your skin, it’s completely normal as your skin is healing.

After the treatment avoid for 3 days:

  • Contact with water (please wash your face as described by the technician).
  • Alcohol wipes or perfumes and other alcohol based cosmetics.
  • After 3 hours you can start using the after care cream that has been given to you (other products may cause the pigment to fade or change colour).

Before and after

  • To book your treatment we will require a patch test (pigment and numbing creams).
  • The patch test can be done at the salon or can be sent to you with a consultation form if you are not able to pop in during the week. However, the deposit would have to be paid (online) before we send you a consultation form with a patch test.
  • If the patch test has been sent by mail, it would have to be done at least 24h before the treatment and the consultation would have to be signed and brought with you on the day.
  • Do not use a sunbed 2 weeks before or 2 weeks after the treatment.
  • Do not sun bathe during healing process (the pigment may change colour).
  • Do not use a sauna, jacuzzi or swimming pool. The water body heat may remove pigment from your skin.
  • It is not recommended to use AHA skin care products (before and after until the healing process is in progress).
  • Please do not use make up on your brows until they heal (4-6 weeks). You can apply make-up on your face, just avoid the brows.
  • Do not use Retin A products (1 month before and after).
  • Please do not bleach or tint your brows as that may cause problems choosing the right colour to match your brows.
  • Do not use the gym for at least a week after the procedure.
  • Your body may try to remove the pigment; it’s recommended to have a top up after the healing process to achieve the best look. However the pigment won’t always stay under the skin, you might consider a permanent method to be used instead of Microblading.
  • A top up is only possible after the healing process (4 weeks) and it has to be done no longer than 3 months after the initial treatment. It’s your responsibility to book it.
  • We do not offer refunds after we have carried out the treatment.
  • We cannot guarantee a successful result on 100% of our clients, especially those with skin problems.
  • To reschedule your appointment we will require 7 days notice (e-mail, voicemail, in the salon, Facebook). Failure to do this may cause you to lose your deposit or additional top up payment.
  • Please arrive on time for your appointment (or 15-20min before so the numbing cream can be applied earlier). Being late may cause problems for another client’s appointment.
  • Eyelash extensions and contact lenses have to be removed if an eye-liner treatment is performed.
