We recently welcomed Viki from VIPcosmedics into the salon, she is going to be running a microblading clinic every few weeks and has come highly recommended and with an excellent reputation. Microblading is the newest semi permanent way to create perfectly applied makeup, with eyebrows, eyeliner and lip liners being the most well known.
Id always liked the idea of semi permanent eyeliner, I’ve never been great at applying eyeliner, it always took me ages to get the perfect look and then 2hrs later I’d look in the mirror and it had either smudged or disappeared! However a lot of the results I’d seen on friends or in magazines had always seemed a bit fake and I was wanting a more natural look.
After having a chat with Viki and looking at some of her work I was assured that a natural look is achievable with microblading, so I decided to take the plunge!
First of all I needed a patch test. This is really important as you need to be absolutely sure you are not sensitive to the product that is being used, especially as this procedure would be done around the eye area. Viki made a small scratch on the inside of my arm and put some of the ink onto it and was told to keep an eye on it for the next few days for any sign of irritation.
Everything was ok so we made another appointment for the actual treatment.
The procedure took about an hour and included filling out a consent form and I also had an anaesthetic cream applied to my upper lid to numb the area.
I can honestly say I felt no pain at all during the treatment and was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the experience was!
Viki went over my lash line 3 times in total, she explained everything she was doing as she went and made me feel totally at ease, stopping after each line and letting me look at what she had done.
Viki did explain that after the anaesthetic cream had worn off my eyelid would be a bit sore and red but this was completely normal.
This is what my lashline looked like before and after the treatment.
And this is what they look like now a few weeks later.
I am so pleased with them it saves me time in the mornings and received so many compliments! Am now planning on having my eyebrows and lips done!
If you are interested in having any microblading treatments I would definitely say go for it! Viki runs regular clinics from Bodylanguage either call the salon on 01823 275566 for dates and appt times or message us on our Facebook page!
