Learn Our Secret...

Here at Desert Divas & Dons Medi Spa we share with you the secret of the semi-permanent mysteries to faking fuller eyebrows that look totally natural, microblading might just be the hassle-free solution to spending hours penciling in your eyebrows only to get the shape so completely wrong.


What is Microblading?

'Microblading is a type of eyebrow architecture. It is all about creating the best shape for each face – a totally bespoke approach for each client,' explains Anastaszia whom has been in the aesthetics industry for decades.

'The process is very precise thanks to the tool that is used which is effectively like a pen with the nib being a sloped blade with 10-12 little needles at the end - needles that don’t penetrate the skin but just delicately scratch the surface, much like a paper cut. 'The needle very finely implants featherweight strokes with a medical grade pigment on the epidermis layer for the skin, creating fine, realistic, and natural hair strokes.'

Frequently asked questions

How is Microblading Your Eyebrows Different Than Having Your Brows Tattooed?

'Microblading, unlike tattooing, is not in the deep layer of skin, but more on the surface. This is also not permanent, and the colour fades within 18 months. This is good because over time, trends change regarding the shape of brows so it is quit risky putting permanent tattoos on your face, says Anastaszia. 'The hair strokes are far more natural and finer than any tattoo leaving it look like individual hairs. Most clients will need a top up session. 'The top up session happens after 6-8 weeks. This is the time where we can assess the first steps, and add in any further strokes and add a darker pigment if preferred.'

How long does microblading last?

Microblading lasts anything between 12-18 months, but the longevity of the pigment will depend on your skin type. It will also depend on your lifestyle. How often you expholiate, go in the sun etc. This will be explained further in detail upon your appointment. People with slightly more oily skin will tend to last around the 12 month mark before needing a top up, but those with normal skin can last up to 18 months.

Does Microblading Hurt?

'It doesn’t hurt as such, it is more a sensation. The process itself is not painful thanks to the numbing ointment that is applied. It's sometimes the sound of the blade which people find worse – a small scratching sound.' 'The whole process is very quick – it's actually the numbing which takes most of the time (50mins), you aren’t under the needle for the whole 2 hours.'

Can microblading be removed?

'Yes – the pigment used leaves no scarring or discolouration, and we can use a salt/saline solution to remove microbladed brows. 'It is very important to know and understand that brows will be up to 40% darkerin shade for the first 7-10 days during the healing process where scabs can form and flake off. 'Ladies can sometimes leave the studio, and two days later be terrified that their brows are too dark, but please be patient – as this is totally normal! After 7-10 days, you will begin to see the final colouring.'
