Today we’re answering one of the biggest questions that we’re asked on a regular basis, so hopefully this will help clear a few things up for people out there who are interested in microblading and permanent makeup but possibly feel a bit scared by the unknown element of the process.
Q. What does the permanent makeup process involve?
A. Once you have decided that you want to go ahead and have a semi permanent makeup treatment with Sian you will book in for an appointment which will include a full consultation carried out on the same day as the procedure. However, if you are unsure on whether or not you definitely want to go ahead you can book in for a consultation only and then book the treatment on a separate day. Please be aware that a deposit of £100 is required to secure your appointment and is redeemable on procedure.
When you arrive at Sian’s Harley Street clinic you will need to fill out a medical consent form, just to make sure you are suitable for the procedure.
The consultation involves Sian discussing your expectations of the permanent makeup treatment and a full in-depth anaylsis of your requirements to make sure the most realistic end result is achieved. The consultation is a great time for you to ask Sian any questions you might have and she will be able to talk you through the procedure and put your mind at ease with what to expect.
On the day of your treatment a ‘before’ photo is taken so you can compare the end result after the procedure is over and see how amazing the results are.
Before the procedure starts Sian will apply a numbing cream to the area to make sure minimum discomfort during the application. Now its time for Sian to assess the best colour match for you from a selection of the finest grade pigments, Sian will show you and make sure you are happy with the colour before she starts the procedure.
Now the exciting part begins and Sian will apply a makeup pencil to draw the desired shape, this allows you to see what the shape will look like and gives you the very important chance to ‘approve’ it, almost signing it off before the treatment itself starts. This ensures there are no scary surprises! Sian never carries out a procedure until you are 100% happy with the design so you know exactly what the end result will look like.
Now you are ready for your permanent makeup treatment to begin! Sian implants the pigment into the skin using a fine needle using the latest state of the art machine and the procedure itself takes about 90 mins.
Afterwards you are left with stunning semi permanent makeup that will last up to 12 months!
