I've been toying with the idea of having my eyebrows microbladed for over a year, I have seen it done well on several clients, and as you can see from my before picture, you'll see why.
As a child of the nineties I over plucked, a lot. The hairs never really grew back, and even though I had some success with brow growth serums, they needed to be used indefinitely for the results to maintain.
After speaking to a few friends, I decided to visit Sian at Realistik Beauty in Swansea. Sian is highly trained and is constantly up to date with the latest trends and techniques. She has travelled the world and has demonstrated her techniques at international exhibitions.
During the consultation, Sian made me feel really relaxed and showed me the brow shape she would give me using a pencil. The shape was pretty much what I had been drawing in, so in the interest of saving precious time in the morning I decided to book.
The booking is for two sessions, 6 weeks apart. During the first treatment, Sian mapped out the shape of my brows using specific tools and techniques. The brows were drawn in using a pencil while I sat up, to make sure the brows were even and sat correctly.
Then laying down, Sian began with the blade... I can honestly say that it didn't hurt, but it was a bit uncomfortable. I would compare it to someone plucking your eyebrows.
Once the first brow had been bladed on, Sian applied a numbing cream, allowing her to carry on, at which stage I couldn't feel a thing.
The sound is a little unpleasant as you can hear the scratch of the blade on your skin, but its more than bearable and worth it for the results.
The aftercare advice was great, the salon supplied me with a little bag, full of everything I'd need, including chocolate!
The brows need to be wiped, firmly every three hours, then coated with a thin layer of vaseline. This stage is to be repeated frequently for 24 hours, then a few times a day for the next few days.
I am so happy with the results and would recommend anybody wanting it done, to visit Sian for a consultation, you can call - 01792 447946
