Brushing eyebrows advert for microblading for dani louise aesthetics sidcup kent

Achieving a natural set of eyebrows has never been easier. Microblading is perfect for clients who want to keep their brows looking natural. Maybe they are sparse and just need a little filling in, or they need more shape.

These are a subtle, natural brow made up of hair strokes, perfect for every day. Some clients may find they still need to apply make up for an evening out if they like a glam brow. Microblading is one of our most popular treatments at our clinic in Sidcup, Kent.


Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup procedure that allows reconstructing eyebrows fully. It is possible to achieve the most natural finish or a bolder looking brow. Eyebrow microblading is performed by manual deposit of pigment under the epidermal layer of the skin by a handheld manual tool, therefore, small discomfort during the procedure will be present as minor breakage of the skin is taking place. 

Unlike permanent makeup brow treatment, microblading technique involves drawing individual, crisp hair strokes that are more natural looking. Microblades are several times thinner than the needles used for tattoos. Compared to hairstroke technique performed with a PMU machine, microblading strokes heal a lot thinner and crisper and do not blur. (Individual results vary due to skin type etc).

Microblading and manual tattoos have originated in Asia and became popular on a global level only several years ago.

We design the perfect eyebrows for each client and provide consultations where we listen carefully to your wants and needs. We provide the finest pigments and blades from the likes of Brow Daddy, Tina Davies and Permablend to give our clients the best results.

What is Microblading?



Together we design and pre-draw a brow which is totally bespoke to you – your colour will be mixed from the highest quality pigments to match your skin and hair tone.


This requires no tattoo gun and no ink- you can hardly believe it's not real hair. To keep discomfort to a minimum, anaesthetic creams are used throughout the procedure.


The entire process takes between 1-2 hours and there is no down time. 

What happens during treatment?


  • Do not exercise the day of the procedure.

  • Do not tan or have a sunburnt face.

  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before the procedure.

  • No alcohol or caffeine on the day of the procedure.

  • No waxing or tinting 3 days before.

  • It is best to have your eyebrows waxed or threaded 4-10 days before treatment. This cannot be done on the day as pigment can set where the hairs have been removed.

  • Please note that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

Before treatment


After your microblading treatment the brows may appear dark, this is normal and the colour lightens A LOT over the healing process. 

At Dani Louise Aesthetics we always choose a shade a little lighter than your own so that we can see how your skin takes to the pigment, if they need to go a shade or two darker this is easily done at the 6-8 week check up. This is easier and safer than going too dark and trying to lighten the brows.

  • No water, cleansers, creams, make-up or any other products on treated area for 10 days.

  • DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring.

  • Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning for 3-4 weeks after procedure.

  • Avoid heavy sweating for the first 10 days.

  • No facials, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 2-4 weeks.

  • Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days.

Microblading can last anywhere between 9 months and 3 years.

After treatment



If you have extremely oily skin, microblading is not likely to last long and you may be more suited to ombre brows. Excessively oily skin can reject the pigment, the strokes can heal differently also and rather than looking like crisp strokes can look more powdered. If you do have oily skin and want to go ahead with microblading treatment, you must bear this in mind and also bear in mind you may need to have top ups more frequently than clients with normal or dry skin. 

Other reasons why microblading may not be suitable for you:

  • Clients with very large pores on the forehead

  • Heavily sun-damaged skin

  • Delicate, fragile, sensitive or problematic skin.

  • Skin conditions like Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea, heavy Melasma etc that are present on the face will affect retention and longevity of microbladed brows.
