WHO: Anyone from the age of 18 – 80 who desires a well-defined brow
Powder brows are the perfect option for those seeking a semi-permanent brow resulting in a pixelated effect, similar to a freshly tinted look as it leaves a scattering of pigment on the surface of the skin. Not everyone is suitable to microblading (hairstroke technique) e.g. Those with oilier or thinner skins therefore this technique is fast becoming an industry favourite! It is competed using a machine which carefully disperses pigment along the brow resulting in a high-definition crisp brow that will last for 18month+ before a colour touch up is required. The best part is, it’s pretty much a pain free option so if you’re a little nervous or anxious – this is the one for you! Like most PMU treatments a follow up treatment 4-6 weeks after T1 is required to complete the process.
You will be given very clear advice around the aftercare for your brows and must follow carefully to ensure the best possible result and to avoid infection in the 7 days post treatment.

WHO: Anyone 18+ seeking ultra soft hairstrokes
Nano brows are the hottest thing in the PMU world so I am delighted to be able to offer this fabulous treatment to my clients. When skin is sensitive and thin be it naturally or maybe due to hormonal changes, Nano brows are a fantastic option for those seeking the hairstroke effect. It is a more superficial procedure than microblading therefore causing less trauma to the skin and tends to hold better in certain skin types. Its also a great alternative for oily skin where the sebum in the skin often blurs out the more deeply set microblading strokes leading to an unsatisfactory result. Like its conterparts 2 treatments are required approx. 6 weeks apart

WHO: Anyone from the age of 18 – 80!
If your brows are barely there due to over plucking, genetics or indeed menopausel hair loss, Microblading, which is also commonly referred to as Phi Brows may be the answer! In other cases, hair loss can be linked to illness or side effects to medication, which in some cases will require medical permission (see consultation)
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT TO ACHIEVE: Your brows literally frame your face! The treatment results in the creation of hair like strokes by means of tiny incisions & skin friendly pigments which mimic natural brow hairs. A specific pattern customised to work with your own hair growth pattern, face shape, eye shape & bone structure will result in a very natural brow as soft or as defined as the client would like.
The treatment is completed over 2 or more visits*, as the careful positioning and spacing of each stroke is the key to a long lasting natural finish. Approx 4-6 weeks is allowed between visits to ensure adequate healing and to assess the true healed finish, as your new brows will go through many different phases of healing between visits.*A third treatment may be required in about 10% of cases which incurs an additional cost of €50
HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST: A touch-up will be required after approx 12-24monthsDuring Microblading, the pigment is carefully placed under the most superficial layer of your skin therefore, as your skin cells renew themselves (exfoliation) the pigment will breakdown and your brows will start to lose their lustre & definition. A lot of factors will dictate how quick this might happen such as, those with oily skin, fast metabolism, active lifestyles, users of active skincare such as AHA's or retinols may need a top up sooner than a drier skin type or more sedentary lifestyle as their skins metabolism will be slower. Revisiting your brow design can be a great opportunity to adjust the shape slightly or colour to work with a change in your hair colour for example
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY BROWS: This is key!Whichever brow treatment is recommended for you, you will be given precise aftercare for the 10 post treatment, as during this time the treated area is open to infection. Should you not adhere to this advice, your are risking infection in the area which will most likely result in your body rejecting the pigment ( not good!) Once they have healed, there are some long-term do's & don'ts including, avoiding direct sun exposure, avoiding exfoliating the area – all this will be explained at length during your consultation.
DOES IT HURT: Beauty knows no pain!! (Just kidding)Some people will find the process more uncomfortable than others and in this instance, a topical numbing cream can be obtained from your Pharmacy and applied ahead of your scheduled appointment. Some feel this is just a Placebo but if it will help you relax during the treatment why not? I also apply products to soothe and comfort the skin during each process so you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it really is!
NB. SPMU & CHEMOTHERAPYIn the case where you are expecting to lose your brows due to Chemotherapy or Radiation, it is imperative to contact me straight away! As these medications cause extreme skin sensitivities & impair healing, your brows will have to be done either in advance of beginning your treatment of a minimum of 6 month after completion. In this instance, I am contactable at anytime and offer treatment outside of regular working hours where necessary
*As per all advanced treatments, a consultation & patch test is necessary in advance and it is your responsibility to declare at this time to Aileen any medical conditions or any medication you may be taking to ensure the decision to proceed is in your best interests.
