A patch test is not mandatory. If you are concerned about an allergy, your skin type or have a medical concern, it would be advised to have a patch test initially. This falls under ‘Patch test and Consultation’ on the booking system.

If you are using retinol based products please ensure the treated area is not peeling, if any peeling has occurred please refrain from using the products beforehand. Please do not fake tan up to 72hrs before your appointment.

Microblading can still be carried out if you have oily skin and Stephanie will tailor the after-care to your skin type. Please be extra careful when showering to avoid steam and excess moisture.

In regards to any corrective work please send Stephanie clear images before booking in. You can do so via email. Ideally the pigment should be as faded as possible, however Stephanie will recommend what she thinks is best going forward. 

You can attend your appointment with makeup on. Stephanie will need to wipe around the treated area so the less the better. You may feel some tenderness in the area that has been worked on and redness is common on sensitive skin types. The Eyeliner and Lip Blush treatments can leave the area swollen. 

A booklet and ointment will be given to you on the day of your appointment. At the end of the session you will receive an aftercare email with the relevant instructions on how to look after your treatment. You can also find the information on the Aftercare tab above. 

If you require an additional top up this incurs a £50 cover charge. There could be a number of reasons as to why you may need an additional session, including aftercare, general skin conditions, or if you would like to enhance your treatment.
