Micropigmentation is the manual, permanent and customised process of inserting natural, hypoallergenic pigments using permanent 6D microblading technology. Lip micropigmentation improves and brightens the dark shade of lips through the application of pigments. Lips can be shaded to the lipstick colour of your choice permanently.
A consultation is carried out with our Micropigmentation expert to discuss your medical history and expectations from the treatment.
Your entire face is cleansed. The Doctor then chooses the perfect pigment colour as per your specifications. In the case of scalp micropigmentation the pigment colour is chosen as per your natural hair colour.
An anaesthetic is applied to reduce any discomfort since the lips are especially sensitive. Your lips are first outlined along the borders and then filled in with the colour of their choice.
The pigment is then worked into each stroke. A pigment mask is then applied and left to absorb into the skin.
The treated area is then cleaned thoroughly.
A skin ointment will be provided or prescribed which is to be used as specified by the Doctor. A touch up is required (and is included) 4-6 weeks after the initial procedure.
Minimise sun exposure to avoid sunburn. The procedure cannot be executed if the face is sunburned. Do not take aspirin, vitamin E, ibuprofen 24 hours before the procedure. Avoid waxing or threading of the face for at least three days before the procedure. No Laser Hair Reduction should be performed two weeks prior to the microblading procedure. Do not use retinols, peels and acne creams on the forehead and around the eyebrows for at least two to three months prior to treatment as these will make your skin extremely sensitive.
Do not drink alcohol or caffeine on the day of the procedure.
The healing process takes about ten days. Your lips will look chapped and dry as they heal. The colour will get lighter as the skin heals but will come back. You will be able to see the colour in its truest form after around two weeks. Avoid rigorous exercise for at least 24 hours. Avoid exposing the area to excessive moisture or humidity (facials, swimming, saunas, steam, etc). Till the area heals, keep your hands clean and avoid touching the treated area. Itching sensation is normal post procedure. The skin will go through 3 phases post treatment: 1. Heal 2. Peel 3. FadeDo not rub or scratch the treated area, especially during the healing & peeling phase, as it will cause pigment loss. Avoid direct exposure to the sun for three to four weeks after the procedure. The pigments will slowly fade over time according to your metabolism, skin type, sun exposure, medication, lifestyle. Regular maintenance procedures are required to keep the colour looking fresh for long lasting results.
The treated area can get very itchy post the procedure which is normal. Temporary side effects include swelling, tenderness, heaviness. For the first few days, the colour will look darker and will appear lighter after it has healed. Allergic reactions to the natural pigments are extremely rare.
You are diabetic, pregnant, breastfeeding. You are taking blood thinning medication. You have skin cancer or skin conditions like psoriasis or eczema. You have a healing or bleeding disorder. You are undergoing radiotherapy or chemotherapy. You have had botox treatment within the last one month.

I visited this place for microblading for eyebrows. Met with the consultant and doctor. The doctor was very patient and attentive, he tells you what to expect honestly. The consultant was super sweet and helped with managing my appointment and helped give the best care and treatment. If you ever need any services like botox, filler or eyebrows i would 100% recommend Bodycraft.
I was sceptical about injections. But I was also worried about my chin. The doctors at Bodycraft assured me for getting fillers and it made a huge difference. Very happy with the results.
