Brisbane’s best skincare treatment

Microblading For Cancer Patients

by | Apr 25, 2020

Our priority here at Simply Laser is to provide individually designed cosmetic treatments that will have you looking and feeling your very best. We offer a number of treatments for cancer patients who have experienced hair loss due to chemotherapy, one of which is microblading for eyebrows.


If you, or someone you love has undergone chemotherapy recently, you’ll be familiar with the hair loss that can accompany the treatments. While most patients will prepare for hair loss on their heads, it can often come as a surprise when eyebrows and eyelashes are lost.

Eyebrows in particular can have a significant effect on the overall appearance of a person’s face. For this reason, many cancer patients turn to the cosmetic procedure of microblading after chemo to maintain (or enhance) the original look of their eyebrows.


Microblading, otherwise known as 3D embroidery, is an innovative cosmetic treatment that involves creating dozens of individual hair-like strokes with a fine blade that pushes pigment underneath the skin. The result? Beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows that won’t need touching up or filling in.

While this treatment is often confused with cosmetic tattooing, microblading does not use a tattoo gun or ink. But to minimise discomfort during the treatment, anesthetic creams are used. The entire process takes about two hours, and no down time is required afterwards.  That being said, it will usually take about 10 days for your skin to heal underneath the treated area.


Leona Gallagher is one of only a handful of people in Australia who specialise in microblading. She has created beautiful brows for countless cancer patients, and absolutely loves seeing the confidence boost it provides them. See Leona’s artistry in the video below.

If you’ve already undergone chemotherapy and lost the majority of your hair, you may wish to bring a photo of how your eyebrows looked prior to chemo. Or if you’d prefer to have a completely new eyebrow look customised to your face shape, Leona can create beautiful tailored eyebrows that will enhance your natural features.
