Cosmetic Eyebrow Tattooing
Eyebrow Tattooing Methods and what to expect:
MICROBLADING is a semi-permanent tattoo where the artist uses a manual hand tool with ‘microblades' that deposit semi-permanent pigments into the superficial dermis layer of the skin.
MICROBLADING creates the most natural looking eyebrows by creating crisp hair strokes to mimic your natural eyebrow hair.
This method is ideal for anyone wanting to enhance the look of their eyebrows, but it is not suitable for every skin type.
MICROSHADING is done with a more standard tattoo machine, an electronic device that inserts pigment into the epidermis layer of the skin and results in a powder-brow look, rather than hair-like strokes.
The result gives your brows a softer, fuller finish that is reminiscent of a shadow.
There are different preference of colour intensity for you to choose from. It could be super soft and natural or more defined and bold.
COMBO BROWS is a blend of both above methods and is one of the most popular methods at the moment.
MICROBLADING is a 2 step process, usually 4-6 weeks apart. It is important to complete both the initial procedure and touch up for microblading. For NANO OMBRE/SHADING, you might not need a touch up if the healed colour is achieved after one session.
- STEP 1 -
The initial procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours. During this time, a consultation is done where we discuss your desired brow look, choose a colour tone and draw the initial outline of the procedure area for your approval.
Though our faces are NOT perfectly symmetrical (one side is usually flatter than the other), we do our very best to create as much symmetry as possible! As we like to say, BROWS ARE SISTERS, NOT TWINS.
Once you are satisfied with the basic shape and symmetry, the area is then traced over and semi-permanent pigment is applied with a disposable microblading hand tool.
- STEP 2 -
The second stage of the treatment is a TOUCH-UP appointment. The touch up takes approximately 1 hour and is included in your service.
Touch ups are done NO EARLIER THAN 4 WEEKS AFTER your initial procedure and NO LATER THAN 6 WEEKS. If you do not schedule your touch up within 6 weeks, you will be required to pay a touch up fee outlined in our touch up schedule.
Before each treatment the skin should not be burnt, or in recovery, or in the process of regeneration.
24 hours prior to your appointment DO NOT DRINK ALCOHOL or CAFFEINE.
72 hours prior to your appointment DO NOT TAKE ADVIL or other blood thinners such as IBUPROFEN, ASPIRIN, NIACIN or VITAMIN E unless medically necessary.
Avoid booking during your menstrual cycle as it can increase your pain.
No waxing, tanning or tinting 3 days before the appointment.
The following treatments are NOT recommended 30 days before the treatment:
Botox and fillers
Fruit or lactic acids
Exposure to strong sunlight.
Before the treatment always consult with your artist if you:
Have problematic skin
Have serious health issues
Take certain medications
Already have old PMU on your eyebrows.
WHAT IS TO BE AVOIDED AFTER MICROBLADING AND SHADING?
DURING THE FIRST 7 DAYS AVOID: all creams (except the protective ones), all the makeup (foundation) in the eyebrow area. Avoid exercises that cause excessive sweating, sauna, facial massage and inhalation.
IN THE NEXT 30 DAYS AVOID: Suntanning, sunbeds, light (laser) therapy, chemical peels, fruit acids, microdermabrasion, and creams that contain regeneration factors.
You should always avoid laser treatments over the treated area during the healing period (Fraxel laser, IPL) because they can destroy the pigment and cause inflammation. And faster fading out of the pigment can happen if you use antibiotics or hormonal therapy.
The pigment used in MICROBLADING and MICROSHADING is semi-permanent and can upto 3 years. The pigment will begin to fade within 12 months.
In order to keep your brows looking fresh, a touch up is recommended every 12 months to 24 months maximum. After 2 years, the full price for microblading will apply.
For clients that choose a softer look and lighter color shade initially or those who did not follow the after care instructions properly may require more frequent touch ups.
All brow tattooing is not gaurenteed to last and can depend on many factors such as age, skin type, diet, skincare, natural elements medication etc.
Immediately after your MICROBLADING and MICROSHADING procedures and in the first 10 days, your brows will appear significantly darker and more defined than perhaps your desired look. It may continue to get darker over the next few days as scabs begin to form, however this is not an accurate indication of the finished and healed result.
30-40% of your brow colour will fade as the scabs fall off within 7-10 days. In some cases, the scabs may take longer to heal and fall off.
The pigment is within the scab and you do not want to pull any pigment out of your skin prematurely. We all heal differently and what works on one client may not be effective on another so please do not compare your results.
The complete healing process takes approximately 4-6 weeks.
It is a process but I am here to answer any of your questions EVERY step of the way!
