What is Eyebrow Enhancement?
Eyebrows tattooed by a machine is a Semi-Permanent cosmetic tattoo using very fine micro needle which adds pigments to the skin closer to the skins surface to create a more subtle look. The choice is yours when it comes to your eyebrows you can choose from a wide range of techniques or a combination of both. You have the option of a powdered look, to bold ombré brow, or a natural enhancing hair stroke look.
How it works?
A eyebrow enhancement is a type of semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing procedure achieved by depositing pigments in your eyebrows using a micro needle. One of the biggest advantages of machine brows is how realistic and natural the final result looks.
Does it Hurt?
Your eyebrows are a very sensitive part of the face, for this reason I use a topical prescription numbing cream that sits on the face before I begin and use a secondary numbing throughout the procedure.
It takes around 5 to 10 days for your eyebrows heal after the procedure. Be aware that the color will vary quite a lot during the healing process before reaching your desired color. Following aftercare steps provided are essential for optimal results.
Eyebrow tattooing is considered a semi-permanent procedure. This means you'll need to repeat the process every few years to maintain your results. Frequent exfoliation, sun exposure, and certain acids/retinols can make the pigment fade faster over time.
How to Prepare for a Eyebrow Enhancement Appointment?
Bring pictures in order to show your desired shape and color. Eat something before your appointment to make sure your blood sugar levels stay stable during the procedure. On the day of your appointment come in with your brows filled in with makeup so we can take before and after photos.
What to Avoid Before a Eyebrow Enhancement Appointment?
Do not consume alcohol, caffeine, fish oil, Vitamin E, aspirin and ibuprofen as they cause the blood to thin and will result of more bleeding during the procedure(Tylenol is fine to take).
Do not work out the morning of your appointment. Don’t plan on any Botox or Filler in the area for 2 weeks before or after your procedure. Sun burns need to be completely healed. No tinting or waxing two weeks prior. No laser or electrolysis on or around the treatment area one week prior to procedure. Do not have any chemical peels, dermabrasions, mesotherapy, or any other intense treatments which will cause faster skin cell rejuvenating and cause skin irritation 3-4 weeks before procedure. If you have been taking acne medications such as Accutane or Retin-A within the last year you have an altered skin condition that will not heal well after the procedure. It’s very important that you wait a year before tattooing the skin. Retinol and Vitamin A are very similar and should be discontinued a month prior to the procedure.
