COSMETIC TATTOING EYEBROWS
Microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing technique that creates hairlike strokes to fill in sparse or thinning brows. The practice aims to give you an effortless full brow. No need for expensive brow pencils or gels. Of course, this sounds great in theory. Before you’re going to have eyebrow tattoo procedure you need to know more about it.
These are the important things everyone should know about before undergoing the eyebrow tattoo procedure through microblade.
As we mentioned above, microblading is semi-permanent.
Cosmetic tattooing, unlike body art tattooing, is much more superficial to the skin. The inks are also much more degradable. Your own immune system will digest the ink and also push out the pigment as well. Over time these looks tend to fade. It lasts for one to three years depending on your skin and lifestyle. Microblading does require touchups yearly or bi-yearly, but at least you won’t be stuck forever with eyebrows that you don’t like, in case you don’t like how yours come out.
To get an ideal brow for most people it requires two session.
Average person needs about two sessions. After the first session, you can come back four weeks later for a touch-up session. You have to come back four weeks later because, depending on your skin type, your skin may push out a bit of ink and in some places the hair strokes won’t be as saturated as we want them. You can see that there is a minor imperfection after the first session that needs to be filled in.
The result of eyebrow tattoing may depend on your skin type.
Very oily skin types are the most difficult skin type to work with. They’re at risk of rejecting the pigment, they are prone to pigment hydration, which is where the pigment fans into each other, the strokes sort of blend and it ends up looking like a powder-filled brow more than it looks like distinct strokes.
If you have a tendency to scar or retain keloids very easily, you might not want to have this procedure. But even if your skin type doesn’t yield ideal results, it’s still a worthwhile enhancement.
How long is the 3D Eyebrow or Microblading procedure?
It takes up to two hours per client just to draw the brow. The drawing is the most tedious part and the huge majority of the session. No one thinks about their eyebrows as much as they do when they are about to get them tattooed. It takes quite a while for us to figure out what our clients are looking for, draw that on their face, but most importantly, take into consideration their facial imbalances. It takes 10 minutes to an hour to draw the brows, depending on how much hair the client has.
How to care for your tattooed eyebrows?
There’s also aftercare to consider, which will add some time to your daily routine. We provide the client with all the necessary aftercare. Please note, clients should avoid getting their new brows wet for a week.
Eyebrows are sisters, not twins. This is very true and very important for people to understand so that they have realistic expectations. Nobody’s eyes are equidistant from the bridge of their nose so the starting points of your eyebrows are a little different. And your ocular cavities, one side right above your brow bone is sometimes a little bit more flat or rounded. So there’s a lot to account for.
The Pain is worth it.
It is a tattoo on your face. It’s not the easiest pain experience. We give our clients two options. They can dry tattoo or have a numbing agent. A numbing agent just makes your skin more vulnerable, more buttery, overall more difficult for the artist to work on, but the numbing agent also makes the experience more comfortable for the client. We used a topical numbing cream, this eases the pain considerably.
Tattoed eyebrows healing process.
The patient might feel some pressure and a scratch-like sensation. Your brows will lighten considerably after the first week. If you’re afraid that your brows are too dark as you walk out of the salon, don’t panic. They will look darker during the healing period, so please don’t panic. Trust the process and follow the aftercare instructions carefully.
The first three days are the darkest days, where your eyebrows look darker. By days four and five those little scabs start to fall off and by days seven and eight you can actually see the result underneath. It’s about 50 to 75 percent lighter than the day one eyebrows. The look fades significantly.
We can fix it if your brows get messed up.
There is no artist that never makes a mistake ever within their career. There’s a high probability that if you don’t increase the depth of the stroke that you don’t like, that it might actually just fade out in the healing process. It’s best to let it fade as much as possible. Then you can go back in and neutralize it with a skin color to make the stroke disappear. We don’t recommend removal on large areas, but certainly to refine a few strokes or something about the shape, correctional work can be done.”
Do your research. Talk to your artist. If you don’t feel comfortable with it, you’re not ready to do it. Please do your research and don’t make an appointment if you are not sure about doing microblading. We want all our clients to be excited about the process!
