Powder / Ombre eyebrows:
Semi permanent eyebrows compliment the face and by adding more symmetry and volume it can make a big difference to the appearance of the facial features and skin tone. If you are after a stronger, more defined brow, this eyebrow tattoo procedure is the treatment for you. This semi permanent eyebrow treatment works especially well on people who already have good eyebrows and just lack some volume. This cosmetic eyebrow tattoo technique will create more fullness to your brows and can be compared to penciled/powdered in brows that will last you up to 2 years. This technique is done with a cosmetic tattoo machine that implants a fine powder mist in the upper layer of the skin (epidermis). With our new pixel permanent cosmetics techniques we can create soft smudge proof makeup that lasts and still look completely natural. Please allow 2 and a half hours for this treatment.
A combination of hair strokes and the powder mist and is suitable for all eyebrows and face shapes. This 3D eyebrow tattoo technique is done with the manual hand tool and cosmetic tattoo machine. Realistic hair strokes with soft shading to create more definition. The on trend fashion at the moment. Please allow 2 and a half hours for this treatment.
Things to remember before your treatment:
- Avoid sunbathing, waxing, skin peels around the area, laser treatments or eyebrow tinting at least 2 weeks before your treatment.
- No alcohol, caffeine or blood thinning (for example aspirin) medicines 24 hours before your treatment.
- Inflamed skin (on the eyebrow area).
- Area will be red and swollen after treatment, so take this in consideration when you make your booking.
- Do not discontinue any medication without your doctor’s consent.
- You cannot donate blood up to 6 months after your treatment.
- Fillers and botox treatments should be carried out after your semi permanent makeup treatment and not before.
Consultation, treatment and aftercare:
Before Annette starts doing any cosmetic treatment she has an in depth consultation with her client to make sure we meet your expectations. We offer a number of eyebrow techniques and we will discuss what treatment will work best for you. She will guide you through the semi permanent makeup treatment process and answer all questions you might have. You will have the option for a patch test if you have any concerns of an allergic reaction. If not, the procedure can be done on the same day.
Moving on to the pre-drawing, Annette takes her time in doing the structure and measurements with an eyebrow pencil to create the perfect shape that compliments her client’s facial features. Eyebrows play an important role to give balance to the face and the pre-drawing can take anywhere from 10 – 30 (if not longer) minutes to get the shape and symmetry perfect. This is the most important part of the procedure and you can be confident that you are in safe hands. Once we have agreed on the shape, we will apply the numbing cream that stays on for 20 minutes. During this time we will select the colour pigment to compliment your eyebrows and skin colour. We use high quality pigments that are hypo allergenic and sterilized needles for single use only. Implanting the hair strokes/shading takes from 45 minutes to 1 and a half hours. During the treatment we will use a secondary anaesthetic to control the sensation.
You can expect the area around your eyebrows to be slightly red immediately after the procedure and this will disappear after a few hours. The eyebrow tattoo will appear slightly darker immediately after the treatment and will lose up to 40% of the intensity of the colour after 1 week once the scabs/dry skin have cleared up. During this time (1st week) it is recommended to avoid touching the area, use cosmetic creams on the eyebrows area, sunbathing or wet the eyebrow area. Do not pick the scabs as this will result in pigment loss. We will provide you with an aftercare balm that needs to be applied with a clean cotton bud once or twice a day. It takes up to 4 – 6 weeks for the colour to settle and completely heal. We will book in your top up appointment 4-6 weeks after your initial eyebrow treatment as you may have areas that need more pigment added. This is also the perfect time to make minor adjustments to the shape and colour if need be. (Pigment retention can be influenced by after care, skin type, medication and immune system.) If skin retention is poor, in some cases a 3rd session is required. (This rarely happens).
The eyebrow tattoo typically lasts 12 to 18 months. Oily skin, skin texture, exposure to sun (use SPF while sunbathing), exfoliation products and skin lightening products like Vitamin A and retinol can affect the longevity of your eyebrow tattoo. Avoid applying these creams on the cosmetic tattoo. We recommend a yearly colour boost to keep your cosmetic tattoo at its best.
