I speak to hundreds of people who suffer confidence loss silently as a result of their eyebrows – or lack of them! This may sound dramatic – but it’s true. Women who miss out on activities with family and friends, turn down all kinds of events, shy away from taking part in sports, and skip anything that involves water….is this sounding familiar?
With permanent cosmetics there really is no reason to carry on missing out on things. As I speak to so many in this position, I know that it’s not usually something that suddenly happens overnight. Only when you have done something about it do you realise what you’ve been living with!
The first part of the process is a consultation. This is normally done as part of your initial treatment, but can be done separately if you prefer. I will talk with you in great detail about the look you are trying to achieve and what I might recommend to you. This is very much a two-way conversation. I listen, I respond, I advise. Once I have an idea of the look you are aiming for, I draw the brows on with a makeup pencil. These can be drawn on and adjusted 50 times if necessary! I will never begin the tattoo process until you are completely happy with what they are going to look like.
Using a specialist facial tattooing machine, which works at a much lower frequency than a standard tattoo machine, I gently apply pigment to the skin using very fine needles. The sensation is that of an electric toothbrush being held against your skin – you feel the vibrations but you should not feel any discomfort. I will always work with you at this stage, giving you breaks if you need them. The process normally takes about 1-2 hours, but it varies from person to person depending on your individual requirements. Immediately after a brow treatment you should expect the area to look 20-30% darker than the colour you have chosen in consultation. This will start to fade after 3-4 days.
A second appointment is usually needed 4 weeks after your first treatment. This is usually a 30-60 minute appointment to add more pigment to the brow area. This is because as the area is healing, some parts may not ‘hold’ as well as others and you may have a few patches that need more colour. This is completely normal and everyone heals differently. Whatever the case, I advise you always come back to clinic for your retouch.
A brow treatment is a three–part process usually completed within two appointments. The price you are quoted will include all three stages.
Bespoke permanent makeup brows
Because permanent makeup is not implanted as deep as a normal tattoo, it will fade over time. Some factors make it fade faster, like sun exposure and certain skin care products.
It gradually lightens and fades over around 12-18 months.
At this stage, a colour boost is recommended to freshen up your permanent makeup eyebrows.
