Looking to improve your eyebrow shape or looking for a low-maintenance option to keep your brows flawless? You might be in the market for eyebrow tattoos! If you are wondering about how it all works, the process, the risks, the recovery, and the incredible options to compliment your face without the daunting, daily upkeep, then keep on reading.
The Perfect Fit
Besides wanting a fabulous pair of semi-permanent brows, you should be in good health before making the leap. If you have any conditions below, your brow technician needs to know them for treatment and healing purposes.
- Heart conditions
- Allergies to metal, latex, or other products
- Circulatory disorders
- Blood diseases
- Pregnancy or nursing
At your consultation, the technician will assess your skin undertones to match you with the best pigment. Next would be discussing what treatment and style you are fond of with professional recommendations on what would best compliment your face. The color, thickness, and shaping are all important factors to consider prior to getting the tattoo.
Once you have made your selection, you will have your makeup drawn on as it will be tattooed. That way you can see how it will look on your face before you commit entirely. You can have several styles drawn on and photographed for comparison before making your final decision.
Once the process is complete, it will still take a couple of weeks for the pigmentation to settle in. Then you will return to the salon for a touch-up after 4 to 6 weeks. After that time, you will have your semi-permanent brows for about a year.
Recovery & Care
You should get an after-care ointment that can be applied as often as necessary to alleviate any scabbing or itching. Avoid the sun, touching the area with unclean hands, and picking at the temporary wound. Do not use makeup, cleansers, moisturizers, or serums over the tattoos. For the first couple of weeks avoid swimming, sauna, and extreme exercise that causes excess sweating. Do not dye or thread your eyebrows until they are completely healed.
