There are many reasons why people choose to get Permanent Eyebrows or Microblading. Hair loss due to over tweezing, waxing, or illness has forced many of us to pencil in our brows daily. The feeling of being inadequate or self-conscious about your brow application is enough reason to do something about it. Whatever your concern, we could make a dramatic change in your life with a brow treatment.
We speak to thousands 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. Men and women alike 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 Eyebrows there really is no reason to carry on like this. We know this is not usually something that suddenly happens overnight. Only when you have done something about it do you realize what you’ve been living with!
A Permanent Eyebrow treatment is a three–part process usually completed within two appointments. The price you are quoted will include all three stages. At SKYN Clinic & Apothecary we do Hair Stroke and Powder Fill Brow techniques. You must come in a for a consultation to determine what technique is needed for your.
STEP 1: THE CONSULT
The first part of the process is a consultation. You and I will discuss in great detail about the look you are trying to achieve and our recommendations for you. This is very much a two-way conversation. We listen, we respond, we advise. Once we have an idea of the look you are aiming for, we draw the brows on with a makeup pencil. These can be drawn on and adjusted as many times as needed! We will never begin the tattoo process until you are completely happy with what they are going to look like. Each brow is measured for symmetry and evenness. How full or thin you want your Permanent Eyebrows are taken in to consideration at this time. [We have an elaborate measuring process]
STEP 2: THE TREATMENT
After topical numbing, we use a special facial tattooing machine, which works at a much lower frequency than a standard tattoo machine, we gently apply pigment to the skin using very fine needles. The sensation is that of an electric toothbrush being held against your skin. We will always work with you at this stage, giving you breaks if you need them, and continuously numbing the area. The process normally takes about one hour, but it varies from person to person depending on your individual requirements. Immediately after a brow treatment you should expect the area to look 40-50% darker than the color you have chosen in the consultation. This will start to fade after 3-4 days.
STEP 3: THE TOUCH-UP
A second appointment is sometimes needed 4-12 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 color. This is completely normal and everyone heals differently. Whatever the case, we advise you always come back to the clinic for your touch-up.
