Permanent brows Procedure

Unlike the normal makeup, which can be done in most salons, the permanent eyebrow procedure requires you to get a qualified permanent makeup artist who will ensure you get excellent results to avoid the common stories of people spending much money, and get very disappointed. Eyebrow tattoos have all the characteristic of other tattoos and they are bound to fade up with time. A touchup might be necessary after some time.

Permanent Eyebrow Procedure

Before going for the eyebrow tattooing procedure, ensure you have done your homework of finding some of the most reputable permanent makeup technicians. It is not just the understanding the procedure that matters but being able to get the looks you desire too. Once you have found a good eyebrow tattoo expert, you need to make an appointment. Ensure you look at some of the before and after work that a certain permanent cosmetic technician has done. The procedure takes about 1-2 hours.

The exact procedure you will undergo might vary slightly from one permanent makeup salon to another depending on the equipments they use. You will first have the eyebrow pattern and color drawn. Ensure it is perfect, symmetrical and what you will be able to live with for a long. Any mistake should be corrected during thebrow designing phase. It is the most time consuming phase of getting eye brow tattoos. Good design can help flatter you eyes and facial features as it is depended on the features you have. For instance, people with deep-set eyes, close set or wide apart eyes might require different designs. You face should be analyzed before the procedure of permanent eyebrows is done.

When the actual process begins, expect the desired permanent pigment color to be injected to your dermis top layer, just below the epidermis using a needle that could be vibrating. As it enters or pierces to your skin, it releases some tiny drops of the pigment to the whole it has created. The process is slightly painful, it is comparable to eyebrow plucking pain and it is likely to cause some skin redness and swelling. However, if the technician uses a good local numbing anesthesia, expect little or no pain at all.  Immediately after the procedure, you might get slightly darker looks. After a week to three weeks, you will have completely healed, the initial color due to needle piercing will disappear, and the color shade you chose will start appearing.

If there are any areas that were not properly done, you can go back for corrections. Most of the permanent eyebrow technicians will not charge you extra money since they are correcting some areas they missed out. It is recommended you go for a touch up after around 4 to 8 weeks. You must fully heal before you can go for correction or any adjustments that might be necessary.

Normally, during eyebrow tattooing, brow like strokes are used in the direction of growth of eyebrows to help them imitate actual brows i.e. to get the most natural looks. During the first up to three weeks after you have gone for this procedure, ensure you do not swim so much or go to saunas. Give you eyebrow tattoos time to set before you can go on with your life as usual. This will avoid instances it fading too soon.
