What is Eyebrow Enhancement

 Eyebrows frame the eyes & are one of the most expressible features of the face. Eyebrow Enhancement is an “Instant Face-lift” experience. Great brows are one of your best beauty assets. Permanent eyebrow enhancement using intradermal pigmentation, also known as permanent makeup, mimics the appearance of hair in the brow line. Micro insertions of natural pigments are applied into the dermal layer of the skin during this medically safe procedure.

A wide spectrum of colors is available to give you the most natural look. Topical anesthetic is used to minimize discomfort during the procedure. There will be slight swelling and redness of the skin, which will subside quickly. You may resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Complete healing takes one to six weeks while the pigmentation matures and reaches its final color.

Digital method of semi-permanent makeup uses a machine very similar to a standard tattoo machine, it has a pen like hand tool and needles attach in various sizes and configurations which create different styles and results. The machine vibrates making a gentle buzzing noise, similar to an electric toothbrush and pushes the tiny needle in and out of the hand tool, gently held against the skin the needles accurately inject pigment into the skin in tiny dots. Lots of different styles can be created by using different needles and techniques, changing the speed of the machine and the hand stroke will change the amount of pigment that is implanted.

By opting for a tiny single needle, increasing the machine speed and working very slowly technicians can create individual hair strokes like manual Microbladed strokes, but by slowing the speed of the machine and using a faster “whipping” hand technique (similar to sketching a pencil drawing) will create a very soft powdery or ombré effect.

The digital method is a lot more exact, the technician can gauge their pressure and depth a lot easier than manual, the pigment is injected in tiny dots rather than channels that are cut so there is far less chance of scarring although scabbing is more common with powder styles. With skill the technician will add layers of pigment increasing the intensity of the style.

Semi-Permanent makeup can last between 9 months up to 5 years, but depends on a number of factors, these include skin type, age, skin condition, medical conditions, medication and the general life style of the client.

Digital Hair-strokes and Microblading can be used to fill gaps or replace individual hairs, this technique is ideal for those who still want a very natural looking brow but may have sparse, fine hair, or who may have over plucked or lost their brow hair due to a medical condition, treatment or hormone changes such as pregnancy or menopause. Hair-strokes and Microblading is perfect for more mature clients who have found their brow hairs have turned wiry or brittle.

At first the hair-strokes look crisp and clear but once healed they soften looking more like soft pencil strokes, over time the strokes can merge together creating an uneven powdered effect, in time a powder technique can be used for colour boosts.

 

Powdered and Ombré brows are perfect if you want a finish resembling the look of a soft makeup application. Adding definition the ‘power brow’ looks similar to the effect that eyebrow powder makeup products and pencils create. It’s the ideal look for those who regularly wear makeup and simply want a longer lasting, waterproof solution or to reduce their daily makeup application time. This style can be incredibly soft and subtle for those just wanting to give their natural brows a little boost or it can be built up to a stunning powerful fashion brow for those who want a more powerful exact brow shape.

The powder technique tends to be longer lasting and fades more evenly in the skin, the fresh result softens but generally retains unlike hair strokes which never retain their initial crisp strokes.

The Powdered Ombré is often the most effective technique to correct older permanent makeup that may have discoloured or if the shape needs adjusting

Combination Brow

A combination of Hair Stroke and Powdered may be the best option for you, often this is the best option for those with oilier skin or who have had previous work that may need correcting or covering.

 

In recent years, Microblading has become a buzz word in the beauty industry, becoming one of the most popular brow treatments available. Microblading, also known as Eyebrow Embroidery, originates from Korea and has dominated the beauty, spa and ‘brow’ movement in Asia for many years.

Microblading is a hand method of permanent makeup, using a pencil like hand tool instead of a machine. It is almost the same as using a flat ended (not a sharp ended) eyebrow pencil to scratch individual hair strokes into the skin creating a natural look fluffy looking eyebrow.

There are some drawbacks with traditional Microblading, due to the “cutting” nature of the technique the skin can heal differently to digital machine method, Microblading is known to heal cooler (grey/blue) this can be due to the skin healing over each stroke, it can also be due to the stroke being too deep or scarring (if the technician has used too much pressure). Microblading often doesn’t last as long in the skin as digital methods. And also doesn’t work well for all types of skin and lifestyles such as oilier skin or those who partake in regular intensive sweaty exercise.

Good technicians should be trained and experienced in both digital machine and manual Microblading techniques, which allows them to recommend the perfect technique to suit you as an individual, your skin and your lifestyle. They could also offer a combination of the 2 techniques!

Brow lamination is the new kid on the block. But what is it? If you have unruly brows that want to do their own thing, or they’re on the thin looking side, brow lamination can accentuate and amplify whatever eyebrow hairs you have. A bit like lifting your lashes, a solution is applied to keep them in place. The result is a feathered, fuller look as the strands of hair are fixed in place to lay neatly and cover any gaps, the effects of which can last for several weeks. If combined with a tint, this technique can create the impression of a thicker brow. It’s a less invasive option than microblading, without the pain or recovery time, but the results are not as long lasting. However, it is becoming a very popular alternative eyebrow enhancement.

Brow-tinting involves dying the eyebrows to add some depth and definition, but mainly to make them appear fuller.  It works by tinting not only the main brow hairs, but also some of those outer, lighter or blonde tipped hairs around the brow that you don’t normally notice, which helps to add volume to the eyebrows.  The good thing is it frees you from needing to apply make up to your brows.  However the results only tend to last 3-4 weeks before needing to be done again.  But it is a quick and painless procedure – plus tinting is one of the cheaper options out there.

 

Anyone can improve their eyebrow shape simply by using make up.  A brow pencil is a tried and tested way to create an outline and fill in any gaps, intensify colour and shape brows easily without committing to anything more permanent.  There are handy compacts that contain wax and powder – smooth on some wax with the angled brush provided then work in the powder to enhance those brows. Powder gives quite a soft look, so you may prefer a creamier brow pomade which is a waterproof colour that gives a more intense, HD style result. It usually comes in a little pot with a small brush, so you can use individual strokes to imitate brow hairs, or use one of the new pens that can draw on several hairs in one go for more of a microbladed look.  Also check out tinted brow gels which are a quick and easy way to apply colour to your brows with a wand, much like a mascara – some products also contain fibres to fluff out eyebrows and make them appear fuller.

Micro-waxing is another hair-removal method and a possible alternative to threading for super-bushy brows. It works by carefully applying warm wax and then paper strips to your skin. This wax adheres to unwanted hairs and takes them with it when the wax and paper are quickly pulled away.

Discomfort is momentary (although people with sensitive skin may experience some redness for a short time afterward). In fact, it is generally considered to be less painful than threading, although not always quite as accurate.

 

Methods we use to treat

Micropigmentation, also known as permanent makeup, permanent cosmetics or cosmetic tattooing, is a cosmetic procedure used to improve or replace lost coloring on your skin. Micropigmentation is most often used on your face – to enhance eyebrows, eyelashes, eyelids (as eyeliner) and lips as well as on the scalp for the look of fuller hair. It’s also used to camouflage or improve scars, even out skin coloring and restore color to areas of skin that have lost color. Anyone – male or female – can get micropigmentation. If you are a person who wants to look their best while avoiding the physical challenges of applying makeup, micropigmentation may be especially appropriate for you.
