We will first draw on the brow by hand, strand by strand, to get to the shape that is made just for you. The specialist will take into account your existing brow shape, your facial structure, and your preferences. Once we decide on the brow form, we decide on the color and mix a hue specifically for you.
A topical numbing cream is applied which will take approximately 20 minutes to take effect. Then, the specialist will use a specially-made tool to delicately scratch the brow into the skin, strand-by-strand. Dye is then applied into the brow design for the final look. The entire treatment time is approximately two hours.
There is no downtime; however, the brow will take about two weeks to fully heal. The brow may appear darker than you wanted for a few days, then it will lighten into the desired color within two weeks. Please follow after-care instructions and return for the touch-up in 6-8 weeks to finish the treatment.
Between the initial treatment and the touch up, you may experience slight peeling (typically noticeable only up close) and fading of the brow. This is a natural part of the treatment process. The 6-8 week touch-up will build on the color that has already been absorbed into the skin.
Your new eyebrow will last for up to 18 months, depending on individual circumstances (e.g. skin type, thickness and depth of color selected, and lifestyle), and will fade gradually and naturally.
Apply our after-care cream for the best results. Use a q-tip to apply to eyebrows. Do not pick at the brow when the color starts to peel. To be certain color is not compromised, please avoid the following for one week after treatment: sun exposure, saunas, excessive sweating, and brow makeup. Avoid the following for two weeks: swimming and facials.
Up to 18 months. Hair color, skin type, after-care, and lifestyle also affect longevity of the results. Occasional touch-ups are a way to refresh the results. Done correctly, the treatments do not change color and fade naturally away with time.
Yes, a touch up session after 6-8 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and the outcome will vary from person to person. Certain areas may need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted; brow thickness can be adjusted and more strokes can be added if necessary.
