Does eyebrow cosmetic tattooing hurt?

Pain tolerance varies from person to person. A topical anesthetic is applied to numb your eyebrows before and during the procedure, so very little discomfort is experienced. Most of our clients feel that it is irritating but not painful.

How long does the cosmetic tattoo last?

The pigment can last from 1 to 3 years. Hairstroke eyebrows will last only a year and we recommend to have a touch-up once a year. Light colors will fade faster than dark colors. The advantage is that the color can be modified or changed to follow any new trend. The color fading will depend on several factors: aftercare instructions are followed, UV exposure, skin care treatments, health condition, medication, lifestyle, and the color implanted (light vs dark color). You can schedule maintenance visits every year or every few years to keep the color fresh.

When are the follow-up (or touch-up) and maintenance appointments to eyebrows cosmetic tattoo procedures?

The tattooed color may not be perfect after the initial procedure heals. A follow-up appointment is normally scheduled within 4 to 8 weeks, depending on your age, to determine how the eyebrows tattoo procedure healed and if any further work is needed because some area might healed lighter from tissue swelling and bleeding during the procedure. The result color that you see from the pigments used plus your skin tone. If your healed color leans toward an undesired tone, it can be adjusted at the second visit. Your eyebrows will probably heal lighter or thinner than you desire but they can be darkened or thickened with a second application of pigment at a follow-up visit (“touch-up”) with no additional cost.

What is involved in the healing and after care of the eyebrows?

Swelling may last from 2 to 24 hours, this is very individual.
Aftercare will be covered after your procedure, and a sheet with aftercare instructions will be provided for you to take home.

Right afer the procedure: Pat it dry. Gently blot the area every 5 minutes with a clean tissue to absorb excess of lymph fluid for the full day until oozing has stopped to prevent any hardening of the lymph.

Day 1 – 7: Wash daily to remove bacteria and dead skin with an antibacterial soap such as Cetaphil, by using your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse well with the water. The cleansing products should not contain any acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliates.

Keep moist with aftercare: Apply the provided aftercare ointment with a cotton swab on the treated area. Do not use Vaseline and do not over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

Extra tips to help with a smooth and easy recovery:

  • During the 1st week: Use a fresh and clean pillowcase. Avoid sleeping on your face.
    Do not scratch, pick out the scab because it might cause infection, scarring or loss of color.
    Avoid hot and sweaty exercise. Do not apply eyebrow pencil and cream on the treated area.
  • During the first 10 days: Avoid swimming, sauna, spa, steam, heavy sweating and long hot showers.
  • During 4 weeks: No facials, botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion. Avoid direct sun exposure or tanning (wear a hat).

Shower tips: Limit your showers to 5 minutes to prevent create too much steam. Keep your eyebrows out of the water while you wash your body, then wash your hair then wash your face at the end. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.

What is the difference between 3D eyebrows and 6D eyebrows?

There is no difference, it is just marketing. Therefore, we do not advertise for 6D eyebrows.

What is the difference between hair stroke, shading and mix eyebrows?
  • Hairstroke​ eyebrows​ is a microblading technique by creating hair strokes all over the eyebrows shape to fill the empty gaps and give the illusion of fuller brows. The Hairstroke eyebrows design will give you the most natural look and is the one commonly referred to as 3D eyebrows, eyebrow embroidery, or eyebrow feathering.
  • Shading​ Eyebrows​ consists in blending the color on the eyebrows by using several colors. A lighter color is applied at the head of the eyebrows while a darker color is applied at the tail. This technique will give your eyebrows a perfect shape without any empty gaps.
  • Mix eyebrows​ is a combination of microblading technique and shading technique. It is our signature eyebrows style. This design is for people who are lazy to draw eyebrows everyday, who do not know how to draw eyebrows, or who have an old eyebrow tattoo, or who want both a natural look and a perfect shape.
Why are the prices in some shops so cheap while others are so expensive?
  • If you find some shops that advertise cheap services for 1,xxx – 2,xxx Php please do some research before making your decision purely based on price. They might propose the old eyebrows design, use cheap or fake pigments or even body pigments that are not appropriate to use for face. Please check their work and especially their cleanliness and safety. If the price is up to or more than 10,xxx ฿, it might be because of the rental, the decoration or the staff costs so all those costs add up in the final price.

AFTERCARE

EYELINER, LIPS AND EYEBROWS EMBROIDERY

Make-up Embroidery

After care is very important for producing beautiful and lasting results.

 

• Keep the area clean by washing with freshly washed hands and a mild soap. Do not use a washcloth or sponge to remove soap. Simply splash with water. Do not use cleansing creams, acne cleansers or astringents. Use a mild, natural soap.

• Apply the aftercare balm with freshly washed hands or a Q-tip. If the balm is too stiff to use simply warm it up in a glass of warm water or on your finger. Use the balm very sparingly. Too little is better than too much. Blot off excess with a clean tissue. Never touch the procedure area without washing your hands immediately before.

• Do not scrub, rub or pick at the epithelial crust that forms. Allow it to flake off by itself.

• Do not use any makeup near the procedure area including mascara for eyeliner procedures for at least 3 days. Purchase new mascara and makeup if possible to avoid contamination or bacterial infection.

• Always use a sun block after the procedure area is healed to protect from sun fading

What’s normal ?

• Mild swelling, itching, light scabbing, light bruising and dry tightness. Ice packs are a nice relief for welling and bruising. Aftercare balm is nice for scabbing and tightness.

• Too dark and slightly uneven appearance. After 2-7 days the darkness will fade and once swelling dissipates unevenness usually disappears. If they are too dark or still a bit uneven after 4 weeks then we will make adjustments during the touch up appointment.

• Color change or color loss. As the procedure area heals the color will lighten and sometimes seem to disappear. This can all be addressed during the touch up appointment and is why the touch up is necessary. The procedure area has to be completely healed before we can address any concerns.This takes about four weeks.

• Needing a touch up months or years later. A touch up may be needed 6 months to 2 years after the touch up procedure depending on your skin, medications and sun exposure. We recommend the touch up 60 days after the first session (included in today’s price) and every 6 months to 2 years to keep them looking fresh and beautiful.Touch up sessions after 6 weeks will range from P3,998.00 to P6,998.00 or current touch up rate at time of touch up. **Failure to follow after care instructions may result in infections, pigment loss or discoloration.

Eyelash Extension

• Eyelash Extension should not get wet for a minimum of 2 hours.

• Don’t use regular or waterproof mascara because a lot of mascara contains chemical properties & oils that will break down the adhesive.

• Be careful in removing mascara from your lashes as it can cause the extensions to fall off prematurely.

• Make sure to take special care around the eye area when cleansing your face. Do not scrub the eye area and gently cleanse

 

• Avoid any type of oil-based product around the eyes because it will break down the adhesive and cause the extensions to fall off. • Use eyelash combs instead of curlers for grooming your lashes every morning.

• Avoid extreme heat, humidity and cold weather so your extensions can last longer.
