This is the perfect treatment for people with little or no eyebrows and those with scars through the brow. You can chose from a natural hair stroke effect, or a soft powdered effect depending on the look you would like to create.
The first part of the process is a consultation. This is normally done as part of your initial treatment, but can be done separately if you prefer. Paula will talk with you in great detail about the look you are trying to achieve, the colour, the position, the shape of the desired effect and what she might recommend to you. Once she has an idea of the look you are aiming for, she will draw the brows on with a makeup pencil. These can be drawn on as many times as necessary! The tattoo process will not begin until you are completely happy with what they are going to look like.
A local anaesthetic cream will be applied to the skin to numb it, then using a specialist facial tattooing machine, which works at a much lower frequency than a standard tattoo machine (the Nouveau Contour Intelligent; please see photo below) Paula will gently apply pigment to the skin using very fine needles. The sensation is that of an electric toothbrush being held against your skin – you feel the vibrations but you should not feel any discomfort. The process normally takes between 40-60 minutes, but varies from person to person. Paula will always work with you at this stage, giving you breaks if you need them. Immediately after a brow treatment you should expect the area to look 40-50% darker than the colour you have chosen in consultation. This will start to fade after 3-4 days.
A second appointment is 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 colour. This is completely normal and everyone heals differently.
