In fashion thick fluffy eyebrows, but if nature has not rewarded you with them – there is a solution.Tired of touching up your eyebrows every day? Try permanent makeup.
Permanent eyebrow makeup is a procedure in which pigment is injected under the skin to correct the shape, thickness and color of the eyebrows. It is an indelible makeup, performed by the method of superficial tattooing, so permanent makeup is also called tattooing.
How to make permanent makeup more durable?
However, unlike the present tattoo in the tattoo, the pigment is put only in the uppermost layers of the skin. Because of this, the permanent eyebrow makeup procedure is less painful. But the exposure occurs on very sensitive areas, so discomfort is still felt.
With time permanent eyebrow make-up fades, but it happens very slowly – usually within a few years. This is both a plus and minus of the tattoo – on the one hand, it replaces the daily application of decorative cosmetics, which is a big time saver. On the other – to correct a failed result is extremely difficult, long and unpleasant. Before deciding on the procedure of permanent eyebrows make-up, it is worth weighing the pros and cons.
How to do permanent eyebrow makeup?
A couple of days before the procedure of permanent eyebrow make-up, it is recommended to refrain from visiting a solarium, drinking alcoholic and energy drinks. The procedure itself takes place in several stages.
- Skin cleansing and disinfection.
- Correction of the eyebrows shape.
- Local anesthesia – if desired.
- Layout of the future eyebrow shape.
- Choice of dye shade.
- Introduction of the pigment under the skin.
- Treatment with disinfectants and soothing agents.
Techniques of permanent eyebrow makeup
We will introduce you to three modern techniques of permanent eyebrow makeup that have proven themselves with masters and clients.
Permanent eyebrow makeup “Powder spraying”
The technique of permanent eyebrow makeup “Powder Spraying” gives a soft, natural result. This technique uses a special tool with a spraying needle and several shades of dye, which are chosen according to the client’s appearance.
High-quality performed powder spraying of eyebrows looks like a light haze that imitates natural daytime makeup. It allows you to increase the volume and density of the eyebrows, making the face more expressive.
In powder eyebrow spraying, the needle penetrates to a depth of less than 1 mm, whereas in classic tattooing it is up to 1.5 mm. The superficial introduction of pigment provides naturalness and makes permanent make-up not so long lasting. But powder spraying of eyebrows is non-traumatic and practically does not cause painful sensations.
Hairy permanent eyebrow makeup
This technique of permanent eyebrow make-up is the application of the dye with thin strokes, imitating the hairs. The master can draw strokes in one direction or in different directions – the second option is preferred because it looks more natural. The method of hair permanent make-up is suitable for those who have light or rare eyebrows.
The technique of permanent eyebrow makeup called “microblading” involves making small incisions in the skin by hand, in which the dye is introduced. It’s quite a labor-intensive technique that requires a lot of experience and skill. Healed after microblading the eyebrows “grow back” a new layer of epidermis, and the permanent make-up looks like a natural shading.
Eyebrow permanent makeup: healing by days
As the most progressive and modern technique of permanent makeup today is the powder coating of the eyebrows, in this section we will focus on it. We will tell you about the healing and crusting after the powder method of permanent eyebrow makeup.
Day 1. Immediately after the procedure eyebrows look neat, without puffiness and redness. The exception is clients with very sensitive skin, but even in this case the eyebrows “calm down” within a few hours.
Day 2. The eyebrows take on a more intense shade, darkening slightly. But at the same time, the powdery plumping looks good and does not force you to hide it until it has completely healed. You may not be accustomed to bright eyebrow color, but have patience – the end result will be delicate.
Day 3. On the third day after the powder permanent eyebrow makeup, the crusts dry up. They must be treated with the remedy recommended by your master. With proper care, the crusts will soften, moisturize and not come off before time. Sometimes permanent makeup artists advise dry healing, without the use of moisturizers.
Day 4. Skin lesions heal quickly, and the crusts thicken. Under no circumstances should you interfere with this process! Be careful when wearing clothes so as not to damage the crusts, do not steam them and do not scratch them.
Day 5. By the fifth day of permanent eyebrow makeup healing, the crusts are completely gone. Your eyebrows look natural, but they may look too light to you. This is legitimate, because so far they are covered with a thin layer of newly healed skin, which dulls the pigment color. Within a few days to a couple of weeks you will see the final result of the procedure.
How long does permanent eyebrow makeup last?
There is no single answer to the question of how long permanent eyebrow makeup lasts. As a rule, the time of permanent eyebrow makeup is about 1-2 years, in some cases up to 3-5 years. But there are factors that affect the duration of the result:
- type of dye;
- the depth of the introduction of the pigment;
- post-procedure care;
- correction mode.
Eyebrow care after permanent makeup
In order to be happy with the result of the powder coating, you should know how to care for your permanent eyebrow makeup. Eyebrow care after permanent makeup is an important part of your makeover. The recommendations are as follows:
- Do not wash your face with water or cleansers for two to three days after the procedure. Use micellar water for the face and a cotton swab with chlorhexidine to clean the eyebrows with blotting movements.
- After washing, dry your eyebrows by placing a tissue, clean cloth or soft towel over them.
- For the first weeks after powdering, do not use any eyebrow makeup.
- Two weeks after the procedure, you should not visit a bath, sauna or solarium.
- Regenerating products may be applied to healed eyebrows (as recommended by the master).
- Protect your eyebrows from the sun with sunglasses and headgear.
- In 4-6 weeks you can have your eyebrows corrected with permanent makeup.
Correction of permanent eyebrow makeup
Correction after permanent eyebrow makeup consists of reintroducing the dye under the skin. In this section, we will discuss whether it is necessary and why it is necessary.
Experts say that the correction of permanent eyebrow makeup is highly desirable. Its meaning is that the master has an opportunity to assess the effect of the procedure and, if necessary, to correct deficiencies. Only a specialist can determine whether the eyebrows are healing properly and there are no complications. Sometimes the brightness of the tattoo does not meet expectations of the client and eyebrows look too pale, during the correction the intensity of the pigment can be increased.
It is recommended to come for the first correction in 1-1,5 months, and for the second in 1-1,5 years. It is better to visit the same master, but if you don’t like the result, you can have the correction done by another specialist.
The color of permanent eyebrow makeup
Experts advise to choose the color of permanent eyebrow makeup based on the general “coloring” of the girl. When creating a stylish and modern image, the master strives for the most natural effect. Here are a few recommendations concerning the color of permanent eyebrow makeup:
- For blondes – eyebrows a tone darker than hair; shades of cool, grayish;
- for brunettes – one tone lighter, brown or dark gray will do;
- redheads – one tone darker than the natural hair color;
- broad-shaped eyebrows prefer soft, noncontrasting shades;
- black is better not to use;
- to find the color of permanent eyebrow makeup, you can experiment with shadows
Removal of permanent eyebrow makeup
Unfortunately, sometimes permanent eyebrow makeup is performed by an unqualified master and the quality of the result leaves much to be desired. It also happens that the client regrets the procedure and wants to get rid of the tattoo. For this there is laser removal of permanent eyebrow make-up. It allows removing the pigment completely, as well as lightening it – the number of sessions depends on the final goal. Complete laser tattoo removal can take a year. It is a difficult process in which it is impossible to predict in advance how the paint will behave – especially since most girls come for the procedure after several corrections, during which more and more pigment is added.
