Having been around since the 1930′s eyebrow tattoos have become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today. This is a relatively easy procedure that simply shapes, fills and defines any gaps that you may have in your eyebrows. In the past it was a matter of injecting vegetable dyes under your skin. Today, it’s a bit more sophisticated but leaves you with astonishing results.
Eyebrows are a distinctive part of your face. They have the ability to dramatically alter the way that you look. Anyone who suffers from hair loss will tell you that this procedure gives them the freedom to look good without having to worry about the way they look all the time. For this reason, some people call this a mini face lift. Fortunately, it has more benefits and less risks than invasive cosmetic surgery though.
While eyebrow tattoos are considered permanent, they will fade over time, especially if exposed to sunlight or exfoliation. For this reason you may need to go back to “top up” after the initial process is done. You may also need to have a few sessions in order to achieve the right shade and density. This will need to be done again after several years so that you will be able to maintain the same definition that you were able to experience initially.
Before you get eyebrow tattoos you will want to talk to the practitioner about the shape and color you’re after. Don’t go with something trendy but go with something natural that works with your features and pigmentation.
The procedure itself will take 30 minutes. During this time you will feel as though your eyebrows are being plucked unless a local anaesthetic or soothing cream are used to reduce this discomfort. This is because pigment is introduced under your skin with a very fine needle. Afterwards there will be some swelling, redness and scabbing. This needs to be allowed to heal naturally.
Take some time to think about eyebrow tattoos. Make sure that you thoroughly research all of your options. This is vital because not all professionals work the same way or are at the same high standard. You will find that this is a safe procedure that will last for years, leaving you to feel confident all the time. It’s just a matter of finding a practitioner with a proven track record and taking care of yourself afterwards too.
