Eyebrows notably frame the face and accentuate a woman’s naturally beautiful features. In our efforts to achieve that lush, perfectly arched and sculpted brow, it seems like we’ve exhausted all means. Eyebrow embroidery – a more permanent solution to thin or sparse brows – is a worth while treatment that certainly promises results.
Eyebrow embroidery is an eyebrow enhancing procedure whereby dark, tinted pigments are injected via a thin blade into the surface layer of the skin using single hair-like strokes. It is done via a manual blade so strokes are sharp and crisp, giving the natural appearance of fullness and shape to the eyebrows.
Unlike eyebrow embroidery, eyebrow tattooing is a permanent procedure where these pigments penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, leaving it with more staying power. On the other hand, eyebrow embroidery is semi-permanent and lasts for a good two years.
The procedure for eyebrow embroidery takes between an hour to two hours, and at least one touch up session will be needed to retain the final result.
What Are The Benefits?
For a start, you no longer need to spend time in the mornings touching up your brows; it saves you one tiresome job from your makeup routine. Amidst the countless brow products you’ve gone through to find the perfect solution – it is already here for you. It gives you full, lush and exceedingly natural looking brows; and given the longevity of eyebrow embroidery, it is definitely a good investment to make.
As long as you visit an established and licensed beauty salon with trained professionals, the procedure is safe. Tools used are sanitized and blades are changed with every customer, so all the equipment is sterile and there is no risk of infection.
Be sure to have a consultation session with your technician before the procedure to select your desired colour and shape, while also discussing the potential side effects which typically include temporary swelling and redness. Pain wise, a topical numbing cream is applied to the brow area beforehand; so though you might feel slight discomfort, it is almost painless.
Post Procedure Care
The healing process is relatively quick, taking approximately one week – but final results may not be visible until several weeks after your appointment because of how the skin heals.The dye also has to be well taken care of, so within the first week, try not to engage in any physical activity that would cause the brows to come into contact with water and consequently fade.
On your touch up appointment, an artist might go over the original strokes to darken fine lines, tweak the shape, or build up visible sparse brows by layering thinner strokes over.
