So you’ve taken the courage and just completed your first brow tattoo. Congratulations! You’re on the road to more sleep ins and ‘brows on fleek’ compliments – do they even say that anymore?
But before we get to that, there’s a few things you should know on how to take care of your new eyebrows and prolong it’s lifespan.
We’ve got some hot tips from one of our Eyebrow Specialists, Kyla Daly from The Brow Parlour, to help us understand the importance of brow aftercare. Note: All versions of cosmetic brow tattooing are semi permanent and will fade over time. So this is totally normal!
Kyla recommends that you refresh your cosmetic tattoo roughly between 9-12 months. This will vary from client to client.
Refreshing your eyebrows will fill in any gaps and darkening strokes that may have faded after the first treatment.
Microblading has the ability to look completely natural when blended amongst existing hair or none at all. The strokes mimic real brow hair and are individually customised to suit your face shape.
However, don’t be afraid to let your eyebrow specialist know what you’re after. Communicate this and your specialist will be able to provide you a better consultation and their suggestions.
After the initial two sessions, Microblading will last anywhere between 9-12 months depending on the skin type. Drier skin types tend to retain the pigment better than oilier skin types. Clients who are heavy users of “active” ingredients in their skincare such as retinol, AHA and vitamin A, C and E are not recommended to undergo this treatment unless they completely avoid those products near their brows.
Clients with oily skin types are recommended a combination of Microblading/ shading (Combination Brow) or simply a shading (Ombre Powder Brow).
