Prior to every semi and permanent eyebrow treatments a thorough consultation is conducted, this is usually done as part of your initial treatment, though this can be done before if you prefer. We feel the consultation is a very important opportunity where you can discuss with your technician your desired end result and a full medical history will be conducted. By looking at your individual face shape, features and structure Debbie uses a pencil and callipers to measure up and draw on your brow shape so you can see what you are going to get before we proceed. Our highly skilled technician prefers to work with your natural shape so it is recommended that you keep your brows in your most natural shape, waxing prior to your treatment is allowed but this should be done a minimum of 48 hours before any treatment. It is also recommended that you refrain from any tanning treatments before so we can see your natural skin tones. Once we have agreed on the perfect shape we than move onto pigment selection. Debbie has an extensive range of globally acclaimed pigments for you to chose from and can be mixed together to create a perfect tone to suit you and your skin tone. By swatching the different pigments on the skin you will be able to see how the colour will heal and we do not proceed until you are completely happy with the design and colour selection.
The Nouveau Contour machine is a specialist machine that is designed to to suit facial and medical treatments. It works at a low frequency to allow the pigment to be applied gently into the skin using advanced fine needling techniques. Debbie is also fully trained in Micro-blading, if this is your chosen application the hand tool is used. The pigment is applied only as deep as the second layer of skin unlike traditional “tattooing” techniques. You should not feel any discomfort during the procedure and people often associate it to a light vibration tapping across the skin. The actual procedure normally takes around an hour but this varies from person to person. Immediately after your brow treatment you should expect the area to look around 40-50% darker tan the colour you have chosen in your consultation, as the skin heals this will start to fade within 3-5 days.
The Top Up
A second appointment is usually required 4-6 weeks after your first treatment. This is a complementary procedure where we go back over the brow and boost any areas that need extra pigment implanted. It is completely normal to require a top up as everyones skin heals in different ways, although not everyone requires a top up, Permanent cosmetics is a two part procedure so it is always advised to come back to the clinic for your technician to look over your brows and preform your retouch if needed.
