Eyebrows frame the face and provide definition for other facial features. They enhance the beauty of your face by changing your facial appearance and bringing out your natural features. Sparse or missing eyebrows can be restored or enhanced with one or a combination of techniques. From a soft gradient look, to a more defined shaded look these techniques are suitable for all skin types.
Powder and Ombre brows are gaining popularity among the younger client and already a favorite with the mature clientele. The look is more of a traditional "makeup" look but unlike the tattooed brows of the past, these techniques are softer and much more natural. Both techniques are accomplished by layering pigment with a digital/rotary device in soft layers using a range of different needles to arrive at the saturation desired. The difference between both is powder being more uniform layers with soft edges while ombre being layers in a gradient-like fashion.
Oftentimes these techniques are used as coverup for previous pigmented brows, because many times due to poor workmanship or retention this is the more suitable method for color corrections and depositing pigment into the skin.
This procedure, like all permanent makeup procedures, requires a level of skill and expertise. Make sure to properly research your artist, his/hers credentials and before/after/healed work to help ensure a favorable outcome. Unfortunately due to the popularity of this service, the industry has been saturated with PMU trained individuals whom have very little experience tattooing and a lot of damage is being done to clients skin. So proper research is advised with this and all PMU procedures.
The degree of discomfort during the treatment depends on several factors: anesthetics used, the client’s threshold for pain, and skill of the technician. From a scale of 1-10, clients report initially anywhere from a 3 to 4, and once the second anesthetic is applied discomfort is reduced even further.
Now tho all procedures are permanent, they are subject to fading over time. This technique requires touch-ups anywhere from 12-24 months apart. Fading is client specific and there have been instances where some clients require touch-ups much sooner than others.
While we strive for perfection on every procedure, results cannot be guaranteed to be perfect after the initial procedure due to the many factors affecting both integration and retention of pigments in the skin. Permanent and Reconstructive Cosmetic makeup procedures are directly affected by the skin that they are performed on.
Factors ranging from medications, sun exposure, smoking, hormones and age all contribute to fading and must be taken into account during pre and post procedure.
A finishing session must be scheduled between 6 to 8 weeks after your initial procedure to attain the best results and to keep your procedure looking its best.
Please refrain from altering the post procedure protocol advised, use only ointments and creams provided or recommended by Avarté.
Light redness is normal but if a red ring appears around the area, seek medical attention.
