POWDER BROWS

The latest and greatest trend in the cosmetic tattoo industry. This technique is created with a digital machine and designed to implant pigment throughout the brow in order to create a soft powder finish. The term ‘Powder’ refers to the brows being softer and lighter through the front of the brow while being more full and defined through the tails. Powder Brows are better suited to (but not limited to) oiler skin types. If you love the way your brows look after tinting/henna or with a little bit of brow powder then the Powder Brow look is perfect for you!

 

FAQ

WHAT IS COSMETIC TATTOO

Cosmetic tattooing, sometimes referred to as semi permanent make up, permanent make up and micro pigmentation, is the process of implanting colour beneath the surface of the skin using a sterile needle to balance, correct, create or enhance the facial features of the eyebrows, the eyes and the lips producing the appearance of make up on the skin.

HOW LONG IS MY TREATMENT

Two and a half hours is allocated for most powder brow procedures. Most of this time is spent during the consultation process accessing health, lifestyle, shape and placement. Once your procedure begins the skin may be tattooed for 30-60 minutes depending on the chosen area and technique used.

IS COSMETIC TATTOO SAFE?

Your qualified technician will administer each new procedure using only disposables, sterile disposables and needle cartridges in an approved skin penetration premise. All pigments are of the highest quality iron oxide base and contain FDA approved ingredients for cosmetic use.

DOES COSMETIC TATTOOING HURT

Most clients are quite comfortable during their procedure. Effective topical aesthetic gels are used to numb the skin before and during your procedure to ensure maximum comfort the entire time. You may find the first pass scratchy on the skin until we apply your secondary aesthetic. About 10% of clients may be hypersenstive to their procedure.
We do not recommend the use of Emla prior to your procedure due to the ph of this product as this can change the PH of the skin and make it rubbery in texture proving difficult to get colour into the skin.

The initial healing process for normal skin is complete within 5 – 7 days and up to 12 days for mature skin, however, unseen to the naked eye the skin will still be healing itself for up to 65 days after your procedure. The true colour and saturation will appear once a full cycle of desquamation has happened within the layers of the skin, meaning when your skin has gone through an entire process of shedding dead skin cells from the surface of the skin and colour pigment is no longer in the epidermis and only remains within the dermal layer of the skin where the colour will appear cooler.

WILL I HAVE IMPERFECTIONS?

Internal (genetics) factors, external factors, your health including medications and hormones, as well as, swelling in the skin or bleeding are some factors that may affect colour retention in the skin. Having your perfection appointment is paramount in completing your procedure to perfect colour (going darker), saturation (going deeper) and dimension. (adding a second colour or hairstrokes)

IS A STENCIL USED TO DRAW YOUR SHAPE?

No, we create our own stencil unique to your own features and is specifically measured and drawn on to your skin and approved by you before commencing your procedure.

WHEN WILL MY COSMETIC TATTOO NEED A TOUCH UP?

Your tattoo procedure is completed over two appointments. Your perfection appointment is to be completed within 12 weeks after your initial procedure to assess colour, shape and saturation. This ensures you will go longer in the future in between colour boosts. From there you can expect a touch up every 1-5 years depending on the original techniques used, your health and lifestyle choices and technician. For example, hairstrokes or a shaded ombre brow will require more maintenance than a block brow as less pigment is implanted into the skin or if you swim in saltwater regularly or work in the direct sun daily.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

You can find the cost of your cosmetic tattoo on our pricelist page. After your health and colour consultation is successful we require a $100 deposit to hold your appointment date and time.
