Very few people are blessed with perfect eyebrows. For the rest of us, there is the constant struggle to find a way for our eyebrows to look as good as possible, not always finding the right pencil, powder or gel to achieve the best results. If that is your case, it may be time for you to get some permanent makeup. When you are ready to consider eyebrow tattoos, contact the experts at Eminence Medical Aesthetics in Princeton, New Jersey, to schedule your initial consultation.
Why Get Eyebrow Tattoos?
While you should not take the decision to get a tattoo on your face lightly, you should not be scared or threatened at the prospect. Long gone are the days of chunky, Sharpie-filled-in looking eyebrow tattoos.
What Is Feather Touch Tattooing?
Feather touch tattooing is a semi-permanent treatment that places pigment into tiny hair strokes by using a special tool. It is applied in hair strokes to eliminate the block look you get of color. It is different from other tattooing techniques because it is not done with a machine, but with a micro-blade.
Is It Permanent?
This form of eyebrow tattoo is not considered permanent because it fades out to natural skin after a period of time and does not discolor as often happens with a traditional cosmetic tattoo. Being semi-permanent, it has truly in-depth variations in tone and depth of color. Each shade is selected according to your hair and skin color to ensure a seamless blend with your natural brow.
What Happens during the Initial Consultation?
During your first appointment, your permanent makeup artist will study your face to determine the correct brow shape. Using a white pencil, she will blank out the hairs she wants to remove and use a darker one to draw in the ones she would add permanently. By looking at yourself in the mirror after this exercise, you will be able to get a pretty accurate impression of the final result. That way, you can be certain you like the look before the semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo is applied.
How Can You Find a Good Permanent Makeup Artist?
Here are some ideas:
- Take a look at her portfolio to gauge her experience
- Social media is a good place to read client reviews
- Check out her training, which should be accredited by an official association
- Ask to be shown around the clinic to check that it’s clean and hygienic
How Long Does an Eyebrow Tattoo Last?
Cosmetic tattooing, unlike body art tattooing, is much more superficial to the skin. To get good results, most people require two sessions. The second session is needed because, depending on your skin type, your skin may push out a bit of ink, and in some places, the hair strokes will not be as saturated as needed. Generally, it lasts for one to three years depending on your skin and lifestyle.
Don’t stay on the sidelines waiting for your eyebrows to miraculously fill up. Getting an eyebrow tattoo will give you the best frame for your face. Contact the experts at Eminence Medical Aesthetics in Princeton to schedule your initial consultation today.
