Eyebrow embroidery is a procedure whereÂ coloured pigment is added to the skin, filling in empty spotsÂ on your brows to give them a full and flawless look.Â Unlike eyebrow tattoos, it is semi-permanent and can last up to two years.Â Eyebrow embroidery isÂ also great for thickening existing eyebrows or darkening them and making them more apparent.
Before the eyebrow embroidery procedure, a technician will clean up your brow line by removing strays. Then, an anaesthetic cream will be applied to reduce the sensation of pain. Once the desired brows are traced, the technician will use a small and thin blade to cut very small pieces of the top of layer of the skin away and apply the new colour in its place. This procedure is entirely safe as long as you go to a reputable salon. Ask about sterilisation to make sure that there is no reuse of tools.
Side effects includeÂ some redness and minor swelling, but that should disappear within a few hours to a couple of days.Â The colour will likely fade by about 50 to 70 percent in the first two weeks so a follow-up session will be required. It is important toÂ avoid scrubbing the brow area or picking off any scabs that may form, in order to protect the new eyebrows.Â As this treatment is semi-permanent, it will require touch-ups from time to time as long as you choose to have them.
