COSMETIC TATTOO FAQ'S
Thinking about getting your eyebrows tattooed but not sure whether feathering, Ombre or Powder Brows and not sure which treatment is for you?
EYEBROW FEATHERING & MICROBLADING.
For sparse brows, eyebrow feathering provides greater volume and texture. The eyebrow feathering technique is designed to look like real eyebrow hairs. Also called eyebrow Microblading or hair stroke eyebrows, along with a number of other similar names, this is one of our clients’ favourite eyebrow treatments.
WHAT IS FEATHERING?
At ASPARA, we offer a safe, long-lasting alternative to eyebrow Microblading called nano feathering. This is a machine applied method which does not use blades or anything that can damage the skin or discolour in the skin.. Our brow feathering designs are custom created to suit the unique natural brow formation of each individual client, to compliment natural looking, soft and feathery brows.
Your cosmetic tattoo artist Bec will be able to guide you towards a certain technique according to your brow goals. There are a variety of eyebrow tattoo effects possible, with some of the main techniques detailed below.
WHAT ARE OMBRE BROWS?
Perfect for those who don’t like the gaps in their natural brows, and want a soft shadow fill to enhance and balance your natural eyebrow shape. Ombré eyebrows can be super soft and misty or high definition and anywhere in between, depending on the brow goals of each client. The ombré effect blends out to a soft pixelated fade towards the front so is perfect for clients who need to restore lost volume and length.
This option combines the ultra realistic hair strokes effect created by nano feathering, with a soft blend into an ombrè shadow brow to create the perfect combination of definition meets fluffy brows.
HOW LONG DO EYEBROW TATTOOS LAST?
Also known as semi permanent makeup, cosmetic eyebrow tattoos can last anywhere from 6 months to 3 years before a refresh treatment is recommended. The longevity of a cosmetic tattoo depends on how quickly your body metabolises the ink, what ink is used for the procedure, and the technique it is applied. Nano feathering is the most delicate technique, created with tiny micro hair stroke technology so it does fade faster than an ombrè brow, however, it is much longer lasting than microblading, when correctly applied.
IS IT PAINFUL?
Once booked in you’ll receive an online link to order your numbing product straight from our recommended compounding pharmacy. This product is medical grade so you will not feel any discomfort – free naps included!
WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE PROCESS.
Having an eyebrow treatment takes time and before the pigment is applied Bec will draw outlines on your face which she will follow. The drafting phase is where the client’s brow design and shape is measured and drawn up on the skin before tattooing begins. The treatment takes 2 hours, including brow design, colour selection, numbing, the tattoo process and aftercare advice.
EYEBROW TATTOO RECOVERY TIME.
Please be aware that during the healing phase (1-2 weeks) your eyebrows will look much darker than desired. We are always more conservative with the first treatment, so that there is room to go darker or bolder at the touch up. A perfecting visit is recommended at 4-8 weeks (AUD 150)
