Does it hurt?
Customer comfort is important. Medical grade lidocaine is applied topically 15-30 min prior to treatment and broken skin method is topped off throughout appt every 30 min. You will feel annoying pricks and some sensitivity on the tails during the outline. Most clients say the tweezing of strays is more painful than the actual procedure.
Takes 3 hours incl paperwork and numbing time. I will show differences of density on latex to best communicate the different results available to client. Begins with before picture then shaping and measurements to ensure client is happy with shape and symmetry. All brow artists strive for uniformity but there are natural variances including hair thickness, growth, and face structure that will not change with procedure but are best adjusted. This procedure will result in a natural feather light brow in 3D crisp hairline strokes. Shape can still be dramatized with the use of makeup with ease after treatment is complete.
Nano brows have the abiltiy to heal similar to powder and if a more bold dramatic look is desired without pencil opt for this application.
Numbing and stroking commences with multiple passes to ensure a natural brow. Color is selected based on clients preference skin, undertone and current eyebrow hair color.
Nano-- combination (strokes and shading) ombré and powder brow technique can be applied to achieve a makeup brow, filled in look. Nano needle solo can be used resulting in finer more realistic longer lasting strokes.
Oily skin clients and African American skin are best suited for more of an ombré brow powder selection. Strokes tend to heal muddy or blur together on a true oily.
Cleaning and after care instructions. A 60 min touch up is required 6-8 weeks after initial treatment. This is included in price and is considered mandatory and is just as important as initial appt. Color shape and any pigment not retained can be adjusted for clients preference
Brows will appear darker and more defined immediately after treatment. You can return to work and show off new brows. Some light swelling and redness will subside a couple hrs after procedure. Healing process takes place during the next 4 weeks.
Day 1-10- keep brows dry and clean. Avoid sunbathing swimming sauna or heavy exercise that results in excessive sweating. Scabbing and itching may occur. Do not pick or apply powder in brow. Dry skin may require aquaphor twice daily as well as cleansing with cetaphil. Apply aquaphor before showering to block brows from wetness. Pigment will appear dark this will lighten 80-50%
Client thinks- OMG what did I do?! These are dark and thick!!
*if sunburn is obtained premature sloughing of the skin will occur and pigment will be lost. Results not guaranteed.
Week 2- Scabs have fallen and strokes may not be apparent or 1/2 present.
Client thinks- where did my brows go? They are all patchy!!
Week 3- Epithelial crust will slough off resulting in dandruff that may or not be noticeable. Pigment will settle under skin revealing natural light hairline strokes. Strokes that weren't present before return.
Client thinks- okay maybe they are starting to come back I can use pencil to help my new shape.
Week 4- Strokes have returned. Touch ups in two weeks
Client thinks- yay I love my brows I may want to go darker or fuller. ????
Touch up- any pigment lost will be touched up and color and density will be addressed. Everyone heals differently. After touch up, procedure is considered complete. No touch up results in a 50% completed job.
