Perhaps you’ve recently seen trending posts on social media, with hashtags like #eyebrowsonfleek and #iwokeuplikethis. These individuals who posted probably tried eyebrow embroidery to get the ideal eyebrows they’ve always desired.
Many celebrities and influencers use eyebrow embroidery to attain the “no makeup” appearance has increased in recent years.
While the results of the flawlessly arched and defined brows are frequently shared, information and guidance for the healing process are scarce online. This is likely because the necessary aftercare is commonly seen as the hassle of the aftereffects.
So let’s take the initiative and discuss some things you wish someone had told you before getting your eyebrows embroidered!
EYEBROW EMBROIDERY CAN HAVE VARIOUS IMPACTS
With the help of tiny, disposable needles, the brow artist embroiders colour pigment beneath the skin’s surface to create natural-looking eyebrows. By doing so, you may make your brows appear thicker and give them the ideal shape for your face.
The shading technique produces a misty or powdery impression, while the microblading technique produces hair-like strokes that imitate your natural brow hairs. These two basic types of eyebrow embroidery techniques can be used to create a variety of styles.
EYEBROW EMBROIDERY IS DIFFERENT FROM EYEBROW TATTOO
Although both procedures involve putting pigment under the skin, eyebrow embroidery and eyebrow tattooing are different. Because the pigments in needlework fade over time, it is not considered a permanent colouring method like a tattoo. Because eyebrow embroidery uses hand-drawn techniques to simulate the appearance of real brow hairs, it is more realistic-looking and thicker than traditional eyebrow tattoos.
Additionally, several types of ink are used for eyebrow tattoos and eyebrow embroidery. Traditional eyebrow tattoos can fade over time, turning blue or green, whereas eyebrow embroidery stays true to the original colour.
EYEBROW EMBROIDERY IS DELICATE AND SAFE PROCESS
The entire process will be finished in around 2 hours. Your brow specialist will first shape and trim your eyebrows to the desired look.
After that, a numbing cream will be used for 15 to 20 minutes to ensure comfort. Then, using single-use needles, the pigments will be injected beneath your skin.
You can request that more numbing gel be applied at intervals during the operation to keep it comfortable.
Because it’s a delicate procedure, it’s crucial to have your eyebrow embroidery done by a trained and qualified brow artist to reduce the chance of infection.
SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR EYEBROW PENCIL THE YEAR
Usually, eyebrow embroidery lasts between 12 and 18 months. To keep your embroidered brows in place, you can do a touch-up once a year as the colour will progressively fade. Eliminate the eyebrow pencil from your daily cosmetic process to save time.
IT’S NORMAL TO SEE SWELLING AND DARKER EYEBROWS AT FIRST
There might be some redness and swelling following your treatment, but it should go away the following day. Your freshly embroidered brows will appear darker and bolder on the second and third day, but that is normal and a natural part of the healing process.
The same reaction can also happen during eyeliner embroidery.
Your brows will begin to scab on Day 3 and should stop scabbing by Day 10. Depending on the kind of skin, the colour will fade by between 40 and 60 per cent. To fill in any gaps, your brow artist can schedule a touch-up appointment.
