Eyebrows: What to Expect

Be your own kind of beautiful

You can expect beautiful, natural results with permanent brows

Our tools are designed for gentle accuracy, so your makeup won’t look harsh on your face.

SofTap®, microblade or powderbrows can be anything you wish them to be. A soft fill, hair strokes in your brow, solid fills to emulate your pencil, half or parts of your brow, even a brand new, completely full set of eyebrows. If you can think of a way to draw them, I can do them.

The procedure itself is not painful, without anesthetic it has been said to feel like tweezing—and with anesthetic it is said to feel like nothing at all. Tell me about your sensitivity and we will decide whether or not you need anesthetic for your eyebrows.

Eyebrow procedures can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours to complete, depending on the difficulty of the design and the amount of work involved. A complete reconstruction of a missing eyebrow, complete with beautiful hair strokes, may take 1-2 hours, but a simple soft fill-in of existing hair may only take 20-30 minutes.

Depending on the method we chose, your brows may appear darker than the color you originally chose, don’t worry this is perfectly normal. Expect some slight puffiness and/or irritation, some pinpoint bleeding, and after a little while, some dryness. Please see our Post Treatment Instructions for Eyebrows.

During the first 2-4 days after you have had treatment, the color will gradually appear darker. This is due to the natural oxidation process that takes place in the skin. After oxidation is complete, the color usually returns close to the color that first appeared 5 minutes after it was implanted. This is perfectly normal; brows heal to their proper color during the healing process. Sometimes when healing, color will become dry and flake off, leaving the proper color in its place. Sometimes there is no color in its place—in this case you need a touch up.

Fading is completely natural, brows usually require some form of touch up within the first few weeks after implantation. I will schedule a follow-up visit for you approximately 4-6 weeks after your initial visit. At that time, a determination will be made as to whether or not further color enhancement is necessary.
Further long term touch ups will depend on three factors:
– choice of color
– long term care
– how the color was applied.

We highly suggest that you choose a light to medium application for your eyebrows. This looks the most natural. It is far better to have a natural, undetectable eyebrow and refresh the color as needed rather than have a dark, unnatural eyebrow. If your eyebrows require a dark color, we advise a light application of the dark color in order to maintain a natural appearance. Just as permanent hair color needs to be refreshed, so does your permanent cosmetic procedure.
