Eyebrow embroidery is a new beauty fad in Canada, although it is already huge in Asia, Australia, and the United States. Continue reading to discover more about the procedure and determine whether it is safe for you.
What exactly is brow embroidery?
According to Susan Aujla, general director of New Serenity Cosmetics & Esthetics in Burnaby, British Columbia, eyebrow embroidery is also known as eyebrow hairline stroke. Aujla has also undergone the operation. It is semi-permanent, unlike brow tattoos, and can last up to two years. This procedure fills up empty spaces on your brows by applying coloured pigment to the skin, giving them a complete and flawless appearance. In addition, this method may provide a natural look with a feathering technique since it uses pigments that are properly matched to your brow colour. After drawing out the appropriate brow area, the entire area is filled with hair-like pigments. Eyebrow embroidery is also useful for thickening or darkening existing brows and making them more visible.
How does brow embroidery work?
First, a professional will remove strays from your brow line. Then, to lessen the sensation of discomfort, an anaesthetic cream will be given. After tracing the desired brows, the technician will use a little blade to remove tiny bits of the top layer of skin and replace them with the new colour. According to Aujla, the blade is exceedingly thin and sharp, akin to an Exacto knife. There may be some redness and swelling, but this should go away within a few hours to a few days. However, the colour will most likely fade by 50 to 70% in the first two weeks, necessitating a touch-up session. To safeguard the new brows, avoid cleaning the brow area or picking at any scabs that may appear. Because this procedure is semi-permanent, you will need touch-ups if you choose to have them.
Is it secure?
As with any cosmetic operation, brow embroidery is risk-free if you take precautions. A typical session can cost between $300 and $600. If you find a salon selling it for considerably less, make sure it isn’t too good to be true. Ensure your technician is qualified and accredited by a recognised firm to ensure you get the most remarkable quality treatment and limit your risk of infection. Inquire about sterilisation as well. All tools must be fully sterile to avoid the transfer of infectious microorganisms. ‘No needles or blades are reused,’ Aujla explains. ‘The client should be able to view the products that have been opened before them.’
Who is it intended for?
According to Aujla, eyebrow embroidery may be done on anyone, although it is typically done on patients who have thinning brows, bald patches in their brows, or who have over-plucked. Brow hair eventually stops returning, so if you plucked away your shape in a desperate attempt to achieve the once-fashionable, very thin brows, eyebrow embroidery could be the solution for you. It’s also good for people who have alopecia.
How can I ensure that I get the greatest results?
Eyebrow embroidery is typically performed on ladies with fair skin and light brow hair. The most prevalent complaint is that the brows are too black. Pre-select a colour with your technician to provide the greatest possible results. Remember that the colour will fade over the next two weeks. Another typical issue is that the brows do not match the curve of the brow muscles, causing the newly embroidered brow to look out of place when they flex. This is unlikely with a trained professional, but since the colouring will endure for several years, there’s no harm in being extra cautious. Before proceeding with the appointment, examine yourself in the mirror after the technician has sketched the required brow. Make a silly face and flex those muscles to evaluate if you’re satisfied with the positioning. It will be too late to modify once the treatment is completed, so it is better to be cautious than sorry.
