What is brow micropigmentation?

Brow micropigmentation, also known as eyebrow micropigmentation or Permanent Makeup Brows (PMU Brows) refers to a cosmetic procedure where semi-permanent pigments are implanted into the skin of the eyebrows. It is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure aimed at enhancing the appearance of your eyebrows by depositing pigment into the skin of the eyebrows using a specialized micropigmentation machine.

Unlike microblading, which creates individual hair-like strokes, micropigmentation typically involves shading or a pixelated technique to fill in and define the eyebrows.

Brow micropigmentation offers a convenient and effective solution, providing a flawless makeup applied-looking result that will boost your confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does brow micropigmentation last?

On average, brow micropigmentation typically last between 1 to 3 years. Some individuals may notice that their Ombre brows remain vibrant for longer (some up to 5 years!), while others might require touch-ups sooner. Touch-up sessions help maintain the brows’ appearance over time.

The longevity of brow micropigmentation, like other semi-permanent cosmetic procedures, can vary based on several factors, including your skin type, aftercare, sun exposure, skincare routine (and ingredients used) and the frequency of touch-up sessions.

How should I prepare for my Brow Micropigmentation appointment?

  • Avoid alcohol, caffeine, painkillers, and blood-thinning medications for at least 24 hours before your appointment. This is in order to reduce pinpoint bleeding during the procedure, which can dilute the pigment.
  • Discontinue the use of skincare products containing active ingredients (such as retinol, hydroquinone, vitamin C, AHA/BHAs, salicylic acid, and topical acne medication) for at least 2 weeks prior to the treatment. This is to avoid sensitivity and increase your comfort.

How does Brow Micropigmentation differ from traditional Brow Microblading?

While Microblading involves creating individual hair-like strokes, brow micropigmentation focuses on a soft, shaded look. It is similar to a makeup finish, offering a fuller appearance without the daily application.

Which should I get: Brow Microblading or Brow Micropigmentation?

Choosing between Brow Microblading and Brow Micropigmentation depends on the look you are aiming for and your skin type.

  • Brow Micropigmentation give a more defined, makeup-like appearance, perfect for those desiring a fuller or gradient brow look. Both techniques have their unique benefits.
  • Brow Microblading offers a natural, hair-like finish, ideal for those looking to fill in sparse brows or enhance their natural shape.
  • Oily Skin: Microblading on oily skin may lead to the pigment spreading slightly, causing the strokes to appear less crisp over time. A brow micropigmentation style referred to as Combination brows might be a more suitable choice since it combines the principles of microblading and shading to create natural-looking eyebrows with defined strokes and soft shading. Microblading involves creating hair-like strokes using a manual hand tool, while shading involves adding depth and dimension to the brows through soft shading
  • Dry Skin: Dry skin tends to retain microblading pigment well, with the strokes maintaining clarity. Both methods can work well, but microblading might offer more defined results.

If you’re uncertain about your preferences on your brow journey, we advise booking a consultation with our skilled micropigmentation technicians. This will allow you to explore which option best complements your esthetic goals.

What different styles of Brow Micropigmentation do you offer?

There are several different styles of brow micropigmentation that we offer, each offering a unique look and esthetic. Here are some common styles:

Ombre Brows: Ombre brows feature a gradient effect, with lighter shading at the inner corners gradually transitioning to darker shading towards the outer edges. This creates a soft and natural-looking finish, similar to the ombre effect seen in hair colouring.

Powder Brows: Powder brows involve shading the entire eyebrow area with a soft, powdered effect. This style is achieved by pixelating pigment into the skin, creating a filled-in and defined look that resembles the appearance of makeup powder.

Combination Brows: Combination brows combine microblading and shading techniques to create natural-looking eyebrows with defined strokes and soft shading. This style offers the best of both worlds, combining the precision of microblading with the depth and dimension of shading.

The best style for you will depend on your individual preferences, facial features, and desired esthetic. Our expert technicians will listen to your preferences and help you determine the most suitable style for your needs.

Is the procedure painful?

Most clients report little to no discomfort. To ensure maximum comfort, a topical anesthetic cream is applied before your treatment, and a secondary numbing is used throughout the procedure.

How long is the recovery period after getting Brow Micropigmentation?

There is no downtime associated with this treatment and you can go right back to your day as long as you follow aftercare instructions.

The pigment will initially appear darker or more vibrant, but it will soften and blend to a natural hue within 2-3 weeks. You will receive comprehensive aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results. The full healing process, where the skin completely regenerates, can take up to 6 weeks.

Can I wear makeup after a Brow Micropigmentation procedure?

It is best to avoid applying makeup directly on the brows for at least a week or until the area has fully healed to prevent infection and ensure the best pigment retention.

How do I care for my brows post treatment?

 

Your expert microblading technician will give you personalized aftercare instructions based on your unique skin. Below are some general guidelines to avoid to ensure the longevity and quality of new eyebrow:

 Things to avoid post procedure:

  • Avoid touching or rubbing the area
  • Avoid applying makeup over the area
  • Avoid excessive sweating
  • Avoid direct sun exposure
  • Avoid picking or peeling the area
  • Avoid certain skincare products
  • Avoid swimming pools / hot tubs / saunas
