How does it work?
It is performed by using a specialized machine to infuse the pigment under the eyebrow skin area without cutting open the skin. It looks as if you have powdered makeup on your brow area. At NOVA DERM INSTITUTE we use the safest pigments carefully selected to infuse in the skin. Our pigments don’t turn green or red after a few months post procedure. You can still get MRI and other medical procedures required for your health and well-being safely, because of the low metal content in our pigments.
What to expect during your treatment?
At the consultation, the shape and color of pigment is carefully selected to match the individual. Next step is to apply numbing cream. This helps give you the most comfort during your treatment. We always ask the individual to show us a picture of what shape they are looking for, and based on our experience and their face shape, choose the best possible eyebrow look for our valued clients.
What to expect after your treatment?
Brows might look very dark, sharp, and overdrawn. The eyebrows area might feel tender and slightly swollen. If this happens apply some Aquaphor ointment to soothe the area. The permanent makeup has been applied to compensate for fading, if they look much darker than you normally wear your brows, stay calm, the color will fade over the next week.
What are the benefits of this treatment?
The result is very natural looking, it doesn’t scar the skin and is considered to be the safer method of eyebrow permanent makeup compared to microblading techniques.
Does it hurt?
Here at NOVA DERM INSTITUTE we apply a numbing cream for 15-20 minutes to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. You may feel slight discomfort or some level of scratchy feeling during the treatment. Almost everyone finds the discomfort manageable.
What are the side effects?
Almost everyone experiences a slight swelling, redness around the eyebrows and a tight feeling of the skin right after the treatment. This will disappear within 24 to 48 hours. The full healing process takes on average between 5-10 days. But the true color of the pigment is only visible after 1 full month.
How many treatments will you need?
You will need two treatments four weeks apart to see the best results.
How to prepare for the treatment?
Avoid tanning one week prior to your appointment. Stop Retin-A and any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products near brows two weeks before and after appointment.
Is this treatment permanent?
Ombré brows last longer than microbladed brows, usually up to 1 year. Touch ups are generally encouraged once a year.
Who can get this treatment?
Ombré powder brows are great for any skin type, unlike microblading, which may not work well on oily skinned beauties. Your eyebrow will look fuller, more defined as well as effortless.
