OMBRÉ BROWS

 

 

What are Ombré Brows?


Ombré Brows is a semi-permanent makeup tattoo that gives a gradient effect to the brows, providing a soft powdery finish. The result mimics the appearance of more conventional brow makeup. 

 

How Long Will It Last?


Ombré Brows will last 1 to 3 years, depending on the client’s body, skin type, lifestyle, and proper aftercare.

Here are some examples that will cause your semi-permanent tattoo to fade faster:

 

  • Thicker Skin
     

  • Sun exposure
     

  • Exfoliants
     

  • Iron deficiency


 

Does It Hurt?

Pain levels vary from person to person. Numbing gel will be applied after the first pass (breaking the skin) on each brow and during the Ombré Brows procedure. 
 

How Long Does It Take to Heal?


It will take about 7 to 10 days for the brows to heal. Your brows will still be richer and darker in color. Thus, it is recommended to wait at least 4 weeks to see the true color (the color will lighten by 30 to 50%) of the fully healed brows. Be aware that the color will vary quite a lot during the healing process before reaching the final color that you agreed upon with your Artist.

 

Healing Expectation

The healing rate differs from one person to another. During the healing process, you will typically expect these following:
 

  • Freshly done brows will appear dark and much thicker than expected for the first few days and will gradually fade about 30 to 50%.
     

  • During the healing phase, expect scabs to happen. This will last 7 to 10 days for them to peel off. 
     

  • Some skin may retain color better than others, so we cannot guarantee a precise effect or color. 

     

Complimentary Touch-Up

As your brows will begin to heal during the initial session, the intensity and thickness will fade, and the desired color shade will start to appear. A complimentary touch-up is included with the Ombré Brows procedure and is mandatory to fill in any areas needing correction or modifications.

The second session is honored 6 to 8 weeks after the first session and cannot be rescheduled. Otherwise, it will be charged as an additional touch up. 


 

Eyebrow Correction 

If you had your brows previously done by another Artist and/or your brows end up turning to a greenish/blueish or orange/red color over time, you will be required to have an eyebrow correction, which is an extra $50 from the regular price of Ombré Brows. The initial session may and must be a complementary color to neutralize your brows.   

Please keep in mind, you must have 50% or more of the semi-permanent tattoo faded for this procedure. Otherwise, you must have a saline removal done before attempting to receive an eyebrow correction.

This procedure is a process. If you are required to neutralize your brows prior to adding the desired pigment,

multiple sessions may be required, and you will be charged for the extra fees.



Contraindications

Ombré Brows is suitable for most clients of all ages and lifestyles. However, it depends on your overall health, medical conditions, and skin quality. These need to be taken into consideration for the safety and best possible outcome of the semi-permanent tattoo.

Whilst the above list is by no means exhaustive, it will give you a good idea of the types of contraindications relating to semi-permanent makeup. For some of the above, you may proceed with the treatment with only a written authorization from your Doctor before we can proceed. Please do your research to verify if you can proceed with the treatment or not. 

You know your health condition better than anyone else. If the above list does not provide any conditions you may have, verify with your Doctor and email us prior to booking.

 


Pre-Treatment Procedures

  • Avoid any supplements or medications with blood-thinning effects such as Advil, Midol, Fish Oil, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, etc. for a week leading up to the appointment as it may increase pain sensitivity and excessive bleeding.

  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine 24 hours before the appointment as it can affect excessive bleeding.

  • No suntanning/excessive sun exposure, brow waxing, tinting, microdermabrasion, derma planning, laser treatment, and chemical peels 2 weeks prior to the procedure.

  • No facial 4 weeks before the procedure.
     

  • No Botox/filler around the brow area 4 weeks prior to the procedure.

 


Post-Treatment Procedures

  • Apply the given ointment 2 to 3 times a day for up to 7 to 10 days of recovery.

  • Do not touch, pick, peel, or pull on the dry flaky/scab as it may lead to irritation, infection, and loss of pigment and/or scarring.

  • Do not apply makeup on the brows while it is healing.

  • Do not expose brows to suntanning/excessive sun exposure, microdermabrasion, derma planning, laser treatment, and chemical peels until the area has healed.

  • No facials or other face beauty treatment is done for a week.

     

Touch-Ups 


It is important to take note that as time passes, your semi-permanent tattoo will begin to fade. Thus, touch-up is beneficial to maintain the desired shape and color of your brows. Normally, a touch-up is recommended every 1 to 2 years.


Touch-up prices are for existing clients only.
