Eyebrows
Q1: Can faded permanent makeup eyebrows tattoo be corrected? Or it only can be removed by laser treatment?
Yes, faded eyebrows can be corrected. However, multiple follow-ups might be required if the color is too dark.
Q2: What is the difference between Microblading and Ombré​?
Microblading presents a more natural look whereas Ombré​ technique has more of a feeling of wearing make-up.
Q3: Microblading or Ombré​, which one works better for me?
If your eyebrows do not have a lot of hair and you prefer a natural look, I suggest both Microblading and Ombré​. If there is abundant amount of hair, Mcroblading just works fine. And for those that are on the middle of the scale and happen to like make-up, then Ombré​ is the way to go.
Q4: How soon will I experience shedding of scabs after Microblading or Ombré​?
It will take about six to seven days.
Q5: Why the eyebrows color isn't retained to my like after the initial procedure?
Individuals with oily skin, scar, large skin pore or a blood type of O tend to require a deeper shade. However, it can be corrected and refined after a perfection session, the color will be better retained with that.
Q6: Why do I need to wait for a month or 45 days to receive touch-up on eyebrows?
First off, perfection session (touch-up) should be done at least one month apart, and it’s even better to wait 45 days after the initial session as it takes time for the pigment color to settle into the skin. It might cause over-process if perfection session is done earlier than that.
Secondly, your skin simply needs time to rest and heal!
Q7: How long can the effect of Ombré​ brows and Microblading last?
It will last one and half year to two years, depending on the type of the skin. The degree of color retention varies based on different individuals. Those who have oily skin and large pore retain the color for a relatively shorter period of time. To extend the life of a fresh looking brow, a touch-up is suggested every year.
