How is eyebrow embroidery done?
First, a technician will clean up your brow line by removing strays. Then, an soothing cream will be applied to reduce the sensation of pain. Once the desired brows are traced, the technician will use a small blade to cut very small pieces of the top of layer of the skin away and apply the new color in its place. There may be some redness and minor swelling, but that should disappear within a few hours to a couple of days. The colour will likely fade by about 50 to 70 percent in the first two weeks so a follow-up session will be required. It is important to avoid whitening products on the brow area or picking off any scabs that may form, in order to protect the new eyebrows. Because this treatment is semi-permanent, it will require touch-ups from time to time as long as you choose to have them.
Is it safe?
As with any cosmetic procedure, eyebrow embroidery is safe just so long as you are careful about where you go. In order to make sure you get the best quality treatment and minimize your risk for infection, make sure your technician is qualified and certified by a reputable company. Also, ask about sterilization. It is very important that all tools used are completely sterile to avoid the transmission of infectious bacteria. The client should see the packages opened in front of them!
