DIGITAL (NANO) BROWS- WHAT TO EXPECT

Phase One

This phase lasts for the first few hours following the treatment. You may experience redness, swelling, skin sensitivity and oozing plasma (clear body fluid). These symptoms usually settle down within a few hours and should not last more than 24 hours. At this stage, eyebrows will look thicker and darker than the final result. *Its important to blot dry the oozing plasma

with a clean cotton ball on the first day, as it may cause thicker scabs that could affect color retention*

Phase Two

Your eyebrows will still look darker and thicker during the first four days following the digital brow procedure. You will begin to feel the treated area drying out. The upper layer of skin starts to build a scab preparing to flake off. *Moisturize your eyebrows 2-3 times per day with after care product provided. Be careful not to apply too much product*

Phase Three

This phase consists mainly of flaking and peeling off of the top layer of the treated area which usually starts at day 5 and lasts for 3-5 days. The top layer of skin should peel off in fine sections (if client is correctly following aftercare instructions) Please note, some skin types tend to prolong this phase. The eyebrows tend to be itchy during this phase, Do not scratch or pick. keep them moisturized and lightly tap if needed.

Phase Four

This phase is called the milky film and usually happens in the 2nd week after all peeling is complete. In this phase, brow color appears light, grayish and hair strokes seem cloudy and dull. This happens because a fine layer of dead skin is still covering the color underneath, but this will naturally flake away within a few days and the color starts to bloom.

Phase Five

This is the last phase of the healing process of your digital (nano) brows which usually lasts 3-6 weeks. In this stage, color becomes more vibrant and the hairline strokes look more clean and crisp. This is a very important phase for your skin to fully heal and repair itself. A minimal touchup session may be  needed for any patchy spots or fading. Correctly following aftercare instructions is key to optimal results. 

TOUCHUP

Permanent Makeup is almost always a two or more step process to achieve optimal results. During the healing process, the treated area is trying to heal and repair itself and the lymphatic system is trying to push out all external particles to prevent contamination. This explains why the color implanted the first time is not perfect after healing. In many cases, the area treated may fade unevenly, may be very pale or hairline strokes may not be visible. It takes AT LEAST 4 weeks for the skin cells to regenerate, settle in and pigment to reappear. *All skin is different and can respond differently during healing and retaining the pigment. 

Once the treated area is completely healed, any changes or additions that need to be made will be done at your touchup appointment. Proper care following your procedure will ensure the best results and your investment in YOU will bear long lasting, beautiful results. 

EYELASH EXTENSION PRE AND POST INSTRUCTIONS

Post:

  • You may get eyelashes wet after application

  • Avoid hot steam sauna, tanning or swimming in the first 48 hrs

  • Avoid oil based facial products, creams or cleansers on or around the eye area

  • Be gentle with your lashes! Don’t pick or pull at them. Avoid rubbing eyes and sleeping on them.

  • Fill-ins will be needed every 2-3 weeks to maintain beautiful full lashes. PLEASE NOTE, IF THERE IS OVER 50% LOSS OF LASHES ON EITHER EYE, THE FILL IN PRICE WILL BE INCREASED TO ACCOMMODATE THE EXTRA WORK AND SUPPLIES REQUIRED. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOUR INVESTMENT.   

EYEBROW MICROBLADING VS DIGITAL BROWS (NANOBROWS)

Digital brows are done with a digital/rotary machine that moves an ultra thin needle up and down, depositing pigment into the skin. This method requires more precise work from the artist, deposits pigment deeper into the epidermis and heals quicker in most cases. This longer lasting method is suitable for ALL skin types. 

Micro blading is a technique done by a hand tool with a row of tiny needles gathered in a blade form, in which pigment is deposited by slicing the of skin. Pigment is deposited into the superficial epidermal layer and is better suited for normal to dry skin types. 

Digital brows are less traumatizing, have mild to no bleeding and less discomfort as the ultra fine needle smoothly penetrates the skin without cutting or slicing.

Micro blading is more traumatizing and has mild bleeding 

 as the technique relies on skin cutting/slicing.

Digital brows will appear darker and thicker in the first 3 days (30-40% darker than the final result), after peeling, strokes become lighter and softer. The color heals less ashy and more close to natural eyebrow hair color. Complete healing takes up to 4-6 weeks. hairline strokes will appear thin and crisp similar to natural eyebrow hair. This procedure lasts longer and touch ups are less likely needed. 

Micro blading will look its best in the first 3 days, hairline strokes will appear thin and crisp. After peeling, strokes will be thicker, more blurred and the color will appear more ashy. Complete healing takes up to 4-6 weeks and up to 3 Touch up appointments may be needed for optimal results.
