Feather touch brows include micro-pigmenting fine strokes that mimic hair into the outer layers of the skin. The results are very natural and can go undetected.
What is cosmetic eyebrow embroidery?
Cosmetic eyebrow embroidery is a semi-permanent technique using colour pigment drawn onto the skin giving you natural looking eyebrows. The technique used is natural feathering of hair like strokes creating a beautifully designed brow.
Is this the same as an eyebrow “tattoo”?
Yes, and no. Yes it can be considered as a form of tattoo, however, the pigments are distilled water based (opposed to the common oil carrier based pigments in conventional tattoos) thus resulting in a semi-permanent lasting result.
The work involved with eyebrow embroidery is only performed on the skin surface. Thus, making eyebrow embroidery a MUCH SAFER treatment than traditional eyebrow tattoos. The colour can also be adjusted in alignment with the original eyebrow hair colour, which results in a realistic look and feel. Eyebrow embroidery creates the background and fills in the parts of the eyebrows that look empty so that a full and complete look is accomplished. The “3D” effect gives it an added realism to the end result.
Unlike an eyebrow tattoo, eyebrow embroidery does not leave a flat, dull and fake look that tattoos leave behind, nor is it permanent, so you are free to modify the shape of your brows, according to the latest trends.
So why semi-permanent, why not permanent?
Semi-permanent gives you the flexibility to change, down the track. Permanent tattoos don’t. In fact, permanent tattoos tend to fade to a dull blue shade that sticks around like a bad smell. Thus, going semi-permanent offers you the option of continuing with your current shape (by simply doing a “top-up” treatment) or completely reshape your eyebrows.
