Let’s talk about eyebrows. We have spent our lives tweezing, waxing, threading, and filling in, trying to get that perfect arch or hide patches where the hair does not grow. Aside from taking care of the odd unibrow moment now and again, most of our eyebrow care is merely maintaining how we want our brows to look.
There are circumstances where your natural eyebrow might not be quite what you want it to be, though. A variety of factors can influence what your eyebrows look like and how they grow, including age, eyebrow care habits, and scarring. If you are looking for a more filled-in look, have patches in your natural eyebrows, or simply do not want to deal with the upkeep of your eyebrows, there are a few options you can consider for getting your perfect eyebrow look.
Let us tell you more about microblading, 3D hair strokes, and powder filled brows, three of your options for permanent makeup in Minnesota.
Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo that can get your eyebrows back on point and looking fantastic. With this technique, a handheld machine or manual tool is used by the cosmetic artist to mimic natural hairs on your eyebrows. This method is minimally invasive and usually only requires a topical numbing cream around the eyebrow area.
Microblading results last up to three years, but will fade because of the shallowness of the pigment in the skin. There are many technicians performing microblading in Yuma, AZ. Please research your Artist to ensure you get beautiful, natural results with minimal skin damage.
3D Hair Strokes
3D hair strokes involves a cosmetic tattooing procedure. A consultation allows you to work with a cosmetic artist, and together you will determine the shape of your new brows. Once this happens your brows will be pencilled in, numbed, and pigment will be added with a tattoo machine and small needle. This allows the area to look as though it is filled with natural hair. The cosmetic artist uses this special technique along with up to three different kinds of pigment, creating a multi-layered effect.
This 3D look can be achieved quickly and easily, and there are fewer side effects than with other cosmetic procedures. After the procedure, your brows will be tender and the color of your brows will be a bit darker, but they will lighten up between 10-14 days after the treatment.
3D brows can be done to resemble natural brow lines and thicknesses or can be customized to fit what you want your eyebrows to look like. The results are incredibly realistic, and many people are choosing the 3D brows cosmetic procedure over other options. This brow tends to be less invasive to the skin than microblading, as blading is cutting and many times can lead to excess scarring.
Powder Filled Brows
The powder fill technique of cosmetic tattooing typically lasts longer than the 3D hair stroke/microblading style. This is because the needle used in powder fill brows goes deeper into the skin than it does with 3D hair strokes. If you are looking for a longer-term eyebrow tattoo in the Twin Cities or Yuma, powder fill brows may be the best eyebrow option for you.
Powder fill brows may also be a better option for more mature patients, as the hair stroke method tends to fade faster. The powder fill method goes deeper into the skin using small dots of pigment, gradually built up to look like natural eyebrows. This method has a very defined shape, but does not have to look blocky or heavy when done correctly.
Hombre brows are a very light powder or hair stroke brow that starts out light and gradually darkens toward the tails. Many times the artist will lightly shade over the hair strokes creating a “pixelated” or “stardust” look.
This style is a combination of hair strokes and soft, fine shading called micro shading or whip shading. This is an extremely popular service right now as it creates a soft, beautiful fill in between the tattooed hair strokes. This type of brow does not last as long as a traditional powder brow.
