Frequently Asked Questions
What is Brow Feathering?
Brow is a procedure categorized under permanent makeup, but unlike traditional cosmetic tattooing, it is less invasive and is considered semi-permanent. Brow Feathering typically lasts 1-3 years, depending on skin type and skincare routine. The procedure is done by using a hand tool with ultra fine needles and each 'hair' is gently etched into the skin, giving an incredibly natural and realistic look.
How long does it take?
For the first Brow Feathering session, the entire procedure should take about 2.5-3 hours. During this session, the brow technician will shape and style the client’s brows for client approval. We then follow with pigment color selection. The client should come in for a follow up visit in order to have any minor necessary touch ups. The second Brow Feathering session takes place after 4-6 weeks after the initial session. This session will take approximately 1 - 1.5 hours to complete.
How long does it take to heal?
The eyebrow area will be slightly red after the procedure and color will appear very dark. This is normal for the procedure and part of the healing process. The color will fade by up to 40% as it heals. In the following days, the eyebrows will continue to be dark and you will notice slight scabbing. Do not pick at the scabs as this may damage the skin and the outcome of the feathered area. The eyebrows will lighten up in color as it heals. No down time is required after feathering procedure. It takes approximately 7-14 days for the brows to heal over, and about 1 month for the color to fully set in. You'll notice the color is very light right after the two weeks after healing; the skin will have an opaque milky looking quality to it. This is known as the milk skin and is common in tattooing. This is due to the the tissue still healing from the inside out even though the surface of the skin is healed. True color will reveal itself once healed.
Is the touch up session necessary?
Yes! A touch up session after 4-6 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during first session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year!
How painful is Brow Feathering?
Let’s face it no one wants to feel pain. It’s our bodies’ response to harm.
But the age old saying is – “Beauty is Pain”
That being said, always remember everyone’s pain tolerance is different. And people feel things different to the next.
Before the service begins, our friendly Brow Specialist applies a medical grade numbing cream to your brows. This is left for a minimum of 30 mins. This will leave your skin initially numb. Due to the constant wiping of your brows by your Brow Specialist, the numbing results will fade over the course of your appointment. At any time you can ask your Brow Specialist to top up the numbing cream with a second numbing solution that is specifically used on broken skin.
A pressure sensation is normal
Please know that we want this process to be as painless as possible and any need to stop and top up numbing cream will not affect the price of your service.
