Neat and well-groomed eyebrows are always at the height of fashion. With this statement, of course, according to most modern women, perhaps that is why they decide on eyebrow tattooing: the hair method or shading. The first of the announced methods has been practiced in cosmetology relatively recently, but has already managed to perfectly prove itself. With its help, specialists can not only give expressiveness to facial features, but also significantly adjust the appearance of eyebrows.
What is hair tattoo and its varieties
Hair tattooing is a drawing of colored pigment using a special machine (or needle) of individual hairs, from the roots to the ends. Each element is created individually, which ensures the formation of the most natural result.
Specialists distinguish two main categories of correction of this type. So, permanent makeup by the hair method can be carried out in the following ways:
- Eastern (Asian or Japanese) technique. The most preferred type of correction, which involves drawing each hair, taking into account individual characteristics (different lengths and widths, at the required angle).
- European technology. It implies a more unified approach, helps to create hairs that are the same in parameters under a standard bias.
The main stages of the procedure
Permanent eyebrow makeup with the hair method can take from 40 minutes to 2.5 hours. A lot depends on the technique in which the cosmetologist draws, his experience, as well as the volume of the proposed work, because in some cases an easy correction is necessary, and in other eyebrows are created from scratch.
Before the procedure, you should not seriously injure the skin with other cosmetic procedures, it is also not recommended to use alcohol or aspirin, as well as any other blood thinning pills.
On the day of tattooing, decorative cosmetics should not be used, but ordinary hygiene procedures should be given increased attention.
The first step before the correction is to determine which result you need to move to. To do this, the master creates preliminary sketches with a pencil. As soon as an action plan is outlined, the specialist applies a special cream to the eyebrow zone, which reduces pain. Unfortunately, there are reviews that he is not able to completely eliminate the pain, most likely, this is due to the depth of the introduction of the composition.
10 minutes after applying local anesthesia, the master proceeds to perform basic manipulations. In addition to choosing the color of the paint, it is necessary to pay special attention to the thickness of the needle, because the naturalness of the final result depends on this indicator. Then you can start drawing hairs to a depth of 1.5 millimeters.
Healing (restoration) after tattooing with a hair technique lasts about 10 – 14 days. The first two days are recommended to be spent on a short vacation, without visiting crowded places and without leaving home. This is due to the fact that numerous small wounds at the site of puncture of the skin can secrete an insignificant amount of sucrose. In addition, the eyebrows swell a little, may turn red. Also, patient reviews confirm that among the possible side effects there are unpleasant, even painful sensations. To eliminate them, it is recommended to periodically pat the skin with a cleaning cotton swab dipped in an antiseptic composition. Such measures will help prevent the occurrence of inflammatory processes or infection. To reduce puffiness, it is recommended to use dry ice or cool compresses.
After a crust forms on the eyebrows, the care scheme needs to be slightly adjusted. So, several times a day, it should be carefully lubricated with a nourishing cream that accelerates regeneration. In no case is it allowed to independently remove the formed crust, it should gradually come off on its own.
Among other things, during the rehabilitation period, one should not be exposed to the open sun, visit a solarium, sauna, baths and other similar establishments.
You should limit the use of decorative cosmetics for eyebrows, as well as the mechanical effect on them.
Correction of results
About 40 – 60 days after the first hair tattoo procedure, a specialist should be visited again to correct the results. During the manipulations, you can correct the shape and bend of the eyebrows, add a new color to them.
Of course, such a technique is not available to every patient. Before it should be held a preliminary consultation and identify possible contraindications, among which are:
- cardiovascular diseases;
- epilepsy and nervous system disorders;
- oncology, AIDS, hepatitis and other serious diseases;
- allergy to the paint used to draw hairs;
- low blood coagulation;
