What Is Cosmetic Enhanced Eyebrows?
There are various techniques to enhance eyebrows.
* Classic eyebrows where the entire eyebrow is shaded one color.
* Microshading eyebrows where the shading begins at the tail of the eyebrow and the color graduates to lighter shade as it moves to the front of the eyebrow.
* Nanoblading is applying brow strokes to the front of the eyebrow or the entire eyebrow.
In each procedure a cosmetic technician applies semi-permanent makeup to your eyebrows. It’s a type of cosmetic tattoo procedure.
How Are The Various Eyebrows Done?
The technician uses a PMU (permanent makeup) hand held machine to achieve fuller or denser brows. The hand held tattoo machine creates repetitive pixels using semi-permanent pigment ink. Nanoblading uses a thin needle to create eyebrow strokes that look like natural hair strokes.
How Does It Feel While Receiving The Treatment?
Remember it is a cosmetic tattoo. Numbing cream is applied throughout the process of shading the eyebrows to keep you comfortable during the eyebrow procedure. Each client experiences will differ depending on levels of discomfort during the procedure. It depends on the individual’s pain tolerance and skin sensitivity.
