Embroidery is a method whereby fine strokes are penetrated into the skin for a hair-like finish. The appearance is completely natural and blends with or without hair along the brow bone. New nano-technology is used in the pigments which allows the colours to stay in place regardless of how thin or light the strokes are applied.
Embroidery only penetrates the very top layer of the skin so there is no need for a tattoo machine or loud vibrating needles, a metal hand tool is used. The tool is placed on the surface of the skin and gently moved forward and up to flow pigment into the skin – various lining and shading techniques are used.
Natural shades are easily achieved. Within a week of your first treatment the colour will fade significantly and over the next four weeks can continue to fade as much as 70%. This is considered an extremely positive occurance as it allows you time to reflect on your shape and colour. After this period the second phase of “Embroidery” is carried out. At this point any changes you would like to make are discussed. Once again you can expect the colour to fade, but to a much lesser degree. Four weeks later and you can decide if you would like us to go over the brows again for more definition… It’s totally up TO YOU.
The procedure is virtually painless and has been likened to the sensation of eyebrow plucking and not as severe as eyebrow threading. Whilst undergoing the procedure, anesthetic is continually applied to decrease any pain or discomfort. The side effects are simply a little redness around the skin area which fades away in a matter of hours and can easily be camouflaged with make-up. The Embroidery specialist has total control over the speed and if for any reason you feel uncomfortable, your therapist will simply slow down and lift off. This also makes it almost impossible to make a mistake.
Embroidery design is not determined by fashion trends. The therapist firstly analyses the shape of the face. There are six recognised face shapes – Round, Heart, Long, Oval, Square and Diamond. The perfect brow for your face will be drawn on for you to analyse carefully. Adjustments will be continually made until we are sure that you are 100% happy with the shape we design for you. The Embroidery technique is then carried out. After the first artful strokes are applied your opinion is once again sought. If you are unhappy whatsoever with the outcome you need not worry. We can remove strokes or alternatively you can decide not to proceed with the treatment.
