You’ve decided you’re getting your eyebrows done, but you aren’t sure which treatment to choose. Your brow specialist will most likely educate you on your options on your initial consultation, but it won’t hurt to know a thing or two in advance.
To help you out, we’ll talk about the different types of eyebrow embroidery on this post. Read further to learn more.
3D eyebrow embroidery.
Also known as microblading and eyebrow tattooing, 3D eyebrow embroidery is a semi-permanent procedure. You’ll still need touch-ups in the future, but your new brows can last for more than a year. How long the brows stay depends on the depth of the ink on your skin. 3D eyebrow embroidery uses a tiny blade to make hair-shaped cuts or lines on the skin, and these lines are filled with ink. Once filled, the lines look like natural eyebrows. You don’t have to have thick eyebrows to get this procedure done. Even people experiencing hair loss may be able to undergo this procedure.
6D eyebrow embroidery.
Hailing from Korea, this eyebrow technique is made to be a lot finer than 3D eyebrows. The procedure is also more complex as the hair stroke should be exactly the same as your natural brows. More strokes have to be done to achieve thinner, but sharper brows. 6D eyebrow embroidery tends to be less painful, too, as it uses ultra-thin needles. If you want your eyebrows to look finer, this may be the more suitable option for you. As with other eyebrow techniques, the first part of your consultation will be about deciding the shape and colour of your brows.
A newer trend in eyebrow semi-permanent make-up, ombre shading creates softer-looking brows. The technique can be done on its own and can also be combined with microblading, depending on the customer’s preferences. If your skin isn’t compatible with microblading, this is another option that you can look into. The procedure can take up to three hours to complete and can be longer if done with microblading. Your brow technician will work with you in choosing the right style and color for your new brows. You’ll also be able to see how the final results will look like before starting the actual process.
A special eyebrow embroidery technique created by Browhaus, brow resurrection gives you realistic brows with a finer finish in 2 hours or less. It’s also a form of microblading, but its difference is that it uses an advanced technique. Pure vegetable dye is used to color-match the customer’s hair and skin tone. Before starting with the procedure, your therapist applies a numbing cream on the area to ensure your comfort. Your new brows can last up to 18 months, depending on the specific treatment that you choose. Like other techniques, there are after-effects that you may experience, such as slight swelling. But not to worry as these are temporary and should go away on their own.
Regardless of the type of eyebrow embroidery that you choose, always look into hygiene practices first. See how the eyebrow salon ensures safety and cleanliness for every patient. It’s also important to go where you feel most comfortable. Chances are, you’ll be going back for your touch-ups. It helps to have a go-to technician who’s already familiar with your beauty needs and preferences.
