How painful is permanent makeup eyebrows?
My name is Alena Pat and I am a permanent makeup artist. In the video, I show an example on a balloon -similarly I work in the client's skin. You can see how gently I work with a permanent makeup machine. And almost no anesthesia is required, because my hand works professionally in the right layers of the skin. Many clients fall asleep during the procedure. I don’t go deep, the coloring of the PMU pigment for lips or eyebrows turns out to be gentle and beautiful in terms of skin healing.
Do Permanent Makeup Powder (Ombre) Brows make you look younger?
Powder Brows, also known as Ombre Brows, can help to enhance your eyebrows and give you a more youthful appearance. By creating a soft, gradient effect, powder brows can give the illusion of fuller and more defined eyebrows, which can help to lift and frame your face.
Additionally, Powder Brows can be customized to complement your natural features and skin tone, which can further enhance your overall appearance. This is achieved through a process of layering pigment to create a subtle and natural-looking effect.
Alena Pat, as a Permanent Makeup artist, may be able to provide additional insights and advice on how to achieve the best results with powder brows.
Do Powder permanent eyebrows look natural?
Permanent brows can look natural when done by a skilled and experienced artist who takes into account the client's needs and uses the right techniques and pigment colors. The goal is to enhance natural brows, create a defined shape and fill in sparse areas with custom color and texture. However, if the pigment color is too dark or does not match the client's natural brow hair color, or if the brow shape is out of proportion, the result may look unnatural.
Are Powder Brows more expensive than Microblading?
The cost of powder brows and microblading can vary depending on several factors, such as the location, the expertise of the artist, and the complexity of the procedure. In general, powder brows tend to be slightly more expensive than microblading.
Powder brows are a semi-permanent eyebrow technique that uses a digital machine to create a soft, powdery effect, while microblading is a semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing technique that uses a handheld tool to create hair-like strokes . (I do not recommend doing Microblading ever because the skin is injured from such a technique and scars appear in the place where the hairs passed, the skin becomes thinner and it will be difficult to correct scars in the future). Powder eyebrows - the technique is more gentle and superficial). Powder brows may require more advanced technology and skill, which can contribute to their higher cost.
On average, Powder brows can cost between $400 to $800, while Microblading typically ranges from $300 to $600 (I do not recommend doing Microblading ever because the skin is injured from such a technique and scars appear in the place where the hairs passed, the skin becomes thinner and it will be difficult to correct scars in the future). Powder eyebrows - the technique is more gentle and superficial.
Recommendations before the PMU procedure
A day before permanent makeup, alcohol and prohibited substances are prohibited.
A few hours before permanent makeup, strong tea, coffee, and vasoconstrictor drugs are not recommended.
With an exacerbation of Herpes - you need to consult a doctor for the appointment of antiviral drugs.
If you have planned permanent lip makeup - active moisturizing of the lips with cosmetic products is recommended a week in advance - this will help more uniform healing after permanent lip makeup.
How is Permanent makeup Powder brows makeup done?
Hi, I'm Permanent Makeup Artist - Alena Pat in Orange County, California. I will briefly talk about the process of applying Permanent Makeup Powder (Ombre) Brows, Lips.
I work superficially in a light technique and inject the pigment to a depth of about 1.5 mm with a highly professional quality machine and needle and high quality pigments (I select pigments individually for each skin type, I studied with the best pigmentologists in the world and know how to choose the highest quality compositions ).
The procedure itself takes place in several stages:
Includes mandatory cleansing (it is advisable to come to PMU without cosmetics - this will help an easier recovery process, because there will be less touches and interactions with the skin)
Marking the future shape of the eyebrows
Selection of shades
Primary anesthesia on the first pass is usually not required and this is better for a future more natural result of the work - and the skin accepts the pigment better and as a result the eyebrows will look lighter and more natural)
Laying the contour and passing through the shape of the eyebrow into the first layer of pigment
Applying secondary anesthesia before the second passage
Direct final introduction of the pigment.
After the procedure, which lasts about 2 hours (in rare cases, 3 hours depending on the individual characteristics of the skin), there is a treatment with disinfectants and soothing agents for quick healing.
How to choose the shape of the eyebrows in PMU?
Hello! My name is Alena Pat and I am an experienced permanent makeup specialist. Today I want to tell you about how to choose a shape for permanent makeup Powder Brows.
The first thing to consider when choosing an eyebrow shape is the shape of your face. For every face type, there is a certain eyebrow shape that suits best. For example, for a heart-shaped face, eyebrows with a small arch are most suitable, and for an oval-shaped face, smoother and rounded eyebrows are most suitable.
It is also important to consider the natural shape of your eyebrows. Permanent makeup should look natural and harmonious with your natural eyebrows. Therefore, if you already have a good shape of your eyebrows, then you can opt for permanent makeup, which will help emphasize their natural beauty.
Hair color also matters when choosing the shape of the eyebrows for permanent makeup. The color of the eyebrows should match the color of the hair to create a natural and harmonious look. If you are not sure which color to choose, then an experienced permanent makeup specialist will help you choose the perfect one.
Another factor to consider when choosing an eyebrow shape is your individual style. If you often play sports or swim, then it is better to choose a more stable brow shape that will not wear off when in contact with water.
Finally, do not forget that choosing a form for permanent makeup is a long-term decision. Therefore, it is important to think carefully about your choice and contact a permanent makeup specialist who will help you choose the best option and offer sketches so that you can imagine how your eyebrows will look after the procedure.
If you have eyebrow asymmetry, do not despair. I, as an experienced permanent makeup specialist, know how to solve this problem. During the procedure, I pay attention to the smallest details in order to create a symmetrical shape of the eyebrows. To do this, I use various methods, such as measuring points on the face and using special tools to create the correct shape of the eyebrows.
However, before the procedure, I always check with the client what shape of eyebrows he wants to receive. Ultimately, the choice of the shape of the eyebrows remains with the client, but I try to offer options that will equalize the asymmetry and make the eyebrows more symmetrical.
In addition to offering sketches, I also consult with the client to understand what type of eyebrow is best for him. It is important to understand that each person is unique and has their own individual eyebrow shape. Therefore, I always try to take into account the characteristics of each client when choosing the shape of the eyebrows.
As a result, when carrying out permanent makeup, I always try to achieve the best result, taking into account the individual characteristics of the client and his wishes, but also do not forget about the limitations associated with the correction of asymmetry.
What skin types are suitable for Powder Brows?
Powder Brows, also known as Ombre Brows or cosmetic tattooing of the eyebrows, can be suitable for various skin types. However, the success of the treatment can depend on several factors, including the skin type of the individual.
Here are the different skin types and how suitable they may be for powered brows:
Normal skin: People with normal skin can be good candidates for powered brows, as their skin tends to be well-balanced and not too oily or dry.
Dry skin: People with dry skin may need extra moisturization before and after the treatment to ensure that the ink is absorbed evenly. Dry skin may also cause the pigment to fade more quickly.
Oily skin: People with oily skin may require additional touch-ups as the ink can sometimes be more difficult to adhere to oily skin. The oiliness can also cause the pigment to blur or fade over time.
Combination skin: Combination skin types may have areas that are both dry and oily. In this case, the technician will need to assess the skin and provide recommendations for treatment.
Sensitive skin: People with sensitive skin may need extra care during the procedure to avoid any irritation or inflammation. It's important to consult with a professional to ensure that the treatment is suitable for your skin.
How painful is permanent makeup eyebrows?
The level of pain experienced during a permanent eyebrow procedure can vary from person to person. The procedure involves using a needle and depositing pigment into the area, which can cause some discomfort.
However, many people who have undergone permanent eyebrow procedures report feeling only mild to moderate discomfort during the process. Some people describe the sensation as a slight burning or scratching feeling, while others compare it to the sensation of getting a tattoo.
To minimize discomfort during the procedure, I may use a local anesthetic to further reduce discomfort.
Overall, while there may be some pain or discomfort associated with getting permanent eyebrows, it is generally considered to be a tolerable and manageable experience
How long does Powder Brows permanent makeup brows last?
Permanent eyebrow makeup with Powder lasts from 1 to 2 years if made with Mineral Pigments (check with your master). Eyebrow tattoo lasts forever. Regular brow tattoos last a lifetime, but with powder brows, the ink doesn't penetrate as deep into the skin.
Please keep in mind that because the pigment lives so close to the top of the skin, many patients require a touch up about once a year.
Who Should Not Do Permanent Makeup?
Skin conditions: People with certain skin conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis, may need to avoid powered brows as they can exacerbate the condition and cause discomfort.
Blood-thinning medication: People who are taking blood-thinning medication may need to avoid powered brows as they may bleed more during the procedure, which can affect the final result.
Pregnancy or breastfeeding: Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may need to postpone getting powered brows until after they have finished nursing, as the ink can potentially be harmful to the baby.
Allergies: People who have allergies to ink or other cosmetic products may need to avoid powered brows, as they can cause allergic reactions.
Healing issues: People with a history of healing issues, such as keloid scarring, may need to avoid powered brows as the healing process may be more difficult and the results may not be as expected.
It's important to consult with a licensed professional and discuss any health concerns or conditions you may have before getting powered brows. I can assess your individual situation and make recommendations for the best course of action
Care Tips for Powder Brows and Ombre Brows
To care for your Power brow (Ombre brow) permanent makeup, it's important to follow proper aftercare instructions. Here are some tips on how to care for your permanent makeup in sunny California:
Avoid Sun Exposure: Sun exposure can cause your permanent makeup to fade faster. It's important to avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds, and saunas for at least two weeks after the procedure. After that, you can use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to protect your brow area from the sun.
Keep the Area Clean: After the procedure, it's important to keep the area clean and dry. Use a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser to wash your face and avoid getting the brow area wet for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
Don't wash over the brows roughly during the healing period. If you want to do it, the best way is to clean it with a cotton pad and some water, neglecting the treated area. And, after day 10, you can wash your face the way you always do it.
Avoid Scratching or Picking: It's important to avoid scratching or picking at the brow area, as this can cause scarring and affect the healing process.
Avoid Sweating: Avoid excessive sweating and exercise for at least a week after the procedure, as sweat can cause the pigment to fade.
Avoid Makeup: Avoid applying makeup to the brow area for at least a week after the procedure, as this can interfere with the healing process.
Touch-Ups: Touch-ups may be necessary to maintain the desired look. Your technician will advise you on when to schedule a touch-up appointment.
Overall, it's important to follow proper aftercare instructions to ensure the best results and longevity of your Powder brow (Ombre brow) permanent makeup.
What are the risks of permanent eyebrows?
Like any cosmetic procedure, permanent eyebrow makeup comes with some risks. These risks include:
1. Infection: This risk can be minimized because I use sterile disposable needles and equipment and practice good hygiene.
2. Allergic Reactions: Some people may be allergic to the pigments or dyes used in permanent eyebrow tattooing, which may cause an allergic reaction. Allergic reactions can range from mild to severe and may include itching, swelling, and redness. In this case, you need to contact your doctor.
3. Scars: Some people may be prone to scarring and develop keloid or hypertrophic scars. But I use surface application of coloring pigment in Powder eyebrows (I do) and this risk is minimal, unlike eyebrow tattoos (which I do not), where the dyes are placed deep into the skin or Microblading (I do not do microblading), where the skin is cut with a blade and then scars form.
4. Color change. The color of Powder Brows can fade or change over time, especially if the person is exposed to the sun or uses certain skin care products. Therefore, I recommend using a sunscreen with SPF +50 on the permanent makeup area and it will look better for longer. Therefore, when you change the color, you come to the correction, and I supplement the formula to the remaining color in the eyebrows.
5. Uneven Appearance: If the client has facial asymmetry, permanent makeup can make it more visible. Therefore, we analyze the natural asymmetry of the client, and making a sketch, I strive to correct and bring to harmonious forms individually for each client.
6. Regret. Finally, it is important to remember that permanent brow makeup is exactly what remains for a short time (if it is minerals) or a long time (if organics, inorganics or hybrids have been added). If a person changes their mind or no longer likes the look of permanent makeup, removing it completely may be difficult or impossible. In some cases, the pigment may completely come out of the skin.
7. One of the most common risks faced by Permanent Makeup Artists in the USA is that the master introduces a lot of White in the pigment composition and after that the Titanium Dioxide never comes out of the skin on its own. I never take formulations in Eyebrows that contain White - Titanium Dioxide. I use some of the safest pigment formulations and carefully check every name in every Pigment formulation. I guarantee that White will never hit your eyebrows. In the photo you can see how the white dissolves in the water and you can know exactly what happens in the browns where the white is contained. That's why I never take white pigments for Powder Brows for my clients. I use the safest brow pigments.
To minimize risks, follow the recommendations
Can old Permanent makeup be fixed?
Greetings to all who are interested in permanent makeup! I am a Permanent Makeup artist Alena Pat, and I am pleased to welcome you to the pages of this article.
Today we will talk about the overlap of the old permanent makeup and, specifically, the client's eyebrows. I am sure that many of you have come across the fact that old permanent makeup can look unpresentable and even ruin the overall look of the face.
In this article, I want to talk about how I propose to solve this problem. Based on photos of old permanent makeup eyebrows, I will make a suggestion on how to cover up old makeup and create a beautiful, natural eyebrow shape.
I hope that my experience and knowledge in the field of permanent makeup will help you get useful information and learn how to care for your eyebrows so that they always look perfect.
How does the healing process of Powder Brows or Ombre Brows work?
Powder brows and Ombre brows are two popular types of permanent makeup for eyebrows. The healing process for these types of eyebrow tattoos can vary slightly, but generally follows a similar pattern.
Immediately after the procedure, the treated area will appear darker and more intense than the final result. This is because the pigment needs time to settle into the skin and some of the color will naturally fade during the healing process.
In the first few days after the procedure, the eyebrows may feel tender, slightly swollen, and may appear red. This is a normal reaction to the trauma caused by the needles used during the procedure. The technician may advise you to apply a cold compress (not ice) to help reduce swelling and discomfort.
Around the second day, scabbing and flaking may occur as the skin begins to heal. It's important to avoid scratching or picking at the scabs as this can cause the pigment to be pulled out of the skin and result in patchy or uneven healing.
Over the next few weeks, the pigment will continue to settle into the skin and the color will soften and lighten. The final result of the Powder or Ombre Brow may take up to six weeks to fully reveal itself.
During the healing process, it's important to avoid excessive sweating, swimming, and exposure to sunlight as these factors can cause the color to fade prematurely. It's also important to follow the aftercare instructions provided by the technician to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of infection or complications.
Overall, with proper aftercare and patience, the healed result of Powder brows or Ombre brows can be a natural-looking, long-lasting solution for enhancing the appearance of eyebrows.
Are Permanent Makeup Powder Brows (Ombre Brows) like a tattoo?
Yes, Powder Brows or Ombre Brows are a form of cosmetic tattooing that allows for a more dense, vivid, and natural-looking brow. They are created using special pigments that are inserted into the skin and can last up to two years. This means that you can enjoy your beautiful and well-groomed brow look without the need for daily makeup application.
