Questions to ask your specialist before tattooing your eyebrows

Posted on May 23, 2016

Many women are on the opinion that wearing makeup makes them feel more confident in themselves. They agree though that applying and removing makeup every day takes time and since it is the era of rush, time is the most precious thing. The best way they can save some time in the morning is to resort to cosmetic tattoo. However, many of them fear going to an Australian skin clinic in Brisbane and have their eyebrows tattooed, but this only happens because they are not well informed or do not know what questions to ask their specialists before undergoing this procedure.

 Who can undergo this procedure?

This is probably the first question that pops up in women’s mind the moment they first hear about cosmetic tattoo. Many of them who are in their 70s for instance are on the opinion that only younger women, who have not turned 35 yet, can have their eyebrows tattooed, when in fact they could not have been any more wrong. Women of all ages can go and undergo cosmetic tattoo procedure, whether they are in their 20s, 40s or 80s.

Does it hurt?

It is worth mentioning that many specialists working in reputable beauty clinics try to make this procedure as painless as possible by using good anaesthetics. After the anaesthetic is applied, the specialist can start their work. Pain is felt differently from one individual to another. While some claim that they did not feel anything, others say that they felt only a slight discomfort that was similar to tweezing the brows.

How many appointments are needed?

You will only need two appointments. During the first one, the specialist will take a better look at your eyebrows and take some photos. Afterwards, the cosmetic tattoo procedure begins. The second appointment is needed in order to correct any imperfections that might have occurred during the healing process.

How long does it take to heal?

The skin does not need too much time to heal compared to the healing period in the case of other cosmetic or medical procedures. In fact, if you feel up to it you can go back to work the same day. Another great advantage of tattooing eyebrows is that you do not need to wear any bandages in order to hide those specific areas. It is important though to bear in mind that no additional makeup should be applied in that area for at least two days. The itching sensation will stop after nearly one week, but you should still wait for at least three weeks before attending the second appointment.

How long will it last?

The lasting period of cosmetic tattoo depends on the individual. In the case of permanent cosmetic tattoo, it is recommended to come back to the beauty clinic at least once a year in order to maintain that fresh colour. If you do not do annual top ups, the colour of your eyebrows will fade away. The effect might last between 9 and 16 months and a half, depending from one individual to another.
