Is there pain involved?
Ombre brows procedure is relatively pain-free. This is because the treatment is done with an anesthetic that numbs the area. The numbing cream is applied onto the brows before any needling starts, and the artist will wait for it to kick in, which is about 15-20 minutes.
What will cause my permanent Brows to fade faster?
Skin type. Oily skin types will fade faster, due to the constant oil production which causes the oil to ‘push out’ the pigment from the skin faster. Sun exposure. The sun can damage the skin and cause the pigment to fade faster. Apply SPF 30+ daily on the brows to slow fading! Skincare ingredients. Vitamin c, retinols, Retin-A, AHA, and BHA based products exfoliate the skin and will cause faster fading if applied on the eyebrow area. Exfoliants. It’s best to avoid chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or intense scrubs on the eyebrow area. Lifestyle habits. Smoking will cause the pigment to fade faster.
Bleeding during the procedure.
Bleeding will cause the pigment to be pushed out, leading to unideal healed results. (That’s why is important to avoid exercise and avoid caffeine at all costs (coffee, DECAF, caffeinated teas, Coke, Diet Coke, chocolate, energy drinks, etc.) the day of your appointment.
