FAQ

Cosmetic tattooing is the process of implanting hypoallergenic colour pigment into the dermis of the skin. Cosmetic tattooing procedures are performed to enhance the natural features of the face by using single-use sterile needles to mimic the appearance of hair strokes or makeup. Iron oxide pigments are implanted in the skin and gently fade over time. Fading allows shape or colour changes to the area in the future. The semi-permanent tattoo usually requires a touch-up every 1-3 years. Regular touch-ups are highly recommended.

 

Cosmetic tattooing is also called:

  • Permanent makeup
  • Semi-permanent makeup
  • Micropigmentation
  • Feathering (eyebrows)
  • Microblading (eyebrows)
  • People who want to save time and effort from having to do their eyebrows each day!
  • People with unsteady hands
  • People who have thinning, sparse, or no eyebrows
  • People with allergies to conventional makeup
  • People who have an active lifestyle as cosmetic tattooing eliminates eyebrows and eyeliner from wiping or sweating off
  • People with alopecia or any form of hair loss
  • People with poor eyesight
  • You must be 18 years old or older to receive any form of cosmetic tattoo treatment at The Brow Room.
  • As a precaution, The Brow Room will not perform cosmetic tattooing procedures on pregnant or nursing women.
  • It is recommended that you wait at least 3 months after receiving Botox treatments around your eyebrow area.
  • You must stop taking Accutane at least 6 months prior to receive a tattoo treatment

A topical anesthetic cream and gel are used for numbing before and during each procedure for maximum comfort as pain tolerance varies from person to person. Your comfort is my top priority and additional anesthetic may be applied for longer to ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Many of my clients even fall asleep! Not kidding!

Yes! Your safety is my #1 priority. At The Brow Room, all needles, cotton swabs, cotton balls, bibs, pigment cups, and gauze are all one-time use and are disposed of immediately after procedure. Working areas are disinfected with hospital-grade agents and tools are disinfected and sterilized using a steam autoclave. All sharps items are discarded and stored properly in a sharps container.

Skin colour, overtones, and undertones vary from client to client which is why pigments are customized to fit each individual person’s needs. We will swatch a few colours on your forehead to show you what the pigment will look like on your skin. From there, we will choose a colour together. You are involved in each part of the process every step of the way!

If you have over-oily skin, the hair strokes from the eyebrow feathering/microblading cosmetic tattooing technique may appear softer and have a more ‘powdered’ look due to the production of oil.

If you have very few or sparse hair, your tattoo may not appear as 3D as it would for someone with more natural eyebrow hair.

If you are a regular smoker, your pigment may fade or lighten sooner.

If you are iron-deficient or Anemic, you pigment may fade or lighten sooner as your body will metabolize and absorb certain minerals from the coloured iron oxide pigment.

Please note: MOST clients are happy after their initial session and complimentary touch-up. However, some clients may require more than one touch-up session to achieve their ideal look. Results cannot be guaranteed. Additional touch-up sessions are charged accordingly.

Cosmetic tattoos are semi-permanent and will fade over time. Regular touch-ups are highly recommended every 1-2 years. Results and the life span of the cosmetic tattoo cannot be guaranteed as each person’s immune system, lifestyle, skin type, and care of the tattoo are unique. Each cosmetic tattoo requires a minimum of 2 visits to obtain the ideal look. The initial tattoo session and the first touch-up session (2 visits in total) are included in the price. Additional sessions will be charged accordingly.

My client is the only other person who is allowed in the procedure room. This eliminates any distractions, as I will need to focus 100% of my attention on you!

Firstly, we will go over the consultation at the beginning of your appointment. You are welcome to bring in reference photos of eyebrows that you like or don’t like. You will have a chance to ask all of your questions during the consultation. I will measure your eyebrow area, analyze your facial shape and features, and create an eyebrow design that is suitable for your face using cosmetic pencils. Once you are happy with the design, a topical numbing agent will be applied. After the numbing takes effect, we will start the procedure! The entire procedure from consultation to the end of the procedure should take approximately 3 hours. We will review aftercare instructions together and schedule your touch-up session 6-8 weeks later.

You MUST email clear photos of any previously tattooed artwork prior to your appointment to info@thebrowroom.ca. The Brow Room cannot guarantee results of cover-ups of other artists’ work. I must see and approve the previous tattoo before any work is performed on top of an existing cosmetic tattoo. Sometimes, cover-up treatments are not possible if the existing tattoo is too dark, bold, thick, or dense. There may be limitations to what we can achieve when covering an old tattoo, therefore we need to set realistic expectations.

Eyebrows (Microblading/Feathering) are tattooed by implanting hair-like lines of pigment into the skin by using a sterile manual tool.

  • Purchase Aquaphor for your aftercare – this is available in the skin care section at any drug store
  • Have something to eat and stay hydrated before your appointment
  • Feel free to bring in reference photos if you like a particular look
  • Feel free to come in with your eyebrows filled in with makeup as you normally would so we can see the type of look you prefer
  • Pluck or trim excess eyebrow hair 2-3 days beforehand
  • It is highly recommended that you wait at least 3 months in between any Botox treatments around your eyebrows to receive an eyebrow tattoo treatment
  • Do not drink alcohol 24-48 hours before your tattoo appointment
  • Do not consume coffee before your procedure
  • Do not take aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (this thins the blood)
  • Do not take Fish Oil or Vitamin E one week prior (natural blood thinners)
  • If you are taking Accutane, you must stop your medication at least 6 months prior to your appointment
  • It is recommended that you avoid sun or tanning bed exposure for at least 2 weeks before and after your procedure
  • Avoid taking blood thinning medication

Yes! Your safety is my #1 priority. At The Brow Room, all needles, cotton swabs, cotton balls, bibs, pigment cups, and gauze are all one-time use and are disposed of immediately after procedure. Working areas are disinfected with hospital-grade agents and tools are disinfected and sterilized using a steam autoclave. All sharps items are discarded and stored properly in a sharps container.

It takes approximately 3 hours. This will include the consultation, design and colour selection, preparing and numbing of the skin, and the microblading procedure.

Most clients will only need two (initial procedure and complimentary touch-up session scheduled 6-8 weeks apart) to reach their desired look. You may notice that your eyebrows might be lighter or have patchy areas after the first session. Don’t worry! This is why one free touch-up session is included! This allows us to add more density and colour later on. However, everyone heals and retains pigment differently and at different rates, which is why results cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, some people may need or want an additional touch-up after their free touch-up session. Additional touch-ups are charged accordingly.

Your eyebrows will look great! They will look a bit darker and bolder than expected during the first few days. This will lighten 25-40% during healing. Redness and swelling is minimal. Aftercare needs to be followed properly. You can return to work or school as normal.

Each person’s skin may respond or heal differently. This timeline acts as a guideline only.

Day 1-2: The tattooed area will appear dark and bold, but don’t worry – this is normal! You may experience some swelling and the area may feel similar to a sunburn.

Day 3-5: Eyebrows will start to feel itchy and may appear thicker in texture as natural exfoliation begins. Do not pick at your eyebrows.

Day 5-7: There should be minimal scabbing. If you do have any scabbing, the skin will begin to flake and peel off. Do not pull any of the scabs off.

Day 7-10+: New skin underneath will appear softer and lighter for a few weeks. The true colour will appear during the fourth to sixth week of healing.

“There’s only one part of a woman’s body
that she doesn’t want thinner. Eyebrows.”

Eyebrow Aftercare

Proper aftercare of your eyebrow tattoo very important. Please read the following instructions carefully.

During the first week, the tattooed area will appear significantly darker, larger, and sharper than what is expected for the final outcome. Slight swelling and redness can occur. Although the area will appear healed after about a week, it will not be fully healed for 4-6 weeks for the true colour to appear. Before it is fully healed, your eyebrow tattoo will appear softer and lighter as your skin regenerates and exfoliates.

One procedure cannot guarantee desired outcome(s). Hair strokes will be much lighter and less crisp once healed. In some cases, it is necessary to review the healing process after the first procedure in order to see how clients react to the pigment. The tattoo will fade 25-40% after the first session. We offer ONE free touch-up visit within 6-8 weeks from the date of the initial procedure. For complicated cases involving pigment lightening or colour correction, there will be an extra charge.

THE DAY OF THE TREATMENT - ABSORB

Gently blot your eyebrows with a clean tissue to absorb excess body fluid. Do this every 5 minutes for the full day until oozing has stopped. Removing this fluid prevents hardening of the body fluid.

DAYS 1-7 – WASH

• Wash daily to remove bacteria and dead skin (this does not remove the pigment )

• GENTLY wash your eyebrows each morning and night with lukewarm water and an antibacterial soap like Cetaphil, Neutrogena or Dial Soap. With a very light touch, use your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse with water ensuring that all soap is rinsed away. To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. DO NOT use any cleansing products containing acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliants.

• Allow the eyebrows to air dry

DAYS 1-7 – MOISTURIZE

Apply Aquaphor (the size of a grain of rice) with a clean cotton swab and spread it across the treated area. Make sure that you do not over-apply the area, as this will suffocate your skin and delay or prevent healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.

** Aquaphor is available in the skin care section at any drug store.

REMINDERS

• Use a fresh, clean pillowcase
• DO NOT rub, scratch, or pick any scabs along the tattooed area – let it fall off naturally. Early removal or picking of pigment crusts/scabs may result in loss of color, scarring, or infection.
• Avoid facials, Botox, chemical treatments or microdermabrasion for 4 weeks
• Avoid swimming, soaking in water, steam baths, hot tubs, and facials for the first 10 days
• Avoid sweating for the first 10 days
• Avoid sleeping on your face for the first 10 days
• Avoid topical makeup including sunscreen on the area for 2 weeks
• Avoid direct sun exposure (including tanning beds) for 4 weeks after procedure. Wear a hat and large sunglasses when outdoors.

SHOWERING

Limit your showers to 5 minutes to avoid creating too much steam. Keep your face/eyebrow area out of the water while you wash your body, and only wash your hair at the end of your shower. Your face should only be getting wet at the end of the shower. Avoid excessive rinsing and hot water on the treated area.

LONG TERM CARE

• Use sunscreen daily on tattooed areas – sun exposure can cause fading and discoloration of the pigment
• Get touch-ups every 1-2 years on pigmented areas as the colour will fade over time
• Notify technicians that you have an iron-oxide cosmetic tattoo prior to receiving a chemical peel, MRI, or other medical procedures.
• Notify your laser specialist to avoid targeting pigmented areas if you are planning to have any laser treatments. The lasers may cause pigment to darken, discolour, or lighten.
• Avoid applying anti-aging creams, retinol products, proactive acne product, and glycolic acid on tattooed areas as continued use could cause discolouring or fading of the pigment
