Why do I need to come in for a consultation?
It is so important for you to come in and see me for a consultation before you have any treatment. This is so I can meet you, take a look at your brows & skin type, discuss your requirements, discuss which treatment style would work best for you and go through the procedure in detail. It also puts you at ease so you can see the salon & treatment room. You will also be given your patch tests.
How long does it last?
The results last anywhere between 18-24 months depending on skin type. Usually a touch up is performed after 12 months of required to retain the shape and saturation of the pigment.
What happens before I have my treatment?
I will book you in for a consultation first so we can meet and I can take a look at your brows and discuss what brow shape, colour etc would be suitable for you. It is advisable to have a HD brow treatment done first which will enhance and tidy up your own brows prior to the treatment ~ but this is entirely optional.
A pre-procedure consent form will be emailed/given to you and this must be completely filled in, signed and brought back with you on the day of your treatment. In some cases a doctors medical consent may be required too before going ahead with your treatment.
A pigment patch test will be given to you (for you to put on the top of your arm) and this must be done 24 hours before treatment. Also ~ no alcohol 24 hours before your treatment!!!! Alcohol thins the blood and therefore will be harder for the pigment to maintain in the skin.
What happens on the day of my treatment?
First of all I want you to know that you will be coming in to a completely safe, clean environment. Enhance is fully council approved and registered & I am fully trained and insured so you are in very safe hands.
The treatment starts with a look through your consent form, a discussion about your brows and the look you wish to achieve. Numbing cream is applied to the brow area. You can enjoy a cup of coffee/tea, read a magazine whilst the cream takes effect for 30 minutes. You’ll be asked to put on a beauty cap to keep your hair well out of the way, you then lie down flat on the couch and just relax. I now spend time looking at your bone structure, measuring and creating your perfect brow shape before I carefully start to create your new brows.
What happens after?
1 hour after the treatment, a solution that I give you needs to be applied gently to your newly formed brows to remove excessive lymph ~ this will start the healing process. You will then continue to follow the instructions in the aftercare pack.
The next 4-6 weeks is the most important part of the treatment where your brows begin to heal and take on their new shape and colour. The aftercare which is now down to you must be strictly adhered to if you wish to keep your brows perfect:
- YOU MUST NOT TOUCH YOUR BROWS AT ALL
- YOU MUST NOT PICK AT THEM ~ NATURALLY YOUR NEWLY ENHANCED BROWS WILL START TO FORM TINY LITTLE SCABS (like a tattoo does) AS THE PIGMENT & COLOUR BEGINS TO EMERGE & HEAL. BY PICKING & SCRATCHING YOUR BROWS YOU WILL SIMPLY JUST PICK OUT THE PIGMENT LEAVING THEM UNEVEN AND LEAD TO POSSIBLE INFECTION.
- THEN FOR THE NEXT 2 WEEKS (STRAIGHT AFTER YOUR TREATMENT) YOU MUST ADHERE TO THE FOLLOWING ~
- NO MAKE UP ON THE BROWS AT ALL ~ AROUND THEM YES BUT ON THEM NO
- NO SWIMMING
- NO SAUNAS
- NO HEAVY GYM SESSIONS AS SWEATING WILL CAUSE THE PIGMENT TO LIFT OUT OF THE SKIN
- NO SUNBEDS
- NO SELF TANNING
- NO PICKING OR FIDDLING WITH YOUR NEW BROWS!!!
I AM STRICT AREN’T I!!! But it’s worth it girls
What happens after the 4-6 weeks?
4-6 weeks after your initial treatment you will come back for your second treatment ~ the full 4-6 week wait is vital as this is the full healing time for your brows. Brow enhancement is always done in 2 parts and this is just as important as the first treatment. Here I assess your brows to see how well the pigment has taken and how well they’ve been looked after!!
You may wish this time to have more shape added, go a deeper colour, it’s entirely up to you. But you will end this treatment with fabulous brows!! This second part is included within the whole price so you do not pay again. However, if you do not return for your 2nd treatment within the 6 week allotted time scale then an additional stand alone fee of £95 will incur.
