Micropigmentation

Brow 3D Micropigmentation.

Brow Micropigmentation is a semi-permanent makeup technique our licensed artists/technicians use to create and build your brows by “drawing” tiny hair-like lines that resemble real brows directly onto your skin. It’s excellent for those wanting to enhance their brows by creating more fullness, perfecting the shape, or filling gaps.  Micropigmentation can also dramatically correct or fully reconstruct lost eyebrows, it’s perfect for those who have little to no eyebrows, thinning brows from age or over tweezed brows. The results are incredibly natural looking, regardless of the amount of hair present.  Results typically lasts 12-18 months, depending on skin type and skincare routine.
 
The procedure is performed using natural, vegetable pigments and a small hand-held, HD digital device with a sterile, single-use micro-needle. With the device, the technician creates your brow by gently inserting the pigments into the dermal layer of the skin with a feathering/hair-stroke technique that creates life-like hairs drawn one-by-one. The device and technique allows our technicians to do delicate, detailed work; apply soft shadows below natural hair to give the illusion of fullness and blend pigment to provide realistic colors to match hair and skin tone to provide better brow definition without affecting natural hair.

What to AVOID:
  • Discontinue Vitamin A/Retinol products, facial scrubs & chemical peels at least 2 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Laser treatments at least 1 week before.

LICENSED AND CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS AND SALON:

Micropigmentation falls under the guidelines of tattoo artistry. Our certified Micropigmentation technicians are licensed estheticians and licensed cosmetic tattoo artists in the state of Florida. Our technicians are registered to perform their services at Nerio Camargo Makeup Plus, a licensed salon/facility.  

Note: Although Micropigmentation is considered a tattoo, the pigment, needle and technique are VERY different.  A Traditional Eyebrow Tattoo uses a tattoo gun with a rotary and coil to draw on eyebrows. Because of this approach, it’s hard to get precise and small lines, which causes eyebrows to look thick and unnatural.  Additionally, tattoo ink is deposited much deeper into the skin and is designed to stay throughout the course of a client’s life.

Micropigmentation on the other hand, uses a small needle to deposit the pigment much more shallowly into a client’s skin, resulting in sharp lines that do not bleed.  Also, the pigment used is semi-permanent that naturally dissipates and disappears over time.

MICROPIGMENTATION PROCESS

STEP I: Consultation and Drawing (Mockup & Frame)

THE CONSULTATION:
  • The technician will take the “Before” pictures of your brows.
  • During this time, you will discuss your style, preferences and desired brow look.  
  • The artist will advise you of the various shapes and colors that best suits the shape of your face and eyes.
  • Next our technician will review the Micropigmentation procedure in detail, including:
    • What to expect
    • Review the Before/Aftercare
    • Answer any questions you might have
DRAWING
  • The MockUp:
  • The initial Brow Mockup will be drawn on your brow with makeup.  This creates a visual that allows you and your technician to better work together to create your perfect brow.
  •  The Brow Frame:                                                                                              
  • Once you and the technician have agreed on a shape and color, your skin will be sanitized and the 2nd Brow Mockup or “Frame” is drawn on your brow with a marker (don’t worry, we remove the marker at the end!)
  • The Brow Frame drawing is very important as it will guide the artist during the micropigmentation procedure. 
STEP II: Numbing and Micropigmentation Procedure
 
For the 2nd Step, you will move to the Micropigmentation area.
  • Your brows will be sanitized again and a topical numbing cream will be applied (for 20-30 min).  
  • Next the technician will assemble the high-definition digital Micropigmentation device.  
    • The cord & handheld device is covered with a plastic cord cover, then wrapped in a plastic film.
    • The technician will attach the (closed-package) sterile & single use cartridge to the device.
  • Artist will now perform the work based on the mock-up, by carefully inserting the pigments into the upper
  • At the end of the service all pigments leftovers are removed from the face with sterile wipes, A&D ointment is applied and your “After” pictures are taken.
CHECKOUT:
  • You will be given a packet of A&D Ointment and a printed version of the aftercare instructions.
  • We will schedule your complementary Touch-Up appointment to 4 - 6 weeks after your 1st session.
*Micropigmented brows typically lasts 12-18 months, depending on skin type and skincare routine.  To maintain the brows looking fresh, a retouch appt is suggested every 12-18 month

AFTERCARE & POST TREATMENT INFORMATION

Micropigmentation aftercare is very important to the appearance and longevity of your new eyebrows. The healing cycle takes about four weeks, during this time, your eyebrows will go through several phases they will go from too dark, to too light, to just right!  Immediately after the procedure, the pigment will appear very dark, please don’t panic! In the first 10 days, you might notice mild scabbing and flaking (this can be minimized by following these aftercare instructions).  The color of the pigment will lighten (and may even seem to disappear) as the color is absorbed in the deeper layers of the skin. The true reflection of your new brow color can only be assessed 4 weeks after your treatment. We offer a complimentary touchup appointment 4-6 weeks after your treatment, to perfect or add additional color to your eyebrow design.

FIRST DAY:
VERY IMPORTANT: KEEP THE TREATMENT AREA CLEAN & HYDRATED!
  • The treatment area will weep a clear fluid, called plasma.  To avoid the plasma drying, gently wipe your brows with a dry Qtip to absorb the plasma. HYDRATE the area by applying the A&D ointment (provided) after cleaning.
  • Continue cleaning & hydrating a minimum of every 2 hours, this should prevent any flaking or scabbing.
  • After the procedure, redness and slight swelling in the area is normal.  Clients describe the area feeling similar to a light sunburn.  Clients can take Tylenol but not aspirin or ibuprofen.
  • Before bed, you must gently wash your face (including the treatment area) with mild soap & lukewarm water, 
    • Using your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows making sure you remove any plasma that might have accumulated, then rinse. 
    • To dry, gently pat with a clean tissue. 
    • Reapply the ointment afterwards.
  • Other than washing your face, do not wet your brows. Avoid: ice/cold packs, steam (sauna, facials, cooking, hot shower or baths), increased sweating, practicing sports, swimming, etc.
  • DO NOT touch, pick or scratch the treatment area.  If you have mild scabbing, do not pick the scab.
  • Keep your hair clean & out of your face.

DAYS 1-10 (Healing):
  • Gently wash your face morning & night. Limit showers to 5 min and avoid hot water.  Other than washing your face, keep your brows dry and avoid steam/humidity (no facials, pools, baths, saunas, etc.).
  • DO NOT use any exfoliants, bleaching agents or products containing acids (glycolic/AHA, lactic, or salicylic/BHA).
  • Apply a thin coat (rice grain amount) of A&D Ointment to the area after washing your face, reapply 45 times per day.  The area should be dry before applying. Also do not over apply, the ointment should barely be visible.
  • Do not allow makeup, lotions, or other products to come into contact with the treated area.
  • Avoid touching, picking or scratching the treated area. If you experience scabbing, DO NOT PICK SCABS! This can cause pigment blurring and there is a risk of scarring and/or infection.
  • Do not expose your eyebrows to direct sun or to tanning beds.
ONGOING CARE:
  • Do not expose your eyebrows chlorine, spas or pools for the first month.
  • Always use sunscreen (min SPF 25) to protect your brows from sun exposure. Extreme sun exposure and tanning beds will fade your pigment. Wear a hat if you are going to be in the sun for an extended amount of time.
  • Be aware that the use of chemical peels, exfoliants (Retin-A, glycolic acids, etc.), acne medications and brightening/bleaching products applied on the forehead region can expedite the fading of your brow pigment.
  • Be cautious with hair removal treatments as certain types such as lasers can turn the pigments black.
  • Pigments generally last 12-18 months (but will vary depending on one’s metabolism, skin type, sun exposure, etc.).
