Overview of

Cosmetic Tattoo - Eyebrow

in Thailand

Cosmetic eyebrow tattoo refers to a procedure of depositing natural special color pigments of natural origin into the dermis skin layer to enhance the appearance of your eyebrow. 

Cosmetic tattoo methods are normally done to sharpen the natural features and contours of the face, in this case for the eyebrow. The process itself is done by using disposable sterile needles to copy the exterior of natural hair strokes or makeup lines. The pigments are usually made of iron oxides and are injected into the skin looking strong at first, but fading out with time. Fading is not an issue as it enables the practitioner to make adjustments to the form and color of the spot in future sessions.

A cosmetic eyebrow tattoo typically needs a touch-up session every 1 to 2 years. As everybody is different, the duration of results varies from one case to another. Typical touch-up sessions is required once a year, or as recommended by your doctor. A cosmetic eyebrow tattoo can save both time and effort in applying makeup on a regular basis.

Pros and cons of

Cosmetic Tattoo - Eyebrow

Pros

  • Durable and fuss-free. Although the results are not permanent, eyebrow tattoos last a decent amount of time; one session is expected to last 1-2 years before a revision procedure is necessary. Compared to conventional makeup, eyebrow tattoos are totally smudge-proof and waterproof and won't run off when you showering or swimming. Plus, they save you from the fuss and extra time you need to apply make-up to make them look fine on a regular basis.
  • Direct results. Eyebrow micro-feathering tattoos offer instant results and the whole treatment can be completed in about an hour.
  • You can enjoy a brand new look that boosts your confidence. Professional eyebrow tattoos offer brows a clearly accentuated form, symmetry, and a harmonious depth in the shade that suits you. This is a perfect choice for those whose natural eyebrows are visibly sparse or sickly pale colorwise. The final results of the process should enhance and match well the rest of your face contours and features.

Cons

  • The procedure is a tad painful. One major drawback of eyebrow tattoos is that you will encounter a mild stinging feeling throughout the session as this spot is especially sensitive. Your tattoo artist will likely suggest you apply a numbing cream topically a few minutes before the session begins to reduce pain and discomfort. Compared to other cosmetic enhancements, though, there is no swelling or intense redness, or irritation right after the procedure. Mild irritation may occur but it usually lasts only 1-2 days. The tattoos will eventually scale over and drop off within two weeks, leaving the area quite itchy in the meantime, until it fully heals. During this period, you may apply a soothing cream to help the area heal better and faster.
  • Extra revision costs. Like any type of semi-permanent cosmetic procedure, eyebrow tattoos fade after some time and you will need to perform touch-ups every 1-2 years. All these costs add up in a few years if you wish to maintain the results.

How it works:

Cosmetic Tattoo - Eyebrow

There are 3 phases of eyebrow drawing.

During the initial consultation, you’ll discuss the following:

  • The expected appearance of your eyebrows
  • Thickness and shade
  • What we can do in your case.

During the consultation, we will discuss with you your expectations, the measures that need to be performed, the chosen shades, and a removable drawing of the final results. 

Once the consultation is over, we will give you a numbing cream to apply for at least half an hour before the procedure. The tattoo pigments will be injected into the eyebrow region using medical-grade facial tattoo needles. 

You should normally feel minimal pain and discomfort. If the pain becomes unbearable for you, the practitioner may apply more numbing cream to the affected spot. The entire process typically lasts 1-2 hours, however, the exact timing varies from one person to another, depending on the appearance of the eyebrows and the skill of the practitioner.

Once the procedure is over, you may encounter a slight sharp pain or itching. Please keep in mind that needles are used only once per client and disposed of after. 

You may need to have a second session around 4-6 weeks. This is typically quicker and is needed to add more pigments to the eyebrows to preserve the results uniformly as some spots may not hold enough pigment at first. This is perfectly normal as every case heals differently and any minor issues will be fixed during touchup.

Preparation before

Cosmetic Tattoo - Eyebrow

Pre - treatment

You will be asked to follow these suggestions a few days or hours before your actual appointment:

  • Don’t consume any alcohol 24-48 hours before your tattoo.
  • Do not drink any coffee before your procedure.
  • Do not take any aspirin or blood-thinning painkiller
  • Don’t eat any fatty fish or drink herbal teas to prevent blood thinning.

Recovery after

Cosmetic Tattoo - Eyebrow

Post - treatment

The first few days after the session and during the healing phase, your skin may feel itchy. This is perfectly normal and is a sign that the area is healing as expected. You may feel like easing the discomfort with cold compress. Although cold compresses or face cloths won’t necessarily reduce any swelling, they may help provide some relief. However, do not overdo these as repeated attempts to soothe the already affected area may actually boost the risk of skin damage and infections.

Avoid applying any pressure to your new eyebrow tattoo and make sure you don’t scrub, scratch, or rub the treated area as this may lead to loss of pigments and scaling. The average healing period varies from one person to another and depends on different factors such as age, sex, skin type, hormones, blood circulation, and the rate your skin recovers after swelling.

Typically, as with any kind of skin trauma, mature and looser skin tends to need more time to head compared to younger and denser skin. Other factors that determine healing time include diet, physical exercise, exposure to sun rays, and any pills and/or supplements the person takes.

Risks & side effects

While cosmetic tattoos are highly popular, there are still some potential risks and adverse effects you may need to think of.

Typical risks include:

  • Swelling. Tattoo needles lead to micro-wounding of the skin. This is expected as your skin reacts to these micro damages by swelling, which usually subsides after 1-2 days. Cold packs may help soothe skin irritation and swelling.
  • Infections. Infections are not very common but they may occur if the tattoo artist/practitioner you use does not take the necessary measures to sterilize the area and the tattooing needles and tools. Therefore, make sure you employ a professional that takes all necessary sterilization measures before and after the procedure.
  • Scarring. If a cosmetic eyebrow tattoo doesn’t heal as expected, scarring may occur. Allergic responses and infections after the process may increase the risk of scarring in the treated area.
  • Allergic reactions. If you have a record of skin allergies or reactions in the past, consider discussing with your tattoo practitioner about using hypoallergenic ink/pigments. Signs of an allergic reaction may be rash, swelling, itchiness, and hives.
  • Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction). While not very common, there are a few reports of people that had this extreme allergic reaction within a few hours of getting tattooed. Some swelling in the area is perfectly normal right after having a cosmetic eyebrow tattoo. However, if you spot any swelling in other surrounding areas such as the cheeks and the neck and you are unable to breathe properly, you should seek emergency medical care immediately. The reaction can be life-threatening if left untreated.
  • Blood-borne conditions. Failure to use sterilized needles and tools may result in the transmission of blood-borne diseases such as Hepatitis B or C and HIV.

FAQs:

Cosmetic Tattoo - Eyebrow

How long does the treatment take?

Usually, the procedure takes 1-2 hours, based on the type of process you are subject to. For eyebrow tattoos, the lengthiest phase of the appointment is the consultation and the sketching of the eyebrow shape. The actual tattoo/inking procedure lasts approximately 1 hour. Once you book your session, your tattoo artist will discuss with you the time necessary to complete the process and give you the time and opportunity to ask questions regarding the process and the results you expect.

 

Is getting a cosmetic tattoo on my eyebrows painful?

The degree of pain and discomfort varies from one person to another. However, most people encounter a bit of itching and pain during the initial 5-10 minutes of the procedure. Once the treated spot has been numbed properly though, the pain is minimized. Overall, the process should be quite tolerable. If you have sensitive skin, ask your doctor if you could get a small tube of EMLA or any other numbing cream. Apply it to the spot generously at least 30 minutes to an hour before treatment. This will minimize any pain or discomfort.

 

Can I remove my eyebrow tattoo if I change my mind?

Technically yes, however, just like regular tattoos, it takes several laser removal sessions to remove the pigments. If you can’t make up your mind or you are unsure if you should get a cosmetic tattoo that will last you a couple of years, take some time to explore all the pros and cons before you finally do it. If you want to do the process but want more natural and subtle results, you should discuss this with your eyebrow artist–they may just fill in some spots with lighter strokes or apply only a thin top liner. Remember that your artist may make your eyebrow thicker or darker during a touchup but it is hard to go the opposite way (dark to lighter) so we suggest you start off with a less dramatic shade or shape first.

 

Who is not an ideal candidate for this treatment?

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women
  • People with diabetes should ask their doctor first before having the procedure as they are more prone to having an infection after the procedure.
  • People who take blood-thinning drugs e.g. aspirin or certain blood pressure-regulating drugs, Niacin, Advil, and Vitamin E should better not go through this procedure, please seek advice from your doctor.
  • If you have acne, eczema, exposed wounds, or other skin infections on or around the eyebrow area, it is highly suggested you avoid having this procedure due to a high risk of infection.
  • People with very oily skin types may go through this procedure but the results will not last as much as other people, due to the oily action of their skin that dissolves or refuses any deposits of pigment. To preserve the results, they may need more frequent touch-ups compared to other clients with normal skin types. Alternative procedures for oilier skin types include “Ombre” or “Combination Brows”.
  • If you have taken anti-acne drugs like Accutane, you are not eligible for this procedure.
  • People who are allergic or intolerant of benzocaine, lidocaine, prilocaine, epinephrine, or tetracaine will have to seek their doctor’s advice first and use the numbing cream they bought as suggested.
  • Anyone with chronic and/or acute medical problems such as cancer or heart problems should seek their doctor’s approval first.
