Cosmetic Tattoo FAQ's
The difference between microblading and nanostrokes is that the hair strokes are created with a needle instead of a blade. It ensures longevity, even saturation, less trauma but also better retention. Microblading is a hand held tool that can cause more trauma to the skin and also encourage the pigment to turn blocky and sometimes fade unevenly.
Your eyebrows will take 6-8 weeks to be healed completely. After 10 days the scabbing and flaking stage would be over, although it can take a few weeks for the colour to resettle into the skin. After your Touch Up Perfection visit the brows will be true to colour and completed after another 6 week healing phase.
Yes! Hybrid tattoo uses the same power output the pigment delivery system that the pigment will heal and fade evenly over time. Even with the two different styles; nano strokes and pixels. It is better than microblading as the healed results are much cleaner and it fades a lot more natural than microblading.
Yes, all permanent makeup will fade overtime. As our skin cells renew, this is why when tattoo is done too deep it may not fade as it has been implanted into the dermal layer of the skin. This is not a desirable outcome. At Brisbane Lashes our equipment is finely tuned and our cosmetic tattoo artist is a diploma qualified beauty therapist with advanced knowledge in skin anatomy to ensure quality and longevity.
Ombre brows will last 3-4 years, maybe even more depending on lifestyle factors, skincare and the type of colour saturation desired.
No, you wont feel any pain. Before your appointment you order an anaesthetic to be sent to our salon (3 days prior to your appointment). This is then used during your appointment to ensure comfort and also to perfect healing and colour retention.
In most cases a consult isn’t needed for you to book an appointment. You will only need a consultation if you have existing tattoo, health conditions that may need a medical certificate or if you have never ever even had your brows shaped/tinted before in your consult we have the opportunity to shape them first and chat about post and pre care leading up to your appointment.
No, eyeliner tattoo does not hurt. However, if you do feel any discomfort during your treatment let your artist know ASAP. Three days before your appointment you will fill in a form to order your anaesthetic to be delivered to our salon. This is used initially to numb the area, and then a secondary gel is used during your appointment which ensures ultimate comfort, pigment retention and longevity.
If you are unsure of which cosmetic tattoo service to choose please book a consultation where we can discuss all options and answer any questions or concerns you may have so that you feel 100% comfortable with your cosmetic tattoo choice.
We stage these 6-8 weeks after to give the skin a long enough time to heal and have the colour settled. During your follow up we discuss the colour as its settled, shape adjustments or areas which need refining. We fine tune your initial appointment and implant more colour for a longer lasting brow service.
