Men’s Eyebrow Restoration

YES, men can benefit from eyebrow restoration too!  In fact more and more men are starting to realize the importance of eyebrows, and are starting to seek out cosmetic restoration services to enhance and give back that element of youth.   Just like women men experience sparse and unruly brows.  For years male actors and celebrities have been doing cosmetic tattooing to improve their appearance, and highlight their features.  Brow micropigmentation can be the best solution for a man who has thin or unsymmetrical brows, superficial scarring, hair loss, trichotillomania, or Alopecia.

This semi permanent technique is achieved using nano needle technology.  Men require a different approach in order to design that conservative masculine look.  The technique involves strategically drawing and placing each individual hair one by one to either back fill brow for density or to add definition to enhance shape.

Our technique is known as nano needle technology, which is the most advanced technology for emulating hair.  It is done with a calibrated digital machine, and single disposable ultra fine needle.   Some artistry can use different needle lengths and diameter thickness to mimic texture and blend in with surrounding brow hair. All procedures are done with a a specialized semi-permanent pigment that is designed to fade over time, keeping the artistry malleable as you age.  This technique is ideal for hiding spot hair loss or building back both brows in their entirety.  Each hair is drawn in slowly one by one using this rotary modality, which is the safest method for hair simulation for all skin types, and delivers the most natural ultra fine hair strokes that actually emulate real brow hair.

 

Men now have the option of restoring the fullness back to their brows that blends in with their natural brow hair giving them more definition and youthful appearance.   Back filling behind the brow hair will give the brow density and color so that the artistry is seamless. The best part about it is no one will ever know that you had them done!

 


                                     

BROW PREP & POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS

PREPARATION

  •  Avoid Caffeine, alcohol, Aspirin, or Ibuprofen 24 hours before your appointment.
  • Avoid doing Botox injections 2 weeks prior to your appointment
  • Discontinue using Vitamin E, Fish oil, and any other blood thinning products a week before your appointment.
  • Discontinue using Vitamin A or Retinol products at least weeks prior to your brow appointment.
  • Inform your technician of any allergies, medical conditions, and medications prior to your appointment

POST CARE INSTRUCTIONS

1. Care & Cleaning: Instructions for the first 5 days after your procedure: Clean your brows gently with an unscented baby wipe each time before applying the post care ointment. (If the wipe is overly moist, dab the excess moisture off on a paper towel). Start cleaning the brows from the outside of the brow and gently massage toward the nose, forward and then back, without rubbing hard or putting pressure on the new tattoo. Your goal is to loosen the excess ointment and remove any dead skin buildup.

Blot the brows dry with a tissue after cleaning – and then allow them to air dry completely before applying ointment. *** Never apply ointment to moist or wet skin as this can cause the hair strokes to merge during the healing process. Apply ointment 3 times a day as a minimum unless directed by your technician . This would be ( morning , afternoon and before bedtime) to keep skin moist while the brows are healing. This prevents the skin from drying out so the pigment does not exfoliate. Sleep on a clean pillowcase during the five day healing process.

2. Ointment Application: Apply ointment 3 times a day for 5 consecutive days.

3. Showers: You will avoid getting the brow tattoo wet for 7 consecutive days after your procedure.

WHAT YOU MAY OBSERVE AFTER YOUR APPOINTMENT

  1.  Do not be alarmed if your brows appear darker, and or fuller after your appointment – this is normal. Skin responses vary but your skin will settle down quickly. The color will lighten over the next 3-5 days during the healing process.
  2. The skin around the brows could turn slightly pink and look irritated after having this intradermal procedure. This is a normal skin response that usually subsides within the hour, but for some can last up to 24 hours after application of pigment.
  3. If you have sensitive skin you may observe slight swelling around the artistry, which can cause temporary visual asymmetry after procedure until the skin calms down. Extreme sensitivity cases can take up to 24 hours to resolve.
  4. The skin may shed some during the healing process, which can result in fading or pigment loss. Thus, you may see some pigment or skin debris on your cotton swab while applying ointment. Your brows may flake or scab a little during healing – this is normal. Do not pick at your brows, let them naturally exfoliate.
  5. Your brows will appear several shades lighter after healing. Pigment fading and or loss is normal – especially after your initial session. The top layer of the skin is fresh and is muting the pigment.  Your brows are still healing up to 30 days after your appointment – even though the exfoliating has stopped.  It is common that the color will start to return during this time, and to seem slightly sparse in spots, and not dark enough.  This is the time where you will notice that you will need your perfection session, or additional touch ups to refine and reinforce the artistry and color.  Your “perfection session” is your touch up to tweak shape and color.

Long Term After Care

For best results and color retention – Use Sunscreen (SPF 30). Extreme sun exposure will cause premature fading. You can use facial cleansers and moisturizers over the brow artistry, just stay away from products that cause skin exfoliation, such as glycolic and other peeling chemicals, Retin-A, and laser treatments.

Inform your technician or physician of your semi-permanent brows if you are having a laser procedure or MRI or if you are giving blood.
