Newport Beach Permanent Brow Makeup

Permanent brow makeup has gained popularity in recent years as a solution for individuals looking for long-lasting, effortless brows. If you’re tired of spending time and effort every morning shaping and filling in your brows, then permanent brow makeup at Lash Pilot might be the solution for you. In this article, we will explore what permanent brow makeup is, its benefits, the process of getting it done, how to choose the right shape and color, safety and hygiene standards, as well as the cost and maintenance involved.


Understanding Permanent Brow Makeup

Permanent brow makeup, also known as microblading or eyebrow tattooing, is a cosmetic technique that uses semi-permanent pigments implanted into the skin to create the appearance of fuller, well-defined eyebrows. Unlike traditional eyebrow makeup products that need to be applied daily and can smudge or wear off, permanent brow makeup done at Lash Pilot can last for several months to a few years, depending on individual factors.

What is Permanent Brow Makeup?

Permanent brow makeup involves using a hand-held tool or a tattoo machine to deposit pigments into the skin’s top layers, mimicking the appearance of natural eyebrow hairs. It is a meticulous process that requires the expertise of a trained and certified artist.

Permanent Brow Makeup implies two possibilities: permanent color and semi-permanent color

Is Permanent Brow Makeup Really Permanent?

Permanent result is achieved when the artist places the device with more pressure and inserts the pigments into deeper layers of the skin. Semi-permanent result is achieved when the artist inserts the pigments on the epidermis, allowing the pigments to come off when the skin sheds.

Understanding  the “Permanent” Factor In Permanent Makeup ?

Getting Permanent brow makeup is a catch 22. It would seem to be intuitive to think you should get your eyebrows look permanently beautiful after just one appointment. However, as the saying goes, anything too good to be true should be considered twice. Yes, it is very easy for a brow artist to create permanent brow makeup, but are you prepared for what also comes with permanent?

To create permanent results, a brow artist implants the pigments into the deeper layers of the skin. By going deeper, the needle will damage the skin and cause scar tissue. When the scarring is not so much, you will have permanent brow color. 

You have permanent color, but the color does not stay the same. Most permanent brow color would change to grayish, reddish, and bluish. 

When you’re not so lucky, an artist can overdo and create excessive scarring and you will feel pain. With physical stress, your heart rate will rise and there will be more bleeding. The bleeding will expel all pigments and you will end up with no or not much color.

Why Does Your Permanent Brow Color Change to Grayish, Reddish, or Bluish? 

As much as we wish to have a static permanent result for our brows, our body is very much a living organism. Just to name a few. We perspire, our skin shed, our blood flows, we are exposed to heat and UV, our skin goes in contact with other substances, etc… Each of these factors alone is enough to cause your permanent eyebrow color to change.

In conclusion, permanent brow color will save you cost and time, but also change in tones. Better yet, you may want to seek a less permanent brow color, also called semi-permanent color.

What Are the Pros and Cons of Semi-Permanent Brow Color?

Before getting into the Pros and Cons, let’s discuss how a semi permanent color can be achieved. It is almost counter-intuitive, but it is a lot more difficult to achieve a semi-permanent brow color. How so? 

Let’s visualize the thickness of a paper. Now visualize a vibrating device with a needle going up and down that paper.

If that needle goes up and down within the thickness of the paper, you will achieve semi-permanent brow color.If the needle punctures through and goes past the thickness of the paper. Too much of those punctures will injure the skin.

For an artist’s skill level, the ability to stabilize a vibrating device and precisely insert pigments in the fine thickness of a paper, it shows the level of expertise.

In short, only highly skilled artists can achieve semi permanent results. 

Is Semi-Permanent Makeup Worth It? The pros of semi permanent results is that the brow fashion trend changes every ten to twenty years. For example, in the 80s, skinny and thin brows were in trend. In the 2020s, thick and bushy brows are more trendy. Having a semi permanent brow allows the color to fade over time and keeps your brow skin in great condition to receive more appropriate brow trends and any future time.

The Cons of Semi Permanent Makeup. The only cons of semi permanent makeup is that you will need to get your brow touched up every few years. The great news is most places offer their clients touchup sessions at a discounted rate. So, if you find a great artist, the best is to go back to the same artist for the touch up to receive consistent results. Not only that you will save, your artist also knows the history of your brow and can give better treatment.

Does Permanent Makeup Scar Your Skin?

Yes and No

Yes with unskilled artist, and no with brow experts.

Permanent Makeup can cause scarring if the artist puts too much pressure on her device. As a consumer, how would you know if your artist is pressing too much pressure? The easiest indication is to listen to your pain level. While semi-permanent makeup involves some level of discomfort and pain, the pain should be tolerable. If you feel that it is abnormally painful, it is a red flag and you should communicate with your artist.

What Causes Unsafe Permanent Makeup?

The common two reasons are: lack of experience and pressure from clients.

Lack of experience: when a brow artist does not have enough experience and being adventurous, she would overpromise and potentially cause skin damage.

Pressure from clients: a brow artist may feel too invested and can not make independent judgment. Expert brow artists know when to say yes when to say no and guide his or her clients’ expectations. Brow expert do not compromise the health of your skin

Benefits of Permanent Brow Makeup

One of the main benefits of permanent brow makeup is the time-saving aspect. With permanent brows, you can wake up with perfectly shaped and filled-in brows, eliminating the need for daily makeup application. It is especially beneficial for individuals with sparse or thinning brows, providing a natural-looking solution to enhance their facial features.

Additionally, permanent brow makeup is a great option for those with active lifestyles or individuals who suffer from conditions like alopecia or trichotillomania. The longevity of the pigments allows for worry-free activity, such as swimming or exercising, without the fear of smudging or fading eyebrows.

Another advantage of permanent brow makeup is its versatility. The skilled artist at Lash Pilot can tailor the shape, color, and thickness of the brows to suit each individual’s unique features and preferences. Whether you desire a bold, dramatic look or a more natural, subtle enhancement, permanent brow makeup can be customized to achieve the desired result.

Furthermore, the process of getting permanent brow makeup is relatively quick and convenient. While the initial appointment may take a couple of hours, the results can last for an extended period, reducing the need for frequent touch-ups. This makes it a practical choice for those with busy schedules or anyone who wants to simplify their daily beauty routine.


The Process of Getting Permanent Brow Makeup

The process of getting permanent brow makeup at Lash Pilot involves several steps, starting with an initial consultation and ending with aftercare to ensure optimal healing and long-term results.

Embarking on the journey to achieve flawless and hassle-free brows through permanent makeup is an exciting decision that many individuals make to enhance their natural beauty effortlessly.

During the initial consultation, the certified artist at Lash Pilot will not only discuss your desired brow shape and color but will also take the time to understand your lifestyle and preferences to tailor the perfect brow design for you. This personalized approach ensures that the end result complements your unique features and style, giving you the confidence of waking up to perfect brows every day.

Initial Consultation

Before the procedure, you will meet with a certified artist to discuss your desired brow shape and color and any concerns or questions you may have. The Lash Pilot artist will assess your natural brows and facial features to provide professional guidance and ensure that your expectations are realistic.

Furthermore, the initial consultation serves as a valuable opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about the procedure, the pigments used, and the expected longevity of your new brows. The artist will walk you through each step of the process, ensuring that you feel comfortable and informed before moving forward.

The Procedure

On the day of the procedure, the artist will start by numbing the area to minimize discomfort. They will then use a sterile needle or blade to deposit the pigments into the skin, creating individual hair-like strokes or shading techniques to achieve the desired brow shape and fullness. The process typically takes around one to two hours, depending on the complexity of the design.

As the Lash Pilot artist meticulously crafts each stroke or shading to mimic natural brow hairs, you can relax knowing that you are in expert hands. The use of high-quality pigments ensures that your brows will maintain their color and definition, giving you a long-lasting solution for your beauty routine.

Aftercare and Healing

After the procedure, it is crucial to follow the artist’s aftercare instructions to ensure proper healing and long-lasting results. This may include avoiding excessive sweating, direct sunlight, or using skincare products that can affect the healing process. It is normal for the brows to appear darker and more defined immediately after the procedure, but they will gradually fade to a more natural shade within a few weeks.

During the healing process, it is essential to resist the temptation to pick or scratch your brows, as this can interfere with the pigment’s retention and overall outcome. By following the aftercare guidelines provided by your artist, you can enjoy beautiful, well-defined brows for years to come.
