TATTOOING

The Brow Lab are renowned for their natural approach to cosmetic tattooing. From feathering and ombre brows, to lip restoration and lash enhancement tattoos, you can be sure you are in experienced and capable hands. 

MICROBLADING- 2.5hrs $750 

Microblading (also known as feather touch) is a process that involves a manual hand-tool with a cluster of fine pins, used to implant pigment into the skin to create semi-permanent, life-like hair strokes and natural-looking eyebrows.

 

Suitable for:

  • Clients who prefer a very natural, soft appearance

  • Fill in sparse areas

  • Add depth/colour

  • Create thickness

  • Symmetry correction

  • Camouflage Superficial scarring

  • Normal-dry skin (Very Oily skin types are better suited to a digital method)

COMBINATION BROW 2.5hrs $800 

This process involves a blend of 2 techniques- a digital method tattoo machine and a hand tool method to implant pigment into the skin.

This technique utilises a hair stroke method in the centre of the eyebrows to create a “soft” centre and then utilises a machine method on the mid-brow and tails to create the appearance of a softly powdered brow. Due to the digital shading method this technique initially looks bolder in colour and sharply defined while healing, however heals to a soft powdery finish.

 

Suitable for:

  • Cover up of previous tattooing that has faded.

  • Those who prefers a more defined look in comparison to microblading.

  • Oily skin types.

  • Camouflage deeper scarring.

  • Larger caps in the brows

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MICROBLADING AND COMBO BROWS


The main difference between Combination and Microbladed brows is the type of equipment used and the healed outcome. Combination brow tattooing utilises a hand tool method AND a digital tattoo machine to created a soft shaded brow with a filled in outcome through the mid-brow and tails, whereas Microbladed brows utilises a manual hand tool to implant fine hair strokes into the skin, throughout the entire eyebrow. Combination brow tattooing may create a longer lasting eyebrow compared to microblading.




CONSULTATION


A 30 minute consultation takes place before treatment (on the same day or can be booked separately if needed). This covers the treatment in depth, your desired/recommended eyebrow shape, pigment colour and aftercare instructions.




BROW SHAPE & COLOUR


Prior to treatment we will outline, measure and pencil on a brow shape and choose the most suitable pigment colour. We will take into consideration the most appropriate shape and colour to suit your specific facial features, natural brow line, skin tone, hair colour and your desired brow shape and colour.

Small amounts of discomfort is expected, however we make the treatment as comfortable as possible.

TREATMENT PREPARATION


No waxing/tinting leading up to your appointment. (Please note: unlike a normal tattoo, we do NOT shave the hair off). Discontinue active skincare in the area 1 week prior to your treatment (e.g. Vitamin A, chemical peels, prescribed skincare etc.) Do not have any Injectables for 3-4 weeks before treatment. Inform us before your treatment of any medical conditions or severe allergies that may interfere with treatment.

WHAT TO EXPECT POST-TREATMENT


Swelling and redness is minimal and usually subsides within 24 hours Immediately after, the area will appear bolder in colour and sharply defined. This can take approx. 1-2 weeks for the colour to settle. There may be visible peeling/flaking for approx. 1-2 weeks The skin takes 4-8 weeks to heal at a cellular level and for the true pigment colour to settle You may feel itching in the eyebrows. Do not scratch the area. This will NOT prevent working or socialising.




TREATMENT AFTERCARE


You cannot submerge the area in pool/salt water for a minimum of 2 weeks, therefore it is NOT recommended to plan this treatment close to any holidays or swimming events. Makeup can be worn around, but not over the area for a minimum of 2 weeks. It is not recommended to use any tanning products near the area while it is healing. A recommended tattoo aftercare cream will be applied to the area. Further aftercare instructions will be given to you at your appointment.




PERFECTING TOUCH-UP TREATMENT


Brow tattooing is a multi-step process. A touch-up appointment is scheduled 4 weeks after your initial appointment. Colour retention varies depending on the individual, skin type and client compliance of homecare instructions.




FURTHER RETOUCHING


Brow Tattooing requires an annual re-touch treatment from 12 months onwards. Microblading may fade within 6 months - 2 years depending on your skin type and long term aftercare. The longevity of colour in the skin cannot always be predicted. Some skins hold colour longer and stronger than others, while others fade leaving a light residue in the skin. Pigment may fade or change according to metabolism, lifestyle, skin type, medications, age, smoking, alcohol, sun exposure, and use of active skincare products such as Retin-A and Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s).
