There’s no better feeling than feathering eyebrows in Sydney – your arches can make or break your overall look, and getting them done well can save you a lot of stress.
What it is?
Essentially it’s a procedure that gives you semi-permanent, thick, soft, perfect arches. It uses a blade to cut small incisions into the skin’s top layer. These incisions are filled with a pigment that is made to look like extremely natural hair.
Who should get it?
Feathering eyebrows in Sydney is perfect for people with already thick arches, but who have a few patches that need to be filled. Your beauty technician will add some soft strokes to these areas in order to give you a fuller, yet natural arch.
What to expect during the procedure?
The procedure takes between 1.5 to 2 hours and will require you to have not touched your arches in around 8 weeks – that is, you shouldn’t have plucked, waxed or exfoliated them at this time. Your technician will apply a numbing ointment on your skin to prevent you from feeling any pain, and will then complete the procedure.
You will then need to have another feathering eyebrow in Sydney appointment around 2 months after the initial one. Your technician will check-in and observe how they have healed, and then add any extra strokes where required. Once they’re finished, no one will be able to tell the difference between your real hairs and the faux ones! They last up to 12 months.
The healing process
Your arch area will be sensitive for a week or so after the feathering eyebrows in Sydney treatment. You can expect to see some minor swelling and redness for a few days after the procedure. Ensure you don’t pick any scabs which might form, and avoid excessive sweating and moisture for about a week to prevent pigment from fading. You can also apply a thin layer of SPF 30+ sunscreen to prevent fading.
Your arches will also gradually change colour over a period of two weeks until they reach your perfect shade (determined by your technician).
Is it safe?
Like most cosmetic procedures, feathering eyebrows in Sydney is safe as long as your technician keeps their tools sanitised and sterile. Choose a reputable provider who is trained and experienced to avoid any unwanted mishaps.
Besides mild and temporary redness, swelling and bruising, side effects of the procedure are quite rare. Ensure your technician performs a patch test of the pigment before starting the procedure in order to check if you’re allergic or not.
The price of feathering eyebrows in Sydney will depend on where you live and which salon you choose. Factors such as technician experience and how popular the treatment is can also affect price. However, it generally costs between $600-$2000 for two sessions. It is quite a costly procedure, though it does mean you won’t have to worry about drawing in your arches every morning.
Getting a touch up
If you love your new arches and want to keep them, you’ll only need to get a touch up every 8-12 months. This tends to be much cheaper than the initial cost. If you don’t get a touch-up, the dye will fade after about a year.
Feathering eyebrows in Sydney is an efficient, semi-permanent alternative to having to wax and fill in your arches constantly. While it is an investment, it may be worth it if you want to save time getting ready in the mornings, and would like to have fuller, more natural-looking arches.
