Men now value their appearance as much as women and understand the importance of grooming their eyebrows. Nowadays, it is fairly common for men to have their eyebrows trimmed with eyebrow waxing to make their eyebrows look nicely shaped. If thinning eyebrows is a problem due to age, medical treatment’s side effects, or overplucking, opting for a semi-permanent treatment can give you a better look by filling in the gaps and improving their appearance.
As a man, you probably wonder if eyebrow tattooing treatments for men are similar to those for women. The answer is yes, the process is similar however the designs tend to be different as men’s eyebrows have special characteristics in terms of shape and overall hair direction. This is why it is important to choose an aesthetician who has experience in creating male eyebrows and who will be able to perfectly blend the created strokes with your existing surrounding natural hairs.
At MonaNisa Beauty, clients fill out a profile form on their first visit and many opt to have the consultation followed by the eyebrow procedure on the same day. The eyebrow artists will design your eyebrows by drawing strokes with a pencil to outline and map them perfectly. They will also carefully choose a mix of pigments to match your natural brow color, skin tone and undertone. Once you are satisfied with the design, the technician will start the procedure and complete it within 1 hour and a half to 2 hours depending on the experience of the artist and considering your skin condition and any facial muscle problems. A numbing cream will be applied and left on for 20-30 mins before starting the procedure to reduce the amount of discomfort felt during the procedure and re applied during the procedure.
Microblading has been the most popular semi-permanent eyebrow technique to create eyebrows but there is now a newer technique which involves a digital machine and a single nano needle to create more realistic strokes that resemble natural hair. Master Nisa has fully embraced the newer eyebrow technique as it works on all types of skins, causes less skin trauma and the final results look sharper, more natural and last longer than microblading. In addition, the downtime is minimal so you don’t have to worry about having odd looking eyebrows during the healing process and you can exercise normally right after the treatment which makes life much easier compared to microblading.
Assuming you have your eyebrows touched-up within 3 months after the initial procedure, you can expect the result to last up to 3 years before any touch-up is needed. Some men will prefer to come back after 1 -2 years to maintain the shape and intensity of the pigment.
If you've had a cosmetic injection in the forehead or near the eyebrow areas, you will need to wait 2-3 months before being able to have an eyebrow treatment.
If you intend to have a cosmetic injection but haven't had it yet, it is better to wait 1 week after the eyebrow treatment.
You should be healthy and the skin in your eyebrow area should not be irritated or sensitive.
Pain tolerance varies from person to person. A topical anesthetic is applied to numb your eyebrows before and during the procedure, so very little discomfort is experienced. Most of our clients feel that it is irritating but not painful.
Quite intense, too dark due to the excess of pigment in the epidermis. Will be slightly red if you have a very sensitive skin, and a little tender immediately after the procedure. This will go away within 2-3 hours or up to 24 hours depending on your age and your type of skin.
Looks patchy due to tissue swelling and clusters attempting to break it down. The color gets even darker.
Scabbing and falling off.
Feels like nothing left on the brows but don’t worry.
The pigment begins to bloom back. You will see more and more color showing up.
The final healed tattoo color will appear slightly altered.
Brows can be fixed and made perfect during the touch-up visit. Your brows will then change the same way as described previously.
The tattooed color may not be perfect after the initial procedure heals. A follow-up appointment is normally scheduled within 4 to 8 weeks, depending on your age, to determine how the eyebrows tattoo procedure healed and if any further work is needed because some area might healed lighter from tissue swelling and bleeding during the procedure. The result color that you see from the pigments used plus your skin tone. If your healed color leans toward an undesired tone, it can be adjusted at the second visit. Your eyebrows will probably heal lighter or thinner than you desire but they can be darkened or thickened with a second application of pigment at a follow-up visit (“touch-up”).
Swelling may last from 2 to 24 hours, this is very individual.
Aftercare will be covered after your procedure, and a sheet with aftercare instructions will be provided for you to take home.
Right afer the procedure: Pat it dry. Gently blot the area every 5 minutes with a clean tissue to absorb excess of lymph fluid for the full day until oozing has stopped to prevent any hardening of the lymph.
Day 1 – 7: Wash daily to remove bacteria and dead skin with an antibacterial soap such as Cetaphil, by using your fingertips to gently cleanse the eyebrows. Rub the area in a smooth motion for 10 seconds and rinse well with the water. The cleansing products should not contain any acids (glycolic, lactic, or AHA), or any exfoliates.
Keep moist with aftercare: Apply the provided aftercare ointment with a cotton swab on the treated area. Do not use Vaseline and do not over-apply as this will suffocate your skin and delay healing. The ointment should be barely noticeable on the skin. Never put the ointment on a wet or damp tattoo.Extra tips to help with a smooth and easy recovery:

Therefore, if the color doesn't stay very well and you cannot come back for touch-up within 3 months, you will accept the risks of not being able to adjust the shape/color that the touch-up would have offered and you will not be able to claim any refund.
