What can be achieved?

For many the term "permanent makeup” instantly conjures up images of harsh lines and discoloured cosmetics. These dated techniques are more often than not indelibly tattooed into the skin like a permanent marker, only to change colour and look increasingly unnatural as the skin ages. However, modern techniques can create a look far from this unflattering image that originated over three decades ago.

Using advanced pigments and application techniques, today's permanent makeup can achieve fine subtle strokes of colour. Intricately layered to create such incredibly natural results indistinguishable from traditional makeup. The feathering/ micro stroke  technique performed by Be creates the illusion of   fully defined and fluffy brows even if little to no natural hair is present. To prevent unwanted colour shift, the pigments and application used at Skin Architecture  are designed to be semi-permanent. This allows for the most natural look while enabling slight modifications in colour density and/or shape to be done during annual touch-ups.


The Procedure

Your experience at Skin Architecture starts with a consultation in which shape and colour analysis are performed to determine the most optimal brow design. Once you and your artist are satisfied with the design and colour choice , A special formulated pigment will then be custom mixed to achieve the perfect colour, shade, and density. Numbing solution will be applied to the skin before the application starts. Using the micro-Stroke technique, hundreds of tiny micro pigmentation layers are applied and seamlessly blended to create depth and contrast.

For the first few days the results generally appears darker, bolder and more defined. Special after care instructions will be given and a touch-up visit will be scheduled after 5 weeks time. The end result is a soft, defined, and natural looking brow that is custom tailored to each individual client’s unique facial features. 

How long will it last?

Usually 1-2 years, with refresh appointments recommended. Hair Stroke / Feather Touch Tattooing can last a shorter or longer period depending on your skin type (IT DOES NOT LAST AS LONG AS POWDER BROWS TATTOO) This is because we are creating fine, delicate strokes so make it look as natural as possible. Other factors that play a role in longevity are skin colour, pigment used, thickness of the lines, and mostly how aggressive your immune system is in metabolizing the pigment. Factors such as sun exposure, some skin creams and lotions, ex-foliating treatments, medications / illnesses and many similar factors can affect fading of your tattooing. I suggest clients have a refresh treatment every 6 to 18 months to keep the shape looking its best!

(However no guarantees are offered or implied in regards to how long it will last before you need to have your refresh appointment.)
