Semi-Permanent Eyebrows Reviewed

Since going public about her experience with semi-permanent make-up, the most commonly asked question has been ‘did they hurt’.

She had already experienced tattooing of which she said: ‘Yes it hurts, but it’s not the insane torturous feeling that so many people imagine; it’s bearable’.

No pain no gain, perhaps, for semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing?

Niamh said:

In actual fact, having my eyebrows tattooed was painless.

Painless and feelingless, as the numbing cream rendered my eyebrows and forehead an unflinching canvas for my artist Claire Hobson to work on.

She had her eyebrows tattooed at SkinViva’s Castlefield skin clinic in Manchester.

The tiny defined hairstrokes are clear and even though my forehead is pink, it’s not sore.

According to Niamh’s review, the most difficult aspect of the treatment appears to have been the advice not to get the eyebrows wet while they heal and to avoid the temptation to scratch at the itchy skin.

However, 10 days later, she said:

After the ten days is up my eyebrows were no longer scabby and dry looking but in fact, defined and darker as I had wished.

It might seem like a lot to go through just to have a defined eyebrow shape, but for somebody who previously spent a painstaking fifteen minutes in front of the mirror every morning it’s a welcome procedure.
