Why This Winter Is The Ideal Time To Try Eyebrow Micropigmentation

If you’re tired of drawing on your eyebrows every morning but you still want to feel put together and ready to go out at a moment’s notice, try permanent eyebrow micropigmentation. This permanent makeup solution allows you to have perfect brows everyday and can save you time in your morning routine. Permanent brows help you avoid the accidental makeup smudges caused by wearing toques, going swimming, and less than ideal weather conditions.. If you’ve been considering permanent makeup, now is the best time to get it; permanent makeup is convenient and wonderful all year round, but getting it in the winter is ideal. Here is why winter is the perfect time to get your eyebrow micropigmentation.

Choose Winter To Discover Eyebrow Micropigmentation

What Is Eyebrow Micropigmentation?

Eyebrow Micropigmentation is a form of permanent makeup that uses a feathering technique to apply individual hair strokes that create a natural looking and multidimensional eyebrow. Each set of brows is tailored to the face shape and bone structure of the person who is receiving the procedure and the colour of ink is matched to their hair colour. Micropigmentation typically looks very natural and gives your eyebrows a defined shape and filled in look.

Why Is Winter The Perfect Time To Try Eyebrow Micropigmentation?

  • UV Rays. Exposure to UV rays is damaging to the pigment used in permanent makeup. Excess exposure to UV can break up to pigment during healing and afterwards. Having eyebrow micropigmentation in the winter gives your eyebrows a better chance to heal without UV rays and will mean you don’t have to come back for a touch up so soon.
  • Avoiding Products On The Face. During healing, you’ll need to avoid most products on the areas with micropigmentation. Although it’s a good idea to wear sunscreen even in the winter, the summer tends to dictate more skin products, including more frequent reapplication. While many people may love to wear makeup year round, if you need to take a break from wearing makeup for healing, winter is a good time to do this as we all bundle up for the cold Edmonton winters. With a toque, mask, and big parka hood, your face will largely be hidden and regular makeup can get ruined under all of the layers anyway, so it’s a good reason to skip it during healing.
  • Staying Away From Excess Moisture. Water and moisture are discouraged for the healing process, which includes excessive moisture in the air and sweat on the face. Having permanent makeup treatments in the winter will mitigate both of these, as you won’t be sweating in the cold weather and Edmonton winters have notoriously dry air. Avoiding moisture means you won’t be able to go swimming or hot tubbing for 10 days after your treatment, which may be easier to resist when it’s not summertime.

Q: How long does eyebrow micropigmentation last?
A: Approximately 2 to 5 years, although this will depend on factors such as your healing process and how much UV you are exposed to.

Q: What is the difference between micropigmentation and microblading
A: Micropigmentation goes deeper into the skin than microblading and because of that it lasts about twice as long as microblading. There is also a difference in the pigments used.
