The Luxe Brow
The luxè brow is a semi permanent make up method that is done using a machine, a small needle deposits tiny pixel like dots into the first layer of the skin to create shading throughout the brow. To create an ombré effect giving soft fronts to the brow the pixels are far apart and very misty, to create depth throughout the arch and the tail of the brow the pixels are closer together. Once healed the luxè brow looks like a fresh wax and tint 24/7 soft and subtle. This treatment can be tailored to each individual wether your requiring soft definition or full on power brows.

What to expect after your treatment:
At the point of the reveal when you see your new brows for the first time, the colour will appear more vibrant, warmer toned and darker in colour, however still very luxurious.
During the first 48hrs your brows will oxidise and the colour will become darker and the brow will appear bolder.
After this stage is complete the flaking of the brow will begin, this can continue for the full 2 weeks or be over with within 48 hours this flaking stage is described as dandruff of the brow, beaware not to pick, scratch or pull at the flaking and let it come away from the brow naturally.
Once the flaking has stopped your brows may appear extremely light at first, the colour is still settling into your skin at this point. At 4 weeks you will see the true colour settled and healed in your skin.
Try not to panic during the healing process, trust the process and know that it’s all normal.
How long will the luxè brow last?
The luxè brow lasts longest out of all the semi permanent brows, 2-3 years but an annual boost is recommended to keep the colour fresh.
The best results come from the “Do Nothing” or “Dry Healing” method. The absolute best results come from keeping your brows extremely DRY for the next 10 days! Keeping them dry makes them retain more detail, better color, and more definition so they come out luxurious once healed! It sounds annoying and hard work! but can be done if you’re dedicated. Here’s how…
For the first 4 hours after the procedure dab the brows with a clean dry cotton pad or tissue. This is to make sure of no lymphatic liquid is remaining on the surface of the brow.
Keep your face directly out of the shower stream & do your best to carefully wash hair and keep face as dry as possible. Also make sure showers aren’t to hot as too much steam can harm brows as well.
When washing your face, be sure not to splash water onto your face like we normally do. Instead use a washcloth or disposable cleansing wipe to wash AROUND the brows, making sure they stay dry!
Do not apply any make up or moisturiser to either your brow or your forehead for AT LEAST 2 weeks.
No heavy exercising or sweating for at least 10 days post procedure. If you want the best color and detail retention, this is crucial.
After 2 weeks you may wash your face normally, including your brows! with a gentle face wash, such as Cetaphil. ( make sure for all your facial products to be oil free for longer lasting brows).
