What is Eyebrow 6D Sculpture?
6D Sculpture is a tattoo technique that fills brows out or reshapes them by drawing on tiny lines that look like individual hairs. It leaves brows looking natural, and is done with a handheld tool. It is done by making small punctures, implanting pigment under the skin in the upper dermal layer, but doesn’t go as deep as a normal tattoo would. It’s also semi-permanent. Your 6D Sculpture brows should last between two to five years, about three years on average. The actual 6D Sculpture is probably the shortest part of your appointment.
You need to prepare.
If you drink a lot, take aspirin, or use retinol, stop one week before your treatment. Retinol makes your skin thinner, and you will bleed a little more. Avoid blood thinners, aspirin, and alcohol.
It doesn’t hurt (too much).
Pain is relative. Some feel more than others. Overall, it feels like little scratches. You will feel it, but it’s not unbearable. We will use topical numbing cream for reducing the discomfort.
Aftercare is essential.
This means protecting freshly bladed brows from all moisture. After the procedure, you should avoid sweaty workouts or washing your face with water. Some patients experience some itching and redness during the first week, which Vaseline can alleviate. Brows will look slightly darker at first, but the color will fade 30 to 40 percent.
6D Sculpture is an investment.
The first 6D Sculpture treatment costs up to $950. While lower-priced services are available, we caution against visiting inexperienced technicians. Remember, 6D Sculpture is a form of tattooing.
