The next generation in Professional Eyebrow Tinting.
Elleebana’s innovative formula helps to strengthen hair, restore growth and the natural shape of the eyebrows. Our Professional range of Elleebana Brow Henna consists of 7 highly pigmented, luxurious colours, perfect for each skin type and tone, and can easily be mixed and customised to create true brow magic.
Elleebana’s Brow Henna colouring agents are derived from a Henna plant or Henna tree. The highest quality of Henna is derived when extracted from the leaves and flowers of the henna plant and offers far more superior skin stain or brow colouration.
Elleebana has worked for a number of years to source the best possible suppliers of the highest quality henna plants and use a manufacturing process that maintains the integrity of the colour to a very high superiority.
The way Elleebana Brow Henna works on the hair and skin structure is incredibly unique in comparison to tinting. Tinting uses an oxidant to open the cuticle of the hair and allows colour to penetrate the brow hair cortex through the oxidation process. Henna on the other hand, acts like a blanket over the hair and provides a coating to the hair shaft, coating the top layers of the hair cuticle only, this helps to give the appearance of a thicker, softer and smoother hair and eyebrow.
Microblading and Microshading are two forms of eyebrow micropigmentation. Both treatments are ideal for people who have patchy, uneven, or nonexistent eyebrows due to over-plucking or medical conditions.
Microblading implants pigment into tiny etches in the skin which resemble fine hair strokes. When microblading is done well, it should look extremely natural, blending seamlessly into any existing eyebrow hair (if present). Results heal very soft and “wispy”.
Microshading implants pigment over the entire surface of the skin in the brow area, rather than in individual hair strokes. The healed result is similar to a powdery makeup look.
Choose Microblading if:
-you have healthy, non-sensitive, non-oily skin in the brow area
– you desire a subtle and “wispy” brow
– you typically wear little to no makeup
-you want to see individual hair strokes
Choose Microshading if:
-you have very sensitive, thin, sun-damaged or oily skin in the brow area
– you desire a more defined eyebrow, similar to soft powdery makeup
Some clients are great candidates for a Combo Brow, which combines both techniques. If you are not sure which technique is right for you, have no fear! We will figure it out together at the time of your appointment.
One of the beautiful things about micropigmentation is that it lasts 1-3 years. Microshading typically last a little longer than Microblading. Either way, a yearly color boost is recommended to keep your brows looking perfect. It would not be ideal for microblading/microshading to last forever. Not only do brow trends change, but gravity draws your eyebrows downward with age. Since these techniques are designed to fade gradually over time, we can make adjustments over the years to allow your brows to keep a lifted and youthful appearance.
These are very meticulous procedures which require a great deal of attention to detail. Two sessions are required- the initial session, and the perfecting session performed 6-8 weeks after the first. Your initial session will last approximately 2 hours. This may seem like a long appointment, but rest assured the time spent will be worth the final result. During your initial session, your face will be measured carefully to determine the ideal brow shape for your individual bone structure. The shape will be drawn on carefully and measured again for symmetry, and all hair outside of the new shape will be removed. I will then formulate the perfect pigment color to match your existing brow or hair color before the treatment begins. Your perfecting session 6-8 weeks later will last about 60-90 minutes.
Eyebrow micropigmentation is appropriate for a wide variety of skin types. However, some people are not good candidates due to certain contraindications. People with the following conditions are NOT good candidates:
-history of keloid scarring
-use of Accutane within the past year
-skin disease or injury in the eyebrow area
-poor wound healing
-use of blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or fish oil within a week of treatment
-currently undergoing chemotherapy
-hemophilia, uncontrolled diabetes, or auto-immune disorders
– currently pregnant or breastfeeding
These treatments are generally very well tolerated, though some people may find it uncomfortable at times. A topical numbing cream is used before and during the procedure to keep you comfortable. Many clients say that the tweezing is the worst part!
Microblading and/or Microshading is a two-step process that includes the initial appointment and the perfecting session at 6-8 weeks. Both of these appointments are crucial for an optimal result. Touch-ups are recommended yearly. The following circumstances may require additional touch-ups:
– very oily skin
– previous tattooing or scar tissue in the eyebrow
– poor aftercare
– excess sun exposure
– use of acids or retinol products or facial exfoliation procedures
Immediately after: Your eyebrows will look darker and sharper than they will end up healing.
Days 1-4: The new pigment will continue to appear darker, thicker and more noticeable than the healed result.
Days 4-8: Your eyebrows will look flaky and/or scabby, and start to flake off.
Right after your brows heal, it may appear that the pigment is too light. Your skin forms new layers over the pigment which can make the color look “foggy” temporarily. It will take a few weeks for the pigment to fully resurface, and this is why we wait 6 weeks before the perfecting session. After the first week, you will be able to wear makeup if necessary to cover any patchy areas between the two treatments.
