LADY@LXG: My eyebrow touch up at Allure Beauty

 For those of you who followed my latest eyebrow embroidery session at Allure Beauty's newly renovated outlet At Bukit Batok in August this year, you would know that I had my touchup due this month. For those of you who missed my post, you can read about it here.
Unfortunately, due to work commitments, I couldn't make it there as planned in September, instead, I found myself making my way to their Tiong Bahru outlet last week (almost two months since my first treatment) to get my brows touched up. As soon as I stepped into the cool confines of Allure Beauty, I was greeted with a big smile and a cooling cup of ginseng tea. A therapist then applied numbing cream, topped up my cup of tea and left me to de-stress. 

After around 30 minutes when the numbing cream had taken effect and I was feeling suitably numb around the brow area, my original therapist examined my brows and admired the fact that two months after the first drawing, it was still looking awesome, thanks to me diligently taking care of it as instructed!
My therapist then touched up my brows, drawing in individual hairs using a hand-held eyebrow embroidery tool, similar to a thick pen. This detail-oriented process is carried out to match the natural growth and direction of my own eyebrows and fill in any gaps and darken any areas that had lightened. The procedure was very fast and painless. In around just 20 minutes I was done. 
Despite the painless procedure, my therapist handed me a tube of antiseptic cream to be applied five times a day for a week, to prevent infection as the process involves the penetration of colour into the top layer of the skin. You will also be handed a list of care-instructions that I advise you to follow as much as possible, if you want your brows to last. Try and avoid wetting the brows for the first week - and facials are a no-no during this crucial period as well. Based on my previous experience, I expect my brows to last between 18 to 24 months!
