In the field of eyebrows, the world of aesthetics always presents new techniques, to thicken, reconstruct or give symmetry. As with all the other parts of the face, in reality the eyebrows are fine as they are, despite the passing fashions that one day want them super thin, and the next ultra thick and defined.
The pixel brows is one of the newest methods to redefine brows, and it does it by donating one shaded style.
Pixel brows: what is it?
Tattooed or drawn eyebrows, today you can choose different techniques to define the eyebrows. Also called “microshading“,”powder brows” or “eyeshadow effect“, Pixel brows is an aesthetic technique of semi-permanent makeup for the eyebrows.
As the microblading, the best known technique today, microshading is a treatment of dermopigmentation carried out with a special tool that injects the color into the skin. The difference between the two methodologies lies in the stretch that is carried out, and consequently in the result.
The pixel brows in fact consists in making gods small dots in the holes between the hairs of the eyebrows, taking advantage of the shadow of the existing hair. The effect is thus more natural and nuanced than microblading, in which strokes are drawn instead to reproduce the real hairs.
The pixel brows was born only a few years ago in the United States, and since then it has achieved great success, first among stars and then also among ordinary people, thanks to its delicacy and less intense and defined effect than other techniques. .

In fact, the skin initially tends to purge external elements such as the color of the pigment, and it is necessary to review it when it has stabilized. The procedure is the same, but after the second session the effect is more lasting.
Before any procedure, an anesthetizing ointment is applied to the eyebrow area, so that the treatment is absolutely painless.
