You wouldn't put fresh makeup on top of yesterdays!
For the long-term maintenance of brows you love! Particularly suitable for hair strokes, ombré brows and other delicate work
Our industry has changed dramatically in recent years. The beauty and skills offered by technicians who tirelessly practice and further their education, allows a quality of work not previously seen
The pigments used for microblading and permanent makeup have also changed, they implant in the skin much more easily, allowing less pigment to be used more superficially in the skin. Gone are the days of solid tattooed brows!
Hair stroke brows and microblading are so popular, and some work does look truly stunning, but what happens over the coming months and years to the fine hair strokes? The truth is they blur out over time and techs can’t always go over the same stroke again without them too thick
Add to this that some pigments last a very long time, typically black pigment, creating new problems when it comes to maintaining and correcting in the future, when brows have faded to a more ash grey colour
Here’s where Botched Ink Revive steps in, using our lightening serum to freshen up any existing pigment, removing just enough for the new pigment to look beautiful
Experienced and Passionate Techs want you to hear this!
To work on existing pigment it’s best if the old color has faded by 70-80%, then any new pigment will look fresh and as intended. Any more than this and it’s just a coverup and brows will look more solid
But the next time you need a refresh, how saturated is your skin now? Do you wait a few more years till the pigment fades more, or do you have a session or two of a gentle removal treatment to speed things along
The colour of pigment molecules fades over time, but the pigment molecule remains in the skin forever. With multiple top-ups, this leads to pigment saturation and weird colours, it's best to deal with pigment as you go along, not when you have a problem
Stay with the tech who did your beautiful brows if you can, they know your skin and the pigments they used. And if they're not talking to you about removal treatments, I'm sure they'll be grateful you understand the process
Planning to incorporate Botched Ink Revive into your long term treatment plan will allow your technician to continue delivering their best work. Skin with more than 50% pigment saturation is difficult to work with, much of the implanted color won’t heal in, so it's wasted money – This is where Botched Ink Rescue is needed to turn back the clock on the old pigment!
