Color Correction

DESCRIPTION

If you’ve had previous microblading, ombre brows or any form of permanent makeup (brows, lips or eyeliner), and it healed down to an undesirable color, we may be able to correct that color for you. With the use of corrective pigments, we are able to:

 – Lighten dark brows (if removal isn’t recommended)

 – Brighten dull color (gray, ash colored)

 – Camouflage unwanted red, gray, blue, purple, or green colors

This service can be done as a standalone service if you are happy with the shape of your brows, lips or eyeliner. We will have you in for the color correction only.

If you are in need of a new shape for your brows, lips or eyeliner, you must book an “initial” service for the corresponding area/s. Depending on the severity of the color correction, you may need a separate color correction session, and then an initial appointment approximately 6-8 weeks post correction. In some cases, color correction may not be an option and removal may be necessary before attempting a color correction.

To be sure, email photos of the area/s you’d like corrected prior to booking this service. Our email address is info@colorlabnyc.com. Allow 1-2 business days for a response.

**PLEASE NOTE: Prior to your artist performing this service, you will be asked to complete a digital medical history and service consent form, and upload a picture of your government issued ID with your date of birth (ID is required for ALL clients receiving this service per New York City Health Department regulations). The digital platform we utilize is HIPPA compliant. No exceptions.
  • Color correction is the process of fixing the color/ tone/ hue of pigment left in your skin from old microblading, ombre brows, nano brows, and traditional eyebrow tattoos.
  • Your artist will assess your brows to determine what color is present in the skin and the course of action best suited for you. Once the color that needs correction has been determined, your artist will find the proper pigment color that will counteract the unwanted color. 
  • Simply put, we use pigment colors that neutralize the unwanted color and bring it back to a beautiful shade of brown. The unwanted colors can include, but are not limited to: red, blue, purple, green, gray and orange. 

We cannot say with certainty how many sessions you will need. Prepare for at least 2 sessions about 6 to 8 weeks apart.

  • Please DO NOT consume alcohol 24 hours before your appointment and NO caffeine the day of your appointment.
  • 3-5 days before your appointment, gently exfoliate your brows with a washcloth, loofah, Luv Scrub or any gentle physical exfoliant you may have in very light circular motions to rid the brows of any dead skin build-up. Make sure to moisturize daily with a gentle moisturizer to keep your lips soft and supple.
  • With the permission of your physician, please do NOT take any blood thinners or fish oils for at least 48 hours prior to your appointment, as these items can cause you to bleed excessively. Again, please make sure to speak with your physician prior to stopping the use of any blood thinning agents.

While everyone’s pain tolerance varies, we do our best to minimize any discomfort you may feel by using topical numbing agents. You are welcome to take an Advil or Tylenol prior to your appointment, but NOT Aspirin.

Ladies, your sensitivity increases when you are menstruating. Please keep this in mind when booking your appointments.

  • Brows are cleansed.
  • Pictures are taken.
  • We go over all paperwork together and discuss what to expect from the appointment, as well as your aftercare instructions.
  • Brows are assessed and corrective pigment colors are chosen.
  • Topical numbing agents will be applied as necessary.
  • Work begins and may take up to an hour. 
  • Once complete, after photos are taken.
  • Clients are given an aftercare kit for at home use.
  • On the day of your appointment, dab your brows every 1-2 hours until bedtime with the pads we provide. Right before heading to bed, apply a thin layer of the skin protectant.
  • Starting the day after your appointment, you will cleanse your brows in the morning and right before bed with the foaming cleanser we’ve provided. Throughout the day you will apply the skin protectant 3-4 times daily. Follow these steps for 14 days. **Cleanser and skin protectant will be provided to you.**
  • Be careful with how you sleep, especially if you are a side or stomach sleeper because you don’t want to put any pressure or accidentally rub your brows while sleeping.
  • Avoid submerging your face in water (includes the shower, pools, beach, etc) for 14 days. If you need to clean your brows, do so by only using water on a clean cloth and patting the brows.
  • DO NOT peel or pick at your brows during the healing process, as it may damage the skin and cause scar tissue, and prematurely remove pigment. 
  • Avoid eyebrow tinting for 7 days before and at least 3 weeks after your session.
  • Avoid excessive sweating (WORKING OUT), pools, sun tanning and tanning beds for 14 days.
  • Do NOT ever use any anti-aging products, exfoliants (chemical or mechanical) or Retin A on or around the brow area.
  • ***PLEASE NOTE: Color will be lost during the healing process. This is common for everyone. How much color will differ from person to person, so please do not stress out about this. During your touch up session 6-8 weeks after the initial session, we will perfect your shape and color where necessary.
  • Your brows WILL BE DARKER the day after your session for up to 7-10 days while you’re healing.
  • Scabbing/flaking is normal and will vary from client to client. During this process you may lose pigment. This is normal. Please DO NOT pick or peel your brows, as you can remove all of your pigment. Let them peel on their own. 
  • If your brows feel tight, dry or itchy, simply apply a rice grain size amount of the protectant we gave you. Do not over do it! Scabs that are too moist or have too much protectant will prematurely fall off and pull the color out with it. Be sparing. Please.

We use several different cosmetic tattoo pigment and topical anesthetic brands for our procedures. Should you require a copy of the MSDS, we can provide that to you by request.
