New Year, New You: The importance of having it done right the first time.

Aside from keeping rain and sweat out of our vision, our eyebrows play a significant role in expressing emotions, be it anger or happiness, sadness or surprise. This also largely explains an almost universal obsession with brow-grooming when it comes to making ourselves look better.

For several years now the art of eyebrow embroidery, otherwise known as microblading or eyebrow tattooing, has been a popular aesthetic procedure among both women and more recently, men. After all, what’s not to love about the convenience of enjoying an attractive set of brows without even trying?

Microblading, when done safely and correctly, can last for several years with little to no maintenance. This makes it all the more important to choose the right service provider to ensure you obtain your desired shape, length and quality of brows from the very start.

It’ll certainly save you the hassle and extra fees of having to search for alternative artists to get your brows ‘fixed’. As they always say, prevention is better than cure!

Why Gentle Cactus?

No two beauty service providers are ever the same. Understanding that it is important for your facial features to stay perfect through better or worse, our signature Eyebrow Embroidery treatment uses only the finest-quality ingredients on our customers before, during and after the procedure. This will extend the lifespan of your embroidered eyebrows, while ensuring that the risk of skin reactions is minimised as much as possible.

To begin with, Gentle Cactus uses a special SUPE pigment formula imported from Europe that is cruelty- and vegan-free, hypo-allergenic and non-reactive to magnets, meaning it is 100% MRI safe. It is also the only pigment in the market that guarantees no colour change or fading after healing. Neither will it produce a ‘blooming’ or ‘bleeding’ effect often seen in tattoos or embroidered eyebrows using poor-quality pigments.

Your wellness, our priority

Safety is the number 1 concern before beauty at Gentle Cactus, where we require each new client to undergo consultation at the first visit so as to ensure suitability for each treatment. Often, we will even have to turn potential clients away due to pre-existing skin or health conditions which may affect the final result or even trigger undesirable reactions.

Aside from providing detailed explanations and instructions before and after each session, our eyebrow embroidery customers are also given a complete After Care kit of products that comes in handy for maintaining and ensuring ideal post-treatment results. Likewise, only the highest-quality sterile, disposable needles and other tools are used during each session to embroidery hair-like strokes during microblading. Having a strict no-reuse policy for our needles ensures maximum protection against infections, ensuring the longevity of your new set of brows for a longer time to come.

What’s new in 2020

In order to serve our customers even better this year, Gentle Cactus has enhanced its signature Eyebrow Embroidery packages to include a total of three sessions and a refreshment session to its Customised, Browfix and Menbrow services (compared to two sessions without the refreshment session previously). This ensures maximum satisfaction for clients who are planning to have dark or perfect brows for longer; though do not that those with oily or problematic skin may require more than one refreshment session a year.

Gentle Cactus is a business that provides free Eyebrow Embroidery treatments to cancer and alopecia patients. We thank our customers for supporting us in empowering these individuals with the beauty and confidence they deserve.
