Why is One Eyebrow Darker than the Other

Everyone has a favorite brow, right? One has superior shape, length, arch, and everything else, and no matter how hard we try, the other cannot match it. Many people have one eyebrow that is higher than the other or darker than the other. In this post, we will discuss why is one eyebrow darker than the other. To achieve symmetry, we may spend time in front of the mirror plucking stray hairs and filling in other places as required.

Our eyebrows are permanent proof that our naive preteen selves went a bit overboard with grooming for many of us, and we’re still paying the price. Who needs similar eyebrows? We’ve all heard the statement, “your eyebrows should be sisters, not twins.” Let’s all celebrate their individuality. However, we didn’t predict finding that there is genuine science behind this specific bit of beautiful wisdom. 

When doing permanent makeup with the Microblading, Machine, or the Softap Technique, many things may occur; however, the most memorable moment is when a customer looks in the mirror and says, “Oh, no!” The color of one of your eyebrows is different from the other! 

When I was studying permanent makeup at Softap Permanent Cosmetics, I remember it happened to me as I completed my first set of eyebrows. It struck me that the first brow was darker than the other.

My Questions Are:

Perhaps I need to continue to enhance the second brow?

Perhaps I didn’t make the same touches or passes?

Could it be that I used greater force on the first?

I inquired of my teacher, Nancy. Her reaction was straightforward: “Don’t panic!”

When the Softap color is inserted into the skin, it comes into touch with oxygen in the air and begins oxidizing. This produces a darker appearance. It is the same process that occurs when an apple slice is left out for some time.

When one eyebrow is completed, the oxidization process starts immediately. By the time you complete the second brow, the oxidation process has just begun on the most recent one. Ten minutes after filling in both brows, the color will be the same if you wait. If the customer notices the difference, you must give her a satisfactory explanation.

Customers are concerned not just because their brows seem different but also because they are darker than intended. In addition to discussing the oxidization process, you must explain that the color recovers lighter and more uniformly than it appeared initially after the procedure. A comprehensive description of the healing process allows the client to relax.

Tips for getting the eyebrows repaired to the ideal matching hues and avoiding this situation are as follows:

  • Work the same length of time on both eyebrows and make the same number of taps and passes.
  • I like to work on both eyebrows simultaneously, completing one pass in one eyebrow, then one pass in the other, returning to the first eyebrow for the second pass, and so on.
  • Apply the same force to the taps or strokes in both eyebrows.

The optimal time to show her a mirror is immediately after the first five minutes of work. Typically, after the first pass, the desired hue will be visible.

Explain to your customers that the colors will oxidize and darken by 30-40 percent over three to four days. On the fifth day, the color may lighten, and one month after the treatment, your client will see the final result, which matches the hue she observed immediately after the surgery.
