Women who have reached the age of menopause not only experience a rapid change in hormone levels, but it is accompanied with unwanted side-effects. The most notorious of all menopause side-effects is hot flashes; this is a sudden sensation of intense heat that leaves women flushed red and drenched with sweat. Perspiration on the face and forehead is especially unfortunate for those who pencil in their brows with makeup because those brows just sweat right off. Ruth Swissa claims that many costumers have complained about this and come in to get their eyebrows permanently put on. One of Ruth’s customers said she had to re-pencil in her eyebrows at least eight times a day because these hot-flashes would rinse them right out every time. She explained how she would be in constant panic and distress about whether her brows were still visible every couple of hours. Permanent eyebrows has proved to be an effective route for this unfortunate side effect; Ruth’s patients give wonderful feedback regarding this procedure. With permanent eyebrows, you won’t ever have to worry about your brows rubbing off in the heat of an unpleasant hot-flash.

A: When getting permanent eyebrows done, there is an ongoing misconception that one would have to get rid of all current eyebrow hair. Ruth Swissa is here to clear up this myth and provide you with information that’s actually quite the contrary. At Ruth Swissa Professional Permanent Makeup and Skin, we put the utmost importance to eyebrow hair, looking to preserve each strand. Many customers have asked Ruth if they would need to shave their eyebrows clean in order to get permanent eyebrows but this is a false idea. Ruth Swissa uses the eyebrow hair as a simple add-on to the already 3-d looking pigment she applies just to provide you with realistic and natural result.
On the other hand, there are many customers who come to Ruth Swissa who suffer from hair-loss diseases such as alopecia or trichotillomania and don’t have any eyebrow hair for Ruth to work with. Not to worry, Ruth has an artistic eye and skillful technique, she is able to apply permanent makeup pigment in a way where the strokes look like real hair. Ruth never uses generic stencils that were in style twenty years ago. Each of our clients leave with natural-looking eyebrows that suit and enhance their individual facial expression.
