Cosmetic Tattooing – Eyebrow Tattoo
Thousands of women are turning to cosmetic tattoos for their incredible timesaving and beauty-enhancing abilities. The Simply Laser clinic in Brisbane now offers this popular semi-permanent makeup procedure, with a bespoke design to perfectly suit each of our clients.
Whether you’re after a very subtle enhancement of your natural features or a bolder, more defined look, our experienced cosmetic professionals can customise your procedure to meet your needs. The most common cosmetic tattoo procedures we perform are to enhance eyebrows (eyebrow tattoo and eyebrow feathering) and eyeliner, with clients flocking to Leona for her expertise in creating a flawlessly natural look.
What is Cosmetic Tattooing?
A cosmetic tattoo procedure, sometimes referred to as a paramedical tattoo procedure, involves pushing semi-permanent pigment into the surface of the skin with a fine blade. What results, is a semi permanent makeup solution that can last up to eighteen months. To minimise discomfort levels, anesthetic creams are applied to the area before and throughout the procedure. The entire process usually takes no more than two hours, and no downtime is required. To make sure the colour of the tattoo lasts, one singular touch up is needed between the first and third month after the procedure.
What are the Benefits of Cosmetic Tattooing?
Can you imagine not having to shape your eyebrows or draw on eyeliner in the morning? Many women turn to cosmetic tattooing to save valuable time and feel their best during every hour of the day. Cosmetic tattoos can be designed to completely transform your facial structure and appearance, giving you a youthful glow and a newfound sense of confidence.
The field of cosmetic tattooing has come a long way in the past few years, resulting in beauty enhancements so natural that even your loved ones won’t be able to pinpoint why you look so incredible.

Can anyone have a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure?
Semi-permanent cosmetic procedures can do wonders for your confidence levels and save you a great deal of time. However, there are a few health problems that do not mix well with cosmetic tattooing. We do not recommend undergoing this procedure if you are pregnant, nursing, diabetic or undergoing chemotherapy. You should also avoid the procedure if you have epilepsy, major heart problems, skin irritations near the treated area, a viral infection, disease, any other cold/flu illness or if you have had botox in the past two months.
Are semi-permanent cosmetic procedures painful?
At Simply Laser, we use anesthetic creams before and throughout the procedure to minimise any discomfort. Also, the instrument used in cosmetic tattooing features very fine blades, much smaller than the needles used in a traditional body tattoo guns. This means that cosmetic tattooing is much less painful than a regular tattoo.
Are semi-permanent cosmetic procedures safe?
As long as you are having the procedure at a well-respected clinic with the right licenses and experienced staff, this procedure is perfectly safe. You can also make sure your procedure runs smoothly by reading through our before and after guidelines mentioned further down on this page.
Is there any downtime?
Fortunately, semi-permanent cosmetic procedures do not require any downtime. While there may be some swelling and general tenderness of the area in the days following the procedure, these side effects are unlikely to impact your day-to-day activities. In case you do experience some swelling, we recommend scheduling the procedure for a time when you don’t have any special events in the next few days.
What should I do before my cosmetic tattoo procedure?
Three days before your treatment, be sure not to undergo any waxing, tinting or tanning of the area, and make sure you do not have a sunburnt face. One day before your treatment, do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen. On the day of the procedure, be careful not to have any caffeine or alcohol, and make sure you don’t work out either. When booking your appointment, keep in mind that you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle, so it’s best to avoid this time.
What should I do after my cosmetic tattoo procedure?
For the first ten days following your procedure, do not use any water, cleansers, creams or make-up on the treated area. Avoid heavy sweating and sleeping on your face during this time for the best results. For the first four weeks after the procedure, avoid direct sunlight or tanning and stay away from other treatments such as chemical treatments, microdermabrasion, botox or facials. Make sure you do not rub, pick or scratch the treated area at all after your procedure. Instead let any dry skin naturally exfoliate off to avoid scarring or further skin irritations.
