A cancer diagnosis can be life-altering. For many patients, it means accepting the new changes that the body experiences during and after cancer treatments.
The vast majority of cancer patients who’ve survived chemotherapy or radiation struggle with some form of hair loss. Though the most common form of hair loss is from the scalp, the loss of eyebrow hair is also a prevalent concern among cancer survivors.
Eyebrows are distinct features that add to daily, non-verbal communication. The various shapes and movements are intimately tied to a person’s feelings, confidence, and aesthetic expression. So naturally, eyebrows and facial expressions are intertwined.
During the month of October, Dermace Laser Clinic is celebrating cancer survivors by offering free eyebrow microshading services.

What is Microshading?
Microshading or powder brows is a cosmetic, semi-permanent makeup procedure where a technician uses a needle that places semi-permanent pigment in the upper layer of skin in a stippling technique via a machine – similar to a tattoo procedure.
The procedure is designed to create eyebrows with a soft powder effect – very similar to the looks of powder makeup.
How does Microshading compare to other eyebrow treatments?
The process for microshadowing involves the technician placing tiny dots over the brow area. Once healed, the microshading produces a filled-in make-up look. Comparatively, microblading attempts to recreate the shape of eyebrow hairs, by placing hair-like strokes over the brow area. If you have an oilier skin type, you may prefer microshading because it will be ideal for longer-lasting results.
Is Microshading right for me?
For clients who draw on their eyebrows every day, this can be an amazing, beautiful solution that is suitable for all skin types!
It is also a great alternative for anyone experiencing unwanted hair loss because natural eyebrow hairs do not need to be present.
How should I prepare for my treatment?
Avoid caffeine and tanning beds 24 hours before the procedure to avoid burning and bleeding. No tweezing or waxing eyebrow hairs one week before the procedure.
How many sessions do I need for microshading?
Dermace clients often have great healed results after one session. Complimentary touch-up session may also be needed after 6-8 weeks to ensure the brows are perfect and the color is even throughout the whole eyebrow.
How long do the results last?
Microshaded brows last for 1 to 3 years, depending on the client, their skin type, and lifestyle. Touch ups may be needed to ensure lasting results.
Does it hurt?
The procedure is not painful but clients may experience minor discomfort. The technician will numb the eyebrows with a topical cream at your appointment for optimal comfort.
Are there any side effects?
Microshading is generally safe, but side effects may occur. Clients may experience some minor symptoms following the procedure including itchiness, swelling, and redness around the eyebrows.
What is the FREE Eyebrow Microshading initiative offered at Dermace?
This October, Dermace Laser Clinic is giving back by running a FREE microshading initiative for cancer survivors. The goal is simple: restoring some hope and lifting spirits while having one less thing to worry about.
