This girl ended up with her face ruined wanting perfect eyebrows
Getting treatments in order to enhance one’s natural looks is not a bad thing to try out. Treatments can cure and also makes one look beautiful.
One such body part that needs constant care is the eyebrows. Girls go to extreme measures to keep their brows well maintained. Threading, plucking and waxing are all painful and regular procedures that girls and men both undergo multiple times in a month.
One girl in UK underwent a HD brow treatment which promised fuller and well groomed eye brows. But things took a turn for worse for the girl.
1 Polly Smith
19 year old Polly Smith is a resident of Buckinghamshire, U.K. she is a dancer and a student of performing arts. Already having a naturally beautiful face, Polly wanted to look good for her auditions. She wanted her eyebrows specially to look fuller and well groomed.
She wanted her eyebrows to look more be like those of model Cara Delevingne. Many women are trying to recreate the look of Delevingne all over the U.K. and are trying every means possible to achieve the results. Polly also wanted the same results and visited her local salon which offered a HD brow treatment to make the eyebrows fuller and more beautiful.
2 What is the HD brow treatment?
HD brows treatment is 7 step eyebrow shaping treatment. The treatment involves techniques like tinting, waxing and threading. It also involves using dyes and chemicals in order to shape the eyebrow in a perfect look.
In involves treatment at every 4 weeks. Also one has to take a patch test to confirm for any allergies to any sort of chemicals or treatments 48 hours prior to the start of the treatment. Also the part of the treatment is to dye the eyebrows for 10 minutes in order to retain a particular color.
3 What happened after the treatment?
Polly woke up the next day unable to open her eyes. The chemicals and the dye used in the treatment had damaged her eyebrows. She visited a doctor and he confirmed that it was an allergic reaction to the eyebrow dye used in the HD brow treatment.
Though Polly says she completed an allergy patch test 2 days prior to the treatment, as required to do so. The result of the patch test did not indicate any problems with her.
4 The damage continues
Polly’s doctor has suggested that the allergic reaction could permanently scar her face. The owner of the beauty salon which Polly visited said that they had given Polly the skin test to test for any allergic reactions and that the test results showed nothing with respect to any allergies to any of the products used in the treatment. One guess is the allergic reactions may be a part of hormonal changes.
The beauty salon said that they offered to compensate Polly financially, including giving her 20 pounds to cover the cost of antibiotics and anti-histamines that Polly is now on to counteract the effects of the allergic reactions.
Polly says that her eyebrows have started to fall off and have become patchier that they were before. She says if the scar becomes permanent; it could affect her as she is a professional dancer and her auditions could have a negative effect because of the scars. Polly is now warning any other people out there who are looking to undergo the same treatment, “You should think twice about doing something which could scar your face,” she said. “I don’t think it is worth the risk.”
