Ombré Powder Brows vs Microblading
Although both microshading and microblading fall under the cosmetic tattooing umbrella, they use different tools and techniques to achieve different results. microblading uses a handheld tool with ultra-fine needles to implant pigment beneath the skin in hair-like strokes. Microshading, also referred to as powder brows or ombre brows, uses a tattoo gun to create pixel dots of pigment that heal to a powdery finish, which gives that soft, filled-in makeup look.
Ombré Powder Brows Cost
Given that microshading is a cosmetic tattooing technique that requires some major precision skills, the procedure definitely doesn’t come cheap. But, when you factor in all the time you’d spend doing your brows every morning, it makes it worth it.
Ombré brows last longer than Microblading, and are a much better option for clients with high amounts of naturally occurring oils in the skin, dark skin or corrections of faded permanent makeup giving that perfect Ombré makeup effect.
Ombré Powder Brows Benefits
- It’s gentler on the skin
If the idea of microblading cutting hair-like strokes into your skin makes you cringe, microshading may be a better option for you. Microshading’s technique makes small dots of pigment rather than strokes. Microshading is less invasive than microblading and gentler on the skin. This makes the microshading technique ideal for those with more sensitive and oily skin.
- You’ll look RTG when you wake up
Perhaps the most significant benefit and allure of microshaded brows, is that you just wake up with waterproof, smudgeproof, and smearproof eyebrows. No need to spend that extra time in the morning perfecting your brows every day (the struggle is real, people). And if you’re taking a dip in a pool during the summer or sweating it out on your spin bike, your brows will stay in place.
- It’s good for all skin types
Microshading can be beneficial for clients of all, skin types, and skin tones. If you want semi-permanent brows that look like your daily brow makeup, you’re a good candidate for microshading.
Ombré Powder Brows Results
Once your brows have healed after the procedure, you can expect a defined gradient brow or a softer, natural, shaded-in brow that blends with your existing brow, depending on the look you’re going for. This service is customized for each individual client to suit their unique facial features.
The microshading procedure can last one to three years, depending on the client. There are a few different factors that affect microshading’s longevity. One is the ink and pigment used and how it’s implanted into the skin. Inks and pigments are all formulated differently. Some are designed to fade and lighten gradually while others are considered more stable and longer-lasting. The deeper into the skin the ink is implanted, the longer it may last.
Your skin type also affects how long the microshading lasts. Oily skin may fade faster than dry skin due to the fact that oily skin has a faster rate of skin cell turnover and higher moisture production. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, sweating, and sun exposure, can also shorten microshading’s lifespan.
Ombré Powder Brows After Care
Our brow artist will give you specific aftercare instructions. Generally, though, the first few hours and couple of days after, your brows will likely look a bit red and swollen. This is normal. We recommend cleaning your brows morning and night with an antiseptic soap. Then rinse with water, pat dry with a clean towel, and apply a healing balm to moisturize the skin and speed up the recovery process. Repeat for the first 10 days. And, avoid putting any makeup or skin-care products directly on the brows during this time.
However, outside of the cleaning process, it’s important not to get your eyebrows wet for the first 10 days. That means no saunas, facials, hot showers, excessive sweating, or swimming until they heal. Like with regular tattoos, you may experience some scabbing and itching, but resist the urge and leave the area alone until it heals, which typically takes 10 to 14 days.
Side effects are typically minimal, but there is always risk with any form of tattooing. Any service involving skin trauma must be taken seriously as infection and/or irritation can occur. It is important that you do not receive any type of brow tattooing if you are pregnant or nursing, currently on Accutane, or taking any blood-thinning medications. It is also a good idea to check in with your doctor before proceeding with this service and let your artist know if you have any known allergies.
Once your brows are fully healed, we advise not using any chemical exfoliants directly on the brow area and applying SPF daily to help the results last longer.
