WHAT IS OMBRÉ POWDER BROW?

Ombre powder brow is a semi-permanent, natural-looking eyebrow tattoo that lasts

1-3 years. Pigment is inserted using a machine to create soft, misty, powder-filled brows similar to the look of makeup. For this technique, the tail of the brow is darker and fades lighter towards the front of the brow.


A touch up is recommended within 4-6 weeks of your first procedure.

IS THIS THE SAME AS MICROBLADING?

No, Ombre Powder and Microblading are two different techniques. Ombre powder is less invasive than microblading. It keeps your skin integrity intact because the pigment is distributed lightly on top of the skin rather than using a blade to cut inside of your skin.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT WITH OMBRE BROWS?

With Ombre Powder, you can expect long lasting results. Note that results vary with every client depending on the following:


  • Skin type (dry skin retains pigment much longer compared to those with oily skin)

  • Aftercare

  • Sun exposure

  • Medication

  • Lifestyle


It is imperative that you follow all pre and post instructions provided by your practitioner to ensure high quality lasting results.

An initial as well as annual touch-up is highly recommended to keep eyebrow tattoo results looking fresh. 

DOES IT HURT?

Most clients experience very minor discomfort more than pain at the beginning of the procedure. Topical anesthesia is used after the outline of the brows during shading. Most clients do not feel pain after anesthesia has been applied.

WHAT IS THE APPOINTMENT DAY LIKE?

  • Upon arrival, you will be given a consent and medical history form to review and complete.

  •  Your forms will be reviewed followed by a brief consultation.

  • “Before” pictures will be taken.

  • Brow mapping/shaping.

  • Once the client agrees with the final shaping of brows, the procedure will begin with outlining the brows (done without numbing).

  • Shading brows (done with topical anesthetics).

  • “After” pictures will be taken.

  • Aftercare instructions will be provided.

HOW LONG DOES IS THE PROCEDURE?

On average, it will take 3-4 hours from start to finish. The procedure time will vary with each client depending on many factors. Below are some examples:


  • Previous tattoo work done. If a client had previous tattoo work on their brows, depending on how long it’s been or how it healed, a correction or a cover-up procedure may be necessary.

  • Brow mapping/shaping. Some clients may have a specific preference for their desired brow shape or size, some may not.

  • Skin type. The ease of pigment implantation may depend on the client’s skin type including but not limited oily, dry, skin with big or small pores, wrinkles, sensitive skin, sun damage, etc.

  • Excess bleeding. If a client bleeds excessively during the procedure, the blood will clog the pores and reject the pigment. It Is imperative that clients follow all pre-procedure rules prior to their appointment to reduce or prevent excess bleeding.
