Ombre Powder EyeBrows
The Longest Lasting EyeBrow perfection treatment across the world
If you’re obsessed with brows like us, you know the pain of filling in your arches daily with every product imaginable from pencils to pomade. With that said, you’ve probably dabbled in or at least heard of microblading — the semi-permanent eyebrow procedure that adds hair-like strokes to your brows to help you cut back on time spent on filling them in.
NOW there’s a newer technique that’s superior to microblading — ombré shading.
Ombré shading is the newest trend in eyebrow semi-permanent makeup. It gives a soft shaded filled brow look. Once healed, it is more natural looking than solid color. It gives great definition and depth to the brows. Whether the client is looking for a light soft shading or show-stopping bold brows, it can be customized according to the client’s desire.
Microblading consists of individual hair-like strokes that mimic the natural hair of eyebrow as opposed to a penciled look. The results are lighter compared to shading and unfortunately not every skin type is good for microblading. The beauty of shading is that it can be combined with microblading to achieve a realistic look.
the procedure does not affect your natural hair growth, however your brow shape, once defined cant be disturbed by new hair. You can completely skip the threading visits to the salon and remove the extra hair around the designed shape with electronic or manual brow shapers available in the market. Saves you hours of time in makeup and salon visits.
A lot of your fee goes towards making the safety arrangement. Everything is sterlized, used only once and thrown away. The products are FDA approved and highest quality in worldwide PMU industry to ensure most comfortable experience during and after the procedure.
There are multiple basic rules with respect to brow gap, length, arch and height which we explain to you during the procedure. The brow design is done according to your bone structure, shape of your face, your age and your personal preference. The cosmetological geometry tools help us design the brows that suit your personality. I’ll measure up your eyebrows using a Microblading Ruler and Golden Ratio tools to choose the perfect shape of brow which is individual to each client.
Shading technique is versatile as the technique can be performed alone as well as combining with microblading whether the client is looking for a subtle or bold brow. The retention and healing results tend to be better in comparison to microblading. In addition, clients with certain skin types are not the best candidates for microblading, whereas shading works on all skin types.
Before making an appointment, the client should carefully read over the information regarding the procedure, including precare and aftercare as there are contradictions. Unfortunately, not everyone is eligible for semi-permanent makeup. In addition, timing is very important as you will go through some healing phases, therefore, if you are planning to go on a sunny vacation, have facial treatments prebooked, or have special events planned, you may want to book your appointment accordingly.
On the day of the procedure, we will have a consultation and discuss your desired brows. Followed by consultation, I begin drawing the shape of your brows to build a frame. We work together for shaping, styling and color selection. The client will have the opportunity to see shape and color before doing any actual shading work. Once all is approved, we proceed with shading of the brows. For the client’s comfort, I usually provide a small mirror to the client so they can see the progress.
The appointment usually takes approximately two to three hours. If it’s a combo (microblading and shading), the appointment may take a little longer.
Much like microblading, a good candidate should not have a serious health and skin condition. As a precaution, we do not perform the procedure on pregnant or nursing women. Fortunately, this technique is fantastic for all skin types, including oily.
The sensation varies from person to person. A medical grade topical anesthetic cream will be used for numbing before and during the procedure to make the clients feel comfortable and as pain-free as possible.
I use a couple of brands for shading that I love. At times, I also mix colors to best match the client’s desire, skin tone, hair and brow color
It is essentially relaxing! For best-healed results, the client should avoid working out, sweating, any makeup around the brows for at least two weeks. Most importantly, it is important not to pick at the scabs/dry skin. The scabs need to shed naturally. It is also recommended to stay out of heavy sun exposure and avoid any facial treatments throughout the healing process. After the procedure, the client will be given an aftercare ointment to be applied two to three times a day after washing the treated area. It is very important to keep your newly shaded brows as clean as possible.
Could you explain the process of healing? What should someone expect after one week, two weeks, three weeks – up until your follow-up appointment?
Immediately following the procedure, your brows will appear darker and bolder. This is the initial healing process and it can last up to a week or a little longer. During the second week, you can expect some scabbing or flaking of the skin in pieces. It is very important not to pick or peel at the scabs as you need to allow the scabs/dry skin to come off naturally on its own to prevent scarring and premature pigment loss. Unfortunately, the scabbing is not the most glamorous stage while healing. The scabbing period varies from person to person. Generally, all scabs are shed approximately by the end of the second week. Once the scabs have fallen off, the brows will appear softer and lighter. The complete healing process takes about six weeks at which time the true color and density of the brows are clearly revealed. During the follow-up touch-up, adjustments can be made.
No. there is no downtime associated with the treatment. Redness and swelling will dissipate within an hour after. Your brows will appear darker initially, but not so dark that you will be prevented from your activities of daily living.
How long should one wait for their follow-up/touch-up? Is it mandatory? Included with first service?
The follow-up touch-up is usually within six to eight weeks and it’s included with the initial session. It is highly recommended that the client takes advantage of the complimentary touch-up as the healing results cannot be guaranteed. During the touch-up, we can add more definition and/or density and make other adjustments as necessary.
Periodic touchups will make it last permanently, however one procedure has lifespan of 2 to 4 years depending on your skin type, and your lifestyle
