Frequently Asked Questions
A Powder/Ombre brow is a form of permanent makeup that gives a similar effect to wearing powder or pencil on your brows. The procedure is performed using a micro-pigmentation machine. The results tend to last longer than microblading as the pigment is inserted deeper than the manual method of microblading and is best suited for individuals with oily skin or little to no brow hair.
Ombre brows can last anywhere from 1-3 years. The retention will depend on a number of factors, such as lifestyle, skin type, sun exposure, health condition, etc.
Some clients describe feeling minimal pain and discomfort comparable to threading or waxing; while others report feeling barely any pain at all. The amount of pain will depend on the client's pain tolerance and body's reaction to anesthetic. We use two types of very effective topical anesthetic. We always do our best to make sure you are comfortable. Anesthetic can be applied throughout the procedure at any time if needed.
The appointment generally takes 3 hours from start to finish. This includes everything from the designing process to the numbing of the brows and the tattooing itself.
If you have reference photos, please feel free to bring them into your appointment.
If you're going to prepare your eyebrows by waxing or threading, please be sure to do so at least 48 hours before your scheduled appointment.
*This is not required. We can easily remove stray brows after we design your brows.
Leading up to your appointment it is recommended that you moisturize daily with coconut oil.
Use a Retin-A before or after the appointment.
Do not drink alcohol within 24 hours of your appointment.
Avoid caffeine within 12 hours of your appointment.
Alcohol and caffeine consumption within close proximity of your appointment can cause excessive bleeding which will affect how well your skin retains pigment.
Usually, ombre powder brows will need to be touched up just once every 1-3 years. The frequency of touch ups will depend on factors such as skin type, skin care routine, environmental factors etc.
