Your Ultimate Guide to Permanent eyebrows, how it works, how to choose which are best for you, in short, Everything You Need to Know.

Have you ever been curious or interested in semi-permanent EYEBROWS?Here we will explain -everything you need to know about Microblading, Powder brows, Ombre and Combination brows.

If you’re in the market for a new beauty procedure, you may have noticed the range of eyebrow-shaping options out there. Microblading, Powder brows, Ombré Brows, and combo brows all offer solutions for those looking to manage, define, or change the shape of their eyebrows. But how do you know which procedure is right for you?

Lets find out



Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure that uses a small handheld tool, made up of needles, to deposit pigment into the top layers of the skin. The needles, which are inserted at a shallow depth, make very fine, hair-like incisions in the skin. As a result, the pigment is deposited in a very natural-looking way that mimics the look of hair. It’s an ideal treatment for those who want to define and darken the shape of their eyebrows while still looking natural. This method is best suited for dry-normal skin types on clients under the age of 35. This procedure typically lasts 12-18 months before needing a color refresh.

Powder Brows

Powder brows, on the other hand, involve the use of a small single needle in a pen-style tattoo machine. Using this device we implant almost microscopic pixel like pigment into the skin. This method creates a soft powder effect that subtly defines, strengthens, and enhances brows. It’s perfect for those who want to enhance the shape of their eyebrows without going too bold, but like a more filled in look. This method is suitable for all skin types and ages. This procedure can last 2+ years before needing a color refresh.

Ombre Brows

Then there’s ombré brows. This is a semi-permanent technique that creates an ombré-like gradient of color for the brows. In the ombré look, the tail end of the brow is shaded darker than the beginning of the arch. This creates a soft and subtle definition that works well for those who want to keep their brows natural-looking. This procedure is also suitable for everyone, and lasts 2+ years before needing a color refresh.

Combination Brows

Finally, Combination brows involve a combination of Microblading and Machine brows (Ombré or Powder) to give a structured full look. This technique is typically best for normal, dry, or combination skin under the age of 35. This technique typically lasts 18-24 months before needing a color refresh.

So, How does this all work?

Each and every option has a similar process. first, we will talk about your skin care, brow goals, lifestyle, and skin type. We will then decide which technique is best for you. After we come to a conclusion, we will then cleanse your eyebrow area and take some before photos. After that, we will begin the brow mapping procedure, which includes using your facial structure to define your perfect brow shape. We will then take a look at the shape together and tweak things where needed. The initial brow drawing will appear larger and darker than they will turn out, no need to worry. Once you approve the brow shape, if you are receiving any microblading, you will be topically numbed, using a 5% lidocaine cream for about 20 minutes. If we are only doing machine style brows, we can begin the process directly after shape approval due to be comfortable nature of the tiny needles used. The process for implanting pigment using either service takes about two hours. No need to worry about the pain, during the procedure a secondary numbing gel will be applied occasionally to keep you comfortable. Once the process is over, we will then sit you up and check symmetry once again. If any adjustments need to be made, we will make them. Once your brows are absolutely perfect you will get to see the reveal. Any eyebrow procedure is a two-part system consisting of your initial appointment, which we just described, then a follow up procedure that is included in your price 6 to 8 weeks later. During the healing process, it is typical to lose some pigment due to the light handed techniques used. This is not of need of any concern, at your perfecting session, we can implant more pigment, adjust color, and shape as needed. After your procedure, your Brows may be sore, red, and unevenly swollen. On day 2 - 3 after your appointment, your brows might appear darker than when we first did them. This is normal. With either technique the brows may scab and peel. This typically does not last any longer than 7 to 10 days. After the peeling process, the pigment might appear much much lighter than expected, some have reported that it looks as if there is no pigment left. This is due to the new skin over top of the pigment creating a veil, muting the appearance of the coloration. Rest assured that the pigment will reappear before your touchup.

As you can see, there are a few different options available when it comes to enhancing your brows. Microblading is ideal for those who want to define and darken the shape of their eyebrows; Powder brows are perfect for those who want to enhance their brows without going too bold; and Ombré brows offer a soft and subtle definition that still looks natural.

Brianna was highly recommended by a pro at Beauty parade. She gave me your card. I've left messages for Brianna. I want tattooed eyebrows very much. It's been five years. I would love to please make an appointment.
