Improving Your Ombre Powder Brows

What are Ombre Powder Brows?

Ombre powder brows, commonly known as microshading, are a cosmetic permanent eyebrow styling technique designed to create eyebrows with soft powder effect, very similar to powder makeup. Powder effect is done with a shading technique using a permanent makeup device.

How are Ombre Powder Brows Done?

Our trained artist use a small needle to place pigment into the skin with a quick hand motion, resulting in a pixelated effect of powder makeup. In order to add density, the artists can layer the pixels repetitively, which will appear as though the brow was filled in with a pencil or brow pomade. The art in shading is to layer the pixels perfectly without appearing denser and darker then your natural eyebrow hair.  Our master artists are able to do just that so when you walk out of the Thrive Aesthetics, your brows appear the most natural.


Who Can Get Microshaded Eyebrows?

For clients who draw on their eyebrows everyday, this can be an amazing, beautiful solution. It is also a great alternative for clients that are not good candidates for Microblading or combo brows because their skin is too oily as shading is suitable for any skin type!

How Many Sessions Are Needed for Ombre Powder Brows?

Our customers often have great healed results after one session with shading. We do offer a complementary touch up after 6-8 weeks to ensure your brows are perfect and the color is even throughout the whole eyebrow or if for any reason you want to add more density to them.

How do I Care For and Maintain my New Powder Brows?

We recommend biannual touch up, after the initial complementary touchup, to maintain the crispness and freshness of the color. Natural fading occurs from external factors such as exposure to the sun as well. Internal factors such as the gradual break down of pigments as your body metabolizes it out of your system. Everyone can experience the fading process differently and it really comes down to skin type and lifestyle.

It doesn’t wash off or smudge, and it lasts up to 6 years.

How to Prepare for an Ombre Powder Brow Treatment

Preparation for a microblading procedure involves:

  • Avoiding caffeine beverages or alcohol on the day of the procedure.
  • Tinting brows before the appointment.
  • No waxing or plucking eyebrows within 2 days beforehand.
  • No chemical peels and other intense facial treatments for at least 2 to 3 weeks before the procedure.
  • Wash and style hair before the procedure, as the brows must not come into contact with water for at least 7 days.
  • Discontinuing vitamin A (Retinol) and Botox treatments for at least 1 month beforehand.
  • Stopping taking fish oil or any other natural blood thinners, such as vitamin E, at least 1 week before the procedure.
  • Avoiding aspirin or ibuprofen for pain relief (as these types of medications are blood thinners).
  • Not working out the day of the appointment.


What Does a Microshading Procedure Involve?

On the day of the procedure, it is important to sit down with the esthetician and voice any questions or concerns. The esthetician should also explain the procedure and the options, including style and color, and make recommendations.

Before the procedure starts, the esthetician will probably use a topical numbing ointment on the brow area. This helps reduce discomfort during the microblading procedure — although, according to the SPCP, there are various options for topical anesthesia available.

Once the client is comfortable, the technician begins the procedure. The process is very detailed and can take up to 2 hours. It is also important for the esthetician to take their time because the result will last for a few years.

The client may feel a scraping-type of sensation in the brow area, but the process is usually only minimally painful and very tolerable.

How To Take Care of Ombre Powder Brows

Washing the eyebrows gently with antibacterial soap, while avoiding exposing them to too much water for too long, may help to promote recovery.

After the microblading procedure, and for at least 1 week afterward, a person’s eyebrows might appear darker. They may also feel sharper due to scabbing and healing. It is also normal to experience some redness and mild swelling.

The esthetician will give their clients aftercare instructions, which might include:

  • Gently washing over the eyebrows with a fingertip, using antibacterial soap and water for about 10 seconds, rinsing, and then patting dry.
  • Using a minimal amount of moisturizing ointment.
  • Keeping the brows away from water for 7–10 days, which includes not taking long showers or swimming.
  • Avoiding putting makeup on the brow area while it is actively healing to keep the area as clean as possible.
  • Not picking at the scabs.
  • Avoiding direct sunlight or tanning for at least 4 weeks after the procedure.
  • Not using facial scrubs or peels for at least 4 weeks after the procedure.
  • Not sleeping on the face for at least 10 days after the procedure
