Ombre brows, also known as Powdered Brows, differs from traditional tattooing in that it is surface work—meaning, the application is done on the epidermis layer of the skin. The technique is described by its name, with results being powdery with a faded front and a crisp tail, resembling the look of makeup. It is 100% customizable and is great for anyone who wants a soft and natural look. This shadow technique is minimally invasive, lasts longer and can be buildable from light to dark. Great for most skin types.
How long does it last?
The results can last anywhere from 11 to 18 months, depending on different factors affecting the procedure. However, a touch up once a year is recommended to retain the shape and saturation of pigment
Does it hurt?
This procedure is relatively painless, however you might feel slight discomfort, numbing cream is used before the procedure same as doctors would use when performing Fillers or Botox.
How long does it take?
This procedure takes about 2hours. After you fill out paperwork, I will numb you, then I will draw a perfect shape, we will consult and take before and after photos.
Will I need touch-up?
Pigment retention depends on skin type, age, aftercare, sun exposure, use of certain skin products, and other factors. The pigment is semi-permanent and will fade over time. Additional Touch-Ups are likely needed within 6 months to 2 years.
