Powdered Brows is done with a digital cosmetic machine and involve, thousands of tiny dots of pigment, implanted into the skin. Together these dots build up color and define the eyebrow shape. It mimics the look of filled in brow with powdered makeup or a pencil hence the name powdered brows. This technique can be very natural or very bold and defined.
This technique is more suitable for all skin types. Especially, if you have sensitive, thin, or oily skin, the powdered brow will deliver the best results. This technique is the gentlest on the skin and therefore less discomfort. If that is a major concern for you, you may be interested in the powdered brow.
Powdering can last 1 to 3 years depending on skin type, lifestyle, and age. Majority of clients will go about a year and a half to two years before coming back for their refreshment. While each client’s longevity is different typically clients can expect the powdered brow to last about 6 months longer than the microblading technique.
Many factors will contribute to your fading, the major factors being skin type, products used, sweat, and sun. Drier skin does hold pigment better than oily skin. If you tend to use facial products that contain acids (Rentin-A, age defying products, or acne products) on a regular basis, your pigment may not last as long as someone not using those products. The same is true for clients that receive laser treatments or chemical peels on a regular basis. Fading is also dependent on how much you sweat and your time in the sun. If you happen to be avid workout person, or someone who sweats a lot daily, please note that this will eat up your pigment quicker. As well as, sun exposure can break our pigment molecules in which the body can then metabolize the pigment faster. SPF is always advised if you plan to be in the sun.
No, we are using pigments and cosmetic tattoo machine. We only call it powdered brow because it mimics the look of when you fill in your brows with makeup.

Permanent makeup is not ideal for clients who are in the sun or tan regularly. Not only does it fade the pigment faster, but the sun also fades certain colors in the pigment first. Meaning you can get an off color quicker (turning ashy and cool toned).

No heavy sweating for a minimum of 4 days. Sweat is salt, we use salt to remove permanent makeup. Please avoid sweating during the after care phase to ensure the best result. If you are an avid workout person (4+ times a week) know that your permanent makeup may fade out at a faster rate and earlier refreshments may be needed.
No swimming for 10 days after your treatment.
Avoid the use of any facial products (e.g. anti-aging creams or acne products) that would contain any acids and retinoids until after you have completely healed, 4-6 weeks from you touch up appointment.
Avoid any facials, chemical peels, laser treatments, or resurfacing treatments until after you have completely healed 4-6 weeks from your touch up appointment. The more aggressive the treatment you are desiring, whether it be an advanced chemical peel or resurfacing treatment, the more time that is needed after the permanent makeup treatment.
No tanning for 4-6 weeks after the treatment. Tanning during the healing process can negatively affect the retention and pigment color. You must wear a hat if you decide to be outdoors within 10 days from your appointment. Wearing an SPF over the brows after 10 days is advised if you will be outdoors.
As long as you follow our after care instructions which will be given to you at the time of the appointment. You can rest assured that your brows will not look gross or scab at any time.
Eyebrows can appear darker to some. However, if you are used to seeing your brows filled in, this may not be dark for you. Instead, you may be getting used to the slight shape change if it was much different than what you were used to seeing.
Clients with sensitive skin my feel as though their pigment is looking to ‘warm’ or ‘red’ for them. This is due to the skin itself healing and turning red. These days are considered the dark days. You can expect the brows to look slightly bolder. In this case, we recommend wearing a bit of other makeup to balance the brows if you feel like they are darker. (Don’t worry they won’t look black; they will just be a bit darker than what you are used to seeing)
The brows will begin to flake. Dry skin clients usually don’t notice flaking. Oily skin clients will experience about a day or so of brow dandruff.
These days the pigment can ghost, meaning the top layers of the skin are healing and not allowing for the color to show through. The brows can look extremely light during this phase. After day 10 you may apply a little makeup if needed until the color returns.
As the skin heals the color will start to show through again. Your final color may take a full skin cycle of 6 weeks before arriving at your final color.
