When it comes to permanent and semi-permanent makeup, you’ve probably heard of powder brows. This semi-permanent makeup technique is used to create fuller, more beautiful eyebrows. That’s why unDONE Salon would like to provide you with the following reasons powder brows are a popular semi-permanent makeup trend.
What Are Powder Brows?
Powder brows are a semi-permanent makeup technique that creates a soft shaded pencil brow look. First developed in Asia, powder brows have grown in popularity throughout the U.S as the method has been improved and perfected. Why? It creates wonderful definition and adds depth to your eyebrows without the need to apply makeup every day. It is particularly good for those with oily to combination skin or anyone tired of filling in their eyebrows regularly with makeup.
Powder Brows Vs. Microblading
The biggest difference between powder brows and microblading is how pigment is deposited into the skin. Microblading is done by using a small sharp tool that applies small cuts into the skin that are repeated into the same spots. On the other hand, powder brows are applied using a handheld wand that disperses extremely fine pigment into and across your skin using an airbrush-shading technique.
Do Powder Brows Hurt?
Everyone’s pain threshold is different. However, powder brows are much less invasive than microblading because there’s minimal pain or bleeding during the procedure. In fact, most of our clients at unDONE report that the procedure feels more like an electric toothbrush being pressed against their skin or rapid tweezing.
How Long Powder Brows Last
Powder brows can last anywhere from 2-5 years, depending on a person’s skin type and individual lifestyle. After a professional touch-up 4-6 weeks after your initial treatment, you will only need to have your eyebrows touched up once a year. Microblading, however, often requires more frequent touch-ups, resulting in long-term wear and tear to the skin, which can cause permanent scarring. That’s why it’s important to choose the less invasive method of powder brows to save your skin’s integrity.
