Why Powder Brows Are Better Than Microblading

Permanent makeup has become very popular these days due to the ease it gives women of not having to draw or fill in their eyebrows every day. This is especially true during the COVID-19 pandemic when our eyes and brows are often the only thing people see due to wearing masks.

While microblading has been trending all over the internet and social media, there’s a new, less invasive procedure available to create a natural, semi-permanent look – powder brows. But what makes powder brows better than microblading? At unDONE Salon, we get asked this question a lot. That’s why we’d like to provide you with the following benefits of powder brows and what sets this technique apart from microblading.

Less Invasive

Powder brows are applied to the skin using a small handheld wand that disperses extremely fine pigment into and across your skin using an airbrush-shading technique. Microblading, on the other hand, uses a different type of handheld tool that creates small cuts into the skin with a sharp blade. This technique’s repeated strokes are much more invasive because they can quickly cause trauma to the skin as strokes are often repeated into the same spots.

Less Pain

Powder brows are less painful due to the technique applied, which results in less trauma to the skin vs. microblading. Because microblading involves cutting into the skin, there is also more bleeding involved. With powder brows, there is 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.

Longer Lasting

How long microblading or powder brows last depend on your skin type and individual lifestyle. However, most powder brow treatments using high-quality pigments typically last 1-2 years. 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.

Good For All Skin Types

No matter your skin type, powder brows are a wonderful option compared to microblading, which isn’t suitable for those with oily skin. Why? People with oily skin often require more microblading touch-ups, resulting in more trauma to the skin.

Natural Looking

While powder brows provide you with a more “filled-in” look immediately after treatment, the results after the healing process appear as a softly shaded brow pencil. In fact, powder brows will fade up to 30%, leaving you with a soft, natural look and shape that our clients love.

Reasons To Love Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup provides women in the Treasure Valley with a softer, more natural look than regular makeup. The best part? It eliminates the everyday hassle of applying eyeliner or drawing on your eyebrows and filling them in. Even more, you’ll never have to worry about smearing your makeup if you cry, rub your eyes, or go swimming.

Permanent makeup is also great for those who can’t wear regular makeup due to cosmetic sensitivity and itchy, watery eyes. Additionally, it’s great for those with poor vision or an unsteady hand, which makes the application of regular makeup difficult.

That’s why unDONE Salon would like to talk about permanent makeup in today’s blog post and provide you with the following reasons to love it.

Powder Brows

Not only do your eyebrows frame your face, but they also make your appearance distinct. While there are plenty of people out there that are born with a beautiful set of symmetrical brows, many of us struggle with sparse, uneven brows due to years of fluctuating beauty trends resulting in overplucking and overwaxing. This, in turn, creates the everyday hassle of drawing on and filling in our eyebrows. Not only is it time-consuming and frustrating, you have to worry about fading or rubbing off. Who wants to deal with that? With semi-permanent powder brows, you’ll never have to worry about doing your eyebrows again. Not only does it eliminate the daily struggle, but you also won’t have to worry about them coming off while exercising or swimming. Life-changing!

Eyebrows make a huge difference in the way you look and feel. At unDONE, our powder brow treatments are one of the favorite services we provide due to the reactions we get from our clients. It makes us feel so good to see the look of happiness when you look in the mirror and see the results after your procedure. It’s incredibly rewarding and heartwarming to be able to help others and is part of the reason we love what we do!

Permanent Eyeliner

Eyeliner opens your eyes, making them pop while boosting your self-confidence in the process. Aside from having to apply eyeliner every day, imagine it never smudging and smearing. Even more, washing and wiping it off every night can be especially damaging to the sensitive skin around your eyes, causing premature wrinkles in the process. Saying goodbye to raccoon eyes is one of our favorite reasons we do this procedure for our clients!

Furthermore, applying eyeliner requires a steady hand and a close attention to detail. If you can’t hold your eyeliner still enough to outline your eye, you won’t have to worry about this problem ever again with permanent eyeliner!

Keep in mind that permanent eyeliner isn’t meant to be dramatic. Instead, this procedure is intended to enhance the natural beauty of your eyes and provide you with an everyday look for work, play, and leisure that can be expanded on with regular eyeliner and additional makeup like eyeshadow and mascara.
