SEMI PERMANENT OMBRE POWDER BROWS
If you’re someone who prefers a fuller brow with a soft and natural look, you may want to consider the semi-permanent powdered ombre technique. The technique is done by using our top of the line pigmentation machine, comprising of a specialized and sterile needle that inserts pigmentation beneath the upper layers of the skin. This cosmetic eyebrow technique will mimic the appearance of conventional brow makeup whether it be a pencil or shadow. Unlike the harsh block tattooing of the past, the powdered ombre brows looks completely natural and can be individually customized. This technique works for everyone, whether you have no hair and have been wanting a beautiful fully shaped brow or have a ton of hair and are wanting a desired shape and symmetry. At Glam Body Sugaring Boutique, we pride ourselves in only using the best & top of the line pigments and products to give our clients the best brow results because when it comes to your face...you only wanna go with quality! Overall, this procedure will enhance your beauty and give your eyebrows the shape you’ve always desired!
This technique is safer than traditional manual Microblading. Less invasive, heals more predictably, and is for all skin types and tones. Microblading cannot be done more than 3 times in ones lifetime, so semi permanent ombre brows are a longer lasting investment into your skins health and every day beauty regimen.
WHAT IS SEMI-PERMANENT MAKEUP?
A form of micropigmentation (permanent makeup). Using a specialized and sterile needle, specially formulated pigment is deposited under the dermal layer of the skin. It is a soft layering technique that gives ultimate control to the artist to create the most natural looking ombre powdered brow.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEMI-PERMANENT AND PERMANENT MAKEUP?
- Pigment is deposited deeper into the dermal layer of the skin using a minimum of 3 prong needle. It is a more aggressive application resulting in more pain and potential scarring.
- Lasts between 5-10 years. The results are harsh and indelibly irreversible.
- Due to the body's chemistry (acidity) of the of the skin there is a high chance of pigment to gradually change colors.
SEMI-PERMANENT OMBRE BROWS:
- Pigments are deposited very superficially into the skin using only a single prong needle.
- We use iron oxide free pigments (harsh metal elements that travel in the blood stream)
- Last between 1-3 years. Touch ups are necessary to maintain color vibrancy and shape definition because the sun is the skins enemy.
- Pigment is deposited between the epidermis and the dermis therefore the pigment will fade as your skin naturally exfoliates.
- Discomfort level is less for ombre brows compared to permanent makeup & the microblading technique
- Color will lighten and fade out before it has a chance to change to a primal color (blue or red).
- Healed results are more predictable than microblading.
1. CUSTOMIZING YOUR BROWS.
All the Brow Artists at Glam Body Sugaring Boutique specialize in proper eyebrow shaping. Before starting the semi-permanent makeup procedure, your Brow Artist will consult with you on your desired eyebrow shape and color. From there they will use proper brow shaping tools to get a shape that you love before applying any pigment into the skin. Keep in mind not everyone is walking out with the same eyebrows. We tailor and customize to each individuals face shape.
2. IT SHOULDN’T HURT.
The procedure is “near painless,” and those who’ve had the semi-permanent brows done in the past agree. You’ll feel some pressure and a slight scratching/plucking sensation from the tiny needles. Your Brow Artist will help minimize any discomfort by applying an advanced and top of the line topical numbing solution during the tattooing session.
3. IT WILL FADE.
This is a good and bad thing, depending on how you see it. You should expect to lose 40-60% of the initial color during the healing process. In about six days it may appear too light. After about 10 days, the color will show more and will appear softer when completely healed.
4. YOU HAVE TO CARE FOR YOUR “BROWS”.
You cannot get your eyebrows wet because the cosmetic tattoo should be kept dry until the eyebrows are fully healed. You will want to avoid heavy workouts, swimming, saunas, facials, and excessive sun exposure for 1-2 weeks or until the brows are fully healed. Do not scrub or wash the eyebrows with soap during the healing process and stay away from applying any makeup/ oily products onto the eyebrows. Please take extra care of your brows when showering to ensure that they are kept as dry as possible as this will help the pigment settle into the skin for longer lasting results and ink retention.
5. IT’S AN INVESTMENT.
You may think you can’t buy enough brow pencils in two years to make up for the cost, but you’ll be enhancing your beauty and saving time! You can get away with wearing less eye makeup because your eyebrows will have the desired shape you’ve always wanted.
6. IT’S A SAFER BET THAN PERMANENT.
If the tattoo’s so great, why not get it done permanently? Well permanent eyebrow tattoo may become discolored overtime giving your eyebrows a color that may fall into a blueish to greenish shade. Also, with semi-permanent, you’re not out of luck if your brow shape is totally “out” because reshaping is always possible.
