The Great Brow Debate: Microblading vs. Ombre Powder Brows
Updated: Jan 9
Which semi-permanent brow treatment is best for you?
In the quest to get perfect brows, there have never been so many options available to the public. Where once there were only chalky eyebrow pencils or unrealistic looking tattoo brows, there are now beautiful semi-permanent brow treatment services such as microblading or ombre powder brows. But what is the big difference between the two, and which is right for you? Let’s review:
Microblading is an invasive process that involves manually created micro-incisions on the surface of the skin and then filling those cuts with pigment. The process gives the illusion of individual hair strands and can take up to three weeks to recover from.
Ombre Powder Brows
Similar to brow tattoo, Ombre Powder Brows makes several tiny, pigmented dots to the brows – however, unlike tattoo eyebrows, the pigment is only inserted in the epidermis layer and not deeper. This gives a deeper and fuller eyebrow appearance and recovery takes only one to three weeks.
In both cases, the area is numbed before application, however, there is a higher instance of blood in microblading. Microblading is more likely to cause scar tissue, delivers a blockier look, and tends to fade quickly over time. Microblading lasts for up to two years, while Ombre Powder Brows last for up to three. The overall cost breakdown also leans in favor of Ombre Powder Brows, both due to the lower price point and the longer lasting wear time.
