Many people desire fuller, more defined brows, and fortunately, treatments like microblading and ombre brows are effective options to achieve those goals. However, when looking to enhance your eyebrows, it can be tough to decide which treatment is right for you. Luckily, you don’t necessarily need to make that choice. Combo brows are an eyebrow enhancement technique that combines microblading with the advanced microshading of ombre brows, allowing you to enjoy the best of both worlds.

What Are Combo Brows?

Combo brows are simply a combination of two popular eyebrow enhancement treatments: microblading and ombre brows. This hybrid treatment allows patients to achieve exceptionally full and well-defined eyebrows with long-lasting results.

How Do Combo Brows Work?

The process for combo brows is pretty simple. First, the eyebrow specialist applies the microblading technique, making tiny incisions along the eyebrows and implanting pigment in delicate strokes. They then apply the special shading technique of ombre brows to give the eyebrows more depth and definition. By combining microblading and ombre brows techniques, combo brows allow patients to achieve exceptionally full eyebrows.

Benefits of Combo Brows

For individuals looking to achieve full, luscious eyebrows, combo brows can offer various benefits, including:

  • Fuller, thicker, more symmetrical eyebrows
  • Enhanced eyebrow definition and depth
  • More complete results than what’s possible with only one brow enhancement technique
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Fully customizable treatment
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Improved facial harmony

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

If you’re interested in trying combo brows for yourself, the first step will be a consultation with our eyebrow specialist. They will examine your eyebrows, talk with you about your unique aesthetic goals, and work with you to create a custom-tailored treatment plan. The consultation may also involve measuring your eyebrows and selecting the ideal shade for the procedure.

Your combo brows treatment will be a quick outpatient procedure performed right at our clinic. First, your provider will map out your new brows using a pen or pencil. They will then apply a numbing cream to your skin in the treatment area to prevent any pain during the procedure. Next, a special tool will be used to make tiny incisions along your brows, which will in turn be used to carefully implant pigment and complete the microblading part of the treatment. Finally, the ombre brows device will be used to put the finishing touches on your new eyebrows, enhancing their depth and definition. In total, the procedure should take around two to three hours to complete.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

You should be able to return to your normal routine immediately after getting combo brows, but you should wait at least a week before engaging in strenuous exercise. You will also be given detailed aftercare instructions to ensure that your new brows heal properly and look wonderful in the long run. For example, you’ll need to keep the treatment area dry, refrain from wearing makeup, and avoid direct sunlight for several days.

Am I a Candidate for Combo Brows?

Adults who are unsatisfied with the fullness of their eyebrows could be good candidates for combo brows. 

To be an ideal candidate, you should:

  • Be in generally good health
  • Have the desire for thicker, fuller eyebrows
  • Have the desire to restore your brows after hair loss
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Not be currently pregnant or nursing
  • Not be taking any blood-thinning medications

How Long Will It Take To See Results From Combo Brows?

Overall, it will take approximately four to six weeks for your combo brows to heal completely, at which point the final appearance of your new eyebrows will be visible. You will likely experience some scabbing and flaking in the area a few days after the treatment, but that’s entirely normal. You may also require a follow-up session within a few months of the procedure to receive any necessary touch-ups. On average, combo brows last for around two to four years before they start to fade.
