Unfortunately, only the lucky few are born with naturally luscious brows, and some people aren’t good candidates for standard eyebrow tattooing or treatments like microblading. If you’re interested in an alternative way to achieve the beautiful eyebrows you desire, you may want to try ombre brows.

What Are Ombre Brows?

Ombre brows, also known as powdered brows, are a special styling technique designed to create the appearance of full, well-defined eyebrows. The semi-permanent treatment provides the brows with excellent depth and definition. Ombre brows are a very popular choice for individuals with oily skin who are not ideal candidates for microblading.

How Do Ombre Brows Work?

The ombre brows method is a semi-permanent technique that involves inserting pigment into the skin to create the appearance of thicker and fuller eyebrows. Ombre brows technology utilizes a special method of shading to achieve a gradient effect, which results in natural-looking brows. For people with oily skin, the ombre brows method typically provides more visible eyebrow enhancements than microblading.

Benefits of Ombre Brows

Ombre brows can offer a variety of benefits to individuals who would like fuller brows, including:

  • Creates the appearance of thicker, more luscious eyebrows
  • Suitable for oily skin and any skin type
  • Improved eyebrow depth and definition
  • Long-lasting results
  • Slightly less invasive than microblading
  • Improved overall facial harmony
  • Makes your eyes and upper face look more youthful
  • Increased self-confidence

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

Before your ombre brows procedure, the first step will be to have a consultation with our eyebrow specialist. They will evaluate your current eyebrows, skin type, and aesthetic goals to choose the ideal shade of powdered brows and create a personalized treatment plan.

Before your ombre brows procedure begins, your provider will use a pencil or pen to map out your new brows. They will then apply a topical anesthetic to your skin to prevent any pain during the procedure. Finally, they will use a special device to carefully apply the pigment to your skin, shaping your ombre brows with complete precision. In total, you can expect the procedure to take around two to three hours.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

To ensure that you achieve optimal results, aftercare is important for your ombre brows. Before you leave our facility, your provider will give you thorough instructions to ensure that you heal properly. For example, you’ll need to temporarily avoid direct sun exposure and refrain from using makeup.

Most patients can return to work immediately after getting ombre brows, but we recommend waiting at least one week before engaging in strenuous exercise.

Am I a Candidate for Ombre Brows?

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

To be an ideal candidate, you should:

  • Be in generally good health
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Have the desire for thicker, fuller, more symmetrical eyebrows
  • Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Not be currently taking blood-thinning medication
  • Have the desire to restore your eyebrows after hair loss

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

After your ombre brows treatment, you will likely notice some flaking and scabbing of the skin in the treatment area. This is entirely normal and nothing to worry about. Typically, the effects of the treatment appear gradually, and you can usually see the complete results after around four to six weeks. For optimal results, it’s also important that you have a follow-up session for touch-ups within a few months of the procedure. On average, ombre brows last for approximately two to five years before they begin to fade.
