What Are Ombre Brows? 

Ombre Brows is a form of tattooing. The style ombre means soft in the front and dark in the back. You can get a thicker shape to give you a "make up" look or a really natural shape to achieve an everyday natural look. Your brows will be customized to fit your face. 

Are Ombre Brows and Micro blading The same?

Both techniques are a form of tattooing but no they are not the same. Ombre Brows are created with a Digital machine which creates a longer lasting brow VS. Micro blading is using a pen like tool to create small cuts mimicking small pieces of hair.  

Microblading does not heal well on oily skin types whereas Ombre Brows heals well on all skin type. 

How Long Does Ombre Brows last? 

Ombre Brows 3-5 years depending on client's skin type, health conditions and lifestyle.  To keep your shape and color radiant a touchup is needed every 1-3 years. 

Does this hurt? 

Topical anesthetic is applied for numbing during the procedure and every effort is made to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. 
Typically, many clients say that it is no more painful than tweezing or threading.
Having this service when on your menstrual cycle may increase discomfort.

  • Antibiotics: No antibiotic use for 30 days prior to appointment.Please Note: you will be more sensitive during your menstrual cycle.

After Care 

  • DO NOT rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss!
  • COMPLETELY avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks after your procedure. Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyperpigmentation and scarring.
  • Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and/or hot bath for 3 weeks.
  • Avoid sweating for a full 10 days. Any physical effort, gym, hot weather, any other activity that may cause sweating through or on the brows will expel pigment from the dermis producing poor results.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face/brows for the first 10 days.
  • Keep your bangs and hair pulled back from your face for the first 10 days.
  • NO makeup or skincare products to be used on the treated area for 10- 14 days.
  • NO facials, chemical treatments, laser treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
  • NO botox for 4 weeks. We recommend that it’s best to wait until after your touch up heals to get Botox, as an educated injector will take your new brows into consideration when choosing where to inject.
  • After 10 days, once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock to avoid uv rays (50 SPF or greater) when going out in the sun to stop the color from fading, color retention.
  • Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.
  • Avoid Retin-A, Chemical Peels and Microderms around the brow area once healed.
  • Maintain removal of unwanted eyebrow hair outside for your tattooed brow design by tweezing, threading, waxing or using razor for brows.
