What's the difference between Powder Brows and Microblading?
Powder brows is a cosmetic tattoo that's done by shading in the brows, thus giving the appearance of beautifully shaped brows. Microblading is a tattooing technique in which a small blade is used to implant pigment into the skin by creating scratches/cuts to give the illusion of "hair". Powder Brows are the most natural looking form of permanent makeup. Results are natural and as they age they get even more softer and natural. This service works for anyone whether you have full bushy brows or are completely bald.
Why do we prefer powder over microblading?
Powder brows do not cause trauma like Microblading does. The sad truth is that our skin cannot take more than 3 sessions of microblading. The cuts that are being done will cause overlapping scars and thicker tissue. This even makes it difficult to do any form of permanent makeup on the brows because the skin has been compromised. Powder brows is a form of needling which has been proven to boost collagen. So not only is it less traumatic, but it's also beneficial for the integrity of the skin.
Microblading may look like "hair" at first, but like any line that's done in the skin it eventually starts to blur out. Powder brows are the most natural looking form of cosmetic tattoo you'll ever come across. Just check out our gallery below to see for yourself.
How long do powder brows last?
Powder brows lasts an average time of 2-3 years in the skin without any touch ups. They may begin fading around 6 months to one year. It’s recommended to get touch ups to maintain the look and not lose the shape/form and color too soon. On average, clients come twice a year.
How do powder brows heal and look over time?
Healed results vary and can heal up to 70% lighter and shrink up to 30%. Varies per person, but the percentages mentioned are the average. The color overall gets lighter and softer. If not maintained, the pigment may appear like it's gone. It's recommended to do touch ups to maintain them.
How long does the procedure take?
Your first visit may take 2-2 and a half hours. The first visit is the foundation and overall design of your look which is why it takes some time.
How often should I do touch ups?
A lot of client's do a touch up a month and a half to 3 months after their initial. Since Powder Brows are a very soft technique, 100% retention is not guaranteed. You may need a sooner touch up to make some adjustments. Client's usually come every 6 months to maintain them after the two first appointments.
Is the touch up included in the initial price?
It is not included. However, touch ups are at a discounted price.
If I had my brows done somewhere else, would you be able to do a touch up?
I do not do touch ups on other artist's/technician's work. The area would have to be 90% faded. If it's not, then removal sessions would have to be done before. To know more about our tattoo removal process click on this link www.beautistrystudio.com/tattooremoval
Will it hurt?
Since pain is relative it's hard to decipher what your experience will feel like. I apply two forms of numbing to make the procedure tolerable. Majority of clients that do experience some discomfort mention that tweezing hurts more if you'd like to compare the pain to something familiar.
Do I get to see a preview of how my brows will look?
Yes! I like to see every case as a collaboration between the artist (me) and client (you). I do a makeup preview of the shape and color beforehand. Once you approve, then we will get started.
Why do healed results vary?
Healed results vary because of the following:
Skin Type - dry/oily/sun-damaged
Natural skin undertones
Alcohol intake and smoking
A compromised immune system
Post procedure care treatment
Use of skincare products
Activities causing sweating
For example: Someone with oily skin, that sweats a lot, and uses retinol will need to do more touch ups because they're prone to fading faster than a person with dry skin, that doesn't use strong skincare, and doesn't sweat a lot or exercise.
Who isn't a candidate?

How long does it take to heal?
There are two stages in the healing process. The first process: the skin peels and flakes. Based on the client's skin type it may last anywhere between 5 - 14 days. The second stage is when your natural cell turnover takes place in the next couple weeks. The pigment may appear light, translucent, and/or shiny during this time. As the skin heals, the color will bloom back to the surface. Final healed results are between 6 - 12 weeks.
How will they look the day of vs healed?
Day 1 - 4: Color may appear bold and red. This is normal and will go down.
Day 4 - 9: You will notice the skin healing itself and shedding. The areas that peel may appear lighter in color than the rest.
Day 7 - 14: All or majority of the skin may have healed over and appear very light.
Day 10-14: If all of the skin has peeled, you may fill your brows with a very light hand.
Day 21 - 35: You will notice the color regenerating and your brows looking nice and more filled in.
Month 1 1/2 - 3: The final color will appear. If the color didn't come 100% back, it's normal and if you’d like another session, the skin is ready to take it on.
