What is the difference between Ombre Powder Brows and Microblading?

Ombre Powder Brows uses one single needle to implant pigment into the upper layer of the dermis. Artists usually use a rotary machine that repeatedly moves the needle into the skin while swinging the machine in a pendulum movement at a minimal pressure. The most common question is, is the procedure painful? This really depends on the artists’ skill and clients’ skin type. 99% of the procedures that I have performed have seen zero pain experience with a slight discomfort akin to an ant’s bite. Microblading uses a row of needles that looks like a tiny blade and the pigment is implanted by slicing into the skin. For longer lasting results, this procedure is most suitable for dry skin and normal skin clients. On oily skin, microblading tends to fade faster and the lines would blur out. Microblading also requires more upkeep to make sure the hairstrokes are visible and annual touch ups are most likely required. Clients who love a very natural look or have very bushy brows with some sparse spots would suit microblading more. Ombre Powder Brows are low maintenance and fade out evenly (if done by a skilled artist) so clients can go without touch ups for years to come. Compared to microblading, Ombre Powder Brows does not leave skin with any scarring or deep lacerations that would last a lifetime. As a brow artist, I would recommend Ombre Powder Brows or its other variations like
Gradient Brows or Natural Brows for all my clients. They can vary from ‘makeup look’ effect to a very natural powder like effect that doesn’t stand out too much on the face. Do consult with your brow artist before deciding on which type of procedures to go for. Remember that your brows are the frame to your face and with the right shape, your brows can lift your face and even make you look more youthful.
