What Are Ombre' Brows?
Ombré Brows (Also knowns as Powder Brows/Shaded Brows/Dimensional shading) is a semi-permanent cosmetic tattoo procedure where through a digital device that embeds pigment under the skin. This technique creates a misty, powder filled brow resembling the look of makeup application, or a fresh eyebrow tint.
What Do The Final Results Look Like?
A gentle powdered look and the tails of the brow are darker, and as you move towards the front of the brow it gently fades.
Does Ombre' Brows Hurt?
Since numbing ointment is used throughout the procedure to minimize pain, the process is practically painless with just a possibility of slight discomfort.
How Long Does the Ombre' Procedure Take?
The entire procedure, including numbing, outlining the shape, pre-drawing the brows and fine tuning, takes up to 2.5 hours.
How Long Is The Healing Process?
It is normal to experience minimal swelling and tenderness following your procedure. It doesn’t take very long for it to disappear. Immediately following your treatment the pigment will appear darker than how it will appear once it has healed. After a few days, the surface color naturally exfoliates to leave a softer color. After about a week, the pigment may appear lighter than you want it to be. That is why a touch-up visit up to 8 weeks after your initial appointment is necessary in order to achieve that richness of color and density in the shape.

How Long Do Ombre' Brows Last?
Cosmetic tattooing is considered semi-permanent and will not wash off, however, it will fade over time and we recommend getting a touch up annually to keep them looking fresh. There is no guarantee in how long it lasts, as each individual’s skin will respond differently. The brow is semi-permanent, so it will begin to noticeably fade after 12-14 months, even though its only gradual fading.
Frequency of touch-ups depends on a number of factors including: The pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster), lifestyle (sun exposure), iron deficiency (your body absorbs iron-oxide as a supplement), and if any chemical peels come into contact with treated areas. Please note that final results cannot be guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates. We will re-evaluate how your skin has received the pigment at your touch-up appointment and make any changes necessary.
