Microblading and Ombre powder brows are both methods of permanent eyebrows. The finish is different from each other. If you are wondering about the difference between the two, you are not alone. This blog post will outline the differences and what to expect from each procedure.
Microblading versus Ombre: What Is the Difference?
Microblading is a method of tattooing the eyebrows. In microblading, a hand tool is used with a row of tiny needles to create tiny indents in the skin. Pigment is then deposited into the indents. The result is dark, precise lines that emulate the look of natural eyebrows. This is the most traditional method of permanent makeup.
Ombre brows are a newer form of permanent eyebrows, often known as Ombre brows or ombre powdered brows. It is a semi-cosmetic technique in which an artist manually inserts pigments into the top layers of the skin of the eyebrows by using cosmetic tattoo machine with shading technique.
What Are the Benefits?
Microblading and powder brows are both a form of permanent makeup. Both are meant to be a permanent solution for individuals who struggle with their eyebrows or have lost brow hair.
Powdery eyebrows (ombré), this technique gives a gradient effect starting lighter in front of the brows than gradual getting darker depth through to the tail of the brow.
Both microblading and powder brows can be done to match your natural hair (such as your own hair) with organic or inorganic pigment.
The look of powder brows is different from microblading. Because powder brows are placed on with a shading technique, the technique is just as precise as microblading. Powder brows will also fade over time but will usually last longer than microblading.
What to Expect
There is a healing process with both microblading and with powder brows. The process is different with each method of semi-permanent eyebrows. The healing process with microblading takes approximately 2-3 weeks. For powder brows, it takes approximately 1-2 weeks.
Microblading will take more time to heal and is not suitable to all skin types.
