Powder Brows vs. Microblading

The most asked question is "What is the difference between Powder Brows and Microblading?".

If you look back in the day more people chose Microblading. Styles and trends change, evolving new techniques and pigments. In this article I will let you know why Microshading (Powder Brows) is better than Microblading.



#1 - Less Invasive

Powder Brows technique is way less invasive than Microblading. Brows are achieved with a machine that creates fine pixels of pigment that go into the epidermis of your skin, unlike Microblading that uses hand-tool and actually makes cuts into your skin to mimic hairstrokes. Over time while getting touch ups it could create trauma and scarring to the skin.

#2 - Lasts Longer

Permanent Makeup lasts 2-3 years until touch up is needed. Over time Microblading can turn out to be blotchy, spotty and hairstrokes blur. Choosing to do Powder Brows can be beneficial to your skin and less touch ups.

#3 - Looks More Natural

Powder Brows gives a Powder effect, that gives more of a filled in look. When healed a soft result similar to shaded brow pencil can be seen. Although, keep in mind the first week eyebrows are at their darkest and fade about 30%-40%.

#4 - Great for All Skin Types

Microshading is suitable for all skin types, unlike Microblading. If you have oily sk

in you are not a candidate for microblading.

#5 - Less Painful

In Permanent Makeup numbing is used to give you the most comfortable experience. While Powder Brows can cause little to no pain, Microblading is more invasive and can cause some pain and bleeding.
