WHAT IS POWDER BROWS ?
Powder brows (also known as ombre brows, shaded brows or microshading) is a "semi-permanent" make-up cosmetic tattooing procedure that is designed to get lighter over time. We use a tattoo machine to insert the pigment into the top layers of the skin using the pointillism technique. As a result this gives a more powdery eyebrow effect that resembles the look of makeup application, or a fresh eyebrow tint.
Saves money long term
Safe for sensitive skin
Gives a soft shaded brow pencil look
Long lasting 1–3 years before refresher needed
Heals beautifully on all skin types and skin tones

There are many ways to shade the brow.
Pixelation Powder brows: the effect of creating pixelation in the skin of little soft dots, creating a more sharper soild effect on the bottom of brow fadeded out with the pointillism technique on the top & head of the brow.

WHO IS POWDER BROWS FOR ?
Powder brows are good for all healthy skin tyes. There are different elements to consider such as skin condition & health for which technique we will use. If you’ve had Alopecia or Chemoptherapy you may need a full shaping with the powder technique.
Normal to Dry Skin: You’re an ideal candidate for microblading
or powder. in most cases the hair strokes should heal crisp and easily.
Oily Skin: You’re an ideal candidate but you can expect the
hair strokes to heal with a slight blur with microblading. Powder
or Combination brows will be a better option for your skin type.
Extremely oily skin/large pores: You’re not the best candidate
for microblading you can expect the hair strokes to heal with
a diffused look. Your end result will look more powdered.
A Full Powdered brow is recommended.
THE POWDER TECHNIQUE IS GREAT FOR ALL SKIN TYPES OPPOSED TO MICROBLADING
At Bold, we have very strict guidelines that we follow to decide who is a good candidate for microblading and who should avoid microblading!
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE TOUCH UP ?
Do not expect FINAL results after the first session as this is a 2 STEP PROCESS.
The first session is used to build shape and gain symmetry. The touch up is for “perfecting” the brows/adding density and making any changes necessary. The touch up session is done 6-8 weeks later after the first treatment. You must understand that even after the touch up, some still might want to fill in a few spots with makeup, as everyone skin takes the pigment differently, we aim for ‘PERFECTION’ but even this doesn't exist.
Overall you will have much better brows that compliment your face
A touch-up is a must and is not optional
Previously tattooed brows, certain skin types / health state/ bad aftercare etc.. may require ONE or a FEW additional touch ups. There is no guarantee.
WHAT HAPPENS ON PROCEDURE DAY ?
The appointment is booked for 3 hours
What to expect:
We will consult on how everything works
Your eyebrow area will then be cleaned
We will draw on the desired brow shape.
(MAX 30mins please come with a open mind)
We will adjust the shape to your liking
Once we are satisfied with the shape, pre numbing is applyed
over the brows for 10minutes & we will discuss color pigments.
After complete approval from you we will begin tattooing,
once the skin is open more topical anesthetics will
be applied to maintain less discomfort.
Once completed, we will then discuss aftercare.
Please read the POLICY as DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
HOW IS THE HEALING PROCESS ?
Healing time varies per person & can be prolonged if your immune system is compromised/overly stressed/poor diet/health*
It takes 2 weeks for surface skin to heal & 6-8 weeks for full skin healing.
You may experience the following symptoms for the first few days:
- Minor swelling and redness, mild tenderness or bruising.
- Itchiness in and around the treatment area can last up to 2 months.
DAY 1 Immediately after
brows will appear darker, reddish color,
thicker and more defined looking unnatural.
DAY 2 -4 Brows WILL get darker as light scabs form.
DAY 4-14 You will experience dry flaking skin (due to scabbing).
When done flaking it will appear muted, greyish and look shiny.
Once fully healed the colour will fade 30-50%, as it starts to soften and look less defined. As the skin sheds, the tattoo may seem to disappear as the colour has not fully settled or surfaced yet. It will take about a month+ for the brows to heal to its true colour.
Do not be concerned once healed if your brows do not look perfectly full and are patchy, this is normal and will be added at the touch-up sessions.
BE PATIENT, your brows will go through several phases during the healing cycle.
HOW LONG DOSE IT LAST ?
Powder brows is considered "semi-permanent" because it will get lighter over time and will need upkeep refresher appointments every 1-2 years. On average powder brows last longer in the skin compared to microblading because of the way it is implanted in the skin.
A yearly refresher is needed to retain the shape and saturation of the pigment.
There are many factors that affect the treated area that we have NO CONTROL OVER. Results will vary depending on: skin type, lifestyle, long-term care, aftercare, health, sun exposure, your metabolism, the pigment color used (lighter colors fade faster).
Please note that final results cannot be guaranteed as each unique skin type will hold pigments differently and break down at different rates.
DOSE IT HURT ?
A certain amount of discomfort is associated with this procedure.
Pre numbing is applied with the powder brow technique for 10mintues . Then once the skin is open I will use A secondary numbing, which will then lessen discomfort even more. Clients have related the procedure with eyebrow threading, plucking multiple hairs at once, or a light scratching of the skin.
Everyone’s pain tolerance is different: There can be discomfort even after the topical anesthetic has been used. Anesthetics work better on some people than on others. You may experience hypersensitivity and more discomfort around or during your menstrual cycle..
WHAT WILL MY TATTOO LOOK LIKE IF I STOP TREATMENTS ?
This Technique is considered “semi permanent” because the pigment color breaks down at different rates leaving behind a slight color change. ( This is why refresher appointments are needed to keep the color true. ) This means that the pigment might not be completely gone if you never refresh the treatment again.
Darker pigments could have a slight tint of brown/grey.
Lighter pigments could have a slight tint of reddish/brown, left behind in the skin.
Everyone varies, for some it can completely disappear while others stay more.
This is normal with permanent makeup & nothing to fear.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COSMETIC TATTOOING AND STANDARD BODY TATTOOING ?
Cosmetic tattooing is softer and more subtle, it is meant to be a natural-lookingenhancement.
DO I NEED A CONSULTATION ?
Consultations are not mandatory as they are done on the day of the appointment as I created this page for you to understand the process.
