You’ve probably heard about Microblading, often known as “Powder Brows,” from your cool aunt or a coworker. Both are Permanent Makeup Procedures, as you are aware (PMU). But what exactly is the difference? And which method is most appropriate for you?
THE FIVE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MICROBLADING AND POWDERED BROWS WILL HELP YOU DECIDE WHICH SESSION TO BOOK!
- Mode of application.
- Your Heal Time.
- Your Skin Type.
- Your Desired Outcome.
- The Longevity of Your Results
A “MICROBLADE” IS USED TO IMPLANT COLOR INTO THE SKIN IN MICROBLADING.
During your brow appointment, the pigment is physically implanted into the skin, little by bit. Your artist creates your brow form by dipping the microblade into an organic vegan pigment and drawing your brow one stroke at a time!
Powder Brows delivers color to the skin using an ultra-fine tattoo needle and a Permanent Makeup (PMU) Device. Powder brows are also known as “Ombre Brows” or “Powder Brows.” Powder Brows provide the appearance of cosmetic powder, therefore the name “Powder Brows.”
MICROBLADING WILL TAKE LONGER TO HEAL THAN POWDER BROWS.
Microblading is more intrusive in general because the microblade penetrates deeper into the epidermis (top layers) of the skin. Micoblading recovery will take about seven days in the beginning.
The healing time for Powder Brow, on the other hand, is only five days. Because the pigment isn’t injected as deeply into the skin as Microblading, Powder Brows recover considerably faster.
MICROBLADING IS TYPICALLY BETTER THAN POWDER BROWS IF YOU HAVE DRY TO NORMAL SKIN.
Microblading’s realism is determined by the “hair strokes” applied and your skin’s capacity to heal crisply. Your treatment will leave “hair strokes” on oilier skin types. Please be aware that your strokes may seem more “feathered.”
If you have oily or acne-prone skin, your artist may recommend Powder Brows. Your “hair strokes” will mend adequately in your skin, but the sharpness of your strokes cannot be anticipated or guaranteed. However, as the PMU business evolves, new ink formulas are developed to provide better outcomes for oilier skin types.
THE DESIRED OUTCOME SHOULD DETERMINE IF MICROBLADING VS. POWDER BROWS IS THE BEST PMU PROCEDURE FOR YOU.
The Art of Microbading was the trigger for the brow makeover craze. Microblading produces the most realistic and natural-looking results as compared to powder brows. If you’re more of a “Naturalista” than a “Glamazon,” microblading is the way to go.
Powder Brows, on the other hand, are your best choice if you desire a more defined brow! Why? Powder Brows resemble a brow that has been meticulously filled in with “powder.” The idea of a Powder Brow is to make it appear as though you took an effort to fill in your brows properly.
MICROBLADING HAS LONGER-LASTING RESULTS THAN POWDER BROWS.
Microblading vs. Powder Brows normally lasts nine months if just one session is performed, or 18-36 months if both sessions are finished, depending on skin type, skin tone, and color chosen. You’ll require a yearly touchup with Microblading to keep the sharpness of your “hair strokes.”
Power Brows may last anywhere from nine to twelve months Period. This is due to the vegan pigment not being implanted as deeply into the epidermis. Expect to arrange your yearly touchup session roughly nine months after your initial Powder Brow Session if you notice yourself filling in your brows again.
