Ombré Brows FAQ's
Please review FAQs to address any questions or concerns you may have about the Ombré Brow Procedure.
What are OMBRé Brows?
Ombré Brow is a machine technique which achieves a natural, soft powder look. They look a lot like your natural brows. They are designed so that the tail of the brow is a lot darker, while it slowly and gradually fades to a more natural shade at the beginning.
HOW LONG DO OMBRé Brows LAST?
Depending on your lifestyle, they can last for up to 2 years. Regular touch-ups are recommended to retain color and shape.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
A perfecting session is usually needed to ensure that your brows heal perfectly. This is scheduled 6-12 weeks after your initial procedure. The perfecting session gives us the ability to correct any areas that may have faded.
HOW LONG IS THE APPOINTMENT?
I allot 3 hours for your initial procedure. This gives us enough time to go over paperwork, discuss your brow goals, and design your perfect brow.
IS IT SAFE?
I use disposable items to ensure that each appointment is sanitary and safe. All needles, hand tools, wipes, and any other products used during the procedure are thrown away after each appointment, giving each client peace of mind.
DOES IT HURT?
I do all that I can to ensure that the process is as comfortable for you as possible. Topical anesthetics are applied before and during the procedure to keep pain and discomfort to a minimum. Some clients may still feel a slight discomfort, but it’s relatively painless for most.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COSMETIC TATTOOING AND STANDARD BODY TATTOOING?
Cosmetic tattoos are softer, more subtle and meant to be a natural-looking enhancement. Body tattoos use inks, while cosmetic tattoos use pigments. These pigments are designed to gently fade over time. Fading is desired as it allows the artist to make changes to color and shape over the years as client’s natural colorizatiion and facial changes occur.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY EYEBROW HAIRS?
Ombré does not require any tweezing, waxing, plucking, or shaving off the brows, and does not damage the existing brow hair.
CAN THIS COVER UP AN OLD PERMANENT BROW TATOO?
This is a case-by-case basis. Sometimes we can cover it, but most of the time we need to do a removal. Please contact me for more details.
How should I prepare for my appointment?
Please make sure to read up on Pre-care information.
How long does it take to heal?
You can wear your new brows to brunch! It takes a total of 30-40 days for the brows to completely heal. You may read more info on aftercare and healing schedule here.
What is your aftercare?
Keep your new brows dry and stay out of the sun for the first 7 days while they are healing. You may read more info on aftercare and healing schedule here.
When should i get a touchup?
Perfecting touchup sessions are schedule 6-12 weeks after your initial appointment. Keep me updated on your healing process so we can schedule the perfect time!
HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET THIS PROCEDURE?
You must be at least 18 years of age.
CAN I GET TATTOOED IF I AM PREGNANT OR NURSING?
I do not perform cosmetic tattooing on pregnant or nursing women.
When can i get botox?
Botox should be scheduled no sooner than 2 weeks before or after your ombré powder brow appointment. I’d recommend getting your brows done before botox.
i have been on accutane. can i get this done?
If you have been on prescription Accutane (acne medication) in the past, you must wait at least one year before having this procedure.
i have some health concerns, can i get this done?
This is a case-by-case basis. If you have controlled diabetes, high-blood pressure, etc, you will need to provide a doctor’s note.
If you are on blood-thinners, you need to get clearance from your doctor to be off it for 72 hours before the procedure.
For any other health concerns, please consult your primary doctor.
