Before and After Ombre Powder Brows Care

Updated: Feb 23, 2023

Ombre powder brows, also known as "powder brows," is a semi-permanent (or permanent makeup) cosmetic tattooing technique that creates a powdered or "ombre" effect on the eyebrows. The technique uses a machine or manual tool to deposit small amounts of pigment into the skin, creating the appearance of fuller and more defined eyebrows.


Before care for ombre powder brows typically includes avoiding certain medications and products, such as blood thinners and retinoids, as well as avoiding sun exposure and excessive sweating for a certain period of time. Your technician will also likely advise you to avoid alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours prior to your appointment.


After care for ombre powder brows is important to ensure proper healing and to maintain the color and shape of your new brows. Your technician will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your new brows, which may include things like avoiding water, sweat, and sun exposure for a certain period of time, and applying a healing ointment or cream to the treated area. Additionally, you may be advised to avoid picking or scratching the treated area, as this can cause the pigment to heal unevenly or cause scarring.


It's important to follow your technician's aftercare instructions and keep in mind that the healing process can take up to two weeks. The color may appear darker and bolder in the first week or two, but it will fade to its final color in the weeks following the procedure.

It's also important to note that touch-up sessions are likely needed to maintain the desired look as the pigment will fade over time.


Before Ombre Powder Brows Care


Before getting ombre powder brows, there are several steps you should take to ensure the best possible results:

1. Consult with a professional: Before getting ombre powder brows, it's important to consult with a qualified and experienced technician to discuss your desired look and to ensure that the procedure is appropriate for you.

2. Avoid certain medications and products: Some medications, such as blood thinners and retinoids, can affect the healing process and may need to be avoided for a certain period of time before the procedure. Additionally, you may be advised to avoid using certain skincare products, such as exfoliants, on your eyebrows for a certain period of time before the procedure.

3. Avoid sun exposure and excessive sweating: Sun exposure can cause pigmentation changes in the skin and excessive sweating can cause irritation, so it's best to avoid both for at least a week before the procedure.

4. Avoid alcohol and caffeine: It is best to avoid alcohol and caffeine for 24 hours prior to your appointment as they can cause blood vessels to dilate and may cause bleeding during the procedure.

5. Come with clean and makeup-free face: It's best to come to your appointment with a clean and makeup-free face so that the technician can clearly see your natural brow shape and color.

6. Be honest with your technician about any medical conditions or allergies you have, as this can affect the procedure.

By following these steps before getting ombre powder brows, you can help ensure that the procedure goes smoothly and that you achieve the desired results.


Aftercare of Ombre Brow Sessions


After getting ombre powder brows, there are several steps you should take to ensure proper healing and to maintain the color and shape of your new brows:


1. Follow aftercare instructions: Your technician will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your new brows, which may include things like avoiding water, sweat, and sun exposure for a certain period of time, and applying a healing ointment or cream to the treated area.

2. Avoid picking or scratching the treated area: Picking or scratching the treated area can cause the pigment to heal unevenly or cause scarring, so it's important to avoid doing so during the healing process.

3. Keep the treated area clean: Gently clean the treated area with a mild, fragrance-free soap and lukewarm water. Avoid using any products that may cause irritation, such as exfoliants or harsh scrubs.

4. Protect the treated area from the sun: Sun exposure can cause pigmentation changes in the skin, so it's important to protect the treated area from the sun during the healing process.

5. Be patient: The healing process can take up to two weeks, and the color may appear darker and bolder in the first week or two before it fades to its final color.

6. Avoid sweating and heavy exercise: Sweating and heavy exercise can cause irritation and might affect the healing process, so it's best to avoid them for the first few days after the procedure.

7. Return for touch-up sessions: Touch-up sessions are likely needed to maintain the desired look as the pigment will fade over time, as per the recommendations of your technician.


It's important to follow these steps to ensure proper healing and to maintain the color and shape of your new brows. If you have any concerns or questions about the healing process, it's best to contact your technician for advice.


Who Is Not A Good Candidate For Ombre Brows?


There are certain individuals who may not be good candidates for ombre powder brows. These include:

1. Pregnant or breastfeeding women: Hormonal changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect the healing process and may make it difficult to achieve the desired results.

2. People with certain medical conditions: People with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders, or keloid scarring, may not be good candidates for ombre powder brows. It's important to disclose any medical conditions or allergies to your technician before the procedure.

3. People with very oily skin: People with very oily skin may find that the pigment does not hold as well, and may need more frequent touch-up appointments to maintain the desired look.

4. People who are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment: These treatments can affect the healing process and may make it difficult to achieve the desired results.

5. People with a history of poor healing: Individuals who have a history of poor healing or difficulty healing from cuts, scrapes, or other injuries may not be good candidates for ombre powder brows.

6. People with very sensitive skin: People with very sensitive skin may experience more pain and redness after the procedure, which can make it difficult to achieve the desired results.
