Powder Brows vs Microblading?

Powder Brows can give a soft powdery effect but can also be built up and made more dense with each session if desired. Its great for clients with oily skin or clients that prefer a slightly more defined brow.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Frequently Asked Question
  • Does microblading hurt?
    During the appointment you may feel a scratching sensation and you may feel stinging from the dye and anaesthetic gel being applied, but after this it is virtually pain free. It is likened to the pain of waxing or plucking your brows - very tolerable considering the result.
  • What brow options are there and what will suit me?
    During the consultation we will discuss how you would like your brows to look and I will draw them on for you to see how they look and make sure you're totally happy before we start. Lauras main aim is to enhance your natural brow shape, and in most cases give the brow more thickness, arch and density, to the give the most natural and best result.
  • Can I have Microblading done with Laura Kate if I've had previous microblading done elsewhere?
    I will only go over someone else's work if there are no visible strokes left, and the pigment is very faded. Going over another artists work means I have to follow their shape and stroke direction, which a lot of the time would not be how I would do it if I was working on fresh brows, which ends up giving a result that I'm not completely happy with. Powder brows is a great option for covering up faded PMU as its denser in pigment, or you can also get a few removal sessions done prior. If you have had previous PMU you MUST book in for a consultation before booking a treatment so I can assess the brows.
  • How long will the microblading last?
    Microblading can take years to completely exit the skin. Top ups are recommended every 1-2 years if the skin is normal to dry. If you have oily skin then it is recommended to have a top up appointment roughly every 12 months. The longevity of the microblading is different from client to client depending on skin type, skin care, sun exposure, oil in the skin, aftercare etc. The microblading must be around 40%-50% faded before having a top up.
  • How long is the procedure?
    The initial microblading appointment is 2 hours, with the microblading only lasting 45 minutes - 1 hour. Top up appointments are shorter.
  • What is the microblading pre care?
    24 hours prior don't take any pain killers 24 hours prior don't drink alcohol or caffeine Avoid the sun for 4 days prior to treatment Make sure you don't have fake tan or sun burn on treatment are No botox for 4 weeks before or after treatment Do not dye your brows for 4 weeks prior Stop using retinols or peels 4 weeks prior Do not have facials or LED treatments for 4 weeks prior
  • What is the microblading after care?
    On the first day: Within half an hour of treatment wipe the brows with gently backwards and forwards with sterile water. Pat dry and apply a pea sized amount of gel after Repeat this process every 2 hours between 3-5 times (until the excess pigment has been removed and the cotton pad has no pigment residue on it after wiping) For the next 7 days morning and evening, wipe the brows gently with sterile water on a cotton pad and apply a pea sized amount of gel after. ​ For 14 days: Keep the brow area as cool and as dry as possible No gym, saunas, steam rooms or swimming pools Keep the brows out of direct sunlight Apply a pea sized amount of gel on the brows in the evening for 7 days after treatment Do not pick or scratch the flakes Do not to get the brows wet
  • Who cannot have microblading?
    You cannot have microblading if: You are pregnant or breastfeeding Have any infection blood disease e.g: HIV or Hepatitis A, B or C Are haemophiliac Are prone to keloid scaring or hyper pigmentation Are five weeks pre or post radiotherapy/chemotherapy treatment Are epileptic and have experienced a seizure in the last two years Are taking Warfarin or any other blood thinning medication Are taking Antabuse or Roaccutane within 6 months of treatment date Have a cold sore, fever blister or skin disorder on the area to be treated Have previously tattooed/heavily microbladed eyebrows Are under the age of 18
  • Can crisp microblading strokes be guaranteed?
    Yes I use a microblading technique that will achieve the finest and crispest stokes possible, however microblading is semi permanent and over time the strokes do soften and lose their crispness. This is something that is unavoidable but happens faster with oilier skin types (this is why powder brows is a more recommended treatment for oily skin).
  • What will my microblading look like over time?
    As microblading is semi permanent you will notice over time the microblading will gradually lighten and fade, you will also notice the strokes looking softer and less crisp, this is normal as the pigment fades. It is very important to remember that you must wait until the colour is roughly 50% faded before coming back for a 1-2 year top up. If you have lots of pigment in the skin and have a top up, you end up losing the definition between the strokes and it doesn't look as natural.
  • I have oily skin, can I get microblading done?
    Yes but there are a couple of things to bare in mind if you have oily skin: The strokes will look crisp straight after treatment, however they will soften and sometimes blur after the healing process and also more quickly that normal - dry skin over time. In cases of very oily skin the brows can look more like Ombre Powder Brows once healed, rather than crisp Microblading strokes, this is unavoidable due to skin type. Oily skin will also need more regular Top Up treatments which could be as often as every 8-12 months depending on how much oil is in the skin. In the case of very oily skin its recommended to have the Powder Brows instead of Microblading as it gives a better healed result that lasts longer.
  • Should I get my brows waxed before microblading?
    It can be preferable to let the brows grow out before the appointment so I can see where the hair naturally grows. I will tidy them up on the day of the appointment.
  • Powder Luxe vs Microblading Luxe
    Powder Luxe can give a soft powdery makeup effect, but it can also be built up and made denser with each session, if desired. It Is also great for clients with oily skin as it lasts longer and clients that feel Microblading is too natural and want a fuller, more defined finish. Powder Luxe can also be used to cover up and correct previous PMU work as long as it is faded enough. Due to the airbrush-like technique, Powder Luxe creates less trauma to the skin vs. the blading technique of microblading, so is better for clients with sensitive skin.
  • What are Powder Brows?
    Powder brows (also know as Ombre Brows) gives a soft dot powdery effect to the brow. Unlike Microblading the pigment can be built over sessions and can look extremely natural or can be built to heavy density which will look like denser powder makeup.
  • Do Powder Brows hurt?
    Generally clients feel Powder Brows is less painful than Microblading as its done with a machine and only very lightly scratches the surface of the skin. Numbing gel is also applied during treatment.
  • What brow options are there and what will suit me?
    During the consultation we will discuss how you would like your brows to look and I will draw them on for you to see and make sure you're totally happy before we start. My main aim is to enhance your natural brow shape, and in most cases give the brow more thickness, arch and density, to the give the most natural and best result. As powder brows is a denser pigment than microblading it is advisable to start off on the thinner side and build the thickness if needed, as its a more defined finish. Powder Brows can give a very soft powder effect, or can be built up to a bold powder makeup effect is desired. This is an extremely versatile treatment, great for all skin types. Powder Brows can also be used to cover up previous fade microblading or tattoo.
  • How long will Powder Brows last?
    Powder Brows can last up to 2-3 years if the skin is normal to dry. If you have oily skin then it is recommended to have a top up appointment yearly. The longevity of the pigment is different from client to client depending on skin type, skin care, sun exposure, oil in the skin, aftercare etc. Its is advisable to send pictures or book in for a consultation to see if you are ready for a top up yet, if there is too much pigment in the skin you run the risk of being sent away.
