Powder Brows Q & A

What are powder brows?

Powder brows are a semi-permanent kind of makeup that creates the appearance of fuller, more colorful eyebrows. The process of applying powder brows requires a tattoo gun that deposits pigment into the brow to give a ‘powdered look’ in order to achieve fuller-looking brows.

In comparison, powder brows are often a good fit for people who have plenty of eyebrow hair but desire:


  • Darker or more colorful eyebrows
  • Eyebrows that appear filled-in
  • Powdered-looking eyebrows
  • The look of eyebrow makeup


The technique your aesthetics specialist uses involves puncturing your skin to add semi-permanent color and create the appearance of an eyebrow pencil or eyebrow powder. If your eyebrows are thin, your provider might recommend combining microblading with powder brows to achieve the most aesthetically pleasing results.

What should I expect during the procedure?

When you arrive for a powder brow appointment, your provider numbs the area with a topical anesthetic to make the procedure feel comfortable. She uses an innovative micro-pigmentation machine containing needles that puncture your skin to apply color.

You might feel slight pressure during the procedure, but you shouldn’t feel pain. The entire process might last 2-3 hours from start to finish.

What happens after powder brow treatment?

After you receive semi-permanent powder brows, follow the aftercare instructions your provider gives you, which often include avoiding the following for a week or longer:


  • Strenuous workouts
  • Dust, dirt, and smoke
  • Steam rooms, swimming pools, and saunas
  • Chemical peels, dermabrasion, tinting, lasers, and Botox®
  • Sun exposure
  • Makeup or other cosmetic products on the treated area


As your new brows heal, you might notice a dry, itchy film that forms within a week after treatment. Avoid flaking or peeling it off and use aftercare cream if your aesthetics specialist recommends it. You might require a color touch-up 6-8 weeks after the procedure to achieve optimal results.

How long do powder brows last?

The color of powder brows may fade over time but might last 1-3 years or longer. You can touch up your brows as needed about every two years to maintain beautiful brows.
