Altra Beauty Lab FAQ
What is Microshading?
Microshading, also known as Powdered Brows, are a semi-permanent eyebrow styling technique that creates a soft shaded brow pencil look. This amazing technique, first developed in Asia, has been around for decades and has been gradually improving over the years. It gives great definition & depth to the eyebrows. It is particularly recommended for women with oily skin or combination skin or anyone who fills in their brows regularly with pencil or shadow. Right after the initial appointment your eyebrows appear bolder and wider than they’ll look once they heal, about 10-30% of the color will fade 2-3 weeks after the procedure. 6-12 weeks later you need to schedule a touch up session.
What are the benefits of Microshading?
Microshading is great for any skin type, unlike microblading, which may not work well on oily skinned beauties.
Your eyebrows will look fuller, but natural for everyday wear.
Microshaded brows last longer than microbladed brows, usually up to 3 years or even longer with regular 12-24 month touch-ups.
Does Microshading Hurt?
Pain level is minimal. The pigment is implanted more superficial with permanent make up application than body tattoos, that’s also the reason why it fades faster. A topical anesthesia is applied before, during and after the procedure if needed.
How long does Microshading last?
Ombre brows can last anywhere from 1 to five years. The retention will depend on a number of factors, such as lifestyle, skin type, sun exposure, health condition, etc. To maintain the pigment color it is advised to get retouches done every 12-24 months.
