Powder Brows Cape Town: Get Beautiful, Natural-Looking Eyebrows That Will Last for Months

You’re unhappy with your eyebrows and feel like you can’t do anything to make them look better. You’ve tried using different eyebrow products, but they never seem to last long or give you the results you want.

With powder brows, you’ll get beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows that will last for months. The artist will use a permanent makeup digital pen machine to insert PMU pigments into the top layers of your skin, creating a powdery eyebrow effect. This is a semi-permanent make-up procedure that is similar to microshading but with better lasting results.

What are powder brows and how does it work?

Powder brows is a semi-permanent make-up procedure that gives you natural-looking eyebrows that will last for years. The artist uses a digital pen to insert PMU pigments into the top layers of your skin, creating a powdery eyebrow effect.  The intention is to mimic makeup on the brow.

This is a great option for those who want to achieve a more polished look, as it can give you fuller and more defined eyebrows. Powder brows are also a good choice for those who have sparse eyebrows, as they can help to create the illusion of thicker brows.

The Powder brows treatment typically lasts for around 3 to 5 years, after which the pigments will start to fade gradually. To maintain your powder brows, we recommend a touchup every few years to retouch the colour.

The benefits of Powder Brows

How Does the Powder Brows Procedure Work at Blink Beauty Salons?

Before Treatment

A thorough consultation starts our appointment to understand your unique requirements, style, colour, and lifestyle factors.  This helps determine our custom-made design for each client.

We proceed to map and design brows to compliment your beautiful facial features and show you the design to approve.  This step includes asking you to make different facial expressions, such as smiling or laughing. Our goal is to create beautiful brows that compliments your facial features; finding the perfect colour and shape for just your face is what we do best as experts in the field.

A strong anaesthetic is applied to the area to numb the skin and ensure that the procedure is comfortable.

During Treatment

Using a sterile, single-use needle, our brow specialist will delicately insert pigment into your skin in a shading method. The powder brows technique is much less invasive than other eyebrow procedures, and it will result in a more natural look. Our team is dedicated to ensuring your comfort during your treatment.

After the numbing is complete, the procedure will begin. The brow specialist will use a digital pen to expertly place fine pixels over the brow design area.  The pixels are so fine that they create a natural-looking effect. Finally, the pigment is carefully deposited into the skin using a fine needle. The brow expert will match the pigment to your natural hair colour.

Most clients describe the procedure as a vibration/brow massage and fall asleep.

After Treatment

After your powder brows have been applied, it’s important to avoid makeup and skincare products in the area for at least 7 days. You may also experience some redness, but this will typically subside within a few hours. Our team will provide you with aftercare instructions to help you recover quickly and achieve the best results.

6 Weeks Touchup

A touchup appointment is scheduled for you in the salon after your initial appointment.  The touchup appointment is important to evaluate the healing process, perfect some small gaps or adjust small areas if required. 

After your touchup appointment, you’ll have beautiful lasting brows.

Powder Brows last 3 to 5 years, and varies from client to client.  You are welcome to book your annual colour boost appointment to ensure you have beautiful colour and gorgeous brows all year around.

“She made me feel completely at ease“

Candy was extremely professional both with the on-line consultation and the actual process. She made me feel completely at ease, explaining each step as we progressed through the design to the end result. I did not want to walk out with an extreme change to my brows, it needed to be subtle and she did that perfectly. Thank you Candy.

“Feeling beautiful and confident“

I am so thrilled with my permanent make up - and I am so happy with the experience I had with Candy! I would recommend Candy to absolutely anybody who is considering permanent make up! From start to finish Candy made sure I was at ease and comfortable. Not only is her studio absolutely beautiful, but her knowledge of the procedures she offers is phenomenal. She answered all the questions I had, and I left the procedure feeling beautiful and confident. New brows and eyeliner for a new year (& at least the next 3-5 years 😉)
