The PhiBrow™ method is based off of nature’s intelligence, by using the golden ratio (aka. Phi 1.618) to measure your total facial proportions and discover exactly where your brow should ideally be placed.
PhiBrows is a manual skill of semi-permanent eyebrow tattoo. The pigment is applied into the surface layer of the dermis using sterilized tools. The pigment is chosen so to match the natural hair or eyebrows’ colour. After the healing, the colour may become several hues lighter that the natural hairs’ colour.
Symmetry is achieved through PhiBrows application and it is calculated while the clients’ eyes are closed because in that way mimetic muscles that can affect eyebrows’ symmetry are relaxed. Strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hairs’ growth to achieve hyper-realistic look.
Treatment is performed with disposable sterile tools (PhiBrush), and pigments are produced in accordance with the highest standards (PhiBrows microblading pigments).
Colour is extremely dark during the first 5 to 7 days. 7 days later, it loses 40 to 50% of its intensity. If you think the colour is too dark, do not try to remove it yourself by no means. Patiently wait 7 days for the colour to fade on its own after the healing of the skin. Color duration primarily depends on how oily the skin is. The oilier the skin, the shorter the colour lasts. Sweating and sun exposure also reduce colour fastness.
The healing is fully completed after 28 days and this is when we perform an obligatory addition of the pigment that has been lost. With problematic and oily skins, we can have several additions (corrections). Post-treatment flow makes 70% of the treatment’s success. Conscientiously obey advice, because if you don’t do so you may lose up to 80% of drawn strokes. Rinsing and applying creams is of great importance.
Pain during the treatment is relative. Scared clients and clients who have their period usually feel stronger pain, while the other clients compare the pain to the one they feel when plucking eyebrows. It is possible to use mild anesthetics in form of cream or liquid that can entirely eliminate the pain during the treatment.
The success of the treatment depends on the:
– skin quality
– post-treatment flow and care
– exposure to different external factors
All of these factors are out of the artist’s control, so any possibility to provide guarantees for the treatment is excluded.
How long it lasts:
One to two years. If you don’t touch them up again after 12 to 18 months, they’ll eventually completely fade away. On average, expected time until a new colour refreshment is between 10 and 12 months. With oily skin it is up to 6 months.
The skin must not be in the inflammatory process or the process of healing and regeneration before each treatment.
The following treatments are not recommended 30 days before the treatment:
– botox and fillers
– fruit or milk acids
– laser treatments
– chemical peelings
– exposure to strong sunlight
After-treatment process care should avoid the following:
-bathe in public baths
-training with heavy sweating
-cosmetic products and treatments.
All of the above refers to a period of 7 to 30 days, while laser treatments, IPL treatments, fruit acid and chemical peels are never performed over the eyebrows.
Microblading Aftercare Recommendations:
As with any other cosmetic procedure, there are aftercare instructions clients need to follow to guarantee the success of the treatment. Following the aftercare recommendations is important because they will get you through the healing process successfully with a brand new pair of gorgeous eyebrows as a result. These instructions may vary from client to client so make sure to check with our trained expert to receive the right recommendations for your skin and eyebrows.
1- After the microblading procedure is finished, the client needs to rinse their eyebrows with neutral soap to remove all the previously applied cream. The cleansing needs to be done a few times but if the treatment is done later in the day, the client can cover the eyebrows area with a plastic wrap after applying the cream to protect them from drying overnight.
2- Clients need to avoid sweating excessively after the procedure. Avoiding any strenuous physical activity for at least 10 days is recommended for the same reason to keep the eyebrows dry.
3- The eyebrows and skin around them will swell due to the procedure and it is nothing to worry about as it is normal with the natural healing. The skin will develop scabs on the area that was worked on and it is really important not to remove these scabs. Removing them will slow the healing process or damage the area where the pigment was applied leaving an uneven texture.
4- Clients are recommended to avoid the sun for the next 30 days. Tanning is strictly advised against as well and even if you are planning to go out, you should wear a hat to block the sunlight. After the healing is completed, clients should use sunblock to achieve longer lasting results.
5- It is important to keep the eyebrow area moisturized. If the scabs or the eyebrow area, in general, are too dry, they will itch. Vaseline is sufficient unless your expert recommends a specific ointment and use a clean towel to pat away.
6- In the first month following the procedure; the client needs to avoid certain beauty treatments and procedures such as sunbathing, solarium, peelings, and regeneration creams.
7- Laser treatments that overlap with the same area of the microblading procedure have to be avoided as well. These treatments can cause burns in the eyebrow area and destroy the colour pigment.
8- Eyebrow area needs to be clean and moist during the first month after the treatment. If you put on makeup creams on your skin, the scabs might be removed and the pigment may fade causing the colour to look uneven.
The client needs to take great care of the skin where the microblading applied. Similar to tattoo care, if not a bit more intensive, the eyebrow area needs to be kept sterile and moisturized. The first month following the treatment is important and to have lasting effects, clients need to follow the aftercare instructions and let the eyebrow area heal without any interference.
Yes, Correction is done a month after the treatment, because between 10 and 15% of drawn strokes disappear after the first treatment. Generally it takes two sessions to get the full effectS. There are a number of factors that affect how well you retain pigment. (Oily skin doesn’t hold onto ink as well as dry skin; if you’re anemic, your body may use iron oxide in the pigment as a supplement and the tattoos will fade faster) On your second appointment, an artist might go over original strokes to darken them for a client, tweak the shape, or build up sparse brows by layering thinner strokes in between.
