Due to the phenomenal interest in our new treatment ,I’ve decided to write a blog post so that you can learn more about it before your appointment.
I became so interested in microblading when I realized how many of my clients were unhappy with their natural brows. We all know how much a brow shape and tint helps our brows look amazing but I quickly found that some clients wanted something longer lasting. Also I noticed, in particular, a huge number of women have had little to no eyebrows due to many factors including age, over-plucking or even due to illness. So I decided to do something about it!After been trained in other microblading schools , and feeling the need to improve and give to my clients the best eyebrows in the market, I started my training with the PhiBrow Academy. PhiBrows are the best microblading company in the world and their training is so intense and thorough, so I knew I had to become a part of Phibrows family. I completely understand that microblading can be a daunting treatment for some, so below I talk about the most F.A.Q’s and what to expect if considering microbalding.
What is it?
Microblading (semi permanent brows) is a technique of brow artistry that involves implanting pigment under the skin. I use an ultra fine blade so that I can give the appearance of real hair so that it looks as natural as possible.
Phibrows is a manual, semi permanent technique of hyper-realistic eyebrow drawing in which the shape of eyebrows is calculated according to the facial morphology and golden mean (phi 1,618)
In order to successfully perform the treatment, the skin must not be under regeneration process, in simple words it must not be damaged. If there is eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, acne, pimples or any damage in the eyebrows area, seven days before treatment the client can use –phitopic- cream that will eliminate the problems. This is available at the salon where you will do the treatment.
Pain during the treatment is relative. A scared client usually feels stronger pain, while the other may compare such pain with one that they feel when plucking out eyebrows. In addition with women having period there is an increased sensitivity to pain, so it is not recommended to do the treatment while ladies are on their period.
It is possible to use little anesthetics, in form of cream or liquid, to completely eliminate pain during the treatment.
Abrasive treatments such as peelings, fruit acids, chemical peels, laser treatments and similar should be avoided a month before the treatment. Also one month before the treatment botox and fillers should not be used.
Pigment is applied manually on the surface level of dermis. It is determined according to the natural color of the eyebrows and hair. After healing, pigment can become several nuances brighter compared to natural hair color.
Symmetry is calculated by using Phibrows application. It is calculated while the clients eyes are closed, because in that way mimetic muscles that can affect eyebrows’s symmetry are relaxed. Pictures of the prepared shapes, as well as all other important information are stored in the application.
Strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hair growth in order to achieve hyper-realistic eyebrow look.
Treatment is done by using sterile and disposable tools, while pigments are of the highest standard.
Correction is done a month after the treatment as 10-15% of strokes are lost after the first treatment. Inserted pigment is very dark during first 5 to 7 days. 7 days later, it loses up to 40% of its intensity. If you think that pigment is too dark, do not try to fade it by yourself. Be patient, first wait for 7 days until pigment fades away naturally.
For how long the pigment will be retained mostly depends on the skin oiliness. The oilier the skin is- the shorter pigment retention is. Sweating and sun exposure also affect pigment retention. On average, expected time until new refreshment of pigment is 10 to 12 months. If the skin is oily, it takes up to 6 months.
Healing is completely done 28th days later and then is necessary to add the pigment that was lost in the meanwhile. If the skin is problematic and oily, several such corrections can be made.
Post-treatment care makes 70% of total treatment success.
It is really important to follow strictly the instructions of your artist. . Because if you don’t do that, you can lose up to 80% of drawn strokes. Rinsing and applying the cream is of great significance.
How successful the treatment will be depends on.
- skin quality
- post treatment
- exposure to various external influences
None of these factors are under the Artist control, thus providing any guarantee for the treatment is not possible.
Before the treatment always consult with your artist if you.
