Microblading

What Is Microblading?

Microblading is the newest trending treatment in North America! It’s a form of a cosmetic semi-permanent makeup performed using a manual disposable handheld tool, composed with very fine needles to hand draw each individual hair and simultaneously implant the pigment into the skin. Get the eyebrows you’ve always dreamed of.

How Is It Done?

As stated, the procedure is done by a hand tool with super fine needles. Our PhiBrow certified technicians will carefully measure to determine what the best placement and shape, then each hair stroke is gently etched into the skin. We develop a unique form, style, and feel that complements your face and personality using our microblading procedure. The results will come out incredibly natural, you’ll have a set of realistic and fuller eyebrows.  

Phibrow technicians produce outstanding work, they follow a highly precise procedure that they learn over the course of a six-month training program. This course challenges the artists to pass many levels of expertise in order to verify that their methods and work are of the highest possible quality and standard. 

The method and tools have been rigorously designed and redesigned to assist our trained technicians to produce very precise hairstrokes, perfect symmetry, and a gorgeous eyebrow shape that complements the clients face and bone structure, naturally.   

Phibrows products have also been tested and redesigned again and again to ensure the highest quality, to avoid any dangerous heavy metals found in most semi-permanent make up pigments and to provide color that stays.

 

The effects of microblading last anywhere between 1 and 3 years. Once pigment from the procedure begins to noticeably fade, you’ll need to go back to your technician for a touch-up application. Touch-ups can be necessary every six months or every year, depending on your skin type and preferred look.

Someone with thinning eyebrows or who does not want to utilise makeup to achieve fuller, more defined brows is an ideal candidate for microblading. To ensure you’re a good candidate,  our microblading technician will screen you via consultation. 

We recommend 14 days to be safe! but you might be able to do a light workout within 7-10 days if everything is healing well and you don’t sweat.

You shouldn’t workout after the procedure because of sweat.  Any kind of long-lasting contact with water (soaking and long bathing) or even oil may damage the work and ruin the pigmentation. Sweat is also full of minerals (salt) that eat out the pigment.

  • Do not work out 24 hours before procedure.
  • Avoid Facial treatments, Chemical peels or Microdermabrasion 1 month prior procedure.
  • No alcohol or caffeine 48 hours before procedure.
  • Avoid sun and tanning one week prior to procedure.
  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Advil/Ibuprofen 48 hours before procedure.
  • Avoid Fish Oil, Prenatal Vitamins, Nutritional Shakes, or supplements 48 hours prior to procedure.
  • Discontinue Retin-A at least 4 weeks prior (and avoid on eyebrow area after procedure).
  • Refrain from use of any Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) products close to the eyebrow area 2 weeks prior (and avoid on eyebrow area after procedure).
  • Botox and filler on the forehead, temple, and eye area should be avoided 1 month prior to procedure for those who do not regularly receive injectables.
  • No brow waxing, tinting, or threading one week prior 
  • Keep the the brow area clean by using a natural fragrance-free gel cleanser and water.  Hands must be freshly clean . Avoid use of abrasive washcloths or sponges.
  • Do not rub, pick or scratch the treated area. Let any scabbing or dry skin naturally exfoliate off. Picking can cause scarring and pigment loss!
  • Avoid direct sun exposure and tanning beds for a minimum of 4 weeks after your procedure.  Direct sunlight can cause the pigment to change color while it is healing and can also cause hyper pigmentation and scarring.
  • Avoid pool, sauna, steam rooms, hot showers and/or hot baths for 3 weeks.
  • Avoid sweating for a full 10 days. Any physical effort, gym, hot weather, any other activity that may cause sweating through or on the brows will expel pigment from the dermis producing poor results.
  • Avoid sleeping on your face/brows for the first 10 days.
  • Keep your bangs and hair pulled back from your face for the first 10 days.
  • No makeup or skincare products to be used on the treated area for two weeks.
  • No facials, chemical treatments and microdermabrasion for 4 weeks.
  • No botox for 4 weeks. We recommend that it’s best to wait until after your touch up heals to get Botox, as an educated injector will take your new brows into consideration when choosing where to inject.
  • After 10 days, once the area has healed completely, consider using sunblock when going out in the sun to stop the color from fading.
  • Eyebrow tinting should not be undertaken for 2 weeks after your procedure.
