Microblading is an advanced brow technique that uses a superfine row of needles to deposit pigments into the skin to create thin, hair-like strokes. Microblading is ideal for creating a very full and realistic looking brow and is becoming an increasingly popular method in permanent makeup.
Microblading is quite similar to hair stroke cosmetic tattoo using the machine method; however, the strokes are finer and are not implanted as deeply in the skin. Therefore, brows created with microblading look better but are not as permanent. They should be considered semi-permanent and usually last around 12 months before a retouch is required.
During the treatment, after a brow consultation, the new brow shape outline is penciled on, the brow area is numbed, and then pigment is implanted into the epidermis skin layer. This is done using very tiny needle strokes. These are built up into the new shape, and the area is gradually made denser with lots of tiny hair strokes, depending on the desired result. The Phi-brows technique we practice gives our clients amazing results, as they are in the hands of a truly skilled artist.
During your consultation we will work together to discuss your goals, preferences, shape of your brows and the problem areas you wish to address. We will also discuss the effect you wish to achieve and your preferred brow shape and design.
We can advise and inspire and show examples of brow shapes which will work with each client’s face shape and brow type. We will also talk about any questions or concerns you might have.
If you have any concerns, we will be happy to address them and help you decide on a treatment plan that will work for you. Don’t wait any longer to get the beautiful brows you’ve been dreaming of!
Microblading Session & Perfecting Touch-Up Session
Microblading is a 2 step process, usually 4-6 weeks apart. It is important to complete both the initial procedure and touch up.
STEP 1 Microblading Session: The initial procedure takes approximately 2-3 hours. During this time, we will discuss your desired brow look, choose a color and draw the initial outline of the procedure area for your approval. Though our faces are NOT perfectly symmetrical (one side is usually flatter than the other), we do our very best to create as much symmetry as possible! As we like to say BROWS ARE SISTERS, NOT TWINS. Once you are satisfied with the basic shape and symmetry, the area is then traced over and pigment is applied with a disposable microblading hand tool. This procedure uses a manual hand tool and not a machine.
STEP 2 Perfecting Touch-Up Session: The second stage of the treatment is a Perfecting TOUCH-UP appointment. The touch up that takes approximately 1.5 hours. Touch ups are done no earlier than 4 weeks after your initial procedure and no later than 8 weeks. If you do not schedule your touchup within 10 weeks, you will be required to pay an additional fee.
It is IMPERATIVE you complete the perfecting touch-up treatment. Without it, the results will not be optimal. Color will fade significantly within 4 weeks as the skin heals, peels and fades. The touch up corrects any irregularities in the microbladed hair strokes, color tones and finishes the process. A perfecting session after 4-6 weeks is necessary as everyone heals differently and the outcome will vary. Certain areas may not pick up during the first session and will need to be refilled. Pigment color may need to be adjusted, brow thickness and more strokes can be added. Individuals with oily skin often require a deeper shade during the touch-up session as the oils tend to lighten the pigment. Most importantly, your touch up session is when we refine your brows to ensure it looks perfect and retains the color for the whole year!
**Occasionally a third touch up (4-6 weeks later) is necessary for certain clients where the pigment does not take as well to the skin.*
