FAQ's

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?


Usually Microblading is done in two sessions. The first takes two to three hours. In the first session, the brow is shaped and styled to the client’s preference, and pigment is applied.. 4-8 weeks later, the client returns for the second session for touch up. This takes one to two hours.




HOW LONG IS THE HEALING TIME?


It takes about 7-10 days for healing. In that time any redness will fade and the initial darkness of the eyebrows will begin to lighten. The color will lighten over about thirty days as it completely sets in.




WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO DO A TOUCH UP?


Touch up is necessary because everyone heals differently and therefore the outcomes vary. Sometimes it is necessary to adjust the color and brow thickness by adding more strokes. In the touch up session, the final adjustments are made to assure the client’s satisfaction.




IS MICROBLADIMG PAINFUL?


The level of discomfort is relatively minor. Feels like Tweezing 2-3 hairs at the same time, or threading sensation.⠀




HOW LONG DOES MICROBLADING LAST?


This varies from person to person and depends mainly on your skin type & amp; how well you look after your eyebrows after the treatment.
If you have oily skin then generally the effects last between 6-8 months. If you have normal to dry skin then it can last up to 2-3 years. Even after this time, however, you will have some pigment left on your eyebrows which will allow you to fill it in much easier if desired.
The aftercare during the first 2 weeks of the procedure is very important in ensuring that the eyebrows heal properly (see aftercare section).
You must also always wear good sun protection (50 factor) as the sun can fade the pigments used




ARE THERE ANY PRE AND POST CARE INSTRUCTION?

Yes all clients will need an allergy test at least 24 hours before the procedure.




I HAVE PREVIOUS EYEBROW TATTOO ON MY BROWS, WILL MICROBLADING WORK FOR ME?

You cannot have this procedure if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

WHAT IS MICROBLADING?


Microblading is a semi-permanent makeup technique where a tiny blade composed by very fine needles is used to deposit pigment into the surface of the skin, in order to create natural looking hair-like strokes. This procedure is done manually using sterile and disposable tools and microblading pigment that is matching your natural eyebrow colour. It is intended to fill in patchy eyebrows and make it look more defined, or to create eyebrows entirely in the case of a complete hair loss. The result achieved is very subtle, giving the face a whole new dimension. The microblading pigment is bladed below the epidermis and the upper part of the reticular dermis of the skin, making very crisp, hair-like strokes following the natural hair growth direction. A touch up is required 4-8 weeks after the initial treatment. In order to successfully perform microbladingthe skin should not be damaged or be in regenerating process from any skin disease, procedure or other issues. The finalresult of this method is creating microbladedhair strokes flow that follows the direction of the natural hairs, fully blending in with the natural eyebrows, giving an extremelyrealistic and subtle finish. The aim of Phibrows microblading technique is to achieve such a natural effect that nobody would be able to tell that you have done any semi-permanent treatment.
