Phibrows artists produce great work because they follow a very specific method that is taught to them through a rigorous 6 month training course. This course requires the artist to pass 11 levels of mastery to ensure that their methods and their work maintain a very high standard… the Phibrows standard.
The Phibrows method and tools have been meticulously designed and redesigned to aid their trained artists in producing very precise hairstrokes, perfect symmetry, and a beautiful eyebrow shape that goes with the natural shape of their client’s face and bone structure.
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 permanent makeup pigments and to provide color that stays.
It is for these reasons and more, that if you want great results with your microblading treatment, it is highly recommended that you seek out a Phibrows artist.
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. Four to six weeks later, the client returns for the second session for touch up. A touch up can take anywhere from one to two hours.
A touch up is necessary because everyone heals differently and therefore results 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.
The level of discomfort is relatively minor. Some people have reported the experience to be similar in pain to tweezing two to three hairs at the same time. Usually a topical anesthetic is used to numb the area. Topical anesthetics are safe and may contain lidocaine, tetracaine and epinephrine.
Redness and slight swelling in the area is common after the procedure. The feeling can be compared to the experience of a slight sunburn. Frequently Tylenol is used to address any discomfort.
Generally Microblading lasts six to eighteen months, depending on skin type… normal, oily, or dry, as well as the age of the client… young or mature. It is not permanent like a tattoo, because the pigments are not implanted so deeply into the skin. Skincare is also a big factor in the duration of the results. It is very important to follow aftercare instructions. To maintain the brows, touch up appointments may be done every six to eighteen months.
Selecting your microblading artist is an important decision. Choose wisely. Compare the work of various artists before choosing. Consider training and reviews.
Once you have selected an artist, discuss your expectations and desired outcome, including the shape, style, and color you wish.
Also, remember that faces are never perfectly symmetrical. Adjustments may be made during touch up, such as pigment discoloration and color correction.
And finally, remember that Microbladed brows will eventually fade away if touch ups are not done.
