What Is Microblading?
Microblading is a relatively new, manual method that allows to recreate, correct and improve the appearance of natural brow. This procedure is ideal for both people who have natural brows and those who don’t. The results are natural looking and long lasting. Microblading procedure is often considered a type of permanent makeup, however, its concept is different: the ink is deposited with manual pen the blade of which is 3 times thinner and that allows technicians to draw crisp, thin and natural looking hairs. The results often last from 9 to 18 months.
The technique of hyper-realistic eyebrow drawing in which the shape of eyebrows is calculated according to facial morphology and golden proportion (phi 1,618).The technique is intended for anyone over the age of 18 (persons under 18 who wants to correct the aesthetic problems of their eyebrows. In order to successfully perform the treatment, the skin must not be in the regeneration process, i.e. 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 (instructions for use can be found on the package). PhiTopic is available/can be ordered in the clinics where the treatment is being done.
Pain during the treatment is relative. Scared clients usually feel stronger pain, while the other clients compare such pain with the one that they feel when plucking out their 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 have their period. It is possible to use light anesthetics, in the form of cream or liquid, to completely eliminate pain during the treatment.
Symmetry is calculated using PhiBrows application. It is calculated while the clients’ eyes are closed because in that way mimetic muscles that can affect eyebrows’ symmetry are relaxed. 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 (PhiBrows microblading pigments). Touch ups, if needed, are done a month after the treatment as 10-15% of strokes may be lost after the first treatment. Inserted pigment is very dark during the 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 it 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 28 days later and then it may be necessary to add pigment that was lost during the healing process..
Post-treatment care makes 70% of total treatment success. Conscientiously stick and adhere to the given advice, 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:
exposure to various external influences.
