The Phibrows Pigments
Pigments from old days turn blue or green and we want to avoid such outcome. With Phibrows pigments, they have been extensively researched and tested to produce stable color and safe on human skin.
Pigments can not be red after long time and is not necessary to use green or blue…. There is no story about warm and cold pigment, because all phibrows pigments are warm! There is no story about cold and warm skin, because all skins are cold. In our pigments you can find only yellow, red and black – same as our skin.
So before you undergo semi permanent make up services, consider the artist, the training institution where she came from and the materials to be used on your skin. Quality is of utmost importance always and never settle for anything less on your face.
Here are some frequently asked questions which may help you out before going into semi permanent make up services:
- What is Phibrows?
PhiBrows is a manual skill of semi-permanent eyebrow drawing. It is developed by Branko Babic and has earned the reputation of creating high quality European style brows.
- What is microblading?
Microblading, also known by a variety of names such as eyebrow embroidery, microstroking, feather touch and hair like strokes is a form of permanent makeup that provides a means to partially or fully camouflage missing eyebrow hair with the appearance of simulated hair using fine deposits of cosmetic tattoo pigments.
- Is microblading the same as tattoo?
Unlike a regular tattoo, microblading is a form of tattoo artistry where pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual handheld tool instead of a machine. Hair-like strokes are drawn with the tool to mimic natural hairs in your brows. Even though it's not as deep as the regular tattoo, it's still a tattoo because pigment is implanted under the skin. The result of microblading is more on the soft natural look thank the regular tattoo which comes out as block shaded brows and it is semi permanent which lasts 6-18 months.
- How do you shape the eyebrows?
Shape of the eyebrows is calculated according to the golden intersection (phi 1.618) and face morphology.
Symmetry is achieved through PhiBrows application and 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 hairs’ growth to achieve hyper-realistic look.
When a client has very few natural hairs, manual technique is combined with the machine in order to get shadows that improve the volume. The combination of both techniques is called PhiFusion.
- How about the color of the pigment for the eyebrows?
The pigment is chosen so to match the natural hair or eyebrows’ color. After the healing, the color may become several hues lighter that the natural hairs’ color.The pigment is applied into the surface layer of the dermis using sterilized tools.Treatment is performed with disposable sterile tools and pigments are produced in accordance with the highest standards (PhiBrows microblading pigments).
- Does it hurt?
It doesn't hurt (too much). Pain is relative. Some feel more than others. Overall it feels like little scratches. You feel it, but it's not unbearable. Topical numbing cream is applied prior to procedure and tops up throughout the process to dull the discomfort.
- How long is the procedure?
Microblading takes time, the procedure takes 2-3 hours. We do not rush clients.
- Why do I need a touch up?
Correction is done a month after the treatment, because between 10 and 15% of drawn strokes disappear after the first treatment.
Color is extremely dark during the first 5 to 7 days. 7 days later, it loses 40 to 50% of its intensity. If you think the color is too dark, do not try to remove it yourself by no means. Patiently wait 7 days for the color to fade on its own after the healing of the skin.
Color duration primarily depends on how oily the skin is. The oilier the skin, the shorter the color lasts. Sweating and sun exposure also reduce color fastness.
On average, expected time until a new color refreshment is between 10 and 12 months. With oily skin it is up to 6 months. Depending on the skin quality and external factors.
The healing is fully completed after 28 days and this is when we perform an obligatory addition of the pigment that has been lost. With problematic and oily skins, we can have several additions (corrections).
- Do I need aftercare?
Definitely. Post-treatment flow makes 70% of the treatment’s success. Conscientiously obey advice, because if you don’t do so you may lose up to 80% of drawn strokes. Rinsing and applying creams is of great importance.
The success of the treatment depends on the:– skin quality – post-treatment flow and care – exposure to different external factors
All of these factors are out of the artist’s control, so any possibility to provide guarantees for the treatment is excluded.
- I am pregnant, can I undergo microblading?
No, your immune system is weaker and is susceptible to infection or allergy. This may put the pregnancy at risk.
Other factors to consider:
Breastfeeding - Yes but 6-7 hours after procedure to continue breastfeeding.
Always have a consultation with the artist before the treatment if you:– have problematic skin – have serious health problems – take some medicines – have existing old permanent make-up on your eyebrows.
- What are the other factors to consider prior to treatment?
The skin must not be in the inflammatory process or the process of healing and regeneration before each treatment.
The following treatments are not recommended 30 days before the treatment:– botox and fillers – fruit or milk acids – laser treatments – chemical peelings – exposure to strong sunlight
