As one of the leading treatments in the beauty industry, PhiBrows is a semi-permanent eyebrow drawing technique, basing the shape of the eyebrow on the facial morphology and the golden ratio (Phi 1.618). Symmetry is calculated using bone structure, strokes are always drawn in the direction of natural hair growth and pigment is chosen according to the natural eyebrow and hair color, in order to achieve as natural look as possible. This technique is intended for all persons over the age of 18, or may be performed on minors with compulsory parental consent who wish to correct any irregularities in their natural eyebrows or to change their shape (facial asymmetry).
For a successful outcome of the treatment, the skin must not be in the process of regeneration, i.e. must NOT be damaged, broken, sun-tanned, or burned. Please, STOP using the following at least 45 Days prior to treatment: Retinol, fruit acid peels, chemical peels, laser treatments, Botox and Fillers.
Prior to the treatment it is necessary to consult the Artist if you:
DO NOT CONSUME CAFFEINE on the day of your appointment, nor alcohol/drugs 24 hours before.
The treatment is performed using sterilized, disposable tools that create micro cuts on the skin while manually inserting pigment into the epidermis. The inserted pigment is much darker during the first 5-7 days, after which, the intensity of the color decreases by as much as 40%. The healing process may last up to 28 days, after which, a new amount of pigment is added to the faded sections of the eyebrow. In case the skin is too oily or problematic, the process may need additional touch up sessions.
Pigment retention depends on skin oiliness. Higher concentration of oil in the skin reduces the duration of pigment. Perspiration and sun exposure affect pigments as well. A 6-8 Week Touch Up is recommended to perfect the healed results, although it is not required. Although pigment can be retained for up to 5 years, touch ups are recommended to refresh the color- typically 1-3 years after the treatment. If the skin is too oily, corrections are required sooner.
The first step in the healing process: 30 minutes after treatment, gently clean the eyebrows with PhiWipes. Clean the skin until there are no longer visible traces of lymph on the wipes. This way, surplus lymph is removed in order to prevent the formation of crusts, which have an adverse effect on the pigment. After cleaning the skin, apply ointment prescribed according to skin type and lifestyle. Repeat this process (wipe and ointment) 3-5 times day.
It is not necessary to wash the eyebrows for the following 9 days because lymph will no longer appear. However, it is necessary to apply the ointment 3-5 times per day during this period. Make sure you keep the eyebrows dry when washing the face or taking a shower during this period.
Since any change in the structure of the skin (creation of thin connective tissue) diminishes pigment retention, it is very important for the skin to heal properly.
The successful outcome of the treatment also depends on the following:
Artists have no control over any of the three factors listed above and therefore cannot guarantee the desired outcome of the treatment.
Proper post-treatment care accounts for 70% of the success of the treatment. It is essential to adhere to the advice provided regarding eyebrow care until the skin has fully recovered. Otherwise, up to 80% of the drawn hair may be lost. It is important that you wash your face and apply the ointment regularly.
During the first 10 days, avoid applying any other products or makeup (powder or foundation) in the eyebrow area. Also, avoid exercises which cause excessing perspiration, saunas, and facial massages.
In the next 30 days, you must avoid the following:
During the healing process, you must avoid laser treatments in the treated area (fraction laser, IPL) since lasers may destroy pigment and cause inflammation. Pigment may fade faster if you are on antibiotics or taking hormones
