What are Phibrows?
Frequently asked questions
PhiBrows is a manual skill of semi-permanent eyebrow drawing. Shape of the eyebrows is calculated according to the golden intersection (phi 1.618) and face morphology. The PhiBrow consultation is carried out at the start of the 1 hour 30 min initial treatment. At this stage, we discuss eyebrow Design and desired result.
The pigment is applied into the surface layer of the dermis using sterilised tools. The pigment is chosen so to match the natural hair or eyebrows’ colour.
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. Treatment is performed with disposable sterile tools (PhiBrush), and pigments are produced in accordance with the highest standards (PhiBrows microblading pigments).
The healing is fully completed after 28 days and the client will come back in for a mandatory 1hr top up appointment. This is when we perform an obligatory addition of the pigment that has been lost, or for most, to refresh and perfect the brows. With problematic and oily skins, this may require additional sessions.
The success of the treatment depends on the:
All of these factors are out of the artist’s control, so any possibility to provide guarantees for the treatment is excluded. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding or undergoing chemo the treatment cannot be carried out.
